So this is a perfect time to look at at The Great Sasuke's many accomplishments and contributions to the pro-wrestling industry.

The Great Sasuke created Michinoku Pro because he wanted to bring pro-wrestling to his hometown of Iwate. In Michinoku Pro's beginning, the staff consisted solely of owner/founder The Great Sasuke and other members of the Michinoku Pro roster. As a wrestler, he has been very successful in Michinoku Pro competition- Sasuke is a 3-time former Tohoku Junior Heavyweight Champion, and has also won titles in tag-team competition, holding the Tohoku Tag Team Championship on four separate occasions.



In 1994 at NJPW's Super J Cup 1st STAGE, The Great Sasuke made an impact during the junior heavyweight tournament, impressing fans and making more people take notice of him. Sasuke defeated former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champions Jushin Thunder Liger and El Samurau during the tournament, making it the finals where he faced Wild Pegasus.



In 1996, The Great Sasuke became original holder of the J-Crown, a unification of eight different titles from eight different companies worldwide. Instead of representing one company, the J-Crown simultaneously represented companies in Japan, America, and Mexico.

In 1997, The Great Sasuke appeared in ECW and WWE having matches with other wrestlers from Michinoku Pro- this was many American pro-wrestling fans' first exposure to the Japanese style of wrestling.



The Great Sasuke made the NWA World Middleweight Championship one of the most legitimate middleweight titles in wrestling- although its roots began in America's NWA, he became Champion in 1999 and was the longest-reigning holder of the Championship. Sasuke defended it many times in Japan at Michinoku Pro events.
