Top Definition
A theoretical phenomenon that occurs when a puroresu (Japanese pro wrestling) audience is so happy to see a native wrestler win over a gaijin, or foreigner, out of pure nationalistic pride, that said gaijin's gimmick is ignored, regardless of whether they "get it" or not.
"Well, Big Bossman's original "prison warden/security guard" gimmick may have been "lost" on the Japanese fans, but, then again, they may have succumbed to the "Rikidozan Effect" and been rendered indifferent to it."
