JWP: Dynamite Kansai & Hikari Fukuoka & Candy Okutsu & Fusayo Nouchi vs. Devil Masami & Mayumi Ozaki & Cuty Suzuki & Hiromi Yagi. Probably the best opening match ever! All action. Kansai, and also Devil, played monster here. Kansai & Ozaki were awesome together, and Candy & Yagi were really good together. ****1/2 to ****3/4

LLPW, Ultimate Rules Match: Shinobu Kandori vs. Harley Saito. Really intense. Very stiff and believable, but too short to amount to much.

AJW: Manami Toyota & Blizzard Yuki vs. Aja Kong & Kyoko Inoue. All kinds of great spots. Submissions between them didn't add much though. Great work, but some sloppiness. ****1/4 to ****1/2

Go Gundan, Alien Death Match for Interpromotional Title: Ryuma Go vs. Uchu Majin Silver X. Really bad match that was way too long. Go was over huge as a cult figure in a Hack Myers kind of way. Either hideously awful or decent depending on if you take this as serious wrestling or comedy. 1/2*

IWA Japan: Terry Funk & Shoji Nakamaki & Leatherface vs. Cactus Jack & The HeadHunters. Nothing but spots, but it was one sick spot after another. Hunters did sandwiched Nakamaki between barbed wire boards and moonsaulted him. Leather actually used the chainsaw. Funk did an Orihara moonsault after the planned finish didn't work. No direction or focus, of course. ***1/2-***3/4

Pancrase: Minoru Suzuki vs. Christopher DeWeaver. Uneventful

PWFG: Yoshiaki Fujiwara & Yuki Ishikawa vs. Carl Greco & Don Arakawa. This was supposed to be shoot wrestling, but Arakawa did the worst "comedy" known to man. Viewing Arakawa's performance may be worse than getting a hot poker up the ass. Ishikawa & Greco did some good serious shooting, but what good did it do when Arakawa would then come in and do the spit spot and Baba chops? 1/4*

Michinoku Pro: Super Delfin & TAKA Michinoku & Gran Naniwa vs. Great Sasuke & SATO & Shiryu. Typical great Michinoku tag match of the time period with the usual spots and comedy. Built well and had head. Smooth work and good pacing. TAKA was very impressive. Tons of cool spots. Sakie is outside the ring wearing a Delfin costume, and Delfin gets to take a bump where his head winds up between her breasts. As always, the final minutes were excellent. **** to ****1/4

RINGS: Akira Maeda vs. Chris Dolman. Dolman was in just about his last match, so he was beyond washed up. Maeda was super over, but after their nothing match, he let Dolman get the pops.

UWF-I: Nobuhiko Takada & Masahito Kakihara & Billy Scott vs. Gary Albright & Kazuo Yamazaki & Gene Lydick. Interesting storyline here in that the most popular wrestler and top star of the promotion, Takada, put himself in the position to get booed by refusing to face Yamazaki. Match was great up to the finish, which came too soon and came off very flat. It's a shame AJ doesn't have a clue how to book Kakihara because he was so much fun to watch in these days, and still could be if they had a clue. Very good.

FMW, Explosive Barbed Wire Match: Great Nita (Onita) vs. King Pogo (Mr. Pogo). The basic excuse for this match being so mediocre is that they weren't allowed to use any fire. Kinda funny when you think about it. Crowd was dead because this took place in a separate ring that very few people had a good angle to see. Onita's offense was really lame. Basically the requisite spots. Mediocre.

AJ: Mitsuharu Misawa & Kenta Kobashi & Stan Hansen vs. Toshiaki Kawada & Akira Taue & Johnny Ace. AJ used to have 6 man tags on this level fairly often, but this was the first great one they had in some time and they haven't done one that's come close to this since. Storyline was better when Jumbo was in this match, but this was very stiff and built well. Closing minutes were excellent and had great heat. Lots of great false finishes. Best men's heavyweight tag match at the Tokyo Dome? ****1/2 to ****3/4

NJ: Shinya Hashimoto vs. Masa Chono. Boring match. I have no idea what these two were thinking doing so little after most of the other promotions went all out to provide great matches.

