Kobashi & Kikuchi vs Fuchi & Ogawa from July 1992 is a personal favourite. They gripped Korakuen with expert pacing & so many great near-falls.

Part of the context for enjoying early '90s puro is appreciating just how mediocre & patronising most US wrestling was back then. I started watching Japanese wrestling tapes in '91 & was blown away by the quality, intensity & complexity of it.

Of course as things skyrocketed stateside with SMW, ECW and the Monday Night Wars, puro stagnated & the Japanese influence on US wrestling reduced the distinction between styles.
