WWF Over the Edge 1998 review

Really cool video package to start off the PP highlighting the Austin/Dude Love/McMahon storyline.

Match 1: DoA vs. LoD 2000 1/2*
Man, DoA sure did suck. Just a boring match, LoD couldn't do much to make it any better, DoA's offence was just so crappy. One of them misses a shitty looking elbow drop that probably would've missed even if Hawk didn't move. They seem to mistime the finish with Droz's interference and it just seems awkward. Lucky it doesn't last too long, it's a total dud match and I honestly can't wait for the DoA to disappear so they can stop facing the LoD over and over and over again.

Match 2: Jeff Jarrett vs. Steve Blackman **
There is nothing bad about this match, it's just not very interesting

Match 3: Sable vs. Marc Mero
Haha, Mero is such a dick. Won't give it a rating, there were no expectations for this match from me, it was just an entertaining segment really.

Match 4: Kaientai vs. Bradshaw & Taka Michinoku 3-on-2 handicap match ***
This was fun, Kaientai work fairly well together. The finish was okay. Bradshaw was in the ring taking out the other two members of Kaientai while Togo hit Taka with a top rope senton and pinned him. The extra man advantage helps them get the win.

Match 5: Farooq vs. The Rock **
Pretty meh. Doesn't last long, but nothing bad here either. Rock gets a dirty pin with his feet on the ropes. Farooq proceeds to give him a couple of piledrivers. The Nation come out to attack him, then DX come out to drive away the Nation.

Match 6: Vader vs. Kane. **
Apparently this is Mask vs. Mask, but I don't remember that being announced on Raw, unless I just wasn't paying attention. This is okay for what it is. Nothing good, but again nothing terrible. Kane hits a tombstone for the win. I can understand having the match to tease Kane losing his mask, but it's not as if you couldn't tell what Vader looked like with the mask on anyway. Vader then calls himself a 'big fat piece of shit.' That caught me off guard.

Michael Cole is out and the honour Mad Dog Vachon and The Crusher. Lawler gets involved, tries to take the wooden leg of Vachon but Crusher punches him a couple of times. This went on for a little too long but it was an entertaining segment otherwise.

Match 7: The New Age Outlaws & Triple H vs. Kama, D-Lo & Owen Hart **1/2
This match barely held my interest at all to be honest. The finish was alright though with Owen hitting the pedigree on Triple H, to finally get a win over him.

They take their time giving long introductions for Patterson, Brisco and McMahon. Lots of ass-kissing, it's pretty funny. Patterson gives a good intro for Dude Love as well and he comes out looking good and with a suit jacket on. Patterson then runs Stone Cold down and refuses to introduce him. This whole segment took a good 10 minutes but I thought it was pretty fun to watch.

Match 8: Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Dude Love ****1/2
This is a classic here. It's a great brawl and it's wild as hell. I love how they change the rules as they go. Having Undertaker out there as an enforcer was a good idea so they could have a somewhat fair match where McMahon was forced to call it properly. It doesn't feel overbooked. Everything felt like it had a purpose, everything that happened had a reason behind it. Most of all it's just such an entertaining match to watch. Foley and Austin worked their asses off for this match. They performed really well and made each other look great. It's also great to see Vince and the stooges beginning to be such pricks. The match, the angle, the characters are all just fantastic and it's nothing like anything I've seen before from 96 onwards. It all seems very original.

Overall, this is an okay show, but nothing more. The excellent main event saves it from being bad. Everything on the under card is just so mediocre, it's a shame really. Go out of your way to watch the main event, don't bother with the rest.

Gonna watch Taker-Edge first thing tomorrow as I'm tired as fuck, then probably tomorrow after EC I'll watch most of XXV before the main event puts me to sleep with how god awful it is. To think that there was a point in my life that I defended HHH-Orton and said it was a decent match .

If Taker-Edge is as good as I originally remember then it should have absolutely no trouble cracking my top 15-20 at this point. Three of my top my five are basically already set in stone at this point as I can't see more than two matches able to pass either of them, even though there's an outside shot at one or two other matches potentially making the top five but that's if I REALLY bring shit down on a rewatch.

Can't wait to see how the final tenth of this top 50 Wrestlemania matches in history pans out, as well as the battles for WORST and BEST Manias, underrated matches, overrated matches, MR. WRESTLEMANIA, and MR. GETTHEFUCKAWAYFROMWRESTLEMANIA.

Taker closed out the show and he did it superbly
I haven't watched the show in years so I cant remember much about the match it's self apart from Undertaker posing with the title as the show goes of the air like but for me I don't think I'll look back at the moment in say ten years and think to myself thats what makes Wrestlemania what it is today.

It's not a moment like Hogan slamming Andre or Rock and Hogan standing in the same ring with a red hot crowd or Eddie and Chris both holding world titles at WM20 those are the sort of moments I'll look back on know that was a great moment. and for me Flair and Shawn fits into that group and nothing else on that card does.

Undertaker vs Edge is pretty damn great from WrestleMania. Such a wonderful event. I'm a big fan. Even if I don't think the MITB is as great as some think it is on here. Punk wins, so it deserves a bit of praise from myself.

Nah. I will tomorrow while I wait for Elimination Chamber to happen. I promise.

I was too busy watching old school '97 RAW's.

Anything with Undertaker IMO.

Austin too considering he really was the hottest guy around that year. Vader vs Shamrock from A Cold Day In Hell. Foley vs HHH from KOTR is an underrated match. Canadian Stampede is a great PPV. Any random RAWs will be worth your time. A ton of fun. I was vague on the RAWs since the only match I know that jumps out is Austin & Michaels vs Owen & Smith from May.

I use to only watch RAW because of Austin anyway. He was my no.1. Other then that I think I watched WCW more at the time.

I flipped back and forth at the time. It was more during 1998 that I knew I took Nitro over RAW.

I had to see Undertaker's moments as champion during '97.
