My views on Pro Wrestling from the East and West

Akira Taue is the NEW GHC Heavyweight champion, ending Takeshi Rikioh's 7+ month reign as champion! I haven't been this happy with a puroresu match result in a LONG time! I almost had a tear in my eye when I read Taue won the title! Even if he does lose the title in January or March, it's still good that they gave the old dog his due! Taue is certainly one of those guys who DESERVES a run with a major title and I commend Misawa for giving it to him.
