Complete Kawada V.01

So, I slept on this DVD for awhile and am sorry that I did. I have one of the Footloose DVDs which I would recommend checking out if you reading this review. Still, I was hesitant about Kawada this early in his career since it wasn't until 91-92 where the Dangerous K persona started to take shape. So be forewarned, this is junior action Kawada not gamengiri - throat chop Kawada. If you like Kobashi's early style you will dig this disc.

Every match is very fast paced and well executed. Nothing deserves skipping or fast forwarding but, the standouts are:

Yatsu & Tiger Mask vs Tenryu & Kawada is a highly recommended bout. Good action, stiffness, and a little hardcore excitement makes this one memorable.

Footloose vs Inoue & Ishikawa was everything amazing about late 80s AJPW- weird moves, teases, tricks, and smart work. A great match for sure!

Revolution vs. Tiger, Takagi, & Nakano was full of rope running, strikes, and Tiger Mask II diving. AJPW meets lucha perhaps yet, hard hitting like I hoped for. I highly recommend this match as well.

Also an honorable mention to Footloose vs Rock 'n' Roll Express. This was joined in progress but, was an excellent display of late 80s Jr. tag action.

If you are a fan of late 80s tag wrestling then, you need to get this DVD!

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
