ECW One Night Stand 2006

Randy Orton vs. Kurt Angle - ***1/2
The F.B.I. (Little Guido Maritato and Tony Mamaluke) (w/Big Guido) vs Yoshihiro Tajiri and Super Crazy - ***1/4
World Championship - Rey Mysterio(c) vs Sabu - ***1/2
Terry Funk, Tommy Dreamer and Beulah vs Mick Foley, Edge and Lita - ****
Balls Mahoney vs Masato Tanaka - *1/2
WWE Championship: John Cena(c) vs. Rob Van Dam - ***3/4

Great event, glad I decided to put it in the PS3 and give it a watch for the first time in a long while. Every match delivered, even the Balls/Masato match was watchable despite the low rating I gave it.

I'd replace Rumble 2001 with Vengeance 2003 and that's spot on, IMO.

I've been watching a lot of new stuff recently that I haven't seen before, might flick through some DVDs I've had a while. I always love watching PPVs i've seen before, gives you a real indication if the match is good or not, or if you just like it because of the atmosphere or the context, so to speak. No Mercy 2001 first.

It might be a nostalgia thing.

RR 2001 was the first PPV I ever watched and it's what inspired me to become the Kane mark that I am today! I also loved the ladder match and the HHH v Angle match. The rumble match itself was very balanced, with short and sweet comedy spots and as a casual fan at the time, it felt like any number of guys could've won the thing (Austin, Kane, Rock, Taker, Rikishi, Big Show, even Haku).

I saw Vengeance 2003 not too long ago and it is a good show, however I was on a hiatus from wrestling when the show originally aired, so I was probably missing some of the atmosphere surrounding the PPV.

Yeah it's a great show, I think I refer ONS 2005 though, not sure.

Whoever said they are starting with No Mercy 2001, do it. It's one of the best non Mania's ever, easily.

I just ordered the new Edge DVD set from Silvervision. Why is the packaging all different? Like it's a clip open box rather than a thing you slide out and open up.

In Chronological Order:

Money in the Bank 2011
SummerSlam 2009
No Way Out 2009
No Mercy 2008
Royal Rumble 2007
Unforgiven 2006
SummerSlam 2005
SummerSlam 2002
Unforgiven 1999
SummerSlam 1991

-MITB '11 is just about perfect. TWO great MITB matches, the first of which is one of the best, a surprisingly good big man match, a very good co main event with a shocking ending, and quite possibly the best wrestling match ever.

-SS '09 is just a blast. Mysterio/Ziggler is a super hot opener, you get a nice tag team match, Khali/Kane does it's job, DX/Legacy is a classic tag match, Orton/Cena is a wonderfully over-booked spectacle, and TLC is a great main event.

-NWO '09 has two legtimately great EC matches, a shocking turn of events between the first and last, an old-school fight between Orton/Shane, and a solid HBK/JBL match.

-No Mercy '08 is probably the most stacked "B" ppv ever. You get a surprisingly good Hardy/Henry opener, Mysterio/Kane is a lot of fun, UT/Big Show is probably one of the fastest 10-minute big man matches ever, and a legitimate double main event in HHH/Hardy and Y2J/HBK, two great world title main events, one after another.

-RR '07 is a classic for me. Hardys/MNM in another dream match (also a great opener), Batista/Kennedy is a nice little sleeper, Cena/Umaga is one of the best matches of 2007 (though there were a lot to choose from), and the 2007 RR is easily the best Royal Rumble match of all time, and that's before UT and HBK are the last two.

-Unforgiven 2006: Nitro/Hardy for 17 minutes, Kane/Umaga solid big man brawl, DX/McMahons & Show is ridiculously entertaining, Trish Stratus' last major match against her greatest nemesis, a sleeper in Orton/Carlito, and MOTY in Edge/Cena.

-SummerSlam 2005: amazing that back in 2005, they could get so many great huge matches onto one show: The 25-second OJ/Benoit opener was a nice surprise, Eddie/Mysterio in an awesome ladder match, UT/Orton in a great rematch, Cena/Jericho in a nice little dream match, Batista/JBL is a under-rated brawl, and a classic dream match in Hogan/HBK.

-These are the matches from SummerSlam 2002: Rey Mysterio vs. Kurt Angle, Ric Flair vs. Chris Jericho, Edge vs. Eddie Guerrero, Christian & Lance Storm vs. Booker T & Goldust, Chris Benoit vs. Rob Van Dam, Undertaker vs. Test, Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels, and The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar. Oh, and they're all good to great. So much amazing star-power and work-rate with the real aid of gimmicks.

-Unforgiven 1999 is pure attitude era crap, but I just seem to really enjoy it for some reason.

-Back in 1991, Mr. Perfect and Bret Hart had their first ppv match, Ted DiDibiase defending the million dollar belt against Virgil, The Big Boss Man faced The Mountie, The Legion of Doom fought The Nasty Boys, and the main event featured Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Sgt. Slaughter, and Sid Vicious. Is the work-rate top notch. Absolutely not, but in 1991, this card was STACKED. I saw this live and it's always been on of my favorites.

I wish in 2007 they still did Brand PPV's. I still think SD & Raw had strong enough rosters to put on good 'B' PPV shows. Especially considering the B PPV's were fantastic in 06.
