  1. They said he hung himself in a schoolyard and they showed him throwing a rope noose over a tree. I mean, it’s sad enough as it is.
  2. I just spent six weeks writing about FMW for a project that never seems to end and the episode was fun, if slight. The only reaction you can have to Onita is: I love you but FUCK you. Fuyuki's book continues the narrative that Arai was too nice and a bad businessman, but in all honesty he screwed Arai as much as Onita, making the shows all about himself, but without the monetary success of the Onita years. The episode was described as Onita's FMW, though, so I guess they achieved their brief. The story of FMW's final hours, and Arai's mad dash around Tokyo to get the money to pay off the loan sharks, deserved an airing, and the inaccuracy about Arai's suicide made me mad, but I enjoyed the show.
  3. Hello hive mind… does anyone know where I could find results from the 80/90s Japan Women’s Pro-Wrestling, pre the split into JWP and LLPW?
  4. His dad Don was, and Dan Haggerty wrestled bears in exhibitions and was a member of the Calufilower Alley Club. Buy my 'zine.
  5. Not sure if this is the right place to ask but who can tell me anything about Lato Kiraware and Lawi Napataya from Fujiwara-gumi?
  6. If anyone would like to read more about Nick Gage, I did a two-part biography for my 'zine, which I've put up on a blog thing: Part 1 and Part 2
  7. SCREAM FOR ME, LONG BEACH! The VERY METAL issue of WCBA is here, with the full run down on ALL of WCW's heavy metal gimmicks, the lowdown on WARHORSE, the disaster that was the WWF's collaboration with Chaos! Comics, and the collision of wrestling and GWAR! 44 pages, black & white, 10pt Trebuchet MS You can get a copy posted to your house by sending £3.50 (£4.50 for anywhere outside the UK) through PayPal to [email protected] Please tick the "sending to a friend or family" box and put your address in the notes so I know where to send it to!

  8. I’d like to introduce you to Cole Radrick. Who even wears a NASCAR-style ring jacket.
  9. Masa Fuchi after the splitters left to form NOAH. 36 years old and carried that company for the first year, post-split.
  10. Issue 11 of the ongoing scientific study to prove that Wrestling Can Be Anything dips into the NOW! with a look at the Marvel Comics/AAA lucha crossover, and then travels back in time for a story that involves Nazis, fake Nazis, champion boxers, skyscraper-heisters, and ghoststoppers, as well as finishing up the histories of W*ING & Kevin Sullivan! 44 pages, black & white, 10pt Trebuchet MS You can get a copy posted to your house by sending £3.50 (£4.50 for anywhere outside the UK) through PayPal to [email protected] Please tick the "sending to a friend or family" box and put your address in the notes so I know where to send it to!

  11. Double post! Cagematch's entries for these monsters are all over the place. They list Bob Baragail as working a lot of them in W*ING when he only really turned up right at the end. They undersell Rafael Rodriguez's tenure as Jason considerably.
  12. Working out Puerto Rico history is tricky but Chicky Starr took credit for the gimmick, bringing in Moffat from a New Japan tour to play Jason. Moffat said he hadn't even seen any Jason movies at that time and had to rent them in Japanese while in Tokyo. After a six month run in PR, he took the gimmick back to Calgary.
  13. It was Doug Gilbert, as one of the masked Nightmares with Danny Davis.
  14. I just finished writing a history of W*ING for my 'zine (cheap plug: wrestlingcanbeanything.bigcartel.com) and based it around the various monsters. The first Freddy was Tommy Gilbert in Memphis, and Memphis also had the first Leatherface (Mike Samples). Jason started in Puerto Rico with Karl Moffat under the hood, and The Boogie Man (Eddie Gilbert), Crypt Keeper (Jose Estrada Jr), and Grave Digger were W*ING originals.
  15. It's (almost) Christmas! And what better way to celebrate than with a look at some of the horrible ways that wrestling and Santa have combined, along with more on W*ING and Kevin Sullivan, AND a look at the brief lucha career of Los Thundercats!
