It's SHITE. Matches are all either too short to be good (the ones that look good on paper) or are far too long than they deserve (the ones that look shite on paper). Avoid it.

Punk Bluray just arrived. Already seen it. And got a bluray copy from Platt when it first came out... but its nice to own it original .

All this talk of 2000 makes me want to continue with my project. Almost caught up with SD as far as I got with Raw, and I think I'm close with HEAT as well (Heat is sooooo much fun in 2000 btw). But I need to get these RR reviews done. Need to watch 08 and post today. Bah. Not a fan of this show at all.

Fantastically underrated feud imo that provided equally fantastic matches.

GOON, I'm one Smackdown ahead of you. Watched that yesterday I think it was. This is the show Sabin and I are talking about where Mankind morphs into Cactus Jack and the beginning of the Big Show/Rock tension begins as well. Can't wait to get to the Rumble itself. Hardys/Dudleyz Table match and of course, Foley/HHH Street Fight.
The promo where Mankind transforms into Cactus Jack is just awesome. It's a pretty long promo but it never seems to drag or get boring. The Foley/HHH feud so far is just awesome so far and I assume it stays that way until the Hell in a Cell match the next month at the No Way Out Pay Per View.

The TV match quality so far is pretty poor outside of a few matches (outside of the Rock/D-Generation X handi-cap match on the 01/03/00 edition of Raw and the eight man tag on the 01/10/00 edition of Raw as well) but it's understandable considering that they seem to have 7-9 matches on every show so most matches have to be short. I've found a few fun matches though that only get a couple of minutes (Rikishi/HHH on the 01/06/00 edition of Smackdown for the WWF Championship and Venis/Edge on the 01/10/00 edition of Raw for the European Championship).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Shame then, Savage/Dynamite had potential to be one of the greatest matches ever. Did these two ever wrestle each other than The Wrestling Classic?

No idea, but honestly I don't care . DK is hugely overrated and I've never cared for much that he's done.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watch some of his early work with the The British Bulldogs. I seriously liked it. But again, opinions are opinions. You liked the Taker/Show Punjabi Prison, I despised it.

My favourite Rey/Eddie match is their Ladder Match at SummerSlam 05. Hugely underrated imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ladder match is kinda sucky, compared to the rest of their awesome 05 series. *** at most. GAB is the hugely underrated match of the series. Some of the best work I've seen from Guerrero, which is REALLY saying something!

Speaking of sucky... watching the 08 RR. First 2 matches were bad.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really hate the Eddie/Rey ladder match.

Sloppy, odd spots and you can clearly see spots being called by both men. I think it's ** at most. I put it in the same category as Christian/Benjamin from TLC 09, just really shit considering who was in the matches.

Benjamin/Christian gets a *1/2 for me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah Shelton/Christian match is fucking TERRIBLE. Far, far worse than Eddie/Rey.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Might start reviewing the Eddie/Rey series today. Not sure if I've ever seen the ladder match and can't remember Wrestlemania. Those are probably their most disappointing matches but looking forward to Smackdown '04 and the other '05 matches.

Was Christian/Shelton actually bad? I remember it being decent. My memory is awful though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

They also have another match in the first Smackdown of 2005. That was a good one too and I think the match where they try to "out-cheat" each other. My least favorite has to be Great American Bash. Great heel work from Eddie but it was so distracting and ruined the flow every time he would exit the ring just to taunt Dominick. And the kid looking bored didn't help things either.

Eddie's really lucky his death came after his face turn and not in the middle of that bizarre angle. Just imagine how fucked kayfabe would have been and those who took wrestling seriously would have probably thought "good riddance".
