Hiromichi Fuyuki was born on May 11, 1960 in Tokyo, Japan.

Fuyuki would grow up as a wrestling fan and just after his 16th birthday in May 1976 would begin training to become one. After his high school graduation, he would join the old IWE promotion ran by Isao Yoshihara. He would make his debut four years later in May 4, 1980 against Tsutomu Yonemura. Just three months later though, the IWE promotion would close, and Fuyuki would move and make his All Japan Pro Wrestling debut a year later in August 1981.

Fuyuki would leave for what he called his first overseas expedition in November 1984, where he would wrestle in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and San Antonio, Texas. He would begin working under the name "Ricky Fuyuki" in these locations in honor of  Riki Choshu, who had been his childhood hero.

Fuyuki would make his return to All Japan Pro Wrestling in December 1985 where he would begin going under the name "Samson Fuyuki". Fuyuki would form an alliance with Genichiro Tenryu, as well as form a historic team with fellow All Japan wrestler Toshiaki Kawada, the team would go under the name "Footloose".

Fuyuki would marry a beautiful young lady by the name of Kaoru in November 1986, and the two would eventually have two young daughters together.

Footloose would win their first titles together in All Japan All Asian Tag Team Titles on Takashi Ishikawa & Mighty Inoue on March 9, 1988 in Yokohama. They would keep the titles for six months before losing them on September 9, 1988 against Shunji Takano & Shinichi Nakano.

Fuyuki & Kawada would win the titles back on September 15, 1988 in Tokyo. They would then start what would turn out to be a very memorable feud between the team of Doug Furnas Dan Kroffat, the Can-Am Express. The Express would defeat Footloose on June 5, 1989 for the All Asian Tag Titles. Footloose would come back, and win the titles right back on October 20, 1989 in Nagoya. It would be their third and final reign as the champions an would lose the titles for the final time to The Can-Am Express on March 2, 1990.

Footloose would officially come to an end on April 1990 as Kawada would form a team with friend Tiger Mask II. Fuyuki would team up with Yoshiaki Yatsu against Toshiaki Kawada & Tiger Mask II on May 14, 1990. Tiger Mask II during the match would take off his mask to reveal Mitsuharu Misawa who would pin Fuyuki in the match.

Fuyuki would then follow his mentor Tenryu and leave All Japan Pro Wrestling in July 1990 for the new  SWS promotion. Fuyuki would end up going back under his real name in SWS, but SWS would become a major flop and would only last until June 1992.

Tenryu would start another promotion in WAR, and Fuyuki would become the top heel for the promotion. Fuyuki would form an alliance with two young wrestlers by the name of Jado and Gedo. Fuyuki would take the two young wrestlers under his wing in early 1994 and called the group "Fuyuki-Gun" which translates into the Fuyuki Army. 

Fuyuki's first big match in WAR would be on January 14, 1994 at the Yokohama Bunka Gym where he would face off against WWF's Earthquake John Tenta with Tenta getting the pinfall over Fuyuki with the splash for the win.

Fuyuki-Gun would make their FMW debut on May 5, 1994 as apart of the WAR team at Kawasaki Stadium taking on the team of Big Titan, The Gladiator, and Ricky Fuji, but would lose after Gladiator would finish Gedo off with an Awesome Bomb.

Hiromichi Fuyuki would agree to a deal soon afterwards to wrestle in the EMLL promotion in Mexico, but would wrestle at WAR's June 6, 1994 Korakuen Hall show first. Fuyuki would team up with with Jado & Gedo to lose to Genichiro Tenryu, Kouki Kitahara, and Animal Hamiguchi in the main event before going to Mexico. Fuyuki would use his old name "Samson Fuyuki" while making his EMLL debut on June 10, 1994 at Arena Mexico in Mexico City, by teaming up with Emilio Charles, Jr. and Pierroth Jr. to defeat Vampiro Candianese, Ultimo Dragon, and Atlantis in a 2 out of 3 falls match after Fuyuki would pin Ultimo Dragon in the third and deciding fall to the match with a DDT. Fuyuki would get negative reviews for no selling chair shots delivered by Vampiro, but the two would begin a feud as Vampiro had also been working for WAR. 

Fuyuki would align himself with Negro Casas and Black Magic Norman Smiley while continuing his feud with Vampiro on June 12, 1994 at Arena Coliseo to again lose in his tag team match against Vampiro, Ultimo Dragon, and La Piera. Fuyuki would wrestle his final match in EMLL on June 24, 1994 at Arena Mexico in Mexico City to lose to Vampiro Candianese in the main event to end their feud, in what would be considered a sloppy match.

Fuyuki would come back Japan and team with Jado & Gedo to become the first WAR 6-Man champions after winning a tournament on June 30, 1994 in Sendai. Fuyuki, Jado, and Gedo would defeat the team of Hido, Hiroshi Itakura, and Yagushi in the first round. They would then defeat the team of Bret Como, Lion Heart Chris Jericho, and Dos Caras in the semi finals. They would then defeat the team of  Genichiro Tenryu & Animal Hamiguchi & Kouki Kitahara in the finals to win the tournament. 

Fuyuki, Jado, and Gedo would enter another 6 man tag team tournament for WAR without the titles being on the line on July 17, 1994 at the Tokyo Sumo Hall. Fuyuki, Jado, and Gedo would lose in the first round to Jinsei Shinzaki, John Tenta, and Ashura Hara. The team of Atsushi Onita, Genichiro Tenryu, and Bam Bam Bigelow would go on to win the tournament. Fuyuki, Jado and Gedo would ultimately drop the titles on August 26, 1994 at the Yokohama Bunka Gym to Bob Backlund & The Warlord & Scott Putski. They would receive a rematch quickly, and win back the WAR 6 Man Tag Team Titles on September 1, 1994 in Saku. 

