From a production standpoint, wwe has never been better. From a substance standpoint, it’s never been worse. I had to turn this shit off. Sizzle, no steak.
also the current wwe world title looks so terrible. they should have stayed with just the big gold belt. nothing will ever look more iconic than it, regardless of the fact that it’s from nwa.
The Pyongyang International Pro-Wrestling Games closed after two days of competition. The event brought together wrestlers from Japan, China, Brazil, France, and the United States. It was watched live by over 30,000 Pyongyangites.
This event was promoted by Inoki Genome Federation, a minor Japanese wrestling organization headed by hall-of-famer Antonio Inoki. Inoki also arranged the last pro wrestling show held in North Korea, a 1995 co-promotion between New Japan Pro Wrestling and US-based World Championship Wrestling.
Inoki’s willingness to engage the North Korean government is controversial in Japan, but he strongly believes in maintaining relations between the two countries. Rikidōzan, the most legendary pro wrestler in Japan, was born in what is now North Korea, and Inoki argues that this connection makes wrestling a vital tool for diplomacy.
