He's got a lot of goodies from over the years, and his matches are always fun for me to watch.

Angle himself I was a fan of in 2000-2003, especially in 2000 as the ultimate comedic mid-card heel transitioning to main event. He was gold back then. Once he started getting to be the "SERIOUSRASSLIN'MACHINE" I lost interest.

In fact, might be the case for matches as well because the far majority of his matches I have on my top 200 are from pre-2004. So who knows.

What's interesting as it relates to Angle is while Angle/Benoit RR 03 is my top match of all time, none of the other Angle/Benoit matches are in that top 200. Maybe they'll pop in before 300 somewhere.

Edit: Oh, and I was Obis two usernames ago. Get with the times! <_<

(I have changed my username quite a bit. My next username will probably be my permanent one).

I'm watching you...

Wait until the SmackDown before Judgment Day where Kane comes in and ends the show by making the challenger and champion look like total chumps before they're about to main event a PPV.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Alright, I've been compiling my top list of matches... which I will eventually post... trying to get to 1,000 (might settle at 500 if 1,000 isn't possible as I'm not even sure if I've seen 1,000 matches). I just need to get some ideas of matches I may have missed and should add, or matches I need to watch, and as such, I'd like the top 10-20 (or however many you'd like to put) from each of these guys (preferably WWE only, but if something is REALLY good and not too long, I'll consider venturing out into unknown waters):

CM Punk
Daniel Bryan
Kane
Sheamus
Mark Henry
Big Show
Edge
Ric Flair (I have the Steamboat matches on my "list of matches to watch")
Bret Hart
The Rock
Austin
HHH
HBK
Angle
Benoit
Lesnar

The first 6 are the ones I'm really interested in seeing, mainly because you don't see their top lists as much as others (well, I don't anyway), but go for any and all of them if you wish.

Oh, and add in your best divas matches if you want.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Was that March 2012 Bryan match the one with each guy pinning the other and having the match restarted by the GM's?

Also didn't Punk and Mysterio have a match in 08 or 09 on PPV?

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rough guess at a top 15 without much in depth thought (not in order):

Backlund vs Valentine 2/19/79
Slaughter vs Sheik Boot Camp Match 6/16/84
Rockers vs Brainbusters Boston 3/18/89
Rockers vs Orient Express Royal Rumble 1991
Austin vs Hart Wrestlemania 13
HBK vs Taker HIAC Bad Blood '97
HHH vs Jericho Last Man Standing Fully Loaded 2000
Austin vs Angle Summerslam 2001
Eddie vs JBL Judgement Day 2004
Eddie vs Mysterio Smackdown 6/23/05
Benoit vs Finlay Judgement Day 2006
Cena vs Umaga Last Man Standing Royal Rumble 2007
Christian vs Swagger ECW 2/24/09
Cena vs Punk Money In The Bank 2011
Cena vs Lesnar Extreme Rules 2012

Loads of matches that could easily slip into that list. Christian/Swagger probably sticks out as the most 'out there' choice but fuck it, there may not be 3 title matches better than it in company history. I adore everything about the match, from the storytelling, the character dynamic, the selling, the control segment, how the transitions are dominated by the veteran instincts of Christian and the speed/power of Swagger, the payoff to the early work in the finish. Its just something that I find new appreciation for on every watch.

I can see the argument for matches like Foley/HHH Street Fight, Austin/HHH vs Benoit/Jericho, Savage/Steamboat, HHH/Batista HIAC, HBK/Tsker 25 and 26 (disagree with both being that high but I could understand), Batista/Tsker, Angle/Undertaker NWO, Savage/Flair (rewatch has a good chance of pushing this into that upper bracket) and other matches, but Swagger/Christian just has something magical about it. I also really wanted to put Hardy/Edge Unforgiven there but decided against it.

Funny, that AND the Flair/Steamboat series were plugged after I just watched them. Interesting. Then I jumped to Midnight Express vs Southern Boys from GAB '90 again. Yeah, don't think that's ever going to change from being number one in my heart. TAG TEAM WRESTLING.
