GOTNW posted a topic in July 1991This match was basically: gauging>legwork>peril>comeback/finish. Gauging was fine, as it is usually in these types of matches, but there was nothng particularly interesting here. The legwork consisted of Miyato doing the same low kick again and again to Burton, which was fine I guess. Match became interesting once Burton started selling the damage, and him throwing Miyato around later on was also fun. Wasn't big on how they treated Burton's knees, like they do some damage but nothing significant as it rendered most of his offence meaningless. **3/4
GOTNW posted a topic in May 1991This was a pretty brilliant way of Takada putting himself over. Burton is an amateur guy whose skills here are limited to takedowns and slams, and even when he would do something on offence Takada was never lost, if he'd get taken down he'd keep a hold of Burton's limb and prevent him from taking advantage of it. Burton's selling here was as "big" as it can get in a shoot style match that I still like it, and with the narrative of Takada possessing superior technique it totally worked for me. This was also evident in Takada not having much trouble in escaping from Burton's submissions while scoring the win the first time he grabbed a bigger hold (and the slam he gave Burton before it just screamed "Takada #1"). Also Takada stiffed Burton with some really nice palm strikes and head kicks which I'll always love. ***1/4
