All of the young gaijin get a chance to look good.  I loved the Yamada/Owen match with a heel Owen.  Liger was always better paying back a dickish heel than in any other mode.  The 10 man elimination tag was indeed great and lived up to the hype.  Facekickers getting the win is great because Kawada/Fuchi is one of those teams I wish we had gotten about a thousand more matches from IRL.

Could be that footage was easier to find in Japan.

Cooley and Johnson with a big win.  I'm looking forward to Rheingans/Backlund too.  Will it make Rheingans at the expense of Backlund or rejuvenate his career?  Harley and Orndorff did not disappoint.  Martel and Taylor cap off a great show with a show of respect after a great match.

 

American Made is coming apart at the seams.  St. Clair with a big win over Robinson but I think Robinson will have more to say about it.  Rip Oliver coming to Paul Jones' aid is certainly a surprise for Valiant.  Loved the main event and it's great to see Ted in a feud with Duggan right off the bat.

Reviewing Low Ki vs. Hotstuff Hernandez from IWA Midsouth 2004:

 

I liked the opening with Ki establishing his strengths (quickness and the kicks) and then Hernandez catching him and going to his strength (power).  It sets a really good tone that they carry through the match.  I've read that Ki isn't big on selling, but he seems to keep the damage done to his back in mind most of the time as the match progresses.  Good comeback by Low Ki but I thought the Kobashi chops were a little much.  They get a little cute with the athletic spot exchange, but it stays within the confines of the story they are telling. Finish is a little odd to me.  Was Ki really finishing with that running front dropkick at the time?  Not my cup of tea, but they told a good story and stuck to it pretty well.  It's a match I'd cal fun and watch again.

 

RicheyEdwards I'll give you a match that you should enjoy.  Akira Maeda vs. Tatsumi Fujinami from 1986 NJPW.  If you have seen it I can certainly find another.

I liked the Freebirds/Devastation match a lot.  Midnights and RnRs!!  Armstrong will not be happy with Fuller.  

 

I would agree Reed needs some backup.  Baby Doll Is playing with fire.  Magnum saving Martel from the cheap victory by the Russians would have sent the fans home happy.
