  1. No, FMW-E still exists. They are running two shows in Hokkaido on October 1st and October 2nd. They have pretty much been dead since December though as they are only running house shows bought by sponsors. They were losing money running once a month shows in Yokohama so they stopped doing that. Fire Blast Wrestling is not a new promotion. It is a name change from Fire Pro-Wrestling that started back up in 2016 and ran as recently as July. Onita does not run Fire Blast Wrestling. The company just bases their shows off him. Onita hasn't put his own money in a company since FMW in 1995. Even Onita Pro was financed by sponsors to where he wasn't putting up his own money.

    History of FMW

    FMW Stories Episode 1 - a new show I started going over specific FMW topics with stories attached to them with pictures and clips to go along with it. This episode covers the Creation of FMW with Atsushi Onita and how everything lead to the start of the first big time independent promotion in Japan.
  6. I have never even heard of such a rumor. Gannosuke retired because he was 40 and been dealing with many injuries and was tired of not making that much money the last couple of years. If he was hiding, he probably wouldn't have had started two separate bars, continued training for Ice Ribbon, made two movies, been to every FREEDOMS show in Tokyo selling his stuff, promoted his own shows under his own name multiple times a year, and working for the Guts World office until Ishijima convinced him to come out of retirement so that he could help draw their first Korakuen Hall show. If he was "under ground" he did a horrible job at it, because I saw him every year from 2009-2013 I went to Japan while he was retired. The Arai situation was much different as FMW was a major company and WMF under Gannosuke the last three years was a promotion that ran one show a month in a 300 seat building. They are night and day different situation, and that's even if Gannosuke even went the route for financial support you're saying.
  7. They came over to my house and interviewed me for three hours. I gave them every detail of that night of FMW in one sitting without notes. It was a lot, mentally fried me the rest of the interview, as it was very detailed. So they had all the information, but time wise cut to the chase. Don't know why they said school yard when I specifically told them a park. I also got them Ricky, Arai's daughter, and Hayabusa's daughter for the show.

  9. NOW was Kendo Nagasaki's baby and when it died it allowed for Big Japan to be created with Kojika and Nagasaki.
  10. Christmas 2013. It's a really good match, but it didn't air on Samurai and just released on Commercial video. He didn't like the magazine that week gave more attention to the semi-main of Takashi Sasaki vs. Minoru Fujita which wasn't as good of a match. Death Match Carnival 2012. It was the biggest FREEDOMS show/match at the time until 2018.

    History of FMW Volume 48 is up going over the year 2018 with clips. We go over Atsushi Onita coming out of retirement after a year and the storyline reason why as well as his return to CZW. Mr. Gannosuke retires again for good as he has a series of farewell matches against storied opponents for him. Masashi Takeda has a series of incredible matches while being both Big Japan and FREEDOMS champion culminating in two incredible matches with Jun Kasai and much more.
  13. Sorry! Just got the notification that I was tagged in this. The ECW Hardcore TV show from 12/31/97 opened pretty much to this part of the Onita vs. Kanemura match maybe a couple of seconds prior and then they showed the explosion like Styles was there. Then they showed stuff on the show from 12/22/97 Korakuen Hall like Sabu vs. Sandman as if it was the same tour with the ECW guys as Kawasaki Stadium from September with Joey calling those matches like he was there. They did not show anything else besides that clip of the Kawasaki Stadium show.
  14. It was a "performance" and never promoted as a match since they were not actually going to be doing any moves. The ZERO1 sponsor for the Sumo Hall show that got postponed is a big 90's wrestling fan and wanted to bring in a bunch of retired/semi-retired stars for the show and do a simulation match where they're getting paid and not breaking a retirement vow since it's a performance and not a match. The Kudo performance was an example of how it would look with Kudo already being contracted with ZERO1 so she was not really in the position to say no and there was no doubt if Shark could physically do it, she would.
