Team No Respect
For over two years this controversial stable was apart of the main angles, the main feuds, and the main money making matches for FMW.
After Atsushi Onita would disband W*ING on September 28, 1997 at Kawasaki Stadium, he would denounce himself as a FMW wrestler. He would take a trip to the hospital with the former W*ING Kanemura as the two would talk about creating their own group.
Atsushi Onita would announce on September 30, 1997 the creation of ZEN. The group would consist of Atsushi Onita, the three former W*ING wrestlers in Yukihiro Kanemura, Hido, and Hideki Hosaka. As well as FMW wrestler Tetsuhiro Kuroda.
In October 1997, The Funk Masters of Wrestling which had been the lead heel group for over a year was finally crumbling as all the members begin fighting upon one another while feuding with ZEN. Soon Mr. Gannosuke & The Gladiator would join ZEN while Hisakatsu Oya would join the FMW team.
While in ZEN, Mr. Gannosuke & Yukihiro Kanemura would begin forming a unique bond and friendship upon one another as the two would get the most heel heat throughout the night as the two had amazing chemistry upon one another.
FMW would run a show Komazawa Olympic Stadium on December 19, 1997, the main
matches would be Gannosuke and Kanemura defending the Tag Titles against
Hayabusa and Jinsei Shinzaki, and Onita would be wrestling Masato
Tanaka. Onita took it upon himself to book his match against Tanaka as
the Main Event of the show, and make the Tag Title match in the undercard. This
really upset Mr. Gannosuke who was really coming into his own. Onita and
Gannosuke got into many heated backstage conversations in which Gannosuke was held
back by Kanemura and Hido who were clearly siding with
Gannosuke and Kanemura would go on and successfully defend the FMW Brass Knuckles Tag Team Titles against Hayabusa and Shinzaki, while Onita defeated Tanaka in the Main Event and went on to praise Tanaka after the match. This really upset Gannosuke who yelled at Onita for giving respect to someone in FMW.
Onita then booked a match at Korakuen Hall for December 22, 1997 which would be a 6 Man War Games Style match which consisted of ZEN's Onita, Gannosuke, and Kanemura taking on FMW's Hayabusa, Masato Tanaka, and Jinsei Shinzaki.
During this match Gannosuke and Kanemura parted to themselves and only helped Onita to kick out. But in the end Gannosuke and Kanemura were down and Hayabusa had laid Onita down and climbed the top of the cage and did a Moonsault fifteen feet in the air to get the pin on Onita for the victory. Gannosuke and Kanemura looked up at the fallen and beaten Onita and begin unleash the frustrations by tying him up the cage and slapping him and beating the crap out of him with a chair which ZEN member Kuroda tried to make the save but was quickly dumped out and then Koji Nakagawa a wrestler who had been fired by FMW because of money problems who was brought back and then left the FMW team because of lack of trust ran in the cage and got Gannosuke, Kanemura, and Hido running.
January 6, 1998 at Korakuen Hall, Mr. Gannosuke
was given a shot at the FMW Double Titles which consisted of the Brass Knuckles
Title and Independent Title against Masato Tanaka. Much blood was lost in this
match, mostly to Tanaka's arm which had been bladed to death by Gannosuke, and
as Tanaka seemed to have the match won Gannosuke rolled him up and got the 3
count and became the New FMW Doubles Titles Champion.
January 7, 1998 Atsushi Onita ran his first ZEN show at Korakuen Hall in the main event Onita, Nakagawa, and Kuroda defeated Gannosuke, Kanemura, and Hido in a 6 Man Street Fight after Nakagawa rolled up Hido, but after the match something very historical would happen as Fuyuki-Gun which was lead by Kodo Fuyuki with Jado who were very anti ZEN came out and helped Gannosuke's group beat down Onita. They all quickly left after the beat down and all went to the locker rooms together. In the locker rooms, Kanemura held up a piece of paper and proclaimed this group of Gannosuke, Kanemura, Fuyuki, and Jado the group "Team No Respect".
At the very next show on January 16, 1998 in Yokkaichi, Mr. Gannosuke, Yukihiro Kanemura, and Jado won the FMW 6 Man Street Fight Titles against Hayabusa, Masato Tanaka, and Hisakatsu Oya after Jado pinned Oya. As they were being presented the belts, Gannosuke tore up pushed away Arai who was presenting the belts and tore up and then pulled down their pants to show their white briefs to show the lack of respect they had for anyone.
February 6, 1998 at Korakuen Hall, Gannosuke and Kanemura defeated Jinsei Shinzaki and Hisakatsu Oya after Gannosuke made his rival of almost a year pass out after choking out him the ropes which had broken off the ring. After the match, Gannosuke grabbed the mic and proclaimed for the first challenger for his Double Titles, he wanted a worthy challenger and that President Arai should setup a 8 Man Tournament to proclaim the Number 1 Contender.
At the house shows of the tour, Former Funk Masters of Wrestling member Super Leather had begun a bond with the group and started helping them out in their matches, and would later be inducted in. Other Fuyuki-Gun member Gedo returned to FMW was let in the group as well.
February 13, 1998 at a show promoted by ZEN at Korakuen Hall Hall, Atsushi Onita, Koji Nakagawa and Tetsuhiro Kuroda would win back the FMW 6 Man Street Fight Belts after beating Gannosuke, Kanemura, and Jado after Nakagawa would out a bloody Kanemura for the win.

