TAPE 412

Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 2.5 hrs (DVD)

UWFI "E=MC2" - 3/17/92 (Great tape! Several excellent matches here, including an outstanding Silver/Kakihara match. This one holds a bit of a special place for me as I also have a program from this show and now I finally have the tape. I've got a master convert so quality is perfect.)
Masakazu Maeda vs Hiromitsu Kanehara (*** - terrific match) MARK SILVER VS MASAHITO KAKIHARA (Excellent match that goes the full 30 minutes. At the end of the match, with the time limit approaching, both guys open up and begin throwing heavy strikes. Kakihara lands an uppercut that DRILLS Silver in the nose, busting him open big-time. Ya know, I gotta think that UWFI blew it by not pushing guys like Kakihara, Kanehara, and Tamura up to the top of the card harder and better.) Thomas Burton vs Tatsuo Nakano (The previous two matches both were in the 20-30 minute range, as is this one. However, and I'm as big a Nakano mark as you'll ever find, I don't wanna see these guys going 26+ minutes. No way.) Yoji Anjoh & Mark Fleming vs Kiyoshi Tamura & Yuko Miyato (Another excellent, long match! This one's ***1/2. Man, this show rocks!) Nobuhiko Takada vs Steve Day (Who is Steve Day? Well, he's a Dan Severn lookalike, minus all of Dan's incredible charisma. OK, that's sarcasm, but you get the idea. Not bad, Takada has nothing to work with here.) Gary Albright vs Kazuo Yamazaki (Short but good match that sees Albright get over as a killer threat to Takada by having him destroy the #2 native, Yamazaki.)
