2. Voters strongly chose top matches.

I. THE ROLE OF BONUS POINTS
As evidenced in the two previous sets bonus points played a very small effect. Only 23 matches (15%) had different rankings when you order by average rank versus ranking by total points and they only moved one rank in either direction. This was the same percentage that moved in the Other Japan Men's 80s balloting. The top 5 and bottom 5 were not affected whatsoever.

II. STRONG OPINIONS
The statistic Span represents the difference between the highest and lowest rankings for each match. The average span for the list was a startlingly high 133 places. Spread across all ballots, 61% of the matches were ranked in the top ten by at least one voter. Between all the voters, over 41% of all matches were ranked in the top five by at least one voter.

The top slots did have more consensus and less deviation than lower ranked matches. The matches in the top twenty slots had little amount of deviation compared to the rest of the list: an average standard deviation of 26.1 for top twenty, 23.1 for top ten. The average standard deviation for the entire list was 33.9 places.

LOWEST STANDARD DEVIATIONS (i.e. voters rankings were clustered closest)
#2. Dick Murdoch vs. Barry Windham (7/11/87) [BITUSA-13] stdev=15.8
#1. Ted DiBiase vs. Hacksaw Duggan (No DQ, Loser Leaves Town, Coal Miner's Glove on a Poll, Tuxedo, Cage match ) (3/22/85) [BR-14] stdev=17.2
#3. Ted DiBiase vs. Ric Flair (11/6/85) [BW-8] stdev=18.8
#7. Ted DiBiase vs. Jim Duggan (No DQ) (3/8/85) [BR-13] stdev=20.6
#150. Adrian Street vs. Terry Taylor (Loser Leaves Town) (12/7/84) [BR-4] stdev=24.8

So, voters agreed that the matches at the top of the list were really great. They also agreed that Street/Taylor was not a great match compared to the rest of these.

The Murdoch/Windham match is interesting because it was ranked below the DiBiase/Duggan uber-stip match on 73% of the ballots. However, it has a much lower standard deviation than the DiBiase/Duggan match. While people had some varying opinions on the #1 match, (Butch Reed/Murdoch BW-1 took some of the #1 vote), most voters had Murdoch/Windham near the top of their ballot. The Murdoch/Windham match is in the top 50 on all but two ballots - only the DiBiase/Duggan match comes close (also on 75 ballots). People liked both matches a lot - but the DiBiase/Duggan match was #1 on 35 ballots compared to Murdoch/Windham as #1 only on 9 ballots.

HIGHEST STANDARD DEVIATIONS (i.e. greatest amount of divergent rankings among voters)
73. Dirty White Boys vs. Terry Daniels & Bill Dundee (5/11/85) [RNRIK-6] stdev = 48.1
57. The Fantastics & Terry Taylor vs. The Sheepherders & Jack Victory (Barbed Wire Cage Match) (5/25/86) [TB-13] stdev=45.5
102. Midnight Express vs. Bill Dundee & Porkchop Cash (4/6/84) [PTB-18] stdev=44.2
41. Midnight Express vs. Bill Watts & Stagger Lee (4/22/84) [PTB-19] stdev=42.8
100. The Fantastics vs. Dutch Mantell & Bill Dundee (10/4/85) [BW-2] stdev=42.3

Each of these matches received votes all across the board from the top 20 to the bottom 5. On average, 37% of the voters put them in the top 50, 27% of voters put them in the middle 50, and 39% of the voters put them in the bottom 50. The Barbed Wire Cage match was particularly split with 50% of voters ranking the match in the top 50 including 5% voting the match in the top 10 and 21% voting the match in the top 20.
As always, I submit that it would be a very interesting read to hear several commentators review these matches which high standard of deviations to explain what they liked/disliked about them so much. Obviously, different people found different things to laud and abhor in these same encounters!

RANKING THE WRESTLERS

There are 86 different wrestlers spread over the 150 matches. Six tag teams only appeared as a unit on the set (Rock N Roll Express, Fantastics, Midnight Express, Dirty White Boys, Sheepherders and Bruise Brothers) so they were treated as a single entity. I felt to compare wrestlers, it was only fair to group them into tiers by the number of matches they had, and then compare them on an equal basis of comparing the same number of matches for each wrestler in each tier. I calculated lengthy set of BEST OF... tables. For instance, the BEST OF THREE table lists all wrestlers that have three or more matches, and takes the average ranking of each wrestler's best three matches. Each wrestler is given a rank based on how their average ranks for that BEST OF list.

The wrestlers were grouped into several tiers by number of matches appearing on the set. The tiers are as follows:
Many (more than 10 matches) = 14 wrestlers
Several (between 5 and 10 matches) = 11 wrestlers
Some (3 or 4 matches) = 15 wrestlers
Couple (2 matches) = 16 wrestlers
One (one match on the set) = 24 wrestlers
Here are the results of my analysis.

Acknowledgements & Credits

I have done the best I can with the data and attempted to keep all the information correct, credible and consistent. Anyone finding mistakes or inconsistencies is encouraged to email me so that I can correct this webpage.

Process: After all available footage was watched, 150 matches were selected by a nominating committee. A set of DVDs was then sent to voters. After watching all the matches, each voter would send their ballots to a unique mailbox. I would check that the ballot was valid (150 unique matches, all given a unique rank) and enter it into my spreadsheet. If there was a problem, I would contact the voter and in all cases I was able to get a clarification.

I would like to especially thank my wife Alissa, Phil & DEAN and the rest of the DVDVR staff (especially goodhelmet and everyone else who worked so hard on collecting & distributing this project), my cohorts at Indeed Wrestling Weekly (Ray Rhodes, TC Watts, Biff Cheddarhead), all the voters and BK.

Be sure to check my write-up for DVDVR's BEST OF THE 1980s WWF Voting Results and DVDVR's BEST OF THE 1980s Other Japan Men's Voting Results.

Also, you can listen to two Indeed Wrestling Weekly shows recorded with DVDVR Playerz Phil Schneider (90 minutes) & DEAN (40 minutes) discussing these results.
