That's actually on the Top 50 Superstars dvd. It's not that great honestly, both Bret & Flair have gone on record saying their matches against each other weren't anything special. Think I gave it ** 3/4.

Whaaaaaat? I usually don't get those DVDs I stick to wrestler specific joints. I did cope Wrestling's Biggest Stars of the 80s & 90s though. I may let some more time pass and let the price go down more. I figured the reason it wasn't shown on DVD was the quality was probably bad but I still feel like I'm missing wrestling history by not having seen it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So... just wanna ask (not sure if it was discussed the last couple of days), but what did everyone think of the US Title Fatal Four Way on Raw between Barrett, Kofi, Truth, and Cesaro? I personally loved it and would probably go in the ***-***1/2 range. I need to re-watch it though. Cesaro was a beast in the match, Kofi was Kofi and usually entertaining to watch in the ring. Barrett was better than he usually is and kept up with the better in-ring workers and Truth, though I'm not a fan, did a fine job as well.

To think, all it took was Teddy Long's twin brother switching the match from a tag to a fatal four way for it to happen, and had he not been there we would've probably gotten a forgettable tag.

Speaking of which, it feels like there have been more tag matches on Raw as of late. This week on Raw I counted what would've been three had Barrett/Cesaro vs. Kofi/Truth taken place. Maybe I'm just thinking too much about it. <_<

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I wouldn't mind owning it. I questioned why it wasn't on Bret's original set. Even as an extra.

Survivor Series is iffy. Punk's win, Rhodes ruling the elimination match, & IC match + Ryder pop are the only good parts.

Dolph Ziggler vs John Morrison ~ ***
Beth/Eve ~ DUD
Team Orton vs Team Barrett ~ ***
Mark Henry vs Big Show ~ 1/2*
CM Punk vs Alberto Del Rio ~ ***
John Cena & The Rock vs Mike Mizanin & R-Truth ~ *1/2

Cyber Sunday is pretty choice. Didn't care much for Jericho vs Batista, although Game vs Hardy had another good match. Undertaker vs Show ruled. Hardy vs Bourne as a blast. I enjoyed Morrison & Miz vs Cryme Tyme too. Only crap worthy mention was Santino/Honky Tonk Man.

Only seen about half of Backlash 2008. It's ok. You'll probably enjoy Shawn vs Batista & Undertaker vs Edge.

Never seen Vengeance 2011 except for the wildly entertaining Last Man Standing match. I have it here with me atm. Been meaning to watch it myself. Heard it's actually really good. Pardon the Punk/Triple H vs Miz/Truth match. Seen polarizing opinions on that. Most seem to lean towards it being bad.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Better late than never, appreciate the reply. I'll probably drop SSeries from the list and pick up the other 3 at some point. Backlash is a show I've wanted for far too long and keep putting it off. 4-way & HBK/Tista look really promising. Vengeance just looks ridiculously consistent and I've only seen Henry/Show from it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Survivor Series is worth is for Henry-Show and Punk-Del Rio alone

If you're a Rock fan then I definitely suggest copping that one for sure. Vengeance may not exactly be high on the ol' STARZ , but it's an up and down FUN PPV with a really great quadruple main event of sorts (Punk/Trips Tag , Henry/Show, Orton/Rhodes, Cena/Del Rio) with all of them ***-*** 1/2 . 2011 was a pretty fucking consistent year, felt like every match was ** 1/2+ to be honest.

I need more 2008 PPVs myself. Backlash included. That year wasn't my favorite, yet the PPVs always seemed to be strong or consistent. It was perplexing. In all the right areas at least.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2008 is probably my least favorite year in wrestling history. Mainly because I thought both Trips and Punk weren't up to standards the entire year. The way they fucked Punk out of the belt which essentially led to Orton's big heel character which basically led to HHH-Orton really pissed me off.

Punk being fucked over in vain of one of the worst Wrestlemania main events coming from my all-time favorite wrestler in history ?

Not Cool.

Can't remember anything from Backlash '08 except for the three big matches (4 way, Michaels/Batista and Edge/Taker). All three are good.
