Pacific Rim: Pedro Morales in Japan

Former WWWF Champion Pedro Morales, who passed away yesterday, was very famous in Japan. He was even featured in a comic book (pictured). On this edition of the Pacific Rim Pro Wrestling Podcast, Fumi Saito shares stories of Morales, who was promoted as a friend of Giant Baba and then later as a rule-breaking enemy of Antonio Inoki.

We also talk about new IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jay White's title victory, his growth as a performer, his career path, and what the future may hold.

In addition, we talk about the New Japan Cup, the G1 Supercard at MSG, Kota Ibushi's new contract, reaction to Kenny Omega leaving Japan, Mayu Iwatani, women's wrestling in Japan, and your #AskFumi questions about Ultimo Dragon and The Great Sasuke in NJPW and what the fanbases were like in the 70s, 80s, and 90s for All Japan and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
