LET'S NOT FORGET ABOUT NO MERCY !

**** 1/4 Match against Benoit there





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. 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

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

NM with Benoit isn't that good imo. Used to love it, but really just didn't hold up at all on a rewatch.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Still say their gold standard is the "pick your poison" match a few weeks before Wrestlemania XXI. Benoit is up there with the best opponents Trips has ever had, they have this insane chemistry in the ring.

Love their Gold Rush match too. Shame that they'll never be released on DVD , which pisses me off A-FUCKING-LOT.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Finished HBK/Mankind IYH:Mind Games 1996 ****.

Really an extended brawl than wrestling match. Throughout, I never knew what was going to happen next which was refreshing. A page back I commented on the stiff shots from Michaels and was going to count that against the match. While Mick had and would have worst shit done to him, it came off as unprofessional. Showstopper said that they were actually planned to mock his outburst on Vader at Summerslam, so I see it as making the match better. The table spot got a legit "Holy Shit" out of me.

More random matches and stars

Bret "Hitman" Hart vs Hakushi In Your House 1 1995 ****
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper vs Goldust Hollywood Backlot Brawl Wrestlemania 12 1996 ***
CM Punk vs Jeff Hardy TLC for World Heavyweight Championship Summerslam 2009 ****1/2
Undertaker vs Mankind Hell in a Cell King of the Ring 1998 ****1/2

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched the TLC match from the other night because someone posted the youtube link in another thread. My God. I don't think I could get tired of watching that match. Utter chaos, and everything seemed timed to perfection. The entire match was incredible, but I particularly enjoy the sequence that began with Reigns spearing Kane through the barricade -> Reigns and Rollins celebrating to the point where they almost lost the match because they were unaware that Ambrose was selling the No Lock like crazy and was on the verge of tapping -> Bryan lets Ambrose go and puts Rollins in the No Lock -> Reigns makes the save and Bryan reverses a back suplex into No Lock -> Ambrose/Rollins make the save and set Bryan up for a BRAINBUSTAAAHHHHH on the chair -> Bryan reverses and kicks the ever-living shit out of both of them -> Ambrose stops the onslaught -> Rollins hits the BLACKOUT on Bryan onto the chair. That was literally a fucking awesome sequence.
