Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just got done writing about RR 95. An 8 year streak of the RR event having at least one awesome tag match on the show. Shame it ended there .

Steiner is hilarious, but I hate his real voice.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Using my personalized CAL SCALE to rate Cyber Sunday 2007.

CAL SCALE

Long Shitty Segment : -1
DUD-* : -1
*-1/2 : -.5
* 3/4 - ** 1/4 : 0
** ½-** ¾ : .5
***-*** ¼ : 1
*** ½-*** ¾ : 2
****-**** ¼ : 3.5
**** 1/2 - **** ¾ : 5
***** : 6

Rey Mysterio vs Finlay (Stretcher Match) : ***

CM Punk vs The Miz : **

Jeff Hardy vs Ken Kennedy : **

MVP vs Kane : ½ *

Randy Orton vs Shawn Michaels : *** ½

Triple H vs Umaga (Street Fight) : *** ¾

The Undertaker vs Batista (Special Referee Steve Austin) : **** ¼

Overall Score : 7.5

Great Show here. The last three matches are so great that coupled with the opener makes this one of the best PPVs of 2007. Trips-Umaga is probably my highest match ever that I don't have at 4 stars because SOMETHING keeps me from putting it there. HBK-Orton give us a sneak preview of their classic Survivor Series match, while Taker-Batista steal the show once again in their second greatest match.

Oh yeah, Mysterio-Finlay owned as a short little opener there. Punk-Miz was a COMPLETE carry job to a pretty MEH match due to Miz being unable to conjure up anything resembling good selling or good offense. Kennedy-Hardy was far superior than it had any fucking right to be, while MVP-Kane was complete fucking garbage.

Watch for the triple main event here. One of the better triple main events you'll find, especially on a B-Level show such as Cyber Sunday. Almost finished NO WAY OUT 2007 and then I have a choice between Summerslam and Unforgiven 2007, both of which I remember being absolute fucking GARBAGE.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

CAL SCALE. It's kicking off. Awesome.

Need to modify it this year. Will likely do something with it when I review the RR at the end of the month. Then I can use it on all the other RR events that I've been reviewing and rank them. LISTS. FUCK YEAH.

About to watch the 1996 RR to get a head start on tomorrow. On of my fav RR matches, hope it holds up. Undercard looks terrible aside from the wwf title match, but that's a match people either love or hate due to the very slow pace.

The Undertaker vs Batista with Austin as special referee? Weird that I haven't seen this match yet. Sounds pretty promising. I'll check it out later.

My favourite match from their epic series. Barely behind WM as the best too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Never seen that one. I don't care for the '97 Undertaker vs Bret matches, so I'm lukewarm. Slow pacing works for me. It only matters if the match is good. Which I don't consider the Summerslam & One Night Only matches to be. To my ultimate disappointment. It's ok, I got plenty of other Undertaker greatness for me to love out there.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread



CAL SCALE-ING every single Wrestlemania when I go from I-XXVIII. In order to get to that point however, I must get through Unforgiven/Summerslam 2007, and Hell in a Cell/Survivor Series 2012 with TLC probably thrown in there once it's released on DVD. I find it's actually a brilliant way to rank PPVs. I just tinkered with it a little bit and decided to subtract points whenever there was something really shitty involved.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cody's new Finlay sig is SWANK, tbhayley.

Best 10 workers in the company in terms of pure ability (not in order):

Bryan
Punk
Cena
Mysterio
Sheamus
Christian
Bourne
Mcintyre
Regal
Henry

Christian/Orton is pretty much a two match series for me. First encounter on Smackdown and the rematch at OTL which is comfortably the best of their series. Everything after with Christian turning heel and being nowhere near as good as he is as a face worker, coupled with Orton being below average as a face worker..blurgghh. OTL had the best dynamic with Christian being the plucky underdog trying to outwrestle and break the preverbial glass ceiling in Orton.

Sheamus is probably a top 5/6 worker in the company atm, with Henry and Bourne both injured and Mysterio wasted with the horrendous Cara. He's a really underrated babyface in peril worker, structures his matches well and works a variety of matches very well: can brawl with Tensai, Show and Barrett, work quicker and more story driven matches with Bryan and Morrison and can even work agile sprints with someone like Ziggler. I still think his true test is to excel against someone like Cena or Del Rio, guys similar in size and style to him. I have no doubt he'll deliver against smaller or larger opponents, but the jury's still out on him vs a guy not too dissimilar to him imo. His performance against Morrison at TLC 2010 is still his absolute best imo. Such a wonderfully constructed ladder match full of smart pacing, structure, heat segment and timing all of Morrison's comebacks superbly so they came off as desperate and heroic instead of spotty.
