Fujita vs. Chono vs. Lesnar

The one word to describe this match is utilitarian. It got the job done, and little else. It was an eight minute match with one goal: get Brock over with the Japanese fans, and it did exactly that, with Brock destroying the biggest star in New Japan and beating their champion. However, it came at the expense of any real drama or entertainment. Brock was never in peril, and neither was anyone else, really. It was brawling between two men until the third intruded. Wash, rinse, and repeat. The real highlight of this match was Chono -- as always, he was a ring general, and sold like crazy for Brock's offense. This could have been a great match if it was just Brock and Chono, since Chono could have played face in peril and utilized his crowd popping offense and natural sense of psychology to excellent effect, but Fujita in there just disrupted the flow and made this a pedestrian affair. Overall, this was a pretty middling match, notable only for the title change and Brock's debut.

Brock used more kicks and clubbering forearms than I recall him using in WWE. In fact his offense pretty much consisted of clotheslines, shoulderblocks in the corner, a german suples, a scoop slam, a sliding kick under the ropes, the Verdict, and the previously mentioned punches and kicks. Pedestrian stuff but it worked well enough.
