    "It is not the size of the man in the fight, but the size of fight in the man." ~Lo Ki

      I always remembered him saying:

      "It is not the size of the fighter, but the size of the fight he will bring"

      Usually followed by "all you can do is be ready". Was even part of his entrance video in early 2004 in TNA. Is your quote what he would say in other promotions?

      • Vampirofan says:

        Just a paraphrase of what Rey Mysterio Jr says, "it's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog." Gonna miss Low Ki though. Should have been a bigger name than he is.

        • Pippin says:

          You're right, he should have been. He, along with Jerry Lynn and AJ were the original X-Division champions and were the best thing going in TNA for the very early shows. His feud with Christopher Daniels and his appearance in Ultimate X.2 were great! When TNA made the great decision of bringing him back as Senshi, he again put on some good matches and was a good X-Division champion. How I wish he was still kicking people in the face in TNA.

          Best of luck to him for whatever he does next.

    One of the most odd fitting voice:stature ratios of all time. I was kind of hoping he'd come back to TNA one day.

    Was always holding out hope he would end up back in TNA sooner or later. Doesn't seem to be the case now.
    Really big shame, great wrestler

    Will always remember him when he teamed up with an styles and jerry Lynn against the flying elvises in the first x division match in tna. Epic was an understatement, for an opening match.

  5. TheMiwyun says:

    He should start rapping now. Still keep the name Low Ki. He has a blacker voice than all of NWA combined..

  6. Get_Carter says:

    Wishing him the best. Another example of wrestlers getting injured on the job and then not getting the medical coverage they were promised – and need.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      and anytime I hear anyone say "why would anyone want to go to WWE" this is one of my main reasons…im sorry, but if you get injured WHILE working a match for any one promotion they should at least cover the cost of getting the proper medical care.
