Hayabusa only spent a few months wrestling in America during his career, including appearing in ECW Heatwave in 1998, but he was an iconic figure in the professional wrestling world.

He worked in both Japan and Mexico where he forged a unique career marked by matches involving barbed wire, explosives, and other dangerous things.

In 2001, he was paralyzed after slipping and falling during a match, landing on his head and cracking two vertebrae.

Nevertheless, years later a video (below) emerged showing the wrestler triumphantly walking into the ring again:

Our thoughts are with the wrestler's family, friends, and devoted fans — many of whom are sharing their condolences on Twitter (below):