Hiromichi Fuyuki would face Genichiro Tenryu on September 29, 1994 at the Tokyo East 21 Hall Hotel, in a match where if Fuyuki were to lose then Jado & Gedo would be forced to cut their hair, or Fuyuki would have to ride down the Sumida River. Even with Kendo Nagasaki attacking Tenryu before the match, and cutting Tenryu up, Tenryu would still manage to make a come back, and pin Fuyuki with a Powerbomb. Afterwards, Tenryu would grab the mic and announce that either Fuyuki should ride down the Sumida River, or Jado and Gedo should get their head shaves, but would then leave without any enforcing. Fuyuki, Jado, and Gedo would then also leave to the back, without any enforcement to the stipulations. The crowd, not knowing what was going on, would stay in their seats for 20 minutes before realizing that they were about to be screwed of the stipulation. The crowd would begin chanting for a refund, and would start a riot before Fuyuki, Jado and Gedo would be force to go back out there. Not being prepared to actually stick with the stipulation, they would only bring scissors to the ring, and Fuyuki would be force to attempt to cut as much hair of Jado and Gedo's that he possibly could with scissors. 

Fuyuki would team up with Jado & Gedo to successfully defend their WAR 6 Man Tag Team Titles on November 8, 1994 at Korakuen Hall to defeat the team of Genichiro Tenryu, Animal Hamiguchi, and Kouki Kitahara when Fuyuki would pin Kitahara in Fuyuki's longest match of his career up to that point as it would take 42 minutes, 56 seconds to get the victory for the title defense.

Fuyuki would make his Tokyo Dome debut on January 4, 1996 for New Japan as would lose in a grudge match to former friend Yoji Anjo in a terrible match. 

Fuyuki-gun would wrestle their last match in WAR in October 1996, before officially leaving and become freelancers for such promotions as FMW, Big Japan, and IWA Japan. Fuyuki would also begin to go under a shorter version of his real name for his ring in name in "Kodo Fuyuki."

Fuyuki-gun would make their debut in FMW on February 19, 1997 at Korakuen Hall, defeating the W*ING team of W*ING Kanemura, Hideki Hosaka, and Dragon Winger after Fuyuki would hit a Charging Lariat on Winger to score the victory. They would then defeat the W*ING team once again, this time consisting of W*ING Kanemura, Hido, and Hideki Hosaka on March 14, 1997 at the Sapporo Nakajima Sports Center, after Fuyuki would deliver a Charging Lariat to Hosaka to score the victory. 

Kodo Fuyuki would appear backstage on March 28, 1997 at Korakuen Hall, after Atsushi Onita had been attacked by the Funk Masters of Wrestling, Kodo Fuyuki would appear with a smile on his face and begin insulting the bruised and beaten hardcore legend. This would begin the feud of Atsushi Onita and Kodo Fuyuki that would turn into legitimate between the two that would go on for the next 5 years.

Fuyuki-gun would participate at FMW's Yokohama Arena show on April 29, 1997, but would end up losing to Hisakatsu Oya & The Headhunters after Headhunter A would deliver a Moonsault to Gedo to score the victory for the Funk Masters of Wrestling.

Kodo Fuyuki would suffer his most humiliating loss to Shark Tsuchiya in FMW in July 1997 in Fukouka in a tag match after The Headhunters would help interfere to help Shark win. Due to the humiliating loss, Fuyuki would challenge Terry Funk for the FMW Kawasaki Stadium on September 28, 1997 in a match where if Fuyuki loss, he would never wrestle for FMW again. Fuyuki would loss to the legendary Terry Funk at Kawasaki Stadium due to help from The Headhunters and would be force to leave FMW. Fuyuki, Jado, and Gedo would leave FMW, but soon return once again just two months later in November 1997.

Fuyuki, Jado, and Gedo would begin to feud with Atsushi Onita's ZEN team and would defeat the team of The Great Nita, Yukihiro Kanemura, and Hido on December 5, 1997 at Korakuen Hall when Fuyuki despite being misted earlier in the match by Nita would hit a charging lariat on Hido. 

Fuyuki-gun's hatred for Onita and ZEN would continue, but on December 22, 1997 at Korakuen Hall. FMW would change forever. Mr. Gannosuke, Yukihiro Kanemura, and Hido sick of Onita hogging all the fame in ZEN and putting himself in the main events, as well as being defeated by Hayabusa in a War Games 6 Man match would cause the three to turn on their ZEN leader and attack him. Tying him up to the cage and slapping him around until Koji Nakagawa and the rest of ZEN would make the save for Onita. 

Gannosuke, Kanemura, and Hido would form their own freelance group until ZEN would hold its first show on January 7, 1998 at Korakuen Hall. After losing to the ZEN team of Atsushi Onita, Koji Nakagawa, and Tetsuhiro Kuroda in the main event, the team of Gannosuke, Kanemura, and Hido would begin to attack them afterwards, but would also get help from Kodo Fuyuki and Jado. After the beating, the two factions would meet in a locker room, where Kanemura would announce the merger of the freelance team of Gannosuke, Kanemura, Hido and Fuyuki-gun to form Team No Respect.

While Team No Respect became the most heel group in FMW, and would be feuding with Atsushi Onita's ZEN group and Hayabusa's FMW group. Kodo Fuyuki would begin to gain power backstage. Fuyuki who was friends with all the wrestlers backstage as well as Shoichi Arai would begin to maneuver himself politically and slowly gain power as many of the FMW wrestlers felt that Atsushi Onita's hardcore vision of FMW had been passé as just about all of the FMW wrestlers disliked Onita anyway for how he acted and treated much of them. 

