Al, any idea who this Mr. Ito is? In the Hattiesburg listing for 1/5/1978, it lists a "Masao Ito", but he was in All-Japan during this time frame.
Not Al but...Same guy as Umanosuke Ueda. He was back in Japan under the Ueda name one week later according to Wrestling Data.
The Hattiesburg ad I have for 1/5/78 lists Mr Ito and not Masao Ito, so somewhere along the way something got transcribed incorrectly. As others who work with clippings know, it is virtually impossible to keep things/names straight all the time. Collaboration and groupthink can help solve many of the "who was this guy" questions that come up regularly.
