Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I stopped using the 5-star system around the end of 2009 when I began to watch more lucha and understand the style and watched older wrestling that came before the system along with British and BattlArts/UWF-i style wrestling and realized that the 5-star system for me is more centered to modern (mid-80s on) American/Japanese wrestling. Andre/Hansen is my favorite match but how could one rate that as there's not much wrestling at all being used, it's chaotic in structure and it ends in a double DQ. Even if the ending made sense, a lot of people would see that it loses points just because of it.

Instead of reiterating alot of the matches that have been put up already, here are some that I've seen since I had dropped the system and thought could be contenders for 5-stars.
