Kota Ibushi Issues Apology For Criticised Blood & Guts Performance
Kota Ibushi has apologised to fans for his performance at AEW Dynamite: Blood & Guts which draw criticism from some fans.
After a lengthy absence from the ring, aside from a two-match stint in GCW earlier this year, Kota Ibushi made his AEW debut last week in the promotion’s infamous Blood & Guts match.
Despite being on the winning team, fans were ultimately critical of The Golden Star’s performance in the bout with many claiming he didn’t look as sharp or refined as he usually does inside the ropes.
In a new post on social media, Ibushi addressed his performance in the Blood & Guts match. Ibushi claimed that his wrestling boots were too thin and as a result, the thumbtacks and glass from the bout penetrated his boots which caused him walking difficulties.
It’s my fault that I didn’t know thumbtacks and glass after all this time.
I have thin wrestling shoes, so it penetrated and it was just painful from the middle, and I ended up moving like an old man.
I’m sorry! Far from being unable to kick, both ankles were stiff
Life with a cane for the first time in my life No, I’ll be cured tomorrow! That is Kota Ibushi!”
