[1996-09-01-FMW-Super Dynamism] Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Koji Nakagawa vs W*ING Kanemura & Hideki Hosaka & Hido (Exploding Barbed Wire Death)

Recommended Posts

I'm just the opposite; this is my favorite FMW deathmatch. More action/better pacing than you got from various singles and 2-on-2 ones, there was somewhat of a match structure as the heels dominate the middle and the babyfaces stage a big comeback, there's plenty of credible nearfalls, and a satisfying finish.

First part of this was just a lot of fumbling around on the mat, but this got better as it went along. Tanaka looked fantastic, throwing tremendous energy into his bumps and providing some great-looking offense. Really good finish, too, that ends at just the right time after the heels get eliminated.

Weird atmosphere again with buildings and bouncy houses in the background. The beginning meandered around a lot but once the explosions came into play, this became a really good spectacle and some of the explosion bumps were filmed better than I have seen almost any bump of that nature be filmed. FMW continues to find its legs. ***

I found this a pretty damn impressive match. Often when you have a barbed wire rope match, especially tag team it seems, the confines of the ring without even being able to run the ropes gives the match a really confined feeling and it sort of breaks down into a bad kind of disorganization. But they really used the gimmick here to work the match around a well-executed story. The first deathmatch spot was really well done, came out of nowhere. Tanaka and Kuroda are left alone to fight 2 vs. 3 and mostly are beaten down, though there is one good comeback tease. Kuroda sacrifices himself to take out one of the feels and Koji comes makes a big comeback to lead to the win, with a really good last minute or two pulling the trigger on some big explosion spots. I thought this was a really well worked match for its gimmick and the perfect length.
