I believe there was a russian guy, shalman hashmikov, or something like that who won the IGWP title in 1989, but lost it some months later...

Abdullah The Butcher, Stan Hansen and Bruiser Brody contributed a lot to All Japan prior to the 90s.

They were probably the best American Strong Style wrestlers of that time period.
Stay sharp...

Karl Gotch

Postby miroma » 2005/01/23 Sun 12:40 pm

Even though I have yet to see a Karl Gotch match, I believe that he is the only man who can rightfully be called the greatest gaijin ever. This is because of how superb Gotch was said to be in the ring, and how he had a hand in training many of Japan's major stars. Gotch was said to be so good, that he is known as the *** of Pro Wrestling in Japan.

Johnny Ace had a decent run in All Japan, but let's not forget that this board is for the pre-90s topics only.

This board is for pre-90s topics only. I don't think Steiner Bros as a team wrestled in Japan before the NJ-WCW joint Tokyo Dome card in early 90s.

Sorry about the inclusion of the Steiner Bros., but the title of the topic is a bit misleading.


BTW, I think the greatest and most important gaijin grappler would be Lou Theze. He did put over Rikidozan, so you must commend him for that act, especially in the post-WWII years.
