Quality: EX (1st Gen Convert)

Length: 2.25 hrs (DVD)

UWFI - 1/16/95 (By this point in their history, UWFI was coming down after the high of their awesome run in 1993/94. The quality of the shows began to dip just a bit and the crowds weren't quite as hot. This is a pretty good show, highlighted by the "dream" match of Vader vs Albright and a terrific tag match. I've got a 1st gen convert, so quality is EX.)
??? vs ??? (kickboxing) Kenichi Yamamoto vs Hiromitsu Kanehara (Incredible - a 15-0 squash!) Yoshihiro Takayama vs Thomas Burton Bad News Allen vs Tatsuo Nakano (Weird - Bad News submits to a leg hold repeatedly by saying "yeah" but the ref doesn't stop the match. They roll into another hold and Allen again submits. This time, the ref stops it.) Yoji Anjoh & Masahito Kakihara vs Naoki Sano vs Kazushi Sakuraba (***1/2!) Kiyoshi Tamura vs Gene Lydick (Lydick does a VERY impressive German suplex, lifting Tamura off his hands and knees and throwing him, all in one motion.) Nobuhiko Takada & Billy Scott vs Kazuo Yamazaki & James Stone (The fans, who had been dead up to this point, heat up immediately for the Takada/Yamazaki confrontation. Yamazaki dominates it, then - literally - the match is over less than 2 minutes later. WTF? That's just bad booking guys!) Vader vs Gary Albright (Vader stiffs Gary several times, but this is overall pretty disappointing since each guy negates the other's strength.)
