Pacific Rim: Review of Giant Baba memorial show from Tokyo


From Tokyo while driving in traffic, Fumi Saito and Jim Valley review the Giant Baba 20th Anniversary Memorial Show. Immediately after leaving Sumo Palace, Fumi and Jim give you their thoughts on the event, its historical significance, and the history and politics behind many of the choices made on the show.

Stars who appeared on the show included Hiroshi Tanahashi, Kento Miyahara, Mil Mascaras, Dos Caras, Jun Akiyama, Jinsei Shinzaki, Yuji Nigata, Onita, and more. In addition, Abdullah the Butcher held his official retirement ceremony as friends and foes from his career like the original Tiger Mask, The Great Muta, Stan Hansen, and Dory Funk Jr. paid their respects. 

While not the best wrestling show, you'd be hard-pressed to find a card with more legendary talent. 

I apologize from my mistakes while recording. I get some names confused. I'm very tired from a long day, plus I'm still a little jet lagged.
