Question for deathmatch fans

I'm just curious, does anyone know when the first light tube was used in deathmatch wrestling? I've searched around and it seems that it was a match vs Honma and Shadow WX, but does anyone know of the date? I'm trying to find some footage of it. I remember it was floating around on youtube years ago but it seems to have disappeared

Honma was the first to use it in Hokkaido Japan. He was up on a ladder, took a light tube out of the fixture in the ceiling, and hit WX with it. I'm not sure of the date, but I believe it was somewhere in the 98-00 timeframe.

That's totally badass. Doesn't really sound like it was planned or anything. Also Honma is awesome from what I've seen from him. If I have he right guy I love watching him play the babyface in death matches.

1/2/97 Shoji Nakamaki & Seiji Yamakawa vs. Great Kojika & Mitsuhiro Matsunaga (Barbed Wire Board Light Bulb Double Hell Death Match)

IWA-MS used it in the same month in one of their shows, too. Both times a lighttube was called a "light bulb".

I can't find the matches on YT but a few traders do have the event/disc.
