Re: What was the last great match you saw
Ishii/Tanahashi at G-1. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that match. I've rewatched it a few times now, and it still blows me away. It's got an old-school "burning" feel, like classic AJPW. Strong-Style, crowd heat (and rare Japanese booing - of Tanahashi no less!), psychology, high spots, unpredictability, and a massively epic finish. I think I've seen footage of maybe a half dozen Steiner Screwdrivers in my life watching pro wrestling. It's one of those moves you just don't do, never do. You can't hardly do it, because doing it correctly requires coming a fraction of an inch away from legit killing somebody. Ishii's was the best I've seen anyone other than Scott do it. Jumped out of my seat. *****
