Best Japanese Wrestlers Playlist


I got a request from Twitter user @PhilAustin (via my @wweplaylist account) for this playlist of the best of Japanese wrestlers. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Japanese style of wrestler when I got the request but I was curious.

After doing my research and going through some of the matches below, I can see myself starting to warm up to these wrestlers from the land of the rising sun… there is some serious crowd heat coming from matches that I would have easily skipped over before (i.e. the crowd going bonkers for The Jumping Bomb Angels winning the WWF Women’s Tag Team Championship… which yes, was a thing that actually existed). Anyways, in no particular order… enjoy!
