In the U.S.-Wrestling Promoters didn't seem to have a problem with a MASKED MAN
fighting for a high profile Recognised Title-even a World Title-for example THE PATRIOT
in the '90's!! BUT in the U.K. Promoters seemed to be against HOODED Fighters having
a tilt at a Title!-Why?-The classic example was JOINT and KENDO NAGASAKI! The reason
wheeled out was ONLY a British Wrestler could contest the Brirtish Heavyweight Championship. KENDO MAY have been Japanese etc.etc.! It is pretty much accepted now
that JOINT PROMOTIONS were WELL AWARE all along that he was British!! So why?
Shouldn't the BEST Heavyweight be Champion??
It didn't bother Promoters with REAL VISION though!-As far back as the early '60's
DOCTOR DEATH was challenging MARINO for his WORLD Title and Belt!! 'Twas a Draw!
Why do YOU think JOINT didn't want MASKED Champions?
