Plenty of classics in TNA, NJPW, Zero-One, PWG, and IWA-MS also.

Ki has some good pre ROH stuff that's worth checking out including his matches with Danielson at the Super 8 and King of Indies and his ladder match with Xavier from one of the NY indies in the early 2000s. All are on youtube I think.
To give perspective of how big this match was at the time, this was for the GHC junior title and main evented the show, even though Marufuji defended the GHC heavyweight title on the same show vs Bryan Danielson (this was the period where NOAH briefly tried the hot juniors on top but got gun shy after a bad Budokan draw). Low Ki was the hottest thing in the U.S. and KENTA was the hottest thing coming from Japan, so this was a legit dream match and it delivered.
I've said this a million times, but my brothers, who are not wrestling fans, walked in on me watching this DVD once, and were instantly enamored with Ki and spent the rest of the day YouTub'ing his shit.
