[1996-11-16-GAEA-Big Target] Mayumi Ozaki & Sugar Sato vs Reiko Amano & Chikayo Nagashima

Recommended Posts

Oz Academy explodes! Even though this is joshi and rules generally don't matter and people like Toyota use chairs and tables frequently, you still get the sense that Ozaki & Sato are finally getting a taste of their own medicine when their opponents use similar heel tactics on them. Oz is just awesome, plain and simple--she has a perpetual sick grin on her face, even when she's beating beaten up--and yet it doesn't feel like she's no-selling, it just feels like Oz being Oz, keeping a stiff upper lip and all that. She also has perfect timing on when to stand tall and shrug off her opponent's offense and when to sell--basically Amano & Nagashima have the advantage if they double-team or surprise her from behind, but rarely otherwise. Sato gets to show off some personality of her own as well, and Nagashima busts out a sort-of top-rope Van Daminator that looks way cool. Quite a bit of ECW influence here, which is well-done even if some may roll their eyes at it. I wouldn't really call this a high-end match by worldwide or GAEA standards, but Ozaki is entering that zone for me where I pretty much want to watch everything of hers on tape.
