In Topic: WWE Network... It's Here

On the 4.17.82 episode of Mid Atlantic they forgot to edit out Jimmy Valliant's Boy From New York City theme. It plays when he comes out between the first and second matches if you want to check it out.

I'm watching the Brisco vid with no problems on my fire stick.

I reviewed Kawada vs Takayama for dawho5 here. I was surprised that their weren't more favorable comments about it.



In Topic: Toshiaki Kawada vs Yoshihiro Takayama (AJPW Summer Action Series 07/17/99)

90s All Japan is best known for the long, epic-style main events and I love when we get to see something different from their top guys like we do here with Kawada. Takayama is still the former UWFi guy here and not the bad ass main-eventer he would become. This is a sub seven minute slug fest with a fair amount of stalling, so we get staggered bits of sustained violence and intensity. Takayama shows that he can hang with Kawada and possibly beat him if they go toe-to-toe so Kawada does the smart thing and bails out of the ring and goes for a stroll. When Takayama decides to come after him, Kawada dives back in the ring and takes the tactical advantage and goes to work on Takayama before finishing him with KO. This reminds me of the type of match Genichiro Tenryu was so great at having with undercard guys that you knew stood no chance against him, but not as dramatic.

Looking at Wikipedia it's most likely the NWA Canadian Heavyweight Championship as he was the champ at the time.
