Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Matches vs Diesel & Yokozuna weren't bad. Nash was motivated at the time and Yoko was a good big man worker. The rest, yeah, quite bad. I'll give Mabel/Viscera/BDV some credit. He could actually be good too. The casket match vs Taker was nothing noteworthy, however. Only about 6 minutes too. Giant Gonzalez was the topper of course. @ those matches.

I think the Streak was one of those things that seemed to take a life on it's own. WrestleMania rolled around and he always got the W. It wasn't until, what, WrestleMania 18 that it was finally acknowledged? 10-0 made them think "we should roll with this."

Streak first got mentioned during the build to WM 17 with HHH. JR was doing research for commentary and realised that Undertaker had never lost yet. Wonder if they decided then and there that he would keep going with it.

It's possible. Had emphasis following WrestleMania 17.

I don't remember No Way Out that well but I think a couple of the matches are good like Undertaker/Big Show and Jericho/Jeff Hardy. Bad Blood was absolutely terrible. One of the most boring HIAC matches ever and I don't remember anything else. Jericho/Goldberg was okay and HBK/Flair forgettable. What else was there?

The best 2003 PPVs are Royal Rumble (for Benoit/Angle alone), WM19, Backlash, Vengeance, SummerSlam, No Mercy and Survivor Series. Other PPVs have some good matches such as Lesnar/Show (Judgment Day), Orton/HBK (Unforgiven) and Orton/RVD (Armageddon).

I'm getting the Wrestlemania 28 DVD next week. How is the full HOF ceremony?

NWO has three good matches in Jeff/Y2J, Matt/Kidman and Team Angle vs Benoit/Lesnar/Rhyno. Also Austins return and Hogan/Rock 2 are fun to watch.

Bad Blood also has three good matches in Goldberg/Y2J, HBK/Flair and HHH/Nash in the Cell with Foley as ref. Just skip the first four matches and you got one heck of a PPV.

It was just Benoit & Lesnar in a handicap match. Edge was originally scheduled to be their tag partner. I think Rhyno tagged with Benoit afterwards though (including WM).

I remember being hugely impressed with Matt vs Kidman. More so than I was ever expecting.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker vs Big Show from NWO 03 is fucking AWESOME for what it was. Not exactly **** or anything, but a very, very good match if I remember that correctly. The Brock/Benoit tag is completely awesome as well. Love the "Triple Main Event" they advertised ;

- HHH-Steiner II : *
- Austin-Bischoff : 1/2 *
- Hogan-Rock II : **

TERRIBLE.

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

Thought that Brock/Benoit Vs Team Angle match was pretty crappy tbh. Definitely not what I was expecting (should have been awesome).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't see the point in rating a "match" like Austin/Bischoff. That was a highly entertaining segment. The prick boss got his ass handed to him by the returning Rattlesnake, Montreal was super hot crowd with the reactions, and JR was a GOD on commentary


Much gratitude to
