Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is it weird that I put Eddie vs JBL as number one even though I rank both Benoit vs HHH vs Michaels matches at 5 stars?

b/c idc. :generico

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a huge fan if the Eddie/JBL trilogy. Judgement Day is the best of the 3 by far but I think I rated them all at at least ***3/4

Eddie/Rey from Smackdown 2004 is pure SEX!

That sort of shit is the reason I don't use star ratings anymore. I think I'd have HHH/HBK/Benoit I over Eddie/JBL, but not by a whole lot.

2004 top 5 off the top of my head:

1. Triple H v Chris Benoit v Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania XX
2. Eddie Guerrero v JBL - Judgment Day
3. Randy Orton v Mick Foley - Backlash
4. Brock Lesnar v Eddie Guerrero - No Way Out
5. Chris Benoit v Triple H v Shawn Michaels - Backlash

Speaking of '04, who's the WOTY? Benoit or Guerrero?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'll still use them, but fuck me does it get contradictory.

Benoit or Guerrero? Both. Don't think I could pick, honestly. Granted I believe I could name a few more Benoit matches that were better than Eddie. That's only b/c of Benoit's opponent being better. Eddie was stuck on Smackdown after all. Their roster in 2004 wasn't exactly their best. I'm sticking with giving both the honors.

I'll always look at 2004 for being their year + the year The Undertaker did about shit all too. Did he have a single good match that year? I'm gearing up to give the Heidenreich match another go, but except for that what else is there? Didn't like the JBL matches. vs Booker was average. TRASH vs Dudleys. OH. vs John-boy on Smackdown was probably is only "really good - great" match from the year. Including the Fatal Four Way from Armageddon. Eddie interactions saved that match for me. Taker's light schedule didn't help things out either.

Rumble this Sunday. Looking forward to Punk/Rock and Del Rio/Show LMS II. Fingers crossed for an appearance from BROCK.

Yeah. Benoit has the Michaels matches, Orton matches, HHH matches and a bunch of good tags to go with the WM20 and Backlash triple threats. Plus Bad Blood v Kane which is excellent and Kane's best match. Eddie was amazing that year too but Benoit just edges it for me. You're right though, he did have better opponents.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just looked up Eddie's 2004, and it's amazing how he had such a career year with all of the bad workers he was paired up with. Bashams, Luther Reigns, Mark Jindrak. Seemed as if his tag team work was his highlight from a TV perspective + adding hin his great PPV bouts.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It pains me that Benoit and Guerrero didn't have full careers.

Switching topic to the current product; I respect Cena as a worker but I'd be lying if I said his character and booking hasn't been disgusting at times. His promo tonight sucked on all levels.
