Match Thoughts: Too chaotic to be good, as it was mostly just punching and kicking. The attacks outside the ring were the only memorable parts, as Nagasaki choked Funk with a cord and of course the kendo stick attacks. But those attacks were never sold for very long and soon they were back to punching and kicking. The ending also was pretty lame - who ends a match because one team just doesn't feel like getting back in the ring? It made the heels come across as pussies, but in his run in WCCW that hadn't really been Ninja's style. Overall not a great brawl. Score: 4.5
