Here’s something you might use. Larry Zbyszko introduces his new sidekick Mr. Go the highly visible ninja.

Anyway Go the Ninja was originally played by the very good Japanese wrestler Ryuma Go but his stint in the AWA was short lived. The gimmick was unceremoniously handed off to Steve Olsonoski and suddenly Mr. Go went from being a badass killer to bumbling jobber sidekick.

That was very interesting and informative, Paul! I’ve never seen this clip before, and…

Wait a minute…

The Ninja is named “Go”?

Seriously?

Maybe a certain aspiring young rapper watched this segment in 1986 and got an idea for a rap he could put to use just a few years later?…

    If only Go would have used his mastery of poisons on Larry Nelson. Outside of “Bingo Bongo Bungo” Ed Whalin he had to be just about the worst person ever given a microphone. Speaking of Stanley Blackburn he made Jack Tunney look like a brilliant statesman since he always seemed like such a utter old fool.

    That clip is a veritable WrestleCrap Gold Mine! Not only do you get Ninja Go, but Larry mentioned Scott LeDoux (RIP), we saw nails-on-a-chalkboard announcer Larry Nelson…plus it was the AWA! What more could a Crapper want?

    AWA used to be so good :(

    Bockwinkel, Robinson, Da Crusher, Mad Dog, Ray Stevens, The East West Connection…even Brunzell made Greg Gagne bearable to watch by carrying the High Flyers.
