Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 2.5 hrs (DVD)

UWFI - 8/17/96 (Commercial tape; Not exactly the best UWFI show you'll ever find, but the last three matches are good ones. Sorry, there's some guys in the first few matches I just don't recognize. I've got a master convert quality is PERFECT)
Kenichi Yamamoto vs ??? Hiromitsu Kanehara vs Tiger Madeiro (sp?) Great Kabuki, ??? & ??? vs Gecko, Shigeo Okumura, & ??? (After this match, you get to see Great Kabuki without his face paint, which was just unthinkable in the 1980s. Then, as a further treat, you get to see Tiger Mask *PUT ON* his mask before his match. Cool stuff.) Gran Hamada vs Tiger Mask Sayama Kimo vs Yoshihiro Takayama (This one's a legit shoot, but I'm not sure Takayama knew ahead of time it would be. Kimo takes him down easily and then DRILLS Takayama in the eye area with a headbutt, opening up a cut that gushes right away. Takayama taps shortly after and looks pretty pissed after the match.) Masahito Kakihara vs Kazushi Sakuraba Genichiro Tenryu vs Naoki Sano (Good match - Tenryu repeatedly hits Sano in the face with shoot punches.) Nobuhiko Takada vs Yoji Anjoh