A great match, as you'd expect. The problem was it was much shorter (16:40) than 10 mans from 10/10/96 or 12/16/96 so it didn't build nearly as well. The pace was incredibly fast though, so that kind of made up for it. Really smooth work, with one great spot after another. The announcer had to talk as fast as Crazy Eddie to keep up with all the action, but unfortunately the fans weren't all that into it until the end. ****1/2

LLPW Match: Eagle Sawai & Michiko Nagashima vs. Kurenai Yasha & Carol Midori. What was shown was typical LLPW and what you'd expect from these four.

Tiger Mask Festival: Shodai Tiger Mask (First generation, Satoru Sayama) & Yon-Dai Tiger (Tiger Mask #4, Michinoku Pro) vs. Ni-dai Tiger (Tiger Mask #2 originally Misawa, but today it was Yoshinobu Kanemaru, AJ) & San-dai Tiger (Tiger Mask #3, Koji Kanemoto, NJ) 12:08. The Great Sasuke, wearing a Black Tiger inspired mask, was the special referee. It was cool seeing all these guys in the ring together, but the match was disappointing. It was way too short and just kind of random. There was some good stuff from Kanemoto vs. 4, but even those two weren't clicking the way you might expect. Koji was the best, but was never as good in this gimmick, and also wasn't nearly as good as usual because he's not used to working with these guys. Tiger #4 looked good and, unlike Koji, was actually willing to sell. Kanemura was the best flyer, trying some really athletic moves, although he didn't always hit them perfectly. It was a huge ask to have a guy who was just starting his second year show up at Sumo Hall and pretend to be Mitsuharu Misawa pretending to be Tiger Mask. Considering all the pressure on him, I felt like he did pretty well, even if he was obviously not a suitable replacement for the man. Sayama didn't look good at all. Overall, some cool spots, but no real rhythm, sloppy in points and didn't build that well, just ending out of nowhere. Kanemoto threatened Sasuke in the middle of the match when he wasn't content with the speed of the count Sasuke was giving him, so Sayama snuck up behind Koji and high kicked him then Tiger 4 gave Koji a German suplex and Sasuke did a super fast count, but Koji still kicked out. After the match, Koji and Sasuke went at it. **1/2

WAR Tag Match: Genichiro Tenryu & Arashi vs. Mitsuharu (aka Koji) Kitao & Masaaki Mochizuki. Good match when Tenryu was in with Mochizuki, but Tenryu didn't sell much for him. *1/2

UWF Match: Super Tiger (Sayama) vs. Yoshiaki Fujiwara. This was a bizarre match. It kept getting out of control and the ref stopped it, but they wrestlers kept going at it so it would up with Inoki taking over for the ref who couldn't keep it under control. Still it was out of hand. I think time eventually runs out.

High Tension Powerful War: TAKA Michinoku & Asian Cougar vs. Masao Orihara & Palomino. Lightning pace. There were like 5 Michinoku driver II's in the first 2:15. The problem was they got off to such a hot start that the match ended up tailing off instead of building. The ending was the worst part with TAKA nearly killing himself slipping off the top rope while trying his quebrada and the finish being blown. Overall it was a really exciting match with a typically awesome performance from TAKA, particularly when he was in with fellow punk Orihara. Cougar was very impressive as well. ***3/4

Dick Togo & MEN'S Teio & Sho Funaki vs. Tarzan Goto & Masashi Aoyagi & Azteca. It was a good match when Azteca was in, but Scroto having an ego trip really took it down. Scroto wouldn't sell for KDX, just dominated Togo, beating him Bloody. KDX won, but Scroto made sure we all knew he was far superior to them, and also beat them up after the match. All of this made their win totally worthless. On the bright side, this was the best wrestling I've seen from Azteca. **

