Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If we're talking all time and not just in this decade, then Backlund/Slaughter from 1981 would still probably be my pick for best Cage match in company history. If we're just focusing on 2000-2012 though, that seems like a pretty choice top 3 with very little else sticking out. Eddie/JBL I think gets some praise, but not top 3 praise. Eddie/Rey was disappointing compared to the heights of their prior work. Can't think of much else, Flair/Orton, Edge/Jericho, Jericho/Christian. None are really standing out as being close to the top 3 Saint Dick mentioned.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well, Hardy vs Edge & Punker vs Hardy top HHH vs Flair for me. Off the top of my head, yeah, I'd slate those as the 3 best. If not my 3 favorite easily.

I might have to travel WAY back in the older years to find a cage match that I could possibly think is better. I know I loved Owen vs Bret. Not everyone is keen on it though. I'm probably to blah atm to really give it my full attention and due diligence.

Never seen Backlund/Slaughter and I don't remember liking Bret/Owen very much.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Best cage from WWE goes to Edge/Matt Hardy fairly easily for me, although Flair/HHH was awesome as well. Amazing that they happened within a few weeks of each other.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I agree with whoever said Jeff Hardy is underrated. Did somebody say that? Well, that's what I think anyway. Thing is, when Hardy is bad, he is really, really fucking bad. His match w/ Angle in 2010 was all time shit level and even if he was the better man in it, the match was all time shit level and he didn't even come near "good" in it. That isn't the only awful Hardy match, but his run from 06-09 is enjoyable and he was a very good wrestler for a lot of it. I hate the criticism that Hardy is a spot monkey, because that's really not true. Or....not ALWAYS true.

Wow I don't remember anything about Edge/Matt. I'll add that to the list. Love HHH/Flair as I was there for it live.

WWE No Way Out 2003


1) Chris Jericho vs Jeff Hardy ~ ***


2) World Tag Team Championship
William Regal & Lance Storm(c) vs Kane & Rob Van Dam ~ ***


3) WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Billy Kidman(c) vs Matt Hardy ~ ***


4) The Undertaker vs Big Show ~ ***3/4


5) Handicap Match
Brock Lesnar & Chris Benoit vs Kurt Angle, Shelton Benjamin, & Charlie Haas ~ ***


6) World Heavyweight Championship
Triple H(c) vs Scott Steiner ~ DUD


7) Steve Austin vs Eric Bischoff ~ N/R


8) Hulk Hogan vs The Rock ~ DUD



And this was such a well rounded show until HHH/Steiner & Rock/Hogan showed up. Undertaker vs Big Show is a must. GREAT.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

HHH/Flair is the greatest WWF/WWE cage match of all time. Runners up would be ;

- Backlund/Slaughter
- Hardy/Edge
- Punk/Hardy
- Bryan/Henry

That's my top five right there. It's crazy because for perhaps the most used gimmick match ever, IMO there hasn't been a single cage match over **** 1/4 , whereas there has been only 26 HIAC matches and there's been like five I'd put at **** 1/2+. It's weird as fuck.





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Jeff had some good matches but I can't think of any great matches where he's the better worker.
