Refresh me on who Super Black Ninja was, please.

It was unrelated to Super Clash III. World Class was openly soliciting bookings for cards on its TV, either asking for fundraiser type shows or fishing for local promoters to give the promotion a guarantee in exchange for getting to book wrestlers and get plugs on the locally aired TV show. A guy whose name escapes me gave it a go in these venues. He may have had a connection to Buddy Roberts who was in the process of winding down his career in World Class in order to move to Chicago where lived until his death.

I kind of thought that but the timing seemed off. This must've been right before he went to Atlanta.

Wow! Talk about bringing back some memories. I was at the Hammond card. I vividly remember being pissed when the announcement was made that Garvin and Hayes weren't showing.
