I'm totally willing to bet I'm missing piles of stuff as well.
3/6/94 is an amazing match regardless of the backstory. But to me, that's one of the few matches were watching a couple of their previous singles and tag encounters REALLY adds to the enjoyment of the match.
Stuff like Misawa working Kawada's leg (and getting a reaction out of it) or Kawada kicking out of the Tiger Suplex is what makes 3/6/94 the GOAT match, IMO.
