* The first of three shows in three days at Korakuen for the expanded “FANTASTICA MANIA” helped set up some of the title matches on the next two shows.
* New Japan has signed BUSHI full-time from All Japan. The move was originally a “loan” like you would see in football/soccer for BUSHI to gain experience in a new environment but New Japan has been so impressed by the masked man that they spoke to All Japan president Masayuki Uchida about it and an agreement was made. A press conference was held with New Japan president Sugabayashi, All Japan president Uchida, and BUSHI himself where the harmonious transfer was announced.
