Former WCW Champion Diagnosed With Cancer and Hell in a Cell Adds Match


Legendary Japanese women’s wrestler Akira Hokuto, who holds the distinction of being the only woman to ever hold the WCW Women’s Championship, recently announced on her official blog that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The news was later confirmed by Huffington Post Japan, as well as Hokuto’s former manager, Sonny Onoo, on his official Facebook page. Onoo has since shared a post stating that Hokuto underwent surgery on September 24th to remove a malignant tumor from her right breast.

Hokuto has won a slew of championships in Japan and was the first to be granted the World Championship Wrestling women’s title.

The next WWE pay-per-view, Hell in a Cell has added another match as Bray Wyatt will take on Roman Reigns in a the satanic structure known as Hell in a Cell. This is normally the end of a feud but with Reigns and Wyatt one can never be sure.

The pair began their rivalry all the way back at the Money in the Bank showcase and had their first match at Battleground where Bray won with an assist to a returning Luke Harper. The team of Harper and Wyatt would lose in a tag match against Reigns and Ambrose at Summerslam, however when they added Braun Stroman to the mix they were able to defeat Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho in their Night of Champions contest.

Whoever is to win in this bout will probably still pro-long the feud as Survivor Series is the next pay-per-view event and Team Reigns vs an extended version of The Wyatt Family seems to smart of a move to make right now. However after last week’s Monday Night Raw main event between Reigns and Wyatt they’ve added fuel to their rivalry’s fire in an epic encounter.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
