When was the last time you saw it? Because I absolutely HATED it live and then again a few years ago when I bought the Anthology set. Changed my mind on quite a few matches over the RR's so far lol.

Honestly, only a few months ago so it's fresh. I was waiting for it to end about 5 minutes in.

Bah, you suck!

Rock/Jericho isn't holding up nearly as well as I would have liked.

Nah.

I liked Jericho/Rock. Although it was their easy pick for weakest match, imo. From No Mercy - onward their matches kept decreasing.

Used to be my favourite of their series. Still think Vengeance is their worst tbh.

Vengeance surprisingly held up for me. Not a fan of the interference, but I guess No Mercy technically had some too & Rumble's finish is ULTRA dirty so it comes with the territory.

No Mercy is where it is at for me. Reaction when Jericho wins + JR freaking out.

NM is definitely their best match. I recall a really good match on Raw in 2000 too.

Sorry to go back to a topic from a few pages back but I think these last couple of year's worth of WWE PPV matches have been overlooked due to the somewhat low quality of Raw (I still enjoy Raw but it can be bad sometimes). I will say that watching Raw from 1998, there have been a good number of shows that have been much better than most of the stuff from 2011 and 2012. However when it comes to PPVs. Nothing I've seen from 96, 97 or 98 (up until Unforgiven) really touches what we have seen in 2011 and 2012. WM 14 is one of the very few good shows I've seen from those few years.

The show quality isn't my main point though. I'm talking match quality. I think I've only seen about 4 or 5 good matches from that time on PPV, whereas we have had tons in the last two years. Almost every PPV in 2011 and 2012 had a match worthy of ***1/2 or more.

Just felt like saying that because a lot of people here say that the last two years have been really bad. I can understand when talking about Raw because it hasn't been great. But when it comes to PPV matches, WWE have had a great couple of years.

Yeah match quality overall had improved a SHIT TON over the years from the likes of the mid-90's. Back then the main events were usually the only matches worth watching, with terrible undercards. While WCW at the same time usually had good undercards and god awful main events lol.

Oh yeah, that's the common theme.

Attitude Era aka 1998 & 1999 = great entertainment & quality TV.
Modern Era aka 2011 - 2012 = hit or miss entertainment, with blah TV and pretty darn good PPVs.

The switch off with their positives and negatives. Granted even some bad Attitude Era PPVs can be fun only b/c of the nostalgia factor + general entertainment from the characters that were about.
