It was his birthday yesterday. I met him years ago, at a Vancouver All Star Wrestling event... then a couple of years after that I moved to Japan and met him again, and he remembered me from Vancouver. We've been drinking buddies for eight years now. He's a great guy, a great wrestler (in my opinion, one of the absolute best veteran indie wrestlers in the world) and a true friend. Hopefully I'll have some Kuuga-related drinking and wrestling stories to tell in the new year. Here are a few pictures from the past 8 years: This is the bar where about 40 of Kuuga's friends had our year-end party. It was three hours of all you can eat Chinese food, and all-you-can-drink. Good times. This is from the karaoke party in late October. I am pleased to be one of the group of people around whom Kuuga feels comfortable removing his mask. We were drinking buddies for seven years before I saw his face. Eating kushikatsu in Osaka's exotic Shinsekai area, shortly after my birthday. At the rooftop BBQ in Namba Parks this summer I'll post more later.
This was pretty neat. KENTA was still working under the Kenta Kobayashi. Coogar and Takeru are Japanese indy guys who've been around forever and have worked for all of the bigger Japanese indies at one point or another. The story is pretty simple with the bigger company guys coming in from NOAH to take on the best local Jr.'s available. The locals bring the fight to the outsiders, but its not enough. I thought everyone did well here and worked hard. I'm so accustomed of seeing Kenta work so a more ground based game that its weird seeing him pop so many rana's here. Marufuji was the same here as he's always been. Fun stuff. ***
