Masada, the RCW Title situation, & Mr. Yebisu
As many of you know, Masada has returned to Japan for yet another tour. Shortly before leaving, he captured the RCW Championship at March 10 "Battle Lines" with a win over "The Smashing Machine" Ikaika in one of the wildest brawls in RCW history.
After consulting with new RCW Commissioner Ray The Voice, I have decided to continue to honor the title reign of Masada. Although he will not be able to return to the United States to defend it until this summer, he has only had one title defense thus far, and RCW will continue to credit Masada as the company's champion.
As a matter of fact, Masada took the championship with him to Japan. As some of you may know, RCW has been in the Japanese press in the past, most notably when Texas Explosion 2003 aired in its entirety on Samurai TV (the bootleg Japanese version still exists out there) and when The Great Kazushi Miyamoto wrestled in RCW. Hopefully, this trend will continue with Masada taking the RCW Title to Japan.
Speaking of Japan, I have not heard from former commissioner Mr. Yebisu since his outburst at Payback. After resigning from his position and quitting the company, Yebisu literally stripped in the ring and walked away. Although I have had differences with Yebisu in the past, hopefully he can still participate in some way as he did bring international talent to RCW.
