Last few minutes. These two had a series in 1998-1999 that was critically acclaimed but was exactly the type of crap Joshi people have watched and not particularly enjoyed in previous years. I had no use for any of these matches when I watched them and thought it was probably better to spotlight stuff about which people will generally be positive in 2014. This finish is here pretty much only to show that we are aware this feud existed. But Kyoko was past her peak by this time and with very few exceptions, Lioness Asuka seems to have left her ability to work a no-frills, gimmick-free wrestling match in the previous decade.

I used to like this series of matches. They do nothing for me anymore and are quite annoying. If you like the Trashi style of one match then you'll probably enjoy them all. The hour draw might be a stretch, although it was clipped thankfully. I've rewatched the 1998 material in my collection from Jd'. The overall quality is quite reasonable but the promotion wasn't exactly setting the world alight. A couple of matches that I would recommend are:

 

Jaguar Yokota & Yoko Kosugi vs Lioness Aska & The Bloody (Jd 2/2/98)

Yoko Kosugi vs Sumie Sakai (Jd 12/29/98)

This is a sort-of dream match between two big names and the result is absolutely awful. Inoue spends the whole match getting quadruple-teamed by Asuka and three goons, thus sparing us the sight of having to sit through an actual wrestling match, because we all know wrestling is out in 1998. Lots of feng shui furniture-arranging in lieu of action, including a top-rope power bomb that involves some of the most bush-league, business-exposing, amateur-hour execution I've ever seen in a joshi match. Inoue gets her ass kicked the entire match that we see and then pins Asuka in one move, and on top of that the finish is blown, too. Maybe the worst joshi segment of any Yearbook.
