DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: The death of Giant Baba


Dave Meltzer's Giant Baba obituary from the February 8th, 1999, Wrestling Observer Newsletter may be one of his most massive obituaries in his history.

The size of a small book, the story of Baba is woven into many of the most important stories of pro wrestling history, especially that of Japan. We all know Dave is a huge fan of Japanese pro wrestling, so it's no surprise that this was one of his most well researched and informative stories.

From his time as a student of Rikidozan to his final match and secret sickness, the story of Giant Baba is an incredible one so let's discuss that on this week's DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show.
