MachoMadness1988, what are your favorite tag team matches?

Another one I want to mention is Austin/Michaels vs. Owen/Bulldog from Raw 5/26/97. The pace they set is insanely good and all four guys' chemistry together was close to flawless in this match. HOT tag team match.

I love both Taker/Michaels WM matches, but I'm starting to think the first one slightly edges out the second. Theres just something in the atmosphere surrounding the match that raises it higher for me, but I could easily change my mind with another watch of both.

Is Michaels/taker from WM 25 really a spot fest? I've seen a few posts calling the match a spot fest. Confused!

Not a spot fest at all.

However I like the 26 one more, but they're both incredible.

Well technically, it does have plenty of spots in it. But the term spot fest has been killed on this forum. People use it as a negative, when actually its HOW and WHY the spots are done that makes it a positive or negative. Undertaker/HBK uses the spots to bring in the crowd and add emotion and play off both characters and their history together and their careers in general.

That said, I prefer their WM 26 match . Both are ***** for me though.

Cal, you need that smiley back.

Just finished giving Summerslam '09 a full watch.

Ziggler/Mysterio - ***3/4
Swagger/MVP - **1/4
Jerishow/Cryme Tyme - **1/4
Kane/Khali - DUD
DX/Legacy - ****
Regal/Christian - DUD
Cena/Orton - **1/2
Hardy/Punk - ****1/2

Really strong show but fuck I hate that Orton/Cena match.

I really do. Talk to Headliner for me, will ya?

Glad someone else hates that Cena/Orton match. Though you probably like their 07 (?) SS match, which means you still suck .

^I thought spot-fest was used to describe matches in which spots are executed with no rhyme or reason? I also prefer the Wrestlemania XXVI match between the two.

Speaking of which, who is everyone's favourite opponents (and partners actually, now that we're on the subject of tag matches) for their favourite wrestlers? Some of my preferences are:
Shawn and Undertaker against each other
Edge against Cena, with or against Christian
Jericho against Shawn or Benoit

I could never do a single favourite match. I'm indecisive. I will do one on a favourite, once I decide which one.

A spot fest is used to sum up TLC I, II & III. Saying Michaels/Taker is, sums up the mentality of the WWE section.

I think the reason for this is that when you rewatch these types of matches you lose the shock factor, and suspense. It's alot better when watching live.
