  1. In the past few weeks, I have taken notice of BigBadMick, BenjaminKicks saying they are going through the 1990's in All Japan. Parv has his Excite Series run through with Steven who himself hasn't seen these matches in many years. Dawho5 did a great thread last year chronicling his journey through the 1990's but now he is going back with more focus. I say all of this to claim that now is a great time to have a definitive guide of All Japan in the 1990's. I think All Japan for most was a "promised land" when first getting into tape trading and I know I dug in with as much fever as I could in 2001 chronicling the 1990's. In recent years, I have just watched select matches as I have went through the years of each worldwide promotions. I am hoping this thread can provide some neat insight where we can get recommendations on ALL the stuff from the 1990's that we need to see from All Japan as well as discussion on the workers, booking and overall landscape. There was a time when 1990's All Japan seemed like a really boring topic with no new ground to break but I think now with the mix of first time viewers, revisionists, and historians, this could be some great discussion. So from 1990, what needs seeked out in addition to the following stuff listed below: Toshiaki Kawada & Ricky Fuyuki vs. Fantastics (AJPW 1/3/90) Jumbo Tsuruta & Tiger Mask vs. Genichiro Tenryu & Ricky Fuyuki (AJPW 1/14/90) Genichiro Tenryu & Toshiaki Kawada vs. Jumbo Tsuruta & Isao Takagi (AJPW 1/20/90) Jumbo Tsuruta, Kabuki & Mighty Inoue vs. Genichiro Tenryu, Toshiaki Kawada & Ricky Fuyuki (AJPW 1/25/90) Jumbo Tsuruta & Yoshiaki Yatsu vs. Kengo Kimura & Osamu Kido (NJPW/AJPW 2/10/90) Genichiro Tenryu & Tiger Mask vs. Riki Choshu & George Takano (NJPW/AJPW 2/10/90) Vader vs. Stan Hansen (NJPW/AJPW 2/10/90) Stan Hansen vs. Kenta Kobashi (AJPW 2/21/90) Steve Williams & Terry Gordy vs. Jumbo Tsuruta & Yoshiaki Yatsu (AJPW 3/2/90) Tiger Mask vs. Kenta Kobashi (AJPW 3/6/90) Steve Williams & Terry Gordy vs. Genichiro Tenryu & Stan Hansen (AJPW 3/6/90) Steve Williams vs Yoshiaki Yatsu (AJPW 3/24/90) Bret Hart vs. Tiger Mask (WWF/AJPW 4/13/90) Randy Savage vs. Genichiro Tenryu (WWF/AJPW 4/13/90) Hulk Hogan vs. Stan Hansen (WWF/AJPW 4/13/90) Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Genichiro Tenryu (AJPW 4/19/90) Tiger Mask & Toshiaki Kawada vs. Yoshiaki Yatsu & Ricky Fuyuki (AJPW 5/14/90) Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi & Akira Taue vs. Jumbo Tsuruta, Great Kabuki & Masa Fuchi (AJPW 5/26/90) Stan Hansen vs. Steve Williams (AJPW 6/5/90) Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Terry Gordy (AJPW 6/5/90) Stan Hansen vs. Terry Gordy (AJPW 6/8/90) Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Jumbo Tsuruta (AJPW 6/8/90) Toshiaki Kawada vs. Kenta Kobashi (AJPW 6/30/90) Mitsuharu Misawa & Toshiaki Kawada vs. Jumbo Tsuruta & Yoshiaki Yatsu (AJPW 7/7/90) Masa Fuchi vs. Tsuyoshi Kikuchi (AJPW 7/12/90) Steve Williams & Terry Gordy vs. Jumbo Tsuruta & Kabuki (AJPW 7/19/90) Stan Hansen vs. Mitsuharu Misawa (AJPW 7/28/90) Mitsuharu Misawa, Toshiaki Kawada & Tsuyoshi Kikuchi vs. Jumbo Tsuruta, Akira Taue & Masa Fuchi (AJPW 8/18/90) Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Kenta Kobashi (AJPW 8/31/90) Fantastics vs. Joe Malenko & Tsuyoshi Kikuchi (AJPW 9/1/90) Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Jumbo Tsuruta (AJPW 9/1/90) The Fantastics vs. Kenta Kobashi & Johnny Ace (AJPW 9/7/90) Mitsuharu Misawa & Toshiaki Kawada vs. Kenta Kobashi & Johnny Ace (AJPW 9/29/90) Mitsuharu Misawa & Toshiaki Kawada vs. Jumbo Tsuruta & Akira Taue (AJPW 9/30/90) Jumbo Tsuruta & Akira Taue vs. Kenta Kobashi & Johnny Ace (AJPW 10/7/90) Mitsuharu Misawa, Toshiaki Kawada & Kenta Kobashi vs. Jumbo Tsuruta, Akira Taue & Masa Fuchi (AJPW 10/19/90) Stan Hansen & Dan Spivey vs. Dory & Terry Funk (AJPW 11/15/90) Mitsuharu Misawa & Toshiaki Kawada & Jumbo Tsuruta & Akira Taue (AJPW 12/7/90) Stan Hansen & Dan Spivey vs. Steve Williams & Terry Gordy (AJPW 12/7/90)

    How many matches?

    Misawa and Kobashi v Kawada and Taue Ok, I've found June and December '93, May '94, January, June and December '95. Is that it, or have I missed some?
  3. Great little 6 man with lots of hatred going on here. Asako and Ogawa had some sort of feud going on and the match begins in a chaotic fashion with Team Misawa even triple teaming their opponents. Kawada ends up getting shafted by Akiyama and eats a super nasty exploder, but Akiyama is quickly isolated and made to pay dearly. Tons of nasty shots in that section, and Kawada does this awesome heel spot where he steps on Akiyama's head as he reenters the ring, such a simple but effective dick move. Ogawa continues to be really aggressive by working over Akiyama's mid section in really violent fashion, then later on turns into Mini-Kabuki and decks Asako with a wad of stiff looking punches to the face. Aggressive bully Ogawa is weird to watch. This was a good way to spend 20 minutes.

    Chad's Top 100 Matches of 1998

    Another year in the books. This year transcended some pretty big moments in my real life in becomming a father and this was one of the more nostalgic years I have went through as I was completely locked in with both of the big two around this point. I don't think the consistent match quality is here as in other years in the decade, and each promotion has times where it dips overall but this was still an enjoyable time trekking through the year.

    Chad's Top 100 Matches of 1991

    I ranked 275 matches in all and this is where the top 100 aligned. 1991 as I have said before may not have been a year where the top flight stuff was truly elite in wrestling history, but it had some really good depth. For instance, I have the WM 7 opening tag ranked #163 and I think that match is a ton of fun. Even though it took me longer to watch this footage than any other year, I fully enjoyed doing it. I would be very pleased to hear comments from others based on this list on rankings you agree/disagree with and were surprised by my ranking of. ***** 1. Randy Savage vs. Ultimate Warrior (Mania 3/24/91) ****3/4 2. Arn Anderson & Larry Zbyszko vs. Ricky Steamboat & Dustin Rhodes (Clash 11/19/91) 3. Masa Chono vs. Keiji Muto (NJPW 8/11/91) 4.

    Chad's Top 100 Matches of 1997

    1997 doesn't have as many complete matches as the other years I have watched but the top quality is amazing. I feel like I am fairly stingey with my ***** and this year has five of them.
