Great <10 minute matches

Recommended Posts

I have just watched Dragon Lee vs Kamaitachi from Jan 24th 2015. I felt for a 6 minute match, it was a whole heap of fun. (See below)

 

 

It got me thinking, what are some great sub 10 minute matches?

 

Off the top of my head, I'd go with:

 

Hashimoto v Zangiev from 4/24/89

 

 

Tiger Mask vs. Dynamite Kid from 8/30/80

 

 

Owen Hart vs. 123 Kid from KOTR 94 6/19/94

Daisuke Ikeda vs. Takeshi Ono from 10/26/14

 

 

KENTA vs. Ricky Marvin from 10/15/09

 

 

There's also the Lawler vs. Snowman match that was so different to anything else at the time.

No expressing how gutted I am the advertised KOTR 10 minute match between Michaels and Hart with the foundation cuffed to every ring post didn't happen. That would have been bags of fun, and would have been interesting to see Bret the heel against Michaels the face at that time.

Snowman vs. Jerry Lawler 6/2/90 USWA

 

Rey vs. Noble 5/1/04 Velocity

 

Basham vs. Jindrak 3/26/05 Velocity

 

Arn/Tully vs. Luger/Windham 3/27/88

 

Dandy vs. Rey 11/29/97 WCWSN

 

Eddy vs. Rey 12/27/97 WCWSN

 

Juventud vs. Dandy 1/10/98 WCWSN

 

Rey vs. Kidman 3/15/99 Nitro

 

Wataru Sakata vs. Kiyoshi Tamura 7/20/98 RINGS

 

I think the 12/15/97 Juventud/Rey vs. Parka/Psicosis from 12/15/97 Nitro is under 10 but not completely sure.

I had a list of these for a while which I wish I had kept around now.

 

A whole bunch of last year's En Busca would surely qualify. I don't really even remember specific matches because there were so many good ones.

is the playlist of all the matches Phil Schneider ranked Must See.

 

I always enjoyed these:

 

Akiyama vs. Kea (07/18/98)

 

Blue Panther vs. Virus (05/12/13):

I just watched Murakami vs Ishikawa from 11/00 again and that is 8 glorious minutes.

 

Vader vs Tamura from 6/94 is still my favorite Vader in UWFi match.

 

And the Pillman vs Windham taped fist match from the first SuperBrawl.

How long is the Lawler vs Funk No DQ match? THat's right around 10 minutes.

 

This video that KrisZ put on youtube has a Tommy Rich vs Brad Armstrong match that is a shockingly great 5 minute match.

Ugh why is there only the very end of The Bullet and Wrestling II tag match?? I don't care if they were both well past their prime by 89 that's like a dream team for me.

KENTA vs Ricky Marvin 2009

KENTA vs Takashi Sugiura 2011

Jun Akiyama vs Masakatsu Funaki 2012

 

And, speaking of Funaki, how has no one mentioned the GOAT Funaki/Nakano match from 1989?

Well damn, I missed out on all the fun it seems. Pretty much every match I was going to nominate has been nominated already. Really though, you can't go wrong with Zangiev/Hashimoto, Joe/Necro, or Owen/Shamrock.
