For my blog post this week, we have been asked to talk about an experience encountering an Asian media, product, text, topic, or service with an autoethnological approach. Therefore, I will be focusing this bost around my first experience in watching a New Japan Pro Wrestling Match.
I am a wrestling fan and have been for many years now. I grew up watching WWE and cried when my favourite wrestler, Jeff Hardy, was made to retire from WWE in late August 2009. I dropped off watching WWE due to this and also due to moving houses and also away from friends who watched wrestling. I had a substantial break between 2011 and 2014. In 2014 I came back to WWE harder than ever and became a hardcore fan of the product. In 2017, my whole life as a wrestling fan hanged when I saw an insane gif on Facebook.
