This thread got quiet all of a sudden. Let's fix that with one of the rowdiest Japanese crowds ever:


This is a fairly famous match (WON match of the year 1992) but is now overlooked somewhat IMO, probably because the non-Kobashi people in the match never meant much outside of a few years in the 90's. They're all good workers but not the people who usually top end of year lists.

The match is for the AJPW All-Asia tag titles, and the crowd is rabid for Kikuchi especially (the match takes place in his hometown). Did I mention that the crowd goes APESHIT for everything?

Mike Awesome vs Masato Tanaka - Heatwave '98

I saw these two in Queens a couple of years later

Haven't watched yet cause I cancelled my subscription but I feel like this is the thread for it regardless - apparently WWE has unearthed a thoroughly decent quality video of THE LAST BATTLE OF ATLANTA (!!!!!!!!!!!) and put it on the Network now. Cool! I will probably torrent it soon

three years pass...

19 years ago today on May 22, 2001 at the Sapporo Green Dome, Hayabusa won the WEW Title from Tetsuhiro Kuroda in a Exploding Barricade Death Match with Kodo Fuyuki as the referee. This was an awesome match that concluded their 6 month feud and the last time FMW looked healthy. pic.twitter.com/IChVBvjo83

seven months pass...

I mean, I feel that this is technically a match. A wrestlers vs. house match. One of my friends randomly sent this to me yesterday, and they don't even watch NJPW
