Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Still amazes me that JR can be THAT awesome on a consistent basis, have the FANS give him standing ovations when he goes to the ring (either before the show starts, or when he's brought out during a show) AND have the wrestlers refer to him as one of the best announcers ever (HHH and Undertaker specifically asked for JR to call their WM match btw)... yet Vince and a few other higher ups are OBSESSED with showing him up on TV and keeping him away from the announce table. Insane. And even after all the shit they throw at him and all the times he's been legit fired, he is still a loyal company man.

It's amazing what a commentator can bring to a match/show/PPV.

JR is a God. He makes shit moments less shit, he makes average moments good, he makes good moments great, he makes great moments amazing, he makes amazing moments epic and he makes epic moments iconic. I'll never understand why he isn't on commentary when he's that good. 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.

Agreed. Looking back there were so many PPVs that Gorilla/Ventura and Gorilla/Heenan made better than they really were. There is a reason the entire 1992 Royal Rumble is on the Heenan DVD. Yes it's one of the best Rumbles but those two also make it that much better.

That's the lowest I've seen this match? Thought it was pretty amazing tbh, although I haven't seen it in a few years.

Posted that as soon as I finished watching it so it's pretty fresh in my mind.

Cena was okay... but HBK was just plain better. It was nice to see Cena get his moment at WrestleMania but not even the crowd bought into it 2bh.

Both men went through hell the entire match but the only thing that annoyed me was Michaels working on Cena's leg for the entire first 20 minutes of the match then Cena half-ass sell job of it, then all of a sudden he can run and do his 5 moves of doom which lead to a FU on Michaels.

The rest of the match King/J.R. and Cena forget about the bad leg he got in the first half of the match and continues to wrestle Michaels no problem... no hobbling, no nothing.

Of course Michaels tapping out to that half assed STFU must of gotten hardcore HBK fans pissed.