Kodo Fuyuki would score a huge victory on February 19, 1998 at Korakuen Hall, by defeating Hayabusa in a Lumberjack match. With the rest of Team No Respect's help of attacking Hayabusa, Fuyuki would manage to tear off Hayabusa's mask, as well as cut Hayabusa extremely deep, and finally finish off Hayabusa with the Charging Lariat to win their first ever match against one another. FMW Referee Go Ito would also align with Team No Respect during the show.

Kodo Fuyuki would team with Gedo on March 17, 1998 at Korakuen Hall to face Atsushi Onita & Koji Nakagawa, to mock Onita, Fuyuki would come out to Onita's old "White Thing" theme, as well as Onita's symbolized bandages all over his body, as well as Onita's water bottle and be introduced as Atsushi Onita, with Onita attacking Fuyuki right away to start the match. Fuyuki would pin Nakagawa with Onita's Fire Thunder Powerbomb to setup their April 30, 1998 Yokohama Bunka Gym match. 

Kodo Fuyuki would score the biggest win of his career on April 30, 1998 at the Yokohama Bunka Gym, as he would defeat Atsushi Onita with help from Team No Respect for a majority of the match before finishing Onita with the charging lariat. Team No Respect would parade over Onita, but Onita would wake up and manage to get revenge on Team No Respect manager Go Ito. Mr. Gannosuke would also be injured at the show as he would drop the FMW Double Titles to Hayabusa, and Kodo Fuyuki would soon become the Team No Respect leader. 

Fuyuki along with fellow Team No Respect member Yukihiro Kanemura would form an official tag team name "The New Footloose" and would win the FMW Brass Knuckles Tag Team Titles from Hayabusa & Masato Tanaka on May 27, 1998 in Fukouka after Kanemura would rollup Tanaka for the pin. During the match, Tanaka and Fuyuki would have an intense exchange between one another as their dislike for each other would slowly grow before Masato Tanaka would leave FMW for the rest of 1998 to compete in ECW.

Kodo Fuyuki & Yukihiro Kanemura would defend their FMW Brass Knuckles Tag Team Titles on May 31, 1998 in Ishikawa, against Atsushi Onita & Koji Nakagawa, but as Go Ito would head to the ring and bring a crutch, looking to help Fuyuki & Kanemura out, Nakagawa would grab the crutch away from Go Ito. But as Atsushi Onita was attempting to Thunder Fire Powerbomb Fuyuki, Nakagawa would smash the crutch over the back of Onita. Koji Nakagawa would become the newest member of Team No Respect, as Fuyuki would deliver a Charging Lariat on Onita to score another pinfall victory over Onita. 

Kodo Fuyuki, Koji Nakagawa, and Yukihiro Kanemura would become the FMW 6 Man Street Fight Tag Team Titles on June 1, 1998 in Osaka, after defeating the team of Hayabusa, Masato Tanaka, and Hisakatsu Oya for the vacant titles after Nakagawa would roll up Tanaka for the victory. Team No Respect would vacate the titles, but win them back once again on June 28, 1998 after defeating the team of Hayabusa, Hisakatsu Oya, and Ricky Fuji after Fuyuki would deliver a Charging Lariat on Ricky Fuji.

Hayabusa and new partner Daisuke Ikeda of the Battlarts' promotion would win the FMW Brass Knuckles Tag Team Titles on October 26, 1998 in Chiba after Ikeda would knock out Kanemura with a kick to the head for the titles. 

Kodo Fuyuki would continue to gain power backstage as he was now apart of the creative staff in FMW, just behind long time booker Go Ito in decision makings. Go Ito who had been an Onita protégée and friend of Onita since the beginning of FMW would soon see his power being lost to Fuyuki. Shoichi Arai would be sold on Fuyuki's idea of turning FMW into more of a "Entertainment Pro Wrestling" style with the wrestlers working more wrestling based matches than the hardcore style, and the street fight style. Atsushi Onita seeing the writing on the wall would decide to leave FMW, the promotion he had started for good on November 20, 1998. Onita would defeat long time rival Mr. Pogo in a horrible match, and Kodo Fuyuki would defeat Hayabusa for the FMW Double Titles at the same show at the Yokohama Bunka Gym in by far the best match of the show, as well as the best singles match Fuyuki had ever been apart of. At the show, through Fuyuki's advice, Shoichi Arai would retire the FMW 6 Man Street Fight Tag Team Titles and give Onita a lifetime title of the belts as a going well present. After winning the FMW Double Titles, Fuyuki would give a speech and state how ugly both the FMW Brass Knuckles Heavyweight Title and FMW Independent Heavyweight Title, and that he hoped to make a new belt in the upcoming year to represent FMW. Mr. Gannosuke would return on the show as well, but would distance himself from Team No Respect and would later form his own group. Shoichi Arai was now officially sold on Fuyuki's idea of Fuyuki leading Team No Respect against Hayabusa, the ace of FMW as the lead babyface. 

FMW would hold a 16 man tournament called "Over the Top" Tournament, which would be a single elimination tournament to see who would become the number 1 contender for Fuyuki's FMW Double Titles. Fuyuki would place himself in the tournament, and if he won, he would get to face whoever he wanted on March 19, 1999. Fuyuki would lose in the first round to Hisakatsu Oya on December 9, 1998 in Osaka. 