would ran a show where Mr. Gannosuke and Yukihiro Kanemura would defend the FMW Brass
Knuckles Tag Team Titles
against ZEN members Koji Nakagawa and Tetsuhiro Kuroda. Before the match FMW
referee Go Ito was on crutches after a beat down by TNR after not getting the
decision they felt they deserved was to announce the match and present the
Titles to the winner of the match. But it resulted in Nakagawa climbing to the
top rope and Go Ito jumping on the top of the apron and breaking the crutches
over Nakagawa for the easy victory for TNR. After the match Go Ito revealed
himself as the newest member of Team No Respect and went to back with Gannosuke
and Kanemura and began smoking with them as a disrespect he had for
In the main event, Kodo Fuyuki got one of the biggest wins of his career as not only did he unmask and bloody up Hayabusa but he beat him clean in the ring, after the match he was boasted up TNR's shoulders to shower in the glory of his victory.
The FMW number 1 contenders Tournament was now coming up, and Kanemura and Jado were placed in the tournament. Both of them got victories as Go Ito distracted the referee for Kanemura to defeat Nakagawa, as interference caused Jado to beat Kuroda and move in the tournament. But in the Semi Finals The Gladiator quickly destroyed Kanemura before Gannosuke got a chance to interfere, and Gannosuke's interference backfired on Jado as he ended up hitting Jado and causing Hayabusa to get the victory.
March 13, 1998 at the Sapporo Nakajima Sports Center in a show ran by ZEN, TNR would be taking on ZEN in a 8 Man Street Fight as also had a mystery partner in the match. The partner turned out to be Horace Boulder who destroyed Onita quickly as TNR took apart the rest of the ZEN members as they handcuffed Hideki Hosaka to the turnbuckle and had Nakagawa and Kuroda laid out which caused the beaten Onita to take on Boulder, Gannosuke, Kanemura, and Jado. Even with the handicap advantage Fuyuki still came in the match and knocked out Onita with a running clothesline while Go Ito came in and smashed a crutch over Onita's back knocking him out completely. TNR then all surrounded Onita and put one foot over him for the victory as Gannosuke was given the pinfall decision. TNR began to stand over the fallen Onita and began to do the Team No Respect dance until Onita woke up, which caused them to quickly get out of there but the 150 pound Go Ito wasn't fast enough and got a Clothesline and Thunder Fire Powerbomb as a result.
March 17, 1998 at Korakuen Hall, beginning to get very
over as the heel group, TNR would announce the newest member to their group,
Hayabusa. It would turn out to be Kanemura in a Hayabusa outfit. Kanemura would
grb the mic and begin to cry to
mock Hayabusa and then pulled down his pants to reveal the briefs and announced
that he joined the group. Later in the show, Kodo Fuyuki and Gedo came out in a
match against Kuroda and Nakagawa, with Fuyuki coming out to Onita's music and
ring attire, stitches all over the place, and water bottle to against disrespect
Onita. In an eight man Street Fight Gannosuke, Kanemura, Boulder, and Jado
defeated Masato Tanaka, Jinsei Shinzaki, Hisakatsu Oya, and Ricky Fuji when
Boulder pinned Ricky, but during the match Shinzaki and Gannosuke who had become
arch rivals got a very big heated which caused both sides to have to break it

After this match, Hido had proven his worthiness to finally become a member of Team No Respect.

Gedo defeated Ricky Fuji and John Kronus when Jado pinned Kronus, Super Leather
and Horace Boulder who was wrestling in his last FMW match defeated The
Gladiator and Tetsuhiro Kuroda when Boulder pinned Kuroda. Jinsei Shinzaki still
manage to defeat Yukihiro Kanemura in his last match, as Go Ito interfered in
the match and ended up getting a corkscrew leg whip and a Nirvana Strangle as a
result and Kanemura then fell victim to the Praying Powerbomb for the 3 count to
Shinzaki. The biggest result on the show though was Kodo Fuyuki defeating
Atsushi Onita in a singles match with TNR's interference allover the place which
again resulted in Go Ito getting the crap beat out of him, but Fuyuki still
walked away the victor in one of the biggest matches of his career. In the main
event, Mr. Gannosuke wrestled Hayabusa who had won the Number 1 Contenders
Tournament after defeating The Gladiator. In this match, Hayabusa dropped kicked
Gannosuke very early in the match and caused Gannosuke to injure his knee, but

Hayabusa finished off Gannosuke with the Phoenix Splash for the victory and the
Double Titles. As a result of the injury, Gannosuke would be out of action for
over 6 months.
This would begin Stage 2 for Team No Respect, but certainly not the end of Team No Respect as Atsushi Onita was holding a ZEN show on his day, May 5, 1998 against Fuyuki, Kanemura, and Hido for the 6 Man Titles, at the end Team No Respect won the match and the FMW 6 Man Street Fight Titles after Hido pinned Nakagawa to win the 6 Man Titles. After the match though, Go Ito out and made the fallen Onita bow down and kiss his foot.

throwing bottles of trash in the ring. TNR began to lay out Hayabusa with

The group would silently end once again in 2003. Also in 2003, the world would lose a main member of the Team No Respect in Kodo Fuyuki on March 19th due to cancer. Many wrestlers from different promotions along with Kintaro Kanemura would show respect to Fuyuki by doing one last TNR Dance at his funeral. The TNR Dance still remains alive in 2004, as The Apache Army which consists of many of the former TNR members of Kintaro Kanemura, Mr. Gannosuke, GOEMON, and Hido with Go Ito as their manager while running the Fuyuki Army Promotion. The group would even bring back the Brief Brothers four years later after having their briefs crucified by Atsushi Onita and perform skits just like the glory days of Team No Respect. Even though those glory days of Team No Respect ended after the November 23, 1999 Yokohama Arena show, Team No Respect will always be remembered for the creative actions that took place due to the group whether they were positive or negative. The TNR Dance will always live on with the spirit of FMW.
