TAPE 299

Quality: EX (1st Gen Convert)

Length: 2.5 hrs (DVD)

ALL JAPAN SUMMER ACTION SERIES II '99 (Commercial Tape; Much better than Summer Action Series I '99, this is a very good tape. Lots of solid action. I've got a 1st gen convert so quality is EX!)
Hiro Hase vs Akira Taue, 9/4/99 (I've said it before, I'll say it again: Hase needs to wrestle full-time - this guy is great!) Mitsuhara Misawa vs Yoshihiro Takayama, 9/4/99 (Bit of an interesting match as Takayama TOTALLY dominates Misawa throughout, just pounding on him constantly. Misawa barely gets in any offense until the end and then it's only elbows and a Tiger Driver - not good at all. Takayama has all the makings of a superstar, IF he can speed up his offense and correct his horrible selling. Give him another year and see where he's at then.) Kenta Kobashi vs Gladiator, 9/4/99 (Good, but a bit disappointing) Vader vs Mitsuhara Misawa, 9/4/99 (After getting killed by Takayama, Misawa wrestles a second time in a non-title match with Vader and gets squashed in 7 minutes.) JUN AKIYAMA VS TAKAO OMORI, 9/4/99 (YES! The young guns of AJ hook it up in this terrific **** match. Akiyama might just be the best heavyweight in the world outside of Chris Benoit and Omori is terrific here.) Yoshihiro Takayama & Takao Omori vs Mitsuhara Misawa & Yoshinari Ogawa, 8/25/99 (***3/4 - Misawa & Ogawa win Triple Crown tag titles - Sorry Internet-marks, but Ogawa stinks.) Yoshinari Ogawa vs Too Cold Scorpio, 8/30/99 (clips) Vader vs Hiro Hase, 8/30/99 (clipped)
