Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Only 2004 HHH match I remember without having to really think about it is HHH vs. Eugene, and it's mainly because I feel it's Hunter's career heel performance in a match (and it was a great match itself).
For HHH imo:
2006- Decent (Very good first half and bad second half with DX)
2011- Meh (Not a lot of substance to work with, but the Taker match on the low-side of great, the Punk match was good but nothing more, the tag match with Punk was forgettable and the match with Nash was terrible)
2012- M... e... h (again, not a lot to work with. Only two matches to go off of, and while the HIAC with Taker was awesome, the match with Lesnar was very underwhelming and while technically a good match, nothing I'd write home about).
The last "classic" (which I put as a match ****1/2+) HHH produced in my eyes was in 2005 with Batista in HIAC.
As far as years I'd put above his 2000 (in ring wise in no order): 2001 Austin, 2004 Benoit, 2005 HBK, 2007 and 2008 Undertaker, and maybe 2012 Punk... though it's only a maybe now due to the last few PPV matches being underwhelming and bringing his overall year wrestling-wise down. Maybe 2007 Cena as well... though I'm not as quick to jump on that.
And since Paulheymanguy posted a list of em, here's my ratings for those HHH matches in 04-06:
RR 04 vs HBK : ***1/4
WM XX vs HBK vs Benoit : ****1/2
BL 04 vs HBK vs Benoit : ****1/4
