Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, twas me that mentioned Punk was a little iffy with some selling during certain parts. For the most part he was good, but he could have been better .

Speaking of could have been better, the 1999 RR. What a load of shite that was. Thoughts on my BLOG~! Shame that the hottest period of the company gave us some of the worst matches, TV shows and PPV events ever.

Yeah, 1999 also produced the worst Survivor Series in living memory. Seems like they did the opposite of modern day WWE in producing great weekly television but putting out awful PPVs.

1999 was the worst year of the Attitude Era, by far. 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002 FTW, though. Sadly, I think I'd still take shitty 1999 over 2012. At least in 1999 more than 2-3 guys had an angle to be in. But I get what you're saying about '99. Scarily enough, as bad as WWF was in 1999, WCW was even worse. Waaay worse, haha.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You absolutely do. It comes with high praise from a lot. Though as I said, I think it comes down to whether you can look past the basic and simple action and appreciate the greater story and the build, pacing and eventual payoff to that story in terms of enjoying the match. It isn't your recent standard LMS built around a number of big spots, which for me only adds to its charm.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, I've grown weary of recent LMS matches so this sounds like a refreshing change of pace. Excited to give it a watch. Is the link you posted on the last page of this thread the complete match?

2002 wasn't AE . Plus Raw sucked .

I'd put 98 in with 99 as being a terrible fucking year. Started off good, then after WM is went to shits. 99 started shit but got better in the last couple of months (almost like they got a new head writer...).

WCW 99 was definitely bad, but honestly I can sit through those shows a hell of a lot easier than WWF in 99, just because WCW is HILARIOUSLY bad. Flair in a mental home while still running WCW is incredible (Triple A as his assistant ), Steiner goes full blown insane, and some other shit I can't remember off the top of my head.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Last week was a good week match-wise for WWE with Punk/Ryback, Sheamus/Ziggler and Show/Del Rio. I'm actually looking forward to watching Raw tonight which is unusual for me. Usually just skip all the crap and watch the matches you guys pimp. Road to Mania has raised my interest I guess.

The "I Quit" Match between Rock and Mankind might be my favorite I Quit match of all time, but yeah everything else on that show sucked.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah this is the second Raw in a row that I'm pumped for. Unfortunately, I only watched the beginning (Cena/Ziggler) and the end (TLC + Rock/Punk promo) of the show since the rest sounded like pure shit. Hopefully tonight has some storyline enhancement and solid matches to go with the nostalgia trip.
