Kenta Kobashi my 2nd favorite of all time after Mick Foley, curious to see from other Kobashi fans, what match (or matches if you want) was your favorite that involved Kobashi.
Kobashi Vs Steve Williams in 93 is my favorite. Even though Kobashi lost, it represented to me Kobashi's never say die spirit. I mean the backdrop drivers look like they should have killed the normal man, but Kobashi kept getting up.
I'm a huge Steve Williams fan, and just enjoyed the whole match in general, Kobashi's facial expressions when Williams absorbed the chops, the hard hitting action, I just love it.
I thought they both had internal injuries after that... totally savage spot.
It's one of the reasons I remember that match more than most of the thousands of matches I've watched over my lifetime.
This match is in my top 5 favourite matches of all time
Legit respect for Akiyama as well for taking it (Akiyama doesn't get enough love for his matches with Kobashi in general, it's usually Kobashi and Misawa, or Kobashi and Kawada) but Kobashi and Akiyama matches were really fucking good.
Another spot from another match had Akiyama doing a Dragon Screw from the apron to the floor.
