WH Park walks down the Long & Winding Royal Road with Ed Kody from the Pod Van Dam podcast. Ed and WH skirt along the parameters of the show’s boundaries to the year 2000, discussing a very important match for Jun Akiyama as he takes on former mentor and now rival, Mitsuharu Misawa from February 27 of that year.
WH and Ed discuss their mutual appreciation for Akiyama, the background between him and Misawa going into this match, and the ramifications of the outcome.
