One of STARDOM’s brightest stars, Giulia, has been out of action for a month with a neck injury, and she has now given us a timetable on when she hopes to return to the promotion.
Giulia recently spoke to Tokyo Sports, where revealed that she is about to resume in-ring training, and is hoping to return at or by the Ryogoku Kokugikan show at the end of the year. She said:
“I walked to the sauna every day and resumed light [weight training]. I’m about to resume ring practice. (Doctor) says, ‘If you take a rest for 3 months, you will be completely cured,’ so I want to return by the end of the year. The goal is the Ryogoku Kokugikan (show) on December 29th.
Giulia revealed that she was injured at the end of August, but powered through as she did not want to miss the NJPW MetLife Dome show, saying:
“(I was) hurt at the end of August. When I (tried) to get up in the morning, it [felt] like the end of the world. However, there was also the New Japan Pro-Wrestling MetLife Dome (show on September 5th), and there was also 5STAR (Grand Prix), so there was no option to take a rest. During that time, Syuri gave me massages all the time. Acupoints on the neck. Thanks to Syuri, I was able to reach my limit.
Giulia ended up being pulled from the 5STAR Grand Prix, and she went on to express her disappointment at missing the tournament, saying:
“It hurts and (I regretted it), so I stayed in the room all the time and cried and cried. My mother and my local friends brought me some cakes.”
Giulia has been one of the breakout stars in Joshi over the last few years, so we all eagerly await her return to the ring, as well as wishing her a full and complete recovery.
