Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's not a mediocre match by any measure, quite the opposite, but you can probably find matches that are on par with it among some random Dan Spivey vs Terry Gordy encounters floating around Youtube.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought Steamboat/Savage was good, finish definitely caught me off guard as i thought the match felt short.
Great for it's time but like C2D said it doesn't hold up with matches going forward.

Some really good WOS chain wrestling to begin, a good injection of comedy in Regal's heel in peril segment setting up him being stiff as hell on Bourne when in control and a genuinly entertaining and fun finishing stretch.

Oh Bourne, why must you be such a knob backstage pissing off management?
I legit thought about that match during Regal vs Bourne, tbhayley. It's great.

Oh hey, totally got to Dolph vs Masters last night. All I'm left with is wow. Such a gritty, but more importantly, a smart match. The counters, the evading of submissions, the general strategy of human chess played by both was something else. Certainly has risen up as one of my favorite sub 10 minute matches out there. 9:51 - can you believe that?

Masters vs McIntyre isn't until July or August I believe so unless Football gets in my way today, I'll manage to get on that soon. (did you know they had a rematch in 2011 on Superstars that was pretty awesome too?)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

For the one who asked how can I watch every PPV out there in a single day - I'm used to it

Angle/Taker '03 is one of GOAT TV matches, but there are plenty out there that I see as better, even SD matches. Austin/Benoit for example. That is a Top 10, maybe even Top 5 match of 2001, and that's a huge fucking lot.



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've watched PPV upon PPV in the span of days and didn't want to stop. It's not hard. In fact it's kind of the BEST thing to do when you have nothing to do for that day.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've watched at least 1 RR PPV every day for the last 2 weeks, along with keeping up with NINE currently weekly shows and 1 PPV this month so far (got Superstars and SMS to watch still for this week). And on top of that I watched the LOTR trilogy extended editions, currently watching The Godfather, watched the Oceans Trilogy on bluray last week too. And random episodes of random stuff I have on my PC along with a few weekly non wrestling tv shows that are currently running . And on top of that I write my video scripts, record and edit them, and work on other video projects I have lined up for the future. And yet I've still managed to fit in about 10 hours of Far Cry 3 .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Benoit and Austin running shit on every list!

I can only imagine how great it would have been if Benoit and Hunter had not been injured halfway through the year.
