Pacific Rim: 30th anniversary of the Wrestling Summit

On April 13, 1990, the WWF, New Japan, and All Japan Pro Wrestling came together at the Tokyo Dome for an interpromotional card called the Wrestling Summit. It featured Hulk Hogan vs. Stan Hansen, Genichiro Tenryu vs. Randy Savage, and Bret Hart vs. Tiger Mask (Mitsuharu Misawa) in a matchup of future legends.

My co-host Fumi Saito not only covered the show, but also knew a lot of people involved. He talks about what he knew at the time, what he didn't know, and why. In addition to the card, he tells a fascinating story about attending the official party the night before the show. He talks about the interactions of superstars and promoters, and we also discuss fan reactions to seeing wrestlers like Ted DiBiase, Jimmy Snuka, and Rick Martel in their new WWE personas.
