IWGP Heavyweight Champion Vader vs Bam Bam Bigelow -NJPW 9/20/89

These two have zero chemistry together. Totally heatless match. Inoki is the special guest ref and does nothing of note. Bam Bam might be the original super heavyweight who tries way too hard to be a cruiser weight. He does that silly somersault evasion. He executes a very nice drop toehold but do I really want to see Bigelow. He runs through an enziguiri (teachers pet!), bodyslam drop kick to send Vader out. Bigelow works a boring hold. Vader comes up swinging no transition. He is just like fuck it we are boring them and he beats the shit outta him and shows him how to do a proper super heavyweight drop kick. Vader works boring holds. Choshu totally laid this out as it very symmetric but Bigelow has zero charisma and Vader doesn’t know how to carry a match yet. They trade drop kicks and chest bumps. Bigelow gets a brief flurry. Vader hits a power slam and a lariat to win the match to crickets. Bad match.
