The Wrstling Podcast #84 - Go Shiozaki Interview

May 30, 2022

Interview Season is back and CybrFight Fstival 2022 has officially begun!

We kick things off with something of a ‘pinch me’ moment for The Wrstling Podcast, as the boys welcome long-time favourite and current GHC Heavyweight Champion Go Shiozaki to the podcast!

Go walks us through his training, the differing philosophies of Yoshinari Ogawa and Harley Race, preparation for Satoshi Kojima and that stare down with Kazuyuki Fujita. 

Alongside all the usual silliness, this one is filled with unexpected insight into one of wrestling’s living legends – He is NOAH!
