So this match finished #7 on the DVDVR 1980's All Japan set and I just don't understand that. Individually, three of the four men are awesome. Hansen is able to work light with Kimura and Baba, but his offense still looks great. Tenryu seemed really motivated in this match and his performance was pretty great, especially his tope to Baba to start the match. Baba's sell job was pretty incredible, also. He clearly wasn't in the same shape as Hansen or Tenryu, who had just recently lost the Triple Crown, but he was able to stay competitive with the two while still not making himself look too strong. Kimura, on the other hand, could barely run the ropes.

This match, however, doesn't hit 4* for me. I have it right at ***3/4. Maybe someone who is really high on this can point me to what I'm missing, but while this match was very good, I wouldn't by any means call it great.
