This DVD is 2 episodes so, there is a little clipping but on the main matches it is extremely limited and hardly noticeable. There are 3 matches of note in my opinion.

First, Kondo vs Hiyashi. These two have had some noteworthy battles in the past and if those resemble this match then, I need to see 'em. This bout had loads of unique counters and highspots. I would have liked a different finish but, it was well done and furthered the story as setup in the pre-match video. I highly recommend this match but it takes a couple minutes to get going so, stick with it.

Next is the match of the disc in my view. Team Strong BJW vs Soya & Sanada. First time I've seen Sanada but, he added some necessary diversity to the action. If it weren't for him it would have been all macho no selling and yelling. Don't get me wrong there was some of that but, his tech offense kept me guessing. So, we had a great mixture of suplexes, lariats, diving moves, nice submissions and saves. It was a great match and along with the above Jr. match are reason enough to get this DVD.

The icing on the cake was the six man on pt. 2. I'm not a big Akebono fan...no pun intended...but it was a fun six man with Minoru Suzuki brutalizing KAI and SUWAMA showing himself to be the ace of AJPW for the 2010's.

Note: The Jr. Tag match on pt. 2 was clipped to just the finish as was the final match.

Nonetheless, with a highly recommended Jr. match, a great heavyweight tag match followed by a fun 6-man, this was a great purchase.

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