JWP TV showing of Pure Slam 2004 9/27/2004

This is from JWP's tv show. It shows a few selected matches from Pure Slam 2004. 

Mixed Gender Match: Poison Sawada Julie & Kaori Yoneyama & Jaiando(Giant?) vs. Kintaro Kanemura & ECO & HERO! 9:25 of 13:57:
Yone is dressed up like Julie, I kind of like it. She looks like a child, even against HERO. I spend most of the match trying to figure out which wrestler is dressed up as ECO. Jaiando is a big dude. HERO is pretty fluid in this and makes me want to see more of him. Kanemura gets lariated and his pants fall down. I could have gone without seeing that. Jaiando gets hit with a piece of a table and it sticks to his mask. Hilarious. Then the part of the mask covering his hair comes off too. HERO hit a great flying knee in the corner. ECO gets misted and I  have to wonder how effective it is considering there's no eye holes! Yone schoolboys ECO for the win. Mixed tag matches usually don't work and this was no different. Between the wardrobe malfunctions and a masked person without eyeholes being misted, I have to rate this as a DUD. Yone drinks some liquid after the match and starts acting all lovestruck and goofy.  This liquid apparently brings her back to normal as she says, TADAIMA(a greeting used when someone returns).

Command Bolshoi & GAMI vs. Etsuko Mita & Yuki Miyazaki 9:40 of 12:51:
The first thing Mita does is Death Valley bomb Gami. Miyazaki tries to kiss Gami and I'm losing interest by the second. Mita shakes the ropes while Gami walks it and gets crotched. Gami slaps Miyazaki with what appears to be money. Miyazaki tries to seal some while Mita is looking and gets slapped by Mita for it. Mita then gives it to the ref who tries to steal it, then finally it's given to the officials outside. Mita looks pretty big here. Probably due to the giant kneepads she's wearing. Definitely the biggest I've ever seen her. Miyazaki takes a couple of big bumps including a top rope exploder for seemingly no reason. More kissing and goofy stuff, so screw this. DUD. Bolshoi rolls up Mita and Mita screams and cries. I feel like doing the same thing after this turd.

They show some highlights of other JWP vs M's Style matches and I wonder why I'm not seeing those instead of the turd I just saw. The Omukai match looked decent.

Kayoko Haruyama vs. AKINO 12:05 of 19:24:
I hope this is going to save this mess. Haruyama has some ridiculous blonde dyed hair and AKINO has all  brown hair for this. AKINO was pretty good in this, but Haruyama was a little slow and for whatever reason they just don't click. I swear, there are more backdrops in this match than in any other match in the history of wrestling. **1/2.

Azumi Hyuga 10th Anniversary Match: Azumi Hyuga & Tsubasa Kuragaki & Erika Watanabe vs. Command Bolshoi & Kayoko Haruyama & Kaori Yoneyama 11:28:
Yone is back to normal here. This is the first time I've ever seen Watanabe. This match was alright. The match was mostly Hyuga vs Yone which made me want to see it more. The end run of it was better than the beginning.**1/4.

There you have it. There was not anything really worthwhile on here and the first two matches were pretty bad.
