Most wrestlers I've heard speaking on the subject (the relevant ones anyways) have pretty much stated that they still respect Benoit. I brought up Orton a few pages back last night, HHH bluntly said he still stands by his comments from the tribute show, Shawn brought back the Crossface for use, Flair name dropped him on the HOF speech of his, Batista has constantly praised him and I can go on, RVD said he couldn't comprehend what happened and The Rock said pretty much the same thing. Jericho has been the most in-depth in his thoughts, though. I read that chapter of his second book a while back and he had some interesting stories. Made me laugh when he kept talking about how Benoit never returned his calls and the last time they were supposed to meet each other in Canada, it didn't happen because of that.

One thing I'm curious about until Taker finally drops his character is his backstage relationship with Benoit and thoughts on the tragedy. It's a shame they never worked with each other any further after that brief feud in 2000.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd love a good hour of Taker discussing many things throughout his character and thoughts on many of wrestling's greatest/tragic/interesting moments (one main curiosity for me being his take on what happened with Punk in 09). There's his DVD and a few interviews from 2000-2003, but even then that was 10 years. I would even pay to see it (at a reasonable price )

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching MANIA XXI now, anybody wanna throw out their STARZ!* (fuck this opener BTW) ?

Top 15 BROCK-DA-GAWD Matches (in no order)

vs Hulk Hogan @ SD 02
vs Rock @ Summerslam 2002
vs Undertaker @ Unforgiven 2002
vs Undertaker (HIAC) @ No Mercy 2002
vs Kurt Angle @ WM XIX
vs John Cena @ Backlash 2003
vs Big Show @ JD 2003
vs Kurt Angle vs Big Show @ Vengeance 2003
vs Kurt Angle @ Summerslam 2003
vs Kurt Angle (Ironman) @ SD 2003
vs Rey Mysterio @ SD 2003
vs Chris Benoit @ SD 2003
vs Eddie Guerrero @ No Way Out 2004
vs John Cena @ Extreme Rules 2012
vs Triple H @ Summerslam 2012

I'm like... 99 percent sure that BROCK will tear down the house at Wrestlemania no matter if he's working with Taker, GAME, Punk, ROCK (yes, he'll tear the house down even wrestling against ROCK, he's THAT good) or whoever. As a matter of fact, if both BROCK and Taker's Mania matches don't end up in my top five at the end of the year then I'll legitimately be shocked. Hell, if BROCK wrestles 4 matches this year I'd expect all 4 to make a top 10-15 list, he's THAT good. If Brock-Taker happens this year (sadly it won't ) then I'd expect no less than a **** 1/2 contest, no joke.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wrestlemania XXI had some pretty huge mark THE FUCK out moments that I'm reliving now. I remember going crazy @ the Hogan segment , and especially losing it when Orton counters the chokeslam into the RKO. One of the two times I actually thought nearly 100 percent that the streak was over and done with, the other being the Batista Bomb @ Wrestleania XXIII. Those counters were something else in the Orton match though holy shit.

I still have to watch the SUMO match, JBL-Cena, and Trish-Hemme ? UGH.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That show is definitely what you would call a mixed bag. Some great matches, mark out moments, and those funny film spoof vignettes they aired throughout the RTWM and on the PPV, but there was also so many matches that just fell flat on their ass.

HHH's entrance with Motorhead playing live and Undertaker's entrance gliding to the ring were both cool to watch as well.
