AJPW Raising an Army review (10.9.17)

AJPW Raising an Army   October 9 2017   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Korakuen Hall. This is the big Suwama title shot show.

AJPW Champion Carnival Final review (4.30.17)

AJPW Champion Carnival Final   April 30 2017   We’re in Fukuoka, Japan at the Hakata Star Lanes.

AJPW Champion Carnival 2017 Day 7 review (4.25.17)

AJPW Champion Carnival 2017 Day 7   April 25 2017   I know, I know. Whatever the fuck happened to days 2-6?
