TOKYO, JAPAN - FEBRUARY 26: Student wrestlers fight in the ring during the Student Pro-Wrestling Summit on February 26, 2015 in Tokyo, Japan. Members of college pro-wrestling clubs from all across Japan gathered to compete in their final graduation fight night held at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. Japanese universities do not offer professional wrestling as a sport, forcing interested students from all across japan to form college pro-wrestling clubs. The students are self-taught and rely heavily on YouTube videos to learn moves and techniques. Pro-wrestling became popular in Japan in the 1970's as American pro-wrestling peaked.

Once in awhile, something comes across your feed that is just so beautiful and so perfect that you have to share it with the world.


This clip popped up in my Twitter feed yesterday, and the description read (after translation): “New Japan Pro-Wrestling wrestlers who dismantle the house with their own bodies without using tools. Shinya Hashimoto, Jushin Liger, Akira Nogami, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Koji Kanemoto, Satoshi Kojima.” I have no idea who any of these wrestlers are or what era the clip is from (maybe late ’80s? ’90s?) but damn, it delivers.


There’s something cathartic about watching a bunch of pro wrestlers just going house on a house. And what’s more, they’re having fun. I did a little digging and found the full clip, which you can watch below. Tanoshi!
