MATCH : Kenta Kobashi v Mitsuharu Misawa

PROMOTION : Pro Wrestling NOAH

EVENT : Navigate for Evolution Day 9

VENUE : Budokan Hall, Tokyo

DATE : 1st March 2003

CHAMPIONSHIP : GHC Heavyweight Title

BACKGROUND : There is not too much I can say regarding the backstory and history that these two men have had in the ring that I haven't already written in previous inductions. The difference in this match was that they were continuing their feud in a new and upcoming promotion in Pro Wrestling NOAH where as previously they had been having showcase matches with each other in All Japan Pro Wrestling. In 2003 these men had firmly established themselves as the best Japanese wrestlers of all time and this match would simply be another treat for fans to see them at work once again.

MATCH REVIEW : As you can see this was yet another epic match brought to you by Mitsuharu Misawa and Kenta Kobashi. These men were easily capable of putting on great matches and it says a lot that this match is far from their greatest yet is probably the best match of 2003 in wrestling. An action packed bout with excellent power moves yet with impeccable pacing. Big credit has to go to these men for going over 30 minutes at their age whilst also making it original to their previous matches. A perfect reason why these two men were the first two names to be added to The Roll of Honour List.
