Way Back Wednesday- Randy Savage vs Jushin Liger

Today's match that I'm featuring comes to us from New Japan Pro Wrestling from 1996. This was obviously from a time when they used their working relationship with WCW to their advantage, instead of the other way around. 
In this regard they got one of wrestling's greatest names in "Macho Man" Randy Savage to come over for a show. And who did they put him up against? They gave him a legend of their own in Jushin "Thunder" Liger. 
It's definitely a match that would come out of the A1 Cup fantasy tournament, which would end the way most probably would have booked it. No spoilers, but it does end with both men showing respect towards each other.
