    Four Years On: An Updated GWE Ballot

    Great stuff! Currently working on my own list.

    Greatest year ever by a wrestler

    Kobashi 1993 has to be in the mix I think. Probably his best year in terms of peaks and great performances against different wrestlers (Hansen twice, William's, Gordy, Kawada, Tag League final).

    My New Year's Revolution: The Rewatchening

    One of the reasons I dig this thread is the analysis often has me revisiting some of these matches. Like I recall not really caring for Orton-Cena '07 when I first saw it but now I'm probably going to revisit it to see if it's better than I recall.

    AJPW four pillars vs NJPW cornerstones

    Going back to Okada giving folks their best matches, I dont agree with that necessarily but he's usually going to get at least get something decent out of his opponent even if tends to stick a bit too much to his formula at times. The 2018 G1 saw the biggest talent disparity between blocks in recent memory and yet he gave nearly everyone their best match.

    That's where I'm at I think. Okada's body of work has become increasingly impressive over the years and barring any sort of major injury or drop-off, he will definitely solidify himself as an all-time great but not quite a number 1 contender.

    I'll have more to say, but I will say that I think Misawa, one of my all-time favorites, is better than Okada, my current favorite.

    AEW Revolution

    Thought the show was terrific. Hager-Dustin and Nyla-Statlander disappointed and Cody-MJF was a bit of a mixed bag, but everything else I think fired on all cylinders. The tag title match in particular was tremendous. Solid MOTYC for me and honestly one of the best U.S. tags I've ever seen.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Looks like Wrestle-1 might be finished. They're suspending operations indefinitely on April 1st and all their talent will be released.

    All Elite Wrestling

    Archer could definitely be a big deal. Crazy how much he was able to raise his stock this past year.

    Current New Japan

    Agreed on Shingo-Ishii. RPG3K vs. Mega-Coaches was good but by God did it feel 10 minutes longer than it actually was. Golden Aces-G.O.D. was pretty good if not great and actually makes the tag scene interesting. Think this is the first time since starting to watch NJPW 4 years ago are every single title held by people I like and would push.

    Best In The World 2025?

    Dragon Lee and Hiromu will also be in contention if both guys' bodies hold up.

    Current New Japan

    Really good show with Hiromu-Lee being MOTN. Those Phoenix Plex teases man...They got a bit destroyer-happy near the end but another excellent chapter to their neverending rivalry. Mox-Suzuki was the violent brawl I hoped it would be although the final chair sequence felt a bit contrived. Since Mox wore an eyepatch in NJPW I expect his arm to be bandaged up tomorrow on Dynamite, heh. Roppongi 3K-SZGK was really good and hopefully a sign that 3K will get a decent reign this time. The main event was really good but felt like they didn't really kick things into a new gear until Naito got busted open. I liked that they worked a more consistent pace without your usual padding, but I think there could have been more escalation. All in all, a great week of shows for NJPW and 2020 continues to get off to a great start.

    P2B Greatest Crockett/WCW matches

    Probably the first War Games, Sting's Squadron-Dangerous Alliance, all three Flair-Steamboat matches, both Funk-Flair matches, Magnum-Tully, and Rey-Eddie.

    Keiji Mutoh vs Genichiro Tenryu (NJPW/WAR/AJPW)

    Most would point to the 2001 Triple Crown match as their best and I would agree. Grumpy, hard-hitting Tenryu is my favorite Tenryu but he's also terrific in these more technical championship matches. It's a bit slow in the beginning but builds extremely well. I love escalation in longer matches like these because it makes everything feel earned and that the slow start was worth the wait. I would probably still go Park-Santo as the 2001 MOTY but this is an extremely close second.
