AJW The Sneak Attack Wrestling (July 27, 1995 – August 3, 1995)

AJW The Sneak Attack Wrestling

It’s been awhile since I’ve written junk here because I decided to be a movie guy in 2019 and kind of stopped watching wrestling but tonight I got drunk and decided to watch some sleazy Japanese wrestling from the 1990s because I’m a dirtbag.

Today we’re reviewing the All Japan Women’s Wrestling The Sneak Attack Wrestling tape (ザ闇討ちプロレス) since it’s only like an hour long and all the matches are hella short. I’ve not watch wrestling in a long ass time so I don’t know if I’ve got it in me to watch a 40 minute grapplefest yet. Anyway let’s get down to business!

WCW Monday Nitro (September 25, 1995)

Time for another old-ass episode of Monday Nitro because I’m a miserable old fuck who doesn’t have a ton of free time. Let’s check this shit out! We’re live from somewhere. I have no idea where exactly since Eric Bischoff doesn’t mention it. He’s joined by Bobby Heenan, Mongo, and Mongo’s dog, Pepe, who is dressed as a horse for some reason this week.

WCW Monday Nitro (September 11, 1995)

Sometimes you just want to watch a random 23 year old wrestling show with zero political implications attached to it which is why I watched the second ever episode of WCW Monday Nitro this weekend. Coming to us live from Miami, FL the hosts for the evening are Eric Bischoff, Steve “Mongo” McMichael, and Bobby Heenan.

We kick things off with one of the most important debuts in the history of WCW: the classic WCW Monday Nitro set. This is hands down the best non-PPV set in the history of this great sport. Come at me bro!

W*ING The Curse of the Barbed Wire Bat (June 4, 1995)

WING The Curse of the Barbed Wire Bat Title Card

It’s been way too long since I’ve reviewed any sleazy Japanese deathmatch shit from the 1990s so today we’re going to right that wrong and check out the W*ING tape, The Curse of the Barbed Wire Bat. Steel yourself for lots of brawling and dudes in dodgy monster masks bleeding profusely!

IWA Japan Shin-FMW Tarzan Goto in Bathhouse Wrestling (August 21, 1995)

IWA Japan Bathhouse

Between my quest to watch every episode of WWE’s short lived show for kids, Saturday Morning Slam and my biweekly forays into WCW Nitro from the year 2000, I’ve watched a lot of ridiculous shit as of late, but it’s been a hot minute since I’ve reviewed any Japanese garbage wrestling from the mid-90s so I think I should probably rectify that. Today we’re looking at a tape from IWA Japan featuring the infamous bathhouse deathmatches. Yes deathmatches…there are more than one.

Before we go any further I should probably warn you that this review might have some GIFs with tits in them due to the nature of this match. Consider the page break deal your NSFW tag. Don’t read more if you don’t want to see boobs or butts. You’ve been warned.

ECW Hardcore Heaven ’95 (July 1, 1995)

ECW Hardcore Heaven '95

This is a show I’d heard a lot about back in the day when I was into real sleazy garbage wrestling and shit like that because of the Taipei Deathmatch but I’d never actually seen it until I got the WWE Network and watched it, which automatically makes it 90% less sleazy than it would have been if I’d traded a 3rd generation tape of the Big Japan Supermarket Deathmatch for a dubbed copy of this, but whatever. Let’s get extreme!

BJW (July 1, 1995)

BJW Logo 1995

Back in the early days of the internet, before YouTube was a thing, wrestling fans use to trade VHS tapes of wrestling shows with one another since often times there was no other way to see certain promotions. One of the earliest tapes I acquired in the 90s was a tape of deathmatches from Japan including the event we’re going to look at today: Big Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Grocery Store Deathmatch!

ECW Hardcore TV (February 7, 1995)

We start things off with the Public Enemy making their way out to the ring for their Tag Team Title match against the challengers of Sabu and The Tazmaniac. This footage is from Double Tables, but because I’m watching it on the WWE Network instead of a VHS cassette, “Here Comes the Hotstepper,” has been replaced by some generic hip-hop beat. The crowd doesn’t seem to mind though and dutifully puts their hands in the air and waves them as if they just don’t care all the same.
