*ahem* NJPW themselves aren't shy about getting that match out there:

I'd also go for the Takada / Mutoh match from 1996 for a similar theme, although in that case it's tempered by NJPW reminding you that as much as they're badmouthing WWE recently, they also threw away MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS by not allowing an outsider to get a win (well, later in that particular storyline when Mutoh went over Takada clean as a sheet - the result in the Jan 4th show was... interesting).

(See also: Kawada's participation in the IWGP championship tourney in 2001. He had a real good match with Tenzan before the inexplicable final with Sasaki, though.)
