    Vader makes his NJPW debut at the Sumo Hall in Tokyo, challenging Antonio Inoki to a match and knocking him out with a Powerslam for the win.

Vader immediately skyrocketed to the top of NJPW, as it had been years since Inoki had lost a match via clean pinfall.

    And that's a wrap folks. If I'm not mistaken we got a post in this thread every single day for 2013. That was the goal and honestly year ago I didn't think it would happen. Special thanks to Macho Machismo for keeping the thread going all year. If not for him this thread probably would have faded away in March. Have a good 2014 everyone.
