Obviously a big letdown, as Backlund unleashes some awesome forearms and a back suplex before sustaining an injury when Takada kicks him in the gut and the match comes to an end. Past history and Backlund's opening flurry suggest this really could have gone somwhere special.

I think this was done the way it was to present Backlund as someone who was foolish to try shoot-style since he had no background in it. There isn't an American equivalent to this, because in America the untrained combatants end up going over more often than not, mostly as faces to boot. I'm surprised one kick was all it took, though; you'd think Takada would have at least wanted to show off a few of his moves and strikes before putting the invader away.

 

I can't believe that anyone wanted to see Backlund try this again, but since they obviously did I'd like to see what he can do in this style when he's given a real chance.
