Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Gotta agree with Stinger, this thread is awesome. It kinda introduced me and others to AJPW and it's epicness, which is why it is pretty heavy on the AJPW talk I think. It doesn't help that the matches are genuinely the best I have ever seen aswell lol. Kinda hard not to talk about these matches after watching them.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Not that I'm aware of sadly, I can provide a link to a few of those matches (credit to Yeah1993), a couple are on youtube (Satanico vs Gran Cochisse & MS-1 vs Sangre Chicana) and the rest get uploaded on various megavideo links. I know Yeah1993 has the Atlantis vs Villano III match as I saw it months back off of a link of his.

I'm told DVDVR may soon be doing a Lucha 80's set or releasing comps of some of their more famed workers. El Hijo has a 36 disc comp already.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Just watched a 5 star match. Undertaker vs The Rock vs Kurt Angle at Vengeance 2002. The second best triple threat match I have ever seen besides HBK/HHH/Benoit. Is there any World of Sport matches you guys would recommend, and do you guys rate WoS matches like every other professional wrestling matches?

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Johnny Saint vs Steve Grey 1980 is an excellent match. The story of Grey being outwitted by his opponent and his struggle to try and claim the advantage is class, and the wrestling in between is the usual slick and creative grappling you expect from World of Sport.

Finlay vs Davey Boy 1982 is on DailyMotion and again is a hell of a match, Davey is only like 18 or so at this stage.

You also need to see more Jim Breaks, matter or fact everyone does. I swear a lot of Regal's attitude in being disrespectful and snobbish was inspired by Breaks.

Thanks, I will defiantly checkout the Finlay/Davey as I'm a huge fan of both. Do you rate WoS matches? This will actually be the first WoS match I have eer seen :P

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Its very good for nice grappling and creative chain wrestling. It does lack the brawling/emotion and long term selling/control segments I enjoy in other matches but the style itself is very watchable and fun. They work nice stories into a heel being outwrestled by a face or a young babyface being treated with contempt by an older heel.

Saint and Breaks are two of the best from what I've seen, Regal is in a few WOS matches and I think a few of them are on Youtube.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Jimmy Breaks is a guy i'd love to see more of. Such a little fucking bitch (in a good way) and his Breaks Wristlock is fucking sick. I wish more people adapted the WoS style but not sure i'd go over really well in a major company due to many fans lacking patience and appreciation for such styles.

Young David vs Finlay LOL.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

He's an amazing dickhead, his handshake turned into a slap spot is always great. You can tell the crowd loved interacting with him during matches. I think Finlay in particular has done well to try and incorporate elements of the British style whilst still maintaining some American style to keep the crowd interested. Regal occasionally busting out WOS escapes is always a delight.

IIRC 'Young David' was hilarious in that match appearance wise. Looked like he'd just been picked out of the showers to wrestle, immediately thought of Billy Elliot when I saw him.

I gave it ***3/4 iirc. And I had a lot of complaints. It's been years tho, I hardly remember now. Reminded me of the No Mercy 2002 tag, which I think is around the same level.
