This was a 1992 Champion Carnival match.
There were like seven minutes of match here in a twenty-three package. Those seven minutes were very fucking competitive and thrilling. Too much of the match though was just sitting around doing nothing of value. Kobashi really had struggled up until this point in time in avoiding chinlock-fests for battles that go longer than ten-ish minutes. It’s been a major disappointment. Kawada submitted Kobashi cleanly. (**3/4)
