Masao "Rusher" Kimura, the man who popularized the cage matches in Japan, passed away due to aspiration pneumonia at the age of 68. He was known to be a very nice person that nobody disliked.
In 2003/12, he was named the Permanent President of the (NOAH) Wrestlers Association by NOAH's then-president Mitsuharu Misawa. Most likely, Misawa kept Kimura in payroll after his retirement.
There isn't a Title History (that I can find here) for the WWA (World Wrestling Allstars). They had 3 Championships: The Heavyweight Championship (that was Unified with the NWA Title when NWA Champ Jeff Jarrett Beat WWA Champ Sting): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WWA_World_Heavyweight_Championship#Title_history

For time being, I will keep the listings as they are.
I was wondering if anyone had the full card results for the following New Japan tours featuring WWF Champions Bob Backlund and Hulk Hogan:
A shocking story has been spreading among the fans in Japan since an announcement was made by the legendary heel Dump Matsumoto in her own blog (in Japanese).
Apparently, her doctor told her that she only has three more years in her life. No detail was provided in the blog except that she could drink beer twice a week.
Please pray for New Japan legend Kantaro Hoshino, who has been hospitalized since 2009/02/04 due to stroke.
New Japan will be sending the entire profit from selling the T-shirt (pic) to Hoshino.
New Japan president Naoki Sugabayashi visited Hoshino on 2009/03/13 and saw him wearing "Inoki-ism" jersey and using a towel with New Japan logo as pillow cover.
