Gotch/Yamada No-Kill Shelter
He wasn’t flashy or flamboyant, didn’t cut money promos, and didn’t care much for gimmicks.
But he didn’t have to. He was Karl Gotch.
Never heard of him? Then chances are you haven’t followed the business very long.
In the hallowed halls of wrestling history, Karl Gotch has a special place at the front of the line. None were ever tougher, none likely ever will be.
He faced Kenji Kawaguchi twice in matches for the Shooto Middleweight Championship, but he was submitted in both occasions.
