re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)
I think the biggest fans of that Steiners tag are people that saw it around the time it happened. It was a LOT of people's gateway into puro at the time, similar to how the AAA When Worlds Collide Hair v Mask match was for Lucha. The shit they (Steiners, Hase and Sasaki) were doing in terms of offence was pretty insane at that point, especially if you hadn't been introduced to that sort of thing already.
People seeing it for the first time now generally don't get the love for it, because there's a real good chance it'll be "seen it" stuff for the most part.
And the only Misawa/Kobashi match that touches 6/3/94 is the 1/20/97 match.
