Had the Great Sasuke signed with the WWF (and not TAKA Michinoku) in the summer of 1997, how much higher up the rankings would he be? The WWF was planning to build a division around him, but even though his WWF legacy is two matches (both wins over TAKA), he leaves behind an exciting body of work in Japan that made tape traders in the 1990’s drool. That probably isn’t worth that much here though.


Should The Great Sasuke be in the Hall of Fame?

Definitely put him in! - 53.8%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 23.1%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 7.7%
No opinion. - 0%
No way! - 15.4%
