Toshiaki Kawada vs. Akira Taue (AJPW, 3/31/1996)
Ah, this was great. And I mean, really great. This match should be used as a text-book for wrestlers who want to do a 30 min match. Tag team partners collide in a Champions Carnival tournament, they're evenly matched and they're so fucking great. Slower but entertaining pace, methodic work, smart wrestling, school of selling, great build-up for big moves, exciting finishing stretch - this was simply brilliant.
