I might go ahead and rewatch a HUGE amount of Bret matches, just to come up with a top 10-20 or something. As of right now though, he's in my top 5 all time in terms of in-ring, and perhaps top 10 in terms of the total package (he was just THAT good in the ring, fantastic workrate mixed with excellent psychology, knew pacing perfectly).
Wait, WHAT???!!!! You are meeting THE Bret Hart!!!

Always been my favorite wrestler since i started watching back in '88, always an honest worker, great wrestler, i also learnt so much from his book, you are one lucky man mate,

He is up there for me with any of the best, such a well respected man with every other professional he worked with, loved his Hart Foundation tag matches with Jim as much as the singles matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

What is everyone's favourite match that isn't particularly very well known or spoke about a lot, in the mood to watch some entertaining wrestling.

Shelton Benjamin/Chris Jericho - Backlash '05
CM Punk/Rey Mysterio - Capitol Punishment '11
RVD/Benoit - Summerslam '02

Three matches I really enjoy that I just don't remember hearing much about in here.

As Punk/Mysterio is still in my memory and one of my favourite matches of last year, I think I am going to give RVD/Benoit (from my favourite Summerslam ever) a watch again and also give Benjamin/Jericho a watch, don't at all remember it. Thanks!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Edge/Benoit Last Man Standing: BL 05

or a little something more recent...

Triple H/CM Punk No DQ: NOC 11 .... Fucking LOVE that match, in my top 10 of 2011.

Agreed with both of those. I almost always forget about Edge/Benoit when I think of Backlash '05 which is odd because they're two of my favorite wrestlers of all time.

And on a second watch when I was less confused, I enjoyed Punk/Trips.

Make sure you've got something planned to say to him, one of my biggest regrets when I met him a couple of years ago and just totally blanked and had nothing to say to him, just got a photo with him and left, felt like a twat

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I met Hogan at this meet and greet event last year and it was an absolute blast. He really knows how to carry himself in public, and brings positive energy with him wherever he goes it seems. Got a photo op with him, got some stuff signed, I'm gonna get the same stuff with Bret and Nash this time. I would imagine that the Bret experience might even be better, seeing that I'm a Canadian and he seems to have a soft spot in his heart for citizens of his home country. He REALLY needs an unreleased collectors DVD like Hogan got.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Vengeance 2005

Carlito/Benjamin - **3/4
Victoria/ChristyHemme - 3/4*
Kane/Edge - **
Michaels/Angle - ****1/4
Cena/Jericho/Christian - ***1/2
Batista/HHH - ****1/2

First half was fun, nothing special, and then the second half came and made this one of the greatest PPV's of the decade. I dont agree when people say that this HIAC match made Batista, I think he was made as soon as he won the Rumble, but this win definately cemented him as one of the main faces of the WWE. It was a brutal match, the barbed wire chair bits were sick.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Thoughts on Bret Hart? Great storyteller, and was able to do so much with so little (for a guy often called a great technical worker by people who think being technical is doing fancy mat work and having a bazillion moves). Really his "mat work" was as basic as it got, and his moveset was limited, but he executed it perfectly (or excellently, hence the nickname lol) and worked it all into his matches perfectly. Not as high on him now as I was a few years back, but I still consider him one of the all time greats. Has a great catalogue of matches which holds up very well, and while he was never a wizard on the mic, I loved his heel stuff in 97.
