CWF was lucky to have Mitsu Yoshida working their rings in 1975 for several months. He was specifically sent by New Japan to Florida to train under Hiro Matsuda. Below is his CWF record as near complete as I believe is possible (Clawmaster, please add anything else you may have). Did he work any other territories in the US? I'm having no luck finding anything else.

"Did he work any other territories in the US?"

Yes he did. I'll have to look. I remember seeing the listings though.

Riki also came to the AWA to team with Mr Saito after Saito got out of jail. Only two matches at one AWA TV Taping in Las Vegas.
