Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Masanobu Fuchi from AJPW 1992

This was a 1992 Champion Carnival match.

Doing “more with less” is such a cliche when it comes to wrestling, but it’s a very apt description for this match nonetheless. This was the only Fuchi/Jumbo singles ever, and the crowd was all in on rooting for Fuchi in it. Jumbo embraced being a bit of a bully as he refused to do clean breaks on MULTIPLE occasions and settled to just slowly dominate Fuchi throughout. This did not achieve the heights that were clearly possible based on the opening minutes, but it was quite fun all the same. (***1/4)
