This was a really good match. I certainly didn’t see the after-match ending coming. NJPW in 1990 was a beast with its work-rate. Looking forward to future instalments of the podcast.

Liger piece i did a few years ago.

That itd only be right to post to help celebrate the launch of another great podcast


I LOVED this. I loved hearing about the tape collecting scene and how somebody thought about it in the 90s. Very cool conversation.
