Misawa vs. Taue (AJPW 4/15/95) *****
This was, if still needed, yet another perfect way to build the upcoming tag match. Misawa was in control for most of the time until Taue did a sick chokeslam from the apron on the floor. Until this point, Misawa had never been in that much trouble. He was desperately crawling out of the ring just to stay in the match. Once in a while he would buy himself time with elbows. Near the end it became a matter of time before Misawa took the upperhand. However it was no easy task to put Taure aside. He proved to be one though human being. After a shitload of hardhitting moves, Misawa got the win when he nailed a second consecutive tiger suplex on the neck of Taue. Awesome.
Misawa/Kobashi vs. Kawada/Taue (AJPW 6/9/95) *****
What else can be said about this one. Epic battle. This match was everything their other matches were and so much more. From Kawada taking out Misawa in the corner, the work on Kobashi's leg, the crowd split between Kawada and Misawa, the turning point in the match when Taue chokelammed Misawa on the outside and then Kobashi sacrificing his own body just to buy some time for Misawa. No matter what they tried, Kawada knew this was his oppurtunity and had no mercy for Misawa. The huge pop when Kawada finally pinned his rival told the entire story. The second best match of all time.
