Yeah, it basically says there is a blurred line between shoot fighting and "worked" Pro Wrastlin.


The blurred line between "shoot" organizations and mainstream "worked" (and quite ridiculous) wrestling was once again demonstrated in 1995 when the magazine BASEBALL SHA sponsored an interpromotional event at Tokyo Dome.

So is this your supporting evidence for how realistic Shoot Fighting is??

I hope you had a fire extinguisher handy to put your ego out.

I didn't start this thread. You were the one that wanted it started and had someone else post a link.
I read the article and havent found much relevance to the other thread other than it was written by someone you mentioned.
"Why" You wanted it started I am not sure.
I am still trying to figure out your motivation for what seems like re-starting a closed thread.
Based on that it would seem like you are trying to start a flame war.

That coming from the guy who drops "Internet challenges":rolleyes: almost daily.
 
If your argument is based on your previous statement that this stuff is only second to Baseball in Japan I find it hard to believe after reading how much financial trouble these groups had/have from the following portion of the article you posted.


By combining with New Japan Pro-Wrestling, the UWFi scucessfully rebounded after nearly going out of business early in 1995. Nobuhiko Takada's "winning" of the IWGP title (the match, like all New Japan bouts was a mainstream pro-wrestling "work") helped save UWFi financially. However, in the view of some fans it compromised the UWFi's "stiff style" reputation. Lou Thesz, upset by the blatant mixing of the two styles, asked Nobuhiko Takada to vacate his UWFi title. Takada complied and subsequently established a new organization called Kingdom.

The creation of Pancrase in 1993 deprived the PWFG of our of their major stars and in the following years the rganization started having fewer and fewer shows. In an effort to finance the organization, Yoshiaki Fujiwara once again appeared on mainstream "worked" professional wrestling shows for New Japan. The appearances further undermined the image of the promotion and did not provide the necessary funds. On November 19, 1995 the PWGF folded. All of its members, with the exception of Yoshiaki Fujiwara, left the Fujiwaragumi and formed "Battle arts."
The current situation remains rather blurred. The Shooto organization has lost Satoru Sayama (who has returned to mainstream "worked" pro-wrestling for financial reasons) but remains 100% "shoot". Pancrase appears to have evolved into a "shoot" organization as well. However, they have lost their major star, Wayne (Ken) Shamrock, to the WWF. RINGS remains approximately 60% "worked" with a few reality based martial arts matches on its cards. Akira Maeda participates in both RINGS matches and the occasional mainstream "worked" match for New Japan. Nobuhiko Takada's Kingdom organization continues to promote the "stiff style" but yet Takada has faced Rickson Gracie in a reality based martial arts match and two Kingdom wrestlers were in a recent UFC tournament. There is another "shoot" organization called SAW (submission arts wrestling). Unfortunately, I have no information at this time about either SAW or "Battle arts".

If they were 2nd only to baseball in Japan they would be rolling in cash............doesn't seem like it though.

Guys, this is some friendly advice.

To the left, under the picture or name is a button called PROFILE.

Click on it.

Scroll down and look for the part that says "Add to Ignore List".

Click that, and you will not have to read -anything- someone has said again, unless you want to.



Some other advice for those wishing to debate online:
= Have your facts ready, and have lots of them. 1 source is not considered absolute, but 12 is alot closer to it.
= ReRead before you post to double-check for clearness.
= Spell check.
= Do not abuse the smilies or your signature. We can and will remove them if need be.


Personal attacks, etc are going to be cracked down on harder in the future here...If you cant debate in a professional manner, but instead need to resort to insults, slights, shots and other such behavior, you will find your welcome here rapidly worn out.

We are working to limit the trolls on here. The problems lie when otherwise good folks appear troll-like, or when troll hunters become too much like what they hunt.

This is not directed at any one person, but is a general statement.

1 other point.....

Do not Drink and Compute....
1- its not good for the keyboard if ya spill it
2- it really makes it hard to follow what you post
3- it makes it hard for you to follow whats going on...

and most importantly...

#4y ou might end up writing the next Microsoft Operating System.

:asian:
 
I don't know about anyone else Primo, but I love your posts.

now.....back to the topic of this thread, what was the point your were trying to make?

The conclusions I get from that article is that 'wrestling' in all its flavors is popular in Japan, has its roots in both Judo and the European arts, and that athletes go from 'worked' to 'shoot' orgs regularly. Most of the organizations have $ problems, however thats also common in most US 'Feds', with ECW, WCW and many regionals closed due to $ problems. I believe the NHB feds also had their share, with UFC almost going under at one point.

Oh, and as an aside, the last 'hooker' that worked the US feds was Dean Malenko. :)
