Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Good stuff, like I said I doubt anyone would watch Masters/Mcintyre, Christian/Swagger and Christian/Mcintyre and come out thinking any match was below 'good', but Masters/Mcintyre especially for me would be the least likely to depend on just how much the selling and workover mattered. Mcintyre is really awesome as well at selling frustration, cockyness and fear throughout the match to reflect him being outclassed and then controlling the match, he also does this beautiful nip up after a drop kick and has THE PERFECT cocky smirk to taunt the audience.
BTW in amongst the Punk/Mysterio feud from 2010, there's an excellent Mysterio/Gallows match from Superstars in March before Wrestlemania 26. Gallows was formerly Festus in case you're unaware, and he's a really terrific big man worker who's got some brilliant punches and offence but is also incredibly agile in bumping and working a more frantic pace with someone like Mysterio. And when you take into account how good Mysterio is at working with lethargic big men you can imagine what he'll do with a more athetically capable big man like Gallows. Pretty sure Andy watched it last year after having it recommended to him by sterling for ages and came out very impressed, I'd go through his blog to try and find if he talked about it there but that would take a while and I'm meant to be watching a few matches tonight before bed for a Best Matches Of The Decade poll I'm doing.
