Going to get around to that tonight I think. I'm pretty new to AJPW so trying to catch up with it is hard and there are so many different variations of opponents/matches that it gets pretty confusuing. I'm sure I could watch pretty much all of the matches involving Misawa, Kobashi, Kawada, Taue and Jumbo and they would be awesome though.
well essentially the main players around this time are Misawa, Kawada, Kobashi, Taue and then the likes of Fuchi, Kikuchi and some Americans like Hansen and Dr Death Steve Williams
Kawada was Misawa's main tag partner during the Misawa/Kawada/Kobashi vs Jumbo/Taue/Fuchi feud. Kawada and Taue had their own rivalry and Kobashi was the young underdog who'd come through the ranks with Misawa and Kawada but wasn't at their level yet. Fuchi was the ally of Jumbo and Taue and primarily worked with Kobashi during the tags.
Eventually Kawada and Taue finished their feud in 1993, they then aligned and become 'The Holy Demon Army'. Kobashi then stepped up to be Misawa's second man and from there these 4 began their feud which featured Kawada finally trying to beat Misawa (3/6/94) and Kobashi gradually becoming a bigger force in the company through his matches vs Hansen and Williams and occasionally against Kawada and Misawa. Eventually Kobashi would become the next force to challenge Misawa culminating in epic battles spawning 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and then later 2003.
Essentially all you need to know is somewhere down the line Misawa and Kawada become heated rivals, Kobashi moves from rookie to emerging star and finally becomes the second man to Misawa after Kawada leaves the unit, Taue and Kawada become a great tag team after a 2 year on and off feud and it ends with Misawa, Kobashi and Kawada being the clear trio to lead AJPW into a new era.
