Oh and btw, prepare to take on the hate from YTubers when you get to guys like Rock and Booker
You should also do a Top 5 Reasons I Love... series, though it is more fun to shit on than praise
Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.
Daniel Bryan | Bad News Barrett | Dean Ambrose | Damien Sandow | Sami Zayn | Kevin Owens | Pentagon, Jr. | Austin Aries | Kota Ibushi | Kenny Omega | William Regal | Bayley | Renee Young | YOSHIHIKO - The greatest dummy wrestler of all the times | Anything DDT tbh, especially the Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship matches
I don't plan on just doing top 5 reasons I hate videos. I'll be mixing it up. Doing one on my DVD collection this week (was hoping today but nope, no time to record lol). I'm only really putting vids on youtube as a way to advertise my site and my other videos on blip .
Oh man, I didn't even THINK of a Rock video. Though I do have a Rock hat that my dad found on the bus... oh the possibilities!!!
I enjoyed Rock/Cena (WM28) a lot. If Meltzer gave it a good rating, it's deserved.
I guess that explains why I realized that it sucks on the same night it happened.
Oh come on dude, I'm not a blind Punk mark, I happen to enjoy him now because he is one of the few bright spots on a ridiculously thin roster. I feel the same way about Ziggler, Sheamus, etc. My true favorites are all either dead (Benoit and Eddie) retired (Foley, Bret Hart, Vader) or only wrestle a few times a year (Brock, Rey, Taker). I'm not stupid, I know if Punk was on the roster in 2004 he wouldn't be above the lower mid card. But this isn't 2004, I have to have someone that interests me, so Punk, Bryan, Henry, Ziggler and Cesaro are the guys I pull for these days. I like Cena and heel Orton too, but rooting for them almost feels like being a Patriots/Miami Heat/Yankees fan, unless you've been rooting for them since day one.
On another topic, what's everyone's favorite Mr. Perfect match that doesn't involve Bret Hart or Flair on Loser Leaves Raw?
Just watched Vince/Stephanie from No Mercy 2003, actually a fun match never really thought about that but Vince knows how to work the crowd in his matches really good. Now I want to watch Vince/Gowen, Vince/Punk and Vince/Shane.
Does it have to be Perfect via the gimmick or can it be that excellent match vs Nick Bockwinkel that went 60 minutes? b/c that's basically my answer either way.
Damnit, I should have included that one too. I own that match on the Perfect set and it's pretty amazing. I wonder how many of today's wrestling fans can appreciate a match like that, where there are tons of real submissions and actual "wrestling", not Sports Entertainment. The final minutes in that Showboat match are as intense as any you will find in wrestling, Hennig busted open trying to hold on while Bock the wily vet is trying to teach the young Buck a lesson. I'm not one of those people that think one or the other is better, I like 80s stuff as much as I do modern matches, a good match is a good match no matter the era.
I'm just trying to find some new Mr. Perfect stuff to watch,
Edit at Vince vs Punk. Love when Vince is standing over the belt with a kendo stick daring Punk to come in. Aside from Vaders come back squash of Slater, that was probably my second biggest mark out moment of 2012.
