Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Other then some arguments (which I don't agree with) for Savage, maybe Bret or Undertaker (whose best matches are with HBK) I can't think of anyone who comes close to Shawn's resume at Mania. Even if you think some or all of his matches are overrated you have to recognize the individual effort and performances he's had not only in WrestleMania history but in big matches throughout his career.


Much gratitude to

THE GAME IS A GOOD FRIEND. :jpl


Paul Levesque is a hell of a friend to Michael Hickenbottom, and vice versa, I'm sure.

Well done.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Based on my CURRENT HBK and Undertaker WM ratings, I used the CAL SCALE to see what their WM's look like:

HBK 63
Undertaker 89.5

So yeah, Mr WrestleMania for me atm is Undertaker . Not even that close either lol .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The only names that could remotely challenge HBK's position as Mr. WrestleMania are Taker, Bret and Savage IMO.



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker has his fair share of duds and below average on his resume in the early to mid and even late 90s. I love Taker, but some of his WM matches...yuck. Not all his fault at all, but still, they happened.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ah yes, Undertaker. That's the guy I was referring to.

From a pure percentages standpoint it seems as if Shawn never had a BAD Wrestlemania match, with like 90 percent of them being over 3 stars IMO (haven't seen a few yet, well I have but I haven't REWATCHED it). Can't wait to dive into this discussion with some actual RATINGZ to back it up in a week. I'm not saying Shawn isn't Mr. Wrestlemania, I'm just saying that it's not an undisputed in the books fact.

Like TLK said, more matches. Which helps . Plus only 1 DUD imo. Though some of those early ones got 0 or 0.5 points only which didn't help his overall rating .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not really sure how Savage is getting included in this...Steamboat, Flair and Warrior matches were great, but that's really it...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That's why I said it depends on what criteria you go by ; when it goes by percentages and shit it's CLEARLY Shawn and nobody else, but if you use an addition system without dividing than it's clearly Taker hands down. I've got a third criteria in mind for when I count down a top 10 to see just who the REAL Mr. Wrestlemania actually is.
