This. The moment after he had a split-second breakdown and Superkicked Taker with Taker kicking out is priceless. He legit looked like he was in sheer and utter agony.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Anyone got any snowflakes for MITB 2012? Just picked it up on blu-ray on the cheap.

This Freemantle place is painfully slow in putting up their new website for us UK DVD buyers. Just wanna know their prices aren't going to be extortionate. Silvervision were pretty perfect to be honest so will be great if they can match them

Currently marking for: Brock the GOAT Lesnar . Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins, The Network..

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Damn one snowflake and a quarter of the other for Punk/Bryan MITB? That might be the lowest I have ever seen.

On a related now, I too have also been meaning to look at Hogan/Warrior WM VI. It looks like an exciting match but then again WWE editing can make any damn thing look good. But the match is such a historical match, I owe it to myself to see it.

Nice to see there are some others who agree with me that Punk/Cena turned into a finisher fest at the end. And no, I do not support the argument that that's the WWE style for main events. The main event style of WWE consists of false finishes. Those were two counts. There's a difference between a false finish and a 2 count.

Still a great match, imo, and I have it 4 stars but the match had so much more potential. Not to mention the awesome build to it. I wish we could see that side of Cena more often. Punk is one of the few opponents that could bring out some seriousness in Cena. Still, the worst and I mean the very worst of their encounters is their RAW match. Hated that so damn much. Now that was the real finisher fest.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

*~Judgement Day 2005 review*~


MNM vs Hardcore Holly and Charlie Haas for the WWE tag team championships: **1/2. Eh, this match was okay for what it was. Not really note-worthy or anything. Dull start 5 minutes into the match but it really picked up once Hardcore Holly went for the hot tag to Charlie Haas. An okay start to the PPV with MNM retaining the WWE tag team titles and rightfully so. MNM were showing potential all through-out 2005 and would make the WWE tag team division on Smackdown interesting again. That is until Brian Kendrick and Paul London were paired as a tag team.

Carlito vs The Big Show: *1/2. Most of the match is Big Show dominating Carlito with Carlito barely getting any offesne in and also the Matt Mogan inerference with Morgan giving Big Show an F-5 and Carlito scoring the pin. Plus, the match is short. Moving along, nothing to see here.

Paul London vs Chavo Guerrero for the Cruiserweight championship: ***. Decent Cruiserweight title match between Paul London and Chavo Guerrero. It was fast-paced and had a could of great spots in it like Paul London hitting a Senton Bomb on the turnbuckle on Chavo Guerrero from outside the ring. A minor problem I did have with the match is Chavo abandoning the arm-work but other than that, it was a pretty good match. This should have opended the show instead of the tag team match IMO.

Booker T vs Kurt Angle: ***1/2. I enjoyed this match a lot actually. Really good in-ring wrestling and also brawling with Booker T kicking Kurt's ass from start to finish. This match dragged a little too long for my liking and the pacing of the match was a little off but it was still great. Booker T gets the win which was the end of their feud as Kurt Angle would soon head to Raw afterwards.

Orlando Jordan vs Heidenreich for the United States championship: *. I'm slapping myself in the head for even watching this match. It was boring as hell and a match that should have been on Velocity. That's how bad it was.

Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero: ****. Awesome match. The in-ring stuff was great, the pacing was great, and the crowd was great. While this match pales in comparison to the another Guerrero/Mysterio matches, I find it to be better than their Great American Bash 05 encounter. I would have liked to see Eddie pick up the win here to avenge his his loss to Rey at WrestleMania 21 but eh, no biggie I guess.

John Cena vs JBL for the WWE championship: ****1/2. While this match isn't anything special, it's still a great brawl between John Cena and JBL. It was an all-out WAR between the two with all of the blood-shed. This match was brutal, intense, and got Cena over as a top face right around the time where the WWE needed a fresh face to fill the void after Brock Lesnar left and Cena was that guy. This match was JBL and John Cena's best match with one another and a BIG step-up from their dull match at WrestleMania 21. Great I Quit match and a great way to end off their feud.

Final rating: 5/10. Besides the awesome main event between John Cena and JBL over the WWE championship, the Eddie vs Rey Mysterio match, and the solid Booker T vs Kurt Angle match, this PPV felt like a 2005 episode of Smackdown. Now I get that not every match needs to be 5-star worthy and that some matches have to be filler to fill in time but the rest of the card felt either thrown together or uninteresting. Given the lack of star-power on the Smackdown brand, this PPV would have benefited if this PPV wasn't Smackdown exclusive and that the Raw brand was featured on the PPV as well. I'm not saying that the brand exclusive PPVs were all horrible but some of it suffered because of the lack of depth in the roster and this PPV was an example of a lack of depth in the Smackdown roster back in 2005. Average PPV with an underwhelming card overall.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think Eddie didn't win that match to further the storyline. Wish it had stayed in that lane instead of that stupid "secret" addition. I really like that JD PPV. Three good matches is a great thing for Smackdown PPVs when in 2004 they struggled to even have one of them.

Pretty sure JoeRulz gave it 1 star and called it "being generous".

And I don't know why you keep bringing up their Raw match as a finisher fest. That is, if you talk about their match shortly after SummerSlam. There was one GTS and one AA kick-out then the second AA following Nash's distraction ended it.

Got to disagree with this statement, this is the match that MADE Cena, others may argue that but this is where Cena became a main eventer, it was a war, brutal and electric.

Love this match i'd stick with ****1/2

I didn't think much of Angle/Booker **3/4
Eddie/Mysterio was awesome ****1/4
