My Journey Through NJPW’s Golden Age – Part 1: Jetpack Pushes & New Stars

Hello everyone and welcome to My Journey Through NJPW’s Golden Age! To me, this “Golden Age” I’m speaking of starts with the meteoric rise of Kazuchika Okada (starting at this match) and stretches to (at the time of writing this) the present. Currently, my masterlist of matches to review is here, so check it out and suggest important matches I missed. I will be adding modern matches periodically, and hopefully I can eventually make it to the present.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Starrcade 1993 review! I’m quite excited for the main event of this show; as for the rest of the card, not so much. There are some undercard matches with some potential, but most good or great workers are saddled with inferior wrestlers. Regardless, I have hope! If last year’s show can be good with the Lethal Lottery and Battlebowl, then this show can be good too. Will it? Lets find out.
