TAPE 375

Quality: EX (1st Gen Convert)

Length: 2 hrs (DVD)

ALL JAPAN REAL WORLD TAG LEAGUE 1986-88 (This tape is one big "WTF?" after another. Don't get me wrong, the action on here is excellent, but there's some drawbacks, too, as you'll see. In addition to the three matches listed, you get a bunch of highlights as well. I've got a 1st gen convert so quality is EX.)
Jumbo Tsuruta & Genichiro Tenryu vs Stan Hansen & Ted Dibiase, 12/12/86 (After watching a series of highlights that feature one screwjob finish after another, we get this train wreck. A countout finish - in the Finals, no less - in 8 minutes? WTF?) Jumbo Tsuruta & Yoshiaki Yatsu vs Bruiser Brody & Jimmy Snuka, 12/11/87 (As if to top the previous year, we get this - tons of screwjob highlights again, followed by this match. Only they DON'T SHOW THE FINISH! And this isn't even the finals?! WTF?) GENICHIRO TENRYU & TOSHIAKI KAWADA VS STAN HANSEN & TERRY GORDY, 12/16/88 (I'm pretty sure this is the '88 Finals and it almost makes up for the previous two years. Great match that sees Hansen & Gordy do a great job of putting over Kawada before killing him off. They then beat the hell out of Tenryu before pinning him. Tenryu jobs! Holy shit, a star gets pinned in mid-80s AJ!)
