Masanobu Fuchi vs. Kikutaro
Kikutaro aka Ebessan is no doubt a legendary comedy wrestler and can also put on a great non-comedy match. Thus when he is matched with a guy like Masanobu Fuchi, who has had 5, 5 star matches it is tough to tell what you are going to get. Did I mention that there are teenagers driving around now who weren’t even born when Fuchi had his last 5 star match as rated by Dave Meltzer? Perhaps for that reason alone it is good that they had a fun little bout instead of trying to impress Mr. Meltzer.
The bout starts with the two feeling each other out. Kikutaro then slaps Fuchi’s chest and gets a hilarious reaction out of him. As could be expected Fuchi is not going to take this lying down. He rams Kikutaro’s head from turnbuckle to turnbuckle for about a third of the match. It reminds me of WWF No Mercy for the N64 being glitchy so that at one point a wrestler will just keep punching another for infinity. This lasts a little less than infinity and after which Kikutaro scissor attacks Fuchi and then scissor attacks the referee.
After a series of small package attempts Fuchi emerges victorious by pinning Kikutaro. This is only after Kikutaro had attempted to pin the referee of course.
All in all this is a good comedy bout that is worth taking the time to look at.
