Japanese wrestling legend Eiji Ezaki who wrestled under the ring name Hayabusa has passed away aged 47.
Hayabusa will be best known to casual fans from his tenure in ECW where he faced Sabu in an excellent tag match, among others, in 2001 Hayabusa suffered a broken neck and was paralysed in an in ring accident where he lost footing performing a springboard moonsault.
He would go onto walk again 14 years later showing his remarkable fighting spirit which can been seen in the moving video below.
Hayabusa was a talented and innovative wrestler and his matches at ECW, FMW are testament to his talent.
Our condolences go out to his friends and family of Ezaki.
Rest in Peace.
