I've heard a lot of great things about All Japan Pro Wrestling (especially from 1992-1999).

Can anyone recommend to me the very best of AJPW from this particular time frame?

Here's my five favorite All Japan matches of the 1990's:

1) Mitsuharu Misawa vs Toshiaki Kawada
6/3/94 Triple Crown
Without a doubt, the greatest wrestling match I've ever seen. The physicality and athleticism are breathtaking. Perfection.

2) Mitsuharu Misawa & Kenta Kobashi vs Toshiaki Kawada & Akira Taue
6/9/95 World Tag Titles
The build toward this match was incredibly heated. Kobashi sacrificing himself for Misawa is excruciating to watch, as Taue and Kawada destroy his leg. Tremendous finish.

3) Mitsuharu Misawa vs Kenta Kobashi
1/20/97 Triple Crown
Misawa and Kobashi have faced off in numerous classic singles matches since 1990 (including most recently, the 2003 Match of the Year for NOAH 3/1/03). This match is by far their finest.

4) Mitsuharu Misawa & Jun Akiyama vs Toshiaki Kawada & Akira Taue
12/06/96 Real World Tag League Finals '96

5) Jumbo Tsuruta vs Mitsuharu Misawa
Jumbo is God, but Misawa finally breaks through!

I feel like this topic has been brought up a million times before but for some reason a search for "All Japan" turns up nil. Or maybe I just suck.

Anyway though, before he disappeared DarkPegasus left this little gem:

His website is apparently still up and running (with tape reviews), although I haven't really investigated beyond the index.

I hope I'm not tugging on Superman's cape by responding in a thread that hasn't had a response for two days. I'm just glad this got so much play while I was off working. Someone mentioned Psicosis earlier. Damn, how did I forget him?
