Originally published at L&WRR #15: Akira Taue Vs. Steve Williams (4/20/96) w/ Joey Bay - POST Wrestling | WWE NXT AEW NJPW UFC Podcasts, News, Reviews
Joining WH Park for the first time on the Long & Winding Royal Road is Joey Bay. Continuing from where Episode 14 left off, they jump one year ahead to April 20, 1996 and that year’s Champion Carnival Final with the returning Akira Taue and his opponent, “Dr. Death” Steve Williams.
WH and Joey look at how well Taue does in making up for William’s physical state at this point in his career, and how 1996 was pivotal for Dynamic T.
