All Japan 10/31 results

All Japan Pro Wrestling ran it's Keiji Mutoh 20th Anniversary show last night at the Sumo Hall with a very good live attendance number. Eventhough the show was said to be mostly passable in terms of workrate, I'll still be looking to pick up a tape of this show when it becomes availble.

News out of the show is that Osamu Nishimura will continue his participation with AJPW and even plans to bring in his teacher Dory Funk Jr. to finish his ages old feud with Abdullah The Butcher.
Love Machine X was also rumoured to be Jim Steele.
The possibilities of a Kawada/Tenzan Triple Crown match now look good since Kawada is going into their match as the reigning champion.

Now we wait to see how NJPW's Masahiro Chono 20th Anniversary show goes, since they are trying to bank in with a bigger venue.