Strong Style Six Man Tag Match: Yoshiaki Fujiwara & Ryuma Go & Tatsuo Nakano vs. Yoshiaki Yatsu & Hiroshi Itakura & Shigeo Okumura. Bad and boring. The two guys that might have been able to save it, Okumura and Nakano, didn't play a very big role in the match. 1/2*

The beginning of this tape is kind of dull with one of those histories of puroresu that we can't understand and interviews, although there are a lot of cool flying moves in between the interviews. It gets good when they set up equipment on a dummy to gauge how hard Hashimoto is kicking. Their results show that Sasaki's lariat and a baseball bat hitting the dummy register 40G (I guess this is grams?) of pressure, but Hashimoto's kicks are 55G.

Daisuke Ikeda & Alexander Otsuka vs. Yuki Ishikawa & Minoru Tanaka. This looked like a really good Battlarts match with great exectution, all the big spots and near falls, etc, except they only showed 9:31 of a draw so that has to make you wonder.

Super Delfin & Jinsei Shinzaki vs. Hayabusa & Tsubasa. Work and spots. The match didn't build, but Hayabusa & Tsubasa were really on and did all kinds of cool moves. ***1/4

Super Techniques-This was the highlight of the tape, IMO. They spent 50 minutes showing pretty much every move that's somewhat regularly been used in New Japan with some indy guys thrown in. They divided all the moves up by section (ie submissions are together, throws are together). Within the move, they'd also show the variations of the move (reverse, off the top rope, etc.) if there were any. If you can read Japanese and want to know the names of the moves then this segment makes the tape a must.

If you are looking for good technical wrestling, avoid this tape like the plague. If you are looking for something ridiculous and kinda funny then you might want to give this a try. This is the weirdest wrestling I've ever seen from Japan. They wrestle on gym mats in a small school gym before crowds of less than 50. There are some quasi-shoot style matches on the undercard, but the focus is on Survival Tobita trying to fend off these ridiculous looking monsters. His most notable opponent is Mokojin Ken, who is supposed to be a walking tree. Ken is sometimes referred to as Ken The Box because his costume is a bunch of boxes with "tree leaves" wrapped around his body garlin style. Basically he's one big box with a hole for his head and two holes for his arms, but his head has a box and his arms have two boxes so he can bend at the elbows. Everything else is under the main box so he cannot bend over, resulting in his only offense being punches that Tobita puts over huge. It would be the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen in a wrestling ring, except they don't use a ring!

Ikuto Hidaka vs. Asian Cougar. Good match with crisp execution. Lots of athletic spots, but also some good submission wrestling with Hidaka using both styles to attack Cougar's knee and set up his Shawn capture finisher. Cougar finds the most interesting ways to utilize the ropes. At one point Hidaka was leaning on the apron and Cougar reentered the ring by slingshotting over and turning 180 degrees in midair so he could come down with a dropkick to Hidaka's arm. ***1/4

Kaori Nakayama vs. Azumi Hyuga. Nakayama's offense has definitely improved, and this was a good opportunity to show it. Unfortunately, sometimes she couldn't follow Azumi, at least not quick enough. The thing with Nakayama is she's much better at single moves than sequences. If she could improve her sequences she could be a spectacular worker, but right now she's someone with some excellent that can't hang with a wrestler of Azumi's quality work wise. Azumi didn't give Nakayama too much respect because of this. Nonetheless, Azumi is such a good worker that it can't be too bad a match when you stick her in with a wrestler that also has some spectacular moves. The highlight was Nakayama countering Azumi's nadare shiki no doublearm suplex with a sunset flip powerbomb into a jackknife hold. **1/4

Nishida & MIKAMI vs. Tomohiro Ishii & Takashi Sasaki. MIKAMI vs. Sasaki was good, of course. Nishida & Ishii were unimpressive though and Psychic interfered too much. The horrendous finish was right out of 80's American wrestling, except the match was ruled a no contest rather than a DQ. *1/2

Hideki Nishida & MIKAMI vs. Tomohiro Ishii & Psychic. Sasaki didn't help Ishii & Psychic beat the opposition up after the match, so they stomped him and had another match without him. This match was too short to amount to anything though.