Mr. Gannosuke would win the Over the Top Tournament defeating Hisakatsu Oya in the finals on January 5, 1999 at Korakuen Hall to give him a shot at Fuyuki's Double Titles on March 19th. Oya, would still get a shot at the FMW Double Titles the next day, but would lose the match for Fuyuki's first successful title defense on January 6, 1999 at Korakuen Hall.

Mr. Gannosuke would form his own group to oppose Fuyuki's TNR and Hayabusa's FMW called "The Gannosuke Outlaws", along with Hisakatsu Oya, Hideki Hosaka, and Super Leather. TNR and FMW would group together to battle Gannosuke's group and Fuyuki would team with Hayabusa in the FMW Tag Team Tournament to determine the new FMW Brass Knuckles Tag Team Champions. 

Kodo Fuyuki would manage to defeat Mr. Gannosuke on March 19, 1999 at the Sapporo Nakajima Sports Center after finish Gannosuke off with a table shot. Fuyuki and Hayabusa would then form their team for the FMW Brass Knuckles Tag Team Titles and would defeat every team besides Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda who would go to time limit draw with them on March 29, 1999 at Korakuen Hall. This would place Fuyuki & Hayabusa in the finals for the Tag Titles. 

Fuyuki & Hayabusa would lose in the finals to Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda on May 3, 1999 in Nagoya to the team of Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda after Tanaka would knock Fuyuki out with a roaring elbow for the pinfall loss. After the match, Hayabusa would pour a bucket of water on Fuyuki to wake him up. It would wake Fuyuki up and cause him to go after Hayabusa as they would have to be held apart from each other as their Tag Team was officially over.

Fuyuki's next FMW Double Titles shot on May 5, 1999 at the Yokohama Bunka Gym would be his last as he would wait for the winner of the pinfall in the match between Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda against Hayabusa & Jinsei Shinzaki. Kuroda would score the upset of his career by pinning Hayabusa in his match with a lariat to face Fuyuki for the FMW Double Titles. But before the match, Fuyuki would come out with his friends, the entire Team No Respect. Mr. Gannosuke, Yukihiro Kanemura, Koji Nakagawa, Jado, Gedo, and Hido would all accompany Fuyuki to the ring for his match and interfere like crazy. Fuyuki would cut Kuroda open increasingly as Fuyuki would finally finish Kuroda off with a lariat for his fifth and last Double Titles defense. 

Fuyuki would announce on May 18, 1999 that he was forfeiting the FMW Double Titles as well as splitting them up as he would give Mr. Gannosuke the FMW Independent Heavyweight Title, and Yukihiro Kanemura the FMW Brass Knuckles Heavyweight Title, as well as announced that he was now officially the FMW Commissioner verified by FMW President Shoichi Arai.

Fuyuki's first actions as Commissioner would be that Masato Tanaka would be declared Public Enemy # 1 in FMW and that if he were to lose any match in FMW from now on, he would be fired from FMW. He would also call out Hayabusa and tell him that he did not want any super heroes in his FMW, and that he was forcing Hayabusa to take off his mask and become Eiji Ezaki from now on. 

While Fuyuki's act as Commissioner was all for the camera, behind the camera it almost the same as Fuyuki was given full control of FMW as FMW Booker Go Ito was fired in the Summer of 1999 for Fuyuki to completely be given full control of FMW. 

Fuyuki would continue his feud with Masato Tanaka and would even make himself referee in a bout with Masato Tanaka challenging for the FMW Independent Championship against Mr. Gannosuke on August 20, 1999 at Korakuen Hall. In what would turn out to be the best match of the year for FMW in 1999, Tanaka would attempt a charging elbow at Gannosuke in which Gannosuke would move out of the way causing Tanaka to hit Fuyuki with the elbow and knock him out to end the bias of Fuyuki that had gone on during the entire match. Tanaka would hit a Diamond Dust on Gannosuke and with Kodo Fuyuki knocked out, a second referee would run to the ring and make the count for the Masato Tanaka victory. Days later on August 25, 1999 at the Sapporo Nakajima Sports Center, Kodo Fuyuki would present Hayabusa with flowers due to the Hayabusa gimmick having to be retired. But Fuyuki would sucker kick Hayabusa and begin hitting him with the flowers as the entire Team No Respect would help strip Hayabusa of his mask and clothes and tie his neck around a dog collar. Eiji Ezaki would announce that he would not go under his real name, but that he would become H.

H would begin to feud with Mr. Gannosuke who began wearing a mask of his own and calling himself Hayabusa, which Fuyuki stated that he was the real Hayabusa for FMW. Fuyuki would also declare the FMW Brass Knuckles Heavyweight Title and the FMW Independent Heavyweight Title no longer active like he had wished a year ago, as he would replace them with his own WEW World Title and declare himself the first ever WEW World Champion.

Fuyuki would continue his feud with Masato Tanaka leading up to the FMW November 23, 1999 Yokohama Arena show. Their match would be a Loser Leaves FMW, 15,000 Volt Electrified Cage Death Match for the WEW World Title. Both Fuyuki and Tanaka would be sent into the cage causing explosions to go off. Fuyuki would then spend a large amount of the match keeping Tanaka down while taking off the ropes to the ring and then using them to choke him out. Masato Tanaka would eventually though overcome Fuyuki and manage to finish Fuyuki off once and for good with a Roaring Elbow knocking Fuyuki out and score the pinfall victory. Fuyuki would then be led upstage where he would dropped into a garbage truck and taken off by Masato Tanaka. Team No Respect would take an incredible hit at the show as they would lose Fuyuki as their leader as well Mr. Gannosuke who would align himself with H after the show.

