    [How North Korea Held the Greatest Pro Wrestling Event in History]
    The lone American made his way down a long, dingy hallway, past several North Korean officials. He was nervous, afraid of what was to come - not just because of the constant surveillance he was under, but the state of the entire country.
    You see North Korea (at that very moment) was in the midst of a devastating famine; with hundreds of thousands of its citizens suffering and dying from starvation and illnesses. He didn’t know what to expect, but he was there for a reason; and he had a job to do.
    At the entrance, he got his cue, and with one final breath, he stepped out...
    ...into what was a sea of humanity.
    Now this wasn’t just any crowd. This was a 190,000 North Koreans who were conditioned to see Americans as evil; who did not know pro wrestling was staged (that it was predetermined and choreographed)... and here was a man - a blond-haired American man - who embodied everything they were legitimately told to hate.
    This man was the legendary Ric Flair, one of the greatest American professional wrestlers of all time - and at this moment he was wondering, what he had gotten himself into.
    Now this happened in April, 1995, but the events that led to this, actually started 11 months earlier.
    In the video:
    - Collision in Korea event
    - Kim Il-sung's death
    - Kim Jong-il's cult of personality
    - Antonio Inoki & NJPW
    - Politicians who wrestle
    - Kane (Mayor Glenn Jacobs)
    - Record attendance in world's largest May Day stadium
    - Eric Bischoff & WCW
    - WWE / WWF
    - Controversial Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia
    - Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi consulate in Turkey
    - Scott Norton's interrogation
    - North Korean wrestling legend, Rikidozan
    - Muhammad Ali's random guest appearance

    Thanks everyone for being patient while I worked on this video. It's more niche than the usual KB videos, but I think you don't need to know anything about wrestling to enjoy it. For those who are wrestling enthusiasts though, I've included some gems just for you guys.

    North Korea has opted for isolation and silence, while America won't shut up about them. I opt not to form a judgement because I don't know PRK but I know America as a pathological liar and a murderous thief. Kim Jung Un has nuclear aspirations, America has already devastated a nation by using the nuclear bomb. Also, America made my favorite thing in the world illegal worldwide (weed). To me there's no greater evil in human history than America (no, Nazi Germany doesn't even compare)
