Other Notes

  • Andre the Giant's 70's NJPW record (75-60-10) was composed of 17 handicap match wins, a poor tag record (29-58-1) and more impressive singles record (29-2-9).  His two losses were to both to Antonio Inoki - a count out loss 5/30/78 in the MSG Series Tournament Final and a referee decision loss 10/7/76 when challenging for Real World Marital Arts Title.
  • Both Sakaguchi and Fujinami had over 600 singles matches during this era; those two plus Antonio Inoki, Strong Kobayashi, Osamu Kido all recorded over 200 tag matches.
  • Osamu Kido was the King of Battle Royals winning four (including three in1972 alone).
  • The five people with most divergent win/loss between their tag and singles records were:
    Osamu Kido (won 41% singles, won 77% tag), Kantaro Hoshino (won 38% singles, won 69% tag), Tiger Jeet Singh (won 51% singles, won 23% tag), Haruka Eigen (won 33% singles, won 56% tag) and Katsuhisa Shibata (won 48% singles, won 82% tag).
  • Antonio Inoki had a 100+ NJPW match winning streak between 5/28/73 (where he defeated Steve Rickard) and 2/22/74 (where he defeated Eric the Animal).  The next day he lost as part of a six-man team (with Shibata and Sakaguchi) two falls to one against the the trio of Les Thornton, Eric the Animal and Andre the Giant.

Notes

  • Between 1980 and 1986, Seiji Sakaguchi had more matches than anyone else on the NJPW roster five different years (1980, 1983-1986).
  • Singles Match leaders: Seiji Sakaguchi (496), Tatsumi Fujinami (405), Makoto Arakawa (395), Yoshiaki Fujiwara (329), Black Cat (323), Osamu Kido (303)
  • Tag Match warriors: Antonio Inoki (1,106), Tatsumi Fujinami (1,045), Seiji Sakaguchi (968), Kengo Kimura (946), Riki Choshu (695), Kantaro Hoshino (677)
  • An eclectic group of mostly foreigners had singles win record topping 90%: Tiger Mask, Willem Ruska, Bob Backlund, El Signo, Sika, Keith Hart, Mike George, Swede Hanson, Superstar Billy Graham.  Only the Original Tiger Mask had a significant number of singles bouts to discuss: 134 matches netting an impressive 121-3-10 record (97.5% win!).  Sayama three losses were twice to The Cobra (George Takano) in 1984 and a Count-Out loss to The Dynamite Kid in 1982.
  • Andre the Giant lost eight times in NJPW in the 1980s: two to Stan Hansen (1980/1981 - by DQ and Count Out), five times to Inoki (1981, 1985-1986; some by DQ and count-out, once as Giant Machine) and once to Kengo Kimura in the 1986 Block A for the IWGP League (by DQ).
  • Hulk Hogan was also protected during his stints in New Japan: half of his twelve losses were to Inoki; Hogan's unsuccessfully challenged Bob Backlund twice (1980/1981); Dusty Rhodes got the better of the Hulkster in 1980 beating him by DQ; Hulk lost via Count Out to both Stan Hansen (5/10/81) and Andre the Giant (12/9/82) as well.
  • Wrestlers with the greatest disparity between their singles and tag win record were Dick Murdoch (44% tag win vs. 65% singles win), Kazuo Yamazaki (66% tag win vs. 26% singles win), Andre The Giant (53% tag win vs. 89% singles win), Bill Eadie (39% tag win vs. 62% singles win), Mark Rocco (24% tag win vs. 60% singles win), El Canek (27% tag win vs. 50% singles win), Naoki Sano (52% tag win vs. 76% singles win), Stan Hansen (40% tag win vs. 76% singles win), Abdullah The Butcher (20% tag win vs. 48% singles win) and Bret Hart (41% tag win vs. 64% singles win).
  • Rookie Tatsutoshi Goto had a rough patch between 12/2/1982 (his debut, a loss to Kazuo Yamazaki) and 4/17/84 (a DQ loss to Bruce Hart) netting over sixty losses.  His fortune changed on 5/17/84 when he scored his first NJPW win by besting Pat Tanaka.
  • Original Tiger Mask had a tremendous run of consecutive wins (over fifty) from 9/8/82 (teaming with Kido to defeat Chris Adams & Pete Roberts) to 1/16/83 (a trio victory with Black Cat and Hoshino over Los Missioneros de la Muerte).  (He went to a double count-out on 1/17/83 with Black Tiger to break the flow of wins.)