Fuyuki would be fired by FMW as FMW Commissioner and in the mean time, Fuyuki would take a break for a month and would defeat Kyoko Inoue inside a Steel Cage on December 25, 1999 at the Neo Ladies show at the Komazawa Olympic Gym.

Kodo Fuyuki would return to FMW as apart of his own ECW Japan team along with Kyoko Inoue, Pitbull # 2, and Balls Mahoney to defeat the team of H, Mr. Gannosuke Hisakatsu Oya, Ricky Fuji in a bloody match after Fuyuki would pin Ricky Fuji in his return as Fuyuki's claim for coming back that he was not apart of FMW, but apart of ECW Japan. Fuyuki & Kyoko Inoue would defeat the team of H & Mr. Gannosuke on February 25, 2000 at Korakuen Hall after Fuyuki would pin Gannosuke to give ECW Japan the WEW Tag Team Championship.

The ECW Japan angle would end up becoming a failure, and Fuyuki would lose a match to H on April 4, 2000 in Sapporo in a match where he stated earlier he would retire if he lost. But due to the loss, he would be overthrown by Masato Tanaka and Masato Tanaka would become leader of ECW Japan for the next month before it would die. 

Fuyuki would announce that he would retire on May 5, 2000 at the Komazawa Olympic Indoor Gym, but before his scheduled WEW World Title match against Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Fuyuki would announce that what he had stated about retiring was a lie, as he had stated it on April 1st and that it was an April Fool's Joke.  Fuyuki would go on for the second straight year to defeat Tetsuhiro Kuroda, this time to recapture his WEW World Title. After his title win, Fuyuki would make a challenge to his former teacher and friend Genichiro Tenryu for a match in the near future. 

With Team No Respect on its last legs, Fuyuki would form Shin Fuyuki-gun with Mr. Gannosuke, GOEMON, Kyoko Inoue, Hideki Hosaka, Yoshinori Sasaki, Chocoball Mukai, Shoichi Arai, and eventually Kintaro Kanemura by his side.

During the summer of 2000, H had officially once again became Hayabusa and this time Hayabusa would want a shot at Fuyuki's WEW World Title. Hayabusa would defeat Mr. Gannosuke on August 28, 2000 to grant him a shot at the WEW World Title on September 26, 2000 at Korakuen Hall. But first, they would wrestle in a 15,000 Volt Electrified Cage Death Match, which Hayabusa would win on September 21, 2000 after finishing Fuyuki had taken several explosion shots and Hayabusa pinning him with a Firebird Splash.

Fuyuki would wrestle Hayabusa on September 26, 2000 in what both wrestlers would say was their hardest match, but one of their best. A 60 minute Iron Man Match match, what proved to be extremely hard for both wrestler, but both would put on an incredible performances to make the match a very good one. Fuyuki who was extremely tired during the match manage to do something he had always wanted to do and go 60 minutes as the match would end up being a Draw after both wrestlers had scored 3 wins against each other a piece. Fuyuki and Hayabusa would show their respect for one another and Fuyuki would promise another shot at the WEW World Title. 

Hayabusa's shot for the WEW World Title would come against Kodo Fuyuki in a rematch of both their Iron Man match as well as their 11/20/98 match at the Yokohama Bunka Gym, this time at the same building on November 12, 2000. Just like their last Yokohama Bunka Gym match, Fuyuki would finish Hayabusa off with a Charging Lariat for the pinfall. Hayabusa would take 6 months due to double reconstructive elbow surgery after the match, but not before being attacked by Tetsuhiro Kuroda who declared himself the new ace of FMW. 

Kuroda would soon turn full heel on November 28, 2000 after attacking team mate and friend Masato Tanaka and joining Kodo Fuyuki's Shin Fuyuki-gun. Fuyuki & Kuroda would capture the WEW Tag Team Championship on December 23, 2000 as they would both make their Pro Wrestling NOAH debut and defeat the team of Tamon Honda & Naomichi Marufuji at the show. 

Fuyuki and Kuroda would lose the WEW Tag Team Titles to Masato Tanaka & Gedo on January 7, 2001 at Korakuen Hall as Kuroda would turn on Fuyuki and cause him to be pinned by his former student Gedo during the match. Kuroda along with Azusa Kudo, Shinjuku Shark, and Naohiko Yamazaki would tie Fuyuki up and would put Kyoko Inoue's bra over him as Kuroda had officially left Fuyuki to form "Team Kuroda". Kuroda would issue a challenge to Kodo Fuyuki for their January 16, 2001 Korakuen Hall match. If Kuroda were to lose, then Fuyuki would have to retire. But if Fuyuki were to lose, he would have to divorce his wife Kaoru of 15 years. Fuyuki would go on to defeat Kuroda with a Samson Clutch to win the match, but afterwards Team Kuroda would attack Fuyuki and beat him to a bloody pulp in a body bag until GOEMON & Onryo would make the save for Fuyuki. Fuyuki would go on to ignore Kuroda's stipulation stating he would never retire, and never agreed to those rules.

Fuyuki would lose his WEW World Title after a near 11 month reign on April 1, 2001 at Korakuen Hall to Tetsuhiro Kuroda who had help from new Team Kuroda member Mr. Gannosuke and after the interference, Kuroda would defeat Fuyuki for the after a Gannosuke Clutch. Fuyuki would then move on to finally getting a match with Genichiro Tenryu, who he had offered a challenge to a year before. 

Fuyuki would get the match against Genichiro Tenryu on May 5, 2001at Kawasaki Stadium, one year after challenging him to a match. Tenryu would manage to defeat Fuyuki, and afterwards the two would reunite as friends. 

