Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Jumbo Tsuruta from AJPW 1992

This was a 1992 Champion Carnival match.

It was basically always fun when these two went at it, and this was very clearly not the exception. They had to stretch things out to force the thirty minute draw which dragged the match down mind you. They mostly overcame that though with consistent intensity and physicality. Middle Aged Jumbo was just such a great wrestler at this time. His face revealed a constant mix of frustration, anger, and exasperation at the fact that he still had to fight these young people so often. It was grand. (****)
