Definitely. Wouldn't go 5 for it, but it's ****1/2 rather easily imo. The fact that they didn't use even 2 big kickouts iirc was so refreshing and unique, especially in this day and age.

As I said in the puro thread that match would've benefited from the finish of the 11/11/07 Tana/Goto match with the HFF into a Texas Cloverleaf and a tapout. I really think that could've sent it through the roof.

3 count was the only pinfall attempt of the match, seriously. Agree that a cloverleaf finish would have been better but it was still damn unique.

Forgot to post this the other day when I watched it, but Kawada vs Hashimoto 04 is the latest match I've watched that'd get the full 5 from me. Fucking glorious match in every possible way. Perfect.

Midnight Express vs Southern Boys ~ NWA-WCW Great American Bash 1990

I'd like to see this match kept in the discussion for about a week or longer.

Gave my first ***** match after rating matches for about a year. Gave it to Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 26. I loved the whole build up to it, and it showed how important the match up was to both men, and that justified the finisher heavy match. I loved how Undertaker had to utilize the jumping tombstone piledriver to finally but Shawn down in the end after the whole match. The work on Taker's knee and selling of it was great throughout the match and it made many spots logical, although the work didn't directly impact the finish I was very pleased with this. I felt like everything had a meaning and the match was just a spectacle. I've probably watched this 5 times now. I saw it live and didn't like it much, just thought of it as a finisher heavy match. On my first rewatch I didn't like it but on the second I thought it was good. After that I watched it again and thought it was a near classic, and now I feel it deserves a special place as my only ***** match.

I always liked the there WM 26 match more than than the 25. I wouldn't give either 5 but I thought the 26 match was a fair degree better.

Taker/Shawn 25 and 26 are both pretty spectacular imo. On numerous re-watches though I'm pretty sure I prefer 25. Just something about it, despite 26 arguably having the better storytelling and selling elements. But ask me when I've re-watched them again and it could be 26.

I prefered the WM26 match over the WM25 match. Needless to say both were amazing matches with a great build up.

As for my personal 5* matches, I don't keep a list or anything but I have 2 matches that immidiately come to mind. I have said in the past I'm a huge fan of spotfests and lack of psychology and storytelling doesn't bother me much if at all. Therefor Richards/Edwards II from BITW 2011 and Richards/Elgin from Showdown In The Sun would both get a 5 star rating from me.
I had so much fun watching those matches.. just the entertainment I got out of those 2 matches was second to none for me. I'm very sure alot of people will disagree with my rating for those 2 matches but it all just comes down to the fact that I get entertainment out of different aspects of a match (the moves, stiffness etc.. as opposed to how someone sells or what story is told in the ring)

Agree with you about Richards/Elgin, it was so awesome to watch this live, I came to the match with no big expectations since this feud had ZERO build and even if I was Elgin fan then I didn't thought a match between him and Davey can be that good & I was super-pissed after the stream problems but I was wrong and this match was worth the price alone. After the Top-Rope Dragon Suplex everything becaome so inasne.. I was exhausted at the end lol.
