– Taiji Ishimori recently spoke with Muscle and Fitness about performing at Madison Square Garden for the G1 Supercard and what he’s learned over the years.

He said: “The depth of pro wrestling. As I’ve wrestled for many years, I kind of started to feel like I knew everything about what pro wrestling is, but after working with some of those legends, I realized that there is still so much in pro wrestling that I must learn and acquire. With time, comes respect. When I started wrestling, and I was young, I wasn’t really interested in tomorrow, or any potential injuries that I might get. Now [at 36], I consider those things more, and I’m a little bit more careful about it.
