The only reasonable knock I can see on 6/9/95 — or 6/3/94, or 12/6/96, or any of the best All Japan matches from the '90s — is that it's not necessarily the most appropriate match to watch at any time, or in any given situation. If you're looking to just sit back and unwind after a shitty day at work, or if you have a few minutes to kill and figure you'll do it by watching wrestling, then a 40-minute epic with six years of layered storytelling built into it probably isn't what you're looking for.

But when I want to actually sit down and invest some honest-to-god time and brain power into really watching wrestling, those are the matches I go for. Andy3000 is right to describe them as "heavy." I once heard somebody else describe 6/9/95 as "everything I love or have ever loved about professional wrestling," and that's certainly what it is for me. But I don't have the energy for that all the time, and I can't imagine anybody else does either. Sometimes "everything I love or have ever loved about professional wrestling" requires more mental and emotional energy than I have to give at that moment, and I'm more than happy to settle for "a bunch of things I like about professional wrestling."

All Japan matches from the '90s are heavy, in the sense that a gourmet three-course meal is heavy, and as such, it's not going to be what you're always in the mood for. It's probably not even going to be what you're usually in the mood for. But I can't imagine the times when you do have it not being the most fully satisfying experiences you have as a fan of professional wrestling (they absolutely are for me), and to me, that's what makes them the best.

I don't think "rather watch" should be used if you're talking about flat out "best" of anything. Andre/Hansen is one of my five favourite matches ever and I'd probably rather watch it than any AJ 90s match, but that's not at all saying it was as good as over a dozen matches from AJ. I'd rather watch Rey Mysterio v Jamie Noble to any John Cena match ever. I'd rather watch TAKA Michinoku to Genichiro Tenryu. I'd rather watch Dustin Rhodes to Jerry Lawler. ETCETERA.

Also the heavy storytelling stuff for All Japan......IDK. I think any fan can watch any AJ match at any point point and enjoy it. You may need to watch/know about all the back-shit to fully appreciate what they're doing, but the first time I 6/9/95 was in 2008 with no knowledge to anything and I still thought it was a classic match. I watched Jumbo/Taue v Gordy/Williams recently and enjoyed it. If someone tells me I missed part of the "story" about it or whatever, I'm not going back and re-watching it just to catch that stuff. I watched, I enjoyed, SO THERE.

i would be interested in seeing ths "*****3/4" list. even if it's ****3/4 i'd still be interested. went through this whole thread looking for new stuff to watch so let's see some more matches!

re: HDA vs Misawa/Kawada 6/9/95. that and undertaker vs hbk from WM XXV have to be my two most watched matches of the last year. i can't get enough of those and never find them hard to watch.

Yeah that's a really great list. Especially agree with like, all the Japan stuff (Not seen that Funk/Hansen singles match though tbh) and the ROH 6YA match (my favourite ROH match ever).

Hey, I'm working on a top 100 wrestling list, and I'm rewatching some of the matches that I have written down.

I was wondering, does anyone have any links to a site with ROH matches? If you want to keep it private, just send me a PM, it'd be very useful. I might have some on my old computer, but it is a pain to hook it up.

XWT has a torrent of top 100 ROH matches on free leech. Should be worth checking out.
