    Your #100 Spot

    No guarantee, but I'd love to make room for my man Gary Albright.

    Indeed, great match.

    Barry Windham

    I've been watching a shit ton of Barry matches since I last posted in this thread and he seems like a lock at this point. Even if his classics are just the Flair and War Games matches, most everything else I've seen him in ranges from at least "pretty good" to "great". Still a great offensive wrestler and I've really started to appreciate how versatile he could be. I prefer him as a tough as nails "never back down" face, but he could be a good big shot heel as well.

    I would love more recs if you have them!

    Shawn Michaels

    Personally I'm just sticking with what he himself did in the ring.

    Ricky Morton

    I'll re-watch the Andersons cage match as it's been some time, but I recall liking the Rockers cage match more. Same with the WrestleWar Midnights match. Both good matches though. I don't think I've ever seen the Russians match, looking forward to that.

    Terry Funk

    Terry has been flirting with top 10 status for me for years, perhaps the next 5 years are what finally put him over the top, ha. There are gaps in his career I haven't seen, but his 80's work with Hansen, Lawler, and Flair, his 90's indie work against Foley and Gilbert, and his batshit insane FMW tags is a pretty insane amount of variety.

    Jun Akiyama

    For more recent Jun matches, I'd recommend these: vs. Kai (4/29/2013) vs. Kento Miyahara (7/23/2016) w/ Takao Omori vs. Shuji Ishikawa and Suwama (1/3/2018) w/ Atsushi Aoki vs. Takashi Sugiura and Daisuke Harada vs. Suwama (4/15/2018) vs. Zeus (4/21/2018) vs. Naomichi Marufuji (4/25/2018) w/ Joe Doering and Yuji Hino vs. Zeus, the Bodyguard, and Shingo Takagi (4/30/2018) w/ Daisuke Sekimoto vs. Kento Miyahara and Yoshitatsu (11/20/2018) vs. Keisuke Ishii (12/16/2018) vs. Tetsuya Endo (2/14/2021)

    Shawn Michaels

    Because I think Rockers vs. Rose and Sommers and Rockers vs. Brainbusters are better than anything the RnR's ever did. I never got the hype behind RnR's-MX. MX's best match isn't even against RnR's. Edit: I see your point about Rose and Sommers being more responsible for the greatness of those matches. Which I guess is a fair point but I still haven't seen a RnR match that reaches those peaks. Even random tag matches I'm more likely to enjoy a Rockers match.

    Shawn Michaels

    Count me as another "he'll rank for me, I just have no idea where" voter. The Rockers might be my pick for greatest tag team ever and honestly I think Shawn was a better FIP than Morton (blasphemy, I know). I think his 90's run is mostly very good and he was in my picks for the two greatest WWE matches ever (first Hell in a Cell and Mankind Mind Games). It's his comeback period that I really struggle with. I don't even think it was "bad" per se. Apart from stuff like the Taker matches (which are good but not even MOTYC's), his matches are just "eh". My gut says top 50, but there's no guarantee he'll remain there.

    Aja Kong

    I think I gotta go Bull. Not just the cage match or the cathartic passing of the torch, but those vicious tag matches with a combination of Iwamoto, Kimura, and Inoue.

    Koji Kanemoto

    Not sure how active he is nowadays, but have always been a big Kanemoto fan. The Samurai and Wagner BOSJ Finals matches are probably the biggest feathers in his cap, but he has tons of matches going all the way into the 2010's that are really good. Very good, stiff offense and can play a sympathetic babyface or a gigantic asshole. My only gripe is there are a few instances of him no-selling spots to get his shit in, but it's not like it happened every match either.

    Ultimo Dragon

    I'm on the fence about Ultimo, but I've always liked him and his best stuff is really good. If I do a deeper dive he could sneak his way on.
