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.

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.

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.

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.

Jim Duggan vs Buzz Sawyer, Dog Collar Chain Match, Mid South (12/27/85)

Manly, manly match albeit a step down from their absolutely stellar 11/11/85 encounter I watched yesterday. Duggan once again continues to prove he deserves to be remembered for being more than a comedy wrestler by putting in a great maniacal babyface performance and throwing some great punches which Sawyer bumped for tremendously. Like Valentine/Piper both men lay in some tough shots with the chain and Sawyer utilises it especially well to survive Duggan's onslaught, such as crotching Duggan with the chain as well as wrapping it around his eyes to try and withstand the beating. The brawling wasn't as terrific as the last match but there was still a lot to appreciate about their chemistry here, namely Duggan who really was such a great fired up babyface and his comeback punch combo was a thing of Jerry Lawler esque beauty. Really dug the finish as well with Sawyer being beaten mercilessly and looking like a tough resilient SOB for surviving so long albeit appearing to only be delaying the inevitable, only for him to grab a chair and smash it over Duggan's head and score the victory he never looked like getting. Mid South baby.


Bill Dundee vs Sweet Brown Sugar, Scaffold Match, Memphis (6/21/82)



Jesus christ, not just the greatest scaffold match of all time but a legit wonderful match in its own right. Proof of the undeniable talent of Bill Dundee and Koko Ware to make a scaffold match, arguably one of the most limited gimmick matches wonderfully enthralling and filled with drama and long term build and deliver a great match. Lance Russell brings up Dundee's construction and circus background as being a factor in that he doesn't fear heights and Dundee more than proves it with some horrifying feats of athleticism such as using the the scaffold as a monkey bar at one point to escape Koko as well as numerous teases of a fall where he catches himself on the ladder at an awkward angle. They do basic matwork at the beginning, build to and execute each fall (first person to be knocked off the scaffold to the floor twice loses) majestically and really beat the piss out of each other on such a narrow and dangerous looking structure. Spot where Koko rolls Dundee off the scaffold, hooking his legs at the last second to stay on and Dundee springing onto the nearby ladder at a dangerous pace was the spot of the match and made for a scary visual as it looked for sure Dundee was a goner. Teasing and deliverance of the final fall is worked brilliantly and leads to a legit broken wrist for the victim according to reports. Just an insane, smart and wonderfully orchestrated match which somehow breaks down the limitations of the scaffold and utilises the structure to heighten the drama and emotion and make for an enthralling match. One of the finest spectacles I've ever watched.
