RINGS "RISE 5TH" - 8/19/99 (Another great show! This is one is EX, master convert)
Ryuki Ueyama vs Yasuhito Namekawa Willie Peeters vs Chrisopher Haseman Ricardo Fyeet vs Lee Hasdell Hiromitsu Kanehara vs Wataru Sataka (Highly technical match, great stuff - ***1/2) Gilbert Yvel vs Tsuyoshi Kohsaka (Another REALLY stupid decision - Kohsaka goes for a throw and hurts his arm/wrist in the process. So they stop the fight and award the fight to KOHSAKA - keep in mind, he's the reason the fight stopped - because Yvel had lost a point earlier in the fight. WTF? In his post-fight interview, Yvel is justifiably mystified at the decision.) Kiyoshi Tamura vs Joop Kasteel (Good - worked - match marred by a bad finish. Kasteel submits to Tamura's armbar WHEN IT'S NOT EVEN APPLIED. His arm is still at a perfectly safe 90-degree angle, no danger or pain, and he taps anyway. AWFUL.)
