The match starts off very mat wrestling based that gets a round of applause. With Narita up against the ropes, Uemura slaps Narita in the face. Narita gets angry and stomps down Uemura. This is a very technically sound and believable wrestling bout by these two Young Lions. Narita works over the leg of Uemura, then moves to a single leg Boston Crab.
