Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Matches that had a big match feel to me (personally) in the PG Era (with stars thrown in as a bonus!) :

The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels WM XXV : *****
The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels WM XXVI : *****
The Undertaker vs Triple H WM XXVII : **** 3/4
John Cena vs CM Punk MITB 2011 : *****
John Cena vs CM Punk Summerslam 2011 : **** 1/2
CM Punk vs Triple H NOC 2011 : ****
The Undertaker vs Triple H HIAC WM XXVIII : **** 3/4
John Cena vs Brock Lesnar ER 2012 : **** 1/2

Borderline Big Match-Feel :

John Cena vs Shawn Michaels vs Triple H Survivor Series 09 : ****
John Cena vs Batista WM XXVI : ****
Team Nexus vs Team WWE Summerslam 2010 : **** 1/4

I just wasn't in to Rock vs Cena. It was just another celebrity match to me , and the build seemed way too forced.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I agree with the feel of that Nexus match. I was so hyped going into it. Wasn't going to buy that PPV at all until that got announced.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

When does the PG era officially start? I usually go by June-July 2008, really starting with Summerslam if anything since there was no blood in the Cell match, and then in the HBK/Jericho Unforgiven match it was the same case. But anyway, big PG matches:

Undertaker vs. Edge SS08 HIAC- ****3/4
Cena/Batista SS08- ****
The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels WM XXV : *****
The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels WM XXVI : ****1/2
The Undertaker vs Triple H WM XXVII : ***1/2
John Cena vs CM Punk MITB 2011 : ****1/2
John Cena vs CM Punk Summerslam 2011 : ****1/4
The Undertaker vs Triple H HIAC WM XXVIII : ****
Rock/Cena WM28- ***1/2
John Cena vs Brock Lesnar ER 2012 : ***3/4

So basically what K1ngofK1ngs put, just with Taker/Edge Cell, Cena/Batista SS08 and Rock/Cena WM28 in and Punk/HHH and Punk/Cena SS out. Both those matches I'd put in the below list, but I just don't feel they're on the level of the other matches in the big-time PG matches.

Borderline Big-feel matches:

HBK/Jericho Unforgiven 08- ***3/4
HBK/Jericho NM08- ****1/4
Taker/HHH SD08 (just off their starpower only... they didn't belong on SD, but it was a big feel match even if squandered)- **1/2
Orton/HHH WM25 (despite the piss poor and disappointing match, it was still up there due to the build up)- **1/4
Edge/Cena Backlash 09- ****1/4
Cena/HBK/HHH SS09 (pretty much the exact opposite of Orton/HHH)- ****
Cena/Batista WM26- ***3/4
Nexus/Team WWE SS10- ***1/2 (need to re-watch)
Punk/Cena SS11- ****1/4
Punk/HHH NOC11- ***
Rock/Cena vs. MizTruth (Just due to it being Rock's first match in 7 years... and I was there) SS11- **1/2


That does it for me.

I'm watching you...

When I re-watched it on DVD I still thought it was a satisfying main event of two big personalities in a grand showdown.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching the Raw '09 Elimination Chamber with my dad and I can't help but want to put it above the Raw '08 one as my favorite. The shocking elimination of Cena, Rey/Edge/Jericho's epic encounters plus the whole story behind Rey being pissed about Kofi being taken out and the fact that Edge went from WWE champ to WHC in one night. We've probably done the list before but my top 3.

1. Raw 2008
2. Raw 2009 (Debating putting it #1)
3. Raw 2005

Those 3 are easily three of my most watched matches.

That... was a typo.

***1/2 it is.

After Taker & Michaels at WM25, Rey's performance in the Elimination Chamber is the best of the year for me. Absolutely phenomenal. Best EC performance ever and Rey's my 2009 WOTY based on that match and his matches with Jericho, Ziggler, Morrison and Punk.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd give him WOTY in '09 as well. Smackdown that year had so many good matches that year featuring Hardy, Rey, Punk, Jericho, Edge, Morrison, Ziggler.

ECW had great stuff from Christian, Ryder, Regal, Swagger, Kidd, Smith, Burchill and some other guys chipping in. Raw really lacked though. Couple good TV matches in Orton/Trips and Cena/Trips, Cena/HBK but not much to brag about. I liked the Legacy/DX and Jerishow/DX stuff though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

In terms of in-ring quality, how would you rank the Smackdown Six ? Here's my take :

1. Chris Benoit
2. Rey Mysterio
3. Eddie Guerrero
4. Kurt Angle
5. Edge


6. Chavo Guerrero

Chris Benoit may be more Top-heavy than Rey... But can we argue that Rey is possibly the most consistent wrestler of all time ? I mean when I first saw the guy be ranking # 9 on WWE's top 50 of all time list, I thought it was a tragedy until I broke down the tape. You can't look at this guy and say that he's not one of if not THE most consistent Wrestler EVER.

Eddie might be the ALL-AROUND best of the bunch, and beats Angle mainly because of some of Angle's bullshit. I don't think Edge even touches the other 4 (just my opinion) , and Chavo doesn't even touch Edge's Gym socks. Going to look more into this in the future.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I would go...

Benoit
Guerrero./Mysterio
Edge
Angle
Chavo

Don't even hate Chavo or anything, he was just clearly #6. I still really enjoyed Angle too but I'm a bigger Edge fan during that time. Couldn't decide between Rey/Eddie.
