Shodate's posts are borderline unreadable and he may be borderline insane. Yet he is very knowledgeable, has obscure tastes in wrestling and his off the wall opinions are refreshingly different.

I actually would agree with Drill Nakamae though. How could you not love the name Drill?

Zeus had the worst match of all time so is a natural pick. ;)

There's people on there I can't even imagine why anyone would like seriously or ironically. Yuka Shiina???

In Topic: Mitsuharu Misawa & Kenta Kobashi vs Toshiaki Kawada & Akira Taue (AJP...

Once it became apparent that 1995 was going to be the final year of my journey back through the 90's, I knew this had to be the final match. It's fair to say that it finished on a high. This was the pinnacle of pro wrestling.

 

All four men played their roles to perfection. Toshiaki Kawada was the centrepiece as he gave one of the all time great performances. The years of jealousy and heartbreaking failure being redirected towards Misawa as hatred and rage. By himself he would've been consumed by anger, but in Taue he had a partner who fought only to win.

 

The start was incredible. Taue let Kobashi know that his taped leg was fair game. Then Kawada's overwhelming desperation to defeat his nemesis was laid bare for all to see. Following the initial skirmishes Taue took a few minutes punishment before the main build began, revolving around Kenta's injury. Within that was this 5m period of unreal wrestling that shot this up to MOTY level. An extraordinary sequence where Orange got Crushed. He had to recover on the outside as Misawa now took a beating. When Kobashi returned he was clearly hurting, but just decided to suck it up and fight through the pain. The stretch was a long and winding road. A key moment came when Akira delivered his devastating ring apron nodawa to Misawa. By this stage KK was too beaten to even deliver offence so crawled over to protect his partner. Tosh kept unloading all his artillery but once again; Kawada can't beat Misawa. Except this time he finally did. Fans were jumping in the aisles after his long awaited breakthrough.

 

Throughout the match you could sense the differing emotions of all four men and it was like having energy bars at the top of the screen. The pacing and structure were spot on, the wrestling quality sky high, the selling magnificent, the psychology off the charts. And the right man won. 100/100 perfection and the best tag match of all time.
