With all of the sick match-ups we were bound to have at least one this weekend. Roode vs. Nakamura from Takeover made the cut for me. That was everything a title match should be.

Meltz gave Okada v Shibata 5 stars, Okada's second this year, 3rd NJPW overall

Well... I guess have to watch this at some point today then, huh? I'll add it to the queue right after Smackdown.

I've still got most of the Beyond show and all of the RevPro show to watch, LOL. And it gets longer because I'm pretty sure RevPro has a big show this weekend, too. I've seen the two matches I care about from Joey Janella's Spring Break, but at this point I think I'm going to give up on the rest of that show, plus Best of the Best. Plus I still need to finish FIP Everything Burns 2017 and the What Culture show from January (plus I heard that Bulletproof was pretty good, too, so I have to watch that. And wXw Ambition. And a whole bunch of other wXw stuff from December to February).

I'm shocked Dave only gave that match five. That has got to be one one of the top ten matches I've ever seen.

for reasons completely biased, that Team Ricochet vs Team Ospreay match from WrestleCon was a 10 for me

Guys. I just watched Balor v Nakamura from NXT, and I don't know if my standards are the same as you (as I only really watch WWE), but man, that counts as 5 stars for me. I had goosebumps.

I think that was like, the last period of consistent greatness from NXT, where they had that match, Aries vs. Nakamura, Zayn vs. Nakamura, and the two American Alpha vs. Revival matches all in, like, two and a half months.

It doesn't hurt that Balor and Nakamura are my two favourite guys right now. But Zayn and Aries v Nakamura sound fantastic, I will have to go watch those next.

I think they were the two Takeover shows. Zayn vs. Nakamura definitely was (Dallas) and if Balor vs. Nakamura wasn't at a Takeover then Aries vs. Nakamura was.

Dave gave the BOSJ finals the full 5. That's the fourth for New Japan this year.

You were absolutely right. I haven't watched Aries v Nakamura yet but Zayn v Nakamura was fantastic!

I love the WWE Network sometimes. :P

Yeah. I'm sitting on a pile of stuff that I've heard is supposed to be be really awesome but just haven't gotten around to watching yet (Eddie vs. Brock, plus some of the PPV main events in spring 2007), but my desire to watch current stuff and or ECW always gets in the way.

Well... it WAS better than the last one, so it would have to be at least six, right?

I'm also shocked that Dave didn't give the Jr. Heavyweights the full five based on the way he was talking about that match.

i wonder if i'll ever go Spinal Tap on a match and turn it up to 11/10

sometimes i feel like Dave won't do 2 five+ stars in the same show
