[1980-09-04-AJPW] Harley Race vs Giant Baba

Recommended Posts

I just watched this, and will give a fuller review for the Roll the Dice project I'm watching, but this match just felt awful to me. I've never seen Baba in singles before I don't think, but this doesn't exactly inspire me to watch any more. Race tries to make this match work, but it is wrestled at a glacial pace at times. The myriad number of one counts don't help to build any tension whatsoever, and the finish comes out of nowhere. Awful.

I pretty much agree. This didn't really do anything for me. Race sold the end of the match like he had been through this huge battle, but it just didn't feel that way to me. I thought Race sold some of Baba's chops well, but that was really my only positive takeaway.

I gave this match a try and I share the negative view. It felt like they were going through the motions and nothing was making sense. I do think Baba was the better of the two. But I would not recommend watching.
