Catching up from last week - dawho5 gave me this:
I've watched an embarrassingly small amount of 90s All Japan - heck, I'm not sure I've ever seen Kroffat and Furnas on Japanese soil, only their (not good) stuff on this side of the pond. I don't think I've ever seen Kikuchi before. Love the fire early on, with the elbows in response to Kroffat's slap. The fans are super into this guy. Also, his rising sun tights are great. Kobashi is in and this is quite the babyface shine sequence. This is a great match to show people who think Japanese crowds are "quiet" as they are chanting like crazy for the babyfaces from the opening bell.
I'm still not loving Furnas here, but Kroffat is much better as a dick heel than he was as a babyface. Interestingly, there's sort of two heat segments here, but both are on Kikuchi, who is pretty great in the FIP role. Great seller, especially with his facials. The second heat segment on him is really fun (particularly when Kroffat is in there). The hot tag to Kobashi is electric. This stays structured longer than an American tag match would, as things don't totally break down after the hot tag, even though we're building to the finish. The crowd really loses it's mind on the near fall after the dropkick doomsday device. Dug the finish, as did the crowd (holy wow what a pop for the moonsault).
Really awesome match, glad I got to see this.
