Twitter user @STRIGGA reports that Onita was told that it would be four months for him to walk normally again. Onita reportedly stated he would still attend WrestleMania weekend on Apr 4 and 5, but would only be signing autographs. 

Onita is advertised to appear at Joey Janela's Spring Break III on Apr. 5. He was the first name announced for the event, though no opponent was given.

Onita recently wrestled at the Giant Baba Memorial show on Feb. 19, teaming with Hideki Hosaka, Kendo Kashin & Hideki Suzuki to defeat Great Kojika, Mitsuya Nagai, Shuji Ishikawa & Hikaru Sato. You can find full results from that show here.
