During an interview with NJPW, YOSHI-HASHI spoke on what made him become a fan of professional wrestling. Here’s what he had to say:
It was the big NJPW vs UWFI Tokyo Dome card, when they ran a prime time special. Nobuhiko Takada vs Keiji Muto in the main event. … So that made me go ‘oh, hey, wrestling’s on TV!’ and then I saw a caption advertising the regular show late at night. … I begged my parents to buy a VCR so I could tape it every week. … Right. Like Muto was the top guy, but I didn’t know his name when I was watching before. He was just the dude in orange pants to me when I was a first grader. Masahiro Chono was ‘that guy who grunts weird’. (laughs)
