Fumi Saito, the man who literally wrote the book on Antonio Inoki, gives his thoughts and memories of Inoki on this very special episode of Pacific Rim.

Fumi and I talk about Inoki's history and legacy: his creativity, his greatest matches and opponents, his place in history, the story of his WWE title win, why his wrestling was seen as the "real wrestling" in the 70s and 80s, the time Fumi had dinner with Inoki, Stu Hart & Gene Kiniski in Vancouver, and would have the reconciliation with NJPW happened had Inoki lived longer? Did anyone actually know the real Kanji Inoki? 

We talk all that and much more on this very informative episode of Pacific Rim.
