Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
Adding these to my list:
Wild Pegasus (Banoit) vs Black Tiger II (Guerrero) (BOSJ 96)
Jushin Liger vs Naoki Sano (31/01/90)
Liger/Sano especially is completely amazing.
As far as the GOAT discussion, I haven't seen enough of Finlay at all to comment apart from his WWE run and the few matches he's done this year, but there is no doubt he's an amazing worker. Same goes for Regal.
If I had to pick someone who's work I've seen a lot of and was always great, it would be Misawa. I actually prefer Kobashi, but there is no denying that between 90 and 96, maybe as late as 98 Misawa was amazing and I've never seen a bad match from him between that period.
Kobashi is probably my favorite wrestler ever though, through most of the 90's he was amazing and I haven't seen anyone that can get me as invested in a match as him. he was a great story teller between that time and his 2003 - 2005 run in NOAH was pretty great aswell.
