Samoa - I'm definitely wrong if all of his Pancrase wins are taken at face value. I admit that.
Ken's only "losses" in Pancrase were works.
Only one of his wins was a work - Ken vs Matt Hume - and they made it obvious (sunset flip/northern lights suplex) :)
There has been debate over one of the Suzuki fights.
But its pretty much common knowledge that he put Funaki over, as well as Suzuki the second time.
The thing is, nobody in Pancrase could really handle Ken straight up. A couple of the guys, like Suzuki and Funaki, probably had more submissions knowledge overall. But Ken made up the difference by being a freak of nature. He was just too damn strong.
But the powers that be at Pancrase didn't want their champion losing in other organizations, like the UFC. So they had him put guys over. It was a different time, and a different culture. Anyways, this was the beginning of Ken falling out with Pancrase and staying full time in the US.
Ken's wins over Bas and Funaki have never been disputed that I have seen. You can watch them yourself, and they pass the eyeball test. Since Funaki and Bas were the 2 best Pancrase fighters other than Ken... I'd say these wins speak volumes.
It can be argued that Bas was the most successful Pancrase fighter of that era, while Ken was the best/most dominant.
Bas had wins over Funaki, Suzuki, Yamada, Mo Smith, Frank, Mezger, etc. 3 time KOP!
But Bas lost to Ken twice, and never got revenge.
Ken is the only fighter Bas fought that he was never able to beat. He only lost a couple of other times, and he avenged them both.
Really, it was a bad matchup for Bas. Ken even overpowered Bas i striking exchanges, which is the one area where Bas should have had the advantage.
But even if you take Ken's worst case scenario record in the 90's, he would be 23-5-2. That is taking away his worked win over Hume, but leaving his worked losses.
30 fights, 23-5-2, 22 submissions, in about 3 years.
I'd say that's damn impressive by any standards.
