Jushin Liger & El Samurai vs Wild Pegasus & Dean Malenko - NJPW 3/9/93


This is clearly from NJPW, but it is presented by WSW with Craig DeGeorge & Sir Oliver Humeprdink on commentary and they are not that bad! They actually call the action pretty well. It seems like WSW just repackaged NJPW matches with English commentary for American consumption.


Pretty ordinary matches from these four. I thought Liger/Benoit parts were clearly the best. Liger outsmarting Benoit with speed and then doing the Hogan ear cup and then Rude hip swivel was the definitely the only reason to go out of your way to watch. Sammy seemed to coast and Malenko besides busting out one great submission didn't add much. Benoit was a machine on offense in control of Sammy. Liger gets tag and so does Malenko. I figure Malenko is easy pickins' but Benoit saves on LigerBomb. They actually tease Benoit pinning Liger twice with German and Diving Headbutt but Sammy saves both times. Even Malenko gets some love with a nearfall from a Northern Lights. Sammy/Benoit brawl. Liger hits Frankensteiner out of nowhere.


Perfectly good match. Fun antics from Liger and good intensity from Benoit. Exciting finish stretch. That seems like a real Liger hallmark is good wrestling then throw out 4-5 big spots at the end to send crowd home happy ***
