Yup that would be the match, feels as close as pro wrestling gets to being a legitimate sport. Both men just convey this unrivalled aura in each exchange and subsequently it manages to combine breath-taking and sublime matwork and add a gritty and struggle in each exchange, where the counters feel earned and hard fought for, instead of being thrown out or looking terribly choreographed.

Kobashi vs Hansen (AJPW 29/7/93)
Godly match. Amazing story and performances. The best match these two had by quite a margin imo. One of my favourite matches ever. *****

For Hansen, it's arguable. He's had tremendous performances like against Andre and Kawada but the Kobashi match might be his finest moment.

Kobashi though. I still put 1/20/97 above any other singles match he's had.

I'd go Hansen vs Kawada 2/28/93 >>>>>>>> Kobashi/Hansen.

I'd also rank the Andre match ahead of it, but that's through personal preference and admiration for one of the most smartly worked and built matches I've seen. I certainly wouldn't argue if people got more caught up in the stiffness and physicality of Hansen/Kobashi and immensly preferred it.

Hansen could also have the 8/31/83 tag as a contender for the best match he's been involved in, though immense credit also has to go to one TERRY FUNK for that match being as amazing as it is. FOREVER~

Yeah the 1/20/97 Misawa match is just incredible. Maybe my favourite singles match ever to be honest, even more than Misawa/Kawada 94. Actually haven't watched that in ages, might give it a watch tonight.

Segunda is that the Funks vs Hansen & Brody you're on about? Not good with remembering dates. And yeah Kawada/Hansen 93 is amazing as well, prefer the Kobashi match though.

Yup that would be the one, Funk sells like an absolute god, Hansen and Brody are supreme dicks throughout, Hansen and Funk brawl like its HANSEN AND FUNK BRAWLING from the opening bell and then the post match promo is just awe inspiring to hear the crowd reaction as well as Funk's charisma and tone of voice.

Yeah that's a bloody amazing match. Maybe my second favourite tag match behind the 6/9/95 match. Hansen and Brody dominating the whole thing was so much fun to watch, especially like you say with Funk's selling.

I still prefer the 77' Funks vs Sheik/Abby match over the 83' retirement. Terry's performance is status

Oh, if we are including tags there's no way that 29/7/93 is their best match.


ps: welcome back

I haven't seen that in tag in what feels like a good couple of years, I'll hopefully give it a watch tomorrow. Job research can wait when its TERRY FUCKING FUNK.

(Yes I have a problem, though its not as bad as my Lawler problem.)

Cheers btw.

Still not a fan of Stan Hansen vs Kenta Kobashi, just don't see what's so great bout the psychology or story. Not to mention the stiff shots look dumb to me.

I did like Stan Hansen vs Andre the Giant, I gave it a rewatch yesterday and after the restart it gets so good. You could tell that at that time, something surreal was happening in front of that crowd.

Been checking out Dusty Rhodes lately, I've always loved his style. 80s wrestling is so damn good.
