I've been given nothing but love from the wieners (well, those who replied anyway) for my review of my first ever puroresu experience. I appreciate all the comments and recommendations. I'm just here to tell you, that since then, I can't get enough, and now it's official:
AJW Big Egg Universe (Tokyo Dome, 11/20/94)
My next viewing. Many considered it one of the biggest joshi shows of all time. And of course, I wanted to see Madusa getting schooled by Hall of Famer Bull Nakano. There's ten hours of this stuff according to the description. That's bliss to watch, but hell to recap, so I might not be able to. I will give a general opinion of the whole thing for you. I'll give you a heads up when I get down to it.
This is during the peak of teh AJW promotion, so there should be good stuff on it.
That's a show I've not seen personally, but would again say to be on the look out for Wrestlemarinpiad or Dreamslam I. Not to mention the famous toyota/yamada hair match, which Meltzer said was the most emotional crowd he'd ever seen.
