In honor of Jushin Thunder Liger’s retirement, Chris tells the full story of Super Liger! He chronicles the character’s origin, the costume design, and seeing the mask for the first time. And he hosts a watch-along of Super Liger’s one and only match against Koji Kanemoto at the Tokyo Dome in January of 1997.  He remembers the crowd reaction (or lack thereof), the locker room reaction post-match, and even shares a few of the critical reviews. Chris also talks about the fallout from the match, and the one thing that saved his opportunity to do more work for New Japan in the future.
