Emiko Kado (門 恵美子 Kado Emiko ?) (January 28, 1976 - April 9, 1999) was a Japanese female professional wrestler, who died after a wrestling injury, only months into her professional career.

While her wrestling career was brief, Kado's wrestling-related ring death is the second to occur in Japan since the death of female wrestler Plum Mariko who died after receiving a Lyger Bomb during a JWP Project match on August 16, 1997.

Career

Kado had her first match in February, 1999 at the ARSION First Anniversary Show at Tokyo's Korakuen Hall in front of 1550 people, losing to Aja Kong. Kado went on to wrestle fourteen more matches in her short career, losing every one. In her last match, on March 31, 1999, she teamed up with Michiko Omukai to face the team of Mariko Yoshida and Mikiko Futugami. About 22 minutes into the match she suffered a serious injury from a blow to the head, later discovered to be a sprained acute membrane in her brain. Kado was rushed to a hospital in Fukuoka, where she died from internal bleeding on April 9.
