Bought a bundle of DVDs off eBay last summer and I just realized I've yet to touch No Mercy '07 yet.

Looked at the card and a couple matches interest me. I remember liking the LMS and the six man tag sounds good.

No Mercy 07 was one of those shows that was best on first watch (preferably live, but a watch without spoilers is just the same). After that, some of the matches/moments aren't quite the same . As far as match quality goes, only really remember the LMS match being good (great, actually). HHH/Umaga wasn't bad, but nothing special. Finlay/Rey wasn't as amazing as it could have been. Rest of the show is pretty garbage tbh (don't remember the first HHH/Orton match though).

Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat: The Trilogy

Match 2: Clash of the Champions VI: April 2nd, 1989

After watching the Chi-Town Rumble and hearing how Cal said this was the best of the trilogy, I was interested in seeing how this match would pan out. This is a very different match than the Chi-Town Rumble encounter, as that matchup I believe was based more off fast paced emotion and hard hitting moves, whereas this encounter is slightly slower paced, but at 3 times the length, can you really blame them ? This match features maybe the greatest matwork of all time, as the first two falls consist of beautiful headlock takedowns, front facelocks, etc. The diversity of the holds are better in this match also, as Steamboat uses variations of the Boston Crab, standing double armed chicken-wing, and even Flair's own figure four.

The psychology in this match is top notch. before Steamboat locks in the figure four, he makes sure to deliver SIXTEEN elbows to flairs left leg before applying the hold. When Flair begins his work on Steamboats legs in the third fall, Steamboat has some excellent selling that complies with the story that these two men are trying to tell inside of the ring. The logic used in this match, and the throwback to the previous match is great, as at one instance Flair is going to run from turnbuckle to turnbuckle and deliver a cross body like he did in the last match, but Steamboat catches him with a stiff chop instead. That's another thing about this match, the chops are just as solid as the Chi-Town match. The build up in the first two falls to the final fall is tremendous, as I will actually go out and say that the final fall between these two might be the greatest twenty minutes of wrestling ever. MAYBE.

The way that Flair's leg work leads us to the improbable finish is awesome, as Steamboat goes for the chickenwing hold that made Flair tap out earlier, but his legs just won't allow him to do it, leading us to our non-clean finish that sets up the final match in the trilogy. The Psychology and storytelling are off the charts here. While not as flashy and loud as the Chi-Town Rumble encounter, what it gives us in terms of matwork and storytelling is even better. I didn't want this match to end, seriously, and at 56 minutes of pure greatness, you can't really ask for very much more out of a professional wrestling match. Even better than Chi-Town Rumble.

*****

Wow, I'm absolutely PUMPED to watch the Wrestlewar match.

Glad you liked COTC more than CTR, K1ngOfK1ngs. Always been my favourite of their series. Hilarious to think that some people in the past have actually tried to claim that the only reason I ranked it higher than the other 2 is because it went longer . Because you know, the longer a match the better is it!

Been a while since I reviewed something non current (well, I've written bits here and there about matches elsewhere for the MOTD Poll I'm doing, but that's it), so I think if my DVD's show up tomorrow I'll definitely have to review them. Haven't seen the full Vengeance 03 event since it happened, only rewatched 2 matches from it since. Interested to see if it lives up to the hype as a top PPV of all time as a lot of people say it is.

Extreme Rules 2012

Orton/Kane ***1/4
Ziggler/Clay *1/4
Rhodes/Show **
Sheamus/Bryan ****1/4
Ryback/Jobbers 1/2*
Punk/Jericho ****1/4
Lalya/Bella 1/2*
Cena/Lesnar ****3/4

What a show! In 2020, this show, WM 28 and Money In The Bank 2011 will for sure be looked back on as 3 of the greatest PPV's of the decade.

The 3 main events were superb,

Bryan/Sheamus - Loved every last bit of it except for the lack of a finishing stretch.

Punk/Jericho - Awesome street fight that the crowd was into and felt old school. Great face performance by Punk, and likewish with Jericho but a great heel performance. Great way to end a feud that could of been better, but one I still enjoyed nonetheless.

Lesnar/Cena - Lesnar looked like a beast, Cena played the underdog brilliantly. There was blood, stiff shots and sick spots; what more could you want in an extreme rules match? I dont care Cena won, Lesnar came out looking like a boss as everyone was talking about his destruction of Cena after. I cant wait to see Lesnars next performance, and I am sure that whenever it next is that the buyrates for said PPV will show that most WWE fans are looking forward to it to.

Question for you guys. Do you think No Mercy 2006 is worth buying. How are the matches?

And what would you guys say is worse. Wrestlemania 25, or Wrestlemania 27.
