Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I have never given a ***** rating in my life, ****1/2+ is as high as it gets (Misawa/Kawada Triple Crown 1994), matches like Taker/Michaels 1,2, Joe/Punk and Punk/Cena are ****1/4 matches and most other stuff is below. Then again I'm trying to be realistic, a ***** match needs to have 100% perfect storytelling, and incredibly flashy, demanding movesets mixed up with a match flow and pacing that makes you dive into the experience so much that you think it's a shoot. So yeah, no ***** matches from me.

I stopped reading when ya said a match has to be incredibly flashy to be 5 stars .

Just off the top of my head .

CM Punk vs Samoa Joe ROH Joe vs Punk 2 .
Undertaker vs Shawn Micheals -WWE Wrestlemania 26
Tyler Black and Bryan Danielson vs Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards - ROH tag title classic
Bryan Danielson vs Nigel McGuinness -ROH Unified
El Generico vs Kevin Steen - ROH fight without Honor Final Battle
Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio - Mask vs Title
Ric Flair vs. Terry Funk NWA Clash Of The Champions
Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat NWA Wrestlewar

Not gonna name much more as i'll just be repeating matches allready said . Didn't see Rey Misterio Jr, Winners and Super Calo vs Psicosis, Heavy Metal and El Picudo from AAA on anyones list . Probably my favourite Lucha match ever .

Not that anyone's opinion is WRONG, but Angle/HBK, HBK/HHH, Orton/Cactus and Rock/Austin are all so good that I don't see how you could offer those up to the chopping block. The rest are clearly personal preference, and while I don't agree with them, he's not WRONG for liking a match too much. Hell I wish I wasn't so cynical anymore and could sit back and just enjoy more wrestling than I do these days.

It's been a very long time since I watched all of those, so I don't think my opinion is super valid. I didn't think any were five stars when I watched them in like 2007, except maybe Rock/Austin, which I did rewatch about a year and a half ago and liked significantly less.

But any opinion that says Angle/AJ from the 1/4/10 Impact was five stars is so incredibly wrong that it wouldn't be worth my time trying to reason with it.

I wouldn't worry about that. Dave Meltzer has over 60 now I think and some pretty much hold his opinion as a Messiah or something. if you thought all of those were five then no one should make you change any of them. Unless you really want to, then this post was useless and I'm typing for nothing.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

some real great lists here. I want to add because i dont think anyone has said it but Nigel/Aries Rising Above for me would just about have to be the best ROH match ever in my opinion. The psychology and storytelling was fantastic on top of a well wrestled match, with many flashpoints as well as the added x-factor (that i feel 5 star matches need) with Nigel's concussion and watching Aries have no mercy. Edge of my seat the whole way through.

Add Morishima/Danielson from MM 2 to that as well.
