    my favorite have been
    Flair vs Steamboat Chi-town Rumble,
    Macho Man vs Hogan Wrestlemania 5
    Macho Man vs Steamboat Wrestlemania 3

    I've seen Dynamite Kid vs Tiger Mask on YouTube from a 1982 event in Japan and it's on par with some of the best shyt in the modern era :whew:
    (check that out)

    What other GOAT 80s matches are there?

    Those Windham vs Flair matches might be my fav Flair matches. Barry was sublime in his prime.

    :ohhh::takedat::whoo::obama: co-fkin-sign on ALLLLL these.

    There's also a Fantastics/Midnight match that's probably a lil' harder to find, they went for almost the whole hour on NWA WorldWide one time, I was only 8 and I knew that was some special shyt goin' on.

    Also, just about any Bulldogs/Hart Foundation match you look up was dope work for its time.

    Please keep these going. I'm having a good time reminiscing. This is my era right here! I loved every second of these.

    Any of the good NWA WCW stuff was my favorite. I like WWF but The Midnight Express, Fantastics, Horsemen, Road Warriors, etc.. days were the best. I loved them. I'm having watched wrestling in so long, i'm going to try to remember my favorite ones.
