Bulldog's gonna win whether he wants to or not.
At least that was 12 years after their feud. I still want to know how Baba justified Jim Brunzell and Nick Bockwinkel teaming at one of the tag tournaments when their AWA stuff would have been seen in Japan.
I've heard/read that Fujinami was used as a bargaining chip as WCCW told Lawler, Verne, whoever that they'd put the WCCW title on the Dragon and ruin the SuperClash main event.Tatsumi Fujinami defended the IWGP Heavyweight Title in Memphis in December of '88. I'm assuming this was somehow tied into his cameo at SuperClash III. @BruiserBrody ?
Even weirder though he showed up in ECW during the Eastern days. I'm sure Fujinami was psyched to have an opportunity to wrestle in a sports bar.
Gotta be honest, I even watched the 3 minute "making of" vignette for the commercial and I cannot tell who the fuck the other guy is. Has to be some other SoCal worker of the day, and I'm not particularly well-versed on late 90s/early 00s SoCal indies beyond XPW and PWG.
