    P2B Greatest Crockett/WCW matches

    Man, there is so much here I haven't seen from the 80s. Thanks for all the recommendations everyone, I can't wait to dive into as much of this as I can.

    I'm back in the saddle of knocking the YBs in order, and just knocked out Jan. of 1995. 1994 ended up being one of my favorite years, so looking forward to what 1995 brings. Raven coming into ECW has definitely just improved the feel of it already. I didn't get into ECW as a kid until around late 1996 or so, but Raven was one of the first guys I was drawn to. I think that was probably the case for lots of teenagers around this time in1995 watching ECW. He looked cool, and definitely seemed like a big deal right out of the gate. Mitsuharu Misawa & Kenta Kobashi vs Toshiaki Kawada & Akira Taue (AJPW 01/24/95) was my favorite match for the month of Jan. , however I loved the big hoss battle that was Shinya Hashimoto vs Kensuke Sasaki (NJPW Tokyo Dome 01/04/95). I think the main thing that edged out the tag was the simple moment of Kobashi almost dying from all the damage, but he keeps kicking out of everything... then there is a moment you finally think the match will conclude, and Misawa comes in with an epic save. I just loved the moment. I loved the Hart vs. Diesel Royal Rumble match. I disagree with the notion of a carry job... Diesel had a ton of charisma and was firing back at Bret when they were trading punches, he had a great match with Bret Hart. There is lots of interference, but they both delivered, and it's the best WWF match of the month and probably top 10 of Diesel's career. I also thought that Randy Savage vs Arn Anderson (WCW Saturday Night 01/28/95) is a hidden gem. I thought it was great. Savage is explosive, Arn is Arn, I don't know, maybe it's just I love both guys, but I watched it twice. It's really the first sign of how truly awesome Savage still was, and one can understand why he didn't enjoy sitting on the shelf in the WWF. Great match, and for my enjoyment ranked up there with the other 4 I've talked about and was a MOTM candidate for me.

    Awesome list KB8! I updated the full list I had on page one with all the matches that have been noted so far in this thread. Clash 6 would be my first thought around #1 along with Tully/Magnum and Sting/Vader Starrcade… I do want to actually go through all the nominations and watch again though...

    I just finished up 1994. My favorite match from December is Vader vs. Jim Duggan @ Starrcade (loved the Hogan/Vader angle at the end of the show). The runner-up would be the Volk Han/Nagai match. I have to mention the Buddy Landell match vs. DWB @ the end of the year. Just classic cheating from Buddy - I LOVED it. This leads into my wrestler of the year. IMO Vader was in the most compelling knock down drag out brawls and matches of 1994 from Japan to US.... WOTY: Vader MOTY: Mitsuharu Misawa vs Toshiaki Kawada (AJPW 06/03/94) Runner-up: Vader vs. Takada - 08/18/1994 Honorable mentions: WMX Ladder Match, Kliq Action Zone Tag & Hart vs 123 Kid from Raw (oh, & I thought New Jack was dropping the best promos in 1994) Promotion of the Year: WCW Through 5 years 1991 is still my favorite. I do think 1994 easily topped 1993 for me. Possibly topped 1992 overall... Either way, great year! I had a ton of fun going through the YB and ready to roll on in to 1995 before too long.

