    It wasn’t Steiner. The wrestler in question wrestled at both shows I mentioned and the rest of the clues still apply

    BK, was it Steiner? If not, I don't think you need to back out. Might as well keep going.
    I wasn't adding more, I was simply stating that IF it was Steiner than his clue was incorrect. Not saying he was the answer.

    OK, will think more.


    EDIT: The list of people who won Tag Championships in WCW and WWE and/or TNA is not that short, but there is significantly less people who could have won best maneuver.

    The only person who might have won a best maneuver, and won tag championships in WWE was Rey Mysterio...for what move? No Idea, b/c when he was in WCW he used so many different things, but I cannot remember if her won tag title in WCW without cheating. And I think he might have been there for the international shows.

    It's not Mysterio, though he did win best maneuver, he was not on the Collision in Korea card. Otherwise, he fits all the clues

    Yes, you did. His clue referenced three major promotions. Your 'correction', such as it is, mentioned one more. That's the definition of adding more.

    It is also obvious that 2/3 and 3/4 are not mutually exclusive here, because if the final title/company weren't considered major in the initial reckoning, what are you left with? 2/3.

    And also, more to the point, this isn't a debate. In this game, the person setting the question gets the benefit of the doubt. By all means ask for clarification but refrain from trying to correct them over their use of entirely subjective terms like 'major'. So show people that respect, please.

    Alright, carry on.

    In light of the above I will clarify that my word choice was deliberate and when I used the phrase “the Big Three” it was meant to refer to the three organizations that were contemporaneously referred to as such. Let me know if that clears up the clue. I don’t want to name the organizations without being asked to do so, but wanted to at least provide some context.

    The internationally co-promoted shows... these were the ones in Japan, yeah? (I forget if it was All Japan or New Japan... But early to mid 90s?

    Sorry, I gave my stricter criteria last page. I absentmindedly forgot about all three New Japan Supershows. So for purposes of this round of clues so just ignore them.

    The shows in question for this particular clue are: When Worlds Collide (promoted under the AAA banner but with WCW production and Bischoff securing PPV) and Collision in Korea (promoted by New Japan and WCW).

    Well I'm going to guess that the three promotions are WWE, WCW and ECW, so therefore maybe Chris Benoit?

    I don't know if he has the tag belts for clue 3 but pretty sure 2 Cold Scorpio fits the other two clues?

    Prime got it

    He was awarded best maneuver (450 splash in 1992 by the Observer)
    Was on the two PPVs in question
    Won the belts with Bagwell in WCW and Sandman in ECW

    Cool.

    1) I am a former IWGP Champion.
    2) I competed at the Olympics in the 100kg freestyle division.
    3) All of my matches in the Americas were for WCW, and I worked in around 25 televised/PPV matches for them.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Kensuke Sasaki for this one. He looks most like he may have been a wrestler and I know he dabbled in MMA

    Both satisfy clue one but I think that's it.

    Only other person I can think of is the Great Muta, but he was on well over 25 Televised WCW shows.

    And in several other American promotions, too.

    It's an IWGP Champ so it's not really obscure, but it's definitely tougher than Muta.

    There is only one other guys who I know were IWGP Champ and worked for WCW and they are Big Van Vader and Scott Norton, but they both worked much more than 25 televised matches.

    It's neither. And this guy did work for WCW, not only do I remember it but checked it before I set the clue.

    I'm out....No clue.

    I know the 4 guys:
    Vader
    Norton
    Muta
    Chono

    If there was someone else.....Prime, you win again for finding these obscure wrestlers.

    He's really not that obscure. If you watch NJPW regularly, I promise you'll know him. There is a catch in one of the clues but I haven't loaded it up by going genuinely obscure this time around.

    I don’t watch NJPW, so maybe that’s why.

    I don’t watch New Japan, but I’m wondering if we’re not incorrectly assuming IWPG heavyweight champion rather than some other title.

    Most of the former Japanese olympians (Saito, Hase, Jumbo) I can think of worked several American promotions.

    I’m at a loss as I don’t know enough about lesser known Japanese wrestlers

    One last and final shot....Didn’t A.J. styles wrestle for WCW for a time? But he was not an Olympic Wrestler....so never mind.

    Good thought BK, but no, there's no trick in the title question.


    OK some more clues for the next 24 hrs.

    1) I am a former IWGP Champion.
    2) I competed at the Olympics in the 100kg freestyle division.
    3) All of my matches in the Americas were for WCW, and I worked in around 25 televised/PPV matches for them.

    And now....

    4) I was born in Kyoto.
    5) When I worked in WCW it was under a gimmick name, while I wrestled under my real name in NJPW.
    6) I have appeared at every Wrestle Kingdom show except one, though many of these appearances have been in the New Japan Rumble.

    I think someone with knowledge in this area needs to have a crack or more clues won't make much of a difference.

    But just in case....

    1) I am a former IWGP Champion.
    2) I competed at the Olympics in the 100kg freestyle division.
    3) All of my matches in the Americas were for WCW, and I worked in around 25 televised/PPV matches for them.
    4) I was born in Kyoto.
    5) When I worked in WCW it was under a gimmick name, while I wrestled under my real name in NJPW.
    6) I have appeared at every Wrestle Kingdom show except one, though many of these appearances have been in the New Japan Rumble.
    7) I beat The Great Muta to win the G1 Climax.
    8) I was the last person to hold the IWGP Heavyweight title for less than 50 days.
    9) My last singles match on PPV was in Japan, for a famous belt, against a former tag champion in the WWE.
