SWS STRAIGHT AND STRONG Commencement of War '90 YOKOHAMA ARENA 1990-18,19 October Commercial Tape
-1 1/2hr. Q=Master

10/18/90 Kanagawa Yokohama Arena

Undercard digest

Tag Tournament Final: Genichiro Tenryu & The Great Kabuki vs. George Takano & Shunji Takano. Not much different from what these guys did in All Japan. It was stiff, solid, hard fought, and unspectacular. Tenryu & George carried it. Tenryu brought intensity to the match, while George brought a lot of fire and energy. The match was not that long for a final (the semifinals were earlier in the night) and the finish was more surprising than convincing, but overall it was quite good because of the team leaders. ***1/4

10/19/90 Kanagawa Yokohama Arena

Undercard digest

Genichiro Tenryu vs. George Takano. Takano was still trying to wrestle like a junior and Tenryu followed suit. I appreciated a lot of what they were trying to do, but the execution left something to be desired. The structuring of the match was quite good though. Tenryu did as much as he could to get the fans to believe in Takano. It was also an entertaining match, so with Takano being shown to have a chance it was easy to see why the fans could get so into it. Takano provides a lot more action than Tenryu's other SWS opponents. He even did three different dives, for instance. Tenryu did some flying as well as selling for Takano a lot and eventually giving Takano his usual ass kicking. The psychology wasn't great, but all the big spots made up for it for the most part. It seemed a little contrived at times, but even if it wasn't the smartest match the idea of what they were going for was good. ***3/4
