A few obvious ones:
Misawa vs Kobash 3/1/03



Kobashi vs Akiyama 7/10/04


Kobashi vs. Takayama 4/25/04


Kobashi vs. Sasaki 7/18/05

That Kobashi/Misawa match from March of 03 is legitimately my favorite match of all time. I can go back and re-watch it every few months and never get tired of it.

KENTA vs Naomichi Marufuji - 10/29/2006 is one of my favorite matches of all time and I know it's also Lanza's as well. Image

I came across this screenshot recently on twitter so now I need to see this in High Def.

Awesome pic. Odd to see a shot from this match with this sort of quality after years of watching grainy YT type uploads.

I'm hoping for G+ airs a KENTA or Marufuji special with this footage remastered in High Def.

I don't remember the name of the website I use to buy my Noah stuff from back in the day but they were dvd rips of the master recording from the TV broadcast. I just watched Morishima & Yone vs. Shibata & KENTA and the picture quality was great(so was the match)

in my opinion the BEST two minute match ever, tells a great story of KENTA adapting to Marvins tricks while Ricky tries to stay one step ahead.

Best "short" match ever. We talk about it all the time as one every single person has to see. It's the most exhausting and fulfilling two minutes in wrestling history.

How do you compare this to Hiromu squashing KUSHIDA this year? I guess Hiromu was in the Marvin ambush position, but in his case he got the job done.