Royal Rumble Scramble Bunkhouse All Anything Hazard 6 Man Street Fight Match: Atsushi Onita & Hideki Hosaka & Dick Togo vs. Tomoaki Honma & Hido & Shoji Nakamaki. This isn't my type of match; just a bunch of gimmick spots. Bloody chaos with Honma being the only one that did any wrestling. *.

Masato Tanaka & Jado & Gedo vs. Shinjiro Otani & Naohiro Hoshikawa & Kohei Sato. They didn't show all their moves, but for ass kicking from start to finish this was pretty much top notch. Everyone was stiff, but none of these guys come close to Hoshikawa when it comes to intensity. Hoshikawa is probably the best right now at incorporating speed and athleticism into a stiff and precise striking style. He carried his team with Otani not wrestling too many minutes and Sato being the weak link. Tanaka looked really good in a straight match, fighting AJ style. Jado & Gedo came to fight and were solid. I'd rank Otani as the 5th best in the match, although he was good when he actually wrestled. ***1/2

-1hr. Near Perfect 1st Gen

JWP Opening Special Bout: Kayuko Haruyama vs. Kobina Ichikawa.
Michael Smith: The work itself wasn't bad for an opener. However, Kobina's lame attempts at comedy make her come off as an androgynous version of Bolshoi Kid, only worse. She has decent speed and ability, but if she's going to be almost total comic relief then she should at least try to be original. Haruyama looked okay here. Nothing special, but she showed more than I ever thought she would a few years ago when she was as bad as it gets as a rookie. *

Wacky FINAL COUNTDOWN: Takako Inoue vs. Miho Wakizawa.
MS: Considering that this was Takako's show and they were only going 5 minutes (granted, they were having another very short match following this and Takako was in the main event as well) you would think they'd do more than they did here. Instead they basically killed 4 minutes by doing a lot of minimal stuff (punches, kicks, and basic submissions) and then tried to end it with some near falls, only one of which, Takako's destiny hammer, was effective. Miho's last pin attempt (as the bell rang) was a weak German suplex that she couldn't keep the bridge on. The tag match somewhat saved this though if you include both together.

Takako Inoue & Momoe Nakanishi vs. Kayo Noumi & Miho Wakizawa.
MS: Miho did some mic work to set this up. When Takako accepted the challenge of MihoKayo it was kind of amusing because Momoe tried to hide from her vision by crouching low at ringside. Both Kayo and Momoe wrestled in their seconds attire - sneakers, shorts, and a t-shirt. The match itself was fun because Momoe immediately turned on Takako but kept apologizing for it. Basically this was a fast paced 90 second squash that culminated with Miho getting the win with a fisherman's buster. Afterwards, they did some comedy where Takako shook Miho and Kayo's hands but playfully smacked Momoe when shaking hers. They all enjoyed themselves here and that's all that was attempted and needed.

Sachie Abe vs. Chaparrita ASARI.
MS: Neither woman did much. ASARI mainly did a couple of decent submissions, throwing in a plancha and bad looking top rope hurancanrana (due more to Abe's bad bump off it then it being Chaparrita's fault). Sachie's main offense consisted of using a straw thing that looked like a broom head and a couple of good looking highspots. Her problem though is that she looks lost in the ring half the time and her selling is so bad that she'd be hard pressed to unload a dollar for 75 cents. Maybe it's her seemingly bubbly personality, but she was smiling and slightly giggling most of the time ASARI had her in a submission. Otherwise her highspots looked solid, but she didn't have anything else. They aired about half the match and didn't make it look better by clipping it. *1/4

Kaoru Ito vs. Miyuki Fujii.
MS: What aired was what you'd expect. Ito dominated when she wanted to and Fujii didn't look good with what little she did. Ito gave her two kickouts on pins following a couple of strong clotheslines, but not much else.

