Rey Mysterio - Life of a Masked Man

Disc One
Rey Misterio Jr. & Konnan vs. La Parka & Psicosis - ***3/4

Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Eddie Guerrero - ***
Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Chris Jericho - ***1/4

Whilst it's not a bad set but it's not a great one either. Some really enjoyable matches are on it but there are also some matches that seem like they were just thrown on for the sake of it. Worth a buy if it's on sale but I wouldn't pay full price for it. Glad I bought it on sale.

This one's just matches obviously, I'm not sure what the point would be on an entire documentary on it though, because Bret and Shawn obviously had a deep rooted personal rivalry as well and it resulted in one of the most iconic moments in history. I don't think there'd be 2 1/2 hour's worth of stuff to talk about with them.

Anyway, stuff:

Shawn's documentary seems to be pretty much a rehash of his book, so I wouldn't particularly recommend it to people who have already read it. Angle vs Michaels at Vengeance was also... ehh. I didn't particularly understand what they were trying to do, so couldn't really get into it that much.

edit: by the way Triple G, according to the WWE he didn't lose because he was taken out of the MiTB so it didn't count, or something. I believe he did go into the match saying he was undefeated.

and also, I know you guys aren't so big on promos but what are the best promos of Christian?
Christian had some pretty solid promos in ECW with the likes of Regal, Swagger, etc. The stuff with Orton over the summer was really good too. Having trouble remembering his stuff pre-return but I think the Jericho/Christian promos from '04 were good.

Anyway, I was watching Wrestlemania 22 today (no real reason why, just a random Wrestlemania I haven't seen in a long time) and it reminded me how awesome Shawn Michaels vs Vince McMahon really was. Vince gets the hell beat out of him and it's fun as hell to watch. Jim Ross is also on point with his commentary and his line of "Shane just got his ass buried into his daddy's crack" is absolutely hilarious. If I had to slap a star rating onto it like Chico and Meltzer, I'd probably go ***1/2 since it is so damn fun to watch.

HHH/Cena is pretty great as well.

Watched two shows last night with a friend.

Wrestlemania XIX

Matt Hardy vs Rey Mysterio - **1/2
Taker vs Albert & Big Show - **1/2
Trish vs Jazz vs Victoria - **
Los Guerreros vs WGTT vs Benoit/Rhyno - ***1/4
Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels - *****
Triple H vs Booker T - ***1/2
Hulk Hogan vs Mr McMahon - ***
Steve Austin vs The Rock - ****1/2
Kurt Angle vs Brock Lesnar - ****1/4

Unforgiven 2006

Jeff Hardy vs Johnny Nitro - ***1/2
Umaga vs Kane - ***
Spirit Squad vs Highlanders - **1/2
Vince, Shane & Big Show vs DX - ***3/4 (I'll explain this in a moment)
Trish Stratus vs Lita - ***
Randy Orton vs Carlito - ***1/4
John Cena vs Edge - ****1/4

Love both shows. And as for the HIAC, other than the lame kiss my ass stuff, this match is BRUTAL. I didn't remember it being such an awesome bloodbath and I've never seen an ear get worked over in a match. Just absolute carnage.

On last watch, I had that HIAC at **3/4. Maybe I should give it another watch, since it's been a few years.

I'm getting through HBK's Heartbreak and Triumph set at the moment but one of the discs freezes at a certain point. Does anyone have a link to the Rockers vs Sommers/Rose match from AWA in 1987?

Probably going to watch Wrestlemania XIX tonight. Not the whole show, but the matches that matter, which are basically the final five matches on the card. Haven't seen any of those matches in a couple of years so it should be fun to re-watch them.

I was tempted to rewatch all the Wrestlemania's starting today, but then I realized that I have no desire to watch the first sixteen or so in full. I can't be alone in having this feeling?

This was my first time watching it in ages and I liked it alot more than I did before. There are a couple questionable spots but I thought it had some really brutual moments.

I agree. I like 14 because it was the first wrestling show I ever watched and there are certainly regular matches I enjoy from the older ones but not the full shows. I started off with XIX because I own 19-27 on DVD and I'm trying to get through all of them by 28.

The Trump Plaza Wrestlemania's are truly awful (with the exception of Hogan/Savage at Wrestlemania V). III is fine but I don't enjoy Savage/Steamboat as much as others and outside of that, there is really nothing that stands out outside of Hogan/Andre, which is only really good for historical purposes.

Starting with Wrestlemania 17, all of the Mania's are at least watchable if nothing else. I don't think we've had a truly "bad" Wrestlemania since 16. Even 25 and 27 were better than most of the the crap that was put out from Wrestlemania 1 through 13.
