Since the beginning of the rise of Puroresu many Western wrestlers came to compete against their Japanese counterparts. A few brought the styles they learned in the East back home. A few Japanese stars made their way West and inspired even more westerners to travel to Japan. In the mid-nineties, a small group of young journeymen wrestlers began to make a name for themselves in the larger American promotions.

I have notebooks filled with notes and have started essay’s on whatever was happening in the news at the time. None of it feels like it means anything. The internet has become so filled with people voicing their opinion about everything that it felt pointless to add to the cacophony. This past year for me has been so filled with varied emotions and realizations that I could not possibly try to recap them all.
