Anyone saying Yoko was a bad wrestler, knows nothing about wrestling.
People talk about weight issues concerning guys like yoko, and those people know absolutely nothing about dealing with a 4-500 pound problem.
In his earlier WWF days he was doing amazing stuff for a guy his size. His matches looked legit. And when it boils right down to it wrestling is about larger than life figures. dean ambrose, cm punk, danielson, and on down the line, I see people more impressive and awe inspiring than them at the grocery store, let alone the gym. There is nothing special about looking at them.. nothing. Yokozuna was a 400 pound well over 6 foot behemoth Samoan, in Japanese garb. from his entrance, to the pairing with Mr. fuji to the Banzai bomb he was an incredible character, a very good wrestler (especially at his size) and a quite deserving champion.
To me it sounds like there's at least a couple people above me that need to call a whaambulance because someone they would have liked to be champion wasn't because Yoko was.
You're so wrong.
Yokozuna did amazing stuff "For his size". That's the excuse I love to hear. Mae Young does amazing stuff for an 80 year old women- Does that make her the champ? And about Yoko's size- A guy in his size should be dead, so the fact that he moves alone makes him pretty good for his size. That doesn't mean he helped anything.
Yokozuna was the worse star ever. He wasn't a star at all- If he was such a deserving champ and a big star and a great character, explain to me why he never got any other main event run after his title run ended?
The thing is simple- Yoko was a stupid character. He was an undeserving champion because he sucked.
He was a champ at a time where wrestling was dead. If the same Yokozuna would come today, you will hate the guy. Tell me one feud or match of Yokozuna that you've liked! And by the way, if you'll say the casket match, then I'll just say anyone could've been there instead of Yoko.
Yoko had a dry character and his managers improved it a bit- But it didn't help. You know what? If he was 250 pounds lighter, he wouldn't be an uppercarder, nevertheless main eventer!
It's right that initially you see Yoko and his size is interesting, but what other qualities he had? He had nothing. Yoko was one of the factors to the most dark time at Wrestling.
And you're the one who needs a whaambulance because you start defending on your beloved Yoko, who... Yup, sucked.
