Barbed Wire Board Light Bulb Double Hell Death Match: Shoji Nakamaki & Ryuji Yamakawa vs. Great Kojika & Mitsuhiro Matsunaga. They had light bulbs on the barbed wire boards and Yamakawa got powerbombed off the apron by Matsunaga through one of these boards. Really sick. Yamakawa got some revenge though he helped double suplex Matsunaga through one of these boards that was set up between two chairs.

Yoshihiro Tajiri vs. Rocky Santana. Good match.

Danger Net Circus Death Match: Nakamaki & Yamakawa vs. Kojika & Matsunaga. Yamakawa takes a really sick bump off the scaffold onto the spider net. The thing actually spring back up kind of like a trampoline, but it doesn't shoot him back up in the air or anything though. Matsunaga adds to Yamakawa's injuries by then doing a Hokuto style tope con hilo off the scaffold onto Yamakawa, who's still on the spider net. Yamakawa tops this later in the match taking one of the couple sickest bumps ever when Matsunaga powerbombs him off the scaffold onto two unbreakable tables. Matsunaga also does a splash off the scaffold onto Yamakawa, who is on an unbreakable table. Far from a great match, but the two bumps make it as eventful, or uneventful, as the vaunted Cactus vs. Undertaker Hell in the Cell match.

    Big Japan 4/1/97

Tajiri & Fujita vs. GOKU & Fantastic. Good Lucha match with lots of exciting high spots. Tajiri was really good, and Fantastic turned it on toward the end after blowing spots and looking really out of his league early on.

8000V Shock Death Match: Nakamaki & Yamakawa vs. Matsunaga & Goto. The match took place in the dark with barbed wire boards that contained huge light bulbs in every corner. It was a pretty wild match with something always going on, juice, and some crazy bumps including Matsunaga taking a bump off the top rope onto an elevated barbed wire board. The shocks were basically a dud because you couldn't see or hear the guys getting them, and there was nothing that could even loosely be called build or psychology.
