Jetlag posted a topic in June 1998This was an utterly insane, blood drenched spectacle. Orihara looked really great here, taking one of the craziest bumps I've ever seen, and ripping Takeru's mask and kicking him in the face, and generally doing a massive feat holding this together. His selling was fucking crazy too as he was selling the blood in a way that you fought someone was really about to die here. Match also had a bunch of awkward painful high end junior offense, stiff powerbombs and neck compressing suplexes and all that.
Jetlag posted a topic in September 1997WDF opening matches keep on delivering. This was less of a horrific fascinating trainwreck, and just a really fun match with stiff shots and some matwork. Fujizaki continues to bring the hatred, in this case he goes at it with generic rookie Tsukioka (the future Kuishinbo Kamen) and bah gawd Tsukioka actually gives it back to him! Fujizaki starts the fun with stiff headbutts and slaps, and Tsukioka gives him back some with Tenryu style kicks to the face and stiff punches from mount. Man it's insane these two wound up being comedy workers, can you imagine the universe in which Fugofugo Yumeji and Kuishinbo Kamen had an epic bloodfeud? Takeru looked like the IWA Japan resident Hayabusa ripoff, and actually wasn't a highspot machine, in fact he was easily outshone by Makoto Saito. Saito hits a gorgous springboard tope and also almost breaks Takeru's face with a spin kick. This was worked almost like a mini-AJPW epic under 15 minutes, stiff shots and neck-crushing suplexes and neat double teams and some decent enough matwork. Somewhere on the verge between fun and really good, but man I wish there was a company around right now that put on wrestling like this.
