  1. Uuh what to you think happens in this match. Two thickly built japanese dudes have a tea party or something? No they beat the hell out of eachother. Hara starts this match working like Kurisu, trying to take the match to the outside and brain Saito with chairs. Meanwhile Saito just tries to cave Haras chest in with kicks. I've no idea why no japanese promotion (besides W*ING for a brief moment) has tried to do more with Saito in the 90s because he was a perfectly good b-side Hashimoto and the crowd loved him here. Lots of nasty kicks and lariats, Hara takes bigger bumps than you'd expect from a thick old dude, and they keep it short and sweet.
  2. I'm not the biggest Koshinaka fan, but put him in a heated brawl and he can deliver. This was similiar to Koshinaka/Tenryu, and for old sumo guy who will kick you in the face Ishikawa isn't much below Tenryu. Ishikawa kicks, stomps and lariats were obviously incredibly violent, he just circles his prey and drives his boots really hard into the eye sockets, also seconds start brawling at one point (Kitahara spits on rowdy NJPW fans), Koshinaka bleeds and has some crazy selling... the nearfall ladden finishing run is really fun, and at one point Ishikawa drops Koshinaka throat first on the ropes when he went for his goofy hip attack. In short, it was everything a WAR vs. NJPW main event needs to be.
  3. I'm a Hiro Saito fan so him getting to work semi main event on a card full of nasty violent brawls is excitig. And this was another really fun nasty violent brawl. It needed some blood, but other than that this delivered. Just two dudes dropping each other with one nastier move after another. Some nasty as hell exposed turnbuckle bumps, and old man Kengo Kimura will still crack your ribs. Saito uses about 3 moves but all in about the stiffest possible variation. He does a nosebreaker which is like a jawbreaker except he breaks the other guys nose, he hits some stiff as hell thrust kicks and of course his senton is the greatest thing in the world. For a match that starts violent they continue to escalate the violence pretty well. Early Saito hits a standing senton – which looked like it absolutely sucked, then later a senton from the 2nd rope which almost knocks Kimura out, when he finally goes to the top rope for the big senton you think Kimura is going to die.
  4. This was fun but didn't quite live up to the violent potential of the match, due to SS Machine not really living up to it. Mostly Machine works over Aoyagis bandaged arm while Aoyagi makes fun kick based comebacks. Machines rudo work okay but he really needed to bring a little more violence on a card that was full of violent braws, just don't buy his noodle arm lariats putting away Aoygi. Perfectly fine stuff and there was some good close quarter fighting at one point but feels like a waste of an Aoyagi singles in a heated feud.
  5. A nice reminder why the NJPW vs. WAR feud was one of the greatest things in history. A mix of great heat and messy out of control violence. This is really pro wrestling vale tudo, two guys trying to fuck eachother up, they would go to the ground, but there would be eye gouging there and as soon as they got up they would throw kicks and headbutts again. Kitahara was just killing Kobayashi here with brutal kicks to the eye and Kobayashi holds up his own just running into Kitahara with headbutts repeatedly. The rules in this were a little weird, there doesn't seem to be pinfalls and Tiger Hattori is watching from ringside like a super libre match. At the end one guy takes a series of brutal DDTs and is choked out and after lying motionlessly for what felt like an eternity they decide to stop the match. Pretty unique and stands out as one of the most brutal match endings in the feud which covers a loooooot of ground.
