The tenets of puroresu, namely Strong Style and King’s Road, were infused in the DNA of every budding Japanese star who took up the calling after seeing the path Rikidozan paved…but in 2017, it could be argued that these tenets have moved from being solely attributed to Japan and Japanese stars to the atmosphere of promotions you would least likely expect it to be associated with. One man, against all odds, vowed to uphold the creed since making an impact more than twenty years ago – and did so without uttering a word. Born mute, Moriyama refused to let it stop him, and through incredible perseverance trained harder than everyone else in order to be the best. Will the world be ready to see what Moriyama-san can do? Time will tell.
|Tosaki Miyazawa: <’It’s no secret that in Japan, there are so many of the same type of wrestler. That’s just an observation, uh. If you look at Moriyama-san, you could be forgiven for thinking the same thing – but the difference here is that he cannot speak. He was born mute, uh. Everything about him is serious, as it should be, but made all the more astonishing about his laconic nature. Having said that – the man is an enigmatic individual through and through – and his talent is, like many in STARKNESS – one that should be seen on a larger scale. I hope that Moriyama-san is up to the challenge – I have a good feeling he will be, but let’s see, uh.’>|
