12.11.80 Real World Tag League Final: Giant Baba & Jumbo Tsuruta v Terry Funk & Dory Funk Jr. (All Japan Pro Wrestling)

Epic match! You know how you get those matches that go 45+ minutes, but feel like they go by in 15? Y’know, Ric Flair was always good at them? Well that’s what this match does so well; uses a good deal of time (43 minutes exactly) to get their story – and in this case, stories – across, but does it in such a way that it never becomes boring and the viewer is always into it. And with all of that said, I feel this match’s biggest strength is its ability to transition flawlessly from story to story:

I feel it’s split into three main areas – Terry and Dory focus on the younger Jumbo; Jumbo and Baba focus on Terry; Jumbo gets pissed at Terry, building to the finish. The first is your standard face in peril type deal, with the older, wiser Funks focusing on you Tsuruta. That’s not to say it’s a bad thing of course, because it isn’t, and the crowd is suitably loud. The transition from part 1 to part 2 is excellent; Jumbo’s been trying to get himself out of there for a long time, but the Funks are just too good at cutting the ring in half, so when Terry goes for a butterfly suplex too neat the ropes, Jumbo seizes his opportunity, tossing Terry backwards over the top, allowing him to finally make the tag to Baba.

Part 2 is Terry’s beatdown! Much the same as the Jumbo work over period, they just cut the ring in half and try not to give Terry any chance of making a tag to his fresher brother. It’s simple, but it works ever so well. Eventually though, Terry’s persistence pays off – much like Jumbo’s did – and he makes a tag to Dory. Soon enough, with Dory’s freshness showing, the Funks are back on top, and this time it’s Baba who suffers the beatdown. Enter phase 3: with Baba on the receiving end of some heavy punishment, Jumbo says “To hell with this!” and takes a stand by himself, kicking Terry repeatedly in the head for daring to beat on his big goofy partner. From this point on, Jumbo is a pissed off maniac, and Terry’s his punch bag.

The last 10 minutes are just great! See, Terry wouldn’t drop to Jumbo’s level of aggression – he was there for the tag league, not to fight, and he was smarter than that anyway – so he managed to refrain from doing so. This may have been a mistake though, because Jumbo and Baa were really taking it to Dory, and without Terry being as fired up as possible – like Jumbo was for his team – they might not have what it takes. So when Jumbo goes for a top rope knee drop on Dory, Terry dives on top of his brother and takes the blow himself. Terry, for all intents and purposes, is dead at this point. Once again then, Jumbo and Baba try to put Dory away… but ol’ Dory just will not stay down. At all! And it gives Terry enough time to recover… and now he’s pissed!

Eventually the fight goes outside, with all four guys brawling on the floor. Then they realise the ref’ is counting them out, so a struggle to get back in ensues… which Terry and Dory narrowly miss out on. Unfortunately the count out finish is slightly anti-climactic, but the absolute awesomeness of the previous 42 minutes is just so, well, awesome, that it’s hard to find fault in a count-out. Sure it would’ve been better if they gave us a clean winner, but it’s the 80s – one who expects that every match is guaranteed to walk away disappointed… even if it is the final of the promotion’s biggest tag team league. So, somewhat weak finish included, this match is probably some of the absolute best tag team wrestling you’re likely to see in the 80s. In fact, I don’t recall one being this good for another year. Coincidentally, it happened in the 1981 final. Guess which pair of brothers were in that one?

****1/2
I actually just got the 80, 81, and 82 Tag League Finals off of a torrent. Glad to know it was worth it

Talking about 80's All Japan, the 70's stuff is just as good too. Especially when Brisco, Dory, Terry, Harley, etc. went over to defend the title. Once you get used to the slower pacing, those matches are godly.

Terry vs Jumbo 2/3 falls for the NWA Title in Summer of '76 is a really awesome match.

Absolutely! One of my favourites ever.

Watched this on the bus today actually. Surprisingly, I wasn't feeling it all that much. It was really good, but it just never struck me as "awesome" like Terry/Jumbo did. I also watched Jumbo/Billy Robinson before it, so perhaps I was a little jaded after seeing something that was as different for 1970's standards.

Speaking of which, that Jumbo/Robinson 3/5/77 match is just so freakin' great. Seriously, it's from 1977? I bet some of the OVW, or whatever WWE's development territory is called nowadays, guys couldn't pull off shit like this 31 years later. It's pretty much Jumbo trying to keep Robinson down with varied holds, only for Billy to find some of the most unusual ways of escapeing each and every time. Works really well as the match progresses, since the finish consists of some good old bomb throwing - sensible bomb throwing, mind you. So much great little touches that it's hard to remember them all, but Billy Robinson may have the most unusually awesome offence for a wrestler in the 70s. Hell, for any era. He kinda gives off that World of Spost vibe, but blends it so well with high end heavyweight wrestling. Absolutely fantastic match, and I'm really looking forward to watching the rematch from 6 days later. ****1/2

And like you said, once you get used to the slower pace, actual old-school wrestling is so damn great... I've been watching 70s wrestling frequently for about 3 years now and it gets better every time.

I like it a lot. Just smart work all around that made both guys look great in the end.

I got the 3 Jumbo/Billy matches somewhere, but haven't got around to seeing them yet for some reason.

Holy shit... just checked there. I'm so fucking on those. I've got a clipped version of the Ohtani/Wagner match, and if this one's full, it'll be all kinds of awesome. And I say that having seen half of it already...

Straightedge, I'm fully intending to watch the Jumbo/Race match again since I have it on DVD anyway. Today I watched it on an mp4 player screen with a bunch of fucking bored lifeguards acting like cock ends on a bus. I mean, if you're bored, bring something to keep you amused... a prostitue or something.

Sorry to ruin the mini-Puro discussion...

...but I randomly dug up the few CZW shows I own (which is like 4 shows from 2005), and goddamn, what fun shows they are. Everyone's just doin' crazy fun shit in their matches, the crowds are big and rambunctious, the roster is varied and talented...great stuff. It's insane how fast and far they fell from the end of 2005/beginning to 2006 to where they are now. Pitiful.