Other Notes

  • Lots of singles matches: Masahiro Chono (901), Keiji Muto (873), Shinya Hashimoto (805), Kensuke Sasaki (810), Takashi Iizuka (806), Hiro Saito (783), Shiro Koshinaka (773), Super Strong Machine (762), Tatsutoshi Goto (743), Jushin Thunder Liger (734)
  • Not as many tag team matches: Black Cat (368), Tatsuhito Takaiwa (329), Shinjiro Otani (323)
  • Both Father (Chavo Guerrero) and Son (Chavo Guerrero Jr.) made NJPW appearances in 1996 - dad did a April tour losing to Fujinami and Nogami whilst son came in for Nov-Dec 1996 to wrestle Black Cat, Brad Armstrong, Norio Honaga, El Samurai and Jushin Liger. Likewise Dusty and Dustin Rhodes teamed together on 1/4/92 show to defeat Kim Duk and Masa Saito. Hogan's nephew Horace visited in April 1993 under the moniker Axe Boulder.
  • Five people with the most divergent singles and tag records were: Black Cat (51% singles win vs. 29% tag win), Jushin Thunder Liger (72% singles win vs. 49% tag win), Osamu Kido (75% singles win vs. 49% tag win), Shinya Hashimoto (76% singles win vs. 55% tag win), and Super Strong Machine (77% singles win vs. 50% tag win).
  • Shinya (Togi) Makabe started his New Japan career with 55 singles losses from 2/15/97 (loss to Otani) until 3/17/98 (loss to Black Cat) when he was granted a win while teaming with Otani against Takaiwa and Yoshie.  His first singles win came seven months later when he defeated Yutaka Yoshie on 10/15/98.
  • This seems fitting as Yutaka Yoshie also began his NJ career with a losing streak beginning on 12/9/94 with a loss to Kojima and followed by a year's absence only to lose against in December to Black Cat on 12/24/95.  Yoshie wouldn't win a match until 9/14/96  when his six-man team with Junji Hirata and Satoshi Kojima would defeat Heisei Ishingun (Akira Nogami, Akitoshi Saito & Michiyoshi Ohara).  The night before Yoshie had lost a single match to Tatsuhito Takaiwa.  However, only a month later Yoshie would score his first singles victory by defeating Takaiwa on 10/23/96.
  • Twenty wrestlers appeared at least five times in each of the three eras (70's, 80's, 90's) for New Japan: Tatsumi Fujinami (3068), Antonio Inoki (2364), Osamu Kido (2200), Kengo Kimura (2117), Riki Choshu (1767), Super Strong Machine (1517), Kantaro Hoshino (1369), Kuniaki Kobayashi (1342), Yoshiaki Fujiwara (1143), Masa Saito (923), George Takano (689), Bad News Allen (586), Masanobu Kurisu (584), Gran Hamada (477), Tiger Jeet Singh (429), Bill Eadie (358), Ryuma Go (332), Stan Hansen (269), Tony St. Clair (247) and 
  • Perro Aguayo (95).  Two names narrowly missing this list were 
  • Seiji Sakaguchi Strong Kobayashi who teamed together on 3/1/1992 to defeat Tiger Jeet Singh & Umanosuke Ueda by DQ.  (Seiji also did return in 2003 for two additional matches.)
