Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have a choice of two dvd sets. RAW: 15TH Anniverary, or the ladder match dvd set. Which should I get?

Christian/Shelton is probably the best TLC singles match, or I need to rewatch Flair/Edge. But yeah, ridiculously amazing match for the ECW championship.

It's probably a technically sound wrestling match, but I couldn't get into this at all. Orton has been lacking on the character front for a while now, which means I rarely can unless he's facing someone that doesn't induce extreme feelings of 'meh' like he does me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought Christian/Shelton match sucked. Giant balls. Botches everywhere. Plus, it was a ladder match, not a TLC match (just took place at the TLC PPV) .

Flair/Edge was awesome, and I seem to recall another TLC singles match being great, but I can't for the life of me remember it (NOT Cena/Edge). Ah yeah, Miz/Lawler. Need to re-watch Punk/Hardy though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well hell. I think I noticed one botch, I just dug the creativity of the spots a lot. Christian getting colour so early was a nice, unexpected touch too.

I watched Punk/Hardy the other day. It's an okay match. Waitwhat, Miz and Lawler had a TLC match? Was this at Elimination Chamber?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I just watched that Edie vs Rey match from Halloween Havoc and it was a good match and all but I really don't get how this could be voted as the best wcw match of all time. Can someone enlighten me?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hardy/Punk is the GOAT Singles TLC match, IMO.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

How many singles TLCs are there, even?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Off the top of my head:

Edge/Flair Raw 1/??/06
Edge/Cena Unforgiven 06
Edge/Undertaker ONS08
Punk/Hardy SS08
Miz/Lawler Raw 12/??/10 (I think it was December 20 anyway)

Out of those I'd rank them:

1) Edge/Cena
2) Punk/Hardy
3) Edge/Flair
4) Edge/Undertaker
5) Miz/Lawler

I'm watching you...

Punk/Jericho blew them away easily **** stars maybe **** 1/4.

The HIAC was awesome easily **** 1/2 stars.

Orton/Kane *** 1/2 another pedestrian match but better worked than Rock/Cena.

Rhodes/Show was a glorified squash match **

Team Teddy vs Team Johnny was kinda fun but definitely filler ***

Worst match of the night was a match that barely got started: Bryan/Sheamus DUD.

--I also just watched Extreme Rules again and found it far more enjoyable than WM 28

Brock/Cena **** stars, brutal match. Lesnar flying off the stairs alone was worth the price of admission. Ending made more sense when you watch it closely.

Jericho/Punk was fantastic, even better than their WM encounter. A beautiful mix of fighting and wrestling **** 7/8

Rhodes/Show wasn't much better than their Mania match ** 1/2 stars. Cody's huge bump after the match would have increased their score if it happened during the match.

Sheamus/Bryan was very good I gave it *** 7/8, it doesn't make sense that Sheamus "can't continue" during fall two and then out of nowhere he wins. That nonsense decision brought it down some to me. There should be no stigma to submitting, especially after DB got himself DQ'd to cause that injury.

Orton/Kane was also very good. Unoriginal finish with the chair spot but great action up to that point *** 1/2 stars, eclipsed their 'mania match by leaps and bounds.

Overall Extreme Rules was awesome. Action packed.
How can you say Orton/Kane at ER eclipses their Mania match by leaps and bounds and rate both matches the same?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just picked up the first ladder match DVD and i'm very excited about watching it.

Taker v Jeff Hardy
TLC 3 & 4
Edge vs Matt Hardy
Christian vs Jericho
RVD vs Eddie
Hardy vs Nitro
Armageddon 06 4 way

All of them are matches I haven't seen in years and I seem to remember really enjoying them on first viewing, so they'll be top priority (plus it's always fun to watch the first 2 TLCs & HBK vs Razor).

Fan since 2001
