WE AREN'T GETTING Brock-Trips II. IT MAKES NO SENSE. Both men fucking know that it's not going to do anything for anybody, including the buyrate (EVEN THOUGH IT WOULD BE AN AWESOME MATCH NO DOUBT )

I'm guessing if we don't then Lesnar/Undertaker but as it stands right now, I'll put my money on HHH/Lesnar II at Wrestlemania.

Rock match at SS '02 was cool as well...I wouldn't say "great" but it was a good match, a lot of fun to watch.


I dislike Big Show and never saw a Lesnar/Show match I felt I needed to see again. I think his most underrated match is the match he had with Test at KOTR 2002...it was a pretty good match to me.


That match with Triple H this past Summerslam was disappointing but it wasn't horrible, just not what I'd expected.


Lesnar isn't worth the money they spending on him, so I don't see a reason to re-sign him. Especially not for $5 million dollars and he only worked 2 events all year.
Agree that he is massively overrated by some. To even be in the discussion for greatest of all time, you need a body of work more than a year or two. Just the way it is.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It makes NO SENSE to have that match. Trips will probably just be involved with The Undertaker match or something, since Trips is involved with basically everything The Undertaker is involved in Kayfabe wise nowadays.

What's the biggest match that WWE can put on right now ? Lesnar-Rock. IT WILL HAPPEN EVENTUALLY.

Nobody has Lesnar in the GOAT discussion BECAUSE of what you just said ; his body of work simply isn't large enough. However, it's a great enough sample size that when you think about it.... He was certainly on pace to be one of the best workers ever. He could work well with ANYBODY, and his only bad match in my mind was his last one for obvious reasons.

If he sticked around, the guys he would have potentially locked up with on PPV were endless, as I'm certain he would have ended up on RAW taking on the likes of HBK, HHH, Jericho, Benoit, etc... years upon years of solid matches with great opponents would have given him QUITE an impressive match catalogue. No doubt we would have gotten Lesnar-HHH in the main event of Wrestlemania XXI.





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Lesnar is a hot commodity out here and while Its possible they pull Lesnar/Rock. There's a perfect set up....if Lesnar helps Punk retain at Rumble...then the match is set very easily. However I'm guessing Undertaker isn't going to let Lesnar get away without facing him and it makes no sense to have it at Extreme Rules.

Don't remind me. Would have been another classic in the books I'm sure. Fuck Ryback, he ruins everything.

WWF Backlash 2001 - WWF Heavyweight Championship, Intercontinental Championship & Tag Team Championship: Stone Cold Steve Austin & Triple H (w/Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley) vs. The Undertaker & Kane

Whoever gets the pin wins the title E.G. If his team would win he and Taker retain the tag titles and Kane would be the WWF Champion. As for Taker. The real story to this one is Kane’s injured arm, which was brutally beat by Austin and Triple H in the days leading up to the PPV. This did not need to be 27 minutes, AT ALL!. They pretty much killed time for 10 minutes, before the actual story began. Taker wanted to keep Kane out because of the bad arm, and then they finally isolated Kane and worked the arm. But the heat segment on Kane was fuckin' brutal and made this more fun. The finish was pretty predictable and you might think the Power Trip winning the titles was a big deal, but really they were rapidly losing meaning cause since NWO 2001 2 months ago the titles have changed hands SIX times. **1/2

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I love that tag match

I gave it **** on the last watch, and I'm standing by that. Same rating as Taker-Austin from Judgment Day 2001, their best match together by far.
