Maybe the best southern-style tag ever and maybe the best crowd ever. **** 3/4

For one night, Dan Kroffat was the greatest heel in the industry. His "that's right, we bad" strut (20:30 ish) still kills me to death every damn time.

Well, this countdown has led me here.  I was pretty excited to watch this match because I had never seen before today.  It lived up to the hype.  It's not going to be my top match of the 90's, but this match was probably the most fun.  I loved Kikuchi's super hot opening swinging those elbows.  Kobashi with the save after those two deadly suplexes on Kikuchi was timed perfectly.  I don't know what they may have called it, but the lion tamer spot was awesome.  Kobashi hit one of the best double-lariats I've seen.  My favorite spot might be Kikuchi saving Kobashi after the frankensteiner.  Speaking of that, to garretta's point, I would love to see Furnas and Kroffat take on the Steiners in their prime.  Man, would that be awesome.  I'm not sure where I have this just yet, but ****3/4 to ***** sounds about right.  If someone told me this was their favorite match from the 90's, or even if they thought this was the best match from the 90's, I'd totally understand why.

Wow, what a tag match (and a thank you to Loss for your top 500 matches of the 90's list that led me to finding it)! This is the only AJPW tag match I've seen that follows the simple yet effective "babyface in peril" formula. Kikuchi was great in this match, showing a ton of fire in his offense while also selling absolute desperation for Kroffat and Furnas. Builds beautifully to Kobashi tagging in and clearing house. Usually when I watch 90's AJPW, I just take in everything I see and enjoy it for what it is rather than get invested in a winner. This time, I was on the edge of my seat pulling for Kobashi and Kikuchi.


Great stuff.
