Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Someone should do Flair/Steamboat. I have 15 matches between the two before they even get to 1989 . Over 20 matches in total .

Shame a lot of the early ones are JIP though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Someone should also do the Rockers/Brainbusters series in 1989. I recently saw the series and would highly recommend them to anyone curious about the pinnacle of WWF tag team wrestling. Arn and Tully are sensational heels with an array of comedy spots and nefarious tactics to draw heat, and the Rockers feature Michaels at arguably the peak of his career as a worker and Jannetty proving he's a damn good talent in his own right.

Sting/Vader is another series that should be done. Its on Youtube/Dailymotion so easily accessible and is arguably one of the most consistent and great David vs Goliath series of matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So everyone is doing a series of matches are they? No idea what I'll do. When it comes to WWE I've pretty much seen what needs to be seen. WCW has some stuff probably, but nothing I can imagine I'd really WANT to see (aka CW stuff lol).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I like this idea of doing review on entire series. But KOK/#PHG, I really don't know if I'm up for Bryan/Punk, though. Maybe if it was WWE only but not their Indy stuff since I have a hard time watching that kind of wrestling where it feels so 'local'.

Otherwise, I'm willing to review the entire HHH/Orton series (singles only) or if anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate. Just don't try to make my life a living hell.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'll do Malenko/Guerrero while I have a lot of time today...they will be reviewed in the order I watch them, not in the order of when they happened.

-ECW TV 2/3 falls match (their last match in ECW) ****. This match has practically no strikes, very few punches and kicks...if any at all. I dislike the draw finish but it was a spectacular match. Plenty of mat work from both guys. Hold and counter-hold, a chess match of sorts on the ground. Good atmosphere, very receptive and knowledgeable of the maneuvers.
.

-Hostile City Showdown ***1/2: Guerrero's agility and mat ability combined is an awesome sight. I spilled my cereal at Malenko pulling out a flying head scissor...I'd never seen him do anything like that before. The match was fairly even until Malenko started working the knee and the pace slowed down considerably when Malenko took over, his offense is more methodical and submission. A match where both guys got to set and reset the pace and the other guy was able to keep up. Some pretty good nearfalls with Malenko's Northern Lights Suplex bridge (which was awesome) and Guerrero's Frog Splash.

Guerrero's offense is crowd pleasing in contrast to the workman style of Malenko, his ability to mix up high flying with the mat style. Wasn't a fan of the 30 minute draw but a great TV match. Well worked, but they could have sped the pace up a bit, I suppose its part of Malenko's style to slow the match a lot but within a time limit that can be troublesome. Good match though.
.
Will review another ECW match and a few (or one) of their WCW matches later on.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I was thinking about either a Benoit/HHH series or Rey/Eddie series - Is there a website that shows all of the matches over a year or whatever and all I have to do is ctrl+f or something? Would make mine, and everybody elses', job a lot easier, not just for this holiday season project but for as long as we're wrestling fans.

I'll do an HBK series, undecided on which one at the moment. Suggestions accepted

HOORAY 4 WUNDERFUL IDEAZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Seriously, anything that gravitates my attention away from these bad DVDs onto something good is fucking awesome.

Seriously considering Jericho-Benoit. From the Super J cup Semi-Finals to WCW Saturday Night to Nitro to Thunder to Raw to Smackdown to PPV these guys had EIGHTEEN singles matches that were aired. STRONGLY considering this...

EDIT : Doing Hogan-Savage from the 80s and 90s. Should get REALLY bad once we head to WCW territory, but I feel that Savage just got the absolute best out of Hogan in the ring for some reason





"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
