So with the past couple of years, lets say NXT coming in there own and NJPW getting more noticed and accsessable, the amount of great-to-amazing matches every year is getting more and more it seems. Before the internet and the network, tape trading was the way to see Flair/Bret title change classic, or that Liger/Pillman home video match you had in your original “Best WCW matches of the 90's” piece. And everyone remembers the Flair/Steamboats and Bret/Owen classics. Personally UT/Shawn WM25, the No Mercy 02 tag, WM 17 Multi classics, i remember all of them so vividly and re-watch them all the time. Now…. theres so much i'm starting to forget instant classics all together. Holy shit i forgot how great Rollins & Ambrose vs. Ziggler & Mcintyre is. Gargano/Ciampa at takeover New orleans is still on my all time list with surrounding story, but i feel like its going to be some time before i watch the 2 re-matches(cinematic match never again). Same with gargano/Cole trilogy. Koto Ibushi had phenomoal matches in the CWC and if they happened 10-15 years ago, i think we'd be talking about them every year. I am not complaining about the amount of outstanding matches we have at our fingertips now. But it has gone from randomly seeing the diamond in the rough in a sucky/ok card (some IYH shows come to mind), to now it takes a lot to stand out in a certain month, week, show. Is it possible for over-saturation? The Stadium Stampede will live on forever but Jungle Boy & MJF had a helluva match that may get lost in the shuffle. Keep up the good work and Stay safe to you and your family.
It's definitely a case of great matches getting lost in the shuffle. Makes it really overwhelming at times.
