Akira Taue & Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Kenta Kobashi & Tsuyoshi Kikuchi from AJPW 1992

taue

This was really fun stuff. Both teams were just going for it from beginning to end and there were lots of great touches throughout.

Kikuchi being the perpetual underdog throughout was wonderful. He showed so much fire, and the crowd loved everything he did pretty much.

Jumbo embracing being a heel in the match added a ton as well. He was just awesome in tag matches in this period. One of the best tag wrestlers ever, as he just made every moment count.

While this was probably not one of the very best matches from the KING’S ROAD days, this was still quite good and worth checking out. Jumbo and Taue won cleanly. (***3/4)
