Show Notes

The Dark Menace himself joins us for this special Filsinger Games episode of KoPW! I loved getting the chance to interview Tom Filsinger, creator of Champions of the Galaxy, as we take a stroll down memory lane to chat about the "Best of" set released to celebrate 50 game editions of CotG! Todd Joerchel rides shotgun and we wrap the show up with coverage of the new George Tragos - Lou Thesz Hall of Fame set headlined by Jack Brisco. There's also some teasers, Best of the Indy's 2020: Tag Team edition, and an announcement for the future. NOTE: We suffered a couple of small technical difficulties during the recording of this episode. All efforts have been made to retain as much of the original conversation as possible while also providing the most seamless listening experience possible.

King's Road Chapter II - The New Generation Emerges

The Four Pillars of Wrestling also make their first appearances in our story and we chart Mitsuharu Misawa’s life up until May of 1990.

In addition to the context and background information discussed, we also take a look at the following four matches: * Tenryu vs Tsuruta 10/11/89 - Triple Crown III * Tenryu vs Tsuruta 4/19/90 - Final Outing * Tiger Mask II & Toshiaki Kawada vs Fuyuki & Yatsu 5/14/90 - The Mask Comes Off * Misawa, Kobashi, & Taue vs. Jumbo, Kabuki, & Fuchi 5/26/90 - New Generation Emerges Missing Pieces - Genichiro Tenryu left AJPW after his defeat in April of 1990 at the hands of Jumbo Tsuruta to be the spokesmodel for Megane Super - an eyeglass maker in Japan. However, the company seemed to have a dual motive in hiring Tenryu as they would launch a wrestling company shortly thereafter - Super World of Sports. The SWS was founded with the motto “Straight and Strong”. Megane threw a ton of money around to recruit wrestlers - mostly from All Japan - in an attempt to form a legitimate threat to the other big two ...
