Use this thread to nominate matches you've seen that you think are good that would fit in this category. We'll keep this and all other topics open for the remainder of the year so you can add matches anytime you come across something you see that you like.

Fujanami v. DK 2/80 (I like it alot better than any of the DK/Sayama matches)

Rick Martel v. Ric Flair AJPW 1985

Maeda v. Fujanami 1986 (I'm awful with dates)

 

I'm trying to think of a specific Jumbo/Flair match, but all of them are good enough to be nominated. There's also a Tsuruta v. Von Erich match that deserves nomination. The finals of the 81 tag league also. I can't think of any Joshi right now and this list should have alot of Takada, Tenryu, Jumbo and a fair amount of early NJPW junior stuff and late 80's stuff involving Liger. Fuck I'm gonna have to dig up a tape list.

This will help some.

 

Tatsumi Fujinami v Dynamite Kid (NJPW 02/05/80)

Ric Flair v Rick Martel (AJPW 10/21/85)

Akira Maeda v Tatsumi Fujinami (NJPW 06/12/86)

Dory & Terry Funk v Bruiser Brody & Jimmy Snuka (AJPW 12/13/81)

Nobuhiko Takada v Keichi Yamada (NJPW 05/01/86)

Jushin Liger v Naoki Sano (NJPW 08/13/89)

 

Jumbo and Flair had five matches against each other in the 80s.

 

10/09/81

06/08/83

04/24/85

10/19/85

 

And then one in '87 I can't remember.

 

I'd definitely nominate the first two. I'm not as big a fan of the third one as most, but it should still go here so people can see it and decide for themselves.

The Crush Gals (Lioness Asuka/Chigusa Nagayo) v. Devil Masami/Jaguar Yokota (6/28/84)

 

Wowzers. I highly recommend this to anyone who's not seen it yet.

Antonio Inoki v Andre the Giant (NJPW TV 06/22/84)

 

Two **** matches on one 60-minute TV show. Wow. This just confirms the belief I've always had that 1984 is the greatest year for wrestling ever, at least on a global level where every promotion everywhere is booming.

Jaguar Yokota/Mimi Hagiwara/Yukari Omori vs. Devil Masami/Leilani Kai/Velvet McIntyre (AJW - 5/15/82 - 2/3 Falls)

 

This might be tough to find. The VQ from the comp that I have it is what I would call 'good enough', but you guys might be able to find better.

 

Bob Backlund vs. Tatsumi Fujinami (New Japan - 8/5/82- WWF Title)

 

Jaguar Yokota vs. La Galactica (AJW - 9/17/84 - WWWA vs. UWA Title)
