Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Is there anyone out there who doesn't think 6/9/95 is a five star match (or of similar description/ranking)? It's my favourite match ever, by far, and I've never seen someone hate on it, like at all, in my time as a wrestling fan.

I don't see how anybody can hate on the match at all. It's the best puro tag match of all time in my opinion. Incredible storytelling, selling, pace, it's pretty perfect for me. And my god the finish is so good. Kobashi's leg selling is an absolute work of art. Kobashi laying over misawa trying to protect him from an incredibly vicious Kawada and Taue is such an incredible moment.

If anyone doesn't think it's one of the best matches ever, then they must not have seen it. Probably my favourite match of all time, a masterpiece of a wrestling match.

The 93 tag is bloody amazing as well, but not quite on that level of pure greatness. But the 6/9/95 match is made better by having seen the 93 tag and the way they play off the story of that match with the roles reversed.

Chuck Taylor, Joe Ryan and Kenny Omega vs. Davey Richards, Austin Aries and Roderick Strong vs. Nick Jackson, El Generico and Necro Butch - 9 Man Tag Team Match - PWG BOLA 2008

In terms of pure entertainment value, this is one of the greatest matches I have EVER seen. Hilariously funny, through weird circumstances or not.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Jumbo Tsuruta & Tenryu Genichiro vs. Choshu Riki & Yatsu Yoshiaki (AJPW; 1986-01-28)
***** Yep. That 700mph Tenryu lariat. <3 One of Yatsu’s finest performances. Choshu looking vulnerable for the first time in All Japan makes this a treat. He’s Choshu, he’s not an idiot, so he knows to take it easy and play strategy over power for the most part. As such, he picks his spots and makes those spots special. They beat the piss out of Jumbo and his face while Tenryu kills Choshu, entertainingly breaks up tags and is otherwise a treat to watch. His Choshu trolling is remarkable and puts this over the top for me. Tenryu really outclasses Jumbo and even Choshu overall here. What it really comes down to are the seconds': Yatsu performing at such a high consistency throughout (as a babyface, surprisingly) and Tenryu debuting his soon-to-be infamous, grumpy Tenryu self (from what I’ve seen from this set of matches at least), treating everyone to a highlight reel performance. The Choshu rib injury adds whatever amount of electricity that the title match originally forgot about and the finishing stretch is the first to that point in time causing me to foot stomp. So many little added bits of psych that keep this intense and highly entertaining from start to finish. The best part is that it’s really only a setup for the rematch the following week!

★★★★★ & 92%

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Speed Muscle vs. SHINGO & Dragon Kid (Dragon Gate USA, Open The Freedom Gate)

Okay, I used to have this match at ****1/2, but after few more re-watches, I give this a full boat. I just can't find anything wrong with this, and I know I might get few laughs for this rating. The key to the match's success were the subplots of Kid/Yoshino and SHINGO/Doi rivarlies. This match exploited the DG tag team style to perfection, and the second half was balls-to-the–walls frenzy, dramatic and exciting. Some awe inspiring sequences and super believable nearfalls. The selling was highly acceptable too. The best match in DGUSA history, and the best modern tag team match, together with GoBashi/K-Office, XXX/AMW, DemBoys/Steenerico and AngleBenoit/EdgeRey ( I feel like I'm missing one).
