StarBuck vs. Tenryu at SMASH.20

Posted: July 18, 2011 in Professional Wrestling

In absolutely one of the biggest match-ups in my career to date, I will be facing Japanese living puroresu legend Genichiro Tenryu at SMASH.20 on August 11 in the second round of the SMASH Championship Title Tournament at Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall.

Tenryu is without question the most esteemed opponent that I have ever been billed against.  His career stemming back to 1976 is one that very few mortal men could hope to equal, much less surpass.

Genichiro Tenryu has been an All-Japan Triple Crown Champion three times, an NWA World Six-man Tag Team Champion with The Road Warriors and an IWGP Heavyweight Champion in addition to numerous other titles that he has held over his storied career.

Tenryu has also been a promoter in the wrestling industry, and my old friends Lance Storm and Chris Jericho have both wrestled extensively for Tenryu’s early 1990’s company WAR.

To say that I am anticipating this match against Tenryu would be the understatement of the decade: I am gearing up for this showdown like no other in the past, and I will do my best to make a big impression on August 11 when the bell sounds in Tokyo.
