    Whenever I go back and revisit him, I'm blown away by what an amazing worker John Cena was in 2007. The beauty of this match is that it seems minimalist on the surface but is actually quite rich in detail for those willing to pay attention. Note the little touches like Cena coughing after escaping a chinlock and Orton selling the STF's impact on his leg after hitting an RKO. I recall reading at the time that there was a conscious attempt to dial back the style after the Benoit tragedy. It's a shame that this direction wasn't explored as much as it could have been.
  2. Even in a vacuum, I'd give the nod to MX/RR. Scott's a fine FIP, but it's hardly an insult to say that he's no Ricky Morton.
  3. R.I.P., Bobby Heenan

    I'm sure Monsoon is meeting him at the pearly gates and threatening to have him thrown out of there. RIP.
  4. When was the last time you two watched MX/R&R at Wrestlewar? Because MX/Steiners is almost a complete carbon copy of that match. There were more spots than I could count that were simply lifted from it wholesale.

    I was recently reminded of wwe.com repeatedly referring referring to Miz as the Cleveland Screamer for some reason throughout 2011. A few examples: http://www.wwe.com/shows/raw/2011-05-09/results http://www.wwe.com/shows/raw/2011-05-16/results http://www.wwe.com/shows/capitolpunishment/2011/riley-miz I honestly have no idea how they got that past the radar.

    How did I not post in this thread previously? Anyway, here's a pair of classic WCW tags: Then there's this: Amazingly, this is only their second-best match with each other.

    I'm almost certainly in the minority, but I think cheating of the feet on the ropes/fistful of tights variety should be done away with. When every sport is incorporating instant replay to minimize human error, having such blatantly tainted finishes makes wrestling look behind the times.

    On a similar note, I've been watching quite a bit of 92-93 Flair lately, and what struck me was the quality of his arm work. Dude could work an arm like an Anderson when he wanted to, which makes sense since they were kayfabe cousins. Also, 1993 Rick Rude is due for a re-evaluation. Conventional wisdom states that he fell off a cliff after his neck injury, but I'm not finding that to be the case at all. In particular, the Iron Man match with Dustin Rhodes has been unfairly maligned.

    I must confess that I haven't done a deep dive into the Mero oeuvre, but I'm a big fan of the KOTR match with Austin. Then again, 1996 Austin might be my favorite wrestler of all time. He even had a good match with Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

    Cena/Umaga my dudes.

    For a more outside-the-box pick, I'll go with Sekimoto/Okabayashi vs. Akebono/Hama on January 3. Power wrestler vs. fat wrestler is pretty much an idiot-proof matchup. It's on Ditch's website.

    Multi-man elimination tag matches are the best thing about 80s New Japan, and this is my favorite of the bunch.
  15. 1991 is shaping up to be the Hardcore Title of MOTY picks.
