Yup. I only watched it on megavideo too, so I kick myself every day for not actually downloading it. Haven't been able to watch it for two YEARS.

I remember Dragon/Ki from the second ROH being great, but I preferred the JAPW submission match and the other one from PWG's All Star Weekend Day 4, Night 7, Match...9..... with cheese...it was in 2008, IDK.

I've already tried to request Hero/Rotten (in more places than one). given up hope by now. It'd seem like I deleted the JAPW match from my computer. I hope to Christ I put it on disc.

Not going to lie, I thought this was way, way, way better than Hansen v Kobashi when I watched them within a couple of hours of each other last year. Total classic, btw.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I also thought it was better than Hansen/Kobashi but didn't want to add my own hyperbole. Recently watched Hansen/Kobashi and found it kinda boring in some spots but it definitely had it's drama. Hansen/Kawada is just such an in your face match in comparison and tons of drama.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I re-watched both the WM 25 and 26 Taker/Shawn matches and I think both are as close as you can get without actually giving the full 5. I don't know, while they are both amazing, it's similar to the Bryan/Shima match mentioned earlier, it's fucking awesome but for some reason I can't go the full 5 and I can't quite put my finger on it.

Btw, talking of Michaels and his WM matches, what do you guys think of Michaels vs Flair, vs Angle and vs Cena? Because I've been watching a bunch of Michaels stuff again recently and they are next on my re-watch list and I can't really remember anything from them apart from the 'I'm sorry, I love you' ending to the Flair match.

I'd go the full ***** for MCMGs/Briscoes at RoH's Good Times, Great Memories, and probably pretty close for their 2/3 falls match against Beer Money Inc. at TNA's "Whole F'n Show" special Impact, and for their match with Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black at Tag Wars 2008 (RoH again). Their match with the Kings of Wrestling at Supercard of Honor V is a 5-star body with a terrible ending; well worth watching, but averages out less than ***** by my reckoning.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

It was in 07 not 06, and it's my pick for best ever ROH match.

Flair match is a good story and fitting end to Flair's career, but its not a very good match in terms of pure ring work due to Flair's broken down body. Still they did well to make the story and emotion the centre of the match and thus keep the crowd invested past the subpar ringwork. Plus HBK's missed moonsault is just hideous, up there with Austin/Benoit and Benoit/Booker for best announce table bump.

Angle match is about ***1/4-***1/2. Atmosphere is great and it feels like an 'EPIC' spectacle, but bar the opening with HBK surprising Angle with matwork and trading holds its too counter-counter for my liking. I can absolutely see why people think of it as a top Mania match of all time, but its just not really what I like these days and I vastly prefer Taker/Orton and the MITB for MOTN candidates.

Cena match I truly love, feels like a top 5 WM Main Event match alongside Taker/HBK II, Rock/Austin 17 and Benoit/HHH/HBK.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I watched the Flair match and really loved it. I thought Flair did incredibly well in it and it was awesome to see him pull out all the stops, he even hit the top rope move we've been wanting to see for years and it actually looked good lol. Michaels Moonsault through the table was ridiculous, there is no way he wasn't fucked after that. He basically missed another one all the way from the top to the floor which looked ridiculous as well. Poor guy. The emotion was awesome, and the end was incredible but yeah, not the best in ring work for a Michaels WM match, but I still loved it for other reasons. Definitely not 5 like I remember people rating it at the time.
