Welcome to the wild and wonderful world of National Puroresu Day! Get ready to dive into the outrageous realm of the world's most intense wrestling style, as we explore the fascinating history and electrifying action that has captivated fans for decades.
It's national puroresu day on the 26th July.
Puroresu, which translates to 'professional wrestling' in Japanese, originated in the Land of the Rising Sun in the early 20th century. Drawing inspiration from traditional Japanese martial arts and American professional wrestling, puroresu developed its unique style that combines athleticism, storytelling, and over-the-top theatrics.
Since its inception, puroresu has produced a lineage of legendary wrestlers who have become household names, both in Japan and around the world. Iconic figures such as Antonio Inoki, The Great Muta, and Jushin Thunder Liger have left an indelible mark on the sport, captivating audiences with their daredevil moves and larger-than-life personas.
Puroresu is known for its fast-paced and high-flying action, with wrestlers incorporating acrobatic maneuvers like moonsaults, dropkicks, and powerbombs into their repertoire. The matches often feature intricate plots and dramatic storylines, blurring the lines between sporting competition and live theater.
While puroresu is deeply rooted in Japanese culture, its popularity has spread far beyond the borders of Japan. Wrestling promotions such as New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) and All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW) have gained a dedicated international fanbase, staging epic showdowns that attract wrestling enthusiasts from all corners of the globe.
