On the subject of Danielson, it would be so fucking epic if he defeated Henry with the elbows, but it seems as if Punk is using a version of those recently so I doubt they would let two guys use them. The stomps would be just as good though, or the triangle with the elbows. I'm also hoping they have him use 'I have 'till 5' again lol.
good list but i would also add Eddie Guererro vs. JBL Judgement Day 2004 was a classic
Yeah. I'm surprised that match hasn't been mentioned more. I haven't seen it in a while to have an opinion if it was a 5 star match or not, but I do remember it being epic. I dunno, it could of just been the sick bladejob that kept me interested.
I don't have Guerrero/JBL JD 04 on my ***** list, but the match is legit fucking incredible and needs to be watched by more people. When I saw it live I hated it, just because of JBL I guess lol. Watched it again for the top 100 WWF/E poll I was part of... and I think it ended up in my top 20 lol.
WWE - CM Punk/Cena - Raw guttural emotion with damn good work to back it up
BJW - Ryuji Ito vs Jun Kasai (Razor board death match) - A match 11 years in the making delivers with bloody, brilliant fun
BJW - Yuko Miyamoto (c) Masashi Takeda (Construction site death match) - Two guys with nothing to lose (Miyamoto was coming under fire for not defending his title enough) and everything to gain. The two guys tore each other apart to make this an amazing match.
Takayama/Kobashi vs Misawa/Akiyama - Yes, Kobashi's return match gets the full ***** from me. Big whoop, wanna fight about it?
Did I say that was 5 stars in the WWE DVD thread? My memory is shocking sadly but I've got it between ****3/4 and the full 5, actually forgot to include it in the matches at the end that are close to the full 5.
Agreed on Eddie vs JBL being incredible, its a top 15 personal favourite match of all time from me. Proof JBL was a great heel worker and played to his strengths in ring and Eddie turns in an all time great babyface performance.
Location: highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
Is that Eddie/JBL match on one of his sets? Or was that just a random Smackdown match?
Oh SC I watched that Flair/Wahoo match, it was pretty great just for the chop exchanges alone. It was nice to see two guys put over each others offense so well without having to resort to doing crazy bullshit.
Location: Golfing with Stephen Hawking, he lied about his handicap. Didn't need a golf cart though, I just sat in his lap.
Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
Judgement Day 2004 McQueen, probably on a set but I'd wager Seabs has it in his megapost.
Good to see you loved McDaniel vs Flair. 'Celebrity' Ric Flair who's too good for some back alley promotion is always a side of Flair I love and his character work was great throughout. I also love him always losing out early in the punch/chop exchanges against a power wrestler, the crowd losing their shit everytime he gets dumped on his ass never fails to amuse me.
