..... I have a few things that I need to address. Choketodeath
, I love your shit man, but I don't like this perception that just because a match is older that it's necessarily better than a match of higher quality from a more recent time... I watched every single match on this list atleast twice, so when I rank matches I don't look at the years, I just go with what I believe is legitimately better. For instance, I believe that Rock/Benoit fans (mostly ROCK) vastly overrate Benoit/Rock. While it's a fucking awesome match, I can name close to 10 Benoit matches from 2004 that are better.
Sure there are alot of matches on this last from 11-12 , but that's because Punk's reign (workrate wise) has been better then about 90 percent of title reigns ever in terms of match quality. I can think about 2-3 reigns that are up there with it, but I'm not just going to discredit Punk because he's been putting on classic after classic RECENTLY. It's irrelevant to me when the match actually takes place, just whether or not it's a good match or not. I just hate it when people are hesitant to place a match in their top (insert number here) list because it happened recently. That'd be like me saying that (for those of you who watch the NFL) Cam Newton broke a ton of NFL rookie passing/rushing TD/Yard records , but we have to wait a few years before we compare it to other all time great rookie QB seasons. It's completely absurd.....For instance, two of my top five matches EVER have taken place in 09-12 (Taker-HBK WM matches).
To each his own I guess. I just don't like when we hold historical matches in higher regard JUST because they're historical. I've incoherently rambled on for long enough, so I guess I'm going to shut my mouth now. On a side not, I'd love to hear what you think of Punk's 11-12 WWE Championship matches and how they compare all time, as well as discuss 20-11 on my list and what could potentially be the top 10. LOVE YOU GUYS !
