Won;t make my list. As great of a moment as you'll ever see in Puro, but the middle of the match meanders far too much. Great beginning, great end, but a middle that bogs down the entire thing.

The joy of wrestling is everything is arbitrary in terms of taste. Some people care about limb work, some people care about storylines, etc.

For me emotional investment, crowd and in ring storytelling what sets apart a good match from a great match.

Tsuruta vs Misawa is one of the very best. The crowd is white hot, it was an accumulation of a the fading vet and grizzled vet that had been working six mans and tags for a while and lead to one of the greatest periods of wrestling ever.
