So as we come to the end of the decade, it’s time to reflect on the events of the past 10 years. Wrestling has been real good this decade, the quality and availability of stuff has been higher than ever, though of course this has still been a fair amount of hot garbage to go along with it. But rather than do a match of the decade list, which in all honesty, I would have real trouble picking in the first place, I wanted to just highlight some events and things that have stuck with me or kept me interested as a fan, whether it be something specific or much more general.

This day also features a Jr. Title Match between Daisuke Harada/Kotaro Suzuki which should be fun and there were also two opening tag matches which I shall be skipping to the straight to the main meat. Lets Go!
