Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I still have to complete the 1997 year. Started somewhere in July and last episode I watched was a RAW episode in 1997, just before a PPV show (some of the matches were the Patriot vs Bret Hart, Taker vs HBK and Goldust vs Brian Pillman). I watched Summerslam 1997 and thought it was a poor show. Goldust vs Pillman had a botched ending and so did HHH vs Mankind in the cage match. Despite the ending, the cage match was actually good. Taker - Bret and Austin - Hart were good matches too but the rest were poor. School is preventing me from watching these 1997 shows which is a shame because I want to watch the AE years. Oh well, summer isn't far off.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

HHH/HBK HIAC isn't a bad match. It's just that it went way, way too long. 47 minutes is over kill for a HIAC match or any gimmick match. I'll probably give it about ***1/4 stars.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Check this wonderful shit out. I went over to Press Start Video Games today after the gym, searched that bitch for used wrestling DVDs. Planned on buying two, and the guy told they were doing a huge special this week. 8 DVDs for $20! That's insanity. Look at what I picked up for a $20 bill:

Bad Blood 2004 - Everyone remembers the HHH/HBK Hell in a Cell from this (never thought it was that bad of a match tbh) but there's no way that Benoit/Kane & Orton/Shelton can be anything less than good. Had to grab it.

Backlash 2005 - Never seen a single match from this show. Heard great things about the Edge/Benoit Last Man Standing match & Shelton/Jericho looks to be a big time sleeper. As long as HHH/Batista delivers, looks like a solid show.

Royal Rumble 2006 - I got this just for the Rumble. That's it.

Wrestlemania 22 - Been years since I've seen the event. Lookin forward to rewatching MITB & Cena/HHH. PLus it has the ENTIRE reincarnated episode of Saturday Night's Main Event that has that awesome Street Fight between Shane & HBK.

Wrestlemania 23 - Cena vs. Michaels!

Did I not get a deal or what!? Passed up on John Cena: My Life, Hardy Boys Twist of Fate, Vengeance: Night of Champions '08, Taboo Tuesday '05, Royal Rumble '03, and a shitty TNA ppv.

Awesome deal. I own Royal Rumble 2006 and WrestleMania 22, Backlash 2005 and WM 23 were decent shows.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Love going to a store and finding some cheap WWE DVDS, it makes me mark out like all fuck and it makes my day that much better. Those are some GREAT fucking finds honestly, with the two Manias and Backlash 2005 being complete steals. That Jericho-Benjamin match is in Benjamin's prime and legit breaks the four star barrier for me as a sleeper classic, while you get the awesomely underrated Batista vs Triple H match and the epic encounter between Edge and Chris Benoit that everybody seems to forget about.

Speaking of Wrestlemania XXIII, I need to post 10-6 on my Mania countdown list like I said I was going to do last night .

So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just rewatched CM punk/ Cena from Raw 17/01/11. Awesome Tv match. Great moves, great counters (cena catching punk doing a slingshot crossbody), the koji clutch (Cole calls it the Anaconda vise of course...).

Go watch it people, it's good to see some old punk/cena

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Speaking of 'cheapish' DVDs, I saw Summerslam 88/89, 90/91, 92/93 avalible on Silvervision for the grand price of £19.98, I imagine thats about 27USD. Worth it? Been checking around the interwebz for torrents of them, none of them 'work.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I was on Amazon and for the fuck of it decided to look up WM24. I never got it and considering it's one of my favorite Wrestlemania's ever, I was considering it. I still am considering a used copy, but good god, the new ones are $80+! That's fucking ridiculous. WM22, 23, 25, 26, and 27 are all under $10 and even WM28 is under $20 new.

Is there a reason a new copy of WM24 is so expensive? I mean besides having one of the greatest WM main events of all time, the best celebrity (non-Rock for you KOK ) match, and the (WWE) in-ring retirement of one of the top 5 greatest of all time.

I'm watching you...
