WMF ran another successful show for their 2nd Year Anniversary on August 29, 2004 in the small Saitama Pepe Hall Atlas building. Soldier returned to WMF for the first time since October 19, 2003. Soldier had lived in Mexico and Pennsylvania throughout the year, and worked for the IWC promotion where he was presented the IWC International Championship before returning back to Japan which he defended in the match. Soldier defended the title against FMW Dojo friend Garuda in the main event of the show. Garuda and Soldier are thought of as a younger Hayabusa & Mr. Gannosuke. The match was made by WMF after stating it received the most votes on a survey they had on their website. The match had actually been known months in advance by both wrestlers. It was the first time the two rivals had fought in a singles match since February 15, 2002 after Soldier defeated the injured Garuda quickly in the opening match after Garuda had begun to suffer neck problems. The match turned out to be a very good match, the best match with Garuda in months, as Garuda delivered the Hayabusa trademarks moves in the Asai Moonsault and the Falcon Arrow to Soldier. Garuda would attempt the 450 Fire Bird Splash, but got caught up on the top rope by Soldier, who took the advantage and eventually finished Garuda off with a Diamond Cutter to score the victory in his return over Garuda.
Mr. Gannosuke took on Seiji Ikeda in the semi main event of the show. Last year, at WMF's 1st Year Anniversary show, Mr. Gannosuke criticized Seiji Ikeda for being in the main event, feeling he was not ready to be in a match of such high value after he was known for just being a comedy wrestler. The words by Gannosuke made Ikeda refocus on his career, and become a serious wrestler and begin using his real name in matches. Ikeda took it to Gannosuke in the beginning, delivering Gannosuke's own signature Riki Choshu and putting Gannosuke in the Scorpion Death Lock to Gannosuke. Gannosuke would manage to fight back by delivering a Praying Powerbomb to Ikeda, followed up by several attempts to finish off Ikeda with back supplexs before finally finishing off Ikeda with the Fire Thunder for the victory. Afterwards, Gannosuke helped Ikeda up and showed Ikeda the respect he lacked at showing last year to Ikeda by shaking his hand for a fight well done.
Mammoth Sasaki teamed with DDT's Tomohiko Hashimoto & Seiya Morohashi to face GOEMON, Onryo, and Junji Tanaka. The Junior Heavyweight were no match for the heavyweights that used their power on all three wrestlers before Mammoth would finish off Junji Tanaka with a lariat as GOEMON & Onryo were laid out and unable to make the save for their partner.
Flying Kid Ichihara returned to WMF for the first time since November 20, 2003 as he had only taken select bookings throughout the past year as he has somewhat semi retired from professional wrestling. Flying Kid Ichihara teamed with GENTARO to face Mineo Fujita and newest WMF wrestler Masahiro Takanashi. Fujita nearly scored a victory over Ichihara with a German Supplex, but it was GENTARO who would deliver a Sweet Chin Music on Fujita to score the victory.
Ricky Fuji's mystery opponent from Senmu Yoshida turned out to be the former Mr. Iwaonosuke, Katsumi Hirano in a Sumo suit. Although Hirano managed to throw Ricky Fuji down to the mat several times during the match with his force, it was Ricky Fuji who would manage to get the victory using the .999 DDT for the victory.
