Rick Fuller debuted for New Japan on July 5th, replacing Travis Tomko as Giant Bernard's primary tag team partner. After he and Giant Bernard ran through the mid-card, they got a title shot for the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship on July 21st against Togi Makabe and Toru Yano. Fuller would be pinned by Yano however in his first defeat in New Japan, and for the rest of the year he continued teaming with Giant Bernard occasionally on tours. In the G1 Tag League he and Giant Bernard had a good deal of success, as they reached the Semi Finalist Decision Match but lost to Shinsuke Nakamura and Hirooki Goto when Goto pinned Fuller.
