OMG, I didn't even see that he gave HBK/Flair ***** stars.

I gave it like ***1/2. It was alright for what it was. Love Flair and he is undoubtedly the GOAT, but he could only do so much at that age.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I actually have HBK/Flair as WWE's MOTY for 2008. **** 1/2

Although, I wasn't really watching back in 2008 so I haven't seen everything. I'm not as big on the Jericho/HBK series as everyone else seems to be, but I'd understand why people prefer any of them matches of HBK/Flair. It's just personal preference.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I haven't watched HBK/Flair since it first aired and I don't think I want to ever give it a re-watch. I enjoyed it immensely and I know I will enjoy it much, much less the second time I watch it.

I'm just going to leave the memories alone and keep my **** rating for it standing forever.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've got HBK/Flair at ***** still. I certainly did the night it happened. Rewatches I still get chills. Not HBK's best mania match though, imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Also, the booking of Kurt Angle was mostly a fucking JOKE. I mean, you got an Olympic Gold Medalist in fucking WRESTLING, and he was playing the Olympic Gold Medalist WRESTLER character, and yet he barely outwrestled, outsmarted, outgrappled anyone in his career. It was always the "we are equalz" schtick where Angle could display his skills, but hey, so could his opponent.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Once I didn't see Trips/Batista in the top 5 I decided not to look at the rest of the list.

Just finished Austin/HBK @ Mania XIV and GOOD GOD, under the circumstances that were provided has there ever been a better WWF/WWE performance by Shawn Michaels all things considered ? When I think about the matches he was involved in starting post Wrestlemania XIII when he FOUND HIS SMILE AGAIN and ending @ Mania XIV , that HAS to be the greatest single year by any performer in company history, right ? Some of his matches from that timeframe include ;

- vs Austin @ KOTR 97
- W/Austin vs Bulldog/Owen on RAW
- vs Mankind on RAW (Mind Games LITE essentially)
- vs Bulldog @ ONO 97
- vs Undertaker @ GZ 97
- vs Undertaker @ BB 97 in the greatest match of all time
- vs Bret @ SS 97 in their greatest match together
- vs a relatively new Ken Shamrock @ IYH DX
- vs Undertaker @ RR 98 (MOTY)
- vs Austin @ WM XIV in one of the ballsiest performances ever

Not to mention the plethora of COKE induced promos on Shawn's behalf during that era where he basically owned the fucking world. Probably the greatest prime of any performer in North American mainstream wrestling history outside of FLAIR IN 1989 in my honest opinion. What a fucking beast Shawn was, but then he had to find GOD, stop doing COKE, and come back as a pretty awesome but not EPIC SHAWN ON COKE like he was before. The moral of the story is simple ; MORE WRESTLERS SHOULD DO COCAINE. ORTON PROBABLY DID COCAINE IN HIS PRIME AND NOW LOOK AT HIM.

SHAWN MICHAELS ON COKE.





"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
