Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I had a blackout at home so I had to watch something and luckily, I had some matches from earlier in the 2000's on my iPhone. Ended up watching Benoit/Angle vs. Edge/Mysterio vs. Los Guerreros from Survivor Series.

I enjoyed it. It wasn't on the level of the encounters between Benoit/Angle vs. Edge/Mysterio straight up, but the Guerreros added that extra dynamic when they were involved, and even when they weren't because of how they played it smart and mainly were involved when Angle and Benoit got eliminated. With the talent in the match, it's a given you'd get a great match and I really enjoyed this one.

I'd give this match a ***3/4. I'm probably gonna start digging for more matches around this time (2002/2003, especially from the Smackdown side).

Gosh could you imagine, rey's an incredible worker and babyface, bryan could let out his agressive douchebag heel style and gosh they would play off each other so well. Give them 15-25 minutes and they would put on MOTYC type matches.

Had little interest in the greatest finishers DVD when they announced it but I have to say I'm impressed with the match listing.

The storytelling of the match is top notch. You have Buckland for the first time after 11 years challenging for WWE title against the most fighting champion of all time Bret Hart. The 2 are both technicions masters & have big respect for each others, so at the beggining of the match you have a brilliant exchange of mat wrestling with Buckland being more aggressive which showed how much he is into the opportunity to win the title & he wanted to show everybody he still got it. Bret is with him on each hold & shows he is nothing less than Buckland when it's comes for pure wrestling. The pace of the match picks up but with phenomenal psychology as both men remain thier offense with the body parts they've been working on. The ending is just phenomenal with breathtaking near falls, Buckland is going crazy & starting to show his depression by using every wrestling move & pinfalls attemps possible to win the match but Bret outwrestling Buckland at the end the vetran with a small package to win the match. Textbook wrestling clinic Bret wanted to show his respect for the battle & went to shakes Buckland hand, Buckland is in disbelief as he was so close to win the title & he knows it may be his last opportunity for the title. So Buckland snapps & put Bret in the Chicken Wing. Crowd is on shocked as one of the most brilliant chracter transmission & amazing heel turn have just happened.

Triple H's placement on the list is absurdly high. He especially should not be above the person listed right before him. I have other complaints about that list, but it's embarrassing they put him that high and over the person who's listed right before him (not mentioning it in case people don't want to be spoiled).

Also, is Orton so much higher than DDP just because he's been wrestling for WWE longer? They literally have the exact same finisher, only Orton ripped it off from DDP, who did the move spectacularly more often.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Summerslam 2007 - What a horrible show.

All matches were TV standard (Did'nt mind Orton/Cena however), some crap finishes, and some awful matches.

Luckily after Unforgiven 07, WWE kind of got back on track, but still this was awful for the second biggest PPV of the year.

Where on earth can you buy this? iOffer I doubt do it anymore, ever since this whole piracy thing came in, quite a lot of the stuff they had has gone down. I'd love the set with the cases/artwork.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

No Way Out 2012

1. Sheamus vs Dolph Ziggler (WHC) - ***1/2
2. Santino vs Richardo - DUD
3. Christian vs Cody Rhodes - ***1/2
4. PTP vs Primo/Epico vs USOS vs Gabriel/Kidd - ***
5. Layla vs Beth Phoenix - *1/4
6. Sin Cara vs Hunico - **
7. CM Punk vs Kane vs Daniel Bryan (WWE title) - ***3/4
8. Ryback vs Jobbers - DUD
9. John Cena vs Big Show (Steel Cage) - ***

Overall, it is a pretty damn good ppv. Sure, it has a ton of filler, but it also has a lot of good quality matches. Sheamus and Ziggler gave us a great fast paced match. Some people even have this at a higher rating then me.

Christian and Rhodes gave us another awesome match with a great ending sequence. The tag team match was another fun spotfest.

The WWE title match was the MOTN and I might go with a higher rating on another watch. One of the better triple threat matches we have seen in a while.

Cena/Show was also a pretty good match. A lot of people judge this match before it even happened and never even gave it a chance, but these two guys actually surprised me here.
