Someone wrote up a good review on the SNME DVD a while back in this thread but I can't remember who.

Watched The Rock's doc yesterday. Wasn't anything great but wasn't too bad either. Didn't go in depth into any of his feuds at all though.

Had nothing to do today, so just finished watching Wrestlemania 21 again. Did up a quick review of it.

Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio - ***
I've seen some pretty bad criticisms of this match before, some go as far as calling it Eddie's worst ever match. I think that's a bit harsh, it's a solid match, and a good choice to open the show. Would've maybe preferred to see Eddie get the win, but if I remember correctly Eddie turned full on heel not long after this (I could be wrong on that), so I guess it was necessary.

MITB 1 - ****
Not my absolute favourite MITB, but it'd be up there. Shelton steals the show (what a surprise) in this one, the highlight of the match is the infamous run up the ladder spot, and he pulls out a T-Bone off a ladder. The Benoit headbutt is a bit cringe-inducing looking back, but it's a great spot for what it was. This was the birth of Edge's main-event push, so it's a historic match for the fact that it was the beginning of a HOF'ers big-time run, if nothing else.

Undertaker vs Randy Orton - ****

Probably the best streak match yet at the time, and possibly the time when (if ever) it should have ended. Would've put Orton over massively, and maybe they wouldn't have had to put as much work into him as they did subsequently. The Chokeslam into an RKO is one of my favourite counters ever.

Trish Stratus (C) vs Christy Hemme (Women’s Championship) - 1/2*
Errm, yeah, not a whole lot to say about this, apart from the fact that it's painful to watch. Christy was awful in the ring. Just plain awful.

Shawn Michaels vs Kurt Angle - ****1/2
I love this match. It's just plain awesome. My only gripe with it is the ending, it came across as a bit of an anti-climax with Michaels having been in the Ankle Lock for so long and then just tapping out. Feels a bit dragged out. Other than that though, nothing bad to say about it. Angle being frustrated by Michaels mat wrestling at the start is great, we get the obligatory HBK back working, and the Angle Slam from the top is fucking sweet.

Big Show vs Akebono - DUD
To this day I don't get what the point in this was, I doubt Akebono drew a whole load of PPV buys, which is usually the idea behind the 'celebrity' matches. Doesn't go on long enough to warrant taking the ropes off the ring in the middle of the fucking PPV either.

JBL (C) vs John Cena (WWE Championship) - **1/2
I was surprised by this, there are audible boos for Cena during this, back in 2005. I honestly didn't think the Cena-hate was around that far back. But yeah, it's not great. The birth of Super-Cena, who gets his ass kicked for the whole match, then makes his miraculous comeback we've seen hundreds of times since. JBL's epic reign deserved a better ending than this.

HHH (C) vs Batista (World Heavyweight Championship) - ***1/2
Solid enough main-event. Motorhead provide the music for HHH's entrance, and it's utter garbage. Flair provides a couple of distractions for HHH to go for belt shots/low blows, and Batista still overcomes him with relative ease. We don't even get a Pedigree in this which is disappointing. Other than that though, it was a well executed slow build, and the younger guy goes over. Logical booking 101.

Overall it's a good show, not one of the best Wrestlemanias, but far from the worst. 7/10.

Just another thing I noticed from watching WM21. Remember this guy from WM25 and WM26 in the I Hate Cena shirt shouting abuse at Cena after his matches at both shows?



Well here he is at ringside at WM21, in a Cena t-shirt...



EDIT: shit, sorry for the double post

SNME set is one of the most fun releases ever. Only maybe... 2 legit "great" matches, with everything else being super fun at the very least. A great throwback to that era and those characters. Tremendous nostalgia trip watching it.

I've never saw that event before either but will be ordering it later, £5.99 from silvervision sounds a bargain.

SNME DVD set is one of my fav sets the WWE released of its own material. Its some really good stuff on there. I've watched something on there regularly since I bought it months ago.

Anyone knows why SilverVision doesn't show Pre-Orders anymore?

Everyone's thoughts on Backlash 2001. Personally I think it was good but some matches weren't great. However it's worth it for Angle/Benoit.

I like it a lot. Love the main event tag match more than most, Angle/Benoit is probably my favourite match between them, Rhyno Vs Raven is such a fun hardcore match, 6 man tag is enjoyable and a solid tag bout, Shane Vs Show is a ton of fun. Regal/Jericho probably not as good as it should have been given the talent involved. Same for the triple threat, but I wouldn't call ANYTHING on this show bad.
