Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought Undertaker did a tremendous job selling the hand. Was in pain any time he had to use it, then you have the old "adrenalin" excuse you could use, AND before the PPV they did a backstage segment with him getting a pain shot in his hand as well.

Edit: Taker/Orton HIAC is awesome. Undertaker is on a mission to MURDER Orton in that one. Would easily make my top 5 HIAC matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watch the unedited version of Taker/Orton HIAC from Armageddon '05. On the HIAC DVD they edited in wide shots and shots of Orton's back when he was choking Taker with a steel chain. Takes away some of the brutality effect for me.

Do you guys recommend the Best of Raw & Smackdown 2011? It looks pretty solid.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Undertaker/Orton HIAC is around the 4 star mark. Pretty brutal match. And no way is it in the top 5 HIAC matches in my opinion.

1. Undertaker/HBK HIAC - *****
2. Batista/HHH HIAC - *****
3. Undertaker/Lesnar HIAC - ****3/4
4. Undertaker/HHH HIAC - ****3/4
5. Undertaker/Edge HIAC - ****1/2

Hell, you could put Undertaker/Mankind anywhere on that list not because of a star rating, but because of how fun and historic it was.

And finally on Lesnar/Taker HIAC. Adrenaline, or no adrenaline, it still doesnt excuse that he stopped selling the hand half way through. Sure they said they gave him pain shots, but his hand was broken, and then Lesnar broke it even more when he smashed a steel chair over it a bunch of times. Undertaker was still using the chokeslam with that same hand, and was still using it to help him climb the turnbuckle and more. Another thing that bugged me was the pain shot reference. So at first he is selling it and screaming every time he uses it, and then when he stops, well it was the pain shots. I might seem harsh on it, but it just kind of bugged me a bit. Still a near perfect match though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think Undertaker/Batista was pretty epic too. Saying that, what a massively underrated show. Miz/Punk/Morrison was around the *** mark, Orton/Michaels was Ortons greatest match at ****1/4 and the HIAC hits **** easily.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Question for yall who rate matches. I'd like to do this as well but never really tried to. I guess my question is if you are going to give something **** 3/4 is it something big that is keeping it from ***** or are you just being a picky smark? Im just curious and not calling anyone out. I forget the forum but some dude I have seen refuses to give a match ***** no matter what. This kind of defeats the whole purpose. I agree with a lot of the reviews on here and they are fun to read. Keep it up guys. I have just never taken the time to give *'s to matches and would like to start.

2. Mick Foley (Cactus Jack)
3. Bret Hart (The Hart Foundation best tag team ever)
4. Sting
5. Ted DiBiase (best heel of all time)

When you give a match ****3/4, it means you added something to a ****1/2 match, not that you took away something from a ***** match. Five stars is in different league, there's a good difference.
