[1996-07-24-AJPW-Summer Action Series] Masanobu Fuchi vs Tsuyoshi Kikuchi

Recommended Posts

A long-overdue payoff to their title bouts early in the decade. It's a bit slow at times, but as a MATCH it's a lot better than the famous quasi-squash from 2/28/93.

A little on the disappointing side--the first half of this was wrestled in slow motion, and not in a subtle '70s-style way. There were just stretches of neither guy doing much of anything, without even any cool work from Fuchi taking apart one of Kikuchi's limbs. The drama down the stretch is better, and this pays off a VERY long-running storyline and rivalry that stretches back 6 years, but it's clear that Kikuchi has lost several steps since his peak.
