Abby did provide one good moment: the big face-off with Tenryu was a heated, well-done confrontation between two of wrestling's all-time best minimalists. Other than that, this was the usual freakshow stabfest until Tenryu's big comeback, which was indeed awesome. I don't get all the going in and coming out of the cage either. Jun Kikuchi doesn't even have a wrestlingdata or cagematch entry, but he was a decent enough FIP type. Goto was solid in what he did but he didn't ever seem to be on defense--seems that was all that Ryo was there for. All told this doesn't make for a *bad* match but isn't really satisfying either.

Tenryu doing "Why are you hitting yourself?" with a chair on Abby is great. Any Tarzan-Tenryu interaction is gold.

This is really bringing up an old thread with minimal reason... but I was going through Tarzan Goto match reviews on this site today and came across this and...
It's very very likely that "Jun Kikuchi" is a/k/a Jun Kikuzawa, who was in a couple of Goto tag bouts that also got reviewed here.
Kikuzawa's other aliases include: Kikutusu Jack, Ebedullah the Butcher, and Kiku-Kiku-Kiku...
...but he's perhaps best known as (the original) Ebessan, or as Kikutaro.

Interesting thought, but I've seen both Kikuchi and Kikuzawa and they are not the same guy. There are tons of late 90s japanese undercarders no one remembers and a few of them have been subject of theories regarding what happened to them. Takeshi Sato, YUSAKU, Hidetomo Egawa, Basara, Cosmo*Soldier, junji.com, I'm collecting 'em like by Pokemon by now. It probably says a lot about me that I know at one point people theorized Basara may have been Yuichi Taniguchi (I doubt it, by the way). It's a miracle Mochizuki and Ishii ended up becoming big stars given how almost everyone else was lost to time or become some type of gimmick wrestler.
