Read Brock's book the other day, and it seems like he pretty much loves everybody in the wrestling business but despises everything about backstage politics and on the road travelling. It was really interesting when he talked about what he felt were his best matches ;
- vs Rob Van Dam (Vengeance 2002)
- vs Hogan (Smackdown 2002)
- vs Rock (Summerslam 2002)
- vs Undertaker (Unforgiven 2002)
- vs Undertaker (No Mercy 2002) ; Brock Cites this is being his absolute best match in the book.
- vs Angle (Wrestlemania XIX)
The book is really WRESTLING heavy which makes it awesome automatically, but you can tell by reading it how much respect he has for guys like Taker (who he talks about like the locker room godfather) and how he feels Taker is essentially the greatest ever. He even talks about his respect for Ric Flair, even though he claims he never wants to be anything like Flair. FUCK, he dedicates a whole chapter expressing his love for Curt Hennig, what a great book.... Even though I know this isn't a BOOK FORUM (that would be hilarious) but I just needed to say that it's awesome.
Made me think about something ; Lesnar's most underrated match and Lesnar's most overrated match.
The obvious pick for most underrated would have to be the Stretcher match with The Big Show @ Judgment Day 2003. I've been pimping that match as a classic and Show's best singles for seemingly almost 10 years now but it seems as if nobody wants to throw more than ***
at it. Fuck, a ton of people give it like... **
. Complete fucking nonsense, it's a fucking classic !
Overrated ? I don't know about this one... Probably Backlash 2003 vs John Cena, which I do really like for the absolute stiffness by both men..... But it's not a four star match like some people claim due to who's in it. Just because they wrestled a top 10 match in company history 9 years later doesn't make the earlier one any better... Even though it's still awesome
