Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - The Ragin' Climax

I haven't seen the biker chain match(I will soon) but the Unforgiven is pretty good and HIAC is 2002 MOTY and almost 5 stars

Biker Chain match was boring. I understand that it was supposed to be a fight, but that's no excuse for such a sleep-inducing match. I faintly remember a handicap or triple threat match between Taker, Lesnar, and Big Show that was the "tops". It was the one where kept changing the stipulation.

Borrowed the Best PPV Matches of 2013 dvd off my mate. Contemplating watching HHH/Brock from ER.

Said I wouldn't though as it's one of my most infuriating matches. Looking forward to watching Del Rio/Ziggler again though.

And Heyman gives one of the best manager performances I've ever seen, especially considering it's a freaking Cell match and he has no obvious way of impacting the match. Hell, even Heyman bleeds in that one. Blood doesn't make a match great, but when it's combined with the brutality and hard hitting in an already all time great match, it can put it over the top. In this case, seeing blood pouring out of Takers head while Lesnar continues to physically maul him is a visual fans had never ever seen before. Nobody beats up the Deadman, nobody, but Lesnar came in and did the impossible. He took down Taker in a gimmick match that was created specifically for the Phenom.

"Who are you to doubt El Dandy?"



**Special thanks to CHAMPviaDQ for the sig**

21-1: Thank you Taker for 20+ years of busting your ass to entertain us fans. You were truly a one-off, there will never be another even remotely like, the DEADMAN. R.I.P The Streak.

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - The Ragin' Climax

Backlash 1999

Six Man Tag Team Match

The Brood vs The Acolytes and Mideon

Gosh, these themes make me so hard. So this came about when Christian was tortured by the Corporation into giving up the whereabouts of Stephanie, who had been abducted by the Ministry. This made Taker turn the Ministry on Christian, when Gangrel and Edge came to his aid. Crowd get REAL silent as the match starts. Also, Teddy Long is referee Man the silence is this match from the crowd is pretty disconcerting, but I still rather like the match a bit. Random "Mideon Sucks" chant breaks out, which is the first real outburst from this crowd. at the crowd no selling Edge's spear. at them also no-selling the hot tag to Christian. Okay, enough talk about the crowd. The match is okay. Bradshaw and Farooq are usually pretty fun to watch, but I couldn't care less about Mideon. The three man work by the Brood at the end is a bit of fun. Viscera runs down and just runs Christian into the ring apron, leaving him vulnerable for the Clothesline from Hell from Bradshaw. Not much to see here, honestly.

Rock entering the arena backstage, dragging the Smoking Skull belt. Dat disrespect.

Hardcore Title Match

Hardcore Holly vs Al Snow

Actually not looking forward to this at all. First weapon pulled out is a gallon of water Guess we found where R-Truth got his inspiration in 2011. Match should have ended there, tbhunter. Ooh, quite liked Snow's moonsault off the barricade, which he follows up with a return shot with the gallon of water. Pulling out the hockey sticks Holly barely selling the shotsthough TABLES, but Holly gets a shot in with the hockey stick to deter Snow from setting up the table. Cookie sheet shot to the head They fight to the back where Holly pulls out the kitchen sink Man, my interest in this match has fallen to below zero. First pinfall attempt in a while is on top of a car, which Holly is thrown on from the ramp to the TV truck, and Snow drops an elbow for a 2 count. Wish it had ended there, also. Back in the ring, and Holly hits a superplex through the table, which he takes the brunt, and the ref starts counting, which JR says is weird because there's no countout. Ref gets to 9, and Holly gets the arm over, but only for a two countout. They're slowly back up and Snow hits Holly with Head for the win. Glad that's over. ZERO fucks for that.

Backstage camera showing Austin arriving Crowd couldn't care less

Backstage camera showing Taker talking to The Acoltyes/Mideon/Viscera about the eventual arrival of their Higher Power. Ministry Taker

Intercontinental Title Match

Goldust vs The Godfather

I'm not even morbidly curious about this match. Goldust coming out with the Blue Meanie. Oh damn, forgot about BlueDust That's another stupid ass gimmick. Meanie doing Sable's schtick Godfather got the biggest crowd reaction to this point Scratch that - the HO's got the biggest reaction to this point. Damn, one chick has tits halfway to the ground PIMPIN HO'S NATIONWIDE Blue Meanie scoping out the ho's I'm pretty well convinced that Jerry Lawler used to touch himself during every show back then. No way that was a gimmick. Anyways, there's a match now. Godfather gets the upper hand, and Goldie decides to call it a night, but the Blue Meanie reminds him that he can't win the title if he gets counted out. Blue Meanie using his brain? Blue Meanie has a brain? Huh. Meanie hands Goldie a bag of powder, and as he gets ready to use it, Godfather knocks the powder, and ends up blinding Goldie. Meanie is in, trying to help Goldie, but Goldie, who is blinded, mistakes Meanie for Goldust and attacks him and sets him up for Shattered Dreams, which he hits. Godfather hits a kick on Goldust, and Meanie falls out of the corner onto Goldie, which you would think would be a countout, but the match continues. Meanie then accidentally runs into Goldie in the corner - another possble DQ, but Godfather stacks them up in the corner for a splash. He hits the Death Valley Driver for the win. That's over. Ho's dog pile Godfather. The girl with the giant tits was one false step away from showing them to everyone.

