"I know this has not been released yet, but I know what event it is from, reading the statment in the last lot of FMW DVD's. It is not the IWA "King Of The Death Match" like eveyone thinks its is, but it does still feature Cactus Jack and Terry Funk. What this tape is, is a copy of the Japan only released:FMW Yokohama Arena "Megumi Kudo Retirement Show" Commercial Tape 4/29/97The matches at the event were:Ricky Fuji & Ricky Morton v Hido & Dragon WingerCrypt Keeper & Flying Kid Ichihara v Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Nanjyo HayatoKoji Nakagawa v Katsutoshi NiiyamaKaori Nakayama & Michiko Omukai & Chikako Shiratori & Mizuki Endo & Yoko Ikeda v Miss Mongol & Eagle Sawai & Crusher Maedomari & Michiko Nagashima & Lioness AsukaKodo Fuyuki & Jado & Gedo v Hisakatsu Oya & Headhunters *FMW 6 Man Street Fight Tag Titles*Hayabusa v Mr. Gannosuke *Hair vs. Mask*Atsushi Onita & Masato Tanaka & W*ING Kanemura v Cactus Jack & Gladiator & Terry Funk *Texas Western Street Fight Death Match*Megumi Kudo v Shark Tsuchiya *No Rope Barbed Wire Electrified Death Match*I'm not sure which of these matches made it onto the tape (The info given says there are only 7 matches in total make it onto the DVD)The event was a masterpiece with the last match being a true great. This one I know is on the tape, as well as the one featuring Cactus Jack, and also the match with Hayabusa - as the info in the last batch of FMW DVD's talked of Hayabusa being unmasked, along with the return of Cactus and Terry, aswell as the retirement match of Kudo.)Well worth you hard earned bucks, or pounds sterling as we have in the UK!"

"If you`ve heard of Cactus Jacks` crazy hardcore matches and heard him being referred to as the King of the Deathmatch, but didn`t know what this was, then look no further because this video has the three goriest matches of his career...Thumb tacks, beds of nails, chains, plate glass, barbed wire boards, barbed wire ropes, explosive boards and even an exploding ring! It`s all here and uncensored!"
FMW Is Hardcore

"I have watched this DvD and must say that for anyone who is a fan of TRUE Hardcore wrestling they should get this. For those unfamiliar with FMW, it is the TRUE Originator in Hardcore, Extreme Wrestling. It was the first to have the King of the Deathmathc Tournamet. It originated using lightbulbs, electrified barbwire, and EXPLOSIVES!!! The matches on the tape are some of the most extreme I have ever witnessed and I have been watching and following wrestling for 20 years. If you like Extreme and want to see the Real Mick Foley, AKA CACTUS JACK, and witness one the greatest wrestlers in the world before his injury, HAYABUSA, then Get this tape because if you don't then you are truly missing out."
FMW Yokohama Deathmatch

"Not the longest FMW dvd but still very good. Basically this is good for 3 main matches. Hayabusa vs Ganosuke in a Mask vs Hair Match, not a huge Hayabusa fan but this is definitely one of his better matches it's fast paced and it doesnt drag on forever rating 8, with background story about 24 min. Cactus Jack + Terry Funk + Mike Awesome vs Onita (FMW founder) + Kanemura + Tanaka in a 6 man Texas Tornado Match, barbed wire bat's, fire, tables, rematch from the fallout of The King Of The Death Match dvd, with background story about 20 min rating 8. Megumi Kudo vs Shark Tsuchiya in a 200 Volt Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match. This match is very good even better than her last match on KOTDM which I thought was slow. Shark pulls out everything trying to rid Kudo, blood, barbed wire and dangerous fire stunts in this match, with story about 27 min rating 9."
