Genichiro Tenryu vs. Riki Choshu from AJPW 1986


This was a really enjoyable match despite the shit finish! Tenryu was being Tenryu. He was in complete control and working as such. He was being his usual crafty self, and it was delightful.

The issue for him though was that he never really went for the kill or even set up for it. That allowed Choshu to make a comeback with just a few big maneuvers.

It looked like Choshu had all the momentum, but he could not keep Tenryu down. He eventually got so frustrated that he repeatedly attacked the referee until he got disqualified. Mehhh. (Still a good match though.) (***1/2)
