Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I'm just curious how people keep track of their star ratings. What I started doing late last year was recording all ***+ matches I watch in a notepad document and I'm around 400 matches rated.

I thought the same, until I found there was still AJ matches I would absolutely flip my shit over on first watch. I wasn't TOTALLY expecting something like Taue v Williams to give me a similar feeling to Hansen v Kawada (even if it wasn't AS good).

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah definitely. I just saw that Vader/Misawa match last week, and I didn't expect it to be as good as it was since I hadn't heard much talk about it at all, and I was marking out like a child. When Misawa finally gets Vader rocking with those elbows I was completely losing it. It's just awesome to know that there's pretty much a whole decades worth of awesomeness to watch still.

@ mk92071, I do the same as you, I just have a notepad doc filled with my favorite matches. I have a separate one for the matches I think are 5* though, as in the ones I think are the best ever.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I have a document I keep that I grade in entertainment value instead of match quality since that's what actually matters to me. I have ~70 matches at 5*.

A match I never see get pimped as 5* is Jimmy Jacobs vs BJ Whitmer in a cage at SCoH II. That had loads of story in it and did it's job as a blowoff match as Jacobs loses a tooth and sustains an injury that keeps him out 9 months afterwards. It's sick. I may have to upload that.

I have yet to see the third match between Strong and Danielson but I have it upped already and I've seen it on people's list itt.

Danielson vs Strong @ SCoH

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

My pleasure. I'd like to up more but that requires splitting files now since YT took me to 15 minute d/l's and i'm pretty lazy. I think tomorrow I'll get to Jacobs vs Whitmer and KENTA vs Nigel from 7th Ann Show.

nobody reads my posts
















Just kidding. The Tokyo Dome going apeshit when Misawa starts doing his comeback is one of my favorite things ever. Vader is an unstoppable monster and the fans now it, but they also know that there's nothing their Ace (Misawa) can't elbow his way back from. As the tides begin to tun you can sense everyone going "oh shit, he's gonna do it again!".

The match being on Giant Baba's memorial show adds even more to it.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists



The crowd was amazing for that, and it's the Tokyo Dome too, so it was really loud. I watched their match from like, a few months after I think, still a great bomb fest but not quite as great, didn't have the epic atmosphere. I need to see their early NOAH match too.

But if its awesome from your perspective, why would you care what Scott Keith has to say? A star rating is no different from any other rating, it is your opinion on whether the match is good or bad.
