I guarantee that having him on Raw every week would no doubt make the show infinitely more watchable, entertaining and not to mention they might actually get somebody over instead of fucking burying them through Cole every week.
Exactly, the man is amazing. Good commentary really does add to a match imo.
Btw, I didn't realise there was a place like this around here to have good, sensible discussions about WWE. This seems like a really good thread (apart from TJChurch), wish I had looked in here sooner. Good stuff.
I've been going through pretty much all of HBK's Wrestlemania matches again, and I'm thinking HBK/Taker at 25 might be my favorite. It seemed even better than when I watched it at the time actually. The 26 match is probably just as good, but the crowd wasn't as good and it didn't have JR who was awesome on the 25 match. Both are awesome matches though for different reasons.
HBK/Cena was really good, not as good as I remembered but it did have a really great big time match feel. The Angle match is great too, but again not as good as I thought it was the last time I watched it. It did have more of a coherent story than I thought it did though with Angle going after the back for a while but then that obviously gave way to ankle locks etc. It's one of Angles best matches though and he was actually really good back then. It's a shame what's happened to him now though, I guess it's a case of them letting him just do what he wants now.
I really liked the Flair match a lot more than when I first saw it. Flair actually hitting the cross body was amazing lol. It was awesome to see Flair in that kind of big time match again after so long and he really gave it his all. The end was incredible. Not the best in ring match, but I loved it for other reasons.
I also watched Taker/Shawn HIAC which is one of if not the best WWF/E match ever.
