Pretty much my list with 2/19/79 vs Valentine being his best imo. I'd add the NJPW '80 match vs Hansen. I know he's had a few more matches in Japan and even later in BattlARTS, but the only other match that immediately sprang to mind was that Bret Hart match which goes 20-25 minutes from memory and sees Backlund turning at the end of the match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Still a bunch of "big" Backlund matches that I haven't even seen yet, like Hansen match, Patterson cage and a Larry Z match that got a vote or two in the WWF/E Top 100 poll.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't remember what PPV it was or anything because I was so young but one of my earliest wrestling memories of Backlund is him vs Bret in a throw in the towel match and Owen convinced his parents to throw in the towel for Bret then ran off celebrating. Brilliant.

No Way Out 2002
16:36 Tag Team Turmoil - **1/2
11:03 Goldust vs Rob Van Dam - **3/4
7:16 Booker T & Test vs Tazz & Spike Dudley - *3/4
10:27 Edge vs William Regal - **
17:25 Undertaker vs The Rock - ***1/4
14:40 Kurt Angle vs Triple H - ***
21:34 Stone Cold vs Chris Jericho - **1/2

Overall: 7/10 - a very solid event which never got slow which is always nice. Goldust/RVD was the pleasant surprise of the night. I didn't expect it to be as good as it ended up being.

Survivor Series 94.

Not a fan of that match myself though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Top 5 2005:
(****1/2)
1) HBK vs. Angle WM21
2) Batista vs. HHH Vengeance 2005
3) HBK vs. Benjamin Raw Gold Rush 2005
(****1/4)
4) Edge vs. Matt Hardy Unforgiven 2005
5) Undertaker vs. Orton WM21

On Eddie/JBL, can't say much about the match that hasn't already been said. #22 on my all-time list. The bullrope match... honestly I can't remember much at all and don't even remember what rating I had it at, and the cage match I had at ***1/2, but I do need to re-watch that as well.

Cena/HBK/HHH SVS 2009: ****

Awesome match. Despite them being hit or miss in matches, it was cool to see HBK and HHH exchanging blows again and they did a great job. The super kick at the start, which set the tone for the match is probably one of my favorite openings to a match. Some hard-hitting fun action from start to finish.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have it at **** as well, I kinda marked out by the DX implosion, too bad we didn't have HHH/HBK Retirement Matcb at WM 26 but what we got was amazing as well.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just finished watching Lesnar vs Rock vs HHH from Global Warning '02. Really good match, had never seen it before or even knew that it existed. Was a blu-ray extra on the Lesnar set. A solid ***3/4 from me.
