Junior Tag League highlights

Junior Tag League Match: Shuji Kondo & "brother" YASSHI vs. Kaz Hayashi & TAKA Michinoku 9:27 of 13:17. Effective, well structured story match with diabolical Voodoo Murderers dominating through ignoring sportsmanship. Unfortunately, Hayashi was the only wrestler that was good. Hayashi & TAKA had a fast start, but sinister Kondo irrevocably altered the contest by bashing TAKA's broken finger with his staff, causing Hayashi to have to go alone while TAKA was attended to in the locker room. Not only was it now a handicap match, but Murderers constantly double teamed Hayashi, instilling a sense of urgency, as he had to come up with something to end the match before he was too damaged. Hayashi had some explosive counters, but, of course, was mainly destroyed. A severely limited TAKA did eventually make it back to the ring when Hayashi finally made a comeback, his right hand and wrist so heavily taped he could do little more than clasp just facelock. TAKA set up a quebrada, but Kondo pulled him off the apron and once again slugged TAKA's hand with the staff, putting him out of commission for good and sealing Hayashi's fate. **1/2

Keiji Muto & Yutaka Yoshie vs. Kensuke Sasaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima 17:27 of 24:00. Sasaki had pink hair and tights to make fun of Yoshie. Yoshie was all effort, and Sasaki's match fits well into what little he can do. He had good chop exchanges with Kensuke and took Nakajima's kicks. That may be the extent of Yoshie's abilities, but irregardless, the match was much better when he was in because he actually allowed Sasaki & Nakajima to do their thing. Muto was pretty much on offense the entire time. There was one good spot where he did his worn out knee routine to Sasaki, but Nakajima stopped the figure 4 with Muto's own shining wizard. Otherwise, it was pretty routine. **3/4
