Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I wouldn't go that far. It's not like WWE is ranking those matches on ratings or how many t-shirts they sold.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread



GOAT Thread's GOAT Matches :

1. Hogan-Andre WM III
2. Rock-Hogan WM X-8
3. Hogan-Sting STRC 97
4. Rock-Austin (any of them)
5. Rock-Cena WM XXVIII

Punk-Bryan sucks. Just two indy midgets who can't draw going out there and WRESTLING. BORING. We need more transvestites because THAT'S what sells. Ryback should squash both of them on the next episode of RAW to get over. Then Rock must squash Ryback, because Rock is the undisputed leader and ruler of the universe

Sounds like a typical Rock mark post.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

People rank matches for different reasons. Many of us rank based on workrate and storytelling and dive deep into how well did they sell or make a comeback. Some people rank matches based on the build and how the conclusion to that build ends or continues with the match. Defining matches and star-power are often on these WWE lists/DVD match selections and sometimes they are just random lol!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That's what makes their lists so fucked though IMO.. You can't really compare a Hogan-Andre to a Savage-Steamboat type encounter in the slightest, but I guran-damn-tee you that if WWE did a "greatest Wrestlemania matches" list that both would be on there. You can't compare defining moments like Flair-Sting to a workrate classic like Flair-Steamboat, it just doesn't work in the slightest. It's all personal preference really, just like rating matches in the first place (hell, I've seen people give Hogan-Andre **** 1/2 before).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's why I don't look much into a list ranked by WWE or say general wrestling fans. Someone could always say "remember how big Hogan vs Sting from Starrcade 1997 was?" even though it's a main event that isn't worth listing at all. Or comparable next to something completely underrated such as one of the multiman Lucha bouts from an obscure WCW PPV or Raven/Saturn vs Benoit/Malenko from Spring Stampede 1999.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

A lot of wrestling fans rank matches in terms of importance and 'effects on the business' rather than how entertaining they are and how good the performance. I get it, LOL WORKRATE isn't the be all and end all, but fuck sake, people are starting to shun it altogether and treat it like a dirty past time, like they're the PA to Vnce McMahon or something.

AAAANNYWAY, on another topic - I can't believe it took me this long to get into Finlay properly. Watched some of the matches in WCW with Regal and damn they really lay it in, excellent stuff. Just wish I paid more attention at the time.
