Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So, after much searching, I finally found Taker/Lesnar Hell in a Cell. Excited and can't wait to watch it, but at the same time I'm way too tired to watch it now. Gonna watch it tomorrow night after work, write up the review, and then Saturday I'll watch the final two Taker/Lesnar matches (MSG and NM 03) and get the review up by late Saturday and if not that, then Sunday at some point.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Review of the HBK-HHH feud was actually pretty good. Some of those matches I haven't seen in years though but I liked the 3 stages, LMS and my personal favorite the SS02 matches. I thinking as far as story line is concerned SS02 was their best match. As HBK was on his comeback in a match where H could break the rules and do whatever he wanted, so it made him even more of an underdog. I greatly disliked the TT contest because to me it seemed really pointless and the decision was inevitable. DAT HIAC though, is 50 minutes of chaos. I literally have only seen it twice and I own the DVD.
.

The review sort of put the feud in perspective and didn't really blow anything out of proportion. One of the problems I had with the series is that you can tell both guys egos were in those matches. They used as much time as they could get (unnecessarily), they prolonged the feud (to trade wins and draws), and they were kind of well, pretentious as you put it. They were trying to make EPICS, and in some cases ended up with really good nonsensical brawls. I like those brawls lol.

.
HBK did so many ridiculous spots in that feud trying to increase the quality of those matches... god bless his heart, as my mama would say. They should have wrestled more traditional matches (standard) and built up to the gimmicks as it would have told a better story long term. Especially considering H lost the first match to a traditional wrestling hold, but then again he looked strong in defeat and HBK looked great in winning even if it did come off "flukey". Perhaps they were unsure if he could perform without the crutch of hardcore rules yet because it was his comeback. He got a crutch at Survivor Series that year as well and shit got crucial after that. I don't think H lost another decision to Shawn after Armageddon, hell he was even pinning him in Elimination Chamber matches.

I'll always remember it as the dominant feud on RAW for 2 years. It lead to probably no 5 star classics but some really good slugfests between two of the best ever.

Foley vs Game Street Fight =

I bet BITNP will be a tad askew if he found out I'm watching Puro instead of Punk vs Cena V

**1/4 is too high for the tribute to the Troops match.

Quick mention is to check out New Japan Pro Wrestling, aka the WWE of Japan in terms of popularity. They're having a stellar year with tons of must see matches.

Head over to the Puro thread (non-spoilers one would be best) and ask for some recs. I'll give you some as will plenty of others who are very knowledgeable on the product & different promotions.

Stellar match. One of my favorites of the year. Top 3 for Puro, easily. (btw, watch that entire event. It's the best show of the year. Bar none.)

I'll pimp it out more when you head over the the Puro thread.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Enjoyed the HHH/HBK review. Great work. Don't know if I just passed over this or not, but Shawn's leg was legit hurt for the TT match. Pretty great effort on his behalf, and made H's offense all the more realistic. Excited to get started on my project. We need to chronicle these so they don't get lost in the deluge of posts this thread amasses daily.
