Wrestlemania XII

Vader, Owen Hart & British Bulldog vs. Yokozuna, Ahmed Johnson, & Jake Roberts - **1/2
Stone Cold vs. Savio Vega - ** (terrible finish)
Ultimate Warrior vs. Hunter Hearst Helmsley - * (entertaining squash)
Undertaker vs. Diesel - *** (longer than it needed to be)
Roddy Piper vs. Goldust - **1/2 (decent brawl)
Iron Man Match for WWF Title: Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels - ***** (The best WM main event of all time)

Overall - 8/10

I know it's disappointing, but you have a watchable undercard and one of the greatest matches of all time taking up an hour of the show.

That is nothing compared to Hogan and Savage beating 8 wrestlers in a Handicap Doomsday Cage Match back at Uncensored 1996.

Going to a houseshow on 3/16 (AUSTIN 3:16?!?!?!?!) in Rhode Island~! Just got the tix. I'd mark the fuck out if they did one of those New Age Outlaws vs Rhodes Scholars matches at it.

No Way Out 2008

Undertaker vs Batista vs Finlay vs The Great Khali vs MVP vs Big Daddy V (Elimination Chamber)

- Was a bit disappointed in this. I heard a lot about the 08 chamber matches and expected this to be better but it was still good. Starts off with Batista and Undertaker as the first two men in the ring. Undertaker is in control for most of that portion in the match and the action is rather slow. But what followed didn't help at this point. The Great Khali and Big Daddy V entering back to back and the quick eliminations didn't really freshen the match up in any way. It should have been Finlay at #3 to bring some variety under that portion of the match but thankfully, the worthless giants find the exit pretty fast so they are harmless for the most part. Finlay and MVP don't last very long either, however. MVP is eliminated in the second best spot of the match as he tries to escape the Undertaker by heading to the top of the pod. He then does a backflip to the mat in form of a one hand Chokeslam by Undertaker which results in his elimination. After that, the match slows down but Hornswoggle creeping up between what little space there is between the chamber and the ring to hand Finlay the shillelagh was pretty cool. Finlay uses the weapon to gain the upper-hand but Undertaker Chokeslams him to the steel which brings us back to where we started. Only this time Batista and Undertaker are both bleeding. Crowd heavily support Undertaker and they go at it up until the best spot in the match when Undertaker reverses Batista's move into a Tombstone above the top rope and connects with the move for his ticket to Wrestlemania XXIV's main event. A good chamber match but not great. Needed more main event stars of Batista and Taker's caliber and bringing out Khali and Big Vis back to back didn't help. ★★★

Triple H vs Jeff Hardy vs JBL vs Umaga vs Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho (Elimination Chamber)
- Now this was absolutely awesome and lived up to all the hype. Similar to the 2005 classic, this starts off with the best two pure wrestlers as HBK and Jericho go at it for the first 5 minutes in regular ring wrestling. Then Umaga comes in third and absolutely wrecks shit plus delivers an awesome double Samoan Drop on both guys which the crowd applauds. But right before the next entrant, Jericho and HBK do a callback spot to 2005 as they lock in the Walls of Jericho and the Crossface on Umaga (where are you, Benoit? ) but he refuses to tap out and JBL breaks up the hold as he enters with the reason being his feud with Jericho at the time. HHH comes in next and the awesomeness only continues. JBL ends up being the first elimination after a Codebreaker and in a sore loser way, refuses to leave without making an impact. He brings in a couple of chairs and hits everyone except the laid out HHH with chair shots to the head, busting Jericho open in the process. Jeff Hardy enters last and is also on a roll with his high-flying offense all over the corners. They continue most of the match with all 5 men in the ring until Umaga takes finishers from everybody and is eliminated but Jericho gets eliminated instantly after pinning Umaga and then it doesn't take HBK much long before he's the victim of a Pedigree. Last two men are Hardy and HHH but they don't really wrestle for much longer than 5 minutes. Pedigree leads to a Hardy kick out which the crowd cheers and then the steel chair in the ring finally comes into play as HHH resorts to using that to put Hardy out of this and head to WM24 to challenge for the WWE Championship. GREAT match and by far one of the best chambers, my only complaint is the fast eliminations where they ripped a page out of the 2003 book. I just don't like it when numerous people get eliminated back to back and then there's only a brief amount of action between the final two. But the rest of the match is too great to get knocked down. ★★★★

Now before Sunday, I'll try to finish watching all the chamber matches so I can officially have my ranking for them.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah that Smackdown 2008 chamber isn't the best with the only positive I can think of off the top of my head would be Taker-Batista and that AWZUM finishing stretch. Batista and Taker had some MAD face-face chemistry that's kind of crazy for a guy like Batista to have. This is why I'd never be opposed to Sheamus-Taker if it ever happened (it won't, I know). Sheamus works with BIGS really well, Undertaker works well with big EXPLOSIVE mother fuckers like Lesnar and Batista, it would be a match made in heaven tbh.

WRASSLEMANIA XX COMIN' UP. ANYBODY GOT DEM STARZ FO DIS ?

I'm really looking forward to this HBK-HHH main event that ends in a draw.





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

And the title goes missing for five months until it's discovered at SummerSlam? rton2

Actually, I checked out Orton's milestones on wwe.com and one of the pics for his first title victory gives a close-up of the championship. On the plate, I can read some name that's spelled something like CH___ ___OIT. The middle of it is covered by the shiny light so I couldn't make out the entirety of it.

WM XX:
John Cena vs Big Show - ★★¾
World Tag Team Four Way - ★★½
Christian vs Jericho - ★★★
Evolution vs Rock n Sock - ★★★¼
Evening Gown - N/A
Cruiserweight Open - ★★¾
Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar - ★
WWE Tag Team Four Way - ★★
Victoria vs Molly Holly - ★★
Eddie Guerrero vs Kurt Angle - ★★★½
Undertaker vs Kane - ★¼
Chris Benoit vs Triple H vs Shawn Michaels - ★★★★★

I saw most of the event right before WM28, so I don't recall it all too well.
