since you're talking wrestling outside the U.S.
i have to mention one moment i will never forget from CMLL (or aybe AAA? whatever Mexico lol)
It was a mask vs mask match, as you know those matches are bigger draws than the titles over there and the two wrestlers among the most populars.
Rayo de Jalisco vs 100 caras 2 out 3 falls....
the anticipation was huge for this one. i remember the entrance from Jalisco dressed as a mariachi and out of nowhere 100 caras delivers my first ever guitar shot to the head busting it in pieces.
crowd went nuts and match was awesome.
100 caras lost
The other one would be Oro dying in the ring from a short fall.
Around that time frame Meltzer was going off about the girls in Japan and how they were basicly on another level in terms of ring work. Now, this was when the E was in full Hulkamania mode. There was one tape made that was three hours long just filled with some of the best wrestling I have ever seen, one of which was a 60 minute broadway that was just spot after spot after spot with no rest holds, just a complete spot fest from the second it started until it ended and you could tell at the end they were both borderline stroke ready. I know Nagayo was on of the wrestlers in it.
I gotta find that tape.........
If you've never seen Manami Toyota vs. Aja Kong - 11/20/94, you'd be interested in it as well:
Just a note, despite the impression I might be leaving, I'm not well versed in Japanese wrestling at all. I'm just forwarding along matches that we watched and I thought were good. And for all the **** and ***** matches that we've watched, one of my absolute favorites is Dustin Rhodes vs. The Blacktop Bully: King of the Road Match - WCW Uncensored ‘95. It's the most ridiculous thing ever.
