Mitsuharu Misawa & Jun Akiyama vs (Dr. Death) Steve Williams & Johnny Ace
Wrestling Observer 5 Star Match and 1996 Match of the Year.
John Laurinaitis has quite a few gems in his wrestling career. Unfortunately we all know him as the Interim General Manager of Raw…blah blah blah. I’m glad that the WWE has been pointing out the fact that he used to be a wrestler before sucking up to the McMahons and firing and hiring wrestlers. However, he’s not quite the failure that they try to make him seem like.
How many five star matches does Triple H have? Could Triple H have ever wrestled Mitsuharu Misawa? At least Johnny Ace can say that he has two 5 star matches and that he has competed with Japan’s greatest wrestlers.
Aside from that, I wish that the Undertaker would just stay away from the ring this year. We don’t need another Taker/Triple H match this year. Sure it may have told a story, but it was really fucking boring. This will probably be his last match but it shouldn’t be with Triple H. His last match needs to be with Kane. The two are at the end of their careers and a match between the two would just make the most sense.
Wrestlemania 28 will be great with Cena/Rock, the return of MITB, and of course and hopefully, Punk and Jericho. We don’t need a match with Triple H and Taker to bore everyone and hog the spotlight from the once glorious mid card and tag team division (don’t even get me started on the Divas either). With all complaints aside, WWE is doing really well lately. All we need is for Kharma and Beth Phoenix to bring wrestling back to the Divas division, a good opponent for Jack Swagger’s US title, the same for Cody Rhodes’ IC title, and for the tag team division to regain some steam. It may take time, but things seem to be headed the right direction. Anyways, let’s hope that 2012 is another great year for some rasslin’.
