@ Mighty Krang. Finlay is super. Matches with Benoit and Regal are his peak in terms of nasty and ungodly violence, but he's got a style that can work well with anyone and he's an underrated babyface whether he's portraying a more stereotypical comedy/sportsmanlike British babyface or a tough as nails babyface trying to overcome a vicious heel. The Callihan matches in 2011 and 2012 were the peak of his indy comeback but he had a number of gems in Britain and America/Europe. There's one match vs Dick Togo that will haunt me with it not turning up.

Agreed with Yeah1993 vis a vis the WCW list. Rude/Steamboat is far too low but at least its on there. Stuff like Mysterio/Ultimo feels like your typical crowd pleasing match even if it doesn't belong anywhere near that list. War Games 1992 being included is a nice touch, no Regal/Finlay, R n R Express/Midnight Express, Southern Boys/Midnight Express. The 2/22/92 8 man Worldwide tag was never going to be a match that would turn up on an 'official list', same with the 5/24/92 6 man featuring Steamboat/Rhodes/Koloff vs Arn/Eaton/Larry Z.

Said it before when discussing the Hardys, Jeff has the Morton/Steamboat connection and charisma that drives the fans into a frenzy and generates an atmosphere/reaction almost every time, but Matt is definitely closer to Morton/Steamboat in terms of mechanical babyface work and selling/timing/structuring his matches and comebacks.
