Great minds think alike.

And I can't wait till I watch WWF 1999. I refuse to believe it sucked.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is it a sin for me to say that i think ECW was a overrated shitfest that ruined pro wrestling and over exposed the business? It's just like any other indy promotion out there today, imo, in terms of the fast paced, hard hitting, no selling over the top action. Is is wrong for me to say that?

So LOW shitting on ECW?

I would really love to get the pros take on it rather than a "RVD/Jerry Lynn 5 stars omg!!!!" IWC memeber.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm almost into Raw 1999 with WWE Classics on Demand. WWF in 1997 and 1998 was awesome television for the most part every week. An underrated match I watched last night was Rock/Mankind at Rock Bottom 98. It had antics from Mr. McMahon, HOT crowd, couple of sick bumps from Mankind, with brilliant character work at the finish that left both men looking strong and continued the program.

There you go

It's a good episode especially if you're not a fan of ECW. Never liked Patterson so much haha

ECW had plenty of crap but the RVD/Lynn series is that fuckin good and they did tell stories unlike all the rest of the nonsense that may have gone on.

Of course it did. The show was held in Canada, Vancouver to be exact.

We really need another PPV here... Rock Bottom was the last one we had and that was 14 years ago

THERE IS ONLY ONE DIAMOND IN THE BUSINESS AND HIS NAME IS TITUS O'NEIL

Rhino was such a great heel in ECW. BEAST! No fucks were given.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Quite enjoyed Rhino's rise. The guy was like a mini version of Goldberg but his intensity was that much more... there to be honest.

My all time favourite heel from ECW though has to be Raven. No one even comes close to touching him.

Maybe Cyrus

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

ECW gets a bad rap and it gets overrated. It had some truly good-great matches that weren't that hardcore but they are looked over. Douglas/Bigelow told a damn fine story, and was very similar if not the same story Flair/Vader had told before but with an ECW twist. I really enjoyed it.
