Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Would it come as any surprise to anyone that I DON'T like a single one of the Awesome/Tanaka matches?

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

damn it, meant Unified, not Rising Above for McGuinness/Danielson. Couldn't remember which one it was.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I just rewatched both Angle/Austin matches from 2001, and I have to say I think both are awesome but neither on the 5 star level for me, but the SS match is closer, probably about ****1/2 - ****3/4, it just needed something more to give it the full marks.

I also need to say that it reminded me of how fucking phenomenal Steve Austin was, just an amazing pro wrestler. I also love that even though he was a heel around this time (before he started that sucking up to Vince thing) he still carried himself like an absolute bad ass, walking to the ring and in the ring and was never a chicken shit type of heel, just one that was an absolute bastard.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah. Austin is amazing. Easily the best 'face of the WWE' of all time. He doesn't get enough love from wrestling nerds and purists.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah I agree. The guy was fucking good in the ring, and could tell an amazing story aswell as play his character within a match to perfection. I haven't seen too many people I would consider to be a better pro wrestler than Austin if i'm being honest.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

After some consideration I think I've come to the conclusion that Austin's 2001 is the greatest in ring year any WWE wrestler has ever had.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I think a lot might prefer a Bret Hart or Shawn Michaels year to it, but yeah more people seem to think that than I originally thought.
