Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I loved their brawls. Fans ate them up and they were actually worth seeing compared to the VAST majority of WCW main events from the Hogan Era - demise.

Maybe it's b/c I'm a mark for both Savage & Page.

- HELL YES, Orton vs. Trips last man standing was great. Brilliant story around Hunter's knee and some brutal legwork from Randy. Loved how HHH always had something in the environment to help him get to his feet, whether it was the announce table or the entrance ramp. The ladder spot where the electrical guy gets drilled in the face is fucking AWESOME. Finish was really well done on Trips' part. Great selling for sure. This is a match I could see getting better with every watch. OH and I almost forgot, this is shown in its entirety since it was on that RAW where Trump took over and had no commercials.
I need to watch this again. Remember it being really good and quite comfortably their second best match together after the LMS at No Mercy '07 but I haven't seen it since it happened.

DDP/Savage ****

Great brawl. Savage did a good job putting DDP over and DDP did an awesome job of selling his injuries and pulling the audience in. Had some good drama, an old school big fight.

Its a shame DDP had the best matches of the nWo DVD set lol

It probably was Gold Rush since that followed Backlash. Benoit got ko'ed with a brick by Edge so H was probably targeting it. Been a long time since I've see it.
14/3 is the best of the bunch IMO. Benoit giving Trips 10 Germans = EPIC~!

Gold Rush would have been better if they had got 5 more minutes to go with it but it was still great and Benoit making HHH tap out =

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.
Like Carlito would say: That... that's cool!

And it's automatically a reason to make 2008 > 2012. Just based on the stuff that took place there, 08 seems to be the last good year for WWE to me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Last night I had to take the DVD out and cry in the corner a little bit once I made it to Fall Brawl 1998 and the "War Games" match. I use that term VERY FUCKING LOOSELY. Going to make a second attempt to blow through this DVD now, but I can't complain because even though the DVD is horrible, it's atleast a bunch of coherent material.

My number one pet peeve on WWE DVDs ; incoherent matches that have no overall theme or cause between all of them ala "The Top 50 Finishers DVD" which took me 8 different sittings to get through even though the material wasn't bad....

"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

THAT POP when he wins.
You see this I have to disagree with tbh. This moment was everything to do with Triple H. Jericho could have been anybody, Taka, Rikishi, Kane, whoever. The real reason those fans popped like crazy was because somebody had finally beat HHH for the title. Jericho was over big time and it got a great response because it was him but he really could have been anybody who was over at that time and those fans would have lost their shit regardless. I'm talking in general terms here. Of course if you mark for Jericho then it was everything to do with him but generally speaking, that pop and reaction had way more to do with people hating HHH than loving Jericho/whoever else it could have been who got that spot.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Starbuck is correct. Just look at HHH vs Taka. HHH made him look like a million bucks and the crowd was into the idea that someone could finally beat HHH. Sure, Jericho was over but it was the idea that someone had defeated a SUPER over heel champ right in front of their eyes on live TV.
