I don't know, I prefer the Akiyama stuff from 13-16 to what I've seen this year from AJPW.

A new selection for 2006 from out of nowhere. Like the Diamond Cutter, I never saw it coming.

After a couple of months disconnected from this project, I finally came back. Updated with 1990 (aka el año del Dandy) and going through 1991 as we speak.

 

The toughest part of 1990 was the big disapointment both Fujiwara/Takada were, and having to take back the 5* rank from Dandy/Satánico apuestas match; on the other side, Azteca/Dandy was near-perfect and Kong/Nakano cage match was holy shit levels of amazing (and still not enough for top 3, what a year).
