Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I cant believe ive yet to see Brock/Taker HIAC, nor anything from 08 that gets props (Jericho/Michaels, HHH/Hardy, HBK/Ric Flair).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Top 5 Cell matches:

1) Taker/HBK BB97- *****
2) Taker/Lesnar NM02- ****3/4
3) Taker/Edge SSlam 08- ****3/4
4) Batista/HHH Vengeance 05- ****1/2
5) Taker/Batista SS07- ****1/4 (This and Taker/Orton are practically tied, and I swap them around all the time)

Taker/Lesnar is the highest match at ****3/4 for me and really it's just Taker's selling that keeps me from putting it at *****, while Taker/Edge is on the lower end, but has everything you could want in a match in some degree in the match... both classics. Batista/HHH is both men's best cell match, and Taker/Batista was the match we always loved between them, but more brutal and with a cell around them. Taker/Orton for an honorable mention, was just such a great end to the rivalry.

Top 5 EC Matches:

1) SS02- ****1/2
2) NYR05- ****1/4
3) World Title EC 09- ****1/4
4) World Title EC 2011- ****1/4
5) WWE Title EC 09- ****

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just rewatched Undertaker v Brock HIAC, It is definitely my favourite cell match, I'd give it ****1/2. The only reason it's not ***** for me is the selling of the hand by Taker, for the majority of the match he sold it very well but there were just a few moments that he didn't sell it. The biggest example was the chokeslam, he hit it and covered Brock all without a problem but then punched Brock with the hand and doubled over in pain, surely giving someone a chokeslam would hurt more than a punch, it's probably very nit picky but it took away from the match for me. Apart from that unbelievable match, the reversal of the tombstone into an F5 was amazing.

I'd say overall the Angle/Lesnar SS match for me was Brock's best match with this second and probably the iron man third

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.
It does have a lot to do with being a picky smark, but I don't think there is anything wrong and I personally think it's a good thing.

My view on what a 5 star match should be is that it should be flawless in the eye of the viewer. Take for example Cena vs Punk MiTB. I adore that match but a few of the botches did suck me out of the moment. It's not perfect in my eyes and gets the ****3/4 rating.

I don't think anyone is in the position to call someone wrong on giving that match the full monty though. The match may not of perfect from a physical standpoint (an undeniable fact), but if the botches didn't negatively affect your viewing in anyway, then go ahead and give it the full five (if you think it warrants it, of course).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Most of the time its just a "feeling" I get when watching a match. If I'm not "feeling" it as being ***** then I'm not going to give it the full 5.

If Angle/Undertaker SD 03 match had a proper finish though, I'd likely go the full *****. Possibly the same for HBK/Mankind at Mindgames lol.

Do you have any match at *****? I don't think any match is flawless.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Talking about 5 star matches, I agree with Cal in that you need to get that "feeling". It can't really be explained in any more detail than that. If it makes me revert back to being a child and just mark the fuck out then its done is job.

Punk/Cena MitB was used as an example which I agree is 5 stars. That being said, from a technical standpoint it is far from perfect, however it is still very good in that aspect and everything else about that match is amazing.

I firmly beleive that atmosphere adds a hell of a lot to a match. A hot crowd and a great build improve a match tenfold in my eyes.
