Flair/Morton was so good the first time I watched I was so into the action it took a while to realize there was no commentary. I thought they worked the injury into the match well too. Some good visuals of the crimson mask and plenty of intensity.
Oh crap yeah thanks for reminding me, I forgot Flair/Morton. Probably Flair at his most purely EVIL. That could be #2 for cages and if not it's definitely #3. #4 at absolute absolute absolute minimum. People need to watch Flair/Dusty as well.
Flair is just awesome in cage matches. His Halloween Havoc match with Hogan in 1994 was pure fun ride to watch. Flair/Orton from Taboo Tuesday 04 was a bit short for me but really good. The handshake at the end was a great moment.
However, I always thought the highly acclaimed Flair/Race Starrcade '83 was good too but not one of the greatest cage matches ever.
That's funny that we started talking about Cage Matches, as I was in the middle of compiling a list of all the aired Cage matches in WWE history to make a top 25.. Off the top of my head the GOAT Cage match is Trips-Flair TT 05 with a few coming very, very close. That's probably going to change as I get deeper into this however. I know one thing for certain, it takes a fucking LONGGG time to just compile a list of all the aired cage matches, let alone actually WATCH them (have a majority of them already rated in notepad anyways so that helps)
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
If we're talking WWE only then I think Backlund/Slaughter destroys everything pretty easily. I can't think of any that come close. Hardy/Edge is one of those matches I know is great, but I don't see "IT" in it. Another "I'll Watch It Again Sometime" match.
too many mixed signals. I mean, i dont get it? Is the point of the cage to keep one of them from running away so they can get an ass kicking? Is the point of two guys who hate each other? Is it for one of them run? Whats with the fucking door too?
I mean, I dont get it. And adding a title into the mix just makes shit more confusing
