I don't like either Angle/Michaels match at all, but I'd probably call them evenly not-good before Vengeance has that god-awful finish.

WWE Smackdown 3/9/07

The Undertaker vs Finlay ~ ****

So gritty. So different. So great. Undertaker's expression after he catches Finlay in the air is probably my personal favorite that I've ever seen. Put the selling of the ribs in the best over the top fashion possible. Making you believe Finlay was pulverizing that one specific area throughout the match. Love love love it.

WrestleMania 22: Mick Foley vs. Edge
Pure awesome brutality. You know the glamour, the charm, the purity that we're used to see at WrestleMania? This threw all of that to trash. It was the unneccesary but very succesful Part 2 in making Edge a bonafide Main Eventer, for which Foley continued to prove he could put over like nobody else could. You had already seen a lot of brutal matches through WM history (i.e. TLC, Money In The Bank, Bret vs. Austin, etc.), but none had quite taken it as far as this did - thumbtacks, barbed wire, lighter fluid, crimson masked faces, and of course, flaming tables. All supported by a rabid Chicago crowd and great storytelling. The match itself, while awesome in its own right, you can call it essentially an original ECW match, or an inferior version of HHH vs. Foley or Orton vs. Foley. But, considering it's a "step cousin" of those matches, it was still worth watching. And since you never really had that kind of brutality at a WrestleMania ring, it kind-of marked a 1st time ever. Though the match was barely 15 minutes, and the outcome was predictable, but between Money In The Bank and this match with Mick Foley, you can definitely see what made Edge into the multiple time World Champion we now know him as. Oh, and this definitely was the defining WrestleMania moment for Mrs. Foley's baby boy. ****1/2



Special thanks to King Gimp for the sig.

MARKING FOR:
Daniel Bryan | Bad News Barrett | Dean Ambrose | Damien Sandow | Sami Zayn | Kevin Steen | Solomon Crowe | Austin Aries | Kota Ibushi | Kenny Omega | William Regal | Bayley | Renee Young | YOSHIHIKO - The greatest dummy wrestler of all the times | Anything DDT tbh, especially the Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship matches

Love this match think Id go around the ****1/2 mark as well. 2 guys going out just wanting to steal the show with an amazing crowd behind them. The barbwire wrapped round Foley spot was awesome aswell and Litas involvement was perfect. Great match and Id say the best match Foleys had since his first retirement in 2000

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Probably the Steel Cage vs Matt Hardy. If not Hell in a Cell vs Undertaker.

TLC from Unforgiven 2006 is bleh.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't think I could do a top 10 Edge singles-non gimmick match list, simply because there isn't 10 worthy of being put on their.

vs. Taker at Wrestlemania
vs. Orton at Vengeance 2004
didn't he have a decent match against Eddie in 2002?
vs. Del Rio was okay I guess

I find him so overrated it's not even funny.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Dammit, can't decide on which tagged classic to get for free in the buy 2 get 1 free offer atm. Picking up WM 7&8 and WM 13&14 to complete my WM collection... now I haven't a clue what else to get. IYH 14&15 has some stuff I'm interested in, KOTY&Inavsion 2001 I like... after that I'm not sure. Already got the likes of IYH 13&16, BACKLASH 2000... so yeah, fuck knows.

EDIT: went with Survivor Series 1987 & 1988

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Get KOTR & Invasion. The former has the most brutal main events pumped out by WWF and the other might be the easiest to watch PPV ever.

If I wasn't fussed with being lazy atm I'd look up which IYH you were talking about and post my two cents on them. I usually list them by PPV name instead of number so yeah...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Too late, bought something else instead . I've got Invasion as an ISO file on my PC so that'll do me for now. Only thing I was really interested in on KOTR was the street fight, and well, I'm pretty sure I have that on some comp around here. Same with the IYH matches (Revenge of the Taker being one of them ).
