So it has been a few days after I have seen it and I still can not get Misawa/Kobashi out of my mind. The match was just that epic.

Yea, I really need to see their other matches as well since currently I think that this is one of the greatest matches I have ever seen and people are saying that some of their other matches are even better.

I dont know where to start first though. Which match should I watch?

If you want to jump in to the "best" stuff, people generally cite the 1/20/97, 10/21/97, or 10/31/98 as their favorite/greatest/best match. A lot of people who like the 3/1/03 match also like the 6/11/99 match, as they're both similar in style.

All Japan Pro-Wrestling used a very strong story arc based booking philosophy in the mid 80s to the 90s. You can't completely understand or enjoy the Misawa vs. Kobashi series unless you're familiar with the different dynamics/aspects of the story such as Misawa's stable in the early 90s, the tag team partnership between Misawa and Kobashi, their feud against Kawada and Taue, Misawa vs. Kawada, Kawada vs. Kobashi, Taue vs. Kobashi, Misawa vs. Taue, Kobashi vs. Akiyama, or even all those guys vs. Tsuruta. You also get a sense of where all those guys are as wrestlers as you watch them progress throughout the years and wrestle each other.

Anyway, if you really want to know more about All Japan or even any other promotions, Shoot me a PM and I'll recommend you some matches/tell you more.

why? because is their best match against each other and is one of the greatest singles matches that 90's All Japan ad (and that's saying something).

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Don't tell me you actually give a shit about Meltzer's ratings?

Btw, I have Misawa/Kobashi from 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2003 at *****

I dont really give a shit about his ratings. I just found it weird how he gave so many of their matches the full 5 and then the match that is considered their best one ever doesnt get it.

O and I am watching the 1/20/97 match right now. I will give my thoughts on it after it finishes.
