Sweet Jesus. This is my new favorite match ever. Kobashi just constantly trying to protect Misawa despite his leg was fucking amazing. Was kobashi legit injured here? The tape around his leg was huge.
I've never watched so much awesome wrestling in 2 days before. This match, Misawa/Kawada 94 and Jumbo/Misawa 9/1/90 are now at the top of my list. I never used to be able to get into AJPW as recently as about 2 years ago, Jesus was I missing out or what?
What makes the match even better is if you watch their match in 1993 for the Real World Tag Final, which can be found here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GUH7A729
Kawada gets his leg obliterated and sells it like a champ, makes his desire to tear Kobashi's leg from his body in the 1995 tag all the more better.
Echoing the statement about watching a few of these matches in order to see how they play off of the past battles, not a necessity for every match but certain matches in long rivalries benefit when you see how they take a past match and do a callback spot.
