  1. The Great Sasuke defends the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title. Talk about it here.
  2. Wrestling pirates invade BattlARTS! Yes Gulliver X and Gulliver XX are indeed wrestling pirates. They come in wearing bright neon outfits, hockey masks and carrying big goofy weapons. They have a manager with them who is dressed in hat, coat and eye patch. He also has a rifle that he likes to bash people with. I won't bore you with in-depth analysis of this spectacle so let me give you the highlights. Ishikawa goes all shoot matwork on the buccaneers asses! Sasuke busts out an insanely stiff spin kick & jumping headbutts! Pirates love announce table spots! Their manager loves to bear hug! Ishikawa literally kicks ass before stuffing the smaller pirates corpse under the ring (What?)! Larger Pirate acts like Brody! Great Sasuke is INSANE! Ishikawa busts out a flip dive! Smaller Gulliver takes a huge corner bump! All in a days work. I will say I appreciate that they didn't run this joke into the ground. If the Gullivers were to debut today they'd probably become a running joke for months/years. Gullivers getting lengthy programs with Danshoku Dino. One Gulliver getting an appearance in the BOSJ before becoming a serious wrestler and challenging Okada in Tokyo Dome. And so on, South of Heaven, etc. But no, they had one bizarre, funny and highly entertaining Christmas time match and left it at that. Pirates were fun competent pro wrestlers and Sasuke and Ishikawa were a blast in this. I have no idea why this match isn't famous.
  3. Very nationalistic crowd to start with, with a big "ME-XI-CO" chant, but Casas eventually seems to turn the crowd against him as this goes on. I hesitate to keep beating the phrase "meat and potatoes" to death and use it for any match in 1996 where a limb gets worked for 3 consecutive seconds, but that's the phrase that comes to mind here. Until the finishes, the first 2 falls are entirely mat-based and the third is about half matwork and a quarter apiece flying and shtick. There's not much overly advanced here but Casas continues to be a master worker--every time he gets near Tiger Mask in Sasuke's corner he pratfalls, framing TM for tripping or hitting him, and then takes the opportunity to low blow Sasuke or commit some other rudo act. That nets him the second fall and gains him an advantage in the third. Sasuke does his big spots well and holds his own in working holds, but he is showing a pretty consistent tendency to completely blow off the limb work so he can get his flying spots in, and it's as bad as ever here. This is still a very good match overall, sort of a lesser man's Malenko vs. Rey in terms of high-end technical stuff, but more smartly booked.
  4. I hate to keep using "fall out of bed good," but that's what this is. You get the familiar arm-pumping comedy spots, and the double surfboard to triple surfboard to triple pin attempt spot, and the dive trains. What jumps out in this match in particular is the star-making performance from TAKA. He fits into this seamlessly, throwing some vicious strikes and of course wowing everybody with his spaceman planchas and springboard dropkicks.
