Re: BURNING SPIRITS #7: AJPW RYOGOKU KOKUGIKAN ~ NEW EXPLOSION REVIEW

I have been interested in the Japanese indy scene for over 20 years and while I don't have the time to follow or view everything available, I do l...

Re: Burning Spirits #6: AJPW Ryogoku Kokugikan~New Explosion

Great stuff guys. I'm leaning more to Joe's point of view than yours cus I'm not the greatest with these old time legends, but Fuchi/Onita is one legend match I'm really excited for. Hope AJPW does well and hopefully picks up more loyalist wrestlers in the months to come. Yeah I mean this is an abs...

Re: Burning Spirits #5: HEAT UP

Bob Sapp vs. Kazuhiro Tamura is certainly not a match I ever thought could happen. Great Ep guys, was nice to hear about the HEAT UP origins. It's sot of odd to say but HEAT UP for me doesn't have the legacy of either AJPW or NOAH and it's obviously a step beneath. Makes it feel a bit more like "my...

Re: Burning Spirits #4: BJW Saikyou Tag League

FYI it's the same match posted as last week because I'm an idiot and posted the wrong one.
