    Your #100 Spot

    I always try to find more Super Dragon.

    Current New Japan

    I recall hearing it was postponed but it's strange because the show is still listed on the schedule and they are resuming shows with the Road to Wrestle Grand Slam title.

    Honestly, use this as an opportunity to just throw the new title in the bin and bring back the HW and IC titles.

    Per the website, the Dome show is still on so I imagine it would be Okada vs either Ibushi or Shingo.

    Can't wait to see Shooter in action.

    Rey Mysterio Jr.

    Rey is my number 10 right now, but I mostly agree with finding those matches "just" very good. That could bump him a bit lower but he ain't leaving the top 20.

    All Elite Wrestling

    I agree that Cody doesn't really need to be champion. They still have Page in the wings, have struck gold with Darby, and Mox will for sure get another reign down the line. I wouldn't necessarily be against removing the stip in a renewed feud with him and MJF though. That feud still has plenty of juice.

    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 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.

    Cody loves to bleed. He realized he's good at it and just wants to show off, ha.

    Great match, bump was silly and commercials were unfortunate, but I had a damn good time with this.

    I would think he would be well enough for the Dome. Hopefully, anyway if it isn't a severe case.

    I loved Nate in that match. First time I had ever heard of him and when it was over I thought he was so cool.

    Shingo-Ospreay was great but don't think it's better than their BOSJ match like many are claiming it is. Credit to them for making 45 minutes feel a lot shorter, but still felt needlessly padded in the beginning.

    Samoa Joe

    I love the Cage of Death match, but having Super Dragon would've definitely been a plus.

    That trios match looks great.
