WWF Raw Is War 05/28/2001 - WWF World Championship: Stone Cold Steve Austin (w/ Vince McMahon) vs. Chris Benoit

Howard Finkle introduces the referee Earl Hebner and they booo him badly, The ref goes over some rules, and he checks the boots... old school! The two grapple into the corner, and Austin gets a few cheap kicks in. Benoit fights back with some chops. Austin regains control and drives his shoulder into Benoitís ribs multiple times. Austin goes for a clothesline, and Benoit tries to reverse it into a Crossface, but Austin knees Benoit in the ribs. Now Austin whips Benoit into the ropes and lands a knee to the ribs. Stone Cold covers, but Benoit kicks out at two. Now Benoit is up and cracks Austin with some more violent chops . Now both men jockey for a pinfall, but Benoit rolls into a Crossface! Austin inches over to the ropes, and grabs a hold of them. Action spills to the outside now, and Benoit rams Austin into the announce table. Now Austin gains control and sends Benoit into the stairs. We head back into the ring, and Benoit trips up Austin and applies a Sharpshooter! He holds it for quite a while, but Stone Cold finally makes his way to the ropes. Weíre back outside of the ring now, and Austin suplexes Benoit, and lays him out, ribs first, over the barricade. Now The Rattlesnake suplexes Benoit into the announce table, and it didnít budge. Austin tosses Benoit back into the ring, and he covers, but only for a two count. Another cover, and another two count. Austin has an abdominal strech on Benoit, and is using the ropes as leverage. The ref breaks his leverage, and Benoit lands an arm drag. Now Benoit props Austin up on the top rope, but Austin is able to fight off Benoit with a flapjack type suplex. Now Austin lands a superplex on Benoit. Austin covers, but Benoit kicks out at two! Now Austin goes for the belt, but the ref grabs it. Vince and the ref argue outside the ring, and the ref places the belt inside of the ring. Austin lands a Stunner on Benoit, but the ref is still arguing. Now Benoit is back up, and lays out Austin with the belt. He covers, and the ref counts, but Austin kicks out at two!!! Now Benoit has the Crossface on Austin, but Vince pulls the ref out of the ring, and Earl pushes Vince to the floor! Austin again is able to reach the ropes. Now Austin applies the Crossface on Benoit, and Vince calls for the bell to be rung, and for Fink to announce Austin as the winner via submission!!! Howard Finkle says Austin won by submission. Chris Jericho comes out and beats on Austin. Walls of Jericho on Austin and Benoit puts the crossface on McMahon. ***1/2 Awesome match with INSANE Canadian heat. Austin worked on the taped up ribs a lot with some brutal shit, and Benoit brought his usual vicious energy and a bunch of great nearfalls in the 12 minute match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I could go back-and-forth on that one. Hunter was the ultimate heel and Austin was so goddamn entertaining. All those matches and promos from both.

Austin, Vince and Angle crack me up every time. Especially Austin's jealousy.

WWE Championship - TLC Match
CM Punk (c) vs. Ryback
Raw 1/7/13

Before I get into the match, let me first say it really annoys me when a champion comes out first on a title match. It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand Ryback's the face and all that jazz, but I had to laugh when he came out to really no reaction. I liked how Cole made the match seem really important though, running down who or what has plagued Ryback every time.

Now onto the match. Thought it was good, but really puzzled me at times. Ryback's offense is so limited it's not even funny. I thought something was actually gonna happen when he swung Punk's body across the apron, but instead he just clobbers him with forearms. His "comeback" offense was pretty average as well. I kept asking myself, why the fuck isn't he going after the knee? Like he wasn't even thinking whatsoever and Punk "tweaked" it for no reason. The spot where Ryback charges and runs through the table was really smart on Punk's part but seriously made me LOL big time. Fuckin goof...

You really have to feel bad for Punk coming out of this because he took some really dangerous looking bumps. The flat out gorilla press drop on the ladder was ridiculous, and while the toss through the table outside was really unexpected and well done, Ryback's drop was again, pretty careless. I saw people talking about Punk's selling, were you guys talking about selling the knee? Cause I really didn't see any point in that considering Ryback never even touched it.

All in all, it's a pretty good watch with some nice drama at the end from Ryback's tease and the Shield interference, but Skip's overall shittyness bogs it down from being great and it still baffles me as to why he never went after the knee.

*** 1/4

When Austin sang 'Kumbaya' I was almost off my seat.

Flatley my dear, I don't Riverdance.

Triple H vs Undertaker Wrestlemania 17

This is kind of random and out of the blue, but I just watched Triple H/Taker WM 17. I haven't watched this match in a very long time and forgot how completely awesome it is. Brawls done the wrong way (ie most of the ones you see in current day WWE) bore me rather quickly. But this brawl was fucking epic, from a brawl-style type of match. They never once rested and kept going from start to finish. I also usually don't like when brawls go into the crowd. It usually is just punch for punch and a whole lot of idiots getting in the way. But this was different. Them going onto the camera deck and the chokeslam off the top of it was awesome, as was the follow up elbow drop. I'm completely blown away by it. If I have to watch a brawl-type match, this is the one I would want to see. Just non-stop action from bell to bell and a true sense that these two guys hated eachother. Just an awesome showdown on an awesome PPV. ****1/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

HHH/Taker at WM 17 is pretty good. I dig that match almost just as much as their WM 27 match. It probably would have been better to me if it didn't have the most longest and dumbest sell to a referee bump in history.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, it was pretty funny/weird that the ref was out that entire time they were out in the crowd. But in relation to the match and the work they did in that one, it didn't hurt the actual match to me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It should've just been a No DQ. Lol @ an elbow to the back killing the ref for over 5 minutes. A good match and on-par with WM27 but below WM28. Also Taker assaulting referees is always some of the best comedy I've seen. Always comes off so hilarious when he mercilessly holds their throat for a chokeslam or gives an extra elbow to their head just for good measure once they're out.

And all this talk of 99/2000/01. Can't wait till I've got 06/07 out of the way so I can go back and watch the whole AE. Been slowing down recently, though.
