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.
Rating: ****3/4
I'm up to this match on the '96 yearbook (the set Goodhelmet made...IDK whether or not you'd have known what I was talking about). I'm fairly certain haven't seen it or the Misawa/Kobashi match from the same before.

This was fucking brilliant in every sense of the word. Kobashi was the star of this one, taking a monumental beating and really getting the crowd 100% behind him in the finishing stretch. The Kawada/Taue exchanges were the other highlight, Kawada really brought the HATE! Fuchi didn't do anything bar a few stomps and elbows but he didn't really need to. Extremely hot finishing stretch that as I said before, Kobashi was the star of, this just reminded me of why I love him so much. I hear this isn't the best of the matches these teams had in 6-mans either so I'm really pumped to watch the others. Awesome stuff. ****3/4 - *****
It's not, but it's still really fucking awesome stuff. the 4/91 match is the one most people point to as the best (which I'd agree with), but that's probably the best six-man tag ever (certainly from Japan, at least) so not being as good as that isn't really a knock. The 10/90 match is my second favourite, though. Actually they play off Kobashi having his nose broken here in the 4/91 match as well.

Random rewatch:

Kensuke Sasaki vs. Go Shiozaki (NOAH, 7/24/2010)

The Osaka crowd was pretty much too fucking silent here, which is too bad because this match was outstanding. Legit MOTYC. The story was simple with Go trying to prove he deserves to be a top dog, and Kenskay is one tough motherfucker, a real challenge for younger aces. It goes over 30 min, but they managed to keep things entertaining, I was interested all the time, and that's great, and you know they're doing it right then. Some really smart wrestling here, combined with BRUTAL chops and lariats (another great detail in storytelling), but the thing I really liked was the psychological war in the finishing stretch - I'm talking about the chop battle. Now that's real psychology, when you play mind games and test/scare your opponent [hopefully this makes some sense], but people often confuse that term with storytelling and strategies. Anyway, the match was excellent. ~WAR~

Love that match. One of my favorite NOAH matches, but I agree had the crowd been louder it could have been even better. using the chop battle as a finishing stretch was a brilliant choice and is one of the only times I've really enjoyed a big chop battle (yeah, I even didn't like Kobashi/Sasaki that much) and thought it not only added to the match but almost made it for the reasons you already posted. Go's performance here is amazing and his facial expressions and cockiness during the chop battle was so epic.

Wow, amazing video. Really makes you feel sorry for Jumbo. Btw, what is the match where Taue is busted open?

I think it's their January 91' match but I could be wrong.

NOAH Great Voyage in Osaka 2012

Harlem Bravado vs Yoshinobu Kanemaru
**

Lance Bravado & Ryuji Hijikata vs Ricky Marvin & Taiji Ishimori
Surprisingly good tag match, mostly due to Marvin & Ishimori's awesome high flying offense.
***

Mohammed Yone vs Yutaka Yoshie
Much better than I initially expected. I was expecting a terrible match but I got a decent heavyweight bout with plenty of hard strikes.
**

Naomichi Marufuji & Takashi Sugiura vs Genba Hirayanagi & Yoshihiro Takayama
I'm a fan of the pairing of Sugiura & Marufuji. Their opposite styles really compliment each other and it really helped this match.
***

Katsuhiko Nakajima & Kensuke Sasaki vs Kenta Kobashi & Shuhei Taniguchi
Kobashi & Kensuke tried to re-enact the chopfest from their Destiny classic from '05, but with Kobashi's ill health, they couldn't do the chops with speed and it looked really bad. Kobashi seems to be able to have a good performance one night, then a piss-poor one like this on others. The other three wrestlers carried him to a watchable bout.
**

GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Titles
Atsushi Aoki & Kotaro Suzuki) (c) vs Atsushi Kotoge & Daisuke Harada
I went into this match thinking the outsiders stood no chance and they did a great job of trying to convince me otherwise. With pointless, yet entertaining matwork, stiff strikes and plenty of high spots and near-falls, this match may sound like a typical Kurt Angle spotfest, but it really wasn't. The near-falls were very emotion-filled and the match could of went either way. A bloody good showing from all four parties.
****

GHC Tag Team Titles
Giant Bernard & Karl Anderson (c) vs Akitoshi Saito & Jun Akiyama
This felt very similar to the Bad Intentions versus TenKoji from WrestleKingdom a few weeks back. Bad Intentions do some fantastic heel work that get the crowd behind the hurt face, the face makes a hot tag culminating in a finish were all the close-falls lack emotion and really feel hard to get excited about. It's hard to explain but I just wasn't feeling this.
***

GHC Heavyweight Title Match
Go Shiozaki (c) vs Takeshi Morishima
They're plenty of things to nitpick about this match. Morishima being selective about what lariats to sell and what ones to completely ignore may of irked you or maybe it was the extremely anti-climatic finish grinded your gears, but to me this may not of been MOTYC-worthy, but was a very good match.
