Episode 144/WCW-NJPW Collision in Korea 1995

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

We're back talking the good kind of Korean Collision.  When wrestling is in charge of diplomacy what bad could happen?  When Scott Norton faces Shinya Hashimoto can they really go for 20 minutes?  How many dance performances can Ric Flair stomach?  How powerful is the enziguri?  So many questions, most have answers.

Episode 73/NJPW Super J Cup 1994

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Ed & Neil are back with an informative episode of the show that answers many more questions than the Halloween Havoc episode.  With 14 of the greatest junior heavyweights in the world gathered in one tournament the wrestling discussed is obviously good but that doesn't stop the digressions and the solution to one of the greatest mysteries in music and wrestling history involving Aaron Neville.

Episode 4.5/Showcase on New Japan YouTube

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Ed is back for another Showcase edition of the podcast looking at some matches from the official New Japan Pro Wrestling YouTube channel. In this show Ed finds a new favorite wrestler in Taichi, talks Giant Bernard: Wrecking Ball, complains about Jushin Liger wearing a wig and more. 18 minutes of good (free) times.

If you have any questions, comments or other feedback you can reach us at, or on Twitter @uwspodcast (Now with additional non-plug tweets!).

A quick addition from Ed. New Japan is one of the largest pro wrestling companies in Japan. When I compared the crowd and building from the first match to an indy crowd/building I should have made sure to point out that New Japan is a large company that runs sone smaller buildings such as the one described. Thank you all for listening.
