UWFI "UWF ROAD IN MORIOKA" - 9/30/96 (EXCELLENT show from the last days of UWFI. No interpromotional BS here, just great UWFI action. It's no wonder UWFI went out of business though - they can't count! The box says this show runs 100 minutes, but it actually goes 148! With counting like that, of course they'd lose money! I've got a master convert so quality is perfect.)
Daijiro Matsui vs Ryuki Ueyama (Terrific match - ***1/2) Hiromitsu Kanehara vs Billy Scott (Have to laugh at Billy's explanation as to why the new rules, which give you only 10 points now, actually favor a guy like him, a guy who gets knocked down a lot. He basically says they'll force him to not get knocked down so often. No kidding!) Tiger Mask Sayama vs Narohiro Oshika (?) James Stone vs Nico Gordeau MASAHITO KAKIHARA VS YOSHIHIRO TAKAYAMA (Fantastic match that goes over 15 minutes with a ton of great strikes and good submissions. Terrific stuff, one of Kakihara's best UWFI matches.) Nobuhiko Takada & Kazushi Sakuraba vs Yoji Anjoh & Kenichi Yamamoto (Too much "pro" in this one, with Anjoh & Yamamoto doing some cheating and double-teaming, which just doesn't work in a UWFI match. Still, a good match.)
