Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2.2 hrs (2 DVD)

PRIDE SHOCKWAVE - 8/28/02 (This is the Japanese comm. DVD release of this show. Unlike the US version, all matches here are complete. You also get multi-angle choices on the last three fights. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.)
Tatsuya Iwasaki vs Vanderlei Silva Daijiro Matsui vs Jerrel Venetiaan (Before the fight, Venetiaan KISSES Matsui on the lips!) Gary Goodridge vs Lloyd Van Dams (Van Dams tries to fish hook Gary several times!) Ernesto Hoost vs Semmy Schilt (K-1 Rules) Don Frye vs Jerome LeBanner (K-1 Rules - stick to MMA Don!) ANTONIO NOGUEIRA VS BOB SAPP (The fight that made Sapp a star in Japan. Terrific fight that shows how good Sapp COULD have been. Alas, twas not to be. Still, a great fight.) Royce Gracie vs Hidehiko Yoshida (Bad ref stoppage that ends up being a no-contest) Kazushi Sakuraba vs Mirko Filipovic (Cro Cop TKOs Sakuraba in a good fight; Sakua comes out wearing a Vader mask and helmet, complete with a second walking behind with cans of steam. Very, very cool.)
