The second best match of all time.
Just out of curiosity what do you put above it?

Edit: What match was it where kawada broke his own fucking arm over Misawa's fucking head? Was it 24/1/99?

Bret Hart against Steve Austin at Wrestlemania 13. Although I'm not really sure. All these matches are though to rate and though to compare with NA style matches. This goes beyond a star rating IMO. In NA and hence almost everywhere we have a feud of a few months and two or three matches. The story of this series starts even back during the Misawa/Jumbo feud. To have an amazing feud (like Austin/McMahon) is one thing, but to produce so many classic encounters is just something epic. Words or ratings will never completely describe the awesomeness of this feud.

Not sure, but it happened during the Champions Carnival tournament in 1995. That took place in March en April. He broke his orbital bone is the first minutes and still wrestled one heck of a match which lasted almost half an hour. Eventually he would still win the tournament.

And indeed McQueen you told me. Thanks once again to that little list you gave me a long time ago. That was pretty much the reason why I started watching AJPW. Now I can't stop watching it.

I wish I understood Japanese, with commentary it should be even better. It's like watching Michaels/Taker without the voice of JR. I don't know if it would be the same. Anyways I always get chills when I hear those commentators shout the words 'backdroppe', 'lariattoooo', 'Tiger suplexe' or 'diving elbooow'. Awesome!

No the match where Kawada broke his arm early in the match was the big 98 Tokyo Dome show that involves the ganso bomb.

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

Yeah sorry of course. I was a bit confused and mentioned the match where Misawa broke a bone in his face after a stiff kick from Kawada.

In the meanwhile I'm watching some triple crown title defenses and I just finished Stan Hansen vs. Misawa (March 4, 92). Lots of restholds in the beginning until Hansen unleashed with a powerbomb, backdrop and DDT on the floor. Misawa came back with his signature elbows and gave Hansen a DDT on the floor of his own. Thrilling final minutes where Hansen almost tapped out, but he came back amazingly with a lariat out of nowhere for the win. Up next the match where Misawa won the title. ****1/4

I was sure the arm break came in the January 99 match, could be mixing some of their matches together though.

MISAWA VS KOBASHI

AJPW 20.01.1997 ***** 10/10
AJPW 31.10.1998 ***** 10/10
AJPW 11.06.1999 ****** 11/10 Makes every Misawa vs. Kawada match look mediocre by comparison
NOAH 01.03.2003 ***** 10/10

Just downloading some stuff from Ditch and he has the date for that match as 1/22/99. I usually suck with dates too, I just happened to remember that one because I like that match more than most people. Pretty amazing that Kawada worked most of it with a broken arm.
