Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah, the nip up did kind of annoy me at first to be honest, but I then thought about it and had the same view as you on it. I don't know, I just really dug the match from start to finish, but the first half was better with HHH working over the back. That backbreaker on the chair was awesome looking.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Almost done with DVD's top 20 NJPW matches of the 90s and I can say almost for sure that these matches are 5 stars for me:
-El Samurai vs. Koji Kanemoto(6/5/97)
-Ultimo Dragon vs. Shinjiro Ohtani(8/4/96)

I probably have asked this question before but everytime I was watching a Ohtani match on this set I found myself wondering why the hell I hadn't heard of him before. He is a major league bad ass and I felt bad for any wrestler that happened to be standing across from him.

I don't usually give matches 5* but these two matches were amazing enough where I just had to give them the full monty. I have not watch nearly as much as almost anyone else on this damn awesome thread but I'll probably post my list tomorrow for shits and gigs.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

?

Ohtani has always been considered one of the best juniors ever as far as I know. His peak wasn't very long but he was "GOAT" status for a while. Even as a heavyweight he's still awesome and manages to make most of his matches at least fun.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Ohtani/Ultimo was really great, but I think I prefer 3/96 v Liger and I DEFINITELY prefer 1/96 v Samurai. Ohtani was on fire for 96.

Samurai/Kanemoto is one of the bigger matches I've never seen before.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Making my way through DVD's top 20 of the 90's list for NJPW and Liger/Samurai BOSJ Final 92 is absolutely incredible. Pissed off Liger is one of the greatest things ever in history. So simple but so fucking awesome.

The 3/17/96 Liger vs. Ohtani match also is another match that I loved. I didn't get into the 1/29/96 match as much.I still thought it was great at about **** but I didn't see anything past that.

I don't hear about a lot of NJPW Jrs. at that point in general. I knew about Sasuke, Liger, Dragon, Black Tiger, Benoit, but not much else. Whenever I look for something to watch from 90s Japan I get bombarded with AJPW matches so Ohtani didn't pop up on my radar.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

You should aaaall do Michinoku Pro. Start with the 10 man in my post there. Ditch has much of the best of the 90s before and after that. Kainetai DX is one of the greatest stables ever.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Weird I was actually going to be watching the 10 man tonight. I was going to buy the Best of M-Pro set from IVP a few months ago but I decided against it because it didn't have the 10 man. If I really like it I'll probably end up getting that set. I have this feeling that the 10 man is going to be quite the doozy.
