LaRocca: Funaki vs. Akiyama title change

I finally watched Akiyama vs Funaki AJPW from 8/20.  I loved it and I
loved the idea of doing a quick title changing match. 

AJPW Triple Crown Matches normally goes over 20 minutes, but a finish like this
brings back the unpredictability back into the title matches.  Funaki
might be older and seemed have lost his fire, but I think he will do
fine as a Triple Crown Champion.

Plus, I feel it is something different then Suwama or Mutoh and Seiya Sanada is not ready yet.   Like you said in the WON newsletter, it really doesn't matter who is
champion for AJPW at this point.

Who is the strongest of these Hall of Fame candidates?


What do you believe is the second most popular promotion right now in the U.S?
