Starts off with a Rob Dimension promo, I forward to:
Match 1: Ricky Reyes and Jay Lethal vs Ricky Landell and Kazushi Miyamoto
Reyes (wearing tights that say Cuba) and Lethal are the heels here, which I'm not used to seeing Lethal do. They do well. I like Reyes, this the first time I've seen him. Miyamoto is fine and Landell looks like Dustin Rhodes. Landell is fourth-best in this tag match, but he does ok playing Ricky Morton. It's his offense that's offensive. I thought I heard the ref call for the bell as Miyamoto had Lethal in a submission hold, but the match goes on until Landell all but misses Lethal with a leg drop from the top rope for the win.
Match 2: From ZERO-ONE evidently, Super Crazy and Masato Tanaka vs Ikuto Hidaka and Minoru Fujita
Japanese announcers mention Korakuen (SP?) so this might be there. Match would be described as luchariffic without the awkward pauses between moves, sprinkled with the rankling Japanese too-fast recoveries from what should be finishers. Tanaka has a wrap/bandage on his shoulder. Someone takes a powerbomb thru a table. Very few in the crowd. It's okay.
