Fuck, why is it so hard for me to finish watching No Way Out? Had to rewind Benoit/Booker & Rey/Orton about 3 times just because I fell asleep during the middle portion and somehow woke up for the finish. But it's cool now, I'm on the main event and no longer feeling sleepy, ha.

I have the same issue with the show. I always want to right a review on it so I keep starting at the beginning. I've seen that stupid CW opener like 4 times now and I've never made it more than halfway through the card... I know I've seen the Undetaker/Angle match though. Pretty sure I just gave in and skipped the rest of the card.

Also I just finished Disc 2 of Savage's set. It's been fucking awesome. It might take a while to get done with Disc 3 though as I'm heading back to Philly for school on Monday. But expect a massive review from me in the near future. All I have to say so far is that Flair/Savage from WM 8 is the best thing ever.

I can answer that question: the crowd is awful and the show has a plodding flow to it. The matches aren't bad minus the boring Benoit vs Booker match, but it takes a lot of attention to focus on the show until the final two matches, imo. It's why I don't hold the show in as high regard as others. It's completely solid with two great main events, only it has that slight stigma to it.

Damn fans.

Don't get me wrong. The show itself was awesome, it's just a trend with me. It was around 3 AM and on numerous occasions, I've fallen asleep during a match because I've been too tired to keep my eyes open. Now it's review time!

No Way Out 2006:

Cruiserweight 9-Way - ★★★
- A highly entertaining, fast paced match with lots of wrestlers doing their thing cruiserweight style. Serves its purpose as the match to warm up the crowd from the beginning and it gets enough time to make it work. Gregory Helms retains in a heelish way by stealing somebody else's pin. I also like how he's treated as the outsider that keeps overcoming the odds.

JBL vs Bobby Lashley - ★★¾
- Much better than I would've expected it to be. Bradshaw is good when he's in control and Lashley is also pretty good when he makes his comeback, then Finlay interferes and causes Lashley to suffer his first one-on-one pinfall loss since his debut.

Matt Hardy/Tatanka vs MNM - ★★½
- Just a random tag match and not really much else. I liked it for what it was, but it's still the low-point of the show which is a good thing and tells you just how good this PPV is.

Chris Benoit vs Booker T - ★★★¾
- Now it's on to the main events, starting off with the US Championship match. With 18 minutes, they get a lot of time to work with and as usual, their chemistry shines. Benoit's performance is on point as usual and Booker keeps up despite having not wrestled (on TV anyways) for several months. The finish comes in unique fashion when Benoit gets Booker locked in the Sharpshooter but switches quickly to the Crossface for the submission victory. GREAT match!

Randy Orton vs Rey Mysterio - ★★★★
- Eddie's death being exploited aside, this is awesome. Orton is just a wonderful heel and this is pretty much his match. Throughout the time it lasts, he shines with the cocky facial expressions, the painful methodical work on Rey and his cheating ways. This is pretty much textbook on how to be a heel in a match. Constant work on the arm with some tough spots such as the "swing" of Rey's arm into the ringpost (after Rey comes off the apron for a Senton that Orton catches) and whenever Rey tries to gain momentum, Orton slows him down with stuff like an eye rake. Orton ducks a 619 in the end and rolls Rey up using the ropes for the victory which gains him the Wrestlemania main event spot for the World Title match. It is pretty much rendered useless when Rey is put in the title match again the week after, though.

Kurt Angle vs Undertaker - ★★★★★
- This match officially joins my exclusive 5 star club. Great work from both men. Angle works on the ankle throughout and Taker sells it perfectly. Forgot how hot the crowd was also. Doesn't quite reach that other level until the finishing stretch, though. So many awesome counters and nearfalls. Not much to say that hasn't already been said. If you haven't seen this match already, do yourself a favor and give it a watch. Angle turns a Triangle Choke into a roll-up for the victory and this comes to an end after 30 amazing minutes!

Overall Rating: ★★★★ out of ★★★★★ (Don't know about others, but I loved this PPV and not a single match falls into the "bad" category. Crowd was alright and got better when the main events rolled through. And speaking of the main events, all three of them are GREAT matches.)

I struggled to get through it. Not in the mood to watch it again pardon the last two matches for a while.

On a side note - these WWE Superstars from 2010 rock. Already have about 5 Regal gems without even getting to the Goldust matches yet. Regal vs Bourne was something else for a sub 5 minute contest.

I'm a big fan of the Cena/Batista series as well, or at least I was last time I saw it.

for one of the greatest matches in WrestleMania history.

I love pretty much everything about this match from the fury Savage brings to Flair for his mind games with Elizabeth, to Flair working on Savage's legs, the pacing & timing is perfect, and their chemistry had never been better. The false finishes were built and executed so well in a way that has me on the edge of my seat over two decades later. It gets **** 1/2 from me.

Flair/Savage is probably in my top 25 WWE matches ever. Adore it.

Same here. Wrestlemania VIII in general is one of my favorite shows ever due to Flair/Savage and Hart/Piper stealing the show. The post match promos from both Flair and Savage are some of the greatest of all time. Seriously can't wait to get to MANIA EIGHT, I just have to blow through two to seven first

... AAAANDDD Two sucks as of now.
