SHOW THOUGHTS: Fun episode focusing on the Jaguar Yokota vs. La Galactica feud. Both were pretty fun brawls with La Galactica resorting to having other women ringside helping her out like Rossy Moreno and Bull Nakano while Yokota was fighting against the odds in both matches. In the second she got a little more help from Lioness Asuka who was ringside. Not the most technical of matches that you’ll see but if you are into brawls or watching what the crowd atmosphere was like for wrestling in the 1980s in All Japan Women then you’ll definitely enjoy these two matches.
