Finlay didn't start the year out on ECW in 2008. He was moved there as Benoit's replacement of what they wanted a "grizzled veteran to work with the newer guys" to be (apparently...I heard this when it happened). I THINK he shifted over following the JBL feud.
Steel Cage Match
Ultimate Warrior vs. ‘Macho King’ Randy Savage
Madison Square Garden 21st January, 1991
Savage is great in this as always, brilliant selling from the Macho King, excellent offence too. Still kinda hate the way you can pin your opponont in the cage lol, Hebner keeps having to run in the cage lol
Brotherly Love is fucking annoying as ever on commentary though, but hey you see Sherri's backside for most of the match
I don't know about a Savage LIST per se, but the guy's in my top 5 ever and I can tell you this ; an underrated Savage match would definitely have to be his Falls Count Anywhere match against Crush @ Wrestlemania X. It's not for some people but I felt it was intense for it's time and included some excellent booking. The fact that we got Bret/Yoko twice at Mania when we could have had Bret/Savage still pisses me off to this day. Savage's last WWF run was awesome though, loved his YOKO match on RAW as well.
His early WCW matches against Flair and eventually DDP were awesome, loved every second of the DDP feud. I'm currently watching every single Wrestlemania back to back and I'll say this for sure ; before Shawn and Taker broke out, Savage WAS Mr. Wrestlemania for sure. vs Steamboat, vs Hogan (what a fucking carry job), vs WARRIOR, and vs FLAIR are all epic matches, with what I believe his personal best being the Wrestlemania VIII match against Flair. Guy is legit one of the greatest all around talents in history next to the likes of Flair, Funk, and Foley.
"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
So at around 6:54, that's when some fans were chanting "overrated." That's why Punk replied to the This is Awesome chants with "Oh, first it was overrated? Sit down marks!" It all makes sense now. Dat Punk.
I'll ask this in here since I don't wanna hear some of the bullshit fucking answers that I'd hear in the general forum ; What is your biggest all time dream match ?
For me, look no further than "The Beast" Brock Lesnar vs "The Hitman" Bret Hart. When you look at the way these two have worked throughout their respective careers and when they were at their finest, for Lesnar you have to look no further than his matches against smaller but more technical guys such as Eddie and Benoit. What made those matches so fascinating is the idea that even though Brock had the power advantage, Eddie and Benoit were REALLY in trouble due to Brock being FASTER than them as well, having to resort to intelligence to try and beat him.
Bret worked wonders with big guys, look no further than his matches against Kevin Nash in 1994 and 1995. He could sell a beating from Nash so well that it made his ultimate babyface comeback look so much more effective, and the only person who could probably match Bret with this back then was Shawn. How Bret worked with Taker in 97 could be another hint at how the match would go as well ; BROCK destroys Bret but Bret uses his intelligence to get back into this thing. FUCK how I wish this match could happen.
REALISTICALLY Brock vs Shawn would be just as awesome as well, and is probably my number one dream match that can still happen even though Shawn is retired. If they wrestled I truly feel it would be GOAT worthy, no joke. Punk-Lesnar is a personal favorite of mine that I NEED to see happen at some point though. Make Punk a face/tweener for a little bit just so this can happen WWE FFS.
Hey man, I know you love Punk. One of my dream matches has been 97-98 version of HBK vs SES CM Punk. Think about how great that feud would be. There's alot there for Punk to pick on in his promos. It would be fantastic. The matches, ha, would obviously be ridiculous.
For the past few years, I've wanted to see HBK/Punk, HBK/Bryan (student/teacher story there, obviously), and HBK/Lesnar. Obviously another big one that ALOT of people point out is HBK/Rock. But if it's this current version of The Rock, while I would still be pumped, I'd much rather the 98-03 Rock. HBK/Steamboat, too.
