AJW Survival Shout in Korakuen 8/19/1990 - Jungle Jack - Aja Kong and Bison Kimura vs Bull Nakano and Grizzly Iwamoto

AJW Survival Shout in Korakuen 8/19/1990 - Jungle Jack - Aja Kong and Bison Kimura vs Bull Nakano and Grizzly Iwamoto





















"Hey! That's my partner! Stop that" - Aja | "Back off" - Bull | "OK" - Aja















The finish, though Bull and Aja could have cared less at that point.







Bison Kimura beat Grizzy Iwamoto with a random german but this wasn't about that at all. THIS. WAS. A. WAR. This match was fricking insane. Bell to bell just absolute violence and war. And it was incredible.

The story of the match was the Aja vs Bull feud. This match was building up a future match of theirs and did it ever. Two hosses fighting to be the king of the monsters and putting each other through hell to get there. They sold, they no sold and the went for blood.

They hit each other with chairs, canes, trashcans and whatever else they could get a hold of and they just never let up on each other. It was one of the best brawls I've ever seen.

There were so many good stories here from Bison and Grizzly not being able to touch either Bull or Aja as they were just too strong to be hurt by their weak sauce. At times, Bison and Griz were looking for tags and saves and Aja/Bull just let them fight it out and often completely ignored their shots, while focusing on the prize of each others heads. The match even ended and neither Aja or Bison cared as they were past that and kept going after each other. They then screamed and cried at each other while challenging each other to another match.

This was everything great about pro wrestling. You had the larger than life characters. You had the hate. You had the violence and you had the believably as hate trumped all here and they fought for every move.

I'm almost speechless here because this was just everything you dream about out of pro wrestling and more. The finish was the only critique here as it was out of nowhere, but this was no longer a match and it didn't matter who won at that point anyway, because everyone took so many causalities that everyone lost while the viewers won.

Rating:*****. A must see war.
