Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 3 hrs (2 DVD)

UWFI - 12/5/93 (The biggest show ever in the history of the UWFI, held in an outdoor stadium in front of over 40,000 fans, this tape features the incredibly historic first Vader/Takada match. There are several other good or better matches as well. This is a great tape that's a must-have for any shoot-style fan. I've got a master convert so quality is perfect!)
Bad News Allen vs Kazushi Sakuraba Gene Lydick vs Tom Burton Hiromitsu Kanehara vs Greg Bobchuk Yoshihiro Takayama vs Tommy Cairo (former ECW scrub Cairo looks just as out of place as you'd imagine. Takayama enjoys himself inthis very fast squash...) Masahito Kakihara vs Tatsuo Nakano Naoki Sano & Yuko Miyato vs Kazuo Yamazaki & Mark Silver Billy Scott vs Yoji Anjoh Kiyoshi Tamura vs Dennis Koslowski Gary Albright & Dan Severn vs Salman Hashimikov & Vladimir Berkovich (***3/4 - *SUPER* heat for this match between two teams that legitimately dislike each other. Great stuff!) NOBUHIKO TAKADA VS VADER (Historic match, as Vader comes into the match as WCW World Heavyweight champion, while Takada is the UWFI champion. They do it up right, too, with pomp and ceremony lending an incredible aura to the proceedings. Off the charts stiff, these guys just kick the crap out of each other. The finish comes when Takada legit breaks Vader's arm with a cross armbreaker. A surreal scene follows as they hold the post-match ceremony declaring Takada "the undisputed world wrestling champion" - while Vader is *SCREAMING* in pain on the mat. A must-see!)
