My Journey Through 1990s AJPW – Part 1: The Beginning

Hello everyone and welcome to my return to 1990s AJPW! I have decided to change the format of this review series a bit in comparison to the prologue. Each post will only have one or at most two matches being reviewed, and instead of the long form reviews I did in the Prologue, I will just be doing normal reviews. Also, the prologue is done and is unlisted. I might journey through 1980s All Japan at some point, but not now. Anyway, on to the review!
