Agreed. The guy gets way too shit around here for all the wrong reasons. He has had some injury troubles over the past couple of years, but people seem to forget that when healthy, he is arguably the best wrestler on the roster.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Angle and Benoit would be my #1 & #2. I would slightly put Angle over Benoit because Angle had better matches with Rey and Edge than Benoit. Most of the best SD6 stuff feature those two facing each other or teaming together. Edge slightly over Rey because of his face in peril performances in the 4-way elimination match, No DQ with Eddie and the 10/3 match with Angle. Then Eddie and Chavo.

If we're talking their entire careers then I have Benoit - Rey - Eddie - Angle - Edge - Chavo.


My favorite Smackdown Six Matches:


Angle vs. Rey - SummerSlam 02 - *** 3/4
Angle vs. Benoit - Unforgiven 02 - **** 1/4 - 1/2 (I seriously need to re-watch this. Great heel v. heel match)
Edge vs. Eddie - Smackdown 09/26/02 - ****
Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit vs. Rey Mysterio – Smackdown 09/26/02 - *** 1/2
Angle vs. Edge - Smackdown 10/3/02 - ****
Benoit vs. Rey - Smackdown 10/03/02 - *** 1/2
Angle/Benoit vs. Eddie/Chavo - Smackdown 10/17/02 - *** 1/2
Angle/Benoit vs. Rey/Edge - No Mercy 02 - ***** (fave tag team match ever)
Rey/Edge vs. Angle/Benoit - Smackdown 11/07/02 - **** 1/2
Angle/Benoit vs. Rey/Edge vs. Eddie/Chavo - Survivor Series 02 - *** 1/2
Angle vs. Edge vs. Benoit vs. Eddie - Smackdown 12/05/02 - ****
Angle vs. Benoit - Royal Rumble 03 - **** 3/4

Other good stuff is Eddie/Edge at SummerSlam & Unforgiven 02, Angle vs. Chris Benoit - SD! 10/24/02, Edge vs. Chris Benoit - SD! 10/31/02, Chris Benoit vs. Kurt Angle - SD 11/14/02, Los Guerreros vs. Kurt Angle & Chris Benoit - SD 11/28/02 and Benoit/Eddie Armageddon 02.

Damn, I never quite realized how good the Smackdown 6 actually was until reading that list of matches...

Triple H PPV Match Ratings

IYH 15 vs Flash Funk- ***
KOTR 97 vs Ahmed Johnson- ** 1/2
KOTR 97 vs Mankind- ****
IYH 16 vs Mankind- ****
SS 97 vs Mankind- ****
ONO vs Dude Love- ****
IYH 19 vs Sgt Slaughter- * 3/4

The Flash Funk match was just FUN. It was the poor mans version of Bret vs Hakushi from IYH 1 , just an absolute popcorn match with some great spots and some great wrestling by Hunter on the side there, bravo to both men for entertaining the crowd.

Ahmed match was short, but very fast paced and never a dull moment. Told a good story , because despite Hunter's physique , he never is able to gain a power advantage over Ahmed, resorting to his bag of technical tricks to win.

The first Hunter-Foley PPV series (not even counting the Raw FCA) is one of the most underrated series's of matches in one year EVER , as they gave us a different kind of match and told a different story EVERY SINGLE TIME. The KOTR match is one of Hunter's finest offensive performances, focusing on the neck of Foley and just beating him down slowly and methodically, which I can understand if alot of people hate it because it's slow... I just love that pace. Hunter's first HUGE PPV win as well , and the first near-classic of the Cerebral assassin. The Canadian Stampede match is a forgotten near classic, with both of these guys just going back and forth beating each other down (throw in the post match segments and you have yourselves a **** 1/4 segment), now that Mankind has experienced Hunter once, he won't make the same mistake as last time.

The Summerslam match told ANOTHER different story ; Hunter is trapped in there with a maniac, with no help from Chyna such as in the previous matches (although yes, she still gets involved in various ways which I feel add to the match). This has the best atmosphere of the series, the hottest crowd, and the biggest spots as both Hunter and Foley take bumps all over the Cage to the delight of the audience. The fact that Foley actually HITS the big elbow and wins the match to even things up also adds to the match. That was the blowoff match to the MANKIND feud, however these two met up one last time on PPV in 97, as Foley brought out Dude Love for a match at ONO. This was the most "FUN" match of the series, as Dude is just downright fucking awesome. Foley goes absolutely insane with his technical abilities here, going hold for hold with Hunter (something I never would expect) in a near classic. Of COURSE Foley puts over HHH in the end, to say that Foley did wonders boosting HHH's credibility, is an understatement. All FOUR of these matches are fantastic and I can't choose between them, as all 4 are different and special in their own way.

The match with Slaughter was...Bad. This match actually could have been decent, it's just that they gave them SEVENTEEN MINUTES to work with. At Slaughter's age, that's a horrible idea. The match was slow, with HHH selling pretty well for some pretty terrible offense from the Sarge. Sarge does however, bump like a champ for his age so that adds to the match, as well as the fact that it's TRIPLE FUCKING H. I actually had fun with the match and I could watch it again because HHH is such a dickish heel in it, but it's just a guilty pleasure of mine. I KNOW I'm overrating it even by giving it one and three quarters, but it's HHH, what do you expect? (Btw, this is the first time HHH used the DX theme on PPV, AND the first time he did a water spit on PPV on his way to the ring. Fucking amazing)





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Foley and Hunter were hell of opponents for each other. Loved how they brawled with each other.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm not a big fan of the Cage match and the one at ONO--between Hunter and Foley--but that match at KOTR '97 is lovely. Splendid stuff and Hunter's first "great" match.

Jim Ross was amazing at selling Steve Austin's heel turn. Dude was going crazy.

I'd agree with Starbuck Austin/Rock rating. Really awesome 5 star match.

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.

Mysterio's performance made me a fan of his again and he's a big part of what made SD in 2009 so awesome.
Edge performance made me a fan of not only his "Ultimate Opportunist" gimmick but past heel champions as well (like HHH & Flair).


It's my favorite EC match which is funny because not only was i not looking forward to the match but i only ordered the ppv because a relative wanted to see it.
