Another great episode! These are a blast to listen to and a change to get  familiar with this style of wrestling.

Sadly, I can't seem to find the BattlArts match in the playlist for episode 6? Please help, I really want to see this.

FNF #007: PWFG 7/26/91 Live Watch

***This episode is different***
 
Brennan had to come back up to Portland for like 10 minutes of work, so he stayed with Andy again and the two hung out and watched a PWFG show together because they love Yoshiaki Fujiwara, Minoru Suzuki, Naoki Sano and Masakatsu Funaki. The show they watched was the third PWFG show, from 7/26/91 and available on Youtube!
 
This episode will NOT be an enjoyable listen unless you are watching the show along with us, so you should grab some beers and do that. Hell it might not be an enjoyable listen even if you DO watch with us, but try it out. Be a FRIEND.

 

 
Matches:
7/26/91 PWFG "All for One and One for All" - featuring a sickkkkkkk Sano/Suzuki match.

Thanx for another great listen! This show is highly recommended. I liked the awards section and that Dick Togo vs Daisuke Sasaki match is a must see IMO. Such a great X-Mas present.

Thank YOU for your support! Agree, Togo/Sasaki has largely flown under the radar but rules.
