RINGS BATTLE DIMENSION '93 - 5/29/93 (Very good show with some really nice performances - and the best match isn't Volk Han's! I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Masayuki Naruse vs Yuki Ishikawa (Ishikawa is from Pro Wrestling Fujiwara-Gumi and, later, would work for BattlArts. This announce him as being from PWFG so this is big of an "invasion" type of match. ***1/2 match that goes 30 minutes.) Mikhail Simov vs Georgui Keandelaki (This is a "gloves" match that sees both guys wearing full-size boxing gloves, yet still being allowed to do takedowns and submissions. The crowd actually laughs at them when they go to the ground and try to do stuff there. That's probably a bad sign.) Willie Peeters vs Nobuaki Kakuta Andrei Kopylev vs Dick Vrij (Fun *** match that essentially sees the guys trading points in a sort of spotfest. Kopylev is truly a great, underappreciated worker.) Chris Dolman vs Mitsuya Nagai (I find Dolman to be a slug, a guy that comes across as a legit wrestler, which I suppose is the point, but one that is just not entertaining and doesn't have good matches.) Volk Han vs Willie Williams
