He's actually a bit of a regular on WWE's summer house show tours in Japan. Beat Hideo Itami and lost to Finn Balor this year, last year he lost to Nakamura and lost a triple threat title match with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, and in 2015 he lost to Finn Balor and then beat Neville (that one was on the Network special Beast In The East).

Beast In The East was such a fun show!

Wrestle Kingdom 12 has such a great card

Not a particularly huge fan, but have been watching a few documentaries recently (Beyond the Mat a particular favourite)

Anyway I spotted that they have put the 1992 Royal Rumble on YouTube for free & it's some craic. Although by 1992 I would probably have grown out of it by then, this is what I remember WWF wrestling being like when I was a kid, really silly, over the top characters & lots of fun.

Plus I actually recognise some of the characters involved because of the arcade games. :D

A real guilty pleasure...treat yourself. https://youtu.be/-XPi2RKYPX0

"The biz" can be quite interesting even for none fans.
Some podcasts can be an interesting take on it all, especially if they get into some of the stories about what they got up to.
Its a shame Piper died when he did as he got some fun stories, anything Andre the giant was usually funny.

Some recent stuff ive been reading about is a lot of the newer gen wrestlers snubbing Hogan back stage due to his racist comments and generally taking show time for the same boring promos
