One of the greatest Japanese wrestlers of all time and founder of NJPW has passed at 79. Of course he's also known for his pioneering and somewhat bizarre bout with Muhammad Ali.

Old Nerds like me also remember him as the inspiration for many video game characters in wrestling games, most notably Fighter Hayabusa. Ive only seen a handful of his matches thanks to the internet, but I knew who he was even as a kid and among us school yard wrestling fans, he was revered as Japans Hulk Hogan. He was also as far as I could tell a good and charitable man and I think thats important to remember as well. RIP

I like tournaments, because with the booking on Smackdown, I could see them giving it to Rey or even Chavo. I do think they are trying to move Cena away from the belt, so he can go the next level, I'd wait for WM 21 just so the fans can go happy.
