Styles/Low Ki, ROH 2002. Can't remember the name of the show.

Just two matches I've never seen getting much praise as 5 stars . What exactly do you think takes away from Dragon/Shima being a five star match? I've heard many say it's because Danielson didn't have any believable near falls. Which I disagree with.

I'm glad someone shares the same opinion about the Steenerico/Briscoes match. Man I miss Steenerico so much. Anyway, it's up there with Wolves/ Black and Danielson as ROH's best thing. Thinking about it , I liked it more.

Just finished watching HIAC. Better than what I recalled . Saying that it was 5 or 6 years since I've seen it. It's very hard to argue that Shawn wasn't the best WWF/E wrestler ever. And simply just one of the best ever.

I prefer Danielson/Low Ki JAPW and Hero/Rotten IWA as far as indy matches go with swank looking matwork. Danielson/Ki looked straight out of RINGS and the fact it was zoomed in made all the counters and transitions look extra slick and gritty.

Danielson/Morishima; I can't think off the top of my head but it just didn't grab me as a ***** match. I mean I love Benoit/Finlay Judgement Day 2006 to the point where I'd say its a lock for top 20 in WWF/E history...but its not a ***** match. Also doesn't help I haven't watched Danielson/Morishima since mid 2010.

I've heard great things about the Hero/Rotten match but never even thought about watching it but might give it a look soon. It just feels weird to have Rotten ( And even a young Chris Hero for that matter)in a great match. It's been pimped a lot though.

Blood Generation vs DO Fixer is usually a regular on everyones five star list. I'm not a big fan of the dragon gate style or multimen matches at all but I can see why it gets praised so much. Awesome , innovative , crisp and flawless action from start to finish that made everyman look like a million bucks. Top that off with a red hot crowd and it's a damn great match. Six man matches usually aren't this great and very hard to pull off but this is one of the best ones I remember. Maybe not the full five , just the because the style isn't my cup of tea but a really fun , great match. ****1/2

Good luck finding a link, I saw it a couple of times off of a megaupload link thanks to Yeah1993 but I'm sure it died before megaupload did and I haven't been able to track another down. But yeah, feels all gritty and unco-operative and there's some meaty strikes dished out as well to add to the tension in each exchange. Rotten isn't exactly gonna be pulling counters at a speed that impresses you but he does a lot better than his reputation on the internet would suggest.

Meh, the DG 6 man was perfect for introducing the style to ROH and winning the crowd over....but its just not my cup of tea as a wrestling match. Insane athleticism, ridiculously hot crowd and a perfect way to sell DG to a new audience but I don't think of it as a great match for purely personal taste reasons. Can easily see why its adored however and it was exactly the sort of match they had to work in that context.

Idk, it's not because of the lack of (Dragon's) believable nearfalls, and I'm certainly not taking anything away from the match. The match is absolutely awesome, but not for the ***** territory, especially when you compare it to the other ROH ***** matches, like Nigel/Dragon (Unified), Joe/Punk II or KENTA/Dragon.

I've heard great things about Hero/Rotten and the JAPW match, but I've never seen them. So I guess what I am saying is that I want to see them. *Heads to request thread.*

Danielson/Shima is fucking awesome as tits, but for some reason I didn't see it as a 5 star match. I can't remember much from it though, I've only seen it once and that was a while ago.

IMO, Danielson/McGuinness from 6YA is the best ROH match ever. The stroytelling and character work, especially from Nigel, is completely untouchable as far as ROH matches go. Danielson/KENTA from Driven is my second favorite Dragon match (I like it more than the GBH V match).

@ malek, imo the best Shelley/MCMG match is either MCMG vs Briscoes from Good Times Great Memories or MCMG vs Danielson/Aries from Fuelling The Fire (I think thats the show it was from). I would rate both at about ****3/4.

Stan Hansen vs Toshiaki Kawada 2/28/93. This is a good match. Anybody who remotely enjoys 90s AJPW needs to watch.
