Ive heard many times that Savage vs Steamboat in Wrestlemania 3 is considered the greatest match of all time. Both were very dedicated to the craft and practiced for months leading to the match.
oh, and the correct answer is Jello
Started off as a NWA fan just because the wrestling was better than WWF in the old days... then I discovered the japanese stuff (all japan/ new japan)...
Then I got into ECW fairly early..... and stayed with them...
Now I do watch TNA, but preferred the older stuff.... and do link Ring of Honour.... I'll still watch the odd WWF PPV, but only the old classics (royal rumble, wrestlemania, Summerslam, and survivor series)
Steamboat v. Flair is the greatest match ever I've heard with Steamboat v. Savage being another highly ranked classic.
Thank you for the American Dragon links.
steamboat v flair and steamboat v savage are classics.... I am sure there is a Danielson vs Punk Roh title match that is an absolute classic out there...
Also some of the early TNA 3'ways... styles/daniels/samoa joe.... and ECW RVD vs Jerry Lynn as well.....
Big fan of WWF in the mid to late 80's. Went to Mania 3 at the dome. Watched NWA/WCW when we got Superstation WTBS on cable.
Stopped watching until the "Monday Night Wars". Loved the old ECW stuff. Remember coming back from the bar one night and stumbling upon it at 3 am and saw one of the Dudley Boys smash a window over some guy. Saw them live at the State Fairgrounds in Detroit.
I am a lifer, so this past tense doesn't apply. But I stick to WWE. I just don't have enough time to demand excellence. #HEEL
Danielson and Punk only had one noteable match in ROH, Ricky Steamboat was a ref, and it wasn't as good as their PPV matches in WWE together.
However, you want to see some classic CM Punk matches and don't mind long ass matches, check out his trilogy against Samoa Joe in ROH.
That is one reason I became an official. Love the sport, and officiating got me back into the sport. I have officiated National Champs all the way down to 5 year olds. Plus is gives me a great idea what club to start my son off in.
They had a 2/3 falls match in FIP too, which was good, not great.
Punk had an irritating habit of trying to do more MOVEZ~! than he could actually do well in matches (see: shining wizard, awful moonsault, a few others). Thankfully, WWE improved him by removing that habit.

The Dudleys were epic heels in ECW.
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
Did you know crime dramas are fake?
Wrestling is just comic books on TV, minus the special effects.
Funny I always pictured the Junkyard Dog wrestler whenever tJYD posted - never looked close enough at the picture.
The one wrestling event I ever went to was at the Lansing Civic Center (1980s) and I think the JYD was there. I remember there was some Russian guy there and he went out to sing the anthem and everyone was booing and throwing stuff. People were seriously pissed off and into this. Quite an experience that ended up more scary than funny.
Before that I remember watching Big Time Wrestling as a little kid before cable.
Georgia Championship. Couldn't wait to get home from church to see Gordon Solie.
I completely understand the more scary than fun thought. Slightly different situation, but when I was 6 or 7 (roughly 1987 or 88), my Dad thought it would be great to take us to a WWF house show in my hometown. Well, being 6 years old, I didn't know it was fake. I didn't realize they were just characters. Bad News Brown was wrestling for the the WWF at the time and he scared the crap out of me just by yelling at the crowd when he was walking around the ring on the floor. Luckily, Tito Santana kicked his ass and I remember being so relieved because I thought Bad News Brown was going to beat up the whole crowd and while I always thought of my Dad as a tough guy, he couldn't take Bad News Brown if he came into the crowd.
Looking back on it, it's ridiculous. But, I think I liked wrestling a lot more back when I didn't know it was just a story line.
And if the good Lord’s willin’,
I’m a keep on chillin’,
refillin’ and flyin’ high
