Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Commentary was epic but it doesnt change the fact that, well, there wasnt much of anything

It was literally just a guy almost dying, and two spots. Thats it

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So the HIAC is now **** but an extra * is added because of commentary?

The match is 20 minutes long, I reckon only 10 of which was actual brawling/wrestling. Yes two sick bumps were epic and it's one of the most if not the most memorable match of all time. To give it the full ***** is silly though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think it's best to not rate the Mankind/Taker HIAC at all. A rating will never do what the match represents justice. Mick Foley put his life was on the line that night. Taker took a chance too going into it with a broken foot. This match was on another level from any match that you just rate. There are probably a ton of Raw matches better than this match but this match shouldn't be looked at from that perspective imo. Same with Hogan/Andre WM3 and to a certain extent Hart/Michaels SS97. HIAC was a memorable WWE moment that will have images and video for the ages. It made Mick Foley a legend.

That HIAC between Taker and Mankind probably is the most famous match in the business history. If not, top 3. Imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That doesnt make it a good match

The closest equivalent is a car crash

Clique is right, its unrateable. Its place in history cannot be denied, but honestly, i dont feel comfortable calling it a match. I respect the hell out of mick, but he shouldnt have done it or the match with Rock at the Rumble

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If anyone cares this guy on YouTube has every raw, smackdown and PPV throughout the invasion.

I personally loved the Invasion, shame the big WCW stars didn't compete.

The attitude era ended at WM 17.

So its not the attitude era.

You do love talking about the attitude era, redeadening.
