Ah I overlooked the Ironman there. Aye the Survivor Series triple threat tag caught my eye to, but I thought you were referring to past matches you've admitted to not liking as making you smile. This is what I get for overthinking things .
I thought Ironman would have been a lock, tbhayley. It's the worst.
3 way tag was up in the air. It's good. 5 stars though? I've seen WAY better matches that don't even earn 5 stars from me. So the curve among the logic there is pretty wide.
I just spent 5 minutes trying to get the sleeve off the Rey Mysterio DVD. Thing wasn't stuck or anything, but its like its too small to actually fir around the normal DVD casing. Takes some fucking effort to get it off lol. I should watch it now while I can get to the discs .
Santo/Casas, Bockwinkel/Hennig and the first WarGames sprung to mind. I said 'IDK if it's top 5-10', which is a stretch because looking at it on paper I'm convinced it's top ten, but I think I'd take Santo/Casas, a Flair/Windham (whichever the best one is....IDR), Murdoch/Windham, and Fujiwara/Choshu over it. So yeah, that's four.....I guess it's top 5 fo me? I'd have to watch everything and actually think about it (which I ain't doing).
I guess there's only a couple there I think are DEFINITELY better, but I was never sure when saying the original statement anyway. Goddamn...I think every match I've mentioned here has an actual shot at the #1 spot if I were doing a top matches of 87.
I still think Han v Tamura 9/26/97 is the best sub-fifteen minute match ever. Shit....it might be sub-ten minutes.
Using the title belt almost like a whip into Windham's face.
Forgot about Bock/Hennig, though its been a while since I saw their series.
Think the best Flair/Windham from '87 is the Worldwide encounter. Want to say 1/20 but could be thinking of Misawa/Kawada 1/20 from 10 years later. BOTB II '86 is their other best match, with the Crockett Cup match from April '87 being very good but below Worldwide and BOTB II imo.
I consider Han/Tamura 1/22/97 to be their best and one of the greatest matches ever, but its not like the 9/25/96 or 9/26/97 encounters are anything to be sniffed at either. Demonstrates Han's underrated ability to inject storytelling and drama into each exchange whilst using his immense presence to create a pulsating atmosphere whenever he looks threatened or in trouble.
Forgot about that belt shot. Gotta love Murdoch's commitment to beating the piss out of somebody.
That Juvi/Kash match was indeed excellent. Randomly watched it a month or so ago. Very good selling, well worked exchanges and a good finish. Didn't hate Kennedy either as the cocky Network exec trying to pass off the in ring action as something that reflected well on him.
Watching Timeline with Larry Z. Then I need to get back to video editing. Then I'll probably watch some more BROCK from SD 02. And of course I need to watch Impact and SD from this week, downloaded Impact, just getting SD now.
