'04 is great but I really like the '09 one too. Lots of good dynamics to it and tons of false eliminations.

If it's full Rumble shows, go with 92 or 09. For just RR matches... 92 or 09 as well from your list of options .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2009 is pretty good. That's coming from the 2008 effect I guess, but the 09 undercard was very good. Edge/Jeff was easily ***3/4 material.

Heard some peeps on the net saying SummerSlam 2011 was the GOAT SSlam since 02. I agree actually, though 08 was great as well.

I like SummerSlam 2008, with Taker/Edge obviously being very good, but the two title matches are pretty average. HHH/Khali is just poor. Punk/JBL is solid but nothing special. It really felt like the focus was on Taker/Edge and Batista/Cena and the title matches were just thrown together, which is pretty disappointing considering SummerSlam is supposed to be the #2 PPV.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh my gawd, DA ROYAL RUMBLE'S TOMORROW!

Always love the PPV for normally just the Rumble match, but this year there's something even better in Punk vs. Rock for the WWE Title. Not to mention I'm also looking forward to seeing Road Scholars facing Team Hell No, even though the match has happened a few times in the past few months. Mainly I'm looking forward to it this time around, as I believe this time they'll finally give Sandow and Rhodes the belts. I'm also even somewhat looking forward to the World Title match, though not for the match itself, but mainly for the possible Ziggler cash-in, which I see happening since it hasn't been teased in a while I think.

On the Punk/Rock match, I'm expecting it to be one of the best matches for both men, and possibly a classic. It'll be Punk's biggest match of his career so I'm sure he's gonna put 110% into it, and it's gonna be Rock's big title win, so it's the same on his side. These two seem to work really really well together, and I hope they put together the match I know they can tomorrow night.

The Rumble match is going to be oodles of fun as they have some good starpower in the match, plus some interesting combinations that could come about. Any combination of Ryback, Cena, Sheamus, and Orton looks really good, and I could see them being the final four... though WWE does normally not put the biggest stars in the match all in the finale normally. I'm thinking a Ryback/Cena finish with Cena getting the win. I see Sheamus eliminating Orton, and either this causes Orton to eliminate Sheamus, or cost him his match at EC and turn heel. I'm actually kinda interested in seeing Ryback/Sheamus. Both men seem to be in line to be the next top face after Cena, so it'd be interesting to see how their interaction goes.

Plus there's also the possibility of some surprise entrants. If Punk/Rock goes on before the rumble, one of them could end up being in the match. There's also the possibility of Taker and/or Lesnar, which is exciting, though Taker could've been a surprise entrant last year and he wasn't, so I have my doubts on him being there. Plus now apparently Carlito and Benjamin are going to be in the Rumble, and they're some damn fine workers, so they could bring some interesting moments into the match. Not to mention guys like Bryan and Ziggler, whom could end up being the MVP of the match, especially Ziggler since he'll be in the start of the match.

Only a little over 26 hours away!

08 did have one of the best cell matches of all time (number 3), a classic at that in Taker/Edge, as well as an awesome Batista/Cena match. That being said, the HHH/Khali match was poor (which isn't surprising for a Khali match), Punk/JBL was underwhelming, and honestly I don't remember much otherwise. The combination of Punk/Cena and Orton/Christian at Summerslam 2011 might beat the combination of Taker/Edge and Cena/Batista from the 2008 show, but I'd put Taker/Edge easily above that Punk/Cena and Orton/Christian match.

I'm watching you...

Fitting too, because Cena is going to win this year as well
I've been thinking about watching that one since it's been a long while from the last time I saw it.

Yep, although it was 2 years ago shortly after RR 11 when I was going through a Rumble-crazed period and just went through random matches on youtube. Been saving a more proper watch for when I'm done with 06 and reach 07.

Also worth mentioning that it's my favorite after 2004 and above 2001.

Nah, just the Rumble match. I've seen 09 a long time ago but 92 is the only critically acclaimed match from the Rumbles I haven never seen.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Best SS since 02? Hmmm...

SS 03

Taker/A-Train solid match
4 way US title match was fun
Angle/Lesnar ***** MOTY for WWE
Chamber is fun

SS 04

HHH/Eugene is good for HHH's heel schtick
JBL/Undertaker is a good match
Orton/Benoit is a great match

SS 05

Mysterio/Eddie is ok
Undertaker/Orton is awesome
Hogan/HBK is hilarious

SS 06

Flair/Foley is great

SS 07

Kane/Finlay is decent

SS 08

Batista/Cena is good
Undertaker/Edge is great

SS 09

Punk/Hardy is good

SS '10

Kane/Mysterio is solid
Need to re-watch the main event which gets tons of praise

SS '11

Henry/Sheamus is fun
Barrett/Bryan is good (Barrett's best match ever by quite a large margin)
Orton/Christian is great
Punk/Cena is great

SS '12

Bryan/Kane is fun
Lesnar/HHH is awesome

So based on that... I'd go with '11 lol. 03 has the ***** and some fun ones though placing it second probably. Some pretty fucking TERRIBLE SS events in there though. I wish WWE would start treating it (and Survivor Series) like ACTUAL "Big Four" events again.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Bo Dallas is in the RR match now.

This'll be the first time I've seen the Rumble live for years. My favourite PPV of the year it's gonna be a doozy. Can't see why either Rock or Punk would be in the match though. Has there ever been a Rumble match featuring guys in the world title match?

"Yes, I can hear you Clem Fandango!"

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

From what I can remember from each Summerslam:

SS 03

Angle/Lesnar ****1/2
EC- **1/2

SS 04

HHH/Eugene- ***3/4
JBL/Undertaker- ***1/2
Orton/Benoit- ****1/4

SS 05

Mysterio/Eddie- ***1/4
Undertaker/Orton- ****
Hogan/HBK- ***1/2

SS 06

Edge/Cena- ***

SS 07

HHH/King Booker- **1/2
Cena/Orton- ****

SS 08

HHH/Khali- 1/4*
Punk/JBL- **1/2
Batista/Cena- ****
Undertaker/Edge- ****3/4

SS 09

DX/Legacy- ***3/4
Punk/Hardy- ****1/2

SS '10

Team WWE vs. Nexus- ****

SS '11

Henry/Sheamus- ***
Barrett/Bryan- ****
Orton/Christian- ****1/4
Punk/Cena- ****1/4

SS '12

Bryan/Kane- ***1/4
Punk/Show/Cena- **1/2
Lesnar/HHH- ***

I suppose I'd put SS 2011 as the best since 2002. Two awesome title matches and an excellent Barrett/Bryan match. Not to mention Sheamus/Henry was good. Most of the events I can't remember a lot of the matches, which I suppose isn't a good sign for them to begin with.

I'm watching you...
