WOR: Interview with Kota Ibushi


Wrestling Observer Radio with Dave Meltzer and myself, guest co-host Garrett Gonzales, is back. 

This is the first of two Wrestling Observer Radio shows from Dallas. Dave and I talk about the New Japan press conference to kick off G1. We talk about who wasn't at the press conference. We discuss more of the wrestling news of the day including Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows re-upping with WWE, two-for-one ticket sales to the next WWE PPV and Raw, MLW's first PPV, Brandi Rhodes' video piece, and a new AEW match.
