Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Be interesting to see his earlier work in comparison to his coming of age between 09-11. Feels like he always had that ability but never got a chance to showcase it with how he was positioned as well as being heel for virtually his entire career, which whilst being better for him character wise is bad for the fans because he's infinitely better working from beneath and selling his arse off than he is dictating the pace and controlling a match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Starting a 2007 PPV project now that I'm done with 06...

New Year's Revolution 2007:
Jeff/Morrison: ***1/4
Tag Turmoil: ***
Mickie/Victoria: *
Flair/Kenny: *1/2
Rated RKO/DX: ***3/4
Carlito/Masters: *1/2
Cena/Umaga: **3/4

This was pretty decent I'd say. Rated RKO/DX was much, much better than the Cyber Sunday and Survivor Series matches and one of the best Tag matches of 07 (there were many great as far as I can remember). Jeff/Morrison was a good Cage Match, and Cena/Umaga and the Tag Turmoil were decent too. Nothing below *, which is already a step above pretty much all of the 06 PPV's except Unforgiven and NWO.



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

The match you should be concerned about is Christian vs Benoit a couple of weeks after WM21. That was just awesome barring Edge's constant rambling on commentary.

And from the first Raw of 05, the Batista/Benoit & Orton/Trips matches rule. There's also a decent Orton match with Flair the week before Royal Rumble.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Royal Rumble 2007:
Hardys/MNM: ***1/2
Lashley/Test: 1/4*
Batista/Kennedy: **3/4
Cena/Umaga: ****1/2
RR Match: ****1/2

An average undercard that is still miles superior than most of the previous Rumble undercards, and two ****1/2 matches. Can't go wrong here.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Awesome blog posts Cal! Yes, I will acknowledge you have a blog. I also marked when Undertaker returned at Rumble '03 and how JR called it. Love the tease in the 04 one too. Undertaker has had some good Rumble appearances in 07-09 matches. I want him to start a feud with Cena at this year's Rumble match but I know WWE won't do it.

I watched the 05 Rumble PPV too and I enjoyed it not quite as much as you did but it was a well rounded card from beginning to end and that was one entertaining Rumble match.


Much gratitude to
CHAMPviaDQ

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching Disc 3 of the Undertaker: Tombstone Dvd set, starting with the Fully Loaded '99 first blood match vs Stone Cold, great brawl, one of my faves tbh.

Would love to see more Ministry era promos released too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think Cena/Undertaker will happen in Wrestlemania XXX. That way it also feels more historic as the huge main event. This year they can have Cena beat The Rock (preferably with a heel turn) to reestablish himself as a threat after having lost so much in the past couple of years and Brock can challenge the streak. Other than the Brock match, not a single win for Cena has meant anything. But he's lost several high profile matches such as the main event of WM27 against The Miz, MITB with Punk, the briefcase cash-in and of course WM28 against The Rock. No one cares but he also lost his Survivor Series streak too this year.

My road to WM22 begins now, any thoughts on the RVD/HHH/Show three way for the #1 contender spot at WM? It's coming up soon.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching Taker/HHH - WM17

I've always loved this match, another great brawl with excellent spots all over the arena, not sure it gets talked about much, seen it ranked quite low but lists at least **** for me.

Also lol at the Taker ref bump for the last two matches!! Also loved the build promo for the match as I forgot how the fued began with Taker returning and all...
