Nice, solid match, but nothing really special to put it over the top for mem.

Interesting that it's Anjoh offering the handshake at the beginning and Yamazaki being the one to blow it off. Outside of that, nothing particularly memorable or offensive about this.

Run of the mill type match. Just never seemed to get going. Yamazki has been lacking in some of his recent matches.

September of 1991 was a really poor month. You could hear a pin drop for most of this. Picked up in the final couple of minutes.

Inoffensive but nothing I could remember within an hour and the match didn't really have an overlying theme to make it memorable.

I liked this a little better than most of you, as Yamazaki overcame two near-knockouts to get the submission win with the ankle lock. A gutty comeback performance, and Yamazaki was still selling the effects of Anjoh's kicks to the midsection as he was leaving the ring afterward. Nothing earth-shattering, but a harmless way to kill fifteen minutes.

I thought it was at the very least a good look at two different strategies.  Anjo was going in just fishing for something to work, throwing things out there willy nilly.  Sometimes it worked, other times it got him caught.  Yamazaki was fighting defensively and waiting for a big opening before he let loose with much.  Then he started getting behind in points and had to get more aggressive.  Nothing super great or even above good, but I won't say anything bad for it.
