If you can assist with dates I'll happily watch the series. I remember loving the Booker/Goldust team and it'll be good to see Goldust back when in 02 considering how good he looked in 2009 and 2010. Think I recall you loving one of their PPV matches, so guessing that might be the MOTYC?
Speaking of an overlooked tag team series, I'd recommend the Eddie/Tajiri vs WGTT series from 2003 to anyone. They have 3 really great TV matches, with 5/22 being incredible. A lot of the feud is built on Team Angle wanting to be champions by the time Angle returns to Smackdown from his injury, so the feud runs from May-July and culminates the week before Angle returns IIRC. Its fabulous. The Judgement Day Ladder match is probably the weakest match in the series, but I could totally see someone a bit more appreciative towards tag team ladder matches really digging it.
Please do. Its a brilliant series of matches and the ones I watched from 89 were all on youtube (and I'd be shocked if they're not up on Dailymotion either). Pinnacle of WWF/E tag team wrestling. That being said I'd love if someone decided to do an in depth review of a few more Rockers matches. The Powers of Pain and Orient Express Royal Rumble 1991 matches jumping out immediately.
The PPV match from those teams was No Mercy 2002. Armageddon 2002 could also count. That one was a four way elimination that had a bulk of the match down to a standard tag team affair between Jericho/Christian & Booker/Goldust. It was lost of on me that they worked more matches except for those two.
Looked it up and Rockers/Brainbusters have 6 bouts:
Saturday Night's Main Event 2/16/89 (aired 3/11/89)
Saturday Night's Main Event 10/31/89 (aired 11/25/89)
Asterisk implies the ones I own. Favorited two from youtube already. I'm doing this. Like right now even. I just have to find that first one, which I think I did via youtube atm. It appears to be a non-match that transitioned into a brawl. So I wonder if I should even count it. Plus, there seems to be a match from the Boston Garden with the same date as the March MSG match I listed. That leaves me to wonder if the location was wrong via the site I used and I own a completely different rematch from MSG. It ends in DQ. I need to find it.
Oh, and speaking of other Rockers matches. Am I the only guy who thinks this match is loads of fun?
The Rockers. The only team that I can name that gives Midnight Express a run for their money as my favorite tag team ever. Arn & Tully are DAMN close themselves.
You wouldn't be laughing if you had to sit through that garbage
Savage is one of my all time favorites , and to watch him compete in such a horrible match really just fucking tore my heart it. Atleast when Lesnar or Trips wrestles in a shitty match, it's HIGHLY entertaining (besides Survivor Series 2008 of course).
Since I love introducing a new subject to this thread every 10 minutes, who was your favorite wrestler from every single era ? I'm going to break it down into six eras ; Pre-Hogan , Hogan , New Generation, Attitude Era, Ruthless Aggression Era, and PG Era. When I say "favorite from that era" it means they were predominantly popular during that era. If they became a star in the attitude era but stayed around until the ruthless aggression era, they are still an attitude era star.
Pre-Hogan : "Superstar" Billy Graham (LOVE this guy honestly, despite his complete insanity now)
Hogan : "Macho Man" Randy Savage
New Generation : Bret "Hitman" Hart
Attitude Era : "The Game" Triple H
Ruthless Aggression Era : BROCK LESNAR
PG Era : CM Punk
Pre-Hogan : BOB FUCKING BACKLAND
Hogan : Jake Roberts
New Generation : THE UNDERTAKER
Attitude Era : THE UNDERTAKER
Ruthless Aggression Era : 4 Way Tie: THE UNDERTAKER, Benoit, Guerrero, Lesnar
PG Era : CM Punk
BOB really grew on me since I started coming to these forums. If I take ANYTHING away from being on here instead of spending time with my loved ones, or studying.. Or doing anything else... It'll be that I finally got a taste in classic wrestling (when I say classic, I mean PRE-Hogan). Fair Trade, right ?
Just watched an interview with BROCK talking about The Undertaker from a few years ago. Yeah, there's some legit heat there, and I doubt Taker wants to get in the ring with probably the only guy who can legit KILL him if he wanted to. We're getting Punk/Taker and I think at this point that might be the best scenario, only if Punk keeps the title at the Rumble. Brock SHOULD wrestle Taker at Mania, and maybe he will because of their mutual respect on an entertainment level, but my bet's on Brock-Rock and Punk-Taker as the main draws to Mania, with Cena being kind of in the background due to him probably main eventing XXX and the fact that he's been in high profile matches for the past 8 years at Mania. Perhaps Cena gets thrown in with Brock-Rock.
I doubt Undertaker wouldn't want to get in the ring with Lesnar because he's an MMA guy who could "legit kill him" if he wanted to . Even a guy like Lesnar who isn't exactly passionate about the business would have far too much respect for a guy like Undertaker in the ring to try anything. Would seriously if they do end up facing each other, but I'm definitely thinking Punk is the guy Undertaker is going with this. As for heat between the two, not surprising that its there as Undertaker was one of THE guys to really make Lesnar (Rock dropping the belt was the other main one), and then Lesnar just up and left after 2 years.
And lets not forget there is apparently some heat between Undertaker and Punk going back to 09 (based around clothes if the dirtsheets are to be believed . IMO its probably down to Punk's attitude as he's well known for being a bit of a prick lol).
