Oh, yeah, I get ya. They mostly did the ring switcharoos for the first half, which are somewhat ehh but also necessary to prevent the inevitable clusterfuck from happening. There was a bit of a Jericho/ADR alliance, and then the ending sequence that heavily featured all four men. The end was a clusterfuck, but the good kind. Reversals and finishers and reversals to the reversals, I really enjoyed it. More time would have harmed, rather than helped it.

The commentary didn't help the match either. King was actually confused as to why Jericho and Del Rio were helping each other, because "its not an elimination match". When the fuck did he get so damn retarded?

It was no Backlash 07 4 way anyway . More of a Backlash 08 4 way, except it felt too quick, and the BL 08 match dragged on forever. And had eliminations. So working together made sense there .

On an unrelated note, I think my painkillers have kicked in .

Could anyone recommend a few Great Muta matches to look out for?

No. Well, he has a couple. I'm sure. I remember one being not bad. Forgot who it was against. Maybe Barry Windham? Honestly in 99.9% of the matches I've seen the guy in, he's fucking sucked . He should just be called Muta cos there ain't nothing great about him.

Edit: Arn Anderson Vs Great Muta - Power Hour 12/01/1990 . Not Windham, but close enough, another Horsemen .

King has been suffering from dementia for a while now.

I love the Backlash '07 four way. One of my favorite matches.

Backlash 2007 Fatal 4 Way was awesome as was the PPV.

Hell Backlash 2008 and 2009 were fucking immense too. I miss it but I do enjoy Extrene Rules, it's consistently good.

Backlash '04, '05 and '06 are really good too.

Love Backlash PPVs.

Backlash 00 is one of the greatest PPV's of all time. 01 is a ton of fun. 02... don't remember anything from it outside of Eddie/RVD which was great and Austin/Undertaker which only me and about 2 other people thought was good .

Off to watch the first disc of the COTC DVD I picked up today, which means that I have to watch Flair vs Sting again, a match that I remember being very MEH on. Looking forward to a few matches on this, should have one of the first reviews posted Thursday-Fridayish so that makes me very excited.

On the whole "Backlash/Extreme Rules" ordeal, in the WWE Era (03-present):

2003: Average
2004: PPV of the Year
2005: Great
2006: Good
2007: Great
2008: Good
2009: PPV of the Year
2010(Extreme Rules): Good
2011(Extreme Rules): Good
2012(Extreme Rules): FANTASTIC

PS: I've been hunting through previous pages to try and find that "Top 100 WCW matches" list that Cal posted quite a while back. Could somebody post it in a spoiler or something? I'd be most interested in reading it again.
