Yes. I like how Hogan and Kurt resolved their issues at the end, The only thing I didn't really like is that AJ turned heel when he was champion.

Why did they need to do a screwjob in the first place? If AJ was the champion, why not just have him get DQed or counted out? And if they (AJ, Flair, and Hebner) were going to do a screwjob, why wait until the sharpshooter. AJ had Kurt in various submissions a whole bunch of times before that during the match?

The stuff they did after the match ended also made no sense. Why did anyone think Kurt would be allowed to quit if, earlier in the same show, Bobby Lashley tried to quit and was told that he couldn't. because he had a contract.
And why would Kurt assume that Hogan was involved in screwing him if Hogan was the one who nullified the whole "kast chance" stip from AJ and Kurt's match on the PPV specifically for the sake of giving him this match?

ok, those things. but like i said, aside from the crappy ending, the aftermath shouldn't really take from the match itself.

Fair enough, but just the first two things are gaping plot holes within the story of the match itself.

If there was ever a 5 star comedy match, it would be Chuck Taylor vs. Archibald Peck from CHIKARA It's How You Play the Game.

Just added Akiyama & Misawa vs. Dr. Death & Johnny Ace from 6/7/1996- one of the best jobs of telling the standard "babyface in peril" story that I have ever seen. Just amazing storytelling.

Upon rewatching it, I have just added Dragon vs. Nigel from ROH's Sixth Anniversary Show. This is the FOURTH match between those two that i have given the full 10.

1 - really?? i hated the work by santo and octagon in this match, i probably need to watch it again. You should hook up this show and review it. Now that i think about it, i feel a bit inclined to lend you my AAA shows for you to review :-?

2 - is this the "Ten Thousand Chop Fest" match??

3 - have you seen KENTA vs Davey Richards from Supercard of Honor IV i think??

1. I have been trying to. I can't find two of the matches, though.

2. No. I hate that f*cking spot.

3. Yes, but not in a while. I think I initially gave it 9.5/10.

The eight man tag match at King of Trios 2012 blows this match out of the water.

I admit I've never seen a game of duck duck goose in a wrestling ring until I saw that match.
