Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
I gotta say, even though I went the full boat for Flair vs. Steamboat @ Chi-Town Rumble, I felt the same way. I don't want to say the match was lacking or that I was disappointed, but it did feel as if something were missing.
Re: UT vs. Mankind -- This is why I stress that my ratings are completely subjective. I feel a match should be rated based on the viewer's enjoyment. If you strip away all the hoopla from this match and just watch it as a grappling exhibition, it's not going to carry the same luster. If you allow yourself to watch the match as a wrestling fan, then it becomes easy to see why the match surfaces on so many 'favorite' lists. Personally I don't rate the match 5 stars and I don't include it in my favorites, but it was a very entertaining spectacle and helped influence my interest level in wrestling.
