Complete and Accurate Shinya Hashimoto



This one is long overdue. I remember the first Hashimoto match I saw, outside of wrestling magazines I knew very little about Japanese wrestling. My one chance to see them would be when they would show up in WCW, I remember watching the 1992 Bash and seeing Hashimoto come out swagger on 10, and kick the every living shit out of Jimmy Jam Garvin. Totally opened up my head, and watching him kill three guys in a tiny Pennsylvania rec center is still one of my favorite live experiences ever and I still have the signed bandanna I caught. Still I think there are a bunch of Hashimoto matches I either haven't seen or haven't watched in years and I am looking forward to digging in. Tomk and Eric will be on a bunch of these (Eric is all in going forward) and as always matches are ranked SKIPPABLE, FUN, GREAT, EPIC.

Curious to see what your input is on his match against Gary Goodridge from INOKI BOM-BA-YE. I thought it was pretty great despite Goodridge's little experience in pro-wrestling. Hashimoto's performance is masterful however.
