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.
