Lol, no... I was just answering to WCW, I said Bob Backlund is rationale for those. Yes, even for those where he's not involved. Because he's that awesome.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

They are all awesome matches.

The story telling in the Punk/Joe match is some of the best I've ever seen. Punk with the rope-a-dope was brilliant stuff. It really had the big match feel that a lot of indies can't pull off.

Backlund.

Cena/Umaga is the best Last Man Standing match the E has ever put on. Cena working against monsters is always great. This might be the match of the 00s for all promotions, and very, very likely the match of the 00s for the E.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

What are your ratings for Flair/Jumbo 6 matches? I remember having one of them (2/3 falls) at five stars, but for the love of God I can't remember the date. And I remember having the rest of the series from *** to ****1/2.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I've actually watched most of the Flair/Jumbo matches pretty recently. 10/9/81, 6/8/82 and 6/8/83 are on the All Japan set so I've watched all of those within the last 8 months or so.

Not a huge fan of any of them anymore. I used to think 6/8/83 was tremendous, but I didn't love it this time around. I'll just post what I said about it last year:

Quote:
Ric Flair v Jumbo Tsuruta (6/8/83)
- This is really, really good stuff, but it didnít strike me as the absolute slam dunk that I remembered and figured itíd hold up as. I expected it to be a top 15 lock going in, and while I canít see it falling out of the top 40, Iíd be surprised if it stays in my top 20 (so Iím still fairly sure Iíll be a low voter on it). Hour long matches generally arenít my cup of tea anymore Ė at this stage Iíd rather see Funk and Hansen try to hang, draw and quarter each other for 15 minutes Ė and I donít particularly love a great deal of Flairís stuff in Japan, anyway. First fall is a strong slow-burner, and thereís some good stuff in it. Thought Jumbo was far more interesting on the mat here than he was in their first two matches, and everything felt like more of a struggle as a result. Flair is a guy I always like working basic holds, but I tend to get more out of it when heís working stateside. Jumboís all over him for most of the first half hour and Flair is never able to sustain any sort of advantage. Jumboís flurry at the end of the fall is really good and capped off by a great looking backdrop. Second fall has Flair come out as if he knows he has to change his approach and lets loose with the strikes, including his awesome punches to the armpit. Final 20 minute spell is what I always remembered as being the stretch that pushed this into the top level, and it still held up as being terrific. Flair getting cut open is really when things kick up a few gears and they donít slow down from that point on. Great spot where Flair is hanging upside down in the corner while Jumbo lays into his blood-blond head. Felt like a scene from a Jason movie with Flair as your Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan or some other walking STD being strung up in an abattoir. Last ten minutes are basically built around Flair continually going back to the figure-four while Jumbo refuses to quit, and itís pretty remarkable how much drama they get out of it considering the hold is applied for minutes at a time. Flair knows the score and just trash talks and shouts at Higuchi to count Jumbo out, and as much of a gutsy motherfucker Jumbo comes across as for not quitting, Flair equally comes across as a guy that, despite how often it might seem like heís escaping by the skin of his teeth, will fight tooth and nail to keep his title whenever itís in jeopardy. This is in my top 6 right now, but I think the fact it wonít stay up in the very top tier is a sign of how my tastes have shifted pretty considerably since the last time I watched it (about 4 years ago now) rather than there being anything ďwrongĒ with it.
That match is still my favourite of all the Flair/Jumbo matches.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I would not consider the 2/3 falls match between Ric and Jumbo to be an amazing match either.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I remember watching a few Falir/Jumbo matches and I wasn't too high on them at the time, I don't remember which ones though.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I didn't think a whole lot of the Jumbo/Flair matches on the All Japan set either.
