Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit (Wrestlemania X-7)

This is one match i have to say i rather dislike, just goes nowhere for me, seems to be from what i remember Angle going for the ankle lock the whole time (was that a certain stip-type of the match), just falls completley flat, hard to rate it above ** tbh.

Havnt seen the RR2003 match i dont think (unless i have forgot it lol).

Thought Benoit/JBL was solid at best . ***

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Man, from Wrestlemania XXI all the way to XXVI, they all just seem to blur together. I can remember when the unorthodox matches happened (Bret vs. Vince for example) but I could in no way tell you who headlined WM XXII for example. Guess that's what happens when you take a break from wrasslin'.

So what's the best order to check them out in?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Undertaker vs Kane (Wrestlemania XIV) - ★★★¼
Hulk Hogan vs Vince McMahon (Wrestlemania XIX) - ★★★½
Steve Austin vs The Rock (Wrestlemania XV) - ★★★¾
CM Punk vs Rey Mysterio (Wrestlemania XXVI) - ★★★¼
Chris Benoit vs MVP (Wrestlemania XXIII) - ★★★½
Chris Benoit vs JBL (Wrestlemania XXII) - ★★★¼
The Undertaker vs Diesel (Wrestlemania XII) - N/A
Randy Orton vs Triple H vs John Cena (Wrestlemania XXIV) - ★★★★
Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit (Wrestlemania X-7) - ★★★½
Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes (Wrestlemania XXVII) - ★★★¼

Other than the triple threat being too low, it's mostly on point.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Gee Cal it's almost like you're an Undertaker Mark or something ......

We're entering a new era of Wrestlemania events it seems. Every since The Rock's return @ XXVII it's like they've been trying to turn Wrestlemania back into that early "spectacle" event making it part wrestling, part entertainment, and part extravaganza with things like concerts and such that they took out of Mania for XXVI which almost at this point seems to be the perfect Wrestlemania in terms of booking and such. Even the intros for the last two years were very, VERY mainstream and "entertainment" centric. Vince is trying way too fucking hard to be mainstream, and the sad thing is that it's actually attracting more viewers as XXVII and XXVIII made much more money than a superior event like XXVI.

Just goes to show that when you appeal to the lowest common denominator that good things will happen financially.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wrestlemania is just one long big media campaign for the WWE now with added matches as bonuses. It's just four hours of 'we're Hollywood! we're great! everything else sucks! suck our razzly dazzly cocks!'.

Sad thing is, Monday Night Raw is slowly turning into the same thing.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The last two Wrestlemanias have been so fucking unimpressive. That should change this year with BROCK and PUNK being in two separate matches that tear shit up. Last year's Mania was a complete two match show with nothing else really going out of your way to see. I SUPPOSE if you really wanted to you could watch Rock vs Cena, especially if that match up attracts you for some reason, but other than that there's essentially nothing.

XXVII has 8 matches, four of them being terrible, one being average, two being GREAT, and one being EPIC. I seriously hope XXIX tries to do SOMETHING other than perform auto-fellatio.
