Burning Spirits #42: All Japan Pro-Wrestling 2017 SUMMER EXPLOSION ~ AJPW 45th Anniversary Show

Were back from beyond this week on Burning Spirits, as we review the big AJPW 45th anniversary show from Sumo Hall.

We break down every single match, including a monstrous main event. We share our thoughts and feelings on some potentially controversial booking decisions throughout the show and look forward into the fall for All Japan and Shuji Ishikawa. We then hop over to Big Japan to briefly talk about the two title matches from the Death Mania V show, including a very hyped death match! Listen to all of us give our thoughts on this match, and listen as Brennan shares a revelation so shocking it has sent the podcast into an existential crisis.

Recommended Matches:

Yuma Aoyagi vs Taichi
KAI/Naoya Nomura vs Strong BJ
Kento Miyahara vs Shuji Ishikawa
Hideki Suzuki vs Daichi Hashimoto (BJW 8/19)
Masaya Takahashi vs Masashi Takeda (BJW 8/19)

Burning Spirits #43: DDT CAMPSITE WRESTLING LIVE WATCH

What better way to do a live watch of DDTs recent Campsite Wrestling match than with two people who have never really watched wrestling before? No better way, thats what!

With Kevin down for the count this week, Drew is joined by his lovely wife Isabelle and Brennan is joined by his lovely fiancee Zoraya for a bewildering introduction to DDT via Campsite Wrestling! Listen for the confused silence, the nervous laughter, hilarious reactions, and genuine confusion as these two wonderful women attempt to navigate the insanity they see unfolding before them. I will say this, this episode rewards the listener for listening through to the end, so dont give up!

I don't normally listen to this, but some of the matches intrigued me.

Extra interesting when it's a relative novice to 80s American wrestling. Good stuff.

Cool thanks for checking it out! We usually just stick to modern non-NJPW Japanese promotions but we branches out this episode, especially because Brennan hadnt seen the Flair/Steamboat series.
