Stan Hansen vs. Andre the Giant [NJPW - 9/23/81]
How does one explain this match to the unfortunate people who haven't seen this? Ditch explained it like this "Normally I try to come up with my own description of a match, but "real-life Godzilla battle" is too accurate not to use. The irresistable force versus the immovable object has never been so fully realized in a wrestling ring."

Stan Hansen vs. Andre The Giant - 23-09-81

After hearing a lot of recommendations, I finally watched that match. And yes - it was awesome. Great chemistry between one of the best gaijins ever, stiff punches, one EPIC lariat and nice cheering crowd. Finish sucks, I hate no contests, countouts, etc. ****-.

Finish would have been perfect if it had a big rematch. Watch Andre/Khan 1/4/82 if you liked that btw, it's not the same level or anything, but it's kind of a similarly worked match and you won;t regret it. I gave Andre/Hansen ****1/2 fwiw. Watched it five times this year too.

Andre/Hansen may be better, but Andre's perfomance in that Khan match is a must see, so much fun.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Welcome to 80s wrestling. Pretty much every promotion had most of their matches end in no contests, countouts, dqs, etc. LOL.

At least it made the clean finishes that much better and exciting.

MiSu dropped the TC already? Damn. Hopefully Suwama will have better luck this time with it than he did in his first reign.
