Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I dont remember him ever actually selling anything. He'd take a finisher, looks staggered for a while but eventually just get right up fine and dandy

And I dont remember any great sell jobs like someone taking his leg apart or an arm injury etc.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Does anybody know what this whole "free download from vudu" thing is that comes with the WM27 DVD?

Edit: Never mind. Pretty cool site. Gonna weigh my options.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Haven't done a review for ages, in fact years probably.


DVD REVIEW
SHAWN MICHAELS: FROM THE VAULT



Disc 1

The Midnight Rockers vs. Buddy Rose and Doug Sommers
AWA Tag Team Championship

The worst match on the set but still a great tag team match. Good to see some of Shawnís earlier work. The ending was disappointing but needed to continue the fued.

Match Rating: ***1/2

Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon
Intercontinental Championship
Ladder Match

Brilliant match. Didnít have enough for me to give it ***** but still one of the best ladder matches ever. On par with their Summerslam rematch.

Match Rating: ****1/2

Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart
WWF Championship
Ironman match

Going into this I wasnít sure what to expect. I hadnít seen it before and a one hour match was going to be different, and I didnít know whether it would keep my interest.

This match turned out to be so much better than I ever expected. Both of these men are brilliant, and to keep an audience entertained over an hour with 0 pinfalls or submissions is amazing. Very close to getting the full *****.

Match Rating: ****3/4


Disc 2

Shawn Michaels vs. Diesel
WWF Championship
No Holds Barred

Good big man vs. Shawn Michaels match. Both Diesel and Shawn Michaels play these rolls brilliantly in this match and while it isnít as good as some of the other matches on this set, still a good fun match to watch.

Match Rating: ****

Shawn Michaels vs. Mankind
WWF Championship
Mind Games

A classic between these two. Brilliantly constructed match and both played their roles perfect.

Match Rating: ****1/2

Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker
WWF Championship
Hell in a Cell

Wow. This is one of the greatest matches of all time, and it deserves it. The first Hell in a Cell match, and the best! The Undertaker starts off by chasing Shawn around, and Shawn has no way to escape. This is done brilliantly and the match only gets better from here. The work on the outside of the cell is great, still telling the story of Michaels trying to escape from The Undertaker. While the ending features the debut of Kane, it doesnít take away from the match. Wasnít sure what to give this one but it just receives the full ***** from me.

Match Rating: *****

Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H
Un-Sanctioned Match

One of my personal favourites. This is the return match of Shawn Michaels after 4 years, and he and Triple H put on a classic. Others might not have this as high, but I believe the storytelling in this match is great and everyone should watch it if they havenít seen it!

Match Rating: ****3/4


Overall this Set is one of the greatest out there. Despite only having 7 matches, all of them are ***1/2 or greater with 5 getting ****1/2 or greater from me. Definitely pick it up if you havenít seen it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

(On the Rock's selling): I like Rock's selling a lot. He could be a little exaggerative and sometimes when in a move I find it hard to take his facial expression seriously but he was defintiely good. Long term selling? I don't know. I don't actually ever recall anyone working over one of his body parts. But yeah, very good seller imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Im talking long term. His bursts were good, very Shawn oversell-esque but my primary concern is the long terms body working selling. Then again, what are the chances that in an attitude era match someone tried to work on a limb?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's likely that HHH worked on his limb while they were in the mid-card but I can't think fo anything. He def. sold long term well as the bloody beaten pulp though. If Austin's pounded him for ten minutes he won't make you forget it, staggering around like a drunken drunk person whose drank too much of his drink. Oh man Drunken Rock. Imagine THAT.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think Benoit in 2000 worked on a Body Part of The Rock, can't renember if it was the leg or the Shoulder or what, it wasn't just a Match, was a Storyline with a PPV blowoff or 2 and i think Benoit was Champion for like a Night until it got reversed.

Just searched it it was Fully Loaded.

For God crushes the wicked

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yea Fully Loaded leading into it Benoit kept attacking Rock's arm with chair shots in the parking lot and hallway etc. I remember that.

on Rock's selling, he isn't the greatest out there but he sure as hell isn't the worst and he has some great matches that people tend to overlook and rank him down there as one of the worst because of it. His match with Lesnar is one of my favorites.
