1.Tsuruta vs Misawa ****
This was a number one contender battle and a rematch from their June contest. First thing I'd like to note is how much I love the atmosphere of these old classics. The crowd excitement during their entrances alone was magic. A simple kitchen sink spot getting a nice pop further proved my point.
This built nicely. Jumbo snapping nearly 20 minutes in was a great moment and added a lot of fuel to this fire. The second half of this really put it over with a series of beautiful near falls and hot moments that ensured this was well worth watching 30 years later. While I do put it below their previous encounter, I still consider this fantastic stuff.
