Also, New Japan vs. UWF in 1986.

Revolution Army was Ishin Gundan right?

Revolution Army = Kakumeigun was formed in Jan., '83 with Masa Saito (leader), Riki Choshu, Killer Khan, and Kuniaki Kobayashi

It became Ishin Gundan in the summer of '84 with additional members: Animal Hamaguchi, Isamu Teranishi, Yoshiaki Yatsu, Tiger Toguchi, and Hiro Matsuda (replacing Masa just for a tour as an "advisor"). By this time, of course, Hamaguchi and Teranishi had split with Rusher Kimura, who later joined the original UWF.

I'm pretty new to Showa, but I love the HansenTsuruta matches, and even the common WWE mark is aware of how great Tiger MaskDynamite Kid was.

I know this is borderline Showa but Jumbo vs. Misawa is my all-time favorite feud.

Nah... it represents the new era of All Japan. It was AFTER 1990 and shouldn't be considered as a Showa feud.

I agree with Fiasco Tiger Mask/Dynamite Kid was the greatest rivalvry in Showa Puroresu, the junoir heavyweights rule!

Now, now, I never said it was the GREATEST...it was one of the best though. I liked HansenTsuruta and New JapanUWF more though...

I'll defer to your judgement Hisa, but I think Misawa and Jumbo had their first match on 3/9/88 when Misawa was still under the mask. I kind of look at that feud as the transition between the 80s and the 90s for All Japan.

While I think Tiger Mask/Dynamite Kid was one of the greatest feuds of all time, from the matches I've been able to track down I really like the Funks/Hansen-Brody feud. I've only seen a few matches between the two, but man, they were great. I also really liked Vader/Inoki right after Vader debuted in New Japan.

Dude where have you been, Tenryu came back to All-Japan three years ago. To contact him, you'd have to learn Japanese and write to All-Japan's web, <a href='http://www.oudou.co.jp' target='_blank'>www.oudou.co.jp</a>. 70's - 80's stuff, I know of a good web, <a href='http://www.wrestling-high.com/tenryu' target='_blank'>www.wrestling-high.com/tenryu</a>, but it's also in Japanese and it has pictures of his moves mostly during 80's and 90's matches.
