Jeff Hardy vs. Umaga - I - 12/8/06 Tribute to the Troops (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANMp64VyoOQ)

So they are saying Umaga is undefeated at this point and he has an upcoming title shot, so I don't expect Hardy to pull out a win here. Jeff is the IC champ. They start off with Hardy trying to be agile but he eats a shoulder block. Jeff evades a couple of clotheslines and gets a forearm in. Jeff goes for a sunset flip but he can't get Umaga down. Umaga tries to butt drop him, but Hardy moves and drop kicks him. Another drop kick sending Umaga to the floor. Another drop kick, and he goes for a suicide dive. Umaga catches him and slams him into the turnbuckle. Hardy eats the steel steps and they go back to the ring. Big strike. Umaga hits a leg drop. Hardy gets kicked around a bit before a nerve hold is applied. Hardy starts to comeback but he gets smashed with a Samoan drop. Umaga is going up top. I don't recall ever seeing him do this before. Umaga goes for a splash, but Hardy moves. Hardy hits several strikes but can't take him off his feet until connecting with a Whisper in the Wind. Umaga throws him off during a cover attempt. Umaga reverse the Twist of fate. He goes for the Samoan Spike, but Hardy reverses to a Twist of Fate. Hardy goes up top for a swanton but Umaga gets his knees up. Umaga pummels Hardy before he hits a stink face. Signals for a Samoan spike and connects. And that's all she wrote.

About a 6 minute match with a few good exchanges. The first couple minutes were action packed, but Umaga's offense really slowed it down. These guys seem to have good chemistry, and I think the series will get better. A few more minutes and so more nearfalls and this could've been in the *** territory. **1/2
The troops match was their first? Interesting place to plant seeds for a potential on/off 2 year feud.

Nice little review there. It's along the lines of how my format will be. Keep it up. I'll look forward to the rest.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Don't get me wrong ; I like all three matches. It's just that I see HIAC getting **** all the time and I'm like WTFOMGLOLZ .... Just doesn't seem deserving of the RIDICULOUS praise it gets from some people.

Then again, I'm the same person who has Ryback-Punk @ HIAC rated as a *** and surprisingly pretty good match. Honestly believe it's Ryback's ceiling for the next..... Forever, but I liked the simple storytelling. The length just didn't bother it for me at all, as I'm a big fan of the Punk-Taker match from Breaking Point that's probably the shortest main event in modern WWE PPV history.

Anyways where was I..... DX vs Legacy.... HIAC is like a *** to me too.... I LIKE the match, but it's not an overly amazing match. BP I have at *** 1/4 .... The shock of HOW Legacy beats DX in this one still blows my mind as at the end of the match Ted and Cody looked like future world champions... Ted will probably never wrestle on PPV again , while Cody is toiling in the tag division, GOOD CHOICES DX!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I agree. It's not so much the rating that leaves me perplexed. It's when some claim it to be "really good". Don't see it. Granted I did come to take some bit of appreciation for when I watched it about a month ago. Still nothing noteworthy. **1/4 is my snowflake assessment. It's a bit above average. My first watch I loathed the bout. Part of that was due to me not being informed about the way it was worked. So when I was watching it I was like "WTF is going on?" Poorly worked bout, imo.

Razor Ramon vs HBK (c) - MSG house show 6/12/93

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xeg...t#.UMgsYeTqmSp

The event starts off with a HBK promo, which I can barely hear. But it seems to get heat. Out comes Razor Ramon to a GREAT POP. HBK back on the mic with "I'm going to show you the real bad guy" with Razor throwing his pick in the eye of HBK. Razor works HBK on the inside by whipping HBK on the apron and kicking him up 3 times. He kicks him right out to the outside. HBK tries to do a sneak attack on Razor, but Razor is to quick for him. The action comes back to the inside, they tie up. HBK starts working him into the corner, it then comes to the middle as HBK tries to toss Razor, its then reversed into a CHOKESLAM to a big pop from the crowd. 1...2...near fall! Razor then quickly applies the abdominal stretch. HBK reverses, turns it into a lariot, which Razor reverses into a fallaway slam....again 1..2...near fall! Fast paced action! Razor starts to work the back of HBK by throwing him into each corner. Top rope clothesline by HBK onto Razor. Razor is dazed and falls to the outside. The action falls to the outside but not for long. Back inside and HBK with continious kicks to Razor's chest. The next few minutes have HBK applying a grapple hold with Razor layed out on a horizontal base...HBK using leverage by putting his legs on the ropes. Razor fighting out of it, only for HBK to apply more leverage. He fights it up to a vertical bases and throws HBK, both men are down. Razor then applies his SPINNING PUNCH COMBO to knock HBK down. Razor then hits the Razor's edge....1.....2....AND DIESEL BREAKS THE PIN by pulling HBK to the outside. HBK and diesel leave, and Razor Ramon wins by countout. Razor grabs the microphone and requests HBK to come back to the ring. HBK and diesel are on the outside and Razor spits on HBK, which sends HBK into a hissy fit. But thats all she wrote, HBK and Diesel leave...Razor Ramon left in the ring with a roar from the crowd.

A good solid house-show match. ** 3/4 - ***

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I'm watching the Top 100 Raw Moments. Nice to see the staredown between Undertaker and HHH there... but at #100 behind Santino's fucking TEA PARTY? I'll never understand how WWE puts lists together .

#98 is Evolution turning on Orton, and of course they build to it by showing us Randy winning the belt. From nobody . I swear its like WWE go out of their way to include something Benoit had a big part in so they can NOT show him.

Damn, this thing is 3 and a half hours long. Then there are BR extras too. I don't know the full list or anything so I have no idea what's coming up. Hope its some GOOD shit so I can sit through the whole thing. And if Austin coming out on a Zamboni or Beer Truck is #1 I'm gonna fucking murder someone.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

About to start my NAITCH vs HAITCH series in a minute. Got all the matches apart from the Raw 06 one so I'm going to have to pass on that unless somebody else can find it for me. I looked on youtube and dailymotion and couldn't get it. I have the other 5 though. I'm aiming to watch them all today and hopefully have my reviews ready to go tomorrow or even later tonight if I'm lucky. I won't have the time otherwise lol.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

iPhones about to go dead on the way home, but I feel I gotta mention the HBK-KANE match on raw (Shawn's last raw match) as probably my favorite five minute match ever.... They manage to put together an efficient story, a tribute to Benoit and Angle , and storyline continuation with the undertaker. The perfect match for the DVD , and one of my favorite short matches ever. Not big on the STARZ scale, but an awesome, awesome contest.
