So you want to get into the magic that is NJPW, the second biggest wrestling promotion in the world, but are unsure where to begin, or what you should know before jumping in, or where to jump in, or whether you’ll get it and now you just don’t— hey, relax, buddy, I’m here for you.
I’ve got good news: if you like wrestling, you’ll like NJPW. It’s really that simple. The only thing you need to know is that they have 20-second count-outs. That is it. That is literally the only thing you truly need to know, going in.
Ready to get started? Good. Because now you’re going to watch this match. It’s a good match, just sit back and enjoy it. I’ll see you on the other side of the jump.
All of this is true and good, but this, THIS! I AM SCARED ALL THE TIME.
