ALL JAPAN NEW YEAR'S GIANT SERIES '98 (Another incredibly hard-to-find video from All Japan, this is a great tape! A pair of outstanding **** or better matches highlight the action. I've got a 1st gen convert so quality is EX!)
MITSUHARA MISAWA VS JUN AKIYAMA, 1/26/98 (****1/2 - Akiyama totally dominates and carries the action in this match. Granted, Misawa is working on bad knees in this match, but Akiyama is clearly the superior wrestler at this poing. Great match!) KENTA KOBASHI & JOHNNY ACE VS TOSHIAKI KAWADA & AKIRA TAUE, 1/25/98 (Kawada & Taue win the Double Tag Titles in this outstanding match!) Giant Baba, Mitsuhara Misawa, & Manukea Mossman vs Toshiaki Kawada, Kenta Kobashi, & Masa Fuchi, 1/23/98 (clips) Hiro Hase vs Tsuyoshi Kikuchi, 1/3/98
