Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Any Lucha fan needs to watch:

Satanico/Gran Cochisse 1984
El Dandy vs Negro Casas 1992
El Dandy vs Javier Llanes 1994
Damiancito El Guerrero vs Cicloncito Ramirez 1997
Damiancito El Guerrero vs Cicloncito Ramirez Trios match 1997
El Hijo Del Santo vs Espanto Jr, 1986 and 1988. Never seen a link for the 1992 match.
1997 CMLL Cibernetico

Seabs covered the Territories exceptionally even though I do disagree with him on Finlay's placing as a worker, I really couldn't think of 20+ guys I'd say I enjoy/think are better than him let alone nearly 50. Its the same with Regal, he doesn't have a single weakness as a worker to me and does everything so well that you wish he could have been more of a major player in companies and worked longer with some of the best in the world, for me he's an easy top 20 guy.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Regal's amazing talent. If he had a more higher profile feud, he would be a GOAT candidate even to casual fans.

I think I've seen all those matches Segunda. I'm coincidentally checking out Santo vs Espanto (80s one) right now. They're amongst the finest Lucha matches indeed.


Thanks for your opinion Seabs. I just downloaded Ric Flair vs Koko B Ware.

I remember hearing people here talk about Wahoo McDaniels vs Ric Flair. Anyone got a link to that? That sounds interesting.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I'd say vs Hashimoto in NJPW is his greatest ever performance, amazing how legit he looked giving Hashimoto a surly arse kicking, the Sting match at Great American Bash 1996 is also a personal favourite of mine largely for how well they let Regal wrestle as a midcarder against STING.

The Benoit matches speak for themselves as well.

I agree with The Destroyer. I would have him over Jumbo (and Misawa as well).

Flair/Koko is indeed awesome, but its Flair in 1985. He was awesome all year.

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.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Liger/Sano have a pretty swank rematch from '96 too. Maybe not at the caliber of the 89/90 stuff but its pretty damn good too.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I'll have to check it out. That whole trilogy was awesome.

Seabs, that's an awesome list.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I'd take Jumbo over Fit, but I think I'd put Fit in the top 25. There'd probably not be too many gaps between, but Jumo's peak was better, Jumbo's match catalogue is better, and his best performances are better (this one's arguable bar a couple of Jumbo stuff in the 90s). Finlay was arguably as consistant and I could see someone going the other way.

Of all the things to compare, peak vs. consistancy or best stuff vs. consistancy are the ones that make my brain hurt the most.

give a month or so and I may be able to rip and up it. No promises, but I'll throw it a shot.
