Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
I've finally got around to re-watching most of the Dragon/Nigel matches, and 6YA is the best one imo. I just watched this tonight and I don't remember it being so fucking amazing. It's perfect. Dragon saying he wouldn't go after Nigel's head because of the concussion he suffered in his last match with Aries, Nigel saying he wouldn't compete and then delivering an absolutely unbeatable amazing character performance in the match, gradually getting more and more pissed off with the crowd booing him and turning full blown heel in the process of the match. Nigel getting too cocky and giving Dragon chances to make a comeback, Bryan keeping to his word and not going after the head but the body instead (he doesn't throw one strike to the head at all), Nigel USING HIS HEAD AS A WEAPON TO INJURE DANIELSONS INJURED EYE! Holy shit, it doesn't get better than that from a storytelling and character perspective. The best Dragon/Nigel match, and maybe, maybe the best ROH match ever. If not then it is easily in my top 3.
EDIT! Sorry for double post btw.
