WWF No Way Out 2001 - 3 Stages of Hell: Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Triple H

Before i get to the match i just wanna say the video package before the match might be the greatest package of all time, well after the WM-Seven one. And the build to this has been FUCKIN' great with the zero tolerance stuff which i think was underappreciated if you think about it, YEAH! this was a blood feud but if WWF/E would of booked HHH/Austin just to kill each other every week for 3/4 months fans would of gotten tired of that so why not do the "If HHH provokes Austin he gets suspended for 6 months, and if Austin provokes HHH he loses his WWF title match @ WM. And having them tease that for a month was great." But that's just me. Okay back to the match. Yeah this still holds up to this day, The match is filled with all the things that make a great match intensity, violence, hatred, story-telling, emotion, psychology ect. But the thing that really sticks out in my mind was the finish and how YES! HHH got the pin but both his shoulders were down too and it made him look like he got lucky and won it, as Lawler says that it’s not fair to say either guy really won. Just an absolute WAR with these two beating the living hell out of each other and I love every minute of it. *****

Btw, I'm interested in watching some old Raw shows. Is Raw "The Beginning": The Best of Seasons 1 & 2 worth picking up for that sort of thing? It's cheap now but I'm wondering how good it is with seeing a shitload of Doink on it?
Good set, really fun, and most of the Doink on it is the AWESOME Doink aka heel Doink aka Matt Bourne.

There are plenty of awesome tags from Raw 04 that people need to watch . Evolution Vs any combination of Jericho, Benoit, Foley, HBK, Shelton, Edge etc usually always turned out great. There's a 6 man elimination tag I adore too. Oh and TAJIRI gets a chance to shine in at least one of them as well. Amazing how far ahead of 03 Raw 04 was . Trips was capable of working again, Batista and Orton were getting better all the time, Flair was in his ubercrazyoldman stage, and the likes of Edge, Benoit, Jericho, Shelton and others were getting big pushed and having career years, while HBK was also there tagging along for the ride doing good shit, and every now and then Foley would show up too .

Yeah, that Raw: The Beginning is a really good purchase. Full of great matches and clips.

I lost it worse than HHH in that segment when it got to that part. "Down there.... in the COCKCOCKCOCKCOCK-COCKLES of your heart.... you are WORRIED!" CORNBREAD-DAMMIT-CORNBREAD!

Amazes me that he's become of the absolute most DULL competitors in the company today. He's right there will Del Rio in terms of me not giving a fuck about anything he does. Yeah, he has talent, but I just don't care. There is absolutely nothing about him that makes me want to sit through anything he does any more. I keep hearing that he's gonna return as a heel when he returns from whatever injury he's suffering from atm. I hope he comes back with some character too, because right now he's just wasting away and its kind of a shame.
I heard Orton wont return until he turns heel so that's good news. Just wish he would grow his hair back. Orton today almost feels like a different person compared to old Orton.

Love their Gold Rush match too. Shame that they'll never be released on DVD , which pisses me off A-FUCKING-LOT.
Pick Your Poison fucking rules! But yeah, sucks that they'll never put it on any DVD. It's such an obscure match, though. So chances are slim even if a miracle happened where the police claimed that Benoit is innocent and WWE stopped pretending that he never existed. (oh how I wish that would happen at one point)

Only thing I prefer about their Gold Rush match is Benoit wearing those awesome red tights (random lol) and he makes Trips TAP OUT again!

Fuck this DVD is so much better than anything I've watched lately
It sucks really. He had so much potential to be a main event player and when the opportunity came, he fucked it up.

Raw is War - December 7, 1998

I just finished watching this episode on WWE Classics On Demand and have a question. Lawler and Cole are doing commentary for the entire episode, however, during the camera shots where you can actually see the announce booth, it's the King and JR that are sitting there. Anyone know why Lawler and Cole are doing voice over commentary?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Undertaker Vs Mankind - Survivor Series 1996

Referred to as the "forgotten match" from their series, and for good reason because even I forgot they wrestled at this event!

Paul Bearer is stick inside a cage, and if Undertaker wins he gets Paul or something. I think that's how it goes anyway.

Mankind really has had Undertaker's number since debuting earlier in the year, and its caused Undertaker to evolve and adapt. We see it a lot here as he pulls out some "TECHNICALS" moves in order to perhaps throw Mankind off his game by doing something he wouldn't expect. We also see Undertaker take a page out of HBK's book by targeting the hand, hoping to disable the Mandible Claw!

Undertaker must have run out of black hair dye around this time because he's completely GINGER lol.

Nice back and forth brawling between the two. Undertaker even BITES the hand of Mankind to make sure the Mandible Claw can't be used! Then Mankind catches Undertaker in a pretty fucking sweet Piledriver.

Foley is fucking insane with some of the "small" bumps he takes, where he takes basic bumps and somehow makes them worse by splattering on the floor more than anyone else would, or by smashing his head on something lol.

Even Undertaker bumps a little more than usual, and its great to hear Paul Bearer screaming in pure joy when Undertaker gets hurt lol.

The hand of Mankind seems to be damaged from Undertaker targeting it, so Mankind resorts to using a weapon in his hand instead, which the referee seems completely oblivious to .

TOMBSTONE OUT OF NOWHERE! Undertaker gets the win, and as a result he gets Paul Bearer until TERRY GORDY shows up to make the save. Undertaker gets a win over Mankind, but doesn't get the revenge he wants.

Good match. Not their best PPV outing, in fact based on the quality of most of their matches its probably the second worst PPV match they had, but its not bad at all and so far above the horrible Boiler Room Brawl match .

RVD is one of my favorites. All those years he spent toiling and being held down and he fucks it up not even two months after winning the strap. That's some shameful shit. His DVD is awesome too. The matches with Sabu and the match with Bam Bam are amazing. Its one of my favorite DVDs.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Almost finished the DVD now, only two more left and they would happen to be extra matches on the disc that are on here for some reason or another. SUPER FUNTASTIC DVD is all I gotta say about this one ; six hours seemed to fly by like NOTHING when watching this. Throw some STARZ! out there later.

ONE MORE DVD TO FINISH BEFORE CHRISTMAS. ECW Unreleased Vol 1. Oh dear.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

lol @ Gingertaker. I always laugh at him whenever he appears in ginger hair color. The most recent one has to be Wrestlemania 20. He looked so damn ginger there. For some reason, on that week's Smackdown, they had him wear that ABA bandanna which looked totally out of place with his Deadman outfit.

What's the match when Foley gets knocked off the apron and flies headfirst into the announce table?
