I'm glad you brought up that Slamboree 1998 match.  I had not seen that in probably 5-8 years.  I watched it this morning and loved it.  I can imagine I was probably annoyed by the finish back in 1998, but I don't care at all now.  So, that's probably why I didn't remember how good the match was.  Piper was fine.  Savage was fantastic.  I loved his selling of basically everything.  stro has the stuff that really popped out up above there, and I really liked how the knee damage caused the slow pin attempt following the elbow drop. 

 

As far as Steamboat, within the past week or so I watched:

 

11/07/1985 - Wrestling Classic - short but sweet

12/07/1985 - Boston

07/27/1986 - Toronto - Probably 3rd favorite of the bunch

10/28/1986 Superstars taping - aired 11/22/1986

11/01/1986 - Boston - Fun callback to the foreign object from the Tito Match

11/08/1986 - Philadelphia

01/05/1987 - Hogan & Steamboat vs. Savage & Honky - Meadowlands Arena - Savage tried to use the ring bell in this one too

01/10/1987 - Philadelphia

01/27/1987 - Ft. Myers

02/15/1987 - Toronto - 1st

03/29/1987 - Mania III - 2nd

05/15/1987 - Houston

 

They are all really good to great.  02/15/1987 remains my favorite, but man it's all so good.  I'll have to look into that 4-disc set.  I need to see what I'm missing.

I think I had seen the Houston match, either way I really enjoyed it. I loved the callback with the foreign object to the Tito Santana match in Boston. Philly was similar, but I thought it was better than the Boston match all around. WC I had seen, and it's short but sweet. 12/7/85 was really good too. Lot's of great selling from Savage in that one.

Thanks! I'll be checking all that out. I've seen Wrestling Classic, but I don't remember it.

Well, I just watched Hogan & Steamboat vs. Savage & Honky Tonk Man from Meadowlands Arena 01/05/1987.  It's a pretty fun edition to this feud.  Savage tries to use the ring bell in that match as well.

Yeah, this match is great!  I'd say it's my third favorite of their matches I've seen, and that's high praise.  I think I'd probably rate it around the same too.  I thought Steamboat did such an excellent job selling his fatigue down the stretch.

 

I've seen:

 

07/27/1986 - Toronto

11/22/1986/taped 10/28/1986 - Superstars

01/10/1987 - Philadelphia

01/27/1987 - Ft. Myers

02/15/1987 - Toronto - My personal favorite of the bunch.

and of course, Mania III - 03/29/1987

 

Any recommendations out there for something I may have missed?  I think all of these matches are fantastic.  If you watch them in order, you really have such a great story.  If I'm missing any, somebody point me in the right direction.
