Just finished watching The Great Sasuke vs Wild Pegasus (Benoit) from Super J Cup 1994. All I got to say is WHAT A MATCH. Not sure if I can go full 5 with it yet but I definitely need to watch more stuff from Japan. It sucks that I don't understand a word from the commentary but as long as there's noise, I'm fully into it. That top rope gutwrench suplex was an awesome finish.

EDIT: Don't get too excited about Benoit/Finlay from early February. They barely get any time to wrestle. Thankfully, they got the opportunity on May and delivered to perfection.
Watch Wild Pegasus vs Black Tiger (Benoit vs Eddie) from BOSJ 1996 when you get chance. Their best match together and one of the best juniors match from New Japan in the 90s. Benoit vs Regal from New Japan in 1995 is also another great bout, as well as Regal challenging for the IWGP Title vs Shinya Hashimoto in '96.

The Liger/Sano series from '89-90 is also incredible and arguably produces the best Juniors match of the decade in their final encounter. Can't recall if they're on youtube/dailymotion but should be able to point you in the direction of a link if you require.

Been meaning to watch the Benoit/Eddie match for a while, just haven't gotten around to it since most of my "wrestling time" is spent on my 'journey' project and that takes so much of the time that I don't get much to spare for single matches to check out.

Thanks for all the recommendations, I'm going to definitely put them in my list of matches to check out asap.

Time to catch up on stuff and update THE LIST.

Team Hell No v Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara - Smackdown (2/1/13)
Good, fun TV tag match worked at a nice pace with a bunch of cool looking moves and sequences. Very easy to sit through and enjoy from start to finish. Sin Cara actually looked good for a change. Not sure if that's a testament to how good Bryan is or if he's just better suited to working tag matches. Probably a bit of both. Either way this is worth a watch.

Alberto Del Rio v Dolph Ziggler - Smackdown (2/1/13)
Also well worth watching. Why has no one mentioned this? It's not great or anything but I thought it was a really good showcase for Del Rio as the fighting babyface champion. Definitely starting to appreciate him in that role. He's good at making himself seem vulnerable with his bumping and selling (Orton could learn a thing or two in that regard) and his offense is great, case in point being stiff shots to Ziggler's back followed by a backstabber in the ropes here. Ziggler btw takes the best turnbuckle corner bumps in the business. Dude flies and EATS it. These two have a great match in them and I'm thinking we'll get the chance to see it this year on PPV.

Chris Jericho v CM Punk - Raw (2/4/13)
I might be the only person who doesn't think this is a great match. I enjoyed it live but watching it again I don't think I'd add it to my list. Up until they started teasing finishers and going back and forth down the stretch the match was just kind of there and the crowd being SHIT didn't help it one bit. Overall it's still a good match and I liked some of the stuff they did. Thought they did a good job building to Jericho getting the Walls on Punk, and Punk being unable to lift Jericho for the GTS after being in the Walls was a neat little touch that I appreciated. Also thought Punk's counter to the Walls which led to the finish was good. It tends to look contrived at times but it didn't here. I'll probably give this another re-watch somewhere down the line to see if I like it more but for now it's in the 'good not great' category and lacking that little bit extra to make it onto my list.

So we're still left with:

1. Dolph Ziggler v Sheamus - Main Event (1/9/13)
2. CM Punk v Ryback - Raw (1/7/13)

Similar thoughts on the tag with you. Was a very fun match and I loved the Mysterio/Bryan exchanges in particular.

Only caught what I think was a shortened version of Ziggler/Del Rio. The one I saw went about 8 mins and truthfully I wasn't overly impressed by it. Thought it was largely a collection of signature offence mixed in with a couple of fun Langston interference spots. Probably was a condensed version of the actual match as I don't recall there being a backstabber though.

Show/Del Rio Smackdown LMS is still my number 1 match from the company so far. Pretty tame start for WWE so far in 2013 compared to usual.

Fairly positive those are my exact ratings, although I gave Bryan/Sheamus -*****.

**** for Trips/Sucka? Didn't enjoy it that much. Drawn out, boring, a lil sloppy and pointless storyline that had the OBLIGATION of giving Book the title. Too bad HHH was more Super than Cena in 03. The Harlem Hangover was an overall WM 19 highlight though.

Trips/Booker is pretty underrated imo. I think people let the finish affect their overall perception of the match. If anything, the finish only helps.
