Not to me haha. Just sort of backs up what I've always said about Bret, that he's fine but doesn't really resonate with me on a higher level.

 

For what it's worth, the Bret matches I like most are Austin at WM, and the Owen cage match. The latter was always one of my favourite "old" matches back when 90% of the "old" stuff I'd seen was whatever happened to get on WWE released DVDs. But there's nothing that would come too close to my personal list.

 

No lucha matches is far more interesting to me, now that I've noticed that. For how much more I "get" and enjoy lucha these days, I still don't have even one standout match that I can point to for a list like this. My favourite lucha match is probably still When Worlds Collide. With lucha all the matches blend together for me, I just let them wash over me and see what takeaways I got from them in terms of individual workers. But that was looking at it through a GWE lens.

Finally someone who expresses the exact same view about Hart as I do.

List kinda sucks Jimmy. At times, an open troll on standards of decency and good taste.

Nothing else could endorse my list better than this.

That's a real list, Jimmy. None of this bloody pandering from BIGBORE.

Yeah but at the end of the day she's put Trish Stratus matches and HHH vs Shelton Benjamin over Clash 6; so you know. If the new paradigm is to celebrate that, it's a paradigm that is ultimately wanting.

That's because she has a pulse. Yiou sure stopped defending the voting base in a hurry.

Let's all marinate in the juices of unbridled subjectivity and celebrate as Justin Bieber fans gleefully declare Believe as being "better than Nirvana, Bob Dylan and Prince combined".

One fan was quoted as saying, "the music just speaks to me so much more. I just love 'All Around the World' featuring Ludacris! It means so much to me!"

Another said, "Justin Bieber gives us the eternal cry of youth, his music will be remembered for years to come".

Let us celebrate.

I now wholeheartedly regret ranking Clash VI over Shelton vs Viscera and Victoria vs Cherry.

I might review some of these matches later, why not.

I don't begrudge you your silly little Ted matches mate.

Love that Shelton/Viscera match. Watched New Years Revolution on a whim last month and was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Really fun match that no-one talks about.

We've definitely seen every possible variant of ranking Flair-Steamboat trilogy now.

I was 1. Clash, 2. Chi-Town, 3. Wrestlewar

Chad was 1. Clash, 2. Wrestlewar, 3. Chi-town

I think Tim was 1. Chi-town, 2. Clash, 3. Wrestlewar

And now elliott is 1. Wrestlewar, 2. Clash, 3. Chi-town

Pretty amazing.


I agree with Chad.
1. Clash VI (my all time favorite match too)
2. Wrestle War '89
3. Chi-Town Rumble '89

Just watched Shelton/Viscera because of this and...it didn't stand out at all. Actually, the only noteworthy thing was the presence of Shelton's 'momma' at ringside. Top contender for one of the most annoying things I've ever seen, in or out of wrestling.

 

Verdict: I regret watching!

4. Trish Stratus vs Mickie James - WWE Wrestlemania 22


 

 

Watched this based on the high ranking and it was quite good. The character work was interesting and Mickie's work on Trish's leg looked really good and Trish sold it extremely well. Also the finish is a good example for why penalizing matches for botches can be counterproductive as the messed up spot at the end can be seen as a positive by saying Trish's bad leg buckled (which adds to the match) instead of treating it like negative and saying they screwed up. *** 1/2

11. Trish Stratus vs Lita - WWE Raw 6th December 2004

 

 

Very good stuff. Hard fought and they managed to generate quite a bit of drama. Lita was good as the babyface challenger and Trish was great as the desperate heel champion. *** 1/2

 

 

5. Trish Stratus vs Lita - WWE Unforgiven 2006

 

This time the roles were completely reversed and both adapted to them well. Another good match. *** 1/4

My list was in chronological order, but since everyone else is doing rankings, I will as well. I didn't do any extensive rewatching or analysis, just a quick "which one would I rather watch" gut reaction. My top ten is pretty well set in stone, but everything after that is tentative. I'll probably change my mind as soon as I click Post.

 

 

Yep this kind of list is an eternal work in progress. Posted mine a few hours ago and would already make some big changes.
