Von Erich goes for The Claw but Ninja blocks it and rakes Von Erich in the eyes. Punches by Ninja in the corner, Irish whip, but Von Erich lariats him in the chest as he charges in. Von Erich goes for The Claw again and gets it applied, but Nagasaki comes in with the kendo stick. Von Erich attacks him, but Ninja grabs the stick and hits Von Erich in the head with it. Nagasaki takes care of the referee while Ninja applies The Claw to Von Erich. After a few moments a bunch of Von Erich's friends finally show up and Ninja leaves the ring. Your winner by DQ: Kevin Von Erich

Match Thoughts: This was really just to continue putting Ninja over as a threat as he began going after the Von Erich family as the invading bad guy. They even blurred Von Erich's face at the end of the match, implying that Ninja had mutilated it or something. A good way to continue the feud, but not much of a match as Von Erich is just really awkward and not a good wrestler. Score: 5.0
