Thoughts on Awesome-Tanaka (the series) ? Wouldn't throw **** at their N2R 1999 match, but I'd definitely throw *** 1/2 at it for the excitement. My favorite Awesome-Tanaka match would definitely be their ONS 2005 match with one of the greatest camera angles of all time in it.
Tanaka gets powerbombed through a table and the camera stays on him, when seconds later we see Awesome flying out of nowhere on top of him
TBH guys, I don't really talk about this ish very much, but talking about all of these rebookings and dream matches REALLY fucking makes me miss Benoit and Eddie... Like... ALOT. No doubt in my mind we would have saw a Cena-Eddie feud for the title in 2006 or 2007 that would have been fucking AWESOME, and Benoit probably would have stuck around to help the business and put over the likes of Punk
, Bryan, and the like. I think Benoit-Cena in a big match situation would have been amazing.
Two of the best in the world on top of the company, dead in three years. So fucking depressing.
At least his death had something good come out of it.
On the real, my dream feuds involving Benoit and Eddie that never happened are:
Eddie/Cena (main event in 2007)
Benoit/Cena (probably in 2008 or 09 after the brand extension was phased out)
Eddie/Orton (a PPV match would have been a CLASSIC!)
Eddie/HBK (would've happened in 06 had it not been for the tragic death)
Benoit/Taker (for Wrestlemania!!!
Eddie/Taker (one of the best one-on-one matches to never happen)
Benoit/Bryan (no more said!)
Benoit/Batista (Benoit got the first really good match out of Batista in the first Raw of 2005. A longer feud could've brought the best out of The Animal)
Eddie/Edge (with both as main eventers, they could've possibly surpassed their 2002 matches)
Eddie/HHH (their Raw draft 04 match was decent, who knows what a full feud would've brought out?)
Benoit/HBK (a real one-on-one feud without HHH sticking DAT NOSE in it!)
Damn, I can go on!
