Storyline

Takashi used to wrestle and take himself seriously, but that he was a comic figure is now apparent to all including himself with his mask and get-up since he officially wrestles as a joke. He has not told his son what he does for a living, but the boy finds out and lies to his school-mate about his father's line of work. Written by aghaemi

This movie is absolutely amazing and it also goes to show why I'm such a big fan of New Japan Pro Wrestling.
