You removed a 5 star match from your list because Flair decided to wrestle again? Bit extreme going from the full 5 to ***1/2 too. Some people flutter around ****1/2 to ****3/4 but not decrease it that badly.

I was making a joke . Austin101 took his rating down for the match as soon as Flair wrestled again . I originally had it at ***1/4 and went down to ***1/2 on a re-watch simply because it didn't hold up very well. And I did that before he came out of retirement too .

Owen vs Bulldog is indeed awesome. It had a little of everything from athleticism to intensity, good story of both guys going all out while attempting to stay respectful. Perfect match.

The Ric Flair Ultimate Collection & Randy Savage collections are must haves for fans of old school matches. Any Ric Flair collection (including the Horsemen) is worth having in your archives.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Anyone else think that John Cena/Edge TLC at Unforgiven 06 is an awesome match? Some brutal spots, a hot crowd, and a sick sick (Edge going through the two tables spot) ending to end a long well built rivalry. Put both men over big time, and it was there performances that did it, not the fact that JR doing a great job on commentary.

Unforgiven 2006

Nitro/Hardy ***1/4
Kane/Umaga *1/2
Sprit Squad/Highlanders **
DX/McMahon's + Show ***3/4
Trish/Lita ***
Carlito/Orton **1/2
Cena/Edge ****1/2

Hardy and Nitro was a fun match on Jeff's PPV return, hated the ending though, a superstar should not be knocked out for 3 after a throw to the head of a boot.

Umaga & Kane was just a big brawl that went nowhere, pretty disappointing, Umaga looked very strong going into the Cena series later that year, but I still think he should of won clean and destroyed Kane.

Tag match was just a standard tag match, nothing wrong with it, nothing to see though.

HIAC was great fun, one of the funnest HIAC's I have seen, great performances from all 5 men. I don't think we could of expected anything better given DX's 3 opponents, but they gave as good as they got and put on a great brutal bloody show. I hear some people don't like the fact this was a 'comedy' HIAC (nor do I agree with it that much) but the feud was about DX's (very poor) comedy so it should be incorporated in the ending of the feud. And yeah a great way to end a feud that I enjoyed more than others.

Lita/Trish was a great bow out to Trish and Lita at that who left 2 months later, they put on there best match together and the crowd got really into it which was nice to see as it was Trish's last match.

Orton/Carlito was just a standard match with a great ending, this was one of the first of many RKO's out of nowhere which I still love even to this day.

And Cena/Edge as I have said was fantastic.

I was going to say, got your smiley back I see!

Austin101 is firmly alive at wwedvdnews. I gotta admit I do miss him as he was the most stubborn poster of all time, he never thought he was wrong. Everyone looked forward to his reviews and match ratings though, I'll give him that.

Oh he did do play by play reviews and I hate them. Austin goes with the left hand, Rocky back with a right, clothesline, now out to the outside, brawling, into the steel steps, what a match! Austin now back in the ring, the referee starts the 10 count..... the most annoying reviews ever.

Seabs brought it back for me . Finally got an Admin on my payroll .

Austin101 went insane on WWEDVDNews too. Deleted all his reviews and claimed he wasn't going to do any more until Vince inducted Savage into the HOF .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You're welcome for the smiley Cal.

Edit: I guess my post didn't do anything.

I love Unforgiven '06

Nitro/Hardy - ***1/2
Umaga/Kane - ** (fun match)
SS/Highlanders - **
DX/McMahons & Show - ***1/2 (Hate the booking once DX makes their comeback but up until then it's great. Really good beatdowns on DX)
Trish/Lita - ***1/4
Carlito/Orton - *** (solid little match)
Cena/Edge - ****1/4

Really like that show. Might even watch it once I finish watching the May '08 episodes of iMPACT. I know what you're wondering, why the fuck did he buy the '08 season of iMPACT? But it was really cheap and I'm hoping for some good tag stuff.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not as high on Edge/Cena TLC as most. Around ***1/2 on last watch. Still their best match along with the LMS in 09(?). Thought the rest of their matches were pretty trash.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really like the LMS from Backlash '09. Didn't care for their '06 matches (other than TLC) but I didn't hate the Summerslam one.
