Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Nice review man. I'm wondering what you guys think is the best Superstar Collection and Doc on DVD. I'm guessing Doc is Rise and Fall of ECW is mostly everyones right? I'm not sure about Superstar Collections though, I just got got two of the top ones I think in Bret Hart's and Ric Flair's first one. Looking forward to it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So random, but I've just noticed something...

Before - Edge & Christian
After - Christian & Chris Jericho
Then - Edge & Chris Jericho

Mind = Blown.

No doubt in my mind if they knew about Edge's imminent retirement it would've been Christian.

Superstar? Jake Roberts, hands down. His documentary is unreal. Other than that Rise & Fall of ECW is the king of WWE documentaries. I like Bret's, Roddy's and Ricky Steamboat's documentaries too.

Would of loved that.

I also wish we could of seen one more Edge/Christian feud before Edge retired. Apparently I've heard the idea was pitched to creative on many occasions but it was turned down. Sad. Most likely Vince holding down Christian again.

Truth be told I've seen a lot of WWF/E feuds in their entirety so I'll leave it someone else to maybe recommend something that may slip my mind. Hardy/Edge sounds like something I could do, since I adore the Summerslam war and haven't seen the Cage match for a good year and a bit. Can't remember much about their street fight on Raw and the Ladder match which ended the feud. Any other suggestions for feuds?

Can't remember much at all about Punk/Cena 8/22. NOC and Sheamus/Show are definitely the two best matches since Punk/Bryan in May. NOC is a really great take on the MITB match, with Punk now playing the well scouted and methodical champion who has a counter for everything Cena throws at him but grows increasingly frustrated with as Cena refuses to lie down. Some people had an issue with the amount of nearfalls, but truth be told its not that much different to how they paced the nearfalls in the MITB match (save for one spot where Cena does perhaps get up to early to hit a desperation move). Show/Sheamus is just evidence of how a remarkably simple formula when executed to perfection can lead to a great match.

Flair/Steamboat is a truly magical series. COTC is probably the best match as a whole, but something about the atmosphere and character dynamic in the Chi Town match makes me adore it. I also think it deserves praise for being their shortest match from the famed '89 series and yet still being in contention for their best. Can't forget about the House Show matches in Landover and Philly either.

Flair/Windham really can be considered a superior series, though I wouldn't begrudge anyone for preferring Flair/Steamboat. You still get a beautiful character contrast which dominates the sequences and transitions and makes for a constant story which adds meaning and depth to the match as a whole. Plus 1987 Barry Windham might be the most naturally talented wrestler I've ever seen.

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

I kinda wish I had wrestling fan friends. I sort of have one who watches, but he's Stupid(Tom). And I haven't seen him in about 4 months since he got his new girlfriend. And he's like the most casual fan in terms of what he likes compared to the ubersmark that I am (best way to describe how different we are lol). My best friend watched it for a while in 00-02, though I kinda think he lost interest in 01 and just kept watching a little longer for my sake (AAWWWWWWW ain't he nice?). He was a huge fan of Austin/Angle from SS 01 . Practically the only match he remembers . Having someone as passionate about wrestling as me as a real life friend would be awesome. Especially since I make videos, as I have many ideas for shows that would involve a second person who is also a fan .
I don't have the drive to search through 20 pages of discussion today so I picked out he ones that hinted towards the project created last night about watching a series of singles matches between two workers.

Has anything been set in stone or nah? b/c I'm down for all of this to get going. (I was more focused on WWF/WWE only as the topic began, but I wouldn't object to anyone wanting to do the projects with feuds & matches from NWA, WCW, etc. Especially if the said matches trail into a different companies territory a la Hogan vs Savage)

*on the subject of Extreme Rules 2010*

~ I loved Jericho/Edge & the finish to Cena/Batista. Two strong matches to end the night. **** each.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

In case any of you haven't seen it yet, I would highly recommend the "Stone Cold Steve Austin: The Bottom Line on the Most Popular Superstar of All-Time" DVD. Watched it not too long ago, really great watch!

And speaking of documentaries, the "CM Punk: Best in the World" DVD is definitely going on my Christmas list, definitely. Very much looking forward to that one!

I'm pretty set on Punk vs Cena. I know I can slam through those fast. I need a back up one if I make time for it. I could do the 1989 matches between Rockers vs Brainbusters that Segunda Caida dropped. I own about 3 of their matches. I'm sure I could find the rest online. Don't think they had THAT many matches either. Enough to do a project like this at least.

SmackDown: The Best of 2009-2010 - Disc One

The Biggest 8-Man Tag In SmackDown History
DX, John Cena, & The Undertaker vs. CM Punk, Randy Orton, & Legacy - ** 1/2
October 2

World Heavyweight Championship - Submission Match
The Undertaker (c) vs. CM Punk - ** 1/2
October 23

Intercontinental Championship - 2 Out Of 3 Falls
John Morrison (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler - ***
November 20

Women's Title #1 Contender's Match
Mickie James vs. Beth Phoenix vs. Natalya - * 3/4
December 4

World Heavyweight Championship
The Undertaker (c) vs. Rey Mysterio - **
December 25

#1 Contender's Steel Cage Match
Batista vs. Rey Mysterio - **
January 22


Overall Disc Score: 6/10

- Clearly in late '09 and the early part of 2010, nothing very exciting was happening on SD. 8 man tag wasn't anything special until the last few minutes when it became fun. As was the entire feud, Taker/Punk was a letdown. The whole match was based around the "conspirators" that screwed Taker at Breaking Point. Nothing special.

- Morrison/Ziggler was easily match of the disc, but it could've been sooooo much more. They kept it relatively short for a 2/3 falls match. Ziggler looked like a million bucks (as he seemingly always does) and Morrison sold his ribs pretty well. Would've liked to see him win with something other than Starship Pain though. That would've played off the rib injury much better. This has one of the best looking Zig Zags I may have ever seen.

- The last two matches did nothing for me. You can only do the same Rey vs. Bigger Guy formula so much before it gets old. Rey gets dominated, hits a couple springboard moves, then gets kicked in the face. It's certainly entertaining to an extent but then it's just time to move on. Oh and as a disclaimer, I've seen the Taker/Rey match from the Rumble. Liked that one, not these.

- The segments included on here are Rock's "return" to Smackdown from October 2. It's just a promo via satellite. Somewhat entertaining but he buries Ziggler (for no reason) & Punk of course. Then Punk's SES Intervention with Serena Deeb. No one in the crowd cared about that at all. Let's hope the next two discs are improvements. I want DEM DERE GEMS!
