  1. Wanted to give this another look as a number of folks were touting it as one of All Japan's best from the 80s. Really strong start with some work around holds and an amateur exchange where Kerry looks credible while Jumbo looks confident and ready for the NWA World Champion. Great butterfly suplex following Kerry's struggle to block it. Some nice arm work from Kerry follows but Jumbo counters with a crossbody for a nice near fall. Big fan of how he throws some nice wrinkles into amateur & power offense. Our first tease of the Claw comes with Kerry fighting out of a kneebar. Jumbo blocks it so he grabs the stomach and sells it well when they' standing. Enough of this feeling out -- backbreaker, jumping knees and the backdrop suplex take the first fall. Clean as possible with the challenger going over strong with clear, measured escalation is exactly how this should go. Jumbo strikes in the second open Kerry up! The blood adds quite a bit of drama with Jumbo furiously looking to put him away in 2 straight falls. Really hot start here and fired up Jumbo is a great version of this great wrestler. This falls apart a bit for me as he hits a piledriver for a 2 count, and then they transition to Kerry throwing punches that set up the Claw for the finish. Just out of nowhere. After relentless Jumbo control for so long and the blood loss, I'd expect a more compelling or creative way to put Kerry on top. No real issue with the flash finish off of the Claw, but it was as though they just switched roles on a dime without showing us how that happened. The third fall has the awesome work by Jumbo on Kerry's hand, just brutalizing it with strikes, stomping it, smashing it into the turnbuckle & cable. Jumbo is not waiting for a motorcycle accident in the states a few years later -- he wants Kerry losing a limb tonight. Kerry is just phenomenal here as well, selling the damage and follow up armbreakers for all he's worth. Inconclusive finish as apparently they weren't about to have Jumbo take the loss here even against the NWA Champion. This was a really good match. I loved the start, the blood and the limb work. But they really missed an important beat on the second fall transition, and as great as the hand work was, it really needed a failed Claw or some similar exclamation point to seal its effectiveness but instead it didn't even play into the finish or a key spot down the stretch. ****1/4
  2. This was awesome. Hot crowd super into Jumbo, and Martel bringing it. Really intense and dramatic finishing stretch - crowd was biting on nearfalls for Jumbo's suplexes and Martel's sleeper and cross-body. Was never a huge Martel fan before this, looks like I'm going to have to buy that AWA set and get deeper into him.
  3. What a fun match, the best AJPW tag since the 1988 RWTL final. Furnas & Kroffat are over as can be in Budokan, to the point where Footloose (especially Fuyuki) are getting legit heel heat for breaking up pins and such.
  4. I liked this better than their other match on this disc (04/19/1986), but it never really kicks into the next gear. Odd that these two never had a great match against each other.
  5. I wasn't super-enthused about this - my attention drifted away a bit during the hold exchanges that took up the first 15 minutes or so. But they ramped it up, and started slapping the hell out of each other. They tumble to the outside and continue brawling, and Jumbo ends up busted open! So he responds by trying to rip Mil's mask! Jumbo is no Fuerza Guerrera in the mask-ripping department, but props for the effort. There's a double-countout, but they roll back in the ring and continue brawling as Jumbo bleeds a gusher. The young boys (including teenage, skinny Misawa and Kawada) hold them back. Jumbo is super pissed-off, and punches two of the lads holding him back to go after Mil. It's either restarted or the second fall begins - I didn't get what happened here, alas. Once it's restarted, we get five minutes or so of nearfalls, and Jumbo dripping blood all over Mil. And i guess there's a time limit draw? Or a double-DQ? I don't know. In any event, love the fired-up, bleeding Jumbo we saw during the brawl and after the restart. First time during the set I've really loved Jumbo.
