It is a rarity that I find two stars from New Japan celebrating their birthdays on the same day, but low and behold it had to happen once. As always wrestling gives us both great memories and memories we try and forget, but with the amount of moments worth remembering that have happened we are bound to forget some. The same could be said about some talent that were very much underrated during their career or never at the top of a company during a run this unfortunately makes it easier for fans to forget certain talent. These two are very different talent and had two very different careers while they worked in this great business. Sometimes we encounter those that deserve to be remembered and acknowledged. I would like to wish a very big Happy Birthday to all who are celebrating their special day today and especially to the one featured below.
Nerd Note: Hiroyoshi Tenzan is one of only a handful of wrestlers to have held the NWA World Tag Team & IWGP Tag Team Titles. Tenzan actually would win both sets of tag titles with the same partner both times and in many cases is considered a legend of New Japan.
