Just finished watching The Great Sasuke vs Wild Pegasus (Benoit) from Super J Cup 1994. All I got to say is WHAT A MATCH. Not sure if I can go full 5 with it yet but I definitely need to watch more stuff from Japan. It sucks that I don't understand a word from the commentary but as long as there's noise, I'm fully into it. That top rope gutwrench suplex was an awesome finish.
EDIT: Don't get too excited about Benoit/Finlay from early February. They barely get any time to wrestle. Thankfully, they got the opportunity on May and delivered to perfection.
Watch Wild Pegasus vs Black Tiger (Benoit vs Eddie) from BOSJ 1996 when you get chance. Their best match together and one of the best juniors match from New Japan in the 90s. Benoit vs Regal from New Japan in 1995 is also another great bout, as well as Regal challenging for the IWGP Title vs Shinya Hashimoto in '96.
The Liger/Sano series from '89-90 is also incredible and arguably produces the best Juniors match of the decade in their final encounter. Can't recall if they're on youtube/dailymotion but should be able to point you in the direction of a link if you require.
