Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Stan Hansen from AJPW 1992


This was for Jumbo’s Triple Crown Championship.

This was pretty damn great. It felt like two old gunslingers at the end of their journeys (both would of course basically go for another decade) going all out just to win one final battle.

Jumbo came out firing and went right after Hansen’s lariat arm. It was great stuff. Hansen was able to fight back and went after one of Jumbo’s legs. It was similarly brutal and great.

Both guys were left hobbled and barely standing at the end. Hansen didn’t have much left in the tank, but he managed to throw out a couple of desperation lariats to pull off the victory and win the belts. Loved this one. (****1/4)
