Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Misawa/Kobashi vs. Kawada/Taue 12/3/93 and Misawa/Kawada/Kobashi vs. Jumbo/Taue/Fuchi 5/22/92 are two AJPW 90s matches that I'd probably say are as much flat out fun popcorn matches as they are "epic" battles. That's not a great place to start in terms of timeline but they'r eeasy to get into and the whole deal of "watching in order" is generally exaggerated anyway.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I recommended Jumbo/Misawa because is fucking awesome. And that leads to the Jumbo/Misawa stable war that is probably the most fun time in 90's All Japan.

Oh that wasn't a shot at you (or anyone else), but I get the impression some tell others to not watch certain AJ90s matches unless they've seen every other match before it. I think Jumbo/Misawa is as much of a good place to start as any.

I have no idea whether or not you took my last post as a shot at anything but... yeah.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I don't generally rate matches, but I'd have to say I think Edwards vs Richards is probably my favourite match I've ever seen. Second would either be Undertaker vs Michaels, or pretty much anything with El Generico in it.

lol c'mon man, not at all.

I agree that watching 90's AJPW matches "in order" is overrated (unless you want to dissect and "understand" every part of the match ala Nervosa). I just wanted to make clear that chronological viewing wasn't my reason to recommend Misawa/Jumbo.

Now, If you still haven't watched Hashimoto's best matches...that's a shot at me and all that is stiff and awesome about pro wrestling

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I would feel weird doing this because i've probably seen about 1/100 of the amount of matches to have a good comprehensive list. But i can do 2011

CM Punk vs Cena

Eddie Edwards vs Dave Richards

El Generico vs Kevin Steen

3 five star matches in one year is pretty high i bet but i'll re evaluate after i watch another 1000 matches or so.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Kobashi & Kikuchi vs Fuchi & Ogawa from July 1992 is a personal favourite. They gripped Korakuen with expert pacing & so many great near-falls.

Part of the context for enjoying early '90s puro is appreciating just how mediocre & patronising most US wrestling was back then. I started watching Japanese wrestling tapes in '91 & was blown away by the quality, intensity & complexity of it.

Of course as things skyrocketed stateside with SMW, ECW and the Monday Night Wars, puro stagnated & the Japanese influence on US wrestling reduced the distinction between styles.
