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: Within a little over a year All Japan's history changed forever with two icons of the promotion passing away. On January 31, 1999 the founder of All Japan Pro-Wrestling Giant Baba passed away and then on May 13, 2000 All Japan Pro-Wrestling Icon Jumbo Tsuruta passed away sticking another nail in the recovery of AJPW after the departure of Mitsharu Misawa the year before.
