That's HIGH praise. Far too high. I would put 2012's DOMINION in front of WK7 and that's less than a year ago. Maybe if I rewatch things later this year I'll feel differently about feeling confident that it really could/should end the year as SOTY. If nothing else WK7 certainly put forward an early front-runner for MOTY. An actual legit candidate, not just a placeholder since we are so early into the year in Sakuraba/Nakamura.
It's interesting you compare this to Dominion because I did the exact same thing, I honestly think besides the main event WK7 was better in pretty much every way.
suzuki/Makabe, and both main events were all 4 stars plus.
Different people have given both the juniors match and Makabe/Shibata 4 stars as well. (my own opinion withstanding)
Maybe it was just me, but I really think the Tag Title match wasn't too far off from 4 either.
The dream tag, while certainly not a classic, had the crowd going nuts.
That's 7 matches that are at least very good, and up to five that many could legitimately call 'great.' For me, Dominion had two great matches, and maybe 2 more that were good. Dominion had a better undercard, but to me, solid little undercards aren't nearly as memorable as putting together as many incredible matches as I feel WK7 had. I'm not even dissing Dominion, its probably my favorite from last year, but this was outstanding.
