On Sunday last, 3rd September, Kendo Nagasaki appeared at the Head Bar in Stretford, near Manchester.
Kendo was interviewed (masked) by host Mark Adams, followed the the opportunity for photos with the star himself.
After a brief break, Kendo/Peter re appeared without his mask and answered questions from those in attendance. As at previous recent public appearances, Kendo/Peter was a friendly, witty and fascinating person to spend a few hours with. he repeated much of what we know already from his book and other interviews. However, there were a few things which I hadn't heard before, including the gruesome account of how he really lost part of his finger - a very different story to that told by Max Crabtree.
If you have the opportunity to attend a similar event with Kendo, I would definitely reccomend going. It was particularly fascinating to hear his memories of wrestling in the 1960s and 1970s, both with the different promoters within Joint Promotions and around the world in Spain, Canada and Japan.
