    Donnie watches WWF 1985

    Cousin Junior has a match vs. one of the Moondogs in 85 that's actually a blast imo

    Garbage's MOTY list thread

    Blue Panther/Black Warrior/Mr. Mexico vs. Tony Rivera/Ringo Mendoza/Emilio Charles Jr. (CMLL 3/14/00) Can’t believe how on-fire CMLL were with these awesome trio sprints in early 2000. I’m losing count of the amount of blood feuds CMLL seem to want around this time but I’m of no complaints – to...

    Garbage's MOTY list thread

    Aja Kong vs. KAORU (GAEA 2/13/00) Well this certainly went a different route than I expected halfway through. Similar to Akiyama on Vader a month earlier, Kaoru gets the early jump on Aja, and even though it gets less time and there’s also an easy German suplex, I think I preferred how this was...

    Garbage's MOTY list thread

    few trios in the Satanico vs. Tarzan Boy feud El Satanico/Rey Bucanero/Ultimo Guerrero vs. Tarzan Boy/Olimpico/Antifaz (CMLL 1/14/00) Pretty awesome, mostly out of control trio. I was gonna watch the Tarzan Boy vs. Rey Bucanero match I remember loving but it was actually taped in 1999 so I...

    Garbage's MOTY list thread

    2000 START Jun Akiyama vs. Yoshihiro Takayama (AJPW 1/9/00) It’s wild how unnatural Yoshihiro Takayama looks with black to me despite being a Japanese man. I liked this match more the first time I watched it many years ago, and it isn't making a top 25, but it's still really good and I love...

    Garbage's MOTY list thread

    The 1990 countdown is done, so here's the top 25 I submitted. El Satanico vs. El Dandy, Hair vs. Hair (EMLL 12/14/90) Mitsuharu Misawa/Toshiaki Kawada/Kenta Kobashi vs. Jumbo Tsuruta/Akira Taue/Masanobu Fuchi (AJPW 10/19/90) Angel Azteca vs. El Dandy (EMLL 6/1/90) El Faraon vs. Pirata Morgan...

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    A worthy number 1. It was actually my own #1 for a while but the more I watched the more it got toppled. Actually it's the only match in my top 10 from before June, so I guess 1990 is a back-heavy year for me.

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    Yeahhhh I didn't vote for that either. It's very good, at times great, at some points outstanding, but sort of similar to Warrior/Hogan, I thought its main strengths were the beginning and the end, while the middle sort of meandered a bit. The tag matches they had from May to December all felt...

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    I think I messed up a lil because I could have sworn I had that and my #5 (Kandori vs. Harley) swapped around. If it wasn't a mess up then I do wish I had MX/Southern Boys at #5 instead of 6 anyway.

    The Sultan (Rikishi) has a tongue and uses it to put out a diss track on Hulk Hogan

    I can't believe he missed an opportunity to say "we wanna hear you say nword no more" IT WAS RIGHT THERE

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    I watched Hogan/Warrior for the first time in forever last year. Thought it started out about as perfectly as it could have and also had a great ending. the meat of the match wasn't blowing me away but I still get why the match does it for people. I think I'm of the opinion that there's a great...

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    Correct me if I'm wrong but is that the first unanimous vote so far?

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    I'm far from the first to say this but that's probably the last time Ric Flair truly felt like "The Man" in wrestling a big title match. There are great Ric Flair matches after it but none have that same feel of the classic Big Flair Title Match off the top of my head.

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    There are a lot of matches you could point to that represent "hatred" in wrestling, but I had Satanico/Dandy at #1 because its going to be one of my first examples going forward. Pure vitriol and disdain in a way that lucha often does best. Both guys were obscenely good throughout the year and...

    Greatest Match of 2000 - You Decide

    Looking forward to watching more CMLL from this year as well as Japanese indy stuff. I'm sure I already know several matches that'll make my 25 but I'm expecting more wildcards than 1990.

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    It is! Although it's mat-based instead of a violent brawl, and lucha mat work can be more alienating depending on familiarity with it (whereas 'two dudes whack each other and bleed' like Pirata/Faraon is about as inviting as wrestling gets). I sort of, kind of think I had Dandy/Azteca too low at...

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    It took me a couple watches to really get it, but that Kandori/Harley match is just incredible underdog vs. world beater wrestling. Kandori is a really mean grappler in all the best ways. Pirata vs. Faraon is just one of the best brawls ever imo. And there are way worse introductions to classic...

    Greatest Wrestling Match Of 1990 - The Countdown

    I had to do a double take because I thought there was no way I let that 5v5 slip down to #10 but I guess 1990 had more high end stuff that I assumed. Anyway that match rules like fuck and its one of the few matches I can think of, where I would have been fine with it going another 20 minutes for...

    Greatest Match of 1990 - You Decide

    I can't seem to find a private message function and I'm unsure if its because I don't have permission or I'm stoopid, what's the best way to submit the list?
