Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 2 hrs (DVD)

RINGS FIGHTING INTEGRATION 4TH - 6/27/98 (Not the greatest show ever but a solid one nonetheless. I've got a VHS master convert, so VQ is EX.)
Yasuhito Namekawa vs Troy Ittensohn Willie Peeters vs Wataru Sakata (On the finish, Sakata breaks the hold late and Peeters vehemently protests - that the hold was illegal. Apparently by this point, RINGS has banned the heel hook. Of course, the hold wasn't a heel hook. Weird.) Hiromitsu Kanehara vs Sander Mac Kiljan Hans Nyman vs Vladimir Klementiev Masayuki Naruse vs Kenichi Yamamoto Kiyoshi Tamura vs Tsuyoshi Kohsaka (Match of the Year, Best Shoot-style Match Ever, Best RINGS Match Ever - you name it, I've heard this match called all of those things. It's none of those things. It's good, but not great, and not even close to the legendary status it's been granted.)
