Jd' Coming to Tokyo Commercial Tape 4/14/96 Tokyo Velfarre
-2hr. Q=Master

Sachie Abe vs. Aya Koyama. Standard rookie match. They didn't do anything of note, but as far as we could see didn't screw up. 4:18 of 15:00

The Bloody Phoenix & Nana Fujimura vs. Flor Metalica & Lady Connors. A passable match carried by the Mexicans. Flor looked decent, making her the only Metalica that did anything worthwhile since '88. Connors kind of had an idea what she wanted to do, but seemed to lack the physical ability to quite pull it off. 7:37 of 9:11

Chikako Shiratori & Xochilt Hamada vs. Cooga & Esther Moreno. Shiratori vs. Moreno was pretty good. Shiratori had attitude, and Esther was using her athleticism for smaller things like kip-ups she wouldn't mess up that look good. Had the typical Jd' problem where even though the spots aren't blown, they are done a lot better in other places. Cooga was passable but frustrating because she should step up and carry a match like this, but she isn't even aggressive. Xochilt just doesn't do anything well. 16:08 of 20:28.

Jaguar Yokota vs. Lioness Asuka. Started out with their perpetual motion stuff, but quickly became submission oriented. Initially, this portion was shoot oriented stuff where you had to be cautious trying to make your move, you couldn't just magically apply your submission like most matches. Unfortunately, it switched to more traditional stuff once they broke the ice. The first 15 minutes were mainly slower paced and less spot oriented then the final 5 had all the great moves. Lioness dominated, of course, with Jaguar mainly getting her offense off counters. The tamest and most conservative match I can remember these two having, probably in large part because having not wrestled all year they were rusty. Their styles and strengths play to each other so well, and they have tremendous familiarity and chemistry, so even a less than stellar performance results in a damn good match. 20:04 of 20:44. ***1/2

Shukan Puroresu Presents Velfarre Special Match: Bison Kimura vs. Manami Toyota. These two are too talented not to have a good match, but their styles didn't mesh well and they never developed any drama. Bison & Toyota were given a bouquet of flowers by a Shukan reporter. Bison attacked with her flowers while Manami was recieving them, leading to a strong start where she controlled with submissions and punishing chops. Toyota did Bison's submission style to an extent, but other than it taking longer to get to the spots this basically looked like the typical Toyota match. Toyota was fairly sloppy once they started doing spots at 10:00, screwing up a few of her counters to the point she wasn't able to pull anything off. Toyota's Japanese ocean bomb starts off like a Tigerdriver, but she brings her opponent up to thunderfire powerbomb position still holding the doublearm then slams them like a Ligerbomb. 17:43. ***

Highlights of the 8 woman tournament to crown the first Trans-World Wrestling Federation world champion. Interspersed are segments with the two Jd' representatives, Bison & Shiratori, sightseeing in Mexico, where the tournament took place.

Jd' Beauty Athlete Commercial Tape 7/30/96 Tokyo Korakuen Hall
-1 1/2hr. Q=Master

Chikako Shiratori & Mima Shimoda (AJW) vs. Jaguar Yokota & Yuko Kosugi. Veterans Yokota & Shimoda led Shiratori & Kosugi through the match. The match was competent, but Yokota vs. Shimoda was the only pairing that could really be good, and there wasn't enough of that because they wanted to make Shiratori & Kosugi look as good as possible. Shiratori was decent, but Kosugi, who debuted earlier in the night, really couldn't do much. Considering how long the match was, it was pretty impressive that it held up as well as it did. They did a good job of walking the line between keeping it basic and delivering a main event calibre match. **1/2

Fresh Battle: Yuko Kosugi vs. Sachie Abe. Kosugi's debut. Clip.

New Wave Battle: Aya Koyama vs. Kazumi Yanu. Clip.

Esther Moreno & Alda Moreno vs. Neftaly & Princess Blanca. 5 ½ minutes were shown, but what was shown looked great. The Morenos were actually hitting all their flying moves. I'm sure it was much worse unedited, but...

Cooga vs. The Bloody Phoenix. 3 min shown.

The Crushing Spirits: Lioness Asuka vs. Yuki Lee. Lioness did a real good job of carrying Lee. Lee wasn't credible against her though, so it was too short to amount to much. **

Lioness Asuka vs. Yuki Lee. This was a bit better than the previous match because Lee showed more heart here coming back from practically being "knocked unconscious." **1/2

REAL DOG FIGHT: Bison Kimura vs. Li Fua (Jaguar Yokota) 13:37. A quality brawl that could have been a really high quality wrestling match if they scrapped Jaguar's odd gimmick and just had a regular match. Bison was her normal quality self, but Jaguar did an odd mix of brawling and martial arts, going Abdullah The Butcher on Bison's head at the outset to bust her open then working her over with spinning kicks. Jaguar was a bit mechanical, but did a few cool moves such as a moonsault attack off the elevation for the cheap seats and a somersault missile kick. They executed well, but the action didn't flow as well as it should have. After the match, Jaguar cut her head so she could drip blood on Bison. **1/2
