Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Toshiaki Kawada
AJPW Triple Crown, June 3, 1994
Heard this is supposedly the best match ever. Should i watch it? i think i may have before like 3 years ago and got bored tho
That's my best match ever, and it was before I'd learnt about all of the back-stuff to it. They play off of the Tenryu/Jumbo match from 89 (Jumbo being Misawa's torch passer and Tenryu being Kawada's mentor) and Misawa pulls out finishers he hadn't used in three years to try to put Kawada away. I'm totally willing to bet I'm missing piles of stuff as well.
Like I've said earlier this shit can be enjoyed without even knowing any backstory. It's just harder with this than something like WWE or ROH because I'm assuming most gys who wacth it on here don't speak Japanese.
I've yet to see it. Is that the best match between the two teams?
It's sensatioal but the June 9th 95 match is really far ahead of it and is the greatest tag match of all time. Hell fuck that it could it be the greatest *wrestling* match of all time. A lot of people think it is, I'd put it at No. 3 at worst.

That's the one.
