Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WCW wasn't WCW until like Dec... 88? I think that was the starting date for the WCW poll anyway. Everything before that was NWA/JCP. Besides Harley/Flair cage sucked .

Had to look at my full list to see where I ended up placing DDP/Goldberg though, was #32, so still pretty damn high.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yes, good watch, until the last part when they focus on current NWA which makes a mockery of the original NWA days. Seeing nobodies with the title wrestling in front of like 10 people is just a joke, but I like that they at least allow comments from people on both sides of it; some saying the NWA should stop because it's meaningless now, and some saying it still means something and should continue.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Decided to something of a 2011 project after all. I'll do a top 10/20 when I'm finished but figured I'd post these as I go along since not all of them will make the cut.

Monday Night Raw
WWE Championship
The Miz(c) vs. John Morrison
Falls Count Anywhere


I can count on one hand the number of good to great matches Miz has had in his career. This is one of them. I even have to admit that I marked just a bit for Morrison since I havenít seen him in any shape or fashion since whenever the hell it was that he left. ALEX RILEY sighting. The match starts with a huge leap off the WWE sign from Morrison on to both of them. Cool spot. Morrison takes a back drop on the steel guard railing too. I canít recall ever seeing that spot before. Ouch. Miz takes control of the match from here with some hard hitting offence. He starts to grow frustrated as Morrison keeps kicking out. Morrisonís comeback is fast paced and things start to pick up with reversals and kickouts galore. Morrison finally hits Starship Pain, fans think itís over but Miz kicks out. Cool nearfall. Thereís a table randomly set up on the outside and I canít remember how it got there. Somebodyís going through this thing. Morrison goes for Starship Pain on Miz through the table, Miz moves and Morrison crashes and burns but still manages to kickout. Both guys are getting put over big time in this thing and showing great resiliency. Miz has enough and hits the SCF on the outside to retain his title.

***3/4


Friday Night Smackdown
Rey Mysterio vs. Alberto Del Rio
2 Out Of 3 Falls


Great little hidden gem if you ask me. About 2 minutes in Del Rio gets the first fall with the cross arm breaker and continues to work on the arm throughout the match. Back and forth, back and forth until Mysterio lucks out and gets a fall for himself through a cradle roll up. Itís now 1 a piece. Del Rio goes back to the arm and even tries to take Mysterioís mask off which leads to a big diving headbutt off the top rope from Rey to ADR. I really like how back and forth the middle portion of this is with both of them getting offence in but just in the right time to pop the crowd and create excitement. Rey hits a big DDT and goes to the top but gets hung up on the turnbuckle. Del Rio tries for a big suplex up and over to the outside but settles for an arm breaker over the rope instead. Rey is hurting but somehow manages the 619 around the ring post sending Del Rio to the outside. Ricardo tries to help and itís time for Mysterio to fly, crashing into the both of them. All 3 men are down and the ref starts to count. Rey rolls Del Rio back into the ring at 7 and tries to get in himself but Ricardo holds his leg. The ref doesnít see it and Del Rio wins the last fall by countout. Post match Ricardo eats a 619 while Del Rio watches from the ramp.

***1/2
