Also, while you're watching 90's All Japan stuff, you should check you Williams & Ace vs. Misawa & Akiyama from June 7 1996. I don't think I've ever seen the babyface in peril story told better.
Good match. Exceptionally good, in fact. But, for some reason, not quite perfect.

Re: Your 5 star matches

Went back and watched some important/personal favorite AJPW matches (all focused around the "Four Corners" guys), with the intent of actually rating them this time. These are the ones that got a perfect rating. *Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Jumbo Tsuruta - June 8, 1990 *Mitsuharu Misawa, Toshiaki Kawada, & ...

Really? That's surprising. The ending (i.e. Ziggler stuff) was great but were you that into the Big Show turn?
I was so caught up in the match that it took my be surprise, actually. That whole match had me buzzing.

Re: Your 5 star matches

Thanks, guys. :) Also, I agree with cero. That match became great the second the Wyatts stepped in the ring. By the time it was over, it was one of my top 10 all-time favorites, for sure.
I kinda feel the exact same about Michaels vs. Flair at WrestleMania XXIV.

Re: Your 5 star matches

I pretty much decided to keep the list narrowed down to matches that have taken place in the time since I became a fan. But the Flaj/Steamboat matches were AMAZING. As was the Flair/Funk I Quit match.

Re: Your 5 star matches

I think the edge (no pun intended) that the TLC at SummerSlam 2000 had over the others was that it was the first. They set out o prove something that night and they succeeded. And BRM, seen them all, all GREAT matches, but nothing I'd call perfect.

Re: Your 5 star matches

A lot of things about Meltzer's list pissed me off. So I thought a lot about my own 5-str matches list. And after careful conaideration, here it is.

So I'd assume you are looking forward to this year's match at Mania?
I've already got the money set aside to order the event. So, yes.

I like a ground-based/striking style. What would be the called the "indie" style, I suppose. It's kinda MMA-esque.

Re: RAW Discussion 2/6

With it being the final event before Mania, I'd imagine so. Don't wanna leave that book open, considering they'll have to build to Rock/Cena. Rock hiding in an ambulance perhaps? Or Ryder Nah. I think we'll get a legit ending. Although, I don't see the Ryder scenario as a far cry. Although, bringin...
