More power to them. There probably are some things some of us could learn from some of those polled, and vice versa, but I suspect it wouldn't go well.

I thought their top 10 was a pretty fair list. I don't think I've seen that Ted Petty match with Quack and Claudio. I going to have to seek that one out.

Not everybody likes brawling/deathmatch stuff, so I don't have a hard time believing someone would prefer junior Onita. I'm not a huge fan of the exploding barbedwire stuff myself.


I'm psyched anyone is talking about any Onita in 2018 to be honest :)

His recent exploding baseball bat stuff is fun but, quite goofy BTW. For example: Atushi Onita, Aja Kong & Okamoto vs Bob Sapp, Jaguar Yokota & TARU - Explosion match (05/12/17 Zero-1)

Also, Quack vs Claudio is a blast. The finish is kinda mind blowing IIRC.

Part of me thinks that the culture of searching for hidden gems means leaving behind established "classics".  Granted I only say that because that's how I am ha

That list isn't nearly as horrific as I thought it would be. It's actually a pretty good view into the mind of someone that has focused mostly on the U.S. scene and mainstream puro.

Looking over this again, it comes across as a single person's (or perhaps 2-3 people's) list. Its not really like its focused on the US scene and mainstream puro after closer inspection.

It's super WWE heavy, with uber pimped NJ matches from the last few years. Then it seems like randomly inserted matches from a variety of top 10 lists. Top AJPW matches from this list sprinkled here, some PWG matches from their Best Of comps with mainstream guys, some ROH matches over there, little WCW/JCP sprinkled in...So it looks like its well balanced but, its so biased. For instance, other than the Steiners '91 WO MOTY there are no other NJPW matches from the 90's...not 1 Liger match for instance. And no Tiger Mask match. So, the 90's Jr. & TM negative viewpoints have reached the mainstream fans?

Edit: Never mind saw the TM Dynamite match in there

But even then, I get the feeling that's the only match that the list maker(s) saw from 80's NJPW. Like OK, this is the best that 80's NJ has to offer then, that's all I need to see!

I think it would have been better had they not numbered the list :)

By checking this list on Reddit, it says it was done via cagematch ratings system and votes from people, also the posts were not upvoted much so I would suggest one reason for the seemingly random placements of Danielson Vs hero etc is that it was there based off its very high rating on cagematch, not people voting for it.

Well, there you go. That list makes a lot more sense now.

No it was only based on the votes. The Cagematch rating is only given as a note of interest.

The misinformation era continues.
