Its definitely a more worthy contender for the #1 spot than the beer bath.

Overall Disc Score: 7/10

- Gonna speed through this review cause it took me several nights to get through this disc. It's easily the best though. Women's match has an awful ending. Mysterio/Punk wasn't much of anything. Basic match with a non-finish for build to Over The Limit. REALLY wish they would've put their February match on here that everyone raves about.

- I'm a huge mark for battle royals so I love the inclusion of one on any set. This one featured one of my pet peeves though. For a good 10 minutes nothing happened at all really, then it was time for rapid eliminations. Once Rey eliminated Chavo, it flowed well and got exciting. It was pretty obvious who was winning (hate when they bring that person out first or last) but Rey & Kane put together a really good one-on-one match in the end.

- McIntyre/Hardy was so damn frustrating. Drew dominated the entire match and it struggled to keep my attention. He hit big move after big move, just for another near fall. Then all of a sudden Hardy hits a twist of fate and that's it, after a match then went far too long to give us a finish like that. There was a really nice spot with the steps though.

- Pretty obvious that the July 30th episode was fuckin awesome. First a great match from McIntyre/Christian. Brutal armwork from Drew and good selling from Christian. Then Rey/Swagger. Yeah, that match was all kinds of fun. It's not a *** 1/2 match, really isn't. I'm not even sure if a pinfall was ever attempted, but the match was so entertaining I don't even care. The brawling through the crowd and way out of the arena actually made sense because Swagger wanted to end Rey's career. Memorable spots, memorable finish, fun television for sure.

- Kofi/Ziggler had another really stupid ending, but Kofi's postmatch beatdown was awesome. Rey/Del Rio is significant because it's Del Rio's debut and he won clean with the armbar. Kaval/McIntyre was balls to the wall awesomeness for the time it got. Taker/Punk is the best match on the entire set. Really good, slower main event style match with a good story behind Taker's sluggishness and ring rust in his return from being in a "vegetative" state.

- I FUCKING LOVE DREW MCINTYRE'S THEME MUSIC.

- Everything on this disc in regard to the Taker/Kane feud was fantastic. Kane's promo after he won the World Title from Rey gave me goosebumps. Too bad their matches sucked in the coming months...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall Set Score: 6.5/10

- There just isn't a whole lot of rewatch value on here in my eyes. There's just a small handful of matches I'd put at ***+ and then a lot of average stuff you could see on TV each and every week. There's a couple good segments & promos but not enough to warrant a purchase. It's not bad, but not great either.

Best Matches on the Set

1. The Undertaker vs. CM Punk (September 10, 2010) *** 1/2
2. No DQ: Rey Mysterio vs. Jack Swagger (July 30, 2010) *** 1/2
3. Christian vs. Drew McIntyre (July 30, 2010) *** 1/4
4. Intercontinental Championship - 2/3 Falls: John Morrison (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler (November 20, 2009) ***
5. World Heavyweight Championship: Jack Swagger (c) vs. Edge vs. Chris Jericho (April 16, 2010) ***

Taker/Punk SD 2010- ****
Flair/HHH Raw 2/6/06- ***1/4

Agreed about the Austin beer bath being overrated.

Also, gonna get started on Taker/Brock. I'm off work today, so I may just go through all the matches in one sitting.

Thanks Cal. Already watched and taken some notes for 02, 03 and Taboo Tuesday matches. Will probably watch Survivor Series later on and then the next 2 are just TV matches so they won't be long or anything. Holy fuck though. The similarities between the two of them are frightening so far lol. I mean in the sense that HHH emulates Flair with some of the things he does which I find rather cool. I'll save that for the reviews though

IT'S HIS MENTOR. OF COURSE HE EMULATES HIM

Excited to read your write-up of their series. I need to get cracking on HBK/Taker. Three of the matches are like 30 minutes, though. FUCK.

Was the RR Casket match really only 10 minutes long?!? Wonder if that was planned or they cut it short due to HBK fucking up his back.

They probably wanted to keep it short in order to make sure they got the stuff in with Kane at the end without the show going off the air first. HBK has said that he didn't have any problems with his back after it happened until the next day.

Yeah, I remember it being much longer, too. That's why I was confused.

That's what I thought, too. I remember him saying he didn't think anything was wrong until later. I don't remember A THING about the Ground Zero match. Should make this project fun.
