I think it may have been on the 1/4 show.

Wasn't 1/4. Nakamura/Takayama and Sugiura/Goto were on the 1/4 show, IIRC. Think Go wrestled Tanahashi as well.

It's a NOAH match from 3/1/09, ditch has it up and it is pretty incredible, probably my second favourite tag from last year.

Watching some Vader stuff from AJPW over the past few days, his match with Misawa from October 99 is still my favourite match of his, Misawa takes a ridiculous amount of punishment in this and it's just 13 minutes of violence. I should watch some of the pimped WCW stuff again but I doubt any will top this, probably my Misawa/All Japan bias showing though.

I actually prefer the Tokyo Dome match, but both are excellent. Good excuse to go watch them again. I love seeing Misawa German Suplex Vader and Vader Tiger Driver to Misawa where he just throws him up in the air. They make Flair vs Vader look weak in comparison, and that was one of my favorite American matches of the 90s.

Watched some 1997 triple crown matches. That means I've started with the first matches between Kobashi and Misawa. Amazing stuff, but as far as psychology goes, Misawa/Kawada is still much better.

Kobashi/Misawa - 20/1/97 - ****3/4 (great selling)
Kawada/Misawa - 6/6/97 - ***** (not close to their 94 classic, but awesome as well)
Kobashi/Misawa - 21/10/97 - ****3/4 (amazing final minutes)

Much much more to come soon. I've found tons of interesting matches.

1/20/97 is an easy ***** in my book, you just have to take into the account of the subtltys of Kobashi game plan to take out Misawa. Probably Misawa's best match where he wasn't facing Kawada in some form and thats saying a lot.

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

It was pretty long and I was very tired when I watched it. The selling of the arm by both men was as good as it gets. But I need to rewatch it, that's for sure. I don't know when tho because there's so much more I need to watch.

I forgot to mention I watched the match where Kawada unmasked Tiger Mask II. It's almost impossible to believe that same man beat Jumbo in the same year. I haven't seen too much of Misawa under the mask, but this was below average. Totally different from what I've seen from him later on.

And I haven't found Akiyama/Misawa singles matches. Yet I find footage of them all over on YouTube. Someone who can tell me more about their matches?

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

Well Akiyama wasn't seen as being on Misawa's level in terms of being a singles opponent till right before pre-split AJPW or early NOAH. You might not have gotten to them yet of your going chronologically.

I wasn't a huge fan of Misawa as Tiger Mask either. He was too bulky for the character and obviously was much better as his own man.