Fuyuki would then announce on June 8, 2001 about his new plans of becoming the FMW owner. Fuyuki would announce that he had partnered himself with Tokyo Pop and that they planned on taking over FMW. Mr. Gannosuke, Kintaro Kanemura, Mammoth Sasaki, Chocoball Mukai, and Shinjuku Shark would all side with Fuyuki as Hayabusa, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, GOEMON, Onryo, Hisakatsu Oya, Ricky Fuji, Azusa Kudo, Naohiko Yamazaki, and Emi Motokawa sided with Shoichi Arai. Hayabusa would announce that he owned 5% of FMW, with Shoichi Arai owning 48% of FMW, and Tokyo Pop owning 47%.

Kodo Fuyuki would have his first match ever against Shoichi Arai on August 3, 2001 at Korakuen Hall, but the match would be stopped after Azusa Kudo who had attempted to change himself back to a man, had interference due to a spider's DNA getting inside of him, having him become Biomonster DNA. DNA would interfere and attack Fuyuki to set up their match on August 11, 2001.

Kodo Fuyuki would be slaughtered by Biomonster DNA in just minutes at the August 11, 2001 Komazawa Olympic Gym, causing him to be sprayed stretcher out. Tokyo Pop would manage to take over FMW as Mr. Gannosuke would go on to defeat Tetsuhiro Kuroda, and Kintaro Kanemura would win the final siding match to win Hayabusa's 5% property of FMW as well as the WEW World Championship. Fuyuki would manage to get revenge on Biomonster DNA and hand him his first defeat on October 9, 2001 at Korakuen Hall.

FMW would take a turn for the worse on October 22, 2001 at Hayabusa would become paralyzed after slipping on the middle rope after attempted Asai Moonsault against Mammoth Sasaki. The FMW ace would be stretcher off to the hospital where he would become deathly ill in the months to follow.

Kodo Fuyuki would return to All Japan for the first time in over 11 years on October 27, 2001 at the Nippon Budokan Hall to face his former Footloose tag team partner Toshiaki Kawada in a All Japan vs. WAR match. Fuyuki would give Kawada all he had, but Kawada would end up finishing him off for the pinfall victory over former friend.

Kodo Fuyuki would bring in his WAR friends to FMW to battle FMW in what would turn out to be the last heated feud in FMW history. Fuyuki would bring in Arashi and Kouki Kitahara on November 5, 2001 at Korakuen Hall as the team would defeat the FMW team of Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Hisakatsu Oya, and Ricky Fuji after Fuyuki pinned Ricky. Afterwards, Fuyuki announced the man that would save FMW while Hayabusa remained out of action, and announced Garuda who would turn on Fuyuki and deliver him a 450 Firebird Splash.

Kodo Fuyuki would team with WAR friend Genichiro Tenryu on November 23, 2001 at the Yokohama Bunka Gym to defeat the team of Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Garuda after Fuyuki would finish Garuda off with a charging lariat. 

Fuyuki & Tenryu would then participate in the All Japan Real World Tag Team Tournament but would start off on a bad start as the two would accidentally hit each other in a match on November 24, 2001 at Korakuen Hall against The Harris Brothers. Tenryu would leave Fuyuki for dead, and Fuyuki would get pinned by The H Bomb. 

Tenryu & Fuyuki would regroup and go on to make it to finals of the Tag Team Tournament, but would lose to the team of Keiji Muto & Taiyo Kea after Muto would pin Fuyuki on December 7, 2001.

Fuyuki would once again team with his WAR alliance of Genichiro Tenryu, Arashi, and Kouki Kitahara against the FMW team of Kintaro Kanemura, Mr. Gannosuke, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, and Mammoth Sasaki. Gannosuke would score the first pinfall of his career against Fuyuki after a Gannosuke Clutch on December 9, 2001 at Korakuen Hall for FMW to officially become the victors of the 7 year feud between FMW and WAR.

Kodo Fuyuki going into 2002 knew what was going to happen. FMW would not last very much longer. Fuyuki would align himself with American wrestlers of the likes of The Sandman, Balls Mahoney, and Vic Grimes to do war with FMW. Just like ECW Japan, it bombed. This time Fuyuki knew it would, and he manage to book himself into matches where he would defeat Kintaro Kanemura for the WEW World Title on January 6, 2002 and the WEW Tag Team Titles with The Sandman after defeating the team of Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Sabu after Fuyuki pinned Kuroda on February 4, 2002  in what would turn out to be the last match in the promotions history.

Mr. Gannosuke would suffer a severe injury after breaking his foot taking a big splash through a table by Vic Grimes off the top turnbuckle, and Gannosuke not managing to move his foot away in time, causing him to break his foot. With Hayabusa already paralyzed, Mr. Gannosuke out of action for months, and FMW now in 2 million dollars in debt, the wrestlers would find out through their checks bouncing that FMW declared bankruptcy on February 15, 2002, officially ending the promotion of 12 years.

Shoichi Arai would go into hiding after owing money to the wrestlers as well as the Japanese Yakuza, and Fuyuki would pick up the announced FMW shows with the FMW roster and promote the shows under the name "Fuyuki Army Promotion".

At Fuyuki's first Fuyuki Army Promotion on March 10, 2002 at Korakuen Hall, Fuyuki would give FMW a 10 bell salute and afterwards "Wild Thing" would play and Atsushi Onita would appear in the same ring against Atsushi Onita for the first time in over four years. Atsushi Onita would tell the crowd how Fuyuki and FMW announcer Kichisuke Nakamura had embezzled money from FMW and kept the money all to themselves before declaring bankruptcy. Onita would challenge Fuyuki to a match for the May 5, 2002 Kawasaki Stadium Show. The match would never take place. Fuyuki though would announce that the show would be the debut of his new promotion, WEW.

