Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Received in the post today from Silvervision's sale:

CM Punk Best in the World bluray - been after this for so long, an absolute steal at £9.99 (-10% off too)
No Way Out 2012 bluray
Summerslam 2012 bluray

Cannot wait to get started on the Punk set tomorrow, heard such good things about it.

Also, can anyone suggest where I can pick up some Raw/Smackdown full sets from 2003/2004 on DVD, preferably in the UK.
My previous source sold all his master copies so struggling to find them anywhere else.
If anyone is interested I have Raw/SD sets from 1998-2001 for sale - pm me for details.

I still have yet to see Punk's documentary. Really need to change that soon.

Smackdown 10/3/2006

William Regal vs Paul Burchill - ★★¼
- Okay, the way Regal talks about Burchill's pirate gimmick is hilarious and the thing itself is just laughable. But that doesn't prevent these two from having a good match together. Too bad a complete lack of time does that instead. Also Burchill's finisher looks kinda funny since he seemingly landed on his head here.

Chris Benoit vs Gregory Helms - ★★★
- Very fun champion vs champion match. Benoit plays the douchebag role to the cocky heel pretty well as he constantly goes for Helms' injured nose and eventually beats him with the Crossface.

Randy Orton & Mark Henry vs Kurt Angle & Rey Mysterio - ★★¾
- Another enjoyable match. Standard tag stuff but gets awesome in the end when Mizark ruthlessly kills the referee and Daivari brings out a table. Rey is saved by Angle but in return, Angle takes an RKO and Mark gives him DAT AWESOME SPLASH through the table. Obligatory Undertaker interruption post-match as he confirms their casket match by voice only.

GAB 07 IS one of the better shows of 07 IMO. Carlito/Sandman really was the only stinker, every other thing was good or very good. Even Khali/Batista/Kane was very good IMO. Only WrestleMania, Backlash, Survivor Series and Armageddon were better shows that year I guess (No Mercy could be guessed as well).

As far as SSlam 90, nice show. Warrior/Rude is Warrior's best match ever that doesn't have Hogan or Savage in it.
Sure you don't mean their clash from Summerslam 1989 instead?

@ Benoit vs Helms from 2006. It's not too long, but it got a decent amount of time. I was one happy fan after that. HELMS.

Kinda liked Smackdown's main event tonight. Marked at the crowd chanting Si! for Del Rio.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It sounds pretty good.

I'm WAY over the "Si" crap though. ugh. Don't even get me started on how WWE is probably going to ruin this face turn for me. Already want Ricardo's blood.

You have Netflix? It's on there. I have to eventually get around to watching it myself.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I recently got the Punk DVD, and it's one of the better sets WWE has released in a while I think.

The documentary was insightful... and it was the first and only time I've ever identified with a professional wrestler to this extent. The whole outcast punk rock thing is something I relate to (even though he likes bands that I hate). The matches are also entertaining... has the 5 star match with Cena from MITB 2011 in his hometown, match with Morrison on ECW, TLC Match at Summerslam with Jeff Hardy, the excellent Money in the Bank Ladder Match that he won at Wrestlemania 24, his match with Rey Mysterio where he lost his hair etc.

It was also inspirational to see how many opportunities he created for himself. This guy was easily going to be future endeavored but he has this spark in him that no one else on the roster really has. He persevered and took so many risks that got him to where he is today.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Randy Orton's best match against an inferior opponent ? Had a discussion with a friend earlier about the fact that all of Orton's greatest matches and real CLASSICS (vs Foley, vs Benoit, vs Christian, vs Hunter, vs Shawn, vs Taker) have come against better opponents than him, with his matches against lesser workers (I.E. BARRETT) coming up short in the ratings department.

Mere coincidence or a sign that Orton is overrated in the ring by many ? (FUCK, I knew my love for Randy would be tarnished someday) Thoughts ?

EDIT : In the middle of WRESTLEMANIA IV and I have already enjoyed a pair of matches in Steamboat/Valentine and especially Rude/JAKE. The crowd shits all over the latter and it features a ton of restholds for a 15 minute match, BUT THAT WAS THE FUCKING STORY THEY WERE GOING FOR YOU IDIOTS. Watching that match made me realize just how great of an in-ring psychologist Jake can be sometimes, damn. Could have been OMGAWESOME if they went for a DDT non-finish instead of what they did. I'm probably the only person on the planet who loves that match though.

JAKE. THE. SNAKE.





"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

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't know if Orton's ever had a "classic" with an inferior worker (though technically I only consider one match of his a classic, which I define at being ****1/2 or above, and that match is against Christian at OTL), but I think his match with Edge on Raw in 2007 was fucking awesome, and I'd consider Orton a better in-ring worker than Edge. Same thing against Edge at Vengeance 2004. And his performance at Breaking Point 09 against Cena was what made that match as great as it was, even if he's not as great a worker as Cena (which I'm not sure if I'd put him above Cena or not, but I lean towards not right now).

Of course, I do feel he's pulled out some good stuff against Barrett and Henry in 2011, and again with Barrett in 2012, both of whom I'd easily put Orton above. Plus I think I remember enjoying one of his matches with Big Show during the year. Not to mention some good-great matches with Ziggler, Del Rio, Sheamus, and Rhodes, though those guys fall under the category of "I'm not sure where I'd put them as a worker when their matches happened compared to Orton". Though Ziggler I'm high on, Rhodes I think is one of the better workers in WWE, and Sheamus has been on fire on TV, particularly during the last half of 2012.

I'm watching you...
