Just watched the Montreal Screw Job last night.

All I gotta say is WOW. What a match. A "Slobberknocker" as JR put it. This brawl was on its way to being a potential 5 star match in my opinion. The tension was incredible. From HBK and Rick Rude and co making their long entrance, and Bret Hart too, it had one of the best big match feels that I can remember. The brawling was awesome. In the crowd, up the ramp, everywhere. Michaels was getting an insane amount of heat, and Bret was the unequivocal hero. So cool. And then the in-ring work was just as exciting. Really beautiful stuff, all of the submissions: Brets figure four on the ring post (probably my favorite move of all-time), regular figure fours, the infamous Sharpshooter. They worked a terrific match.

And then Hebner calls for the bell.

A feeling of incompleteness.

Those are just a handful of a massive amount of great 80's matches.
Thanks mate.

Not a problem at all. The DiBiase/Flair match is an underrated classic and it was WAY ahead of it's time, that's for damn sure. All I'll say is that there's quite a bit of blood from DiBiase in the very early goings.

Ric Flair
Ricky Steamboat
Barry Windham
Bob Backlund
Jake Roberts
Ted DiBiase
Randy Savage
Bill Dundee
Fantastics
Midnight Express
Rock n Roll Express

Will watch that match. A match involving Flair that I recently watched this week was against Mr. Perfect (1993). It was a loser leaves town match. Another classic match. In my opinion, it should have been on a PPV card not on RAW but still that doesn't take away from the match.

It's a shame that wresting (or WWE) nowadays doesn't produce these great matches as much. Even the promos are lacking today. Sure we saw a great promo by Cena this past RAW but it just isn't consistent enough.

I don't know what year this was in but it's a classic from Piper...

Gotta say this is a very underrated match. The irony is that in Bret and Shawn's last match they finally got it right. My favorite one-on-one of theirs easily. The hatred is there and it's very real. The crowd is also very much there. I was SO pissed this wasn't on the Bret and Shawn set. In terms of matches its the only one I care to have of theirs. I already have the Iron man and with the possible exception of Bret/Shawn '92.

The 80's is the best era in wrestling history, in my opinion.

There are a lot of great matches, Lawler, Flair and Terry Funk are the bosses here. To name a few...

Jerry Lawler vs Bill Dundee 6/6/1983 & 30/12/1985(GOAT)
Jerry Lawler vs Terry Funk - Memphis 23/3/1981 & 6/4/1981
Jerry Lawler vs Dutch Mantell - Memphis 29/3/1982 & 22/3/1982
Jerry Lawler vs Austin Idol - Memphis 27/4/1987
Jerry Lawler vs Randy Savage - Memphis 3/6/1985
Jerry Lawler vs Ric Flair - Memphis 14/8/1982
Andre the Giant vs Stan Hansen - NJPW 23/9/1981
El Satanico vs Gran Cochisse - CMLL 14/9/1984
Jumbo Tsuruta & Genichiro Tenryu vs Riki Choshu & Yoshiaki Yatsu - AJPW 28/1/1986
Jumbo Tsuruta vs Genichiro Tenryu - AJPW 6/5/1989
Dick Murdoch vs Barry Windham - UWF 11/7/1987
Ric Flair vs Rikcy Steamboat trilogy & the two house show matches in 1989.
Yoshiaki Fujiwara vs Kazuo Yamazaki - UWF 24/7/1989
Yoshiaki Fujiwara vs Riki Choshu - NJPW 6/9/1987
Terry Funk vs Stan Hansen - AJPW 14/4/1983
Terry Funk & Dory Funk vs Stan Hansen & Terry Gordy - AJPW 31/8/1983
Terry Funk & Dory Funk vs Stan Hansen & Brusier Brody - AJPW 8/12/1984
Jushin Liger vs Naoki Sano - NJPW 10/8/1989

A lot of Ric Flair stuff like his matches with Wahoo McDaniel, Koko B Ware, Kerry Von Erich, Barry Windham, Terry Funk, Dusty Rhodes, Ricky Morton, etc.

A very underrated match in my opinion, or at least people not spoke often about it, great limbwork on Savage by Bret and a perfect selling, he creates a lot of drama in this match too, great choise.

Checking out the 5/31 match soon
Benoit vs Austin 5/31/01: **** 1/4. Great match, some spots looked fucked though (Austins boston crab, Benoits second sharpshooter).
