While speaking to the Strait Times, Nakamura admitted that he wants to retire at 45. He didn’t say that was the absolute cut-off age, but it is the same age that Ichiro Suzuki retired so that seems like a good time to do it.
“I want to wrestle at least five more years. I’m 39 now. (Former MLB) baseball player Ichiro Suzuki retired at 45 and he was such an influence for Japanese sportsmen, especially those who lived in other countries. And so I need to wrestle until I’m 45 years old.”
The Ringside View: With 6 years left till his retirement The King Of Strong Style surely has the WWE Championship in his sights which he is yet to obtain. Although Nakamura seems to be content with any role WWE gives him at the point its definitely something fans would love to see before he calls it a career.
