, I'm takin this project on somewhat. Gonna watch everything I basically have available to me that's on your list and give my thoughts. Surprisingly really excited about it. But shit man, can you slow down? Give me some time between posts. haha
#100 - WWE Championship
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. John Cena (Backlash 2003)
How bout that cheap heat for Cena? They're in his fucking home state and he comes out in a Yankees jersey. Hilarious, bet we never see that again. Love how the fans went from "Yankees suck!" & "Cena sucks!" then 10 minutes later "Let's go Cena!"
Really good performance from the young Cena, loved the story with Lesnar's head wound. The fans were pretty weird throughout, didn't seem to care too much about the match. Everything flowed well until the last couple minutes, couple weird mishaps in timing and the finish came off a bit flat, BUT, everything before that was great. Good nearfall for Cena too. I can accept its placement on the list. *** 1/2
# 98 - WWF Championship - Last Man Standing
Mankind (c) vs. The Rock (In Your House: St. Valentine's Day Massacre)
"Look at my competition, look at him. It looks like a monkey came down here, took a crap, and out came Mick Foley."
It has been a long long time since I had this much fun watching a match. So many moments where I legit LOLed, especially when Cole yelled "NO! NO! NO! NO!" after Rock backdropped Foley off the announce table. He's so damn concerned with Mankind's well being I guess. It's the attitude era, so it's a bunch of brawling but I'll be damned if it isn't great. Rock's legwork was smart and brutal, especially when he dropped the steps on him. Fuck that had to hurt. I'd probably have this just a tad higher on my list based on entertainment value alone. So much fun. *** 3/4
