On this week's Pacific Rim Pro Wrestling podcast, Fumi Saito and I preview the New Japan x Stardom Historic X-Over event.

Not only is the show a rare mix of male and female talent in Japan, but the women - KAIRI and Mayu for the IWGP Women's title - will go on last. 

Fumi and I also talk about the career of the legendary Jun Akiyama. From his rookie year to All-Japan, Pro Wrestling NOAH and DDT, we talk about where he ranks in the pantheon of Japanese pro wrestling ahead of his AEW debut Friday.

Plus, we talk tag team tournament time in Japan, JONAH's decision on returning to WWE or staying with NJPW, and more.
