I also believe that even though Foley-Orton rocked, I'd still put HHH-HBK-Benoit II over this by a considerable margin even though they hold the same SNOWFLAKES in my book (**** 1/2).
I COMPLETELY agree. Jericho, Foley, Shawn Michaels and Rey Mysterio are really the only people who pulled this off. Very rare select few people that can lose and lose and lose all the time, but still get the crowd to be extremely attached to them. Speaks to their characters really.

Just wondering, what was everybody on here's rating to the Christian/Del Rio Ladder Match from Extreme Rules 2011? I thought it was a BRILLIANT match and one of the best matches of the year. ****1/2

Infact, Del Rio/Christian really had some great matches. I remember they had a great Cage match on SmackDown before WrestleMania XXVII. Christian went over clean against Del Rio too

They really should've made it a Triple Threat between Edge/Christian/Del Rio at Mania

Bah! Christian should have won the MITB at WM 26 instead of Swagger.

We could then have had a smart, logical programme between Jericho/Edge/Christian over the world title.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well after a fair few hours of Foley goodness I think I love him even more

The man is a legend and deserves the hall of fame. The amount of punishment he took is unbelievable and it's the little spots he does which he doesn't need to but did because it made the match better and got a pop from the crowd that i love the most, the suplex onto the edge of the steel steps for example.

I love the street fight with HHH at RR 2000, just a great brawl which made HHH look amazing and Foley look crazy, I will always prefer this to the Orton one simply because it felt that much more intense imo.

I enjoyed the Mind Games match with Michaels a lot more than I have done in the past, Foley's character work is pretty phenomenal here and him and Michaels have really good chemistry.

His match with Vader from WCW Saturday Night is a great little TV match, Vader is brutal and Foley places the face role brilliantly, real gem of a match

Hell in a Cell with Undertaker is just special, the two falls from the cage add a lot to the match but they don't MAKE the match for me, the majority of the match is very good especially when you think what a mess Foley was in.

Overall a great way to spend a few hours, Foley is probably the wrestler I respect most in the world, someone who gave everything to the business but didn't overstay his welcome. A truly amazing creative mind and also one of the best talkers in history

Don't forget Chris Benoit. He could lose even by tap out and still get a standing ovation afterward.

These two delivered a good match. The entire match was "spot, wait for count, set up spot, repeat" but that's what you're going to get from a Last Man Standing match.
I wouldn't say so. Maybe the end stretch but that is, like you said, true to all LMS matches.

3/4 for this match. It's made me a fan of Del Rio.

I really need to watch more of Raw in 2004. The nostalgia factor of Evolution ruling Raw is brimming.
