He was scheduled to take on a local talent who's a second generation wrestler here, goes by the name "Simply the Best" Ryan Edmonds. Originally the promoter had penciled in Chyna to face him, but that fell through. Mark was in the area so he contacted him. About the time Ryan updated his status promoting the match for Saturday is when someone posted that Rob Feinstein has announced he'd been a severe car accident. From those notes... that is horrendous. I hope he recovers because those are some very extensive injuries.
That's a good observation. Hogan did seem work differently in Japan, but I think it was due to a few factors. 1) Japanese style vs "WWF" style 2) Expectations of the fans in Japan are higher for actual wrestling and mat work 3)
