It's January 1st, 1991. The wrestling world doesn't know it yet, but everything is about to change.

The past half-decade has been the biggest boom period in wrestling history. Despite a recession, the World Wrestling Federation, the global leader in wrestling based in the United States, has seen its fortunes shoot through the roof. Their success has largely been built on the strength of Hulk Hogan's popularity and the growth of WrestleMania. The territory system is all but dead, with only a few promotions still holding onto the NWA banner. Notably, World Championship Wrestling, the successor company to Jim Crockett Promotions now owned by TBS, Inc., still carriers the torch for the NWA. For how much longer is anyone's guess.

Throughout the United States, countless independent promotions continue to spring up and gasp for air. A promoter from New York, Herb Abrams, has resurrected the UWF name due to lack of copyright protection and conned a broadcaster into distributing his show despite a lack of big-budget production.

Japan is entering its own golden age; a golden age of heavyweights for All Japan and Junior Heavyweights for New Japan. With aces like Tsuruta still in their prime, legends like Inoki, Baba and Andre the Giant still working tours and young stars like Misawa, Kawada, Liger, Chono, and Muta all rising up the card, the 90s are shaping up to be perhaps the greatest decade in the history of Japanese wrestling.

Additionally, the growth of Japanese independent wrestling is unprecedented. Hardcore "garbage" feds like W*NG and FMW are blazing a new trail in wrestling while men like Tenryu try to break the stranglehold of the big two. Joshi Puroresu is stealing the show with women like Bull Nakano, Reggie Bennett, Akira Hokuto, and many others putting on matches that rival the men.

Still, storms are rising in the wrestling world. Storms capable of doing significant damage. How the wrestling world is shaped at the end is anyone's guess, but one thing is certain: night is falling on the Golden Era and the dawn will bring with it certain change.

Will you be bringing us 1992 also?

The plan is to tackle 1992 and then take it on into 93 as well.

Good luck with them. I built my 93 from a modified 91, having waited on J finally saying he wasn't going to release a 93. I think most of us had a 93 we'd put together. There'll be stuff in my 93 that you can pick and utilise if you want. It's not about dressing the window, it's about the view provided from inside.
