I rewatched Misawa/Jumbo from 8/6/90 today. It's as great as I remembered and an absolute 5 star classic. My favorite thing about it is how the crowd gradually gets more and more behind Misawa as it goes on.

I still prefer their rematch though. Jumbo's performance in that one is 5 star worthy on it's own, and then if you add in the fact the story is amazing and it's Misawa he's wrestling, you have one of the best matches of all time.

Yeah, 9/1/1990 is one of the best matches ever. ************* stars.

You're banned but I'll quote this anyway. Rock and Benoit were really good then. Eddie has some nice stuff. Also watch lucha you prick.
I'll vouch for a stellar year of Tajiri in 2000. Soon after ECW finally made regular television in the Fall of 99, there was an exodus of many top talent to WWF, namely Tazz and the Dudleys. Subsequently, guys like Tajiri, Super Crazy, Guido and Mikey Whipwreck really had the opportunity to steal the show and did so frequently.

When McQueen makes his triumphant return, I second this highlighted comment.

Ah, thats the date. I couldn't remember. I'll have to d'lo it off youtube if it's still on there. Am I right in saying that the 9/1 match didn't recieve 5 stars from Meltzer? It's not in puroclassics list of 5 star puro matches.

That match got ****1/2 stars. Neat link here for AJPW that don't hit 5*.

Watched Misawa vs Kobashi from 3/1/03 for the first time last night. That match deserves infinity stars as well. Misawa was a boss. His suplex on the floor had my jaw on the floor, it was just incredible. Actually watched it twice last night but with my wife and she was amazed Misawa could still do everything from 1990 with his age and the weight he put on.

I don't like Akiyama very much but after the above match I figured to give Kobashi vs Akiyama from 7/10/04 a chance and I was just bored to tears. Maybe it was a good match and maybe it deserves 5* but it reminded me why I dislike Akiyama.

I can't believe it didn't get rated 5 by them. It's one of the best matches ever and better than a lot of the matches from AJPW that are rated that high.

Akiyama/Kobashi is one of my favorite matches, I like it more than Misawa/Kobashi from 03.

The "high end" matches were REALLY fucking great, though. Kawada v Tenryu, Kawada v Sasaki, Kawada/Tenryu v Hansen/Kea, Kobashi v Akiyama (twice), Misawa v Akiyama, Kobashi v Takayama, Kobashi v Omori, Kawada/Fuchi v Nagata/Iizuka...there's some seriously good shit there.

That's of course limited to Japan. I can't be bothered putting my mind to it, but there's bound to be a good amount of strong stuff from the US and Mexico as well (the Santo/Panther matches jump out right away and might be the best matches of the entire year...shit, you could make a MOTD case for one of them (the first one, I think))

Jumbo v Misawa 9/1/90 is probably a top ten match ever for me. 6/8 isn't that far behind it and I wouldn't be surprised if I thought it was better later on.

Some of Dave's five star omissions are pretty shocking considering what he HAS given five stars to. 1/20/97 Misawa v Kobashi is BY FAR the best Misawa v Kobashi and he has three other of their matches at five stars instead. PHOO-EY.

Thought Kobashi v Akiyama was terribly overrated (good, though). Probably wouldn't make my top 25 of 2004 let alone get ***** or antyhing. Definitely prefer the 03 Misawa v Kobashi even if I don't think that's fantastic either.
