1982: The Year The Hitman Took Over Japan.
"Japanese audiences are great audiences, but they’re just really hard to win over. You really have to know how to pull their strings.”
February 5, 1982. The Nakajima Athletic Club in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. Before the sunglasses and pink singlets, a young, brash Canadian wrestler named Bret Hart took on the legendary Tiger Mask, which brought the Japanese faithful out of their seats. It was a culture clash of a wrestling match, and it was a chapter in lore for the great Hitman!
Our new sweatsuit throws back to one of Hart’s iconic adventures in Japan!
