Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't know how I feel about Michaels/Angle. Would have to re-watch to see how it holds up. And Michaels/Jericho too. Always thought that was great but Jericho is by far the better guy in that match. Michaels/Flair needs another viewing too but right now I'd take that over Taker/Batista, Taker/Edge and Taker/Orton.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

First 30 minutes were utterly pointless. HBK works Bret's arm. Then they hit the 30 minute mark and randomly decide to pick up the pace. Bret forgets that his arm was worked on. HBK never goes back to it. So glad they spent the first half of the match with that.

KRIS BEN-U-AH - 2004 maybe? I get the feeling it could have been 06 had he not taken time off.
DA RAWK - Tough, he's a guy that, by all means, should have had better years than he did because he didn't stick around the whole year. 2001 probably.
DA UNDATAKAH - Shit....I could see 97, 07, mayyyyyybbe 08, 06 or 02. 08's probably a stretch since I don't like the Edge feud very much, but he had a great series with Show and a good bunch of TV matches I really like. Come to think of it I don't love his 02. Maybe I should watch stuff again.
JAWN CHENA - 07
Ric GOAT Flair - 85
SCSA - 01
HBK - 96, but I want to see the Rockers years again. (or in some cases, for the first time)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Iron Man must be the most polarizing match of all time, haha. Don't know if I'd classify it as "garbage," but I'm also not sure if I'm willing to sit through it again in order to see if it's garbage.

I'd also like to rewatch HBK/Angle and HBK/Jericho. HBK/Flair I've seen numerous times and it has held up. Awesome match.

Eh, you could pick on stuff like that for alot of good matches. Like Taker not selling a broken hand in a HIAC with Brock Lesnar in which his cast was ripped off and still somehow managing to get a chokeslam off.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That was ONE moment in a match. And Undertaker still sold excellently for the rest of it. Not like Lesnar worked it over for 30 minutes then Undertaker completely ignored it .

True, but it was a broken hand. It's not like Bret had a broken arm/shoulder going into the ironman match, kayfabe.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Was broken a couple of weeks earlier, and Undertaker had a painkiller shot prior to the match, kayfabe .

As a matter of fact that is something I have a problem with. It doesn't ruin the match but it bothers me.
