Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

No Regal, Finlay, or Eaton on these "all time greats" lists is too bad. Guess it's a sign WWE has gotten to the masses entirely. You want to talk about men who made matches special. Their traits, nuances, and ability to be classified as ring generals is truly brilliant. Withstanding any form or time or exposure all three managed to make lemonade out of lemons. Certainly on a higher level than a Triple H or an Edge. (can't believe Edge got a mention, actually.)

What were you watching? Edge was the greatest superstar to compete in ladder/tlc matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Only one singles TLC match was worth seeing involving Edge. And he wasn't even the driving force behind it being great. Flair earns the honors.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wasn't aware TLC II was a singles TLC match.

It wasn't Cena or Edge's best match. Especially not Cena's. Has his entire 2007 been lost on you? Umaga Last Man Standing from Royal Rumble is excellent.

No arguing there that cena/umaga was great. I still rate cena/edge ahead of cena umaga though. Just my opinion. That tlc match had excellent spots, especially the finish.

Cena/Edge tlc: ****1/2

Cena/Umaga RR 07: ****

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So much of the match was contrived. Cena was very out of place. It showed. No mater how many times he's worked the gimmick, Edge isn't the type of wrestler to lead another through a match. It didn't work out very well for me. It's ok at best.

Nah, I wouldn't exactly call it Cena's best match. It was a good match, don't get me wrong, but it tends to get overrated by some. There were some dull parts to that match but overall, I enjoyed it.

By the way, does anyone have any favorite Velocity gems? Mine would be Paul London vs Akio's series of matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Benoit vs Regal

Wouldn't be much of a gem anymore. So maybe I'd have to pick, ideally, the majority of matches with Tajiri involved. He had a match vs Paul London in late '03 that runs through my mind as one of my personal favorites. To his credit, London had his share of wonderful matches on the program too. (London vs Kazarian = )
