I just borrowed the entire 2003 PPV year from my friend. I have them all sitting here and plan to watch them during study breaks over the next few weeks lol. I'll be sure to drop some thoughts as I go along too.

Undertaker - No Mercy 08
Undertaker (Last Man Standing Match) - Cyber Sunday 08

He had a pretty good 2008.

Also, Show/Cena from SD in Feb. 09. Don't have the date but it was their best match together.

I really like this match lol. I don't know why but I really do like it. Fun little match and they played the whole David vs. Goliath thing to perfection imo. Outside of Flair/HBK, I'd have it as my second favorite match from Mania 24 if I'm being honest. Yeah, I liked it that much lol.

1 per disc, 5 postage & packaging outside of the UK .

I'd add Undertaker/Show Cage Match from... early 09 on SD I think it was. Either just before the RR or just after. Couple of HHH matches in 06 too (NYR and Raw 13/02/2006).

Finished the Edge DVD, documentary and matches (blu-ray). I'd really recommend it for the documentary alone. It was also nice seeing the Edge Appreciation Night they had after Smackdown back in September which ran 30+ minutes. The matches weren't bad at all, obviously they were missing a few. I would've had Edge/Foley from WM22 and the TLC match from WrestleMania 17, but oh well. Here are my ratings.

Disc 1:
Adam Impact vs. Christian Cage - **
Edge & Christian vs. Too Cool (c) vs. The Hardyz vs. T & A - **3/4
Edge vs. Eddie Guerrero (No Disqualification) - ***1/2
Edge (c) vs. Randy Orton (Intercontinental Championship) - ***3/4
Edge vs. Matt Hardy (Loser Leaves Raw Money in the Bank Ladder Match) - ***1/2
Edge (c) vs. John Cena (TLC Match for the WWE Championship) - ***3/4

Disc 2:
Edge vs. Shawn Michaels (Street Fight) - ***1/2
Edge (c) vs. The Undertaker (WM24) - ***3/4
Edge vs. Christian (Pick Your Poison) - ***1/2
Edge vs. Kane (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio (TLC for the World Championship) - ***1/4
Edge (c) vs. Wade Barrett vs. Kane vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Big Show (Elimination Chamber for the World Championship) - ****1/4
Edge (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio (World Heavyweight Championship) - **3/4

Blu-Ray Exclusive:
Edge vs. Jeff Hardy (c) (No Disqualification for the WWE Championship) - ***

Just finished watching the Edge documentary. It's brilliant, so I'll get the few negatives out of the way first:
Completely skipped over Rated RKO. Seriously? It was short lived but I think that was definitely a significant part of his career; he had nice chemistry with Orton and especially playing off their total opposites in Degeneration-X. I know they kept saying how pressed for time they were but really?

Recycling the "Totally Awesome Best of Edge and Christian" extra on this was totally not awesome. That's probably something a big mark like me would notice though, considering I've only watched that clip 140934875 times or so.

But from beginning to end, my favourite story of anyone in the WWE ever is Edge's, so to see it from his perspective and that of his close friends, family and peers is something I've always wanted. Taking you through his WWE career with his own thoughts on things adds meaning to it a lot, and it's just a pleasure watching the ascent from the little boy that's a wrestling fan, to wrestler-in-training, to the flat broke young man working the indies, to the guy that finally gets into the WWE, to someone making a huge impact on the tag team scene while living his dream with his best friend, to a slightly more experienced wrestler really getting into the groove of being a heel, and his great feuds, great matches, achieving world championships and numerous accolades and then finally, legend status celebrated in the Hall of Fame (although the DVD cut out before it got there). It is just a great story that reads like a cheesy fairy tale. And it kind of is.
Hearing his peers' thoughts on him and what it's like working with him, and being with him backstage is great as well. You hear from guys like Batista that have faced him, as well as guys like Curt Hawkins that have been in his corner and know what it's like to have him as a mentor.

I'm not gonna lie though, watching the footage from towards the end of his career will never not be upsetting. Especially in this doc, where they mention things like him getting hit in the back with a steel chair and completely losing feeling in his arms. I mean I know wrestlers are trained to be super tough and take the pain yada yada, but that's just scary to me. Really, really scary. Although it's things like that that make the "I have to retire" speech that follows kind of a dead cert. That doesn't make it any easier to swallow, but hey. So it goes.

I freaking love that match too! You see it on the card and it's like ugh, this is the obligatory celebrity match we have to sit through. And then they gave us that. It was awesome! Not as awesome as the MiTB match, Flair/HBK or Edge/Undertaker, but I suppose that shows you what a great show in general 'mania XXIV was .

Would have been nice, if it wasn't a blu-ray exclusive If anyone has a download link for it or anything, you know where to find me
