So I was going through some old tapes and found one I had bought awhile back that was full of Japanese Garbage wrestling (I wanna say it was IWA or Big Japan). It had a lot of crazy shit like matches with cactuses (not Jack), and barbed wire. There was one with a box full of scorpions and another with a fish tank full of pirahnas.
How much of this stuff is "real"? The pirahna looked pretty damn real to me and it was there was only like 5 inches of water in the tank.
One of the most tried and true methods of building up someone into a huge star is the undefeated streak method. While it doesn't always work (see Tatanka), in recent times we have seen it have two major triumphs in Goldberg and Lesnar.
