@ The Best of Nitro Vol. 2

I have a very strange feeling that come February, I'm going to be completely trashing another WWE-Produced WCW DVD. What ones did they actually get RIGHT? I mean, The Rise and Fall of WCW had a pretty great match listing (FLAIR-STEAMBOAT ) , but FUCK the documentary was just MEH. Starrcade had some matches that were just "WTF" but overall it's a pretty awesome set. WWE han't really mastered the art of a WCW based release yet IMO , and it seems like it's only getting worse and worse.

EDIT : Khali-Taker is a strange match for me. When it came out, there were reports saying that the match was HEAVILY, HEAVILY Edited. It's up there with Khali's other "Good" matches (Taker,Trips,Cena), but the blatant use of editing technology kind of got me saying ehhh.....

So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Don't think I've ever seen that match. The thought of a 4 star Khali match blows my mind.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

LMS is Khali's best match by a wide margin. Big fan of it. Don't think there was much editing at all despite what the dirt sheets said. I think only the ending was edited but mainly for different camera angles and shit. Was originally supposed to happen at SS but they changed it to SD so they COULD edit it if need be. Undertaker even made Khali bleed for real with a chair shot that was a little on the stiff side because he had to overcompensate for the fact Khali sucks and couldn't take moves and shots like everyone else lol.

WWE + WCW = WTF. They "won" the war, and now every chance they get they shit all over them lol. Was watching the new episode of SilverVision TV (just a random web show that Steve, a guy that works for them, does every so often), and he was pimping the NWO set as a top 5 set of the year. He acknowledged the fact the documentary is short and not as good as it could be... but used the MATCHES as the main reason to pick the set up . I made sure to comment on how shit it is .

Please bear in mind that I have a bias for these type of matches, so if it's nothing more than a ***1/2 match to you then you know why lol.

Yeah, I'd probably go ***3/4. Don't know why I went **** but shit I was impressed. It's within that range.

But like I said, I love me a damn good fight. Just a good old fashioned brawl and these two brought it. You throw in a couple, meaningful high impact spots and you got me sold. I'm just big on storytelling and to me the match told an amazing story.

But didn't Cena also have a LMS with Khali? Between the two, which is better? I've never seen the Cena one.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

BURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRN IN HEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLL STEEEVEEE!

I'm going to find out where that motherfucker lives and put my 30-06 to his fucking dome. HOW DARE SOMEBODY PROMOTE THAT AWFUL DVD. Top five DVD of the year ?!?!?!?! WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE ? This guy should be held hostage by a bunch of Islamic Fundamentalists for saying such a stupid, STUPID thing. Makes me ashamed to be a human being !

....Anyways... Undertaker's Deadliest Matches... Am I the only one who likes this ? A ton of fun, I'm pretty sure I sat through it like 3 times, which is INSANE for a 3-Disc Set. Some really good matches on there, and the first disc is pretty shitty but insanely FUN FUN FUN. That's the Undertaker I fucking love, taking shitty guys and making fun matches out of them.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My review of it from way back when:

The Undertaker Vs The Great Khali - Last Man Standing - Smackdown August 18th 2006

Lol, remember when this was supposed to happen at SummerSlam? Then WWE realised that Khali + Live PPV = Disaster .

Khali had destroyed The Undertaker at Judgment Day, and this was 'Taker's chance at revenge. Khali had been built up as the old Unstoppable Giant/Monster, so it was Undertaker's job to slay the untalented shit.

Undertaker's biggest chance of winning this was to use his quickness to avoid Khali's offence, take the bigger man off his feet, then beat the living fuck out of him. Undertaker is able to do this at the beginning of the match, and when he has Khali down, he locks in the triangle choke! Smart work as usual from the Dead Man.

Unfortunately for The Undertaker though, Davari, Khali's manager, gets involved and distracts The Undertaker long enough to let Khali recover. They end up fighting on the SD stage at the top of the ramp, and 'Taker gets launched off the top of the stage through the suspiciously placed tables... . Khali thinks this one is over, and it almost is, but the resilience of the Dead Man allows him to get back up at 9, but he is still pretty beat up. Khali doesn't look as awful as usual in this match, probably because The Undertaker knows how to take the offence of useless big men; it was all he did for the first 5 years of his career in WWF after all lol.

Liked the spot with Undertaker being tied up in the ropes, and Khali landing a couple of his big chops, which were sold as death back then, and was the move that put Undertaker away at JD. Everyone thinks this one is over, but AGAIN The Undertaker is up at 9! Put not like before when he got up at 9 and was still hurt, no, this time he sat up and was pissed off to fuck and Khali was going to motherfucking pay. Until Khali reverses Undertaker into the steel steps. Unfortunately for Khali, that just pissed Undertaker off even more, and those steel steps end up being the downfall of the Great Khali.

Shot to the head, followed by a couple of chair shots to the back of the head while Khali's head was laid on the steps! Khali is busted open, and it happened the hard way. I remember reading reports back when this happened and how pissed off Khali was with 'Taker for legit smashing his head in with the chair because "the first shot didn't look real enough". That's Undertaker for ya lol.

Anyway, a couple more chair shots to the head, and then a HUGE chokeslam, and Khali stays down for the 10 count. Undertaker finally got his revenge, and gave Khali his BEST match ever. Nothing before, and sure as hell nothing after, has been as good for Khali.

As far as LMS matches go, there are definitely better ones, but its certainly not the worst. Khali actually looked... decent in the match, as his power offence worked perfectly here, and Undertaker sold extremely well for him. A couple of good, brutal spots too, and a satisfying finish . Won't make my list, but it probably would finish in my top 200 (which is a good thing lol).

He also had the top 50 finishing moves in his top 5 . And Punk wasn't his #1. COTC was.

Deadliest Matches is a great set.

Undertaker vs. Ultimate Warrior - Decentish. Nice rare match at least, rather than a repeat.
Undertaker vs. Kamala - Decentish again, and I don't own many Survivor Series events so nice to own the first "coffin" match .
Undertaker vs. Kama - Slow, but I enjoy it.
Undertaker vs. King Mabel - No thanks .
Undertaker vs. Mankind - Fucking AWESOME, and probably the most underrated match in their series.
Undertaker vs. Mankind - Shit and boring. Fuck the boiler room brawl match.
Undertaker vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin - Alright, nothing special, like most of their matches.
Undertaker vs. Kane - TV match, so nice to see on a DVD. Plus it has FIRE.
Undertaker vs. Big Show - This the one with the ring breaking? Or the next one? I think they were short matches anyway, fun and nothing more.
Undertaker vs. Big Show - See above.
Undertaker vs. The Dudleys - Honestly, the match is ok. Solid. Just the angle going into it was fucking terrible and the aftermath was stupid .
Undertaker vs. Heidenreich - Fun match, but would have liked to have seen the SS match instead.
Undertaker vs. Randy Orton & “Cowboy” Bob Orton - Incredible match, best casket match of all the times.
Undertaker vs. Randy Orton - Fucking incredible, one of my all time favourite HIAC matches and easily a top 5 for me.
Undertaker vs. The Great Khali - Really good and Khali's best match as already stated.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Orton and Taker had HIAC? Man, I gotta check that one out?

Hey, what do you guys think about their SD match? The match was ok but holy shit that casket magic trick was pretty damn laughable. I laughed my ass off hard with that one.
