369. Kintaro Ohki
Kintaro Ohki came from South Korea to train under his hero Rikidozan, and he was able to sit under the learning tree of the most significant Japanese wrestler ever.  Ohki would not reach the heights of Antonio Inoki, but he was an elite performer who was in the main event for years.  Ohki's biggest contributions would be raising the profile of wrestling in South Korea where he would often compete and promote shows.  He was also a regular in Los Angeles, where he would win the WWA Championship.
