Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

About Cell matches, there is no way anybody could state that Foley/'Taker is better than Hunter/Foley in the Cell. It's just not happening. I like Foley/'Taker a lot, if you're interesting. It's a great spectacle but as a match, it's not much.

Technically it's certainly not, but it's definitely wider known match, even if just for the big match, and just feels like a much more important match that defined an era. It's a very brutal match, but technically speaking it's not a great match. It's everything about the match though that makes it as great and legendary as it is.

Still though, I do have Foley/HHH sitting right above it (as you can see). I didn't think on my last watch though Foley/HHH was a great match technically either, though it certainly was better than Taker/Foley. It was a good technical, pretty brutal match.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker/Foley HIAC ****1/2

At that time i have never seen anything close to this match..extremely shocking.
It had such a huge impact you can't deny it and this is the kind of stuff i like to see as a wrestling fan.



J.R:"Everybody claims to be an icon and claims to be something special,and maybe they were in their day
None will Ever surpass the Undertaker in my view"
Kurt Angle:"He is our leader, and I consider Undertaker the best ever"
Shawn Michaels:"Wrestling against Undertaker was the best professional experience of my life."
Triple H:"He is The Greatest Legend in the history of this business"
Michael Cole:"The biggest Smackdown and WWE superstar of all time,the legendary Undertaker".
Mark Henry:"it's hard not to put The Undertaker in the same breath as Hogan and Rock because not only has he served more years as them, but collectively, I'm sure he's sold out and made more money than all of them."

Foley/HHH Hell in a Cell was borderline terrible. It was great while they were brawling inside the Cell, but once they moved outside - the things fell apart. It was a poor, obvious and terrible attempt (and a cheap knock-off) on copying Taker/Mankind.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Technically better doesn't always mean the match is better or that people will hold it in higher regard than another match. If you asked me I'd probably say Benoit/RVD from Summerslam 02 is "technically" a better match than Rock/Hogan from that same year but to me the latter is the better match overall.

Yet to watch Kim/Kong matches from TNA though. They get some huge love from just about everyone.
I haven't seen it since it happened but I remember really liking the Trish/Lita match that main evented Raw the one where Lita nearly broke her neck. The Trish/Victoria matches were pretty good too. I think the Kong/Kim matches are probably the best recent women's matches on national tv all 3 of the original series are fantastic and well worth going out of your way to see if you're remotely a fan of women's wrestling. Outside of WWE and TNA Sara Del Rey vs Ayako Hamada from Shimmer Volume 28 is probably the best US women's match I have seen.

Best North American women's match I've seen would be something from the Gail Kim/Awesome Kong series in TNA.

Just rewatched it thought it was great. **** plus.
One of the best Cell matches. Probably second best behind HBK/Taker for me.

-- The match I was most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. Fantastic storytelling from two consummate in-ring pros picking up right where they left off last year. The start was slow and while it wasn't all that exciting it had its purpose. Taker means business and he's not going to let Hunter play the game on his terms like he did last year. Had my fingers crossed for a blade job but Taker busting Trips open hard way was more badass. Nice callbacks to Wrestlemania 27 with the spinebuster on the steps and the Hell's Gate. Once Shawn's role as referee becomes pivotal it really kicks off and from there to the finish it's WWE drama and storytelling at its finest. They were never going to be able to come up with a false finish as compelling as HHH's Tombstone last year but damn the super kick into the Pedigree had me going. The finishing stretch is incredibly well done and to my mind just about the perfect end to the HBK/Taker/HHH Mania story arc. The main criticism I've heard for this (and their match last year) is that it's mainly chair shots and finishers. Yeah it is, but when you tell a story as well as these guys did and get me truly invested in what's happening in the ring it really doesn't matter. Another complaint is it didn't need to be HiaC because they barely used the Cell. My response to that is who fucking cares? Didn't bother me one bit. Epic stuff, just like last year.

****1/4

You got a link for this? Thought I had seen all of the HHH/Flair matches but I don't have any recollection of one from '06.

I remember Lita getting her tits out to distract HHH in one of the HHH/Cena/Edge handicap matches. That was awesome.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

What does everyone think of 'The Twisted Disturbed Life of Kane'? I watched disc 1 yesterday and disc 2 today and so far it is an ok set with some fun brawls but not that great actual wrestling. I got it for like £7 so decent price for what you get.
