TAPE 254

Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 2.1 hrs (DVD)

UWFI - 12/25/96 (Next-to-last UWFI show ever. Some good matches, but hurt by a crowd with no enthusiasm whatsoever. I've got a master convert so quality is EX.)
Yuki ??? vs ??? Kazushi Sakuraba vs Hiromitsu Kanehara (Really good match) Yoshihiro Takayama vs Kenichi Yamamoto Naoki Sano vs Masahito Kakihara Nobuhiko Takada & James Stone vs Yoji Anjoh & Billy Scott (Wanna know why UWFI failed? This match is a perfect example of why. It's the main event and you've got two guys who, while good wrestlers, don't belong there: Stone & Scott. Then you've got another guy - Anjoh - who should've been moved down the card by this time. Then, the young talents like Sakuraba and Kanehara are working early undercard matches. Frustrating.)
