AJ 70's and 80's

I have been watching some tapes of AJ in the 70's and 80's I have noticed that the formula seemed to be Geijin vs Japanese
for their major fued/storylines IE; Hansen vs Jumbo or a variety
of tour guests like Harley Race to challenge Giant Baba. when did
AJ move into doing Japanese vs Japanese IE; Misawa vs Kawada
for their main storylines?

Stan Hansen's best matchs in AJ/NJ

i am a big Stan Hansen mark and wanted to know which matchs in
both his NJ/AJ career were his best?

Also I have heard that his
"Western Lariat" was a really stiff move, which is why he cracked Bruno's neck with it. and why did he use it left armed instead of right? most wrestlers use a right handed clothline.

Korean Titles

My question is this:

On Hisa's title page, there's a South Korea section, and I'm just curious to the origins of Korean puroresu, and how far it got. I'm assuming that Kintaro Ohki promoted cards there (hence his Korean group being on the NWA membership roster at one time); did he trai wrestlers? And what happened to Korean puroresu when Ohki retired? Did it just die out?

I know this site deals with puroresu, Japanese ...

Question about New Japan Dojo in the Showa Days

Another thread on this forum mentioned how Gran Hamada and Mr. Pogo were the first graduates of New Japan's dojo. My question is, who exactly worked as trainers for New Japan in this period? Did some trainers jump ship from the JWA along with Inoki, Fujinami and Kido?

Favorite All Japan Tag Teams

I've always thought that the tag team division in All Japan in the mid to late 80s was one of the best ever, up there with JCP around the same era. My favorite team was Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen. What are yours?
