Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Top 5 LMS matches:
1. Orton/HHH NM 07 - ★★★★
2. Cena/Umaga RR 07 - ★★★★
3. Jericho/HHH FL 00 - ★★★★
4. HHH/Flair SVS 05 - ★★★★
5. Edge/Benoit BL 05 - ★★★★

Was also struggling about what to choose for the last spot. Need to watch Taker/Show and Jericho/Kane. Taker/Batista almost tied with Edge/Benoit.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Top 5 LMS matches:

1. HHH/Jericho FL 00
2. Undertaker/Batisa BL 07
3. HHH/Orton NM 07
4. Undertaker/Show CS 08
5. HHH/Orton Raw wheneveritwas

Would need to see the likes of Rock/Mankind, Edge/Benoit and a couple others again though. Shane/Show deserves a mention for being super fun.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cyber Sunday 2008:
Shelton/Truth (Pre-show): **
Rey/Kane: ***
Matt/Bourne: ***3/4
Cryme Tyme/JoMiz: **1/2
Santino/HTM: N/A
Taker/Show: ****
HHH/Jeff: ****
Jericho/Batista: ***1/2

Really good show, quite underrated. Two **** matches (HHH/Jeff being the better one IMO), the ECW and WHC Title matches were very good too, and all the rest was decent (Santino/HTM was an entertaining segment).



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

HHH/Jeff from Cyber Sunday is probably my least favorite of the series. *** for it. The Armageddon 07 match is great and NM 08 is fucking awesome and Jeff's best normal singles match, as well as HHH's best match since his HIAC with Batista.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Talking of HHH/Jeff at No Mercy, I always felt WWE pulled the trigger too early on Jeff's first WWE title win at Armageddon 08. The guy was probably the most over star in the company at that point, probably even bigger then Cena. It felt like he should've won the title at 'Mania and it would have been a huge moment and probably sky rocketed his career.

Having him win it at Armageddon was fine, but then he lost it a month later and went into a pretty average midcard feud with his brother, which killed his momentum. It might have been because of his unreliability, but still chance missed imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Armageddon 07 is my least favourite match on the series, but it was great as well. NM 08 was fucking awesome, but unfortunely overshadowed by a near ***** Ladder Match between Jericho & HBK. NM was the only PPV in 2008 that could give WM 24 a run for it's money IMO.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Big fan of HHH/Jeff from Cyber Sunday. It played off the No Mercy match nicely and was similar in quality. Great match.

Speaking of HHH/Jeff, No Mercy '08 is right up there with Hunter's best non-gimmick matches ever. Against Michaels (Raw '03), Taker (Wrestlemania 27) and Rock (Backlash '00) are the competition. Cena (Night of Champions '08) and Benoit (No Mercy '00) deserve mentions.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

From Benoit/HHH matches, I prefer Vengeance 04 and Raw 14/3/05 to No Mercy 00. There's just something about Benoit before and after his neck injury. From everyone he worked with in 00 and 01 as well as 02-07, it varies. For instance, his matches with Jericho in 00 and 01 blow away anything they had together afterwards (two Raw matches aren't much though) but then with HHH, I think the stuff they did in 04 and 05 are far better than anything they had in 00 and 01 (TMPT/J&B tag excluded).

And the Taker match at WM27 was a NHB so it doesn't count.

Watching CS 08 match between Taker and Show right now. Thankfully myspace is useful for something as they have so many full matches up.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

As much as I utterly despise Jeff Hardy, in terms of consistent matches he has been one of Hunter's best opponents throughout the years. If I were to rank Trips and his best opponents ever it would probably go something like this ;

1. FOLEY (every single PPV match these two had was AWESOME, and they had DAT MSG street fight on RAW and THE GAME'S first title win. Nobody comes close to getting more out of Hunter than Foley, no question)

2. Chris Benoit (quality, quality, quality. It seems as if these two have had more TV classics against each other than any other combination in history. Their No Mercy 2000 match is awesome, and I'm a huge fan of their Vengeance match. They were also involved in the two 04 Triple threats together, as well as my GOAT WWE/WWF tag match. THAT HAS TO COUNT FOR SOMETHING. Those RAW 05 matches were just something else)

3. THE ROCK (Yeah, these two put each other on the map. I'm a big fan of their Summerslam match despite what others may think about it, but some matches that don't get mentioned are their two awesome Fully Loaded matches, with one being 2/3 falls and the other being a strap match. They had a fantastic ironman match at JD 00 and an equally awesome match at Backlash 00 as well. Let's not forget about their Rebellion cage match either ; this may not be THE GAME's most consistent opponent, but probably his biggest rival ever outside of Foley).

4. Chris Jericho (I love their Mania match more than most people and thought it was a legit great match with some fantastic psychology behind it, but that's an argument for another day. The 2000 TV matches they had were fantastic, their JD 02 CELL match redefined what the cell would become in the future, and did I mention that they wrestled one of the greatest matches and WARS in WWF/WWE history @ Fully Loaded 2000 ?)

5. Jeff Hardy (Yeah I know, Jeff isn't exactly the greatest but for some reason when those two lock up something special happens. The No Mercy, Cyber Sunday, and Armageddon matches are all very special, and I credit Hunter alot for being able to give Jeff his best matches that don't involve CM Punk. I love their short TV matches in the early 00s also that made Trips look like a BEAST.)

The reason I don't have Taker here is because they've had like 20 matches and I like THREE. THREE. For some reason the only time they can have a great match is @ MANIA. Feuds like BATISTA, CENA, and STONE COLD don't get included because they've only had a handful of matches against one another in each feud. The HBK feud is too inconsistent for my liking while the Orton feud was complete shit bar a few gimmick matches.

THE GAME.





"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

JD Jericho/HHH re-defined what a HIAC match would become? Shit?

Only worthwhile HHH/Jericho matches are LMS, and the Raw where Jericho "wins" the belt.
