Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Kenta Kobashi (AJPW, Triple Crown, 01/20/97)
This is the match I call the greatest of all-time.
1/22/97 – Volk Han vs. Kiyoshi Tamura RINGS
3-3-97 Owen Hart vs. Davey Boy Smith
One of the best matches in Raw's history.
3-16-97 Dean Malenko vs. Eddy Guerrero WCW
Nearly as good as their ECW matches. This match, to me, is only behind their first ECW match and their last.
Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin (I Quit Match) (3/23 - Chicago) (WWF)
Unarguably one of the best WWF matches of all-time.
Toshiaki Kawada vs. Mitsuharu Misawa (04/02/97)
Half hour draw at the carny. Good match, but obviously nowhere near 6-94 or 6-97.
Toshiaki Kawada vs. Mitsuharu Misawa (06/06/97)
Explode Misawa's head theory was tested sternly in this match. Man, explanations for All Japan are redundant.
Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Akira Taue (Triple Crown - 7/25/97)
Taue's second best TC match with Misawa.
Sabu vs Terry Funk (8/9/97, ECW Arena)
Best barbed wire mess/match ever.
9/26/97 – Volk Han vs. Kiyoshi Tamura RINGS
The first RINGS match I ever watched. Also the best that I've ever seen.
10/5/97 – Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels WWF
First Hell in a Cell and HBK got his ass kicked for a long time.
Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Kenta Kobashi, 10/21/97
Misawa kicks the dog shit out of Kobashi in all of their matches ever but Kobashi has never stopped coming back for more. Nine months after losing his title Kobashi shows he's not a little kid anymore.
10/26/97 – Eddy Guerrero vs. Rey Misterio Jr. WCW
Mask vs. Title.
Never seen these: (but have read good things about them)
