TAPE 247

Quality: EX

Length: 2.75 hrs (DVD)

ALL JAPAN VS NEW JAPAN SUPER FIGHT - 2/10/90 (Historic interpromotional show that also featured guys from the almost-dead AWA. Lots of good stuff here, the opening tag and the Vader/Hansen are must-see. Quality is EX.)
JUSHIN LIGER & AKIRA NOGAMI VS WILD PEGASUS & NAOKI SANO (Pegasus is Chris Benoit - great, great match) Hiro Hase, Kuniaki Kobayashi & Kantaro Hoshino vs Tatsutoshi Goto, Hiro Saito & Norio Honaga Larry Zbyszko vs Mr. Saito (Zbyszko tones down the stalling and he & Saito end up putting on a match that's much better than it had any right to be. Saito wins the AWA World title) Bam Bam Bigelow vs Koji Kitao (Not sure, but this may be Kitao's debut match) Takayuki Iizuka vs Osamu Matsuda Brad Rheingans vs Victor Zangiev Steve Williams vs Salman Hashimikov Stan Hansen vs Vader (This is the infamous match where Vader gets his right eye knocked out of its socket, forcing him to actually PUSH the eye back into place! Amazingly, he continues working! The match itself is only ok, terribly overrated by some, but still a must-see!) Antonio Inoki & Seiji Sakaguchi vs Shinya Hashimoto & Masa Chono (Lou Thesz guest ref)
