Oh yeah, I wasn't saying reading about that stuff from other posters makes my head hurt (figure of speech btw), I'm saying attmeptiing to compare it myself makes my head hurt. I always end up going

"well, wrestler A's best is a lot better than wrestler B"
"but wrestler A has had a shitty run for a half a decade before becoming good"
"but then again, his performance at ____ blows away wrestler B's best"
"but he ruined a ton of matches elsewhere and wrestler B didn't"

omg

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists


NOAH 3/1/2003
Kenta Kobashi vs Mitsuharu Misawa
This classic deserves a rewatch. This is the Japanese equivalent to Rock vs Austin, HBK vs Undertaker, Batman vs Spiderman.... you get the picture. I love this match. Everything about it. They churn out near enough all their movesets to put on a match which I would consider the best singles match I have ever seen. Ranking in at #2 on my GOAT match list, only behind Kawada/Taue versus Misawa/Kobashi from 6/9/1995.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

great match but their 97 match is easily the best IMO. I also prefer Kobashi/Akiyama from 04 but I know a lot of people think it's overrated.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Like that Kobashi/Misawa a lot, but it's probably their fifth or sixth best singles together.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

What bout some AWA? Any classics aside from Henning vs Bock? Doesn't have to be 5 star.

Interested to see what gems people discover when Death-Valley works on that AWA list.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Just saw Hashimoto for the first time and watched a few mins of him vs. regal. I feel the same way I did when I first saw Takayama, expecting some fat sloppy guy not able to do much. If BIG TAK can surprise, anybody can. Can somebody recommend his best matches? I have like 25 d/l'ed to be watched .

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

vs Vader 4/24/89
vs Hase 12/14/94
vs Regal 4/16/95
vs Choshu 9/2/96
vs Tanaka 2002 (forgot the date)
vs Tanaka 7/11/03
vs Kawada 2/22/04 (my puro MOTD)
Any match with Tenryu.

That's a pretty good place to start. Drawing a blank on anything he did from 90-92; had a ton of multi-mans, I think.
