How the biggest wrestling show ever happened in the world's most isolated country

Oh dear, Kim's banging on about wrestling again.

Monday, as always, brings another Kim Justice video to you good folks here at Retronauts. And this week is somewhat different from the usual games related content I make -- no doubt you know that, as it happens, I kinda dig my wrestling too and like to make a video on that from time to time, and after the trainwreck that was Heroes of Wrestling I've got something quite intriguing...the Collision in Korea, a two-day show that took place in 1995, and was attended by over 350,000 people, in Pyongyang, North Korea.

There are many things that make this show interesting -- the wrestling itself aside from a one-off dream match between Ric Flair and Antonio Inoki, isn't a big factor in that. The story of this show is all about strangers in a strange land, a group of big musclebound American and Japanese wrestlers spending five days in the world's most isolated country, and a place that's....well, grim -- particularly at this time, when North Korea was going through one of the worst famines in its history. Oh, and all the government agents hanging around, tapping your phone, monitoring everything you do -- that's kind of a dampener too.

If you're into this weird mix of grappling and political intrigue, then this video may well be for you -- it's certainly been an effort to get it up, so hopefully you enjoy it! It may be the biggest wrestling audience of all-time, but it undoubtedly was not the biggest paid audience, if you know what I mean. Enjoy.