Kodo Fuyuki would get a match that he had been pushing for since 1998 as he would take on Pro Wrestling NOAH's Mitsuharu Misawa on April 7, 2002 at the Differ Ariake Coliseum. Misawa would defeat Fuyuki even after taking a table splash from Kanemura. After the match, Fuyuki would bow to the crowd.

Kodo Fuyuki would team up with Kintaro Kanemura & Chocoball Mukai to take on Atsushi Onita, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, and Ricky Fuji on April 9, 2002 at Korakuen Hall in what would the only match where Fuyuki and Onita would face off against one another. Onita would win the match after pinning Chocoball Mukai with a Thunder Fire Powerbomb. After the match, Kodo Fuyuki would announce to the crowd that he intestinal cancer and would be retiring on April 14, 2002 on a show put on by Pro Wrestling. The cancer had been discovered on April 5, 2002 after Fuyuki he noticed that he had lost 25 pounds.

Kodo Fuyuki would wrestle his retirement match on April 14, 2002 for Pro Wrestling NOAH and would be accompanied by Kintaro Kanemura, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Kyoko Inoue, Shinjuku Shark, and Chocoball Mukai. With yellow streamers flying, Kodo Fuyuki would team with Mitsuharu Misawa and Yoshinari Ogawa to defeat the team of Akira Taue, Masao Inoue, and Tsuyoshi Kikuchi after Fuyuki would finish off Kikuchi with his signature lariat. After the match, wrestlers from all over Japan including Jado and Gedo, his wife Kaoru, and his two young daughters would commemorate Fuyuki for his 22 years in professional wrestling. Kodo Fuyuki would be given a 10 bell salute with the ring being covered in yellow streamers. 

Kodo Fuyuki would have a seven hour operation on April 18, 2002 to remove the cancer and part of his intestine. Kintaro Kanemura and Kaoru Fuyuki would wait patiently as Kanemura was seemingly nervous the entire time, as the surgery was not expected to take so long, but due to Fuyuki's abnormally large intestines, it would become more difficult than expected. Fuyuki would stay into the hospital until May 5, 2002 where he take a limo to Kawasaki Stadium to watch his WEW promotion debut in front of over 16,000 fans. Another 10 bell salute would take place for Fuyuki, with again yellow streamers being thrown into the ring.

Fuyuki was in high spirits, and seemed to be doing better until May 16, 2002 when Fuyuki would get word that FMW owner Shoichi Arai had committed suicide after hanging himself in a Tokyo park. After Fuyuki heard the news he would have a panic attack and be rushed to the hospital once again. Arai who had feared for his life and had an insurance policy in which his ex wife and children would be financially secured with him dead. 

Kodo Fuyuki would check out of the hospital and hold a public mourning for Shoichi Arai on May 27, 2002 which allowed friends and workers to pay their last respects to the late Shoichi Arai. Masato Tanaka, Hideki Hosaka, Shark Tsuchiya, Megumi Kudo, Kaori Nakayama, among others would attend.

Fuyuki would run WEW like FMW towards the end, but with more of a Independent feel. Fuyuki would also being going up against Hayabusa's new promotion WMF which would include the other half of the wrestlers that did not follow Fuyuki to WEW, as well as Tetsuhiro Kuroda who as a result would be handcuffed  and tied up by a dog collar on August 28, 2002 for working with FMW. Fuyuki would also try to get revenge on Kuroda on September 14, 2002 by pouring sour beans on Kuroda, but Kuroda would counter and poor the beans all over Fuyuki. 

Fuyuki would be revive his rivalry with Masato Tanaka through Kintaro Kanemura who had knocked him out with a roaring elbow leaving him to be taken off the hospital due to injuries on November 2, 2002. Fuyuki would promote for the last time at the Yokohama Bunka Gym on November 4, 2002, the same building he had defeated Atsushi Onita and won the FMW Double Titles from Hayabusa as he would he would watch Kintaro Kanemura defend the WEW World Title against Masato Tanaka.

Kodo Fuyuki would then be given word on November 27, 2002  that the cancer had spread to his liver and that he only had one year left to live. Kodo Fuyuki showed the medical reports to Misawa who gave him the okay to have one more last match, this time against Shinya Hashimoto on May 5, 2003 at Kawasaki Stadium. Fuyuki's feud with Hashimoto would begin on December 29, 2002 at Korakuen Hall after Hashimoto would easily defeat Kanemura and Fuyuki would have to be held back by his WEW wrestlers.

Kodo Fuyuki knowing about his soon death would quickly write his own autobiography giving his side of the story about FMW's ending, as well as his fight with cancer, and his life as a professional wrestler the last 23 years.

Kodo Fuyuki would team with Kintaro Kanemura and Tetsuhiro Kuroda against Shinya Hashimoto and Tengu Kaiser on February 2, 2003 in what technically would be his last match ever, although all he would be able to do was hit Hashimoto with a charging lariat before going down due to his poor state of health. 

Kodo Fuyuki would find out on February 28, 2003 that the cancer has spread to his bowels and his death would be soon. He would no longer be able to eat because of the cancer and would be only surviving through a liquid diet. 

