All Japan Pro Wrestling took to their official social media platforms to announce the passing of Yutaka Yoshie. After his match on March 10th, he returned to the backstage area and it is noted that his condition ‘deteriorated’. 

He was rushed to a hospital but All Japan later learned that he passed away.
