I thought this was ok, but it was too much Fuyuki and Nakano, and not enough Tenryu and Yatsu. As a result, this was one of the most disappointing Tenryu matches on a yearbook so far, not because it was a bad match, but because it lacked personality. The best moments are when Tenryu is in, especially when he tries his back elbow on Nakano and Yatsu moves him out of the way, and when Yatsu goes chair-crazy, but I was hoping for more from this.

Wow, I liked this a hell of a lot. Yatsu has dropped some weight and puts on what is easily his best performance since '89, just a lurking force whether in or out of the ring. They hold off on a lot of big Tenryu/Yatsu one-on-one stuff but I thought the two junior halves were perfectly fine, even if Yatsu's shrunken gut has transferred itself to Fuyuki. I was not looking forward to seeing any more of SWS Yatsu but now I want to see a singles match of his against Tenryu if one exists.

Nakano was taking some chops throughout. I liked it and thought it was really going to pick up once Yatsu went chair crazy and tagged in. His interaction with Tenryu is a bit on the short side though. They could have got more out of that before going to the finish.

Sorry, guys, but I had no use for Yatsu's chair swinging. How that isn't a DQ, especially after he nearly fractures Fuyuki's skull with one shot, I have no idea. Take that away and this is just a rather pedestrian little tag match, with Nakano and Fuyuki doing the bulk of the work and Tenryu and Yatsu supplying personality when needed. Nakano takes some impressive chops to show how tough he is, and it's obvious that he's bring groomed for bigger and better things, but he eats the fall for the veteran Tenryu here.

 

I notice that they're using a WWF ring, or at least WWF turnbuckle pads, but this card wasn't a WWF co-promotion. You'd have to think that Vince gave them permission to use some of his stuff, even if he didn't send wrestlers to a given SWS card.

 

Does anyone know who Tenryu shook hands with before he helped Fuyuki up? Is it someone we should be familiar with? He's definitely Japanese, or at least Oriental.
