Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

SummerSlam 2001

Lance Storm vs. Edge - ***1/2
Spike Dudley & The APA vs. Test & The Dudley Boyz - *
X-Pac vs. Tajiri - **1/2
Rhyno vs. Chris Jericho - ***
Jeff Hardy vs. Rob Van Dam - ***
Diamond Dallas Page & Chris Kanyon vs. The Undertaker & Kane - **
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Kurt Angle - ****1/2
Booker T vs. The Rock - ***3/4

Whilst I enjoyed the Invasion at the time, looking back, it was miserable as fuck. Sure, the guys they had were able to put on decent/good matches but, that was it. The story line sucked. DDP was undeservedly jobbed out to Undertaker when he could have been another one of the 'big WCW guys' which the Alliance was lacking. Also, the Alliance thing sucked, ECW really shouldn't have been in this story and if they HAD to be put into it, they could have been made a separate threat or, they could have paired up with Vince since Heyman did get help from Vince financially and they both hated WCW.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Finished watching Cesaro/Orton from Main Event a few hours ago. A decent match and it's nice to see a fresh match-up get a lot of time. Really enjoyed it and although I hate the Shield's interference, it worked in protecting both men. ★★★¼.

Next up: Show/Taker NM08

Yep. They seem to be keen on resigning Brock for another year. Hope he spends this year in a few fresh match-ups against the likes of Bryan, Sheamus and most importantly, Orton. IF he resigns. That way, they should have Rock/Cena II and Taker/Lesnar this year and do Rock/Lesnar & Taker/Cena next year.

Shima/Danielson matches.

Would absolutely kill to see Bryan/Lesnar have a match. Bryan works that kind of match so well and Lesnar is awesome at being the aggressor.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bryan/Lesnar would probably be able to easily surpass the Lesnar/Mysterio matches if booked correctly and given sufficient time. As said Bryan's a master of working from the bottom, bumping like a madman and timing his comebacks and submissions in a believeable manner and Lesnar is underrated in his ability to sell a guy as a bigger threat than he anticipated whilst still wrestling and looking like the baddest man on the planet.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched the 04 RR. Good god the undercard is atrocious. On my CAL SCALE its a 1.5, with just the RR match to go . That'll bump it up a fair bit so it won't be the worst RR event ever, but still lol. 5 matches, 1.5.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bryan going for those No Locks late in the TLC match against The Shield was fucking epic. His comebacks in that match were great.

I feel like the WWE section would act like Lesnar/Bryan would be a horrible idea and then end up eating their words on it.

He released one from No Lock, put another in it, then released him and tried to apply the No Lock to the third member only to eventually eat a fucking steel chair to the mouth

The KICKS back and forth before the Blackout were awesome too. Crowd went wild during Bryan's attempted comebacks.

Ambrose is scary as fuck with a chair in his hand. Some of his shots from that match were nasty.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bryan/Henry was amazing and further showed how well Bryan can make himself look a believeable threat when he times his offence as well as he does. Of course Henry is a special worker who knows how to sell enough to look beatable and create tension whilst still carrying that air of supremacy that makes Bryan or any smaller opponent a sympathetic underdog.

The WWE idiots would probably moan its unrealistic for Bryan to be wrestling Lesnar for 10 minutes, whilst remaining oblivious to how he wrestled Mysterio, Hardy and other smaller guys in his first run and how wrestling is based on the suspension of disbelief and the characters pulling you into situations and getting you to care about the result. Bryan countering the F5 or Kimura lock into a submission and seeing Lesnar sell the pain and struggle to escape before brutalising Bryan to the point where he can't continue would make Brock look monstrous whilst getting Bryan over even more as a tough bastard.

Forget to mention, Ambrose's facial expressions in the No Lock were outstanding. Looked like he was screaming in agony but letting his pride stop him from giving up, like a psycho in pain but who's fighting for his life to overcome the pain long enough for his partners to assist him.
