I have been watching puroresu for about 3 years now. I started off watching NJPW and then moved on to NOAH. After a few months of watching NOAH I discovered all of the promotions I know of today such as DDT, BJW, AJPW, Dragon Gate all via the site. Although I did know of some of the company names I didn't know much. NOAH is my favourite promotion, with Naomichi Marufuji being my favourite wrestler from Japan anyway. I credit Naomichi Marufuji vs Takashi Sugiura in 2014 for the GHC Heavyweight Championship that really started my love for NOAH, that match was awesome. The companies I watch are NOAH, DDT & then I also check out BJW, AJPW & occasionally other matches from different promotions. I hope to keep growing my knowledge and following puroresu for years
