Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So glad I own the Flair & Austin vs Sting & Steamboat tag. Love it so much.

I watched that Smackdown match after you pimped it. As far as comparing goes, I may need to refresh my memory to decide.

Austin & Flair vs. Sting & Steamboat (WCW Saturday Night 7/30/94)
World's Greatest Tag Team vs. Mysterio & Kidman (Smackdown 8/14/03) still think I'm the only person that's seen this, probably better than their Vengeance match.
I love this match. Good wrestling on TV every week on a Saturday night or Sunday evening were the best and I sort of miss that.

I have to also mention Sting/Steamboat vs. Rude/Austin from one of the COTCs in 92.

ALL I'M REALLY ASKING FOR IS YOU

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Naturally most tags during the early 90's of WCW should be mentioned.

Most meaning all that didn't include Paul Roma.

Nice! Glad to see someone actually listened. Believe I have both at **** but the SD match edges out the other due to better structure and the fucking awesome finishing sequence.

Hard to believe once upon a time Charlie Haas was in well structured matches. Blows my mind now. :sabin

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, looking at what's happened to both of them will always be a mystery. Shelton was fucking awful in ROH...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Shelton showed he was terrible even before departing with WWE. He managed to have an awful, awful match with Christian in 2009 of all years. In a LADDER match on PPV no less.

A mystery to how he lost his talent is an understatement. Irony of all of this being, his 6 minute match vs Tanaka this year from Wrestle Kingdom damn near beat everything he did in latter WWE/ROH.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Shelton probably lost motivation because WWE dropped the ball with him. So much unused potential...

Any thoughts on his match with Triple H from Smackdown in 2008? Khali interferes in the end IIRC. Thought that's a very good match but not on par with their 2004 Raw match when Shelton won by roll-up.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

lol @ the lack of motivation shtick again.

Guy was horrible on the indies too. He has nothing there now; unless in a sub-ten minute format with the right opponent.

Why do you hate it? It's pretty much true because what else could've happened? He magically lost his talent? Losing motivation may not be an excuse, but it's clearly an explanation.

And if he regressed towards the end in WWE, I see no reason as to why the indies would give him that spark to get better.
