Not sure if WM 28 will be looked upon as one of the top PPV's of the decade when its all said and done. Has the HIAC and Punk/Jericho, but nothing else was beyond good. I enjoyed the PPV a whole lot, but honestly outside of those 2 matches there wasn't anything worth seeing.

Not a huge fan of the Punk/Jericho street fight either lol. Would go ***1/2 MAX for it. Took ages for me to get into it, and the crowd were pretty dead unless a big move/weapon shot was happening tbh. But Sheamus/Bryan and Cena/Lesnar were fantastic.

NM 06 is definitely worth it. Hardy/Helms is good, Londrick Vs Stevens/Idol is a good tag match, Kennedy/Undertaker is great, Benoit/Regal is fantastic, and main event 4 way is really good.

I think it will be looked back more on its historical significance rather than the matches. It had The Rocks return and the 'End of an Era' stuff.

Yeah, I can understand that. If Rock/Cena had delivered then it might have had a good shot as being remembered as a great PPV match quality wise.

Rest of the show is pretty garbage tbh (don't remember the first HHH/Orton match though).
I ended up seeing it live when it happened with a friend and being disappointed until the main event. The Punjabi Prison match might be the only match I've ever actually dozed off to.

No Mercy '06 is a really good show. And I would go with 25, but I'd put them as even.

25 positives: MITB, Steamboat's performance, HBK/Taker & a decent Edge/Cena/Show match.

27 positives: Edge/Del Rio, Rhodes/Mysterio, Taker/HHH & Orton/Punk.

So I'd say they're about even.

Awesome job K1ngOfK1ngs on the Flair/Steamboat write-ups. I often find myself struggling to the magnificence of THE TRILOGY. Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat is pro wrestling 'art' and their work in Chicago, New Orleans, and Nashville are five star wrestling masterpieces. Everyone wrestling fan should watch these matches.

Thanks to the answer Cal. Another question. Does no Mercy 06 come with Lashley/Booker from Smackdown the week after the ppv? I remember that being a pretty good match that was supposed to main event No Mercy at first.

Just watched the documentary on the new Edge DVD and found it very interesting. I always thought that Edge would be a guy who would never want to be away from the wrestling buisness, but he actually doesn't miss it all. Now most people would be saying how much they miss the fans or how much more they wanted to accomplish. But Edge set a goal to win the WWE Championship as a kid and he sure as hell did that. And when he won that belt that was it for him, there was nothing else left that he wanted to accomplish. Now I admire him so much for being honest unlike most other guys because for most wrestlers with the tough schedule they have and to hardly be at home. They would surely be happy to be leaving, even though they would miss the fans, so they can enjoy freedom and do more things they want to do in life.

A part of me wishes he was the kind of guy to crave the spotlight, because I selfishly want him to stick around. But yeah, the documentary as well as other interviews he's done, show that his mindset to his entire wrestling career is, "it was fun, but very exhausting", and he distanced himself from it somewhat because it's definitely over. The insight into his neck break and everything was done really well on the doc, and how it describes the loss of feeling he felt in his arms before announcing retirement just highlights what a physical toll it took.

what are people's thoughts on MITB at Wrestlemania 24?
I just rewatched it and I'd definitely put it in the **** range easily, a ton of great spots, I enjoyed a lot of the Punk/Jericho action including the codebreaker on the ladder, spot of the match was easily Benjamin going from the top of the ladder through the ladder on the outside

Also this match really made me smile given that of the seven guys in the match only 2 are still in the company today, really thought all the guys in this match would at some point reach main event status
