    Any Flair-Steamboat from 1989.

    Pretty much any 1989 NWA was solid.

    Lol at anyone who takes Meltzers rating system as gospel. Guy is a mark and compromised at best.

    Ill never forget Jeff climbing that ladder, hearing JR screaming "Climb the ladder kid, make yourself famous!", and thinking to myself "holy shit, are they gonna put the strap on him?". Awesome match.

    Yeah...that was a great example of what makes a match great. Even though we all knew beyond a shadow of a doubt there was no way in hell Jeff was beating Taker...when he was on that ladder we all believed Jeff was going to be champ. When they can suck you in even when you know better...that's some good friggin work.

    Yep. Totally sucked in during that match.

    It's been over a decade since I watched matches live and that one still sticks out as one where you forget reality and enjoy the ride.

    That makes a match 5 star to me. It's not the level of technique but the level of emotion invoked.

    That match already got 5 stars. Or do you mean it should be 6 stars?

    I mean I consider it one of the ones that deserve 5 stars unlike many of the other ones that do.

    Meltzer should stick to scooping everyone and not this BS.
