One was a wrestling show and the other a paid propaganda piece. Listen to the commentary, night and day difference.

So shows in korea did not make any money? I understand how propaganda issue is much more disgusting but how does it make njpw or wcw any better that they only make money as a “wrestling” show.

It was part of the Pyongyang International Sports and Culture Festival for Peace, where everyone had to proclaim allegiance to Kim Jong Il. From the May 8 95 Observer": North Korea put on the show with Inoki as a way to garner respect from the rest of the world"

The North Korea one was worse because everyone was forced to attend and pledge allegiance to Kim Jong Il. Admittedly I don't blame WCW as I don't think they knew what they were getting into but Inoki knew what it was.

You didn’t see that Ric Flair promo about the economic and agricultural policies of Kim Il-sung?
