THE match that made Terry Funk a giant babyface in Japan. Great heat, violence and drama. Must-see ****

No one does a heat segment like Abby and Sheik. When they start laying in with their spikes and forks, the heat is palpable. Funk sold the attack masterfully and his arm looked like an absolute wreck so that his comeback was met with a huge pop. I love these four guys together. Abby and Sheik have some of the absolute best heel work in the world of any era and it's on great display here. Surprised that Dory got more ring time than Terry here but he played a decent enough babyface to the heels. Heated start to a legendary rivalry.
