I agree that KP made a name for himself without relying on Rza to come and do everything for him, but saying that he made it without any help from Rza is wrong. First of all, KP himself said that Gza and Rza helped him a lot behind the scenes in the beginning stages of the Wu movement. More importantly though, KP did get a cosign from the Rza. What is that good for? Well if nothing else, it will make it so that Wu fans check for you to some degree. I'm pretty sure most KP fans were Wu fans first.
