The term "puroresu" is an abbreviation of "purofesshonaru resuringu (professional wrestling in Japanese tongue)" and was made famous by Hisaharu Tanabe to the English-speaking audience around 1990 in order to distinguish between the Japanese style and its American counterpart. Because of Internet and newsletters, there has been more access to puroresu in recent years, thus generating a bigger following in other countries.
