I'd have to go out and find the 2 RAW matches to know how they hold up. I know the one following Backlash '07 does. Thanks to Edge's DVD for that gem.
I know what you mean, they definitely made it work despite the length but usually, 20 minutes is fine for a midcard match.

Here's the 13/12 match I've been pimping: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7l...t#.URfXt7Unguc

I can't find their IC title rematch (19/7/04) anywhere but on WWE.com. For me, it's blocked but I guess in America you can see the whole thing fine:
http://www.wwe.com/videos/raw-edge-v...92004-26008823 (not sure if it's the whole thing, I could swear it was longer than 15 minutes)

Their other Raw match is May 10 and IIRC, Orton wins after Flair distracts Edge.

I marked so hard last night when I saw the Undertaker match make the set. Same with Belfast Brawl vs Finlay.

Steel Cage match might have (no pun intended) edged out over Vengeance in my personal enjoyment list. Kane's bladejob is pretty sick, they incorporate some fun moments and the finish is logical & fitting - That damn briefcase. Good match. Vengeance has Kane picking up the W though in one of my favorite moments, so any way you slice it, I guess it's all good.

Looks a little bit like this:

Gold Rush Finals ~ ***1/4 (could go up. Think the leg work is pretty well done/sold by Kane)
Vengeance ~ ***1/4
Steel Cage ~ ***1/4
Stretcher ~ **1/2

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So just bought the Kane DVD. Brand new on ebay for £4. I'm happy.

Edit: I swear I've spent about £15 in the last week buying wrestling DVD's because of you Cody. Cunt.

Awesome. Got the IC Championship rematch going right now.

This reminds me, I still need to watch Edge vs Angle from Backlash 2002. Guess this is going to be an all Edge morning instead of an all Kane morning.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Orton/Edge would've made for a geat WrestleMania main-event given their history. Shame it never happened.

Enjoy it.

And on the Edge/Kane topic, other than their Vengeance and Cage match, I didn't really care about the rest. My disappointment for the Gold Rush match is due to how promising it was with Benoit beating HHH. The finals should've been Benoit vs HBK with either men, preferably BENOIT, winning and proceeding to have a great TV match with Batista. But instead, they used the tournament just to turn Lita heel. DISAPPOINTING!

Speaking of KANE/Taker, I've got it on next (the 08 match) once I'm done with this Smackdown 06 episode.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I loved the tournament. It had competitive matches and helped continue to elevate Edge to the main event picture. Which it was intended for. Kane getting a nice rub out of it over the others was cool. Mostly b/c it was unexpected. At least Benoit beat HHH on RAW. I'll take it.

Undertaker vs Kane owns. Interesting 9 minute match they had. One of the matches actually worth seeing from Smackdown in 2008.

That's another one of those re-booking a WrestleMania decisions I will always think about. They should have had a singles match at WrestleMania 23 instead of just being added star power in the MITB Ladder Match. It would have greatly strengthened the rest of the card and we really didn't need Kane/Khali whose only purpose was to recreate the Hogan/Andre slam 20 years later. I also wouldn't have put Melina and Ashley in a one-on-one match. It should have been a triple threat with Mickie that would lead to the singles match they had at Backlash later that month.

Here's the 8 man tag against Benjamin, Benoit, Foley & HBK.
Thank you so much! Any other suggestions for my Top 1000 would be appreciated too, I would like to thank The Rawk for making me want to do this, mine will be throughout all promotions as well as it will be more of my favorites then the best, but it should be fun to do!

I think that was the original plan, but Orton did something?
