Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd take Benoit v Finlay over any Eddie match in WWE, but the 6/23/05 Eddie/Rey is close (I could see myself going back and forth - both are my top 2 for WWE in the 2000s regardless) and is better than any other Benoit match in WWE. Benoit's second best WWE match for me is the Austin match on SD, and Eddie's match with JBL at Judgment Day 04 is every bit as good as that.

Also, Lance Storm wasn't good. At anything. I mean he wasn't a good wrestler, as in in-ring worker 'work rate' whatever you want to call it. He just flat out wasn't good at all. No idea why he got this 'technical master of his craft' following or whatever.

Which one - Judgment Day or the King of the Ring tournament?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The last time I tried watching Benoit/Jericho, I fell asleep. Just couldn't get into it. But I have the event so I may try to give it another watch at some point because of the amount of praise it's getting here, but meh.

The best singles ladder match is Jericho vs. HBK No Mercy

People say Shelton was the MVP of that match but they would be wrong ; Shelton was just the spot monkey. MITB ONE was Benoit's match.
I thought both men were great but Shelton got so much praise because he wowed the crowd. Why do people have to be so hard on wrestlers on perform spots? Guys like Jeff Hardy, Shelton, and others get so much shit in performing the style that works best for their character and abilities and it's what got the crowd over for them so I never did see the problem with it.

@ both.

Finlay vs Benoit is amazing. So damn great.

That's pretty much my pick for number 2. Sub out pretty much b/c I can't think of anything else I like more outside of TLC I. Still probably have Jericho vs Michaels over it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Either of the HBK/Razor ladder matches would be decent picks too, but personally I'm not a fan. I understand that what they did in the match was monumental at the time, but going back now and watching it in this day and age where we have seen so many cool things involving ladders in wrestling, it's hard to rate it highly.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I love em. Great matches.

WrestleMania has Summerslam edged out by a tiny bit. Botched finish at Summerslam does help that, but I do prefer WM overall as it is.

Excited to press play for that SD episode tomorrow. Gonna finish tonight with one of the 2009 chambers (WWE Title), though.

I agree. I don't understand the hate for "spot monkeys" at all. Specially for Jeff Hardy. It's not like he's Shane McMahon where he's not capable of much more beyond WOW-worthy spots.
