Muga - Means selflessness

group. Their style is traditional wrestling.

Fujinami is one of the very best in Japan having held the Great Antonio Inoki to a sixty minute
draw in a famous match in Japan. Osamu Nishimura is the protégé of the Great Hiro Matsuda
and outstanding proponent of traditional wrestling style in Japan. Marti will be traveling with me
to Japan as a working videographer/photographer. Adam "The Royal Stud Windsor" will be
traveling to Japan for introduction as the next American Superstar in Japan.

Terry Funk. We will be taking on legendary competition in Tatsumi Fujinami and Bob Backlund.
