Over in the land of the Rising son the action was hot and heavy as AJPW (All Japan Pro Wrestling) put on a couple local shows. For my monies worth these shows blow away anything that the WWE or TNA can put on. It is a shame we don't cover promotions like these more often in the states. Here is a look at the results for their shows on 1/8/14 and 1/10/14.
