Getting into joshi recently, I keep being blown away by some of the workers from 1990s AJW I'd never seen before. Who would you say are the best workers you haven't seen much of?
I would mostly say guys who are before my time, like Lou Thesz, or guys outside of my sphere of influence that I learned about later, like Akira Maeda. Maeda comes across as a fascinating wrestler from all the Observer Flashbacks, but I had no exposure to him at the time and he was done by the time I was heavily into tape trading. Ditto for Riki Choshu, a hugely influential worker who was more of a name than a real star by the time I had access to those tapes.
