Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Completely forgot about both of those series which is horrible because Jericho/Mysterio from The Bash is one of my favorite matches ever.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^ I have it at ***3/4. One of, if not the best TV match of '11.

Batista vs HHH - hell in a cell 2005

****1/2

Probably just me, but this a great match IMHO.

Batista/HHH HIAC is the best HIAC for me.

Those matches probably all hit the four star range. I think some people have the Bash around ****3/4. Just proves Rey still got it despite the IWC moaning he's slow and whatnot.

Gonna watch that match tonight. The problem with their cage match, that despite me enjoying it didn't really go anywhere. I wasn't drawn into this match thinking I'm watching something special, just a very good cage match. Whilst I like Joey Styles, he constantly overrated everything trying to put the match over too much. I know people have it high but I wouldn't feel bothered to watch it again any time soon.

On a side note, what do people think about the constant Punk hate lately? It's astonishing. He's having the best title run in a long while whilst adding credibility to the title for once. People are finding excuses about him, sand bagging, why is he calling spots, he's not all that in the ring nonsense.

I tell you now, the next IWC victim is Sheamus.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Sheamus is already getting hate after being incredibly popular on here just last Summer.

And completely agreed that Rey still has it. Even before the injury in '11 he was putting on awesome matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah he selling is poor at the moment, but I'm sure he'll improve. Once that RAW section got hold of something they'll never let it go.

Survivor Series 2003

Team Angle vs. Team Lesnar - ***1/2
Molly Holly vs. Lita - *3/4
Kane vs. Shane McMahon - **3/4
Bashams vs. Los Guerrero - **1/4
Team Austin vs. Team Bischoff - ****1/2
Undertaker vs. Vince McMahon - N/R
Goldberg vs. Triple H - **

Goldberg had one ugly WWE run and it didn't help that Trips and him had zero chemistry and was inevitable that he was going to win the title back as Trips can only go over a certain amount of times. I did really enjoy watching it from start to finish but match ratings wise it doesn't sound too interesting. The opener was so fun, and Austin/Bischoff was full of decent guys on the roster putting on a 30 minute masterclass. The gimmick matches helped break up the card but Taker/McMahon was awful. Having said that the boss of the company was certainly the best heel in the company at this time as was over the past few years, except for Trips in 2000, everyone hated him then, well me personally anyway.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really enjoyed both of the 5v5 from that show. The booking on the first one was really odd but it was still a good match. The Team Austin vs Team Bischoff one is great though. I liked Kane/Shane from that show as well.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The booking was insanely shit, it was all about Angle & Lesnar but Angle gets lost half way through, Lesnar taps to Benoit and Big Show ends up losing out to the winners that were Benoit & Cena. Made no sense whatsoever. It didn't really put Benoit over making Lesnar tapped, no one cared, it made Cena look strong but he didn't get a title shot for another 15 months, just seemed all over the place. The only thing it did do was create an opener for WM between Cena and Show at WM XX but I'm sure it wasn't meant for that, just an assumption. If it sounds confusing to read it makes no sense watching it.

Regardless of the bullshit booking, I just took the match for what it was and thoroughly enjoyed it.
