A 605 Superpodcast Name Drop & a Lost Japan Booking

605 Super Podcast Episode 74

Part 2 of an interview with Tony Myers aired on Brian Last’s 605 Superpodcast where he spoke about his time wrestling in Japan and his relationship with Mr. Pogo.

At around the 3:30:40 mark, Last asks his final question where Myers mentions CAQ’s name as someone who Pogo wanted to bring into his promotion WWS for a gaijin (foreigners) tournament.

It has been said that Pogo enjoyed CAQ because of the “People are Strange” theme song (as Pogo liked the Doors while in America) and being all go in the ring. Unfortunately, Pogo passed away before this could come to fruition.

Disappointment

When I heard about this, I have to say that I lost out on the opportunity to wrestle in Japan for one of the more recognized wrestlers from that country.

It’s more disappointing that Pogo passed away from surgical complications that could have been avoided, but that’s a whole different topic.

I’m just happy to know that I was regarded so highly by a wrestling legend halfway around the world. That is humbling to me.

I hope to get the opportunity to wrestle in Japan at least once before my wrestling career ends. For now, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing and look to open more doors for myself.
