Topics I've Started

Daisuke Ikeda & Yuki Ishikawa vs Makoto Hashi & Kengo Mashimo (Futen 01/30/11)

20 March 2017 - 07:43 PM

Slightly disappointing compared to most of the 2010 stuff but that's to be expected when you raise the bar that high. Still this is, not surprisingly, fantastic. Hashi and especially Mashimo are just determined to take down Ikeda while the vets try to use their skill and experience to craft a win. **** 1/4


AJ Styles vs Hiroshi Tanahashi (NJPW 08/14/15)

17 March 2017 - 10:07 PM

Very good but disappointing given the hype surrounding it and the competitors involved. I liked Styles heeling it up, the dueling leg work motif and some of the spots and drama. My favorite spot was Tanahashi selling his neck on a bridge to put over the lingering effects of Styles crazy springboard reverse DDT. I thought they had the pieces of a great match but weren't quite able to put it together. Still, very much recommended. *** 1/2


Eddie Guerrero vs Kurt Angle (WWE Summerslam 08/15/04)

17 March 2017 - 09:51 PM

I think this is the match where Angle allegedly told Eddie to sell less because it was interfering with his spots. Not sure if it's true or not.

 

I thought Angle's selling was fine for the most part and Eddie's great ankle selling covered up for any inconsistency. Angle's performance was good but a bit odd, one minute he would do awesome matwork and tenaciously work the leg and then the next minute he would use the Angle Slam as a transition move.  

 

Eddie was just outstanding in terms of offense, selling, character work: just someone at the height of his powers. Despite some weird moments and lackluster pacing at times, overall I thought this hit the great mark. Excellent matwork, continuity with the past, creative spots, intensity. ****


WWE TV 3/13 - 3/19

Is HHH watching Volk Han in his spare time? What was that leg hold at the end? Surprised he didn't just do a figure four.

Followed by Bret vs. Austin WM 13, Shawn vs. Taker WM 26, Bryan vs. HHH WM 30 and Brock vs. Roman WM 31 as rest of the Top 5 (in that order)

 

Some other really good/great matches I can think of - Eddie vs. Angle WM 20, Shawn vs. Cena WM 23, MITB I, Edge vs. Foley WM 22, Austin vs. Rock WM 17 etc.

 

Also what is the worst WM match ever?
