Fans were so emotional at Shibata's attack on KENTA that they were literally crying. That's according to our Fumi Saito who was there live at Budokan Hall for the finals of the G1 Climax and talks about the experience on this week's Pacific Rim Pro Wrestling podcast.
We talk about the fans' reaction to Kota Ibushi's tournament win and whether or not he can beat Okada at Wrestle Kingdom in the Tokyo Dome and go into whether or not Jay White has been accepted as a top heel. We also discuss the incredible depth of the New Japan roster including Minoru Suzuki, Sanada, Takagi, and Will Ospreay.
We then go rapid fire on Jon Moxley, Juice Robinson, Riho, Bea Priestley, Arisa Hoshiki, Stardom, AEW, Debbie Malenko, and wrap up with your #AskFumi questions on the Super J Cup, ownership of old tape libraries, the most respected Japanese announcers, Fumi's 90s TV show pilot with Madusa and much more.
