[1993-01-15-AJPW-New Year's Giant Series] Mitsuharu Misawa & Kenta Kobashi vs Akira Taue & Masanobu Fuchi

Recommended Posts

Masa Fuchi puts on a clinic here during a buildup tag to Kobashi vs Taue. Taue and Kobashi do great as well, especially Kobashi, but this is Fuchi's match.

It certainly is, Who, as he wrestles the vast majority of it by himself after Misawa and Kobashi take out Taue. The two-on-one is becoming more and more prevalent in All-Japan tags, and I don't like it at all, especially when Taue's on his feet and almost ready to go. You'd think these guys would be doing whatever they can to get back into the match as soon as they were able, but they don't. Taue could have been back in the match at least two minutes sooner than he was. Worse yet, the payback spot on Kobashi where he gets laid out on the floor happens too late in the match to do any good, as Misawa's in cement mixer mode and goes through Fuchi with ease, while a miraculously semi-healed Kobashi holds off Taue, who gets some measure of revenge with a postmatch attack.

 

The in-ring work was nice here, but the bad booking choices negate it. I'm not really looking forward to too many more All-Japan tags like this one, regardless of the greatness of the workers involved.
