ALL JAPAN NEW YEAR'S GIANT SERIES '00 (This is a great tape! Several good or excellent matches, really really good stuff here. One of the better AJ tapes you'll find. I've got a 1st gen convert so quality is EX.)
Vader vs Jun Akiyama, 1/23/00 (***) Mitsuharu Misawa vs Hiro Hase, 1/9/00 (Hase, who wrestles like 5 times a year, carries Misawa and his retarded selling to ***1/2 in this one. Hase works over Misawa's right arm very creatively throughout the match only to have Misawa ignore the "damage" and continue to use his right arm right up to the finish. Stupid.) Kenta Kobashi & Jun Akiyama vs Vader & Johnny Smith, 1/10/00 (JIP) KENTA KOBASHI VS TOSHIAKI KAWADA, 1/17/00 (****1/4) Mitsuharu Misawa & Jun Akiyama vs Vader & Akira Taue, 1/17/00 Toshiaki Kawada & Akira Taue vs Yoshihiro Takayama & Takao Omori, 1/23/00
