WCW/NJPW Rumble in the Rising Sun 1991

Cewsh: 20 years ago, the world was a very different place. People listened to cassette tapes and watched VHS videos of movies like Ghost and Red Dawn, and other Patrick Swayze movies that are lost treasures today. The wrestling world was just as different, with WCW just coming into its own and pulling itself away from the memory of the NWA little by little. Part of that, was a partnership with NJPW that they held in good standing for nearly a decade after this.

This is the fruit of that partnership, and a juicy fruit it is.

 
Much like Vice. WOOP WOOP WOOP!

World Championship Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling Proudly Present...

WCW/NJPW Rumble In The Rising Sun 1991


Welcome, welcome, cats and kittens to yet another Swatch Watch sponsored edition of Cewsh Reviews. This week we have a special treat for you all, and while we always say that, this time we truly have tapped into to something very different for us. That’s right, we’re hopping into our wrestling time machine, setting the dial to 1991, and slapping a “Japan or bust” bumper sticker on that bad boy, as this week we tackle the WCW/NJPW Supershow from 1991 entitled “Rumble In The Rising Sun”. The best of New Japan gets pitted up against the best of WCW in one of the very first international supershows, and we are beaming with pride to cover this epic and important show with all of you.

Will the famous Cewsh Reviews wit manage to avoid making nothing but 90s jokes from here on out? Or will we have to cut…it…out? You’ll just have to keep reading to find out, as we pass our judgmental lens over yet another piece of wrestling history. We're also going to make a concerted effort this time out to use pictures and gifs to bring the past to life for you. To give you some idea of what we see, and to share the experience with us. We'll see how it goes. Come on along for the ride.

So without any further ado, let’s do a motherfucking review!
