Re: Andre the Giant vs Stan Hansen (NJPW 09/23/81)

Also will make my list. Andre and Stan are geniuses at working as two larger than life big men.

Re: Chigusa Nagayo vs. Dump Matsumoto (AJW 08/28/85)

This is to me is what Magnum/Tully is to most. Dump Matsumoto strutting across the ring while Chigusa lays a bloody mess via scissors gouging is one of the greatest heel moments of all-time. Certainly will make my list.

Re: Carlos Colon vs. Stan Hansen (WWC 01/06/1987)

A perfect brawl to showcase the hate present in the Colon/Hansen feud. Absolutely vicious cowbell shots and rope choking spots. Colon feels like a superhero in his comebacks. Hansen is his usually great wild self. Solid chance it is a top 100 match ever.

Re: Dick Murdoch vs. Killer Karl Kox (NJPW 12/09/1976)

This is a a fairly minimalist yet bloody bar fight built primarily on punches and stomps but every single punch and stomp seems to matter so much. And the ending matches the bar fight feel perfectly by having Kox and Murdoch come across as two old drunken crazy pugilists who will let nothing stop th...

Re: Rick Rude vs. Ricky Steamboat (WCW 06/20/1992)

A no-doubter for me. Best match I've seen in WCW. Best Iron Man match ever.

Re: Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. (WCW 10/26/97)

Probably the 2nd best WCW match ever IMO after the Rude/Steamboat Iron Man match. Eddie does being a despicable asshole so well here and Rey comes off as a mega star.

It'll make my list. A mat wrestling clinic without any sense of self-indulgence.

Re: Magnum T.A. vs. Tully Blanchard (NWA 11/28/85)

Controversially, I've never really been moved by this match. I don't know if it's poor video quality or me having the emotions of a snowman, but I never really saw the visceral grittiness from this brawl that others did. Not say it doesn't look like a fight, of course, but it never feels like a tran...

Re: AJ Styles vs. Chris Sabin vs. Petey Williams (TNA 01/16/05)

It wouldn't make mine. There were some cool spots here but also other spots that I couldn't suspend disbelief on (primarily those involving rope-hanging next to the belt).

Re: Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels (WWE 10/03/05)

Nah, this is basically the most paint-by-numbers outline for an Iron Man match you could get. Not a very inspired effort from my standpoint.
