Love, love, LOVE it as Mark & Matt have some ridiculous chemistry that might be some of the craziest/underrated that I've ever seen.
We need more Henry House Show matches in here STAT.
I found a couple other Henry house show footage that I shove on my youtube Watch Later. The worst thing ever is when you get somebody taping the entrances of a match that you really, really want to see.

Everything I quoted was about Henry. Let the absolute lack of surprise shine through, people.
I'm making sure to watch Trips/Orton from No Mercy 2007. Not even sure when I saw that last.
Anyways, watched some Triple H/Rock matches for my project, and each match featured different versions of the two guys.
Triple H/Rock for the IC title on Thursday Raw Thursday when Triple H was the Conneticut Blueblood character, and Rocky Maivia was still a fresh character, having debuted just three months ago. Side note: This was also the night of Shawn's "Lost My Smile" promo where he dropped the title. This match was actually pretty good. Triple H was good at playing this character, and it a midcard gimmick and it wouldn't have taken him further than the IC title, but I liked how he embraced it. Good heel work from him.
Triple H/Rock from Raw 1998 just before King of the Ring. Nothing to see here, but I think this was my favorite Triple H face run. DX was edgy, and he was good at playing the face. The match ended with a DX/Nation brawl and every referee trying to break it up. Side note:
Finally, Triple H/Rock from Rebellion 1999. Triple H was a full fledged heel, and was defending the WWF title. Rock had become a full on face of course earlier in the year, and the two faced off in a cage match in Birmingham, England. This was a pretty entertaining match, which of course ended in a typical Attitude Era-clusterfuck. Rock escaped the cage after Triple H had knocked out Earl Hebner, so both guys are outside and Rock cuts a probably about the "jabroni-roody-poo-referee" and busted open Triple H with a chair and said it wasn't blood but "monkey piss running down his face". The two get back in the ring, and as Rock is almost out, British Bulldog comes down and puts him back in, then Shane McMahon tries to attack the Bulldog, but he gets taken out, THEN Patterson and Brisco run in and try to take on the Bulldog, THEN Chyna runs in and slams the door on Rock's face after he takes down Bulldog. Everyone's down, and as Rock tries to track down Triple H, Bulldog pulls him back in and the Game escapes with the title. CLUSTERFUCK.
