Edge/Jeff was alright, I'm not a fan of their chemistry for some reason, they don't seem to mesh too well together and everything seems a bit disjointed. It was was it was, nothing great, a couple good spots, and some decent action. ** range. Have to watch the Rumble tomorrow, im off to bed.
I'm re-watching the 2006 Royal Rumble match, totally marked out when Tatanka came out. I couldn't peel my eyes away from my screen, first time i've been able to see that about the WWE in about 3 years. Triple H coming out first was also so damn genius.

Re-watched Cena/Orton from SummerSlam a month or so ago and thought it was really great, which is weird becuse last year I thought it was boring and Orton was crap in it. Might have to give Savage/Warrior a fourth (FOURTH) shot now.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Here's a review I did a while back for the Survivor Series match:

http://www.wrestlingforum.com/blogs/...es-review.html

The psychology in that match was excellent. It's a Top 5 match of 2007 for me.

Btw, watch the entire SS07 ppv minus Khali v. Hornswoggle. It was a solid show.

HBK/Orton from S. Series ****1/4

Brilliant match-up, HBK's submissions and game plan were amazing really.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd still take Undertaker's individual performances these last three years over anyone else at WrestleMania ever. Legendary and awe-inspiring are just a couple words I would use to describe them.

With that said, Michaels probably has the best and most extensive catalogue of classic/great matches than anyone in WWE history.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker Mania matches since WM23:

23: ****1/2
24: ****1/4
25: *****
26: ****1/2
27: ***1/2

Michaels at Mania:

10: ****3/4
12: ****
14: ****
19: ****3/4
20: ****1/2
21: ****1/2
22: **1/2
23: ****1/4
24: ***1/2
25: *****
26: ****1/2

So while yes, Shawn overall is Mr. Wrestlemania since Taker's first several Mania matches were terrible, and Shawn has been putting on excellent/classic matches at Mania for a long while, but over the last few years from where I've been sitting, Taker has out-doing Shawn punch-for-punch as far as individual performances and matches go. Not to say Shawn has been bad, cause he's been amazing as always, but Taker has consistently had classic matches up until this year, where I felt his match with HHH was only very good, but even then Taker's selling and performance in that match was phenomenal, so it's nothing on him.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well, finished Rumble 09 today and it was an overall solid show. Matt/Swagger was good, Cena/JBL was surprisingly good, Edge/Jeff was ok, and the Rumble itself was pretty damn good.

I got my No Way Out 09, Backlash 09, and Judgment Day 09 dvds in today. Still waiting on Armageddon 08 to come in. I started to watch No Way Out, just made it through the Smackdown Chamber match, which was solid, and really picked up towards the end. Gonna finish the show tomorrow.

I just bought The Bash 09, Night Of Champions 09, Breaking Point 09, and Hell In A Cell 09. I only lack Survivor Series and TLC for my 09 collection. Will buy those next week.
