Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I fucking LOVED Trips/Taker from 27 on the first two watches, but when I paid the most attention on the 3rd, it definitely has its downfalls. Sooooo much downtime inbetween the finisher fest it turns into during the middle of the match, but I still absolutely love the first 10 minutes or so and the last few, especially that fucking EPIC tombstone nearfall. I've settled at *** 3/4, but the rating doesn't do the spectacle aspect of it justice.

I expect ratings for that RAW/SD set, KOK!

Watched The Shield vs. Jericho, Ryback, & Sheamus from last week's RAW since everyone apparently loved the shit out of it. Certainly an enjoyable match but not quite on the level of their Chamber affair. Isolation on Sheamus wasn't as good as the Cena version (even though we missed most of it) and the finish, while still chaotic, wasn't as glorious as the spear spots from EC. Still a great tv match though & I love Sheamus's interaction with Ambrose & Reigns. *** 1/2

Heard good stuff about Jericho/Bryan & Punk/Jericho. Do I need to see both? I'm talkin MOTYC level or not.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watch both just so you can compare the two and join the argument as to which is better. I'm team Jericho-Punk at the moment but neither is my current WWE TV MOTY, as that token is currently taken by the Ryback-Punk TLC match that happened on the first show of the year. We have gotten quite a few great TV matches so far this year though so I can't complain. PUNK DA GAWD and the selling of that knee though, we're going to need a Punk-Henry type match to beat that one for sure.

OH the ratings are coming don't worry, and I might as well just let you know right now ; this set isn't NEARLY as strong as the 2011 set, far too many random "Damien Sandow vs Sheamus/Orton" matches that are just THERE and not anything significant. I fail to understand why Punk-Henry from 4/2/12 isn't on here, or Bryan-Cena or Bryan-Rey or any of those matches, while we get a smattering of random Randy Orton matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2001 doesn't have a five star match from me, but I wouldn't hesitate for a second to say that it's perhaps the greatest in-ring year in WWE history.

- GOAT RAW Match
- GOAT SD Match
- GOAT WWF/WWE Tag Match
- GOAT Summerslam Match
- Steve Austin GOD MODE
- GOAT Ladder Match

The only problem was that GAME wasn't there for a majority of the year .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2001 is such an awesome year. The WM17 main event is definitely a five star match for me. Second comes Austin/Benoit only a quarter away from full five. Just think how much better it would've been with Benoit and GAME active the entire year and not taken out by those damn injuries!

To continue rating KOK's WM matches:

Undertaker vs Triple H (Wrestlemania 17) - ★★★★
Stone Cold vs Shawn Michaels (Wrestlemania XIV) - ★★★
Undertaker vs Randy Orton (Wrestlemania 21) - ★★★★
Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage (Wrestlemania V) - N/A
Triple H vs The ROCK vs Mick Foley vs Big Show (Wrestlemania 2000) - ★★★

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching the Attitude Era DVD feeling all nostalgic. Also I think (hope) it's obvious that there is going to be a second Volume.

If you're referring to HHH/Austin vs Jericho/Benoit as the Best Raw match, eh. I can see that and probably wouldn't disagree.

Austin/Benoit isn't better than Eddie/Mysterio 6/23/05 as far as Smackdown goes. I'd probably rank Benoit/Finlay 5/5/06 and Mysterio/Orton 4/7/06 ahead of it as well when it comes to personal preference. Would not be surprised if Finlay/Hardy 6/22/07 also goes ahead of it eventually given I seem to fall in love with it more and more with every viewing.

Rockers vs Orient Express Royal Rumble 1991, Rockers vs Brainbusters 3/18/89 and Eddie/Tajiri vs Team Angle 5/22/03 are better company tags than Austin/HHH vs Benoit/Jericho 5/21/01 imo as well.

Austin/Angle I could see as the best Summerslam match. Not a lot else really jumps out to me as being in contention. Austin is sensational and Angle puts in arguably his best ever performance. Finish is also wonderful.

Austin in '01 was certainly his peak as a worker. He was very good in years prior but everything just came together in that one year.

Benoit/Jericho is a top 3 ladder match in company history for me alongside Sheamus/Morrison TLC '10 and then one of the Razor/HBK matches which I haven't seen in years. I wouldn't begrudge anyone ranking it the best ladder match and in all honesty at present I'd probably be inclined to agree.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

- GOAT RAW Match - Bret/Owen 3/3/97
- GOAT SD Match - Undertaker/Angle 03
- GOAT WWF/WWE Tag Match - You know, I'm not too sure. Certainly not the Power Trip/ChrisX2 match though. I SHALL THINK.
- GOAT Summerslam Match - Angle/Lesnar 03
- GOAT Ladder Match - Benoit/Jericho 01 (so that's one right ).
