What match are you currently watching atm?

The thread is pretty simple. What match are you currently watching and if you could, can you link it, so that other people could find different ways to kill time by watching matches.

I am currently watching John Morrison vs Sheamus in a ladder match which took place in TLC 2010.

Part 1

Part 2

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

i like this idea to spam all the classic puro i watch . last night i watched Punk vs Joe from "World Title Classic", the first in their trilogy. tonight i'm gonna watch Punk vs Joe II. It's been a while and I've never seen Punk vs Joe III so watching the first two as a primer.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

Watched Punk/Joe II last night and like the previous viewings, it delivered. I do think it's odd that Punk was winning the strikefests and no selling Joe for the first 45 minutes and the last 15 it was Joe doing that to Punk, seems like it should've been the other way around.

Punk/Joe III was definitely on the level of the previous match and had the huge match atmosphere. It's a match that should be seen by all wrestling fans. The sleeper spot and the finish were incredible.

Watching HBK vs Jericho at WM 19. Its pretty much what you expect out of these guys in a first-time match-up.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

Downloaded a set somebody put together that had every match from Bryan Danielson's ROH title win until he lost it. will happily give a link if anybody's interested. I've seen a bunch of these but it's fun watching the best wrestler in the world do his thing.

He won vs James Gibson (Jamie Noble) in a very good match. Easily in the ****1/4-****1/2 range
1st defense vs Austin Aries - i was a little underwhelmed by this match. it wasn't bad but i expected a much better match between these two. worth a watch anyhow.
2nd defense vs Steve Corino - did not watch because quality sucked and audio was out of sync
3rd defense vs Roderick Strong - this match is around ****1/4. the first half is kind of whatever because Danielson is trying to be a heel. second half is very good and the finish is making me question whether it was a shoot ending or planned ending. it was intense.

Also d/l'ed "The Summer of Punk" that ROH released a while ago. Again can send a link if anybody wants it.
Punk vs Aries - ****1/2. The crowd was off the charts for this match and it made it that much more special. The end was kind of wtf worthy which keeps it from being in the best matches of all time category.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

Some more from the AmDrag title reign...

defense 4 vs. Chris Sabin: a pretty meh match by Danielson standards. he pulled out all of Rodericks moves after the match they had 6 days earlier and beat him with Roddy's finisher.
defense 5 vs. Roderick Strong @ Vendetta (one week after their previous encounter): A helluva a match. It blows away their previous match which I threw at 4 1/4-4 1/2. This match is ****ing long but they keep up the intensity for 50 minutes. This is widely considered in the top 10 of ROH matches and the top 3 of US matches for 05.

Danielson vs Strong - Vendetta

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

Watching John Cena vs HBK. Took place during Raw of 2007. They got the whole 2nd hour slot to just wrestle.

Anywho, for me, I thought that this was Cena's best match before his match with Punk at MITB 2011.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

defense 6 vs Rocky Romero: pretty meh match. the worst I've seen Danielson in but it sure isn't because of Danielson. ***1/4.
vs Homicide vs Roderick Strong: this match takes place in the FIP promotion and is not a ROH title match but a FIP title match. Homicide is the champ and has been for 19 months I think they said. Match is only 5-8 minutes long but tells a great story. ***3/4.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

defense 7 vs Naomichi Marufuji: file was corrupt
defense 8 vs Chris Hero: this match takes place in the middle of the ROH vs CZW feud (which was awesome). really good fast paced with a very hot crowd. ****
w/Jay Lethal vs Aries/Strong: as expected this was a very heated match with Bryan's feud w/Strong ongoing and lots of history with Aries. this match is not to be slept on. ****1/4
defense 9 vs AJ Styles: I haven't yet seen their classics from 03/04 but imagine this match doesn't hold a candle to them. it starts off very heated and personal like dragon is going to murder AJ but then it calms down and it feels like they go through the motions as it feels like AJ never had a decent near fall or move vs danielson. pretty disappointing considering how high their previous two matches are rated by most. ***3/4-**** for this one.

i probably watch hbk vs undertaker from WM25 at least once per month and gonna watch that now. easily a top 10 match of all time in the USA and i'd go so far to say it's the match of the 2000s from anywhere in the world. kobashi/joe and KENTA/Danielson from GBH V Night 2 i'd put on that level too since 2000.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

Ahhhh, I always like a good Benoit vs Jericho match-up, and I'm going to watch one right now, but this is not in the WWE or in WCW, heck they didn't even used their Jericho or Benoit name in this one. This took place in the Super J Cup 1995, where Lionheart faces the defending champion of the event, Wild Pegasus.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

Just finished Kawada vs Stan Hansen on 2/28/93 which is truly one of the manliest matches out there. This match is physical from before the opening bell till the very end with several omg wtf moments and Hansen's best match (yes it's > vs Kobashi from 7/93 that got 5*).
