Japanese Puroresu Legend Koji Kanemoto Arrested for Altercation with His Wife

Japanese puroresu legend Koji Kanemoto was arrested this past Friday after an altercation with his wife, according to a report from Fightful.com and Yahoo! Japan.

Kanemoto, a five-time New Japan Pro Wrestling IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, issued the following statement to the police about the situation:

"I am certain that I had violence against my wife. I was suspected of cheating because she went through my cell phone without permission. It was a flat-handed and one-shot hit."

The 52-year-old Kanemoto is currently a freelance wrestler in Japan. He has competed for New Japan Pro Wrestling, All Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling NOAH, Pro Wrestling Zero1, and other promotions. Fans may have seen his Koji Clutch submission maneuver utilized by the likes of C.M. Punk, Christopher Daniels and others as well.

In 1998, Kanemoto was named "Most Outstanding Wrestler of the Year" in The Wrestling Observer Newsletter awards.
