Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I actually re-watched every RAW, SD and PPV back in 2010 and I can't recall that Taker/Trips match all. Well, I'd like to think that I (apparently) did a good job of erasing its existence from my mind.

Of course you've never seen it. Nobody has. It didn't happen.

STOP TALKING ABOUT IT.

Watching Angle/Benoit RR 03 atm. Had to quit watching the event last night after HHH/Steiner .

Only people looking to punish themselves for a horrible misdeed in the past should actively check that match out, knowing full well what awaits them.

Andy will become a devout straight edge man and vivalabrave will make a post on this forum before that match gets any recognition as being anything above awful.

Angle vs Benoit at Royal Rumble 2003 was quite possibly the greatest match that I ever seen. The ovation Benoit got after the match was wonderful. Probably Angle's best match as well.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh shit .

Erm, its good but I'm not in the 'contender for best match in company history' camp. Benoit's desperation and story carries a lot of emotional investment, but truth be told last time I saw it I was just legit bored and didn't find much at all great about it. Nothing offensively bad, but nothing grand.

Wrote about it elsewhere months back:

Quote:
Finally rewatced this, a clear nomination for anyone who enjoys this style but I'm past the point where I can appreciate this as a top 100 match. I actually may have even liked it slightly less than on last watch, really never felt like there was any control or structure to either man being in control, Benoit's transition into a brief FIP really felt like Angle had just figured 'enough of that, now I'll dominate' and they entered into the dual Germans and finishing stretch much earlier than I remembered. One thing I adored in the Benoit/Regal match from Velocity was how they established a parity between both men but put over the respective submissions as the match ender, seeing Benoit have a good 3 crossfaces on Angle for a good portion of time before being countered was really disheartening, countering the move before it can be fully locked on would work so much better in continuing the theme of parity whilst still teasing the fans as to how one man would finally lock on their move without it being countered. Pleasantly there was only 1 spot of Angle rope running and it came before that gorgeous floatover German and followup headbutt, but this was such a disappointment compared to Benoit/Finlay and Benoit/Regal and I wasn't even particularly blown away by the exchanges here. Pretty sure Benoit and Angle have delivered better hold for hold matches on TV than they did here, seemed far more of a bomb throwing match than say Wrestlemania 17 which I recall being much more mat contested.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I need to give Angle/Benoit a second watch but I wasn't high on it at all the first time I saw it. And then, I dind't even know the match had so much hype behind it.
