Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Undertaker vs Shamrock = One of the biggest disappointments I ever saw.

I was insanely hyped for it too.

Anyone else enjoying Smackdown recently? I haven't been watching Raw but Smackdown has been really fun the last month or two.

Last week's Smackdown rocked. First one I enjoyed in a very long time.

I might get shot for it, but RAW is a lot better nowadays too. Last few weeks have been

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Only thing that was disappointing about it (Taker/Shamrock) for me was the crowd was dead. Besides that, loved the actual action, leg work by Shamrock and selling by Taker.

I'm watching you...

I haven't really been able to catch Raw. My roommates like wrestling but we usually watch footbal on Mondays.

Yep. Those fans were swerved big time. Expecting a brawl or plenty of action in the form of wrestling moves. What they got was very mixed martial arts level. Which doesn't surprise me or anyone who knows about Undertaker's love for the sport.

I thought the work they brought out was very dull. The crowd didn't do that for me. I've seen good matches with crap crowds before. So I know it was what they did in the match that completely turned me off. I marked during the start of it. Then it really dragged following. Remember the finish being abrupt too.

Got DVR back home. Have a few Raws saved on it but I'm low on space because I save quite a few movies. I also have something like 40 Seinfelds saved.

I usually just end up reading the results now but once MNF season ends I'll probably get back into it full time, especially if Punk is back then.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched Angle/Taker from NWO 2006 for the first time in a year or so. I give it ****1/4. Good match. They both worked on eachothers leg in the beginning, which is fine, only for it go nowhere. I'm okay with that in Iron Man matches, since there is so much time to fill, but not in a regular match like this. Also was pretty surprised how dead the crowd was for the majority of the match. Only time they got loud was when they broke the announce table, and the finish sequence. Outside of that, pretty dead crowd. This was 2006, though, and it was a rather dull year for WWE. Anyways, still a good solid match. But I thought I remembered it being better. Oh well. ****1/4

Been watching alot of WWE stuff, so I changed it up alittle bit and put in the CM Punk, Summer of Punk DVD and watched the opening match, which was Punk winning the title vs Austin Aries on 6/18/05. GREAT match. They both worked their fucking ass off in this one and it showed. The crowd was on Punk's side in a huge way. Mid-way through the match, the heat picked up big time for Aries. Booing every little move he got off, from big moves to freakin' punches. I absolutely loved this match. Of course, Punk won the title and his awesome promo afterwards making fun of the fans for him fooling them was great and kicked off the "Summer of Punk." Highly recommended. ****1/2

God, I love wrestling. Today is 12/7 and keeping up with my "15 years ago today.." kick I've been on this year (being 1997, best year in wrestling IMO), I'll be watching HBK/Shamrock later tonight at D-Generation-X PPV, which was 15 years ago tonight. Not a great one by any stretch, but decent, and was Owen's first TV appearance since the Screwjob. Watching that one later tonight, might make a small review of it later.

Note: Tried to watch Smackdown, but it's so freaking brutal and kid-ish, with it's piped in noise, I decided to watch some other stuff. Wrestling on DVD/Blu Ray is so much better than 2012

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Go buy the Seinfeld's on DVD and problem solved.

But, I'm gonna say give RAW another chance. It's hitting a fun stride again. I mean it's far from perfect or anything, although actually worth entertainment upon viewing. Lately they seem to have cut down on the segments and focused on more matches. Not all being squashes over a 3 hour span.

The segments seems to start the show and have one in hour #2 and that's it. Plus The Shield is right now.
