Talk Is Jericho: Sudden Impact Rocks Japan – October 1991

Talk Is Jericho: Sudden Impact Rocks Japan – October 1991

Sudden Impact made their tag team debut in Japan in October of 1991. It was Lance Storm and Chris Jericho at Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling, aka FMW. The duo were barely a year into their wrestling careers when this tour opportunity arose, and they recount their nearly three-week trip overseas. They remember how they got the chance to travel to Japan, what it was like boarding the plane with no visa or actual contact information for anyone at FMW. They share stories about FMW promoter Onita, his right-hand man, Goto, and their fellow Gaijin wrestlers on the show, including Mark Starr, Horace Boulder (Hulk Hogan’s nephew), and Mike Awesome. They share some of the ribs pulled on this trip, the story about their $600 drinking bar adventure, and they break down each one of their Japanese matches.