Number One Contender Tag Team Match

New Age Outlaw vs Jeff Jarrett and Owen Hart

OUTLAWS Attitude Era Outlaw It's admittedly strange seeing Dogg with hair and not fat, and Billy not looking 50. HOLY FUCK AT DEBRA Road Dogg cuts a promo asking for the puppies. Billy warming up to see them Sad to think that we'd lose Owen just a few months later. Man, Billy's offense off the hot tag is pretty awesome. For a guy that goes 6'5", 240 or something, he was pretty damn agile and threw a really sweet dropkick. so hard at that finish Outlaws get a tag spot countered, and Owen locks in the Sharpshooter on the Dogg, but Gunn counters the Figure Four from Jarrett, sending him out of the ring, then hits the Fameasser while Owen has the Sharpshooter locked on for the 1-2-3. I quite like the match - best of the night so far. Crowd singing the Outlaws theme after the match

Cole interviewing Shane backstage about the main event. Shane promoing better than most people can now. Kevin Kelly interviewing Vince. 21 year old Steph looking so innocent. Boy how things changed.

Boiler Room Brawl

Mankind vs Big Show

Man, this was something to watch. Not that I enjoyed it, but I couldn't turn away. Mankind's bumping is just nuts, and the amount of broken glass all over the place is ridiculous. Foley breaking like 10 pieces of sheet rock over Show's head in sucession He may have gotten a piece of glass stuck in his hand after breaking a glass plate over Show's head, due to the way he was favoring his hand. God almighty at the amount of broken glass in this, and Foley was crawling all over it. Kind of symbolic to see Mick's bloody hand prints on the floor leading up to the door as he escaped. Great effort on Mick's part to make Show look as good as he could.

Michael Cole interviewing Triple H and Chyna. Trips' promo Chyna's was better. Something about a pecking order. Glad he learned how to talk.

Triple H vs X-Pac

Well this is a snoozer. The neck work on X-Pac was okay early, but it got real boring, real fast.

Ken Shamrock vs The Undertaker

Ministry theme So, I don't dislike this as much as Cal seemed to. I actually enjoyed a bit of the match work, and Taker breaking into the half crab was something I've never seen. Shamrock's counter of the Chokeslam into the cross armbreaker was kind of nifty, and the finish with Shamrock seemingly looking for the Tombstone, but Taker reversing into his own Tombstone was cool with me. Better than the previous match by far.

WWF Championship Match

Stone Cold vs The Rock

I love this build. Rock in the Austin feud was just so much better in his promos than in the very previous feud with Foley, where he was all catchphrases and nothing else. The funeral after he threw Austin and the belt off the bridge, "Dearly trailer park trash" Austin running over Rock's Lincoln Continental 1999 when a Lincoln Continental was a GOAT car or something

Hmmm, Rock getting cheered. Wonder if he turned face shortly after this... Austin Austin running down and just throwing the belt over the ring as he runs in Lou Thesz press PISTON FIRE at them taking the set down at the entrance way. Interesting thing that JR says when the set comes down - "And the walls of Jericho come tumbling down". Interesting that he would say this with Jericho debuting just a short number of months later. Don't know if he was foreshadowing or just using a fitting comparison that worked at the moment. Maybe I'm overthinking.

This is just a fun brawl. Rock getting on the camera is spot that gets mentioned the most obviously, but it's so hilarious with Rock turning the camera back on Austin and he's standing there with the two middle fingers and Rock goes "OH SHIT" and takes the stunner while holding the camera. Shane being a good heel here, not counting the full three after he mistakingly hit Rock with the belt and show Austin the bird. JR going nuts "THREE! THREE DAMN IT!"

Dat ending though "WHERE TO, STEPHANIE?"

As fun as this is, I find the Backlash 2000 main event to be far superior. Average show on the whole, with the number one contender tag match, Shamrock/Taker, and the main event to be the only things really worth watching.

I gotta be honest, I enjoyed the match up until the point where Taker decided to take an enormous crap on Lesnar's entire hard work in the match. Take a guess what I'm talking about. It really felt like someone pushed "RESET" and a new match emerged. Have a mental block against that.
