**** for Cena vs Angle.

AWESOME match. Makes all of the other matches between them look worse than they really are. (b/c most of them are solid or crappy. it's a weird chemistry they have)

Eddie vs JBL Texas Bullrope is great too. No doubt. It just gets lost in the shuffle next to what they accomplished at Judgment Day. That's such a beautiful performance by both men. They tore it up in both. Can't comment on the cage as I only saw that once back when it aired.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, Angle and Cena always had good chemistry. Their No Mercy match is my favourite, with No Way Out '05 as 2nd best.

Speaking of 05, that had a lot of tremendous matches I believe. SD, Raw and PPV's were always fully loaded with lots of them.
My top 5 of that year would be like this:
1 - Angle/HBK - WM 21 - *****
2 - Angle/HBK - Vengeance - ****3/4
3 - Elimination Chamber - New Year's Revolution - ****3/4 (This PPV was the utter definition of a one-match card)
4 - Batista/HHH - Vengeance - ****3/4
5 - Eddie/Rey - SummerSlam - ****1/2

Oh, and for the fun of it...
My Top 5 of 2004:
1 - HHH/Benoit/HBK - WM 20 - *****
2 - Orton/Foley - Backlash - ****3/4
3 - HHH/Benoit/HBK - Backlash - ****3/4
4 - Eddie/Lesnar - No Way Out - ****3/4
5 - HHH/HBK - Bad Blood - ****1/2 (liked this a hell of a lot more than almost everyone else)



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

Lol, they already sold out on the Punk Bluray! Glad I ordered mine!
Thanks for the link. Just had a little look around their store and they're selling both Edge DVD's for around £7, Undertaker's Streak DVD for £9, WrestleMania 28 for £9.

Very tempted to pick up all the above plus the Punk DVD.

The cage match is really good too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Missed the earlier discussion re. Eddie vs JBL Judgement Day 2004. One of the best matches the company has ever done, arguably a top 15 candidate and forever will remain one of my most personal favourite matches. Great babyface performance from Eddie pre and post blood loss, brings the fire, passion and fury in everything he does towards JBL that gets you invested, then his bumping, selling and overally emotive performance after the chairshot just makes it impossible to not get caught up in the match and the direction the match is taking. JBL is the perfect cowardly and detestable heel stooging and bumping and then the brute on offence taking advantage of depleted and barely conscious Eddie, everything after the blood loss is some of the most emotional and visually lasting imagery in WWE history and the whole match feels like something out of the 80s and is a perfect homage to a classic babyface vs heel war.

The finish also doesn't get enough credit in terms of intelligence and furthering the feud. Eddie couldn't lose the match after all JBL had put him through as well as the beating he took and JBL couldn't lose due to Eddie's nearly immobile condition and the fact it was his first Main Event program. The finish puts over Eddie's hatred and fury at JBL and desire to hurt him regardless of the DQ whilst giving JBL a valid claim for a rematch with him having the perfect heel excuse that Eddie intentionally got himself DQ'd to save the title. Furthers the feud and allows the angle to continue till July and the Great American Bash whilst protecting both men who couldn't afford to lose the match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Crazy to think that I absolutely hated JBL/Eddie at the time. In fact I really didn't care for anything JBL did outside of his Undertaker feud for about... probably until he retired actually . Only going back and rewatching things made me appreciate him a hell of a lot more. JD match with Eddie is just stunning.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought Eddie/JBL was awesome the first time I saw it but it's grown on me even more over time. Top 20 match in company history.

Everything after the blade job feels like it's from a realm other than pro wrestling. Like a movie almost. In a good way obviously.
