So I finished the writeups for the next 3 HHH matches that I've watched, only for the forum to go fucking insane on me and not let me post them, and due to me being an idiot, I didn't save them and now they are lost forever. Since I'm WAAAYYY too lazy to sit here and do writeups on all of these matches , let me give you guys some snowflakes as to where I am right now :
IYH 6 vs Duke Drose- ** 1/2
WM XII vs Ultimate Warrior- DUD
IYH 8 vs Marc Mero- ***
IYH 11 vs Steve Austin- *** 1/4
Survivor Series 1996 Tag (Debut of Rocky Maivia) : ** 1/4
IYH 12 vs Marc Mero- ** 3/4
RR 97 vs Goldust- ** 3/4
IYH 13 vs Rock- *** 1/2
WM 13 vs Goldust- ** 3/4
Some random notes regarding these matches :
- Most of these matches (sans the SCSA and Rock bouts) follow a pretty simple formula, Hunter gets destroyed over and over again and does a pretty good job of making the other man look great whilst getting a victory in the process.
- HHH managed to get some pretty good matches out of Mero, the best one being their first PPV encounter in which Hunter first implements his "cerebral assassin" offense, working one body part to perfection (albeit in a losing effort).
- The Goldust matches were very... Different. They worked a slower pace and managed to get REALLYY intense at times with some of those stiff shots and chops that made me cringe.
- Fuck the Warrior match. It doesn't exist I tell you. How people say this is ironic to HHH's career really pisses me off as Hunter is more than just a physique and a gimmick like Mr. Hellwig.
- The matches with SCSA and Rocky are very entertaining, back and forth battles. The heel-heel moment in the Stone Cold match where both men go and talk trash to the people in the front row made me laugh a little bit. Rocky's athleticism really increased Hunter's bumps in their first PPV encounter.
-How could I forget the IYH match vs Duke Drose in which the Double A spinebuster is used for the first time in a HHH match... Except it's used by Drose (DEAD SERIOUS). Maybe that's where Hunter got the idea :P
- Got a few randoms to get through (vs Flash Funk and vs Ahmed Johnson) until we get to 4 Foley matches in a row. Excited to see how this turns out
