Are the matches from July 78 and 1980 from All Japan or Detroit? I want to say there were even more matches with this foursome in Detroit and Amarillo.

Sorry to disappoint but the only Funks/Arabs tag from that year is 12/78. The version that had been on YouTube was of really poor VQ so that may account for the difference in opinion on rewatch. Clarity breeds contempt. First world problems.

 
Well shit, I feel like I need to rewatch it then. That's so strange because when I first heard of it it had the 9/78 date. Parv has that listed in his 5 star matches list and then I found an AJ Classics disc on Lynch's list with the same date. I'll rewatch it. It should probably be on there anyway. Its Funks vs Abby/Sheik. :)
You will know which match it is because it ends with Dory seeing red and Sheik doing an all-time epic sell job on his wrist.

Bell-to-bell the 79 match is better, especially as a study in heel psychology.

But as a complete spectacle and package, and as something that hits Magnum-Tully levels of transcendence, I'd always cite that 78 one, whatever the date is.

It's listed in a lot of places as 9/19/78, including on Highspots DVDs and Mid-Atlantic Gateway, but the date could be 12/9/78, which I think it probably is. I have the match here somewhere, I could throw it up if anyone is interested.

 

 

Just watched the 78 match on the AJ google drive. Awesome in the arch of the series. The previous year the heels had stabbed the fuck out of Terry's arm and pretty much gotten away with it. This one Dory get his hands on some scissors and gets his revenge.

Maroon is a guy who sides with whoever is paying him. He doesn't strike me as a man with any integrity, which is probably how he ended up in the wrestling business. If you want him to clear a player because you need him on the field, Maroon will clear the player. If you need him to hold a wrestler out and not clear him to set an example because you are being sued, then he can do that too. He never seems to have the athletes best interest at heart when treating athletes but rather his employers best interest.

The 78 match was on Dec 9th and it was on the 9th day of the tour. This could have lead to some of the confusion. Anyways, was Shiek hurt  in the 78 match because he didn't finish the tour or was it kayfabe, seeing as how Dory stabs the fuck out of him in that match.

 

And Elliot thoughts on Han vs Yamamoto from 6/17/95? That's probably my fav RINGS match and one of the few hyped shoot style matches not on your list. .
