Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

We haven't had an Angle discussion in a while .... Let's keep it that way

Most Overrated/Underrated Match of the Last Decade ?

Most Overrated : Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero (Wrestlemania XXI)

Most Underrated : The Big Show vs Brock Lesnar (Stretcher Match ; Judgment Day 2003)

Don't really like using the words "Overrated" and "Underrated" because sometimes things become so overrated that they become underrated and vice versa (Rock-Cena and Bret-Shawn , two Wrestlemania main events that come to mind). Think of it more as "overrecognized" and "underrecognized"





"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

Ric Flair vs Shawn Michaels. Wrestlemania 24. Match itself was horrible. Emotion was high. Therefore, it was average.

I'm probably on my own here but I didn't like HBK/Cena neither. I thought the feud was drawn out and boring.

I think this counts as the last decade too but didn't Kawada/Mutoh back in the early 00s get Match of the Year praise at the time? I thought it was horrendous.

Overrated: Punk vs Bryan - Over the Limit 2012
Underrated: Have to think about that one for a bit

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Don't know about Kawada/Mutoh but I recently watched "2001.06.08.AJPW.Keiji Mutoh vs. Genichiro Tenryu.(WON MOTY)" and the fact it got the WON MOTY for 2001 ahead of about 20 WWF matches alone is absolutely INSANE because its terrible. Not even Tenryu could get something good out of Mutoh.

Overrated from this year: Rock/Cena

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^^Is Muta/Mutoh really that bad? I've heard of him being praised and seen as one of the greats of Japanese wrestling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Agree with Rock/Cena. It was so poor despite the anticipation. The crowd though make it some what watch able.

RVD/Lynn from Hardcore Heaven is so underrated, but that was late 90s so I can't really include it. I remember Lesnar and Angle having a match on Smackdown in the early 00s for the WWE title and I remember thinking this is fucking awesome.

Found this actually:

Muta is TERRIBLE. He really is.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Huh. The four matches I saw of his, I thought he was okay.

Sting vs Muta ***
I believe it was at Wargames. The match ended in what I think is called a "Dusty finish". (sounds dirty)

Steiners vs Muta & Mr. Saito ****
Happened at Starrcade.

Steamboat vs Muta **1/2
Happened in Japan. Can't remember date.

Sting/Flair vs Muta/Funk **
Electrified cage. So-so match.

I didn't see him as terrible, maybe average at best.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Muta's match against Double A in WCW (I want to say 1992, I'm not sure) was fucking awesome. But then again, he was against one of the in-ring GOATs.

There needs to be more ARN~! love in this thread.
