Brian Elliott from HardCopy.ie joins WH Park on the Long & Winding Royal Road to talk about a match with many ramifications for All Japan Pro Wrestling: Toshiaki Kawada vs. Akira Taue from the 1993 Champion Carnival.

Brian was the editor of the excellent Fighting Spirit Magazine based out of the UK and is a massive fan of All Japan of the ‘90s. He and WH share their thoughts on the match but spend most of their time discussing the backgrounds of Kawada, Taue and their later formation of the Holy Demon Army.

You can watch two versions of the match on YouTube (I recommend viewing the hand-held version first):
