Don't do ratings, but if I had to for HHH/Taker and Bryan/Punk I'd have them both at about 4 1/2 for completely different reasons obviously.

I went to access and saw Dean Ambrose v Seth Rollins twice, both completely different matches, and both we're in the region of 3 3/4 or 4. Dunno if they're on youtube anywhere or something.

I have never been high on a Punk vs Dragon match before so I didn't know what to expect going in.

Just finished watching Naito/Okada. If this match would of went on like two more minutes, I would say ***** and my MOTY, but since it did not, ****3/4 and #3 on my MOTY list. Still top notch match though.

Just curious what you have rated above it that high?

Bryan/Punk was the nearest the WWE has had to a 5 star match since Michaels/Cena 60 minute match from the RAW in London.

Okada/Naito doesn't make my top ten for 2012, but not because it wasn't a very, very good match. My reasons are based on my personal filter. I follow Puro sporadically at best but I'm fairly familiar with most of the major players and a healthy number of lesser known talent, but I really wasn't particularly familiar with Okada's work, he seemed to come out of nowhere inserted directly into the title picture. Thus, I wasn't nearly invested enough to get those butterflies.

Great match though, has made me a subsequent fan of Kazuchika's work.

Purists will obviously shit all over stuff like the Michaels-Taker series, End of an Era, and even Lesnar/Cena, but to me those are the kind of matches that define WWE. They're gateway drugs, stuff non-fans can watch and appreciate. Essentially the pinnacle of Vince's product. Sometimes ya'll act like this isn't a television show with a single creator and show-runner and you try to rate these things based on your perception of a performance art. Which is fine, its your definition, but when I think about the Sopranos finale, I think about the entire series that came before it. So, with that in mind, End of an Era was a beautiful finale for me.

I think it even holds up as a Herb Kunze, psychological performance art piece or whatever as well, but that's just subjective I suppose.
