[1999-02-07-Toryumon-King of Dragon] Dragon Kid vs Judo Suwa

Recommended Posts

SUWA has hair, terrible acne and is dressed like the jerkiest kid in high school. Dragon Kid was only in his 2nd year of wrestling, but already a bonafide highspot machine. Again, Suwa has a heel faction at ringside that interferes very liberally. It's almost shocking how much this feels like the heel faction matches New Japan would do with the Bullet Club. The moves are better - in fact, the whacky twisting headscissors etc. look great, but the stuff in between is impossibly dry and you can tell they are just glueing spots together. SUWA wasn't as much of a prick as later on and this was merely an indicator of things that would plague Dragon System wrestlers and soon all of wrestling later on. However, because it went 8 minutes and not 16 or 45 the match didn't feel bloated.
