Low Ki vs KENTA Final Battle 2005
KENTA vs Bryan Danielsom Glory by Honor V 2006
Do Fixer vs Blood Generation Supercard of Honor 2006
CZW vs ROH (Cage of Death) Death before Dishonor IV 2006
Briscoes vs Steen/Generico (ladder match) Man Up 2007
AJ Styles vs Paul London Night of Grudges 2003
Low Ki vs Daniels vs Danielson Era of Honor Begins 2002
Samoa Joe vs Punk II 2004
Samoa Joe vs Kenta Kobashi 2005
Embassy vs Generation Next (cage match) Steel Cage Warfare 2005
CM Punk vs Austin Aries Death before Dishonor III 2005
Bryan Danielson vs Nigel McGuiness Unified 2005
Low Ki vs Bryan Danielson Round Robin Challenge 2002
Paul London vs Michael Shane Unscripted 2002
Paul London vs Bryan Danielson Epic Encounter 2003
Nigel McGuiness vs Austin Aries Rising Above 2007
Nigel McGuiness vs Tyler Black Take No Prisoners 2008
Samoa Joe vs Jay Briscoe (cage match) At Our Best 2004
Austin Aries vs Samoa Joe Final Battle 2004
Roderick Strong vs Bryan Danielson Vendetta 2005
CZW vs ROH 100th Show 2005
AJ Styles vs Paul London Night of Grudges 2003
Nigel McGuiness vs Jimmy Rave (Fight without Honor) Fifth Year Festival Finale 2007
Bryan Danielson vs Takeshi Morishima Manhattan Mayhem II 2007
El Generico vs Claudio Castagnoli Race to the Top Tournament Night 2 2007
Claudio Castagnoli vs Nigel McGuiness vs Bryan Danielson vs Tyler Black Death before Dishonor VI 2008
I think CIMA, Dragon Kid, Ryo Saito & Susumu Yokosuka vs. Claudio, Aries, Delirious & Rocky from All Star Extravaganza III should be on there somewhere, but aside from that, this is an excellent list.

CZW vs ROH 100th Show 2005

This one totally caught me by surprise. ****1/2 and an easy inclusion here.

We should pick a date to all watch Joe vs. Punk II and tweet or report here. It's a match I want to rewatch. Haven't watched it in years and I'm curious how it holds up with 2016 eyes.

I like this idea - similar to the VOW live watch/tweet thing for MitB '11. Could get some nice attention for the project also.

Do we want to do a weeknight evening?
