Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah, love that match, also the post-match is epic with Undertaker becoming Hardy into a future star.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I feel a little weird saying this but does no one have any love for Ladder War I. It is one of my favorite ladder matches along with being one of my favorite ROH matches. It misses out on the full monty for me but it comes pretty darn close. Maybe I am alone on this one

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah Ladder War I isn't quite 5 stars for me but it's really close. TLC I is 5 stars for me though. Yeah it's a spotfest but one with loads of historical value and it holds really fucking well. Watched it about a year ago and it was still an insane bunch of fun considering how dated it could easily have got. Next best Ladder match is probs Benoit/Jericho. All the others are a noteable step behind them bar the Big Show MITB match. Can't remember what my thoughts on the HBK/Razor ladder matches were but I like them a lot even if they don't hold up that well due to Ladder Matches like TLC I and Ladder War I. That Morrison/Sheamus Ladder match is probably the best modern one though and obvs the Big Show MITB match. Hasn't really been any other really great Ladder matches other than them in like the last 6 or 7 years. The Armaggedon 06 Ladder Match deserves mentioning too. I remember really liking that one.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Ladder War I as well as the entire Steen/Generico vs Briscoes feud was great.

Dynamite Kid vs Tiger Mask

I haven't seen it mentioned on here yet. I like all their matches.

I came here to chew gum and kick ass. I'm all out of chewing gum!

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

The Boston Street Fight was probably the best of the series and that's damn close to being 5* as well.

It does hold up over time if you appreciate storytelling and psychology. You should hear Bryan & Vinny's review of the match recently.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

HBK/Ramon I is the GOAT ladder match.

Teh Briscoes/Steenerico Boston Street Fight is a five star slugfest. Totally better than Ladder War I.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

HBK/Razor WM10 is the most overrated ladder match in the history of overrated ladder matches. The hokey build-up with two belts isn't very memorable and certainly doesn't yield the kind of heat Shawn had with Marty or Perfect in '93. Both guys put in solid performances and give the crowd what they want, but also leave a lot left to be desired. I hate to say it, but Hall really holds this match back just with his selling and limited moveset. Its a ****1/4 match, severely overrated in the way that many classic rock albums are considered better than some of the music they influence.

And I'm not really even a fan of the gimmick, which is probably why the first Ladder War is my favorite and the only match of this kind I would give the full monty. Sure, the ladder is there in hopes that someone will climb and retrieve the belts, but by this point the feud was obviously about more than titles. The championship is basically a reward for staying alive in this blood feud. As noted elsewhere in this thread, the feud itself was so volital and hate feuled that there are at least 2 other matches involving the Briscoes and Steenerico that are nearly just as good.

Various other matches involving ladders:
LW2 Steen/Generico vs. American Wolves ***1/2
LW3 Briscoes vs. All Night Express ****1/4
WCW Souled Out Syxx vs Guerrero ***3/4
SS95 HBK/Ramon II ****
Punk/Hardy ****1/4
E&C vs Hardys ****
TLC ****1/4
TLC 2 ****1/4
TLC 3 ****
Benoit/Jericho ****1/2
RVD/Guerrero ****
Rock/HHH ***3/4
Hart/Michaels ***1/4
Sandman/Sabu *3/4

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

And what about Jericho/Michaels, Sheamus/Morrison or Taker/Hardy?
