Joshi Spotlight- Wrestlemarinepiad ’92

WRESTLEMARINEPIAD ’92:
(25.04.1992)

And we’re back to another Wrestlemarinepiad! Unfortunately, nobody can seem to find 1991’s show, but it looks pretty good. Bull Nakano fought Monster Ripper (Rhonda Sing/Bertha Faye) in the main event after teaming up against Aja Kong & Bison Kimura in a Steel Cage match, Kyoko Inoue & Toshiyo Yamada took on Akira Hokuto & Manami Toyota, and more. I’ll see if that ever turns up.

“TL;DR- Why Should I Watch It?”- This show features the Toyota/Inoue match that Dave Meltzer rated “*****+++”, which may in fact be the first time he broke the ***** scale- not a New Japan or NXT bout. And IT’S NOT BULLSHIT! The rest of the worked matches are at least good.

Joshi Spotlight- THAT Hair vs. Hair Match

TOYOTA vs. YAMADA- Hair vs. Hair

So this is the famous match which Dave Meltzer apparently describes to this day as the greatest match he’s ever seen live. A bout where merely his description of what happened had people on the Blog welling up with tears. So how could I NOT do an article focusing on it?

Short Version: A spectacular match with an even MORE flawless angle after it. A must-watch, even for non-puro/joshi fans.
