Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Roderick Strong vs. Jay Briscoe (ROH, Only The Strong Survive)

I can't believe how fucking brilliant this match is. Storytelling, characters, structure. Pace, blood, drama, suspense. This match was damn near perfect. Everybody knew Jay has no chance in a World Title match against Roddy, but they did such a great job in making everyone believe that Jay could pull the upset. Outstanding match all around. These two have a really tremendous chemistry together, their 2008/09 series ruled too. Anyway, the only 2011 match better than this one was the Steen/Generico slugfest from Steen Wolf. This match is Top 10 in ROH history.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I have it on my disk, but I can't find it online, because of all that Fileserve and MU shit.

EDIT: And how is that Ladder Match a spotfest? You trippin'.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I have three on my list that shouldv'e been Meltzere'd a Five.

1. Edwards vs. Richards II: Best in the World 2011 was a perfect setting fr this match. In front of a record crowd, two former allies kicked each other to death for thirty five minutes before Richards went on through. Had they shortened the match by two or three minutes, this would've definatley been a five star match.

2. Cactus Jack vs. Triple H: Their Royal Rumble match might not have been a technical bout, but the athmosphere, the intensity, the DEATH of Jack from those thumbtacks probably gave this match a possible advantage for a five star.

3. Both Taker vs. HBK matches: Apparently, the only reason why WM 25's bout was given a 4 3/4 star rating was because of ther cameraman's botch. Come on man, that prevents a five star classic?

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

i thought the cameraman's botch made the WM 25 match better. I bought into a count out finish.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Always thought that cameraman spot was supposed to be a callback to the original HIAC in some way and it was just a botched bump by Taker.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I don't really understand what's botchy about it. It's a suicide dive, where you risk hurting yourself to hurt your opponent more. Just so happens Taker didn't touch Shawn. If anything's a botch in that match it's the godawful DDT.
