RINGS MEGA BATTLE '96 FINALS - 1/22/97 (Excellent show to wrap up the outstanding 1996 Mega Battle tournament. You get a couple of excellent undercard matches and then a Han/Tamura showdown in the main event. I've got a conversion of a VHS master, so VQ Is EX.)
Wataru Sakata vs Sean McCully (clipped) Grom Zaza vs Masayuki Naruse Tsuyoshi Kohsaka vs Mikhail Ilioukhine (Good match - ***) Mitsuya Nagai vs Nikolai Zouev (Beautiful spinning reverse high kick knockdown for Zouev - awesome!) Akira Maeda vs Maurice Smith Bitsadze Tariel vs Yoshihisa Yamamoto Volk Han vs Kiyoshi Tamura (Finals - another excellent match between these two, though again disappointing in that it's too short and almost seems like a spotfest rather than an actual contest. Lots of fun anyway though.)
