Was UWF what was shown as 'Bushido' on Bravo in the UK?
If so I remember that and it was really well done. I watched it for a while and it built up Gary Albright as a monster to a big showdown with Tanaka (?). made you able to actually suspend your disbelief.
Yeah, that's the UWFi, which is basically UWF with Takada running things.
Yeah, Albright vs Takada was a pretty well worked feud, nice bits of realism, though, to be honest, Takada never really did much for me as a shoot style worker. I'm sure many shoot style fans would kill me for saying that, but I just didn't like him and his Rocky Balboa imitating. It got old.
