Christ, how old is Fuchi?  He looked old back in the King's Road glory days. 

Fuchi is 63, Onita 59. Fuchi has been pretty full-time for years, Onita has been in and out of retirement more times than Terry Funk and doesn't wrestle often. It's questionable to say either guy can still go. AJPW is really a mess with few contracted talent left and this is a desperate publicity stunt.

Is there a way to watch AJPW? I haven't found anything current on YouTube and have only seen photos of Fuchi and Onita with the belts.

Is Mil Mascaras still wrestling or is he dead?

That's more than Jericho and way more than Daniels. Dory Funk, Jr. wrestled 7 times for All Japan last year, almost qualifying him as an active wrestler in the Dead Pool.
Jericho has 21 matches since the new year, and that includes them running a 3 week injury angle where he did not work.

Negro Casas is a pretty good answer to oldest full-time who can still go.

Apparently they got the titles because All Japan wanted them to be the 100th team to have the belts.

Had 2 matches in 2016. One was a tag teaming with Kendo KaShin against Dick Togo and NOSAWA. The other had the 74 year old defending his IWA championship against NOSAWA.

What is a 76 year old doing in the ring? There really should be something in place to stop that nonsense.

If that's how he wants to go, so be it.  In Japan, quite frankly, they don't care.  There won't be the backlash if he dies in the ring there that there would be here.  He can make his own decisions and clearly he wants to wrestle until the day he dies.  If he can still pop a crowd and get a company willing to book him, so be it.  Who should stop him?

I was giving Lawler's podcast a listen yesterday and he talks about how he still wrestles quite a bit on independent cards. So I looked up a video of him from last year, he's 67 and it's probably because he was never "ripped" but damn, for 67 he looks pretty good and is still decent in the ring..I know he's not "full time" now but I'd give him an honorable mention here..

Body-wise, it's amazing how he basically looks the same, which tells you something about how he looked in the '70s but also the type of shape he's kept himself in.  If it wasn't for the heart attack, WWE would still be using him probably.  But Lawler said recently that WWE has told him they will never clear him to wrestle even though their doctors haven't even checked him out.  They just said never again, regardless of his current health.

Yeah, but they sure don't mind them exploiting his heart attack on TV with Dolph, CM Punk, Paul Heyman, etc...

yeah, watching that match I posted, he's 66 in that and does a back body drop and a freakin' drop kick...he looks good...on that last podcast he said he'd really like to end his career like to have that real "Wrestlemania" moment where he got to wrestle a legit match at WM...I was laughing about that until I watched that video and why not, give him a short match against someone for next year, he crowd would pop..

He said he wanted to wrestle Ziggler to turn the heart attack into an angle.  He begged for a WM match for like 15 years and wound up getting Michael Cole and jobbing.  Sadly that's going to be as good as it gets.
