Match Thoughts: This was towards the end of Mutoh's run in WCCW, so wrestlers were getting in a bit more before he defeated them. Just a simple television match to establish the pecking order, Falk wasn't the best style match-up for Ninja but the announcers did a decent job of making it not seem too ridiculous. But overall not much to it. Score: 3.5
