Choshu and Misawa start off, the crowd is hot, then Misawa tags Tenryu and the crowd reaches absolutely molten levels and all four guys manage to keep the crowd that hot for the remainder of this 20 minute match. Everyone puts their work in this match, but Tenryu and Choshu are the stars of the show here. Riki Choshu is Japan's answer to Jerry Lawler. Doesn't do that many moves, he just knows when to use them. Just impeccable timing and psychology. He has Misawa in the Scorpion Deathlock and the way he doesn't take his eyes off Tenryu is brilliant. Tenryu always looks like he legits hates his opponents and that's why he's so fantastic.

 

It can be a bit hard to follow at times due to the chaotic nature, but I guess that's why this is such a great brawl. You don't get these kind of matches and atmosphere in wrestling matches nowadays.

I don't know how this storyline with Sting and the Horseman plays out exactly, but I do know that Flair and Sting became huge rivals by the end of the year, so I was expecting a turn at some point, but doing it here came as a jarring surprise. Very rushed. Decent promo from everyone involved though.

The opening portions off this was slow and uneventful, with the exception of Zbyszko's subtle heel facial expressions and gestures. Things pick up once Larry ups the heel tactics to 11 and hits Saito with a low blow. The crowd go apeshit and then we get a hot finishing stretch, with every backdrop feeling like they could be responsible for ending the match.

Dutch looked rather badass in his video, the others not so much.

I've not actually seen this before so the bump caught me off-guard. Absolutely sickening. I thought Jack's selling was fine. He wasn't knocked out, just sent loopy and it wouldn't of benefited his character as much if he was just plain KO'd.
