I am probably the high vote on this as I enjoyed it a good deal for the 13 minutes it lasted. Liger especially seemed in a more goofy but dickish move thrusting and flicking over Taikawa on the apron. Samurai predictably takes a beating from mainly Kanemoto and they are able to put him away with a moonsault.

I enjoyed seeing both teams invent new ways to put opponents in holds so their partner could level them with dropkicks, and Liger's general dickishness. After Takaiwa & Kanemoto get absolutely brutalized for 10 minutes in near-squash fashion I thought their comeback and victory came a little too easily, though on the other hand it's hard to argue with Samurai not being able to continue after taking three power bombs and a moonsault. Enjoyable but ultimately inconsequential.

A poor match. There were a few occasions when the move damage levels and selling were way off base. Some incorrect move selections as well. From a general perspective there were a couple of trends in the Junior division from this time period I'm not a fan of. Firstly the increased strike orientation made the style less aesthetically pleasing. Secondly the niggley rivalry psychology was being overdone. It made the Juniors less fun.
