Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I would strongly recommend No Mercy 2006. The card on paper isn't amazing but I assure you it is ag good event. Some good technical wrestling, brawling, spotfest type matches. There is pretty much something for everyone.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

In 06, No Way Out, Backlash, Unforgiven, No Mercy, Armageddon are all fantastic 'b' PPV's. The others not mentioned are all watchable too. Not a fan of New Years Revolution 06 though. Big Show v Triple H is a good match, better than I thought it would be, but the Elimination Chamber in my eyes was awful.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Plenty of the SD PPVs are worth a watch in 06. Hell, most of SD 06 is worth a watch in general. Finlay was the fucking KING that year. He should have been World Champ, not Booker T.

Raw so far, in terms of match quality, is fairing better than I thought it would. Just stuck atm since the show I'm up to is in awful quality and out of sync on the download I got, and I can't seem to find a better version.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I love Taker but I really have no desire to see him at Mania next year. If he wrestles at Mania next year it taints how amazing the HiaC match/ending was. It was just a great way to go out imho. My guess is he WILL be back but I think he should ride off into the sunset. Only thing that could top it would be a HiaC rematch with Brock but I will be shocked if Brock V Rock isnt happening at Mania 29. Anything can happen between now and then though.

My top 5 favorite wrestlers of all time
1. Macho Man Randy Savage (RIP...thanks for the memories)
2. Mick Foley (Cactus Jack)
3. Bret Hart (The Hart Foundation best tag team ever)
4. Sting
5. Ted DiBiase (best heel of all time)

his career overall? Its one of the best ever. Modern day Andre, but more complete
More complete?! Except for an agonizingly-slow ending you keep waiting for.

Many matches? Yeah but lots have that. Many classics? Eh. MOTY? Not in the last several. Stolen? Only if you're counting by the minute. Getting better as he aged? Maybe you've also aged & need your eyes checked.

That was great. Marked for Flair coming down to the ring with blood all over him

I know! LOL

But the way JR put over Foley and Nash was godly. "Michael Francis Foely will not die!" and "the 7-foot 300-pound assassin" are so over-the-top but gold. Also "His HEART didn't retire... his SOUL didn't retire... his PASSION didn't retire!!!"

But nothing better than at the end when he says, "It's going to be a blood bath SUNDAAAY!!!"

God I love JR.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Thoughts on Bret vs Undertaker match from One Night Only match ? For me it's the best non gimmic straight wrestling match Taker has ever had. People may argue that Taker vs HBK matches from Mania are better, but no way ONO match had better psychology & storytelling in the ring.

People who hate can sometimes understand the other persons point of view but you just go in blind with everything you say.

Classics? Eh? I'll name a few shall I?

Bad Blood vs. Michaels *****
Vengeance vs. Angle vs. Rock ****1/2
No Mercy vs. Lesnar ****3/4
Wrestlemania 17, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28
Summerslam vs. Edge ****1/2
No Way Out vs. Angle ****1/2

Theres a small handful there. And a lot of them could/are MOTY.

Stolen? Well he has stolen Wrestlemania for the past 4 years. And his match quality has got better as he has aged although I do love old Taker.

Haters gonna hate.

Why would you want him gone so bad? He has one match a year where he always delivers, and then he leaves. No spotlight hogging

Ok, im really getting bored here.

You said lets take this into rants, why not
