Awesome awesome team. Yeah, the Kroffat/Furnas series is insane. Kawada was still searching himself but was already one hell of a worker and Fuyuki worked harder than ever at this point.

Tremendous for the short time they were together, really worked well with gaijin teams and Kawada really found his niche before Ricky left with Onita. I think they'll be on my list, but I'm not quite sure how high yet.

Key matches to me:
vs Takashi Ishikawa & Mighty Inoue 4/21/88: weird moves, teases, tricks, and smart work. A great match for sure!
vs Shunji Takano & Shinichi Nakano 7/19/88
vs Shunji Takano & Shinichi Nakano 9/15/88:
The first match is the better of the two but both are fantastic. The first is fast & wild where the rematch this more about hate. These should be seen together.
Giant Baba, Rusher Kimura, Masa Fuchi vs. Genichiro Tenryu, Toshiaki Kawada & Samson Fuyuki 9/15/89: Classic example of a diamond in the rough 6 man for this period. Baba & Rusher stunk by 1989 so, Fuchi in essence has to do the lion share of the wrestling for his team. Footloose as Tenryu's underlings are fantastic.
Genichiro Tenryu, Toshiaki Kawada & Samson Fuyuki vs. Kenta Kobashi, Great Kabuki & Jumbo Tsuruta 10/14/89: High energy, multi-near fall type match with simple moves that elevates it to something maybe not entirely memorable from a "highspots" standpoint but, something absolutely excellent.
Footloose faced the Can-Am team of Kroffat & Furnas to excellent results best exemplified by their 6/5/89 match. They also had some very fine meetings with the Malenkos, Bulldogs, Jumbo/Yatsu/Kabuki, Rock n Roll Express, and others. Some of these are jip but, I've yet to see a Footloose match that disappointed...usually around the ***1/2-***3/4 range.
