Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I trying to figure out what the "suplex pin thingy" is. Paroxysm? God's Last Gift? Although the latter is a small package DDT so that can't be it...

Heads up. Free 2 chamber matches on WWE's youtube channel for a free watch. Just in case you wanted to get hyped up for EC this weekend.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Thanks for the links. I'll have to watch those two among all the chambers to rate them all before Sunday.

Backlash 2006:

Carlito vs Chris Masters - ★★¼
- Nothing that had me interested but they put enough effort in to make this a passable match. Not too long and Carlito has the crowd on his side. Without changing his attitude or anything, he has turned face and wins by using the ropes for leverage.

Umaga vs Ric Flair - ★★
- Squash match for UMAGA but it's okay. The dirtiest player in the game does what he does best using heelish tactics but it still proves to mean nothing when Umaga bulldozes his way through NAITCH.

Trish Stratus vs Mickie James - ½★
- Unfortunately, Trish is cursed again after her NYR 05 match with Lita was cut short due to mid match injury. Here, they are doing pretty fine for the first 3 or so minutes but then Mickie throws Trish over the top rope and she lands on her shoulder badly and injures it which causes them to improvise with a DQ finish.

Rob Van Dam vs Shelton Benjamin - ★★★★
- Absolutely awesome match. Two of the most athletic and agile wrestlers on the roster get this opportunity for a winner takes all event where the MITB briefcase and Intercontinental Championship are on the line. And to say they deliver is an understatement. Almost 20 minutes but never a dull moment. They use their signature spots very well and there are some pretty memorable highlights, most notably the brutal Sunset Flip Powerbomb Shelton gives RVD on the apron to the floor. As expected, RVD wins in the end but even the finish was more than just a generic clean one. The ref is shoved and "turned around" for a few seconds as Shelton resorts to bringing the briefcase in to win but it proves costly as RVD uses it for the Van Daminator and then a beautiful Frog Splash to win.

Big Show vs Kane - ¾★
- Boring is the perfect word to describe this. Very slow and lifeless until the hilarious "May 19" stuff takes place and the match ends without actually ending.

Shane & Vince McMahon vs Shawn Michaels & "God" - ★★★½
- A very fun match. Starts off with some comedy as "Vince wants God to get jiggy with it" but then they finally get serious and actually have a proper handicap match that goes all the way to the ramp and there, all three men put their bodies through some tough spots. But eventually, the McMahons take control and start beating on HBK for a very long amount of time. Vince is distracted and starts talking to the spotl- I mean "God". That gives HBK enough time to make his comeback where he destroys both opponents single-handedly while bloodied. Just when we're about to see a rehash of the WM22 finish, Spirit Squad interfere and attack Shawn enough to give Vince the chance to pin him in the middle of that ring. Surprisingly good for what it was and the terrible storyline accompanying it. Also chuckled at the WM recall when Vince tried to superkick Michaels.

John Cena vs Triple H vs Edge - ★★★★¼
- Wow, this was even better than I remembered it being. A highly entertaining three way with very good action and back and forth involving all three men. Starts off with Edge taking advantage of the hatred between HHH and Cena as they beat each other but then they realize they are being fooled and start beating on Edge (early hints of HHH's face turn along with the DX Chop). From then on, the match just picks up the speed and the action becomes more interesting. Edge catapults HHH into the steel post (and you can clearly see HHH do one hell of a blade job while he's on the floor about to get launched) and the match just becomes more intense from that point on. The spots with Cena locking in the STFU where excellent in particular. Just when Edge is about to get FUed, HHH lowblows Cena but his Pedigree attempt fails since Cena reverses it into a Jackknife pin for the victory which smarks all over the world dreaded. It's amazing how one year of no championships worked to Hunter's advantage here. He's got fans eating out of the palm of his hands calling for him to become champion yet the year before, the very same people complained about him hogging the spotlight too much. And speaking of Hunter, what's the matter with his music around this period? Once "The Game" is played then another time "King of Kings". Usually, in the same night too.

Overall: ★★★ out of ★★★★★ (A pretty good PPV for a brand exclusive. Three great matches while the rest of the card ranges from okay to terrible. But usually, the good stuff is enough to make the PPV worth it and in this case, I say it is just that. I could have done without the awful Matt Striker/Eugene segment, though.)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread



the only difference we had was on the opener. Which I thought was one of Carlito's only "good" matches. Masters helped him through it. Although, how Kane vs Show escaped a DUD from you is kind of a mystery.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I gave the opener the "okay" rating. Not bad and not very good, just there and harmless.

And I don't have DUD in my rating system. The lowest I go is 0 and Show/Kane was not bad enough to get that although it was definitely awful.

I don't give many DUDS. Well not many that I remember.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I give them when they're deserving. Bad wrestling, booking, or if forces completely demolish a match that's when they usually come out for me.

Nothing complicated as how or why matches I view earn the lowest of low "ratings" from me.

RVD/Benjamin - ****1/4
Vince/Shane vs HBK/God - ***3/4
Triple H/Edge/Cena - ****1/4

Show is really fun, imo.

I'm not the only one who thinks the TAG TEAM MATCH is totally awesome.
