I can't imagine being in any sort of position to vote by ballot time, but I'm really enjoying catching some of the nominees I'm not familiar with and I always love match pimping since I never know where to start when watching someone's work. I'd only seen some Brisco tag team stuff, so Jack is a real revelation. Thanks guys.

Masa Fuchi

 

I have three, all of which are on youtube if you search for the dates.  There are a bunch of six mans and tags besides these that also give you a good idea of how great Fuchi is, but these really are standout performances for me.

 

vs Toshiaki Kawada 7/18/91

 

vs Dan Kroffat 10/24/91

 

w/ Akira Taue vs Misawa/Kobashi 1/15/93

Diamond Dallas Page

 

vs Renegade - Fall Brawl 1995

Not a great match, but a great heel performance. It feels like Psicosis rudo performance, it is that good.  

 

vs. Hollywood Hogan - Nitro 10/28/97
Holy shit, what a selling performance and very scrappy.

 

vs. Chris Benoit - SuperBrawl VIII

I think this is super underrated. Great struggle.

 

vs Goldberg - Halloween Havoc 1998

Huge Clash of Titans feel

 

vs Sting - Nitro 4/26/98

Excellent Layout to work the crowd to a fever pitch

The best thing to watch for DDP is his skit on the golf course with Kimberly and Maxx Muscle.
