WWF Smackdown – 01.13.00
New Age Outlaws vs. Bradshaw- *
Too Cool and Rikishi vs. Hardcore Holly, Crash Holly, and Al Snow- *
Test vs. Gangrel- DUD
The Hardy Boyz vs. Prince Albert and The Big Bossman- *
Kurt Angle and Steve Blackman vs. Edge and Christian- *1/4
New Age Outlaws vs. Faarooq- DUD
The Godfather and D’Lo Brown vs. The Headbangers- DUD
Chris Jericho vs. Kane- *1/2
The Rock and Big Show vs. Triple H and X-Pac- *3/4


A whole lot of shit on this show outside of the opening promo with Mick Foley and Triple H, where Foley transformed into Cactus Jack. Angle and Blackman vs. Edge and Christian could have been pretty good had in not been cut short, which is a damn shame. Jericho/Kane was fine for the time it received, but I'm really looking forward to the culmination of the Jericho/Chyna feud so we can get Jericho on his own. The tag team main event was fine as well with the Big Show turning heel on The Rock after the match. As good as Raw has been the last two weeks, Smackdown has been pretty awful so far in the year 2000 outside of a few promos and the Rikishi/HHH main event from January 6th.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

No DQ match with Edge isn't underrated, its been released on DVD a couple of times too so people know about it and it always gets praise when brought up.

Personally I think its overrated . Its good, but not great. Too many spots for the sake of spots for my liking.

Chris Jericho vs The Rock- Royal Rumble 2002 ****

I enjoyed watching this match, but this is not my favorite Jericho vs. Rock match. My favorite is Jericho vs. Rock at No Mercy 2001. This is also not my favorite Rock match from the Royal Rumble. My favorite is the Rock vs. Mankind I Quit match at Royal Rumble 1999. Jericho looked good in this match, but The Rock proved that Jericho was not good enough by kicking out of two lionsaults and a Rock Bottom. He also didn’t tap out to the Walls of Jericho and kicked out of a pin after he was hit with the championship belt. Jericho had to perform three illegal moves in a row (low blow, using the exposed turnbuckle as a weapon, and pin with legs on the rope) to defeat The Rock. The match didn’t make The Rock look bad because Jericho had to cheat to win, but I think it made Jericho look like a weak champion because it was obvious that The Rock should have won the match

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The thing is that it doesn't mentioned anywhere close to as much as it deserves (alike the Benoit/Regal/Finlay matches)

Another Eddie-related underrated match is him & Chavo vs WGTT @ Backlash 2003. Easily MOTN of that event (and considering it had a fucking loaded card, it says a lot).

Jericho/Rock RR is good, but I prefer their No Mercy match by a large margin.



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

Which is fucking crazy because the guy is like the 6th greatest draw ever or something (according to that list Meltzer put up a few years ago anyway). I had heard rumours that some guys (Verne and possibly Eddie Graham) had gotten together and bet to see if they could convince Vince Sr to make BOB champion because him as champ was laughable or something, and Billy somewhat confirms that Vince was talked into it by those guys and someone else (I forget who). Billy kept on about how it was a mistake and shit but Vince was too proud to change anything after the belt was put on Bob. Maybe, just maybe, Bob was actually fucking DRAWING MONEY so they kept it on him. FOR NEARLY SIX YEARS.
Bob was a huge draw as the champ, and the last of dying breed in WWF before the transformation into the "soap opera" company. He was famous for wrestling other big champions, like Robinson, Race, Inoki, Patera and Flair. Huge money was made. Fuck the jelaous haters. And I like Graham.

Do you know he successfully defended his title 523 times?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ready to eat your words on the 2008 Rumble Cal ?

Oh yeah, I find that NO DQ Eddie match against Edge to be extremely overrated, much like 99 percent of everything non-gimmick that Edge does.





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
