Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Rey Mysterio vs JBL - ***
- A short match between the two with a controversial finish when JBL gets his shoulder up at the same time as ref's hand hits the mat for count #3. Would have been a lot better given more time, but I expect that in No Mercy.
Undertaker vs Randy Orton - ****
- These two are just so awesome to watch in a match. Don't know what it is about Orton in 05-06, but I simply love watching his matches. He's sooooooo good. And Taker does his job just as well. The part with the fake Taker inside the casket was pretty funny but I thought Orton looked a bit too weak with the clean loss despite all the shenanigans with the ref bump and Bob's interference.
These Smackdown episodes are so awesome to watch! With all these great TV matches, I'm going to do a top 50 best matches of 05 list when I'm finished with the whole year. If it wasn't for Eddie's death and the Cena prejudice, this year would probably be a lot more fondly remembered.
