Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Re-watching Royal Rumble 2009 right now. Gotta say it's a solid event, nothing spectacular, but solid. Swagger/Matt was pretty good, Swagger's work on Hardy's left arm was great, the pace was smooth, and the crowd was into it, *** 1/4. Skipped diva match. JBL/Cena was SURPRISINGLY pretty good, not near as much of a bore fest as their other matches, the added mystique of Michaels on the outside was played really well, the finish was too be expected, but the action was pretty good, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it, *** 1/4 - *** 1/2. 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 agree very solid event the 09 Rumble was and one of my favs of the last few years. The undercard had nothing that exciting match wise though i agree Cena/JBL was a good match and did the job of advancing the JBL/HBK program. Hard Edge was decent nothing special but i was expecting the return of Christan and not a Matt Hardy heel turn. I also skipped the diva match. The rumble it's self was fun a lot of big name guys though the ring was full for a majority of the match which is different to see. Overall a decent event which did what it did to advance the road to Mania XXV.

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.


Much gratitude to

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.


Much gratitude to
