Triple H vs Randy Orton @ JD 08 AKA The match that's not really bad but it's the most boring fucking thing you'll ever watch in your life ? .... Yeah you don't lose much by NOT seeing that match. I'll letcha know whether HBK-Y2J holds up though. BUT FOR NOW, HERE'S THIS ;

Best in the North Pole 5 Second Review ; The Road Warriors (life and Death of the Most Popular Tag Team in History

Since this is a five second review , I'll give you some quick hit thoughts about the doc ; pretty decent. No complaints here, as they spend a huge amount of time focusing on LOD PRE-wrestling such as the gym and bouncing and whatnot. For a fitness freak like myself it's fine but for your causal fan it probably sucks. As a WRESTLING doc it's not on par with some of the better features (or even above average), but if you're looking to pass some time away and you need something to watch you should check it out. Animal seems to put himself over alot though, I don't know why I get that vibe from him, but I do for some reason. If I were to slap a quick rating on this I'd give the doc.....

5.75/10

The Road Warriors vs Sting & Lex Luger (Superbrawl 96) : **

The Road Warriors vs The Goddwins (RAW 1997) : * 3/4

As you can see, these are not The Steiner's we're dealing with here in terms of match quality. The match listing is PRETTY bad for a WWE Home Video release, and what's hilarious is that I probably overrated a ton of these matches due to just being finished with the WORST 3 disc match listing in WWE history (DVD that shall and will never be named). This match listing, while BAD, isn't HORRIBLE because of a few reasons ; there are a number of fun Road Warrior squashes here that are entertaining to see because of the horrified looks on the jobbers faces, the matches are all relatively short with none clocking in at more than 15 minutes I believe, and the matches that ARE rateable are usually below average-decentish matches.

We do however get 3 matches you should check out between ***-*** 1/4 , and the show stealer in the Hogan/Tenryu match. AWESOME, AWESOME shit right there and probably the best normal tag LOD match there is honestly. That's the only required viewing from this DVD ; the Japan tag with Hogan and Tenryu. Everything else you can skip, because there isn't anything memorable besides that whatsoever. It's LOD, the HOGAN of tag teams, what should you expect other than formula based matches that aren't that great. This is more or less a showcase of a TON of tag teams from the 80s and 90s (Briscoes, Harts, Nasties, Demolition, Arn & Tully, etc) in potentially each team's worst match ever

On a final note , only BUY this DVD if you're a Road Warriors fan or you don't care about match quality at all and love Hogan/Warrior-ish guys. If you're bored, check out the doc, and you SHOULD check out the Japan tag if you're a fan of tag team wrestling. If you don't like tag team wrestling, the obvious answer would be to stay away from the DVD. The Documentary passes, but the match listing brings this down to a slight fail for me.

4.75/10

PS: The Scaffold Match was the worst idea for anything in professional wrestling history.

First match to stick out was vs Hogan & TENRYU.

Holy crap I'll pay money to own that.

Glad to see you liked the Starrcade '87 match vs Horseman. I'm at ***1/2. Creative finish. Trolled those Chicago fans so hard, haha.

What's weird is that I'm not normally into Japanese Wrestling AT ALL , but I LOVE seeing japanese guys mix it up with the big WWE/WCW stars. The exception to this is of course Sting/Muta, as I'm not the biggest fan of their series at all.... Because Muta SUCKS of course

Muta's finest hour was on Power Hour against ARN. That match was fucking BO$$.

I don't know WHAT the hell is wrong with me today, but I decided to forgo the HBK DVD until maybe tomorrow , in lieu of watching the LOW one disc tonight. WHY I give up the opportunity to watch AWESOME wrestling in order to watch SHITTY wrestling blows my fucking mind, but I love doing it for some reason. It's probably because I'm in the city, and when I'm at home my attention span sucks way too much to watch anything I'm uninterested in. The "You Know What" DVD doesn't count ; it's so bad that it's good that it's bad. WRAP YOUR HEAD AROUND THAT ONE (just didn't wanna say "so bad it's good" because that's almost giving a compliment to the piece of fucking trash). If Savage-DDP wasn't on it it would have gotten .5/10 just because the DOC was MEH.

THREE HOURS OF MEDIOCRE JERRY LAWLER & JUNK YARD DOG MATCHES HERE I COME !

Get into Puro please. It's the best thing that isn't old school southern style rasslin.

What Lawler matches made it? He's been boss his entire career so I can't imagine much of his matches being mediocre.

I need to see that Tenryu/Hogan tag. TENRYU is the great thing from Japan ever. People, technology... everything. He's the pinnacle of the Japanese race and culture.

WHAT FANTASTIC LAWLER MATCHES SHALL I BE WATCHING ? Why only the FINEST Lawler matches around such as :

- his classic 1996 bout vs Marty Gardner
- his show-stealing main event performance with Roddy Piper @ KOTR 94
- Two of his BREATHTAKING PPV matches w/ BRET
- A FANTASTIC Wrestling Challenge match against Owen
- A .... Yeah the joke has worn out. The only interesting match is an 89 AWA tag w/ Jimmy Valiant vs Kerry Von Erich & Michael Hayes... WAIT... They tag teamed ?

This DVD has "YOU KNOW WHAT" type of potential, even for a one disc. I want to see does it get any worse than.... THAT OTHER DVD THAT SHALL NOT BE NAMED.

Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho judgment day 2008

First off the bat this match is storytelling 101, at backlash shawn faked an injured knee to win his match against Batista, and the weeks leading up to this match Jericho called him the biggest actor in sports entertainment history. Until Jericho and shawn team up and shawn still sells that he has a knee injury, in which Jericho finally admits he was wrong only for shawn to super kick him and tell him he's not hurt.

This was such a unique feud as shawn was acting as the heel, and Jericho the babyface however the roles where reversed. This match was still at the time a babyface vs babyface contest. At the start I love how Jericho is still so adamant that shawn has a knee injury so he goes after it, some great counter wrestling here. Shawn gives Jericho a huge slap to the face and hides in the corner seriously how is he not the heel, that's how amazing this feud was. Jericho finally leaves his attack on the leg of shawn and with a desperation move he gets his knees to shawns rib. He then attacks the rib section of Shawn, which makes sense at wm24 shawn destroyed his ribs against flair. Abdominal stretch applied by Jericho, everything attacking the rib area of shawn. Kudos to shawn he really sold the ribs perfectly. Cool spot with shawn on the outside and Jericho attempt his spring board shoulder block, only to get hit with the super kick.

Shawn rolls him back in the ring and tunes up the band, only for Jericho to continually stay down as did shawn at backlash amazing storytelling. Shawn walks over right into the code breaker 1,2..... Kick out wow. Jericho then with hard shots to the ribs of shawn but gets caught in a desperation crossface, but finally reaches the ropes. Jericho goes for a lionsault but shawn blocks, then Jericho counters with the walls but then shawn counters with a roll up for the win.

In 15 minutes they told an unbelievably story, this is one of my favourite matches ever from my 2 favourites superstars of all time. I may be the biggest mark for this match in the world, but I think it's amazing I'm such a sucker for great storytelling. If you haven't seen this match, you don't know what your missing but I recommend you go back and watch the promo before this match so you fully understand how great the story of this match really is.

**** 1/4

Big fan of that JD match between HBK and Jericho. Far better that everything else they did that year imo (a hugely overrated feud and series imo too).
