Got my DVD's that I ordered the other day (both Edge DVD's, Punk's BITW DVD, WrestleMania 24). Popped in WrestleMania 24 and watched two matches:
Finlay vs JBL - Belfast Brawl - ***
This was fun to watch because I'd never seen this match before. Immediately during JBL's entrance I was reminded how bad the feud was at the time with the Hornswoggle/Vince illegitimate son storyline, then Finlay been made the father, ugh. Finlay's character was already ruined at this point due to this, but when it came to the match Finlay was still the tough Irish bastard he always was. Was a decent brawl that got the crowd excited for the rest of the show, I liked JBL's repeated shots at Hornswoggle in the match, the slap and then throwing the trash can at him when he got up.
JBL hitting Finlay in the head with a trash can lid off an attempt at a suicide dive was just sick and the highlight of the match. Just a nice fun brawl here, would recommend watching it.
Chris Jericho, vs Carlito, vs John Morrison, vs Shelton Benjamin, vs Mr. Kennedy, vs MVP vs CM Punk - MITB ladder match - ****1/2
This match was awesome. I think I watched this match one time before on YouTube but I couldn't remember much of it, but I think it may very well be the best MITB ladder match. The spots like Morrison's moonsault with the ladder, the tower of doom off the ladder, Shelton's diving flip crash through the ladder, Shelton once again proving why he was the best in those matches. Carlito's backstabber off the ladder, Matt Hardy's surprise return to stop MVP winning the match by delivering a twist of fate off the ladder, which the crowd went crazy for, so many great spots in this match and MITB ladder matches are all about spots so I think this may put it is as the best one. Punk obviously getting the win here, but at the time I preferred MVP more and I would liked him to won.
