Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - The Ragin' Climax
We begin the aforementioned ramble with:
Triple H Vs Vince McMahon - Armageddon 1999
This is... fine. Parts are very fun but its your typical big attitude era brawl, only difference is Vince being all crazy and shit throwing salt and uppercutting testicles. Needed trimmed by at least 10 minutes though. The Stephanie turn is done damn well though.
Oddly little to say about this, Vince is fucking mental for being willing to jump out the way of a car, think he misses it by like a fucking inch. Overall fine, watchable fun but overlong and doesn't come near the GOAT Vince matches.
John Cena vs. King Booker vs. Mick Foley vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Randy Orton - Vengeance 2007
You know... I genuinely forgot this match existed until an hour ago when I randomly saw a youtube suggestion. I mean I'm typing this paragraph before I watch the match and its 10 minutes long so I'm not expecting greatness (Or even goodness) but this must be a contender for oddest main event for the last 10 years, right?
BUBBY LASHLEY. I'm aware I watched BUBBY, I'm aware I watched every episode of WWE TV he was on. I genuinely couldn't even tell you what his finisher was right now, all I can distinctly remember is him tipping a car onto Finlay which was awesome because FInlay was involved and therefore I was all tingly and shit.
Anyway so Booker goes out for a massage from Sharmell whilst the 3 faces beat up Orton, Foley does the Cactus clothesline and pretty much destroys his knee (How can you destroy that which is already dead you may ask? Staking it with a cross is one option, colliding into a ring apron is the second).
BUBBY AND CENA FACE OFF, got a better crowd reaction that time Cena and Orton faced off in the Rumble but it was still pretty fucking bad, I really do wonder where Lashley would have gotten to in WWE if Kristal hadn't been fired, the eventual heel run would have been hillarious at least. OK FUCK IT, I was about to write that Bubby is rather dangerous looking in the ring style wise but he just hit a fucking beastly plancha, like the sort of thing HOF packages are made of so all is forgiven for the next 30 seconds. Has a decent spinebuster too.
I hate to say it because you know, favourite ever and all but jesus Foley looks rough in this match, don't know if its thanks to the knee injury from earlier or just general unfitness but he is fucking DONE like a minute into this. Also he did a horrific version of the ol' Foley stair bump, like jesus, he didn't roll over it he just goes straight into it and they don't budge, for a sec he looks like a Looney Tunes cartoon that's ran into a shelf (That makes sense to me..... fuck you).
According to JR Cena's best friend is his right hand, this'd be the point where Cal would make some obvious masturbation joke...........
I got nothing, fuck you; not even 10am yet as I write this. Swear to god JR has mentioned Orton's "handsome features" 5 times in like 8 minutes, was this common or did Pat Paterson take over Gorrila duties?
The match is.... good, surprisingly so, its a piece of quick fluff, everyone gets a moment to shine, the finish is a bit crap though, I can only assume they were running out of time a bit because this should have went 15 or so most likely, still surprisingly good for what it is.
Rambling may continue in a bit, or not... I just caved in and got another Netflix subscription and noticed that Beast Wars was on there so you can all go swivel (If they ever get Reboot on there then OH JESUSSSSSSSSSS)
