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.

Nothing offensively bad, but nothing grand.

Wrote about it elsewhere months back:
Yeah, I kinda over-exaggerated by calling it the greatest match I ever saw. But damn did that match leave me wanting more. Rarely do I feel that way regarding matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

There's a lot of people calling Benoit/Angle a top WWE match, it's not an uncommon thing at all. Shit, how many people in this thread alone think it's top ten? Sure to be five people, maybe? Probably. I wouldn't have it top 100+, but I've always thought it was very good. Another one of those 'haven't watched in years' matches, though. I'd be surprised if I didn't like it on my next watch of it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well my rating has most definitely changed for Angle/Benoit. Up or down? You'll find out when I post it on my blog in 2 days time . 2001 RR went on today, 2002 tomorrow, 2003 the day after .

Using my new and improved CAL SCALE, the 2003 RR event has a total of 3.5 points. Just got the RR match to go.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Damn, now I REALLY gotta watch Taker/Trips from KOTR. Sounds like a classic waiting to be seen. It's a habit for me to read about how bad a certain match is here and then go on and watch it despite being advised not to. It wasn't that bad of an experience with Taker/Boss Man and Khali/Batista (Punjabi Prison), so I'll surely find some humor in Taker/HHH unless it's going to be the boooooooooooring type like Batista/JBL GAB 05 or HHH/HBK HIAC.

And Benoit/Angle RR03 is definitely a ★★★★★ match for me. Top 5 for sure if not #1.

It was a good match for Khali standards. Short and to the point. They utilized the "prison" well enough and the ending was all kinds of awesome. (Batista's jump... ) ★★ for me.