Despite losing another 45 pounds due to the cancer, he would shoot himself up with pain killers and leave the hospital to attend the WEW March 11, 2003 Korakuen Hall show where he would come to the ring with Go Ito. Fuyuki would announce that Go Ito would be put in charge of WEW after his death, even though Fuyuki was the man that had caused Go Ito's firing 4 years earlier in FMW. Shinya Hashimoto would appear as the two would make a match for Kawasaki Stadium on May 5, 2003 official. Kintaro Kanemura, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Chocoball Mukai, and Shinjuku Shark would all help Fuyuki out of the ring to a loud "Fuyuki" chant, as it was obvious, Fuyuki was on his last days.

Hiromichi "Kodo" Fuyuki would die of cancer at 6:50 PM in a Yokohama Hospital on March 19, 2003. He was 42. Surrounded by him at the time of his death was his wife Kaoru, his two daughters, Kintaro Kanemura, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Chocoball Mukai, and Shinjuku Shark. Just hours before his death, knowing he would not last the night, his wife Kaoru made the decision to call the newspapers and Japanese magazines to  take pictures of him and the two together before he would die. 

Many promotions in Japan would hold a 10 bell salute in memory of Hiromichi "Kodo" Fuyuki. From All Japan Pro Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling,  Pro Wrestling NOAH, IWA Japan, DDT, and his own WEW promotion. 

A vigil would be held on March 22, 2003 in Yokohama for friends, family, and fans to all say goodbye to Kodo Fuyuki. 800 fans would attend while a big screen TV would be playing Kodo Fuyuki's best matches and "Shoot It '95" playing in the background. Wrestlers of the likes of Kintaro Kanemura, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Chocoball Mukai, Shinjuku Shark, Hido, UZ, Shinya Hashimoto, Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Yoshinari Ogawa, Toshiaki Kawada, Hayabusa, Jado, Gedo, Masato Tanaka, Shinjiro Otani, Mr. Gannosuke, Mammoth Sasaki, Koji Nakagawa, Takashi Sasaki, TAKA Michinoku, Masahiro Chono, Tatsuhito Takaiwa,  Sanshiro Takagi, Ricky Fuji, Flying Kid Ichihara, Junji Tanaka, and Genichiro Tenryu and other wrestling personalities such as Go Ito, Motoko Baba, and long time Fuyuki friend and Kichisuke Nakamura would attend the vigil to say one last goodbye to Hiromichi Fuyuki.

Kodo Fuyuki's funeral would take place on March 23, 2003 in Yokohama with another 800 fans attending as Fuyuki's body would be placed in a coffin and Kaoru Fuyuki along with her two children would give heart felt goodbyes to their husband and fathers. The likes of Kensuke Sasaki, Tomohiro Ishii, Tarzan Goto, the entire Zero One and WEW rosters would all attend with the likes of Masato Tanaka breaking down in tears during the service. Kodo Fuyuki's coffin would be placed in a Hearst as Kichisuke Nakamura would one last time introduce 'Hiromichi "Macho Body" Fuyuki" to the crowd as everyone would throw yellow streamers as the Hearst took off with the body of Kodo Fuyuki.

Kintaro Kanemura would take the place of Kodo Fuyuki against Shinya Hashimoto in the Kodo Fuyuki Memorial May 5, 2003 Kawasaki Stadium show in front of over 18,000 fans in a Exploding Barbwire Death Match. Before the match, Kaoru Fuyuki holding a box of the created ashes of Fuyuki along with the WEW roster would lead every wrestler from many different promotions to gather around ringside to honor to Kodo Fuyuki with a 10 bell salute. Kintaro Kanemura would represent Fuyuki in the main event by wearing Fuyuki's purple robe. Before the match, Kaoru Fuyuki would hand Shinya Hashimoto the box of Kodo Fuyuki's cremated ashes and would send himself into the Exploding Barbwire causing some of the ashes to fly out onto the ring. Kintaro Kanemura would then take the box and send himself into the Exploding Barbwire sending more of Fuyuki's on to the ring before the match as well. Shinya Hashimoto would end up defeating Kanemura with a Brainbuster. After the match, the entire WEW roster would get in the ring as Kanemura would state despite his loss that he hope he made his friend, Kodo Fuyuki proud of his fighting spirit. 

Since the death of Kodo Fuyuki, WEW went back to the name of the Fuyuki Army Promotion and would become funded by Kaoru Fuyuki, with Go Ito as the Producer and booker of the shows. The promotion would begin a working agreement with WMF and would use street fights and death matches as the main attraction, much like the old FMW style that Fuyuki helped change to an Entertainment style as booker. 

The Fuyuki Army Promotion would hold a one year memorial show for Kodo Fuyuki on March 19, 2004 at Korakuen Hall, with every wrestler on the card showing their respect to Kodo Fuyuki by bringing a yellow flower into the ring. After Shinya Hashimoto would defeat Tetsuhiro Kuroda in the main event of the show, the entire roster would come to the ring to thank the fans and wrestlers for their love and support throughout the past year, but would announce that the Fuyuki Army Promotion would close down after May 5, 2004 at the Kawasaki Stadium.

The Fuyuki Army Promotion would hold their last show on May 5, 2004 at Kawasaki Stadium, with Kintaro Kanemura & Hido defeating Riki Choshu & Tomohiro Ishii in the main event when Kanemura would pin Ishii with one of Fuyuki's favorite finishers, the Samson Clutch for the win in memory of Kodo Fuyuki.

Hiromichi "Kodo" Fuyuki lived a controversial life. From wrestler, to booker, to promoter, he believed his style of wrestling was the right direction for the business. Fuyuki had 27 different title reigns, and although he made many mistakes on several occasions, and had bad luck along the way, he was always respect among his peers and someone who loved the business of professional wrestling almost more than anyone.
