In 1984 (I think) Riki Choshu left New Japan and took his Ishigun with him, forming a new promotion called Japan Pro Wrestlig, which later had a relationship with All Japan.
Does anybody have or know the location of its logo online?
Even if it's a scaned image from a book, I'd really be interested i having it: my e-mail is \BlueWolf2k2@aol.com\
This is somewhat off topic, but it does deal with Inoki :rolleyes:
Anyways, I know that Inoki was in Bad News Bears 3. Acting as himself and losing to a bunch of bratty kids, so I've been wondering, why the hell did Inoki do this crap? Just to get over in North America? Was a fan of the series? Or did he just do it for ...
Since I got some testimonies and interviews by Christian pro-wrestlers, I decided to add "Faith" section. You can go there by clicking the menu on the left. The URL is:

I posted this on WrestlingClassics.com in reply to a question about the title, so I decided to post here for your info as well:
I don't know when McGuirk actually retired, but his promotion closed in '82. He controlled the title throughout the 50s-70s at least until '80 (could be '82 when his promotion closed).
Nelson Royal was awarded the title on 79/07/28 when the champion Al Madril was too ill for the match. However, ...
I read that one of a few of Andre's legit losses(before the WWF ruined him by having him lose to the Ultimate Warrior every other week) came by the hands of Antonio Inoki when he made The Giant submit. When did this match take place and what did Inoki use to make the big man Quit?
I found this in the October 1984 Issue of Pro Wrestling Illustrated. It shows his title defense schedule while Kerry was champion. I thought whomever was doing the Complete Listing of NWA Title defense webpage would be interested. It doesn't list the outcomes of the matches though.
May 7 - Terry Gordy - Fort Worth, Texas
May 8 - Ric Flair - Muskogee, Oklahoma (Non-Title)
May 9 - Ric Flair - Corpus Cristi, Texas
Did Andre The Giant have any good matches in Japan while he was over there. What where some of his most memorible matches? Was his match with Inoki any good and when did it happen? Which years did he wrestle over there?
Can you also give me some info about Umanosuke Ueda and it's basically the some question with Andre The Giant. What kind of accident was he in?
I was truly saddened to hear of Lou passing away. To me his matches against Rikidozan did two things. They helped cement puro as being a viable form of wrestling in Japan and helped Riki acheive his legendary status. Every gaijin in Japan owes this man a debt as he paved the way for foreigners to be embarced and respected in Japan.:(
