Misawa Dick Togo Santo Tri-State OuterContinental WWKD Champions #121-130

Mason Dixon no more! JJZ is here to take us through our first recap since rebranding the MDTSOCWWKD Championship. If Dolly Parton can take the Dixie out of her Stampede then the least we can do is take the Mason Dixon out of our OuterContinental Championship. Besides, remember John's wise words we should always live by... Dick Togo for life, homie!

121. Hulk Hogan
Kicking off things with arguably the biggest wrestling star of all time. Both matches showed another level to Hogan that many thought he didn't have.

122. Genichiro Tenryu
Jumping over to the land of the rising sun  for one of the most traveled puro stars of all time. His two featured matches are at two totally different points of his career and highlight all the traits that made him great.

123. KENTA (x2)
124. Ricky Marvin (x2)
125. Katsuhiko Nakajima (x2)

All three top junior weights of all time. All three in large part from NOAH. All three two time MDTSOCWWKD champions. This would make for one hell of a round Robin tournament.

126. Kazusada Higuchi
Kazusada was a fresh young face to interject in the middle of these wrestling notables. Both matches really shined a light on him.

127. "Speedball" Mike Bailey (x2)
128. Zack Sabre Jr (x2)

Two times the fun with these double bubbles over here. These matches would definitely be on anyone's Best Of DVD. Top indy talent showing why they earned the spots they are in.

129. A-Kid
His title run was aces. Some might even say five stars. A-Kid kicked in the door with his ZSJ match to get all the eyes on him. I love finding them hidden gem matches but sometimes the matches staring you in the face are the best choice.

130. Ricochet
The king, the prince, the one and only. Whatever you want to call him Ricochet had two matches in our title run that showcased how dynamic he can be.

Looking back on this list it's crazy to see how we could jump from one of the most successful of all time all the way to one of the greatest indy wrestlers of all time. Featuring 6 different nationalities in 4 different countries.
