It was All Japan Pro Wrestling and then Pro Wrestling Noah, after Kobashi left with Misawa and the rest to form Noah. He never wrestled for NJPW. It is like saying Sting made his career in WWE.New Japan I think.
Ibushi looks like having a death wish every time he wrestles. He wasn't under contract when this happened and I don't know if Kendrick was. Ibushi and ZSJ smelled the shit that would happen with the cruiserweight division and rejected the contracts. The time showed they were right since they are currently on a level they would have never been in WWE.
During the 90's AJPW had the best wrestling matches and some of the craziest finishers but all these crazy finishers were exchanged only between some of the ring's finnest.Also doesn’t say much for the talent that ‘took’ the finish. You let someone give that move to you, then it’s hard to feel too sorry if they got hurt...
