Q. What is All Japan Pro Wrestling?

The All Japan Pro Wrestling was established in 1972 by a famous wrestler, Giant Baba (Baba Shohei).


In January 1999, when the founder Giant Baba passed away, Misawa Mitsuharu became the CEO, and Kobashi Kenta became a director.


The matches in Toyama were part of the All Japan Pro Wrestling ’99 Summer Action Series.


The following year, in 2000, many leading wrestlers, including Mitsuharu Misawa and Kenta Kobashi, left All Japan Pro Wrestling to found a new professional wrestling organization, Noah.
