People need to watch Vader's UWFi stuff. Incredible.

Their HIAC match sucked, though.

I've seen one of those matches and it was pretty incredible. He was the perfect monster heel there and the crowd's reaction to the match was amazing. I found myself hoping against reason that the much smaller Japanese guy would someone pull out the win against him. I know I wrote up a review for it in the puro thread and I had it at like ****1/2

WWE TLC 2010 Review

I bought it at FYE the other day in a buy 1 get 1 free sale on new DVDs. Pretty awesome deal since I ended up paying $3.50 for this new.

Ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship
Dolph Ziggler(c) w/Vicki Guerrero vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger

This was a lot of fun. You have 3 athletic guys that had the chance to show off. It worked really well here. Also I've seen so many ladder matches and there were still a bunch of spots that were new to me. There was good pacing, minimal disappearing from the guys in this (a plus in a multi-man ladder match). Another thing that I liked was that the main focus of the match was clearly to get the belt and it was just a frantic scramble to get the belt. Good stuff.

Tables Match:
Laycool vs. Beth Phoenix and Natalya

I really liked this a lot. I think it might be one of the best Divas matches that I've seen in the last 5 years or so, maybe even more. You had heels that everyone wanted to see put through a table and the fact that this was a tables match gave the fans something to look forward to. So on top of this being a good Divas this had a fantastic crowd for a Divas match. They built the table spot well with control of the match going back and forth between the two teams. A good match, not just a good Divas match.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match:

Santino Marrella and Vladamir Koslov(c) vs. Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel w/Nexus

Short and not very good. You had some comedic antics from Santino, his failed attempt at a leg sweep was pretty hilarious. Other than that there was a short control segment, a hot tag, and then a DQ ending. It was funny to see the heels cheat and actually get caught. Total filler.

Ladder Match:

Sheamus vs. John Morrison

So watching this made me realize that the TLC PPV does have some positives. You wouldn't have a ladder match like this on a regular PPV because this doesn't fit the mold of what we would expect from a WWE ladder match. It's not a spotfest by any means and because of that it wouldn't be booked as the only ladder match on a PPV. This PPV format allowed me to see one of the best worked ladder matches that I've ever seen. It was a great match on it's own and the ladders were used to enhance the story being told. Sheamus focused his offense on the knee of Morrison. Morrison sold this as well as anyone could have. I don't think there was ever a moment where you didn't think his leg was hurt.

The selling was great the story was fantastic. It wasn't as spot heavy as a lot of other ladder matches but the spots in this were really good as there were a few things that I hadn't seen before. I loved the leg work on Morrison and how Sheamus used the ladder to really make it seem like Morrison was going to have to compete with one leg. As far as I know this was Sheamus' best match to date at this point (easily still top 5 now). I really can't think of anything bad to say about this. This is what a ladder is meant to be I think. I hope we see more matches like this.

Tables Match for the WWE Championship:

The Miz(c) w/Alex Riley vs. Randy Orton

It was pretty good but not great. That's unfortunately what I have to say about most Miz matches that I see. It was really forgettable but again, there wasn't really anything wrong with it. You had some good heel antics with the Miz and A-Ri and I will admit that they did a good job of building up the table spot. There were some good false finishes and seeing Orton get increasingly frustrated with A-Ri helping the Miz was a a nice touch.

TLC Match for the World Heavyweight Championship:
Edge vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Kane(c)

Well there were some cool spots. That's where the positives end though. I hated this. Most of the time they didn't even seem to care that they were supposed to get the title. Kane had everyone down and he was spending time outside the ring setting up tables. Guys would vanish for long periods time. Basically everything that I praised the Sheamus/Morrison match for not being this match was. No story, no point to any thing, and sloppy. I mean why the hell would you ever be fighting on the stage in a TLC match? The most infuriating part was seeing Edge, "The Ultimate Opportunist" climbing up a big ladder in the middle of the ring and jumping onto Kane, who was being held down by Rey Mysterio. Why wouldn't he just grab the belt? I know in some matches it made sense but not when you hear Edge talking about all the experience he has in these matches and then he goes and does something moronic.

As a spotfest it wasn't very good either. Mysterio had 2 awful looking botches. At two points ADR was just standing in the ring and staring at Rey waiting for him to hit his spot. Once ADR was actually on the ladder and the other time Rey was on the top rope and ADR just stood there looking at him waiting for him to jump. Sure there were some cool spots, but I'm an indy wrestling fan. I've seen a CZW Cage of Death from the second row. I don't watch WWE to see spotfests because they don't compare to what else I could go and see. Awful match, the only redeeming factor being the spots.

Chairs Match:
Wade Barrett vs. John Cena

I loved the use of the office chair, that was pretty funny. I also loved that Punk was on commentary. There was also a few cool spots. Other than that this was boring for lack of a better word. The chairs did nothing to enhance the match, overall they were probably more of a detraction. Wade's control segment came across flat, which in turn made Cena's comeback suffer. It was just a really basic match with chairs used a lot more than needed. I guess I wouldn't call it bad but it's nothing I would go our of my way to see again.

Overall I liked the show even if the last two matches were complete let downs. Sheamus/Morrison was awesome and the rest of the undercard was at least solid. There's just no point in watching after the WWE Title match though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I watch Bret/Diesel RR95 the other night. Damn was that a great WWF Title match. Bret was Diesel's best opponent ever. I loved how both men sold their injuries throughout that match and would do anything to be WWF Champion. The interference was basically used to keep both men strong without out one going over the other and made for good build to RAGE IN A CAGE so I didn't mind it. The Rumble match is great, KOTR from 94 was quality, and the Survivor Series 95 match is just classic. Bret-Diesel is another one of my all time favorite bigger man vs. smaller man combinations up there with Michaels-Taker and Sting-Vader (Sting wasn't that small but Vader was just a monstrous obstacle he had to take down).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Have Del Rio and BARRETT swap places and you'd have yourselves the best possible champion line-up in history.

Wade has been awesome lately. He's no in ring technician but he's extremely solid at best. Not to mention he's a fantastic promo as well.

EDIT- Just watched some of the retro Smackdowns that WWE uploaded onto their Youtube account and Triple H/Rikishi from the January 4th, 2000 edition of Smackdown is great, great fun.

Speaking of Mick Foley I am super psyched for his new DVD set coming out.

No, you're not. For once, we're on the same page.

Didn't really enjoy Foley/Hunter much because it felt too dead with the poor crowd (specially for MSG standards) and just lacked the atmosphere Foley's no DQ matches have. Orton/Foley succeeded in every way and the crazy thing is, it's arguably not even the MOTN.
