watched the best Falls Count anywhere DVD (on NetFlix). Pretty good; some matches were way too long. I always love finding out about veterans (today) who started way back. I didn't know Al Snow wrestled. I didn't know Teddy Long was a manager back in 1990! I forgot how awesome Booker T. was in the ring. My favorite match was the street fight between Vince and Shane MacMahon.
I've started my project of watching every episode of WWE Superstars and I'm a couple months in. I'd just like to point out that Evan Bourne vs. Paul Burchill from 4/30/09 is a hidden gem. Great great match. ***1/2
U.S. Title Match (10/28/89):Brian Pillman vs Lex Luger (c) **** (from Brian Pillman's Loose Cannon DVD)
Pillman is awesome. His offense is explosive and his agility was really on display here and the crowd was eating it up. Luger did a good job of selling frustration and somewhat keeping up with the quicker opponent. Luger is actually good here bumping for Pillman's offense and generally making Brian look credible. DAT springboard clothesline thooooooough....awesome put Punk's to shame that's for sure.
Luger's offense is rather rudimentary, as expected, but it looks really effective. His clotheslines actually look devastating and when he's on offense he looks dominant. Pillman also did a great job bumping for Luger and the crowd took attention and gave Luger some really good reactions at times. Luger did botch an atomic drop but that was a minor mishap, no points taken away from his performance.
Decent finish to the match as well. This is actually a very, very good match. I can't believe I'm speaking highly of a Lex Luger match (Jesus Christ) but it is very good. Both guys put in some great work. If you've never seen it or haven't see it in a long time, its really enjoyable.
New Topic: what are some of Lex Luger's best matches and who do you think he had his best match with?
