[2000-11-03-FMW] Hayabusa & Masato Tanaka & Onryo vs Kintaro Kanemura & Kodo Fuyuki & GOEMON (2/3 falls)

Recommended Posts

This is a 2/3 falls match at Korakuen Hall and it was pretty heatless which is a surprise as the FMW Korakuen crowds are mostly responsive to everything in these big FMW main events, yet they sat on their hands kept quite for the majority of this. The match itself I thought never picked up and was kinda boring. There was some brief crowd brawling moments which is an FMW staple, but those were really brief as most of the action took place in the ring. What I did dig was them going 2/0 and not having to rely on the third fall as it seems to be common trend in 2/3 falls matches. The first fall came in around a minute or so when Hayabusa caught Fuyuki in a cradle. The highlight of the second fall for me was Kanemura delivering a crazy powerbomb off the ring apron through a table on Tanaka. Aside from that, this seemed pretty uninspired to me.

I still can’t put my finger on what it is in FMW where the luster is lost but it is gone currently. Maybe Busa is being booked too strong for my liking. Sure enough in this match he is beat down and beat down for the majority of the proceedings until he makes a big comeback in the final fall and wins it for his team. Afterwards, we get another big promo and he unmasks. It just seems like we have seen this a lot lately and the emotional punch is gone. This was also filmed weirdly in a quasi handcam style that took me out of the match. Overall, pretty pedestrian for a lineup of workers I generally like a lot. **1/2
