Thank God for that!

What's sad is that I actually think this would have been a possibility. So if Benoit offed himself, he chose the right time and if he was killed, the killer(s) saved him the embarrassment even if it came at the expense of his legacy! (random: it's interesting to me that "Chris Benoit was murdered" is the top suggestion that comes after I google his name)

But fuck, I think he would have left behind plenty of memorable moments in the HD era had he been around a little longer or preferably, still alive. Those bastards at WWE have done a great job at making him look like his existence was a long time. From the complete lack of mentions to the fact that they went HD in 2008, making the shows feel "refreshed" after being "dirty" by the tragedy surrounding them. When I watch something from 2007 compared to 2008, it doesn't feel like they're just a year apart from each other. 2007 just feels so... old.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I want to see Taker make a bitch tap out at Mania in Jersey. Brock, Punk, or Cena will do.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm starting to think that you traveled back in time just to kill him yourself, because in some alternate universe Benoit taps out to Punk multiple times and Punk goes on to have an 8 year reign as WWE Champion, making Benoit tap out 319 consecutive times.

Benoit couldn't handle DAT MAIN EVENT LOOK





"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

Yep, I have psychic abilities and saw Benoit was under the threat of jobbing to Punk so like the good fan I am, I saved my hero from being embarrassed. I just have to go public about it. Soon I'll be in a WWE arena, interrupting Punk's boring promos and I'll confess what I've done. WWE will have no choice but to acknowledge him or else the same thing happens to them. It doesn't matter if they are CM Punk, Vince McMahon or the random production guy that focuses on the camera angles shown on TV. Nobody's safe from me.


On a different note, is it me or do the WWE absolutely NEVER acknowledge the ABA Undertaker? On their youtube channel, I've only seen a snippet of his JD match with Hogan and on WWE.com, I never see anything about Biker Taker. I'm starting to think if they do Brock/Taker at WM29, they'll pretend that it's the first time ever.

Highly doubt he ever reverts to that gimmick. It fits the Attitude Era (something WWE is clearly far from being) perfectly. He will remain with the classic Deadman gimmick until retirement, I'm sure.

Plus, wasn't Taker the ABA when they feuded 10 years ago? I would think it'd be nice to see Deadman Taker vs BROCK now.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm telling you, it's Rock-Brock II. That had this shit planned a year in advance. Fuck, they probably have the main event for XXX already planned with all of these main event players running around

It's how they talked Rock into coming back for another year. BOX OFFICE RECORDS WITH DA BROCKTAGON

I know, I never said anything about him returning to it. I just mean that they pretty much act like he was never the more human American Badass. I don't see any footage of it on TV, they never have any articles on wwe.com that say anything about the ABA and their youtube channel is almost empty of any Taker footage from 2000-2003.

They didn't even show him in the Lesnar video packages when he had returned, did they? I just remember it being mostly TNA guys (RVD, Jeff Hardy, Hogan, Angle) but I may be mistaken. Plus I've also heard that Vince never wants to hear anyone talk about it backstage.

Never caught on to that. Wonder why that'd be the case.

WWF Raw Is War 01/08/2001 - WWF World Heavyweight Title: Kurt Angle vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin

Awesome fucking match. Both men worked hard and Angle looked like a real world champion for once and it was nice precursor to the epics these two would have through the year. Angle being determined not to be shown up with Suplexes by Austin early on, so he hits Austin with like 2 or 3 of every Suplex he can and yells at Austin about how he can do it better. Was great, the only thing i didn't like was the ending i would of preferred it if Angle got the dirty pin over Austin thanks to Triple Hís run-in. That would have given Angle much-needed credibility and added fuel to the Austin/Triple H feud. But i guess they didn't want Austin to eat a pin. ****
