U-STYLE TV 4/19/03 2nd taped 4/6 Tokyo Differ Ariake
-2hr. Q=TV Master

Hiroyuki Ito vs. Tomohiko Yoshida 7:23. Ito was far superior to his inexperienced opponent to the point it wasn't much of a match. He made some good moves, but everything came too easily and Yoshida's main defense was the rope escape. *

Ryu Echigo vs. Manabu Hara 15:00. Echigo is a suplex guy, while Hara seems to like the flying knee and high kick. They showed fire and intensity, particularly in the key moments when they had a flurry of action. It was too long given their inexperience so they weren't able to sustain things, but it had it's moments and was good enough to keep you interested. **1/2

Naoki Kimura vs. Katsuhisa Fujii 2:09. Fujii is very aggressive and shows potential. Kimura thinks he's all big and bad, but hits as gay as he looks.

Takehiro Murahama vs. Kyosuke Sasaki 8:49. They did something different here, staying away from the big moves through a kind of extended feeling out period where they always kept just far enough out of range. That sound boring but it was anything but. They managed to find credible ways to miss and then from time to time they'd perform an explosive sequence at lightning speed. They even credibly worked in a little story of Murahama trying to go for pro wrestling moves. Sasaki did enough, particularly early on to make himself credible, though like many a UWF-I match it was undermined by his standing not being nearly what Murahama's is. Sasaki looked very promising. ***1/4

Wataru Sakata vs. Kazuki Okubo 8:42. Okubo shows his inexperience, and Sakata was quite content with just beating him up. Okubo was never in the match, and his striking is pretty weak (not crisp or precise). Usually Sakata's one of the better guys at getting more out of less, but today he just looked sharp offensively. *1/2

Kiyoshi Tamura vs. Dokonjonosuke Mishima 10:06. Mishima is a world class shorter and an excellent athlete, but he's got no experience working. Of course it helps to be going against the best, but he certainly showed potential. He seemed unsure when to attack sometimes and oversold badly once, but with this opposition there was no problem putting him right in the main event. Tamura wasn't able to develop the match as much and went through the points a lot quicker than he likes, but the quality was consistently good. Mishima did a cool kick where he started to do a cartwheel so he could kick Tamura in the head. ***
