Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Jeff's work was the driving force as to why I loved his match vs Triple H from No Mercy 2008.

If it would have been anyone else, I don't think it would have been as special as it turned out to be. Trips was great in his role, but Jeff's work in that match was on point in every aspect that it needed to be.

Definitely thought Hunter was the better guy in the HHH/Hardy matches. Not saying Jeff got carried or anything but Trips controlled the pacing and structure of the matches brilliantly as the experienced champion.

Me too. No Mercy '08 gets the praise it deserves but the Cyber Sunday rematch and Armageddon '07 are often overlooked.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'll firmly disagree and be alone in it too. I know it was Hardy that made it for me b/c I loved it. When Triple H works vs an opponent I'm not feeling, the match is generally shit. The only major exception I can think of is vs Batista from Vengeance 2005. Which he was the driving force behind and gave Batista just about his best non-Undertaker match of his entire career. Everything else I think of that's great from him it was a lot on his opponent that made it for me. I think the only times it was give or take from both for me was his work in 2000 that wasn't against Foley. Especially against Rock. Those fed off each other brilliantly. Have to relive the match vs Benoit again.

Far and away I can count too many blah Triple H matches where he's supposedly meant to be the driving force behind it. Everything vs Randy Orton comes to mind. Only fits since I'm watching the garbage WrestleMania 25 main event atm.

Is Armageddon the triple threat w/Edge? That match is fun as hell.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Every Trips-Jeff match is awesome, and that includes the triple threat

I understand what you mean Cody..... Trips as a driving force in a match can be somewhat tedious unless it's a gimmick match, he's usually awesome in 9 out of 10 of those (there are exceptions ; see BASH 09).

Or maybe it's just the fact that it's TRIPS-ORTON and that they have some very, very bad chemistry most of the time





"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

Nah, it's just HHH/Hardy. For number one contendership if I remember correctly. Trips is great as the overconfident veteran. Jeff wins with a jackknife pin counter to the Pedigree.

I wish Jeff had won the title from Hunter in one final singles match in '08 instead of the triple threat with Edge.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I remember the jackknife pin counter victory. What was the finish to Cyber Sunday? Maybe I'm getting the matches confused. I know Hunter countered the Swanton into a pin in one of them.

Also, Cesaro's throw + Swiss Death to Orton on Main Event was impressive.

Swanton into a pin was No Mercy. Cyber Sunday was an awesome Pedigree where HHH pretty much dragged Jeff off the top rope and hit it in one motion.
