He should of always stayed heel. By 2008/2009 I didn't care for him at all, didn't like his tag team with Primo, and his matches with Hornswoggle were just

Miss this Carlito though:





From a match quality standpoint though, I don't remember any great Carlito matches, but I don't remember any real bad ones. I thought he was a alright in-ring talent, but I was much more invested in his character (at least when it was good from 04 to 06) than his matches. For me it's always a good character > workrate.
Carlito was AWESOME on Smackdown. His feud with John Cena definitely put him on the map. I always thought he should have been kept on Smackdown which is where he shined. Even in his tag team run with Primo, he shined on Smackdown. On Raw, they never had a clue what to do with him. It's a shame too because he could have shined on Raw as well but was never given a chance to. When he turned heel again in 2007, I saw it has a perfect opportunity for him to get elevated into the WWE title picture. Boy did they pass up a great opportunity.

WWE dropped the ball on Carlito big time. He had loads of potential but was never utilized.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

IMO they have great chemistry and they had a good spotfest

UF isn't all about the TLC Match though. I really enjoyed the HIAC match too, as well as Lita/Trish, Orton/Carlito and Jeff/Morrison (it has great psychology before you ask )

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You like the TLC match. I cannot take you opinion seriously with matches like Hardy/Morrison and Carlito/Orton .

But seriously, I'd have to watch UF before I can really say which is better. But not liking the main event will likely mean I wouldn't think it was better than NWO regardless of the undercard.

Cal, I don't see why you don't like the TLC Match, but I too love Taker/Angle and Rey/Orton, my consideration for NWO is growing every waking minute
Crowd did crap on it. No worries, it still was good. ***1/2.

My answer on the NWO or Unforgiven 2006 debate is this - Unforgiven has the more favorable undercard for me, but NWO has two great main events that I say trump everything on Unforgiven. Think I'd prefer HIAC over Orton/Mysterio by a hair, but Undertaker vs Angle tops it all. Don't like the TLC much either, so there you go.

TLC ~ ***
HIAC ~ ***3/4 (a rewatch could change, I do love the match no matter what)
Orton vs Mysterio ~ ***3/4
Undertaker vs Angle ~ ****1/2

So curve wise it goes towards NWO. Even though the undercard was only solid at best and I hated Benoit/Booker and FUCK that crowd. They were only there to cheer Orton and go APE for Undertaker vs Angle.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You dislike the TLC Match. I can't take your opinion seriously either

JK, indeed it really comes down to the undercard between the two and I'd like to say UF has the better undercard, but NWO is just that damn good as well... fuck it, NWO is best PPV of 06 as of now

Kinda dissapointed by Regal/Finlay at TGAB, as expected

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I am big fan of Finlay/Regal.

GAB card was screwed over by a bunch of people having "elevated enzymes" and couldn't compete. I have no idea what that is or why it prevented them from wrestling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, Regal vs Finlay delivered. A bad crowd can't hurt a match that good.

Lashley actually made sense on that PPV for once. Didn't understand why he couldn't work. Still to this day we all wonder that too. Not like they were ill or incapable of actually working a match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm not sure if Lashley's presence would bring a lot to an otherwise very solid (but dissapointing thanks to a terrible crowd) match between two of the in-ring greatest ever, but I agree in that I see no reason why he couldn't work the PPV.

Same for Khali - for once in a lifetime, I'd actually take his presence in the Punjabi Prison Match with Taker over Big Show's.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Looked up what the fuck elevated enzymes could mean and found this:

The most common cause of high enzyme levels are medications, such as statin drugs used to control cholesterol and over-the-counter pain medications, including acetaminophen. Other common causes are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and obesity.

So I guess WWE were just being careful by pulling them off the card until they determined exactly what the cause was.
