I remember that day. Shiraishi had some ideas to turn AJPW into a Royal Road/Shoot/Inoki-ism hybrid. I used to read his blog in Japanese  He really killed off AJPW's Pro Wrestling Love Era momentum. Masa Funaki and more criticized or disapproved of Shiraishi ideas and knew Baba certainly wouldn't want the "Pro Wrestling is the strongest" approach in AJP.

That Joshi match is wild, Crane Yu has only had three matches since 1985. I assume she won't be taking any bumps. I just wonder how that works, like she is home gardening or whatever and Dump calls her "hey wanna wrestle in a month?" and she is free that night and figures what the hell may as well.

Another tag for the NJPW/AJPW show...Tana and Kento vs Jake Lee and Sanada. More announced people in what matches in link below, lot of intermixing unlike the NJPW/NOAH show. We will see if NJPW protects AJPW unlike NOAH.

Apparently SANADA is out with an injury. He seemed like the likely fall guy.

I know NJPW has started doing the occasional ref stoppages in their matches again, even if the injuries are legit like Ibushi. (Okada vs Ibushi G1 finals last year.) To write men off the shows.

Wonder who will replace him. Who else has a connection to AJPW in NJPW?

DDT

Not sure what kinda match they will play, but both top men below are the heirs to AJPW 90's. I wish they bring out multiple finishers and more tropes from that era.

Jaded puro fan here - is there anything from 2022 so far that's worth tracking down and giving a watch? I'm pretty out of the loop but still feel like keeping a toe in the water every now and then. Thanks in advance!

Is the All Japan streaming service any good? Thinking of checking it out.

In a related note the Wrestle Universe app is tremendous.
