This was the yusho for the Young Generation Battle Tournament 2001. As you can probably tell, a lot of these tournaments take place in August in Japan. It was good to see Ishikawa have a proper BattlARTS match. I'm not a big fan of Usuda (I feel like I say that every time I write about his matches), but he's a guy who'll give you a proper BattlARTS match. This wasn't great, but it was good, and I thought Usuda was a step above throughout the match and deserved his win. Ishikawa didn't quite salvage Japanese men's pro-wrestling with this performance, but that's a big ask for a tiny indy show, so I'll try not to hold it against him.