W Inoue Debut 13th Anniversary Memorial Match: Manami Toyota & Takako Inoue vs. Kyoko Inoue & Yoshiko Tamura.
MS: Manami (especially) and Takako worked hard to try to make Kyoko look good. Manami even did a flip bump on a Kyoko clothesline. Tamura wasn't involved that much as the match progressed, but she did have an elongated sequence with Manami where they traded near falls. The two best attempts were Tamura's - a top rope doublewrist armsault and a doublearm DDT that followed. The problem they had though was that both women had trouble lifting each other and keeping the bridges on their German suplexes (they had a back and forth of pin attempts with these). After this Tamura was only in the ring to either break up pins on Kyoko or stop Manami from saving Takako. Not too far from a good match (probrably partially due to be chopped by 4 minutes), but it wasn't realized because the NEO women couldn't match Manami and Takako's effort. **1/2

Shinjuku Same vs. Kazumasa Nihei. Even Same does a better shining wizard than Muto. Otherwise this was hideous though. Bad deliberate wrestling with too many distractions from Same's scaredy cat valet. 1/4*

Bio-Monster DNA & Onryo vs. Poison Sawada & Jun Kasai. It's hard to decide who is goofier, but Kasai is definitely a much better wrestler than Poison. Sadly Kasai was the best wrestler in the match since Onryo did nothing. Poison vs. DNA was some kind of awful. The big comedy segment had Poison slipping on his partner's banana peel and a pissed Naomi Susan waving her rattle at Kasai. Later Poison tied Kasai's tail to the ropes and finished DNA himself then he and Naomi beat on Kasai until he got his tail free. Poor. 6:47 shown

Chocoball Mukai & NOSAWA vs. Sanshiro Takagi & Takashi Sasaki. Takagi seemed to wrestle up to his ability and Sasaki was typically good. I liked what I saw here. 3:03 shown

Manami Toyota vs. Kumiko Maekawa. Sometimes they weren't on the same page when Maekawa was kicking. Otherwise it looked like a good match with flying and suplexes vs. nasty kicks. Toyota did a cross between a captured and northern lights suplex. 3:20 shown

Rumi Kazama & Eagle Sawai vs. Harley Saito & Norio Tateno. Why is LLPW coming on after AJW, especially a good Toyota singles match? Anyway, this seemed like an adequate match largely due to Harley who actually even tried to wrestle Eagle. 2:57 shown

Mitsuharu Misawa & Yoshinari Ogawa vs. Tamon Honda & Masao Inoue. Work was fine, but as you'd expect Misawa didn't go out of his way everyone knew Honda's team had no chance. Okay. 9:13 shown

Akira Taue vs. Tetsuhiro Kuroda. Taue did fine carrying the match, but he's slowed down a lot so he's pretty deliberate. Kuroda was fiery, but as always it was just lariat after lariat from him. Wasn't a squash, but Kuroda wasn't portrayed as being in Taue's class. **

Vader vs. Kintaro Kanemura. This was a squash, and that made it boring. Kanemura made a very brief comeback with a table, but Vader wound up chokeslamming him through it. Kanemura was jobbed out, only being able to put Vader down once. *1/2

Atsushi Onita & The Great Sasuke vs. Shinya Hashimoto & Shinjiro Otani. Started out fine with Sasuke vs. Otani, but then Onita tagged in and forced Hashimoto to tag in. Onita proceeded to stall for 2 minutes by circling around the ring. when he finally locked up he was DQ'd for spewing Hashimoto. Pandemonium broke loose in the ring, but the match was eventually restarted with Sasuke doing a tope con hilo with Otani on a table. Luckily Sasuke totally carried his team. The problem is while Sasuke & Hashimoto are two of the better wrestlers in their respective weight classes, Hashimoto's gimmick dictates that he must destroy the little man the whole time. Eventually Onita fireballed Otani for a second DQ and another huge brawl in the ring. Some of the wrestling was good, you know when it didn't involve Onita. I could have lived with the first stupid finish because they restarted it, but two terrible finishes was ridiculous. **
