That would be Wrestlewar 89 , the middle of the trilogy in terms of quality IMO.
Still ***** and one of the greatest matches ever. Triple H's personal favorite match of all time as well.
"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
I've fluctuated on it. After my last watch I was digging it the most I ever had. Spots came together well and it flowed a LOT better than I originally thought. A problem for me on my previous watches was that it was dull. I like it.
I saw that a lot of people were digging the Lashley/Cena match here. I decided to give it a second watch 5 years later...
Solid match but it's not even approaching the **** ratings i saw few pages ago. It's a 3* match for me at best.
- excellent opening with a funny test of strengh. Lashley is shown as the stronger man and few seconds later as the technician.
- Good moves from Lashley
- Nice Spear reversed into the STFU
- Cena hitting some random moves here and there without any logical reason
- Cena speaking too much to Lashley during the STFU spot
- Lashley absolutely no selling the STFU.
- The finish (second rope FU). It's personal, i didn't like it.
Lashley would have been huge if he stayed with the WWE. The video package was excellent and he was clearly presented as a future big time player. One of the biggest loss for the WWE in recent memories.
Forgot to say that JR was awesome during the match.
The finishing sequence is too hasty. I stick with my 3 starzzz damn it!!
They were gunning for him to be huge. I'm not sure if he had what it takes. Cena brought something special out of him, but as the past showed, he needed a really exceptional worker to bring it out. Not the best case you want in someone to have if they would lead the company down the line.
