Pancrase: Yes, We Are Hybrid Wrestlers 1 9/21/93
The debut show for Pancrase, the logical evolution of shoot style pro wrestling: Actual shoot fighting with pro wrestling rules. Allegedly.
Minoru Suzuki vs Katsuomi Inagaki
Boy, MiSu had death in his eyes, and Inagaki looked terrified. Suzuki choked his ass out in about 3 minutes. Inagaki literally got on his knees in tears to pay homage to Suzuki after the fight. Shit was weird.
Bas Rutten vs Ryushi Yanagisawa
El Guapo won with DA DANGITY DANGITY DANG in 45 seconds. Knocked that dude into the Netherrealm with a palm strike.
Vernon White vs Takaku Fuke
Fuke won with a gnarly arm bar about a minute in.
Kazuo Takahashi vs Dave Meltzer
In Double Talk Dave's one and only fight, he lost by TKO in a minute.
Ken Shamrock vs Masakatsu Funaki
The only fight that is actually a fight, as this goes 6 minutes with Ken winning via arm triangle.
