Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
As much as I appreciate Finlay and Funk, they are not close to Jumbo in my book. Sure, everybody is familiar with his early 90's G.O.A.T. run, but the real legacy comes from 70s and 80s - his tags with Baba, his NWA UNHC run (vs. Jack Brisco, Race, Robinson, Murdock, Abdullah The Butcher...), NWA IHC run (vs. Bruiser Brody, Hansen...), his ridiculously underrated AWA title run, Choshu feud, his teaming with Tenryu (legendary feud with Choshu & Yatsu), his teaming with Yatsu and, of course, his epic feud with Tenryu.
EDIT: And boy, people need to watch Flair/McDaniel series. Totally cool shit, not just 80s, but 70s too. Wahoo was the man.
