About BushidoRX

I have been following Japanese Pro Wrestling for well over 15 years and I have also been doing some form of covering it news/results wise for over 10 years now as well. I got my start in promotions like AJPW, NJPW, FMW and Michinoku. Throughout the years I have followed All Japan more closely than the others, but I do my best to keep people informed with what is happening all throughout sport in Japan. If it does not appear on the news feed I either do not follow it closely enough to relate the information or it just not my go to promotion in general. Follow Puroresu Spirit, which is my personal site, as I cover what I find newsworthy and as I do my best to keep you all informed with what is happening in the land of the rising sun.
