Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought the first & Cell matches were both decent, but the submissions match seemed like a letdown.

That said, I think it would be an improvement to either career rejoin Ted & Cody.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I watched the early elimination chambers recently for the first time ever (02, 03, 05, 06) and loved them. However with the WWE doing 2 every year now, kind of makes them less important watching them, even the earlier ones. Same with HIAC, they were so epic, a brutal gimmick to end a feud but now they are dished out like candy.

I've only seen the HIAC in the DX/Legacy feud. Was a good match, Trips and Shawn were putting them over massively, now look where they are.

1] That's one reason I don't buy a lot of the MITB/Night Of Champs-style PPVs... Then again, feel similarly about "Ladder Match" & other DVD sets, which I do/did buy.

2] Cody finally lost the belt atone of their big PPVs, only to win it right back. As for Ted, I don't know or care where he is; Worst is HHH getting taken away by a guy WWE should have never brought back.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

DX/Legacy series was great. For once actual tag teams looked important.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

On DX/Legacy...

I thought the Summerslam match was fantastic and was a very nice push for the Legacy team, even in defeat. The Breaking Point match was great as well. Didn't like it quite as much as Summerslam, but still an excellent match and Legacy getting a (relatively) clean win over DX, making Shawn tap out was great as well.

The cell was good... and the best DX tag cell at least, but to me it was way too similar to the Breaking Point match... only in a cell. Because I loved the breaking point match I did like what they did, but it still was a bit boring to watch again. HHH though saved the day this time, and DX beat Legacy, which was the big difference from Breaking Point. I would say out of all the matches, Legacy looked the weakest against DX in the cell, as while they did man-handle Michaels on their own, and played a very smart game of locking HHH out, once HHH got in it's like Legacy was just another tag team to be squashed. I'm not sure they got in any offense once HHH got in.

But besides that, the feud did a great job of putting Legacy over... only thing is it didn't help them once they split up. Cody started back at the bottom but worked his way up to where he is now. As for Ted... poor Ted.

I'm watching you...

Ted.

I thought that feud as a whole played off Legacy as a really smart tag team.

I would name that famous "Smackdown Six" No Mercy tag, but hell, the only time I watched it was like a year ago and it was two inches across and grainy. I need to actually buy the show, but I do remember quite liking it. They had a few more tag matches on Smackdown which are obviously stellar too.

Bought NYR07 because of the DX/Rated RKO tag match. Again, remember liking that one but it's still in the "to watch" pile.

There was a sort of scramble match in 1999's Summerslam that I quite liked too. They showed the kind of 'young daredevil tag teams' thing that they were pushing the TLC men under. Wait a second, speaking of which, duh:

My favourite tag team match is TLC I, end of post.
