The quality of the video here is great.-- is it film? Fritz stunningly throws TWO dropkicks. Missing the second one ends up costing him the first fall. Love how they sell the claw as DEATH. Baba the hero is not too proud to scramble outside the ring to escape it. Fritz is such a great natural heel-- something scarily primitive about him.  Ends in a countout and fun brawl outside the ring. There must have been a rematch or three.

Well I'll be damned, I found Cage of Death. I was gonna put it in the Danielson thread just for an example of how much someone could do not even being in a match but that seemed like weak sauce for that thread. 

BTW, if you haven't seen this before, you should really really watch it

How did Mossman become Taiyo Kea? For the longest time I didn't actually watch AJPW and Mossman was a dude in results. When I actually started watching he was Kea and it was a while before I realized they were the same person.

Same but that's right around the time I got into it. As for why, the change wasn't anything huge but to make him more relatable to the Japanese fans:

Quote

Mossman was given the semi-Japanese name "Taiyō Kea" (from taiyo, sun, and the Polynesian word kea). Kea was pushed as a strong loyalist and won the World Tag Team Championship with Johnny Smith.

Fun fact: after some mutant hit Claudio with a bottle he grabbed it and threw it back into the crowd. Unfortunately the bottle went nowhere near the guy who threw it and instead hit me right in the chest while I was at the back of the bleachers.

A BattlARTS match from 2007!  Ikeda vs Ishikawa is there-  but add fucking Murakami!

That BattlARTS match is going to the next person I get for Secret Santo for sure, and it led me to this 

I'm not sure why KENTA ever went back to Japan after watching this. It's like all the Shibata matches where he faced the big puro stars and got his ass handed to him, only in one match and strung out over 20 minutes.

Takada vs. Koshinaka in '96 in U Inter for the IWGP heavyweight title.

Very good match with a great Koshinaka performance and Takada just being brought along for the ride.

Han vs. Kopylov from RINGS '93.

More so a Han exhibition as he ties Kopylov's legs in some weird knots.

I don't think I've ever -- ever -- seen Gorilla in the ring. And he is almost as tall as Baba! That's like finding how Jake is as tall as Archer is recently, but somehow crazier.

I will state the GMonsoon was no joke in the ring, to spur to more intrepid DVDVRers to dig up some Manchurian gold.

Gorilla takes the same big bump in this one. Must have been a thing.
