More All Japan stuff I watched... (mainly Misawa/Jumbo)

Misawa vs. Jumbo Tsuruta (8/6/90) ****3/4
Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Jumbo Tsuruta (9/1/90) ***** (My 11th five-star match and much better than their first match)

Terry & Dory Jr. Funk vs Bruiser Brody & Stan Hansen - AJPW 08.12.1984 Watching Terry Funk in matches like can never get old to anyone. Terry is just all sorts of awesome. Him going crazy at the end with the streamers was brilliant. Easy brawl to watch. Finish was a bit of a shame though.
Tiger Mask II vs Kuniaki Kobayashi - AJPW 09.03.1985 This is just incredible. Seriously amazing. To say I was blown away by this match would be more than fair and it's not often that happens to me when watching a wrestling match. For a 13 minute match it really is outstanding. I hadn't seen much old Misawa stuff and only his NOAH matches from the past year or two so I was pleasantly suprised when I saw how much of a high flyer around the ring he is. Misawa is just amazing in this match and tbf Kobayashi is pretty great too. Brilliant fast paced action with some nice submission holds in between to break it up. One of my favourite >15 minute matches ever. Just amazing.
