If I wasn't sure before, then I sure as hell am now.
Inoki is love.
First he used pro wrestling to promote world peace. Now his promotion, the Inoki Genome Federation, has announced Minowaman vs Necro Butcher for its February 22nd show. A popular Japanese MMA fighter against a well-read crazy brawler pro wrestler who stole his scenes in The Wrestler. In a regular worked wrestling match. This is way cooler than forcing pro wrestlers into MMA fights where they'll get their asses kicked and I'm sure that it will be at least a million star match.
