Here goes my weekly contribution to the UG: Gomi Takanori: "Scary" by the Mad Capsule Markets. Sakurai Mach Hayato: I think it's "Fujimi no Erekiman" by the High-Lows.

You are probably right. The sound system in Ariake is terrible. Mach may have walked out to "Tokyo Zombie" by the Blue Hearts instead. This reminds me of an old superstition among the Japanese pro wrestlers that one should never change one's theme song. Hence Sakuraba is still stuck with the same ultra-campy faux-techno bit from what may be the worst film in history (caveat: I have not watched the Mirko movie yet). Way back before he went broke like MC Hammer, Komuro Tetsuya even went through the trouble of producing a special remix of the song for Sakuraba, but Saku was reportedly reluctant to use the new track, even though it was only a remix, citing the superstition above. Good times!

Hamu - you HAVE TO watch the Mirko movie. It's one for the ages. A true experience.

Hamu, I don't think so. Jumbo Tsuruta changed his opening song from Rolling Dreamer to J in the 1980s. Kawada also changed to Holy War in 1992. You should count the number of opening songs Shinjiro Ohtani and Masahiro Chono have.

I assume that the taboo on song-switching is not universally recognized, but I must confess that I am not that much of an expert on pro wrestling history. At any rate, Sakuraba mentioned it somewhere, perhaps in the "Sakubon" if I recall correctly. Silk, according to the wif, all six copies of the Mirko movie at the local Tsutaya were rented out. Astounding.
