I'm familiar with puroresu, lucha libre, shootfighting, hardcore, Southern beatdown, Memphis fiasco, Bill Watts' top rope moves are bad, and WWE (ugh!) booking styles. What is exactly King's Road?

I presume you're talking about All Japan (correct me if I'm wrong). If so, here are the trademarks of the promotion (and I mean classic AJPW, not current):

1. super stiff work
2. clean pinfall finishes
3. main event wrestlers with multiple finishers
4. long matches (40+ minutes for title matches or 6-mans)
5. a tier of main eventers, who are mostly equal
6. a match starts slow and builds to many near falls

There are film societies and cinemas galore for the serious non-film student.” – Robert Steele, “Film Scholars at the New York Film Festival,” FILM COMMENT 2, Fall 1964, p. 41, as quoted in It’s Only a Movie, by Raymond J.

Ekedolphin, thanks for the history lesson. I knew about the scissors thing, but not the squeegee. (One of my favorite parts of WMXIII is the fan with the big pair of scissors with "Sid" written on one blade).
