Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

In the meantime, I'll throw in two other shows I've already watched before, and is still well fresh in my memory:

Unforgiven 2006:
Morrison/Jeff: ***1/2
Kane/Umaga: **3/4
Spirit Squad/Highlanders: **1/2
DX/McMahons & Show: ***3/4
Lita/Trish: ***3/4
Orton/Carlito: ***1/2
Edge/Cena: ****1/2

Armageddon 2006:
Kane/MVP: **1/4
Ladder Match: ****3/4
Boogeyman/Miz: 1/2*
Benoit/Chavo: ***
Helms/Yang: **3/4
Taker/Kennedy: ***1/2
Cena & Batista/Booker & Finlay: **

Armageedon is a very good show. Some solid/decent matches like Taker/Kennedy, Kane/MVP and Benoit/Chavo, but the real must-watch on this one is the 4-Way Ladder Match. Unforgiven is just plain superb. Not a single bad match on a terrific card, with Edge/Cena being one of the greatest TLC Matches in history. Best PPV of 06 here.

1 - Unforgiven
2 - WM 22
3 - No Mercy
4 - Armageddon
5 - New Year's Revolution
6 - SummerSlam



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

MARKING FOR:
Daniel Bryan | Bad News Barrett | Dean Ambrose | Damien Sandow | Sami Zayn | Kevin Steen | Solomon Crowe | Austin Aries | Kota Ibushi | Kenny Omega | William Regal | Bayley | Renee Young | YOSHIHIKO - The greatest dummy wrestler of all the times | Anything DDT tbh, especially the Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship matches

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I need to crack on with my 06 project. Did SD a couple of years ago, half way into Raw now. Interested to see what I think of UF overall since I don't think much to the TLC match (*** at best) and on paper Morrison Vs Hardy sounds sucky as shit . JD is probably the best 06 PPV for me atm, but yeah, still need to finish the Raw side of things (and ECW, but I know their PPV won't exactly rank high ).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah Edge vs John-Boy doesn't do much for me either. I've always had a place in my heart for the Hell in a Cell match though. Recall Orton getting a busted lip b/c Carlito botched a moonsault. What a twat. Thankfully Orton owned him in grand fashion to win. Still can't believe Orton was booked to work vs Carlito on PPV

Nowadays I can believe it since he sucks. But back in 2006? WHY?

Armageddon is a pretty good show. Horrible crowd though. And I'm not sold on Taker vs Kennedy. Taker's assault at the end is fun, but that's only b/c I loathe Kennedy and a beatdown by Taker is about the best thing to witness. Not much from the match, imo.

Randy Orton vs. Mick Foley - Intercontinental Championship Match (Hardcore Rules) - Backlash 2004


The match itself was great. Randy took some nice bumps, and I was shocked as hell seeing him get thrown in the tacks. This match proved to me that Randy Orton could be something huge in the future. The story of the match was great, as Orton was the punk kid who spit in the face of Foley's awhile ago, and Foley was out for revenge. Orton had to prove himself to Foley during the match, and had to play by Foley's rules. Once Orton did that, it allowed him to pick up the win. ****1/2

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Royal Rumble 2006:
CW Open: ***
Mickie/Ashley: DUD
JBL/Boogeyman: DUD
RR Match: ***3/4
Edge/Cena: **1/2
Angle/Henry: DUD

And because I watched it a couple of days ago as well:
No Way Out 2006:
CW Open: ***1/4
JBL/Lashley: **1/2
MNM/Matt & Tatanka: ***
Booker/Benoit: ***1/2
Rey/Orton: ****
Angle/Taker: ****3/4

No Way Out is absolutely terrific. I had forgot about how good it actually was, given that I said Unforgiven was the best PPV of 06. It's almost as good, Hell it might just be better than Unforgiven overall. JBL/Lashley was much better than it had any right to be, all the other midcard matches are solid/great, and Angle/Taker is 2006 MOTY. Because I can't really decide, I'm gonna tie Unforgiven and NWO as the two best PPV's of 06. Royal Rumble, since I had already seen the RR Match and Edge/Cena, I gave a look at all the rest... oh dear. Terrible PPV here. RR Match and CW Open are good, Edge/Cena is average... the rest is not even worth talking about.

1 - TIE: Unforgiven
1 - TIE: No Way Out
3 - WM 22
4 - No Mercy
5 - Armageddon
6 - New Year's Revolution
7 - SummerSlam
8 - Royal Rumble

Not a good year for the big 4 PPV's at all. WM was great, but SSlam and RR are big time letdowns. Only one more Big 4 PPV left from 06, that is Survivor Series. Thoughts on that show?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Survivor Series is TRASH. If you hated Angle vs Henry from Rumble enough to give that a DUD (don't agree with that one bit, personally) then you'll no doubt have to hand out a DUD to nearly every match on that show. It's bad. You know it sucks when Chavo Guerrero & a squash match are the best matches on the show.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Lita's retirement is probably the most remembered moment of Survivor Series 06. That just speaks on how unmemorable the rest must be. (I've only seen Benoit/Chavo and it was okay)

I honestly don't remember about Survivor Series '06, couldn't even tell you a single match on that card.
