#VaderWeek: Essential Viewing

Big Van Vader vs. Antonio Inoki

A very green (Big Van) Vader arrives in All Japan Pro Wrestler, and goes one-on-one with God himself, Antonio Inoki. Vader crushes Inoki, continues the assault after the match, and pretty much murders a bunch of young boys. The result? A near-riot, and a huge spike in ticket sales.

Today, in the US, the closest we get to a debut like this is Tensai. Think about that.
