I never got that, either.

That match put me to sleep. Absolute snore fest.

Who cares?

I remember the golden years.

Yeah, I've been going to that site for awhile now and I was just on there last night looking at reviews and stuff. I can't believe that he rates Tanahashi/Mutoh a 9.0, that match was pretty bad and boring, as alot of Mutoh's matches are nowadays. That match has got to be the one of the most overrated matches of the decade if you ask me, if not THE most overrated match of the decade.

I didn't think it was bad or boring but I certainly didn't think it was 9.0 level match.

I didn't think it was bad either, but it was slow. The match was Mutoh targeting Tana's knees to take away his speed advantage, and then it was Tanahashi targeting Mutoh's knees because they are in such bad condition its an obvious target.

So with both men selling the leg work, and moving slower accordingly until the finishing stretch, you have a slow ass match, but with a nice little 'passing of the torch' ending.

And if this years main event in Nakamura and Takayama doesn't include multiple cringe-inducing strikes, I'll be disappointed.

Best thing Nak does is eat Takayama's knees. I'm not even screwing around when I say that.

Holy shit. Just watched Backlund/Hansen from the 80s and it was phenomenal. As usual for Hansen puro matches it ends in a DQ after he goes crazy on his opponent. 5 more mins and an actual finish woulda made this a classic.

That said; someone reccomend me Backlund matches NOW.

Andy gave me a bunch a while back, I could post 'em here I guess (includes two INSANELY good Slaughter matches from 1981). Also heard from Cal that he had a fantastic match with Greg Valentine in '78 or '79, ans since cal recommended me the Slaughter matches, I'm taking his word for it.

Bob Backlund v Sgt. Slaughter, 1/10
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=2ZHF2L2A

Bob Backlund v Sgt. Slaughter, 3/21
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Y7HPD155

And the Backlund/Valentine match is from 1979, should be in the media section on here. All 3 matches are ****3/4 IMO.

Yeah, any luck ripping that other Slaughter/Backlund match?
