The Puro Pourri Podcast Episode 5 – NJPW vs. UWFI (II): Fit to Shoot

After a difficult gestation involving lost audio, a re-recording and one of the presenters’ dogs shitting everywhere mid-episode, George, Daniel and David are back with another look at the famous NJPW vs. UWFI feud from 1995-1996. Continuing their look at the October 1995 Tokyo Dome show, the hosts bemoan booking, laugh themselves into a stupor at one of the most hilariously one-sided squash matches of all time, reveal which British supermarket has a better opinion on Wrestle Kingdom 11 than other leading brands, and fantasy book Jushin Liger against one of the UK’s leading Brexiteers. All this and more on the Puro Pourri Podcast!

George Thompson, known to his friends as Statto, is one-third of the team that makes up The Puro Pourri Podcast. Following an initial grappling obsession, which ran between 2001 and 2005, he spent large amounts of his time at university distracting himself from work with wrestling, and a smaller number of hours coming up with excuses to discuss the sport in an academic context. He is currently halfway through a novel set in the world of Japanese wrestling after the Second World War, entitled "The Rise and Fall of Rikidōzan", and hopes to finish it sometime in 2017. His man-crush on Katsuyori Shibata continues unabated.
