Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Havenīt seen anyone posting this one:

Bryan Danielson vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Low-Ki on one of the first ROH shows! Thought it was better than Joe vs. Daniels vs. Styles and it was earlier, in 2002 or 2003, canīt remember.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I will do my list later, but I just rewatched Samoa Joe vs. Daniels from GBH II, and it's still at five stars for me. I remember people calling me crazy for that. That match is brilliant.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Kobashi/Kikuchi vs Kroffat/Furnas 25/5/92.

Amazing tag match. The crowd was unbelievable for this, they were going bat shit crazy for anything Kobashi or Kikuchi did, I mean literally jumping out of their seats. Very impressed with kroffat/Furnas, never seen them before. The nearfalls were epic.

Here's a few that haven't been mentioned:

Jun Kasai vs Ryuji Ito - 11/20/2009 - Razor Cross Death Match

Mankind vs The Undertaker - HIAC (Yes, it gets the full five from me)


Jun Kasai > You

Am I the only one who thinks the Mankind/Taker HiaC isn't anything special? Once you've seen the two big spots from the match and strip it down all you have is about 5 minutes of two guys punching each other.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I have Mankind/Taker HIAC at ****3/4. It's more than just two big spots. There was just something in the air (something else except Mankind, lol), the IT factor was incredible.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I finally saw it for the first time a few years ago and felt massively letdown after all the hype over the years. To each their own I guess.

That's a ridiculous rating for that match. It's fucking awesome.

And yeah, I agree about Taker/Mankind, especially when you compare it the Taker/Michaels HIAC. It's entertaining but it isn't that great.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

He complains it has no backstory. Its a match over a title and both teams actually make it seem like the title is important because they go all out against each other. Whatever.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I used to think Mankind vs Undertaker wasn't anything special, but from top to bottom it does give you quite a unique atmosphere. Listening to the commentary, and putting yourself back in 97 you have to respect that everyone was thinking Undertaker really killed Mankind. You really don't think that too often in wrestling, especially in WWE. It's not on my top 100 matches or anything, but I respect people who think it is a good match.

25/5/92 with Kobashi and that little Japanese dude is a great tag match. I watched it nearly a week ago, and the crowd is so hyped for it it's hard not to enjoy it.
