Patrick Oliva ,

Great Perspective on NJPW

The Lion Marks has been a great listen and offers a different take on NJPW. Rather than just discuss matches they delve into deeper topics such as the culture.

Thehellezell ,

Great perspectives and resource on NJPW

My favorite NJPW podcast!

CincyJBoss ,

Great show

Wanted to write a quick review of the show. Great insights on all things NJPW, from an insiders point of view meaning from someone who speaks the language and can provide cultural insight that other shows don’t cover. The interactions of the two hosts are enjoyable and the travel information that they provide for those going to Japan is excellent.
