Akira Hokuto & Kyoko Inoue vs. Aja Kong & Bison Kimura 7:38 of 17:14. AJW smartly sent Aja & Bison to W*ING, a perfect place for them to greatly outshine their male counterparts & show themselves to be two of the most talented brawlers of their era. One thing they do right that mostly everyone else does wrong is the way they brawl around the arena. It works for Jungle Jack because they do it fast & aggressively, there's a wildness to it, a feeling of out of control rage & violence that has them dragging their opponent until they can find something metal that suits their fancy to bash them into. They also get in & get out, which is the biggest key because as soon as you have the wrestlers wasting time out there (standing around, playing to the crowd, generally meandering) as you'd see in say an AAA brawl, the whole feeling is lost & it just winds up in the things to do category, we're just brawling because we're always supposed to do some brawling. This was totally a showcase for Jungle Jack, who were firing on & in fact with all cylinders. Hokuto had an eye injury, so Kyoko played the more prominent role. They made several brief but spectacular comebacks, popping the crowd with a nice move & showing energy & fire to make us believe they were still very much in the match, despite invariably getting cut off moments later. To an extent they got their offense in, it's more that they never felt competitive because they were just getting run over a moment later. If you were expecting a variation on the great Jungle Jack vs. Bull & Kyoko brawl from 1/11/91, this isn't it despite Kyoko showing some of the chemistry that made that match so good & everyone being better overall wrestlers with another year experience. However, it's a really fun midcard match, especially on a promotion that isn't known for high level work, that had everything that usually made an AJW match of the period good, the fast pace, high workrate, generally great work, etc. as well as high level brawling. It's just a shame that W*ING cut half the match out to fit the show into an hour & AJW was so concerned with featuring their brawlers they forgot Hokuto was their biggest star in the match & Kyoko was one of the most promising rising stars in the world, giving us something that didn't have much drama because it was seemingly so one-sided. ***1/4 range

-1 1/2hr. Q=Master

3/20/93

Undercard highlights

No Rope Barbed Wire Net Tag Death Match: Mitsuhiro Matsunaga & Jason The Terrible vs. Leatherface & Freddy Krueger. Few wrestling moves, but it delivers the weapons. Quinones kept yelling "scrape hs head (on the cage) like a lettuce." All things considered, it wasn't really that bloody though. Not really wrestling, just garbage.

5/5/93

Undercard highlights

Ishu Kakutogisen: The Winger vs. Jun Kikawada. Just awful because it was so fake looking. Winger's kicks were at 3/4 speed. 1/2 shown

Yukihiro Kanemura & Miguel Perez, Jr. & Jason The Terrible vs. Crash The Terminator & Bash The Terminator & Goliath El Gigante (Kurrgan). 3:51 shown

Texas Death Match: Mr. Pogo vs. Shoji Nakamaki. This was around the prime of their garbage careers, so it was actually pretty good. Nakamaki took almost all the big moves, as always. Pogo sandwhiched him between chairs and did a diving body press for a fall. Later he piledrove then bulldogged him on the chairs. 7:18 shown

W*ING Nintei Tag Oza Kettei Tournament Ikkaisen: Texano & Silver King vs. The Head Hunters. I really liked what I saw from this match because it was so stiff you could hear every blow. Unfortunately, it was edited to the point of not having any continuity. King bled. 5:11 shown

Human Flower Arrangement Spike Nail Death Match: Mitsuhiro Matsunaga vs. Leatherface. Matsunaga bled quickly. You could see Leatherface was looking to end the match quickly, which got the fans reacted to the early spike teases. Matsunaga's striking was pretty good at this point, so his offense was much more interesting than in later years. Leatherface displayed his usual level of "talent," mainly hitting Matsunaga with spike nail boards. After the match, we see a closeup of his stomach and it was legitimately full of punctures. The last few minutes were the best with the finisher being pretty nice in it's simple way that stayed in tone with the rest of the match. The previous two matches seemed better though.
