Certainly best tag ever for me, and I'd only think of the Final Conflict Tag 1983 in the Cage to be the closest challenger to that. Of course if we're taken all of forms of tag matches, then 20/04/1991 and 19/10/1990 are very close.

As for best match ever, only Kawada vs Misawa 3/6/1994 touches it from Japan IMO, maybe Flair vs Steamboat COTC as another contender. Everything just clicked in that match and you had arguably 4 of the best ever in their primes (in Taue's case a resurgance) and it showed.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

6/3/94 is really close and I hold the Austin/Hart Wrestlemania match in really high regard too. Can't go wrong with the Flair/Steamboat '89 stuff either but I like the Flair/Funk matches a little more since Funk is my GOAT. Guy could draw me into his matches like no one else.

Taue when he was able to bring his A-game is also one of the funnest guys to watch.

I loved the Funk vs Flair GAB match when I watched it for a WCW ballot, haven't seen the I Quit in forever but I can't imagine it not rivalling GAB. Recently saw Funk vs Steamboat in 89 and Funk was immense as the insane psycho with no regard for his or Steamboat's well being, one of the best DQ endings as well.

Taue has the unique ability to me of never standing out as much during one of the more infamous tags (bar when he and Kawada try to make the other impotent) but then when I think back about what was mostly good about it, more often than not he ends up being maybe the best guy in the match or very very close to being the best.

Still not seen Kawada vs Taue 1993 and hoping to change that soon.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Think so, its the match where they earn each others respect and then set about crippling Misawa and Kobashi. I have the link to it but for some reason have never gotten around to watching it.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I'm pretty sure i've watched that but it was years ago. I'm positive Ditch has it. I know i've watched a match where they duked it out in 91' during the Jumbo/Misawa and crew fued and Kawada knocked out Taues ass with a VICIOUS forearm to the back of the head which is all kinds of badassery, then they became friends and owned as a tag team.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah that's the 1991 match and featured Taue blading like a madman, the finish was just insane. Probably the stiffest clothesline I've seen, although Vader vs Kawada 2000 rivals it.

The 1993 singles match is apparently where they find new found respect and then form the team. They've got quite a few matches on 'the site' and they're usually always stiff and awesome.

6/9/95 (month/day/year for you lovely folk) is probably my favorite match ever, I definitely prefer it over Kwada/Misawa 94.

I like this thread, I thought we needed a thread just to discuss our favorite matches for a while.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I said before, but if you watch the 1993 Tag (link is on the other page) you'll love the 1995 tag even more given how they play off of the leg work in the 1993 tag as well as Kawada's inability to put away Misawa which had been burning at him since 1992.

Plus the 1993 tag is fucking awesome.
