Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. This week, it's time to really get going with the first in-depth conversation of the season. The subject is AJ Styles, whose WWE success these past 4 1/2 years opened the door to potentially changing part of the context of The WrestleMania Era premise. I remember, years ago, telling a fellow wrestling columnist that New Japan did not deserve to be discussed alongside WWE and NWA/WCW when determining all-time rankings of greatest wrestlers. I no longer necessarily feel that way. If we accept NJPW into the fold, bringing its championships, major shows, classic matches, etc. with it, then given how much success Styles had in the promotion that made him a commodity, do we also accept TNA/Impact and its history?
Rich Latta, formerly of WrestlingHeadlines.com and always of Social Suplex and One Nation Radio, joins me to determine the answers to those questions, as well as to help determine the WrestleMania Era ranking for AJ Styles. Is he a Top 30 star?--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
