No love for Warrior / Savage?

I thought it was remarkable.




It is common to hear of a peasant's dream of striving for knighthood as an
escape from hardship, but who would ever think it possible?

Don't agree with Austin/HHH being HHH's best match (that belongs to his match with Foley at RR), but it is better than any of Taker and HHH's matches imo.

As for Summerslam matches to watch, from best-worst my top 5 off the top of my head:

Angle/Austin SS01
Taker/Edge SS08 HIAC
HBK/HHH SS02 Street Fight
Angle/Lesnar SS03
Rock/Lesnar SS02

This is just off the top of my head quickly, but the only ones cemented are the top. 3-5 aren't as concrete.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

There are plenty of other SummerSlam matches I love. Warrior/Savage is one of them along with Taker/Hart, Angle/Mysterio, Benoit/RVD, Rock/Brock, Hart Foundation/Brain Busters, Hart Foundation/Demolition, Hardy/Punk, etc.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

@Ruiner87 Randy Orton's best match ever right there; also, my MOTY for 2007.

Best SummerSlam matches? Bret Hart vs. Dave Boy Smith (1992), TLC I (2000), Kurt Angle vs. Steve Austin (2001), Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H (2002), and Kurt Angle vs. Brock Lesnar (2003).

There have been other fantastic matches in SummerSlam history but those matches are the ones. I'm not fond of Bret/Perfect from SummerSlam 1991. It's a good match and THE moment for Bret Hart, but their KOTR match--two years later--puts it to shame. Can't blame it though. THIS (KOTR) was Perfect at his best, while SummerSlam 1991 saw Perfect at his crippled best.

Mr. Perfect was indeed perfect.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk Cena from Summerslam was great as well, obviously not as good as MITB but still fantastic. Unfortunately it lead to Del Rio getting the title after

Proud supporter of PWG, probably the best wrestling company in the universe. Probably.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk/Cena from Summerslam was a better match than MITB imo. It was almost perfect apart from the end but even that I didn't have a problem with. The crowd was great (not as good as MITB of course) and the match they worked was amazing. That was my WWE MOTY last year, I had it rated at ****3/4.

Last time I watched the HHH/Foley street fight I didn't think it was as good as I remembered, but still really good obviously. I personally prefer HHH/Shwan from Summerslam 02 I think.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I like a lot of Triple H matches, but his absolute best performances have to be Fully Loaded against Chris Jericho and Vengeance against Batista. Thinking about it, the performance he put at last year's WrestleMania is right up there as well. I'm just talking of performances here.

On the same topic, I really ADORE this match between Hunter and Jeff from No Mercy 2008.

I'm watching the Edge DVD at the moment, it's telling a really good story but the production is a little weak. They could have been a bit more cutting edge (pardon the pun) with it.

They totally skipped the Rated RKO era which is a load of BS
