ALL JAPAN RETRO SPECIAL #9 - TOSHIAKI KAWADA (5th in a series of shows highlighting one of All Japan's stars. Some good stuff here. I've got a DVD master so VQ is EX.)
Toshiaki Kawada vs Masa Fuchi, 9/15/87 (Good match until Hiromichi Fuyuki runs in for no real reason and starts attacking Fuchi) TOSHIAKI KAWADA & HIROMICHI FUYUKI VS SHUNJI TAKANO & SHINICHI NAKANO, 9/15/88 (Excellent match that sees Kawada & Fuyuki win All-Asia tag titles.) Toshiaki Kawada vs Kenta Kobashi, 7/11/89 (Good match that's completely different from their later ones. Love it!) Toshiaki Kawada vs Steve Williams, 4/16/94 (Finals of the '94 Champ Carny and one of the more over-rated matches of the last 15 years) Toshiaki Kawada & Akira Taue vs Gary Albright & Yoshihiro Takayama, 3/1/97 (Fun match for the Double Tag titles that sees Takayama submit.)
