I am in the process of reading the new book by Road Warrior Animal (Joe Laurinitas) about the "Life and Times of the Road Warriors"
He details all of his career along with stories of his long friendships with Rick Rude, Barry Darsow (Krusher Kruschev), Nikita Koloff (Scott Simpson), Scott Norton and Nord the Barbarian.
One of the more interesting things is the details of some of the many thousand matches they have had over the years including their first trip to Japan when they became Gods of Wrestling to the fans.
Their first match there was against the big rugged team of Animal Hamaguichi and Killer Khan. All 4 men loved to work stiff and made it look real and rough.
Here is there first match in Japan from March of 1985
