Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Lets face it, unless its WM WWE really just don't care. They always claim that SummerSlam is the WM of the summer, but still put in minimal effort. Its gone from the big 4 to the big 1, and even then they only REALLY put effort into a couple of matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I so fucking wish they would get their act together and make the Rumble mean something again. I used to love the Rumble, I mean, really love it. I almost looked forward to it more than Mania but now the magic is all but ruined. What's the point in getting excited over something that ends up opening the card at Mania lol? It's pointless and the EC PPV has rendered it almost completely useless too. The RTWM doesn't truly begin until the night after EC when it should be starting when the winner of the Rumble is standing in the ring pointing to the Mania sign. Survivor Series has survived as a big 4 because of its legacy because they sure as hell don't treat it as one anymore. Summerslam is hit or miss. I mean this year we're getting Brock/Trips which could be a Mania main event and they at least do somewhat try depending on their mood lol. Agreed that Mania is the only thing that matters to them now though. I think that so long as they can produce a successful Mania it enables them to coast comfortably for the rest of the year.

Yeah, so true. I actually prefer their TT '04 match over the awful 3SOH match, and even the LMS match. Their best is obviously SummerSlam 2002.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The team matches for SS 2003 had great build and together they were the highlights of that show.

Orton pinning a bloody Shawn Micheals after a Batista run in had me raging as a kid , JR like BATISTA BATISTA NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I wouldn't doubt it if they TRIED to kill off Survivor Series in 2010 , I mean... WADE BARRETT main evented it. What the fuck? Come to think of it, in 2010 Wade Barrett main evented the last 3 PPVs of the year..WHY ?!?!? I'm praying that he doesn't come back and win the MITB because he just doesn't do it for me at all.

Survivor Series 2011 had some great hype around it , including Rock's return , Punk's one-on-one rematch for the title , and a rematch of the battle of the bigs. The last few "BIG 4" events (not including RR 2012) have given us a substantial amount of hype. I mean Mania is Mania, SSlam 11 had the Punk-Cena II match that people were hyped to see , Survivor Series had everything I just mentioned, and WM 28 is self explanatory.

In regards to the Shawn Michaels vs Triple H series : Those two are among my favourites of all time , so everytime they step into the ring I thoroughly enjoy it. I'd personally give their DEC RAW match the distinction of being my TV-MOTD. The controversial matches that these two have had are the Armageddon 3SOH , HIAC , and Taboo Tuesday matches. I think the Armageddon match and the Bad Blood match share the same distinction in that if you don't LOVE the two guys who are competing in them, you won't enjoy them very much. Taboo Tuesday match however, was very story driven and excellent IMO. To see Shawn basically get screwed AGAIN was insane.





"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

I also love HBK/Razor August 94, Bret/Kid Sept. 94, HBK & Austin vs. Owen & Davey May 97, Rock/Jericho Nov. 01, Christian/RVD Sept. 03, and HBK/Shelton May 05.

I love the two HBK/Edge street fights from '05 and '07. That HBK/Benjamin match is a classic for me too. Love the Benjamin/Trips stuff too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Triple H vs. Shelton Benjamin from Raw 04 after the draft was brilliant. Always forget these great matches happened.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That's the match that really made me a Benjamin mark. I liked him before that but then he became one of my favorite wrestlers of '04-'06.
