I think something there doesn't belong .
I've watched 26 far too many times to count. It's one of my personal favorites. To no surprise, it is from 2010. That year enchants me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Mysterio/Punk, IMO, is one of the greatest WWE sub-10 minute matches ever. I still prefer their Smackdown match a week or two before, but it is still greatness. The amount they accomplish in 6 minutes, and for it all to make sense and be hugely entertaining, really says a lot about both men - Especially given the lack of build up heading in to Mania.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread



For me, I like WM 17, but nowhere near as much as some people do. WM 19 is the GOAT for me, then I'd have 24 and 26 behind it, and then 17. Soft spot for WM 22 as well, just because of how fun the whole event is.

I'm thinking that's what's going to happen to me once I rewatch 24 and 26. When it comes to the CAL SCALE, I KNOW 26 is going to be high mainly because Taker-HBK should warrant like 11 points on it's own due to being***** and the MOTY (well, for now anyways... Who am I kidding), plus all of the awesome undercard being AWESOME.

24 has the MITB, Finlay-JBL, Flair-HBK, Orton-Cena-GAME, Show-Mayweather, and especially Edge-Taker. That should score fucking HIGH too, same with 22,21,20, and well... Every Wrestlemania from this point onwards .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I rated WM 17 on the CAL SCALE last night based on my current ratings. Got a 28. 8 whole points ahead of RR 2001 (aka the GOAT RR event). Sounds impressive, but RR 01 had 5 matches and one was a DUD, so only 4 matches went towards points. WM 17 had 11 matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WOW. I have Mania X-7 @ 27.5 points when I watched it on Monday, talk about precise shit right there.

Wrestlemania will obviously have higher scores due to having so many more matches than any other show on the year, unless all of them or most of them are BAD (see, Wrestlemania IV). Wrestlemania XIX has been pretty impressive when it comes to points so far and I haven't even watched Angle-Lesnar.

Preliminary CAL SCALE ratings for every Wrestlemania before you do a rewatch ?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't get the hate for Hogan/Andre at all. For Christ's sake, all that hate for a 10 minute match? I mean, it's no great match but, shit, it was fun while it lasted. Man, I wish Dave Meltzer could have given it at least ***. Maybe the match wouldn't get shit on as much.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I can probably only do from say WM 16 onwards. Haven't reviewed any of the older ones, and hell, I haven't even SEEN a lot of the older ones all the way through. Just the odd match here and there. I'll go through my old reviews and get some CAL SCALE figures up in a little while.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I got a lot of love for Wrestlemania 22 as well. Mostly because it was the first ever Mania that I saw. Got some bootleg copy of it on DVD some months after it came out

My favourite WM of all time is definitely 24. Talk about a card that was stacked with lots of fun. Heck, I even enjoyed Batista/Umaga for the train wreck that it was.

I'm not as high on 17 as most people mostly because the undercard was absolute shit.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I hadn't seen a majority of the older Manias from start to finish until I started rewatching them for my MANIA!* project. You're in for a treat when it comes to most Wrestlemania matches from I-XV, as in like 90 percent of them aren't just bad, they're REALLY bad. I'd argue that when it comes to the first 10 Wrestlemanias that there's more matches I have rated to be DUDs than I have matches over ***. Seriously, a bulk of the first six in particular have a shit ton of BAD matches.

If you rewatch every Wrestlemania it makes you appreciate the current product more than ever. The first few Wrestlemanias are some of the worst shows I've ever seen for sure.
