Vince McMahon vs. Antonio Inoki Coming Soon?
From Strong Style Spirit:
I would love to see that. I can see the ads now...
The latest edition of Naigai Times claims to have a quote from Antonio Inoki that says Vince McMahon wants to wrestle him. According to him, Vince talked to Simon while he was in America about possibly setting the match up some time.
Seriously, that would be awesome. It would also be Inoki's first match since 1998. Vince would win round one in the WWE, probably by cheating. Inoki would take round two, but would be in some tag match or something. Round three would take place in New Japan, where Vince would promptly get his ass handed to him. There is "no chance in hell" (pun intended) that McMahon would ever win a match in New Japan. It would be like if John Cena beat Tommy Dreamer in an ECW ring. Fans would riot.
Inoki vs. McMahon I. Live on Pay-Per-View.
Oh... one more thing. Antonio Inoki, just like Vince McMahon, is completely, 100% insane. Rumor has it that he sold New Japan to the Yuke's toy and game company in other to finance, amongs, the construction of his own shrine. Yes, that's right. He wants people to worship him as a god. Well, at least Shawn Michaels would have a tag team partner at "Backlash..."
Inoki's always saying crazy things.
Besides, US wrestling fans are completely ignorant to the wrestling world outside of Mondays and Fridays. Antonio Inoki wouldn't ring at all with them.
If they built Inoki up and had promos and all that crap a few months prior to the match it would work and I would love to see it happen.
