[1986-11-07-AJW] Chigusa Nagayo vs Dump Matsumoto (Hair vs Hair II)


Recommended Posts

While it is hard for me to call this a feel good match considering the beating Chigusa takes for most of the match, the ending and postmatch have such a satisfying overcoming the odds feel to them. This has a more commanding Matsumoto performance as compared to 8/85: strutting around arrogantly, beating up the referee, torturing Nagayo. Chigusa delivers yet another epic selling babyface performance. Her wandering around, dazed and half blinded by blood is quite the visual. The hope spots are great and the crowd reactions enhance everything. Great finish that works as the perfect payback spot. Dramatic and emotional. Must-see just like the first hair match. **** 1/4

Much like their first hair match, this was total carnage. Dump is downright despicable and Nagayo is over like Hawk & Animal in Chicago. I wasn't a fan of Dump attacking the referee, only for the ref to get up and start defending himself as it made the wrestlers look weak. The referee got color before the bell even rang! Dump pulling out a god-damn sword was insane, but I thought it was way too over-the-top. Nagayo gets worked over for the majority of the match and her bleeding out made for a memorable visual. All the transitional spots were handled well, with Nagayo finding an opening and fighting with all her heart to keep Dump down. This had fantastic performances from both women and it made for a hellish bloodbath, despite my minor criticisms. ★★★★¼
