Yamasaki Corporation was a
professional wrestlingstable in the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions.
Yamasaki Corporation was formed in February 1989 when The Four Horsemen disbanded because
James J. Dillonleft for the World Wrestling Federation. The onscreen story was that Ric Flairfired Dillon because he let Ricky Steamboatsneak into the promotion. Flair replaced Dillon with Hiro Matsuda, who was the representative of a rich Japanese company called Yamasaki Corporation. They were joined by Flair's Horsemen partner Barry Windham, his brother Kendall and Butch Reed.
Their major feuds were with
Lex Luger, Eddie Gilbert, Ricky Steamboatand Sting and they did everything they could to get rid of these opponents.
After losing the U. S. title to Luger, Barry Windham left the group due to an injury (a broken hand which occurred in his match against Luger at
Chi-Town Rumbleand required surgery; this enabled him to leave the promotion and show up in the WWF as "The Widowmaker") and Kendall was not used as much more than a jobber and the group seemed like a shell of the unit it looked like on paper when it formed. They added Michael Hayes after Barry's injury and he feuded with Luger but the group disbanded when Hayes reformed the Fabulous Freebirdsin May and Matsuda left the promotion.
