TheĀ Manami Toyota retirement is now official. She is considered by many to be the best female performer in the history of Japan. November will be the final month that she wrestles. Toyota made her debut in 1987. She was just 16 years old at the time. There will be a special anniversary show taking place later on this year. At one point in time, Manami was considered the biggest star in All Japan. Neck and back issues are big reasons why she is hanging up the boots. The Wrestling Observer has credited her with 17 matches that were given five star ratings. That is quite the feat.
