Hey guys. Would it possible to get some feedback on these reviews. Even if it's just a one word response such as 'shit' or 'great'. Are they too long or too short? Do I go on about pointless shit too much?

AJPW TV (2/21/1993)

Mitsuharu Misawa, Satoru Asako & Tsuyoshi Kikuchi vs Jun Akiyama, Yoshinari Ogawa & Akira Taue
An underrated six man tag team gem. The then-newcomer Jun Akiyama is an absolute beast in this. He destroys Misawa's two rookies and they build up the hot tag to Misawa nicely, but he never stays for long. He beats his opponents down and tags his rookies back in in. His faith in his rookies nearly costs his team the match. It showed Misawa as an established main-eventer, Akiyama as a brutal newcomer and Asako & Kikuchi as green rookies. Really great match with really good storytelling and an epic finishing stretch.
****¼

Terry Gordy & Steve Williams vs The Patriot & The Eagle
This was clipped down to about four minutes, but man, it was dreadful. The Eagle tries for a submission move but it totally fails and you can hear laughing from the audience. Totally cringe-worthy stuff and not in your regular puroresu way. Hey, at least it was short.
DUD

Stan Hansen & Rob Van Dam vs Kenta Kobashi & Toshiaki Kawada
Fans of RVD should see this to get an earlier glimpse of the man. Haters of RVD should see it just to see him get his head taken of by a BRUTAL kick from Kawada. I can't hate on RVD too much, because he was fantastic here. He wrestles a style based more on his martial arts back ground and less reliable on over-the-top high flying moves. He did bust out a 450 splash and an early version of the Rolling Thunder, but I can't fault him on that.
***½

Overall:
Just by watching one of these old episodes, you can really see what the hype about 90's All Japan was all about. They were putting on multiple ***+ matches on their shows every week and ****+ matches were very commonplace too. You don't really have to see this certain show, but find an episode that interests you and you'll have a blast.

I've seen the June match many times because it was pimped here and i loved it. that and tenryu/jumbo are 2 matches i watch all the time. much like Daron I've got to see more 90s AJPW stuff so why not start at the beginning.

5/26/90 fuchi/Jumbo/kabuki vs taue/kobashi/misawa: ****1/4. the heat between misawa and jumbo before their june match here is off the charts. kobashi, taue, and fuchi throw in some great performances to. this was my first time seeing kabuki and he was ok.

The pace they set is phenomenal because they keep it up the entire match. Couple botches at the end of the match drag it down from being perfect but throw those in the beginning or middle and I'd call it 5. The outcome was surprising to me as well as I thought it went the other way.
Top 5-8 of all time. That match is timeless, one of the best ever, definitely. Action, pace, crowd, drama, emotions, you got it all right there!

Yeah it doesn't seem long ago at all that KENTA was last out of action. Poor guy.

Thumbs up re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)

8/18/90 - Tsuruta/Taue/Fuchi vs Misawa/Kawada/Kikuchi: *****+. This match had everything and it was just too perfect. Misawa and Tsuruta battling before their rematch in September which included Misawa slapping the shit out of Jumbo while Jumbo had a boston crab on Kikuchi. Taue and Jumbo annihilating Kikuchi with their lariets. Kawada squaring off with Jumbo which makes me really want to fast forward to their 91 singles match. The general throwing around of Kikuchi. Awesome finishing stretch as well.

Got to agree that Misawa/Jumbo 9/1/90 is in the top 5 matches I've ever seen. Infact the only AJPW matches I'd put ahead of it are Misawa/Kobashi vs Kawada/Taue 9/6/95 and 12/3/93. Maybe Kobashi/Kikuchi vs Kroffat/Furnas 92 as well but thats a maybe.

ALL TOGETHER; 27/08/11

1. ALL TOGETHER Opening Match ~ Sunrise Of J: Kota Ibushi & Taiji Ishimori & Hiroshi Yamato & BUSHI Vs Tiger Mask & Kaz Hayashi & Shuji Kondo & Ricky Marvin: Great opener, non-stop juniors action, Ibushi and Marvin stole the show, we needed more Kondo, but anyway, incredible way to start the show. **** (79%)

2. Fighting For Future: Tetsuya Naito & Shuhei Taniguchi & Seiya Sanada Vs Mohammed Yone & Yujiro Takahashi & Manabu Soya: You see Shin Nihon and Zen Nihon bringing his future weapons in the shape of NO LIMIT and ES, and following that you see that NOAH brings Yone(35) and Taniguchi(34), LOL. The match was effective, very good, but not in a Opener jaw—dropping way. ***1/2 (70%)

3. Over The Border: Togi Makabe & Akitoshi Saito Vs Hirooki Goto & Taiyo Kea: Another good match, though Makabe & Saito are not my cup of tea, Goto stole the show here and Kea looked pretty good, is weird to see two heroes and Taiyo that low in the card. ***1/4(67%)

4. Junior One Night Carnival: Prince Devitt & Ryusuke Taguchi & Kotaro Suzuki & Katsuhiko Nakajima & KAI Vs Koji Kanemoto & KENTA & Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Minoru & Genba Hirayanagi: This was all about Nakajima & Kanemoto, they set the Budokan in fire with their exchanges, I’m dying to see Koji challenging for Katsuhiko’s GHC Jr. Heavyweight Championship, but that’s too great to happen. The final sequence was a let-down. ****(81%)

5. One Night Reunion: Masakatsu Funaki & Takuma Sano & Jushin Thunder Liger Vs Minoru Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki & Taichi: It started with Suzuki & Taichi’s antics trying to unmask Liger, what was funny but not great, the final sequence was better, Funaki was the king. ***(64%)

6. Destroyer Cup ALL TOGETHER Special Battle Royal: This was funny, Miyahara looks like the little brother of Go. **3/4(55%)

7. Midsummer Encounter In Budokan: Yuji Nagata & Wataru Inoue & Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Osamu Nishimura Vs Takeshi Morishima & Akebono & Yutaka Yoshie & Ryota Hama: Well, the only way to make this watchable was to make Morishima fight for nearly the entire match while the other only enter to perform a spot, and that’s what happened, good bout. ***1/4(66%)

8. NO FEAR! Go Ahead!: Kensuke Sasaki & Jun Akiyama Vs Yoshihiro Takayama & Takao Omori: Wow, great match, stiff as hell(as expected), Sasaki looked like a million bucks, Omori did well too, Akiyama was a mere performer, best match till this moment. ****1/4(83%)

9. Believe The Power Of Prowrestling!: Kenta Kobashi & Keiji Muto Vs Toru Yano & Takashi Iizuka: Very good match because of Kobashi, who with 44 can steal the show yet, he’s one of the greatest, is so damn clear, Kobashi! Kobashi! ***3/4(77%)

10. ALL TOGETHER Now!: Hiroshi Tanahashi & Go Shiozaki & Suwama Vs Shinsuke Nakamura & Takashi Sugiura & KENSO: KENSO was funny and the other five were great, nothing fresh. Each time a new pairing was in the ring, the Budoken was set on fire, great match. ****(81%)

Rating: ***1/2(72%).
Recommendation: High.
Final Thoughts: Best show of the year, from top to bottom, no MOTYC, but everything was fluid and funny, very very watchable. A show that holds Nakamura, Goto, Go, Nakajima, Tanahashi, Devitt, Sugiura, Sasaki, Tanahashi, Kobashi, Nagata, KENTA, Kanemoto, MiSu, Liger, Funaki and Kotaro HAS to be great.
