  1. These type of garbage brawl meets Kings Road matches haven't aged very well. The dueling chairs spot, guys getting hit in the head with trash, the wandering crowd brawling, you've just seen it too many times, and FMW seeming dry and heatless by 1998 doesn't help. Still Kanemura's performance here was enjoyable, he worked the arm like a fiend during the opening section, even going back on it with some nice Fujiwaras later on, bloodied his opponent and worked the cut good, and bumped like Misawa, taking a german suplex on his head and a nasty guilltone drop into the corner steel. Kuroda pretty much does the same spots in every damn match he's in so Kanemura getting some interesting exchanges out of him was impressive.
  2. I'm a huge fan of the Japanese indies (namely the garbage promotions, so theoretically I should automatically love this), but this didn't work for me. The spend the majority of the match from the start just going for props and setting up spots involving props. 2-3 minutes and they're already walking to the back for Kanemura to undo a light tube ala Ryuji Yamakawa in his previous match with Kanemura some months before this. Since its Kanemura singles match, you know there has to be a balcony dive and unbreakable tables. So we get the balcony dive and then there's this ridiculous tornado DDT spot on the ring apron from Tanaka onto a table which of course is just Kanemura getting faceplanted as the table doesn't break. Get past that and they get back in the ring and then its just them throwing bombs at each other with chairs and a barbed wire baseball bat on fire being thrown in the mix. Ugh...
  3. This is a 2/3 falls match at Korakuen Hall and it was pretty heatless which is a surprise as the FMW Korakuen crowds are mostly responsive to everything in these big FMW main events, yet they sat on their hands kept quite for the majority of this. The match itself I thought never picked up and was kinda boring. There was some brief crowd brawling moments which is an FMW staple, but those were really brief as most of the action took place in the ring. What I did dig was them going 2/0 and not having to rely on the third fall as it seems to be common trend in 2/3 falls matches. The first fall came in around a minute or so when Hayabusa caught Fuyuki in a cradle. The highlight of the second fall for me was Kanemura delivering a crazy powerbomb off the ring apron through a table on Tanaka. Aside from that, this seemed pretty uninspired to me.
  4. This is a barbed wire street fight scramble bunkhouse double hell death match. So what that really means is there's a barbed wire bat hanging on top of the ring with two sides of the ropes covered in barbed wire a ladder to grab the barbed bat some boards covered in barbed wire on the outside of the ring and a table in the ring. This is nowhere near as chaotic or fun as the previous Onita Pro no rope barbed multi man main event matches we have previously throughout the year. I don't want to sound negative or extremely nitpicky, but this felt actually pretty coordinated at times. I also disliked how they built towards the scramble for the baseball wire bat, yet it wasn't really used with much significance and was just used as another prop in the match. Thought this was rather underwhelming. I guess my taste in wrestling have changed drastically as I was really high on these back when I originally watched all of these FMW matches some 15 or so years ago.
  5. The co-main event was another match where you have no idea what to expect going and then you end up being positively surprised. I'd never seen pre-deathmatch Kanemura or Matsuzaki before, only snippets of Itakura and Motegi is a guy who is a notorious fuckup. All 4 guys won me over, though. Matsuzaki was a black trunks rookie, but he had really nice sharp kicks and headbutts, and Itakura was a fairly athletic tubby guy. Motegi looked pretty sharp, and everyone worked stiff and got the crowd into the match. They did flaring tempers nicely, leading to 3 guys hitting awesome dives and then a double countout which they turned into a restart and then did a really nice finish with Motegi hittig his awesome triple german into Kanemura getting the win.
