And Now, All Japan's Three Aces in a Dance Routine

Misawa wasn't always this serious

Toshiaki Kawada, Kenta Kobashi, and the late Mitsuharu Misawa are generally considered among the three finest workers of all-time and a trio of the baddest men to step into the ring in the 1990s and beyond. They constituted the core of All Japan Pro Wrestling's height in the '90s, and then while Kawada stayed behind, Misawa founded and Kobashi followed him to Pro Wrestling NOAH at the turn of the century. Their legends are all, in a word, unfuckwithable. But as fate would have it, their showmanship extended far beyond the ring:

Yes, the three aces are doing an elaborate dance routine and singing J-Pop on what appears to be a gameshow of some sorts. It's wonderfully silly and delightfully amusing, especially since ugly-ass Kawada's the one who was chosen to sing lead. He did the Lex Luger pec-bounce at the end for a female audience member who was quite taken with him. Seriously, watch the video; you will gain a new appreciation for three men who deserve it.