    I'm not a Facebook guy either, but I'll go ahead and post some here that should definitely be in the discussion if someone wants to add them to the Facebook Page - or, if we want to start posting some here. Some of these are going to be the most obvious ones, but I look forward to some recommendations I possibly haven't seen yet... might as well start at the top: Slaughter & Kernodle vs. Streamboat & Youngblood - 03/12/1983 Tommy Rich vs. Buzz Sawyer - 10/23/1983 (GCW/NWA) Roddy Piper vs. Greg Valentine - 11/24/1983 Magnum TA vs. Tully Blanchard - 11/28/1985 Ric Flair vs. Ricky Morton - 07/05/1986 NWA US Tag Team Champions Midnight Express vs Fantastics - Clash of the Champions I Lex Luger & Barry Windham vs. Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard - 03/27/1988 Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat - 02/20/1989 Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat - 04/02/1989 (Clash 6) Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat - 05/07/1989 Ric Flair vs. Terry Funk - 07/23/1989 Ric Flair vs. Terry Funk - 11/15/1989 Ric Flair vs. Lex Luger - 02/25/1990 War Games - 02/24/1991 The Steiners vs. Sting & Lex Luger - 05/19/1991 The Enforcers vs. Ricky Steamboat & Dustin Rhodes - 11/19/1991 Ricky Steamboat vs. Rick Rude - 02/29/1992 War Games - Sting's Squad vs. Dangerous Alliance - 05/17/1992 Arn Anderson vs. Barry Windham 06/06/1992 Rick Rude vs. Ricky Steamboat - 06/20/1992 Sting vs. Vader - 07/12/1992 Sting vs. Vader - 12/28/1992 Sting vs. Vader - 02/21/1993 Ric Flair vs. Vader - Starrcade 1993 Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat - 05/14/1994 (TV) Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. - 10/26/1997 Sting vs. DDP - 04/26/1999 I'll add one that wouldn't make the tippy top of a list, but might be Randy Savage's last really good match and could be top 100 worthy... Bret Hart vs. Randy Savage - Slamboree 1998 A really great TV match that comes to mind: WCW World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair vs Brian Pillman - 4/13/91 Add: Sting vs. Cactus Jack - 6/20/1992; Dustin Rhodes vs. Vader from COTC XXIX; Sting vs. Vader Fall Brawl 1994
  9. It seems like this would have been a good time for Landell to finally ditch the nature boy gimmick and make a different path for himself in Memphis. He has the hair, the suits, and the robe. You can hear some folks in the Memphis audience shouting Ric Flair. I just don't get it. Maybe it just comes from not fully understanding what Buddy was going for, but I've watched many different eras of Buddy, and I guess he just thought this was his gimmick to stick with forever. I just think he had the opportunity here to get away from calling himself the nature boy and copying Flair's gimmick. He was good enough on his own merits that he didn't need that.
  10. This match is so fun. It totally delivered, I know what is to come, but I thought they put on a heck of a show here. Sherri was incredible! She is a top 3 manager of all-time easy. I'm watching the YB now, so thinking of it as if I didn't know the Dungeon of Doom storyline that lies ahead, I think this was pretty fantastic. Hogan was really laying it in with those chops at the top of the cage. I really like Sting coming out to save Hogan in the end as well. Hogan had the spotlight up to this point, as he should have. So, it's nice to see Sting being brought back into the main event as Hogan "retires" Flair. Sure, it was over the top, but man was it fun.
  11. Put me in the boat of loving this match and this Clash. The crowd was super hot, and I thought they worked this match stiffer than the match at the Bash. I thought this was a fun ride, and really entertaining. I can understand why they wouldn't want to take the belt immediately off Hogan after just winning it. The biggest name in wrestling history had just joined their company.
  12. Yeah, I dug this a lot. I agree it was the best of the G1 to this point, but I also seem to have liked it a little more than most here... it felt like two fighters slugging it out, like seeing Yatsu here & props for the Back to the Future theme...

    [1994-07-24-WCW-Saturday Night] Dusty and Dustin Rhodes

    I'm making my way through 1994 now, and I just watched this last night. Of course, I have seen this before, and of course it holds up. It's hands down the promo of the year and one of the best of all time. It's really cool watching this now and thinking about the Dustin/Cody moment from Double or Nothing earlier this year. Obviously, they are connected, and both very emotional. Both moments will go down as one of the best in either promotions history, and they are landmarks for the Rhodes Family. Incredible.

    [1994-07-14-RINGS] Akira Maeda vs Dick Vrij

    Man, I loved this. The intensity is off the charts. Awesome fight that feels longer than it really is (in a good way). Two thumbs up.
  15. This match is super fun. The crowd is really hot for Sting vs. Flair, as they always are, which is why NWA/WCW went back to it so many times. The crowd is eating up the early antics, and I love this type of simplicity in building up the early stages of a match between two huge personalities. Flair is really on point all night for this show, as he's looking to really build things up for the upcoming Hogan match. I loved his promo from the back (on screen) when Hogan was talking with Mean Gene. He reminded me of a crazy comic book villain. Flair is so awesome walking around the crowd, shouting at them... all Sting has to do is look at the audience and they flip out. Sting has lots of energy in his quick jolts of offense, but Flair masterly averts each one. I mean, this is the kind of stuff you buy a ticket for. This may seem like paint by numbers to some, but I say... come on! It's Sting vs. Flair! Sting sells really well during the beatdown. The superplex is awesome, and how about Sherri bump! She is one of the GOATs. The finish is a abrupt, but this a fun match. This combined with Hogan's debut and the Larry Z vs. Regal match make for pretty solid Clash. I dig your theory on Sherri DMJ, 5 years later ha.
