* GondorCallsForAid: After Misawa and 92% of the native wrestlers of All Japan announced they would be in NOAH full time after ''Summer Action Series 2000'', Moto Baba announced that Genichiro Tenryu, whom Giant Baba had barred from the promotion before he died, would be returning and when he did, he closed down WAR and brought the promotion's roster with him.

* LesserStar: Akira Taue. Misawa, Kobashi & Kawada are all workrate legends for their famed abilities in the ring. Taue, by contrast, was merely above average, and often looked clumsy and ungainly in the ring compared to the others. He's well-known as the least-gifted of the four, and most of his Five-Star matches were tag bouts involving the others (in fact, every single one of them, including his lone one-on-one Fiver, involved Misawa). He still had some classics, but they were never on the level of the singles combos of the other three.

All Japan Pro Wrestling was one of two wrestling promotions (the other being Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling) to split off from the JWA in the [[TheSeventies 1970s]]. All Japan was established in 1972. It competed with NJPW for supremacy in the wrestling field, employing a more "real sport"-based approach to professional wrestling storylines than NJPW's more WWE-like "sports entertainment" atmosphere (although, ironically, everything else about the promotion, primarily the wrestling style, was much more westernized than New Japan). It co founded by Akio Sato and Giant Baba, the latter of whom gained a reputation as a booker for his ability to slowly but surely build talent up into superstars.

* FragileSpeedster: AHII's gimmick. At 5'5 143lbs he's not ''that'' small to most men but he's a shrimp of a pro wrestler.
