Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yea HBK/Shamrock nothing to write home about. IYH DX I believe was the PPV, with Rock/Austin for the IC belt, which was pretty terrible because of the giant truck driven to the ring, less a wrestling match more a segment IIRC.

Granted, haven't watched HBK/Shamrock in years, seen it only once, and it was a night I spent vomiting all night because of food poisoning. Pretty underwhelming, and just left me disapointed because the Owen Hart "Black Hart" gimmick was so cool and they were building a cool rivalry, which of course was ditched for Austin/HBK, and rightfully so.

And now I'm just left wondering how cool it would've been to give Owen a title reign.

Very. Extremely. Unlimited amount of cool.
Owen should have at least gotten a match vs Shawn. Don't believe he did. Instead he was grouped in with H. Which lead to good work, but Owen in the main event scene is too good for words.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Owen/HBK had a match at the very last Raw of '97, 12/27/97. Was actually a decent to good match, too. But I think that should have been saved for Royal Rumble '98. Then, they could have moved to HBK/Austin the night after to start the RTWM.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Owen had Undertaker & Austin to contend with. I guess WWF wised up when Owen remained with the company to use him well despite having the two other huge names in the path towards the Championship. Undertaker to finish things up with DX & begin the road down the Kane program. And Austin who was being built up for an entire year to become the top star of the company. Owen had no chance when you think about it. I suppose he could have gotten a shot down the line. Rock got in the way of that.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, it was pretty much just wishful thinking. Going off the air of IYH DX PPV with Owen attacking Shawn post match really made it look like a match at Royal Rumble was a very real possibility. Even if it was just going to be a one off at RR with WM right around the corner. Ah well, wasn't meant to be with the likes of Austin & Taker in the mix and it being WM season.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched Rock vs Y2J - No Mercy 2001 = ****1/4 rating.

Great match between the two. Second match that I have watched between these two (first one was the RAW 2001 match) and the chemistry is really awesome. I love how Jericho insults the Rock during the match . The ending of the match was weird with the Stephanie interference but it lead to Jericho cheating his way to victory so fair play.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Steph hates Jericho so much she was willing to aid Rock in defeating him.

Probably my second favorite Rock match out there. Behind vs Austin @ WrestleMania 19.

Alright. So similar to when John Laurinitis interfered in Cena - Punk match at MITB? Cena didn't need his help and that cost him the match. Same with Rock, Jericho captilised on the distraction.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Nah. Ace only got in the mix there b/c Vince told him to. No real personal attachment at the time. The Jericho/Steph situation was stemming from their long standing feud. She didn't want Jericho to "win the big one." Especially the championship that is under the company that she had stake in. It made sense.
