Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Love the Benjamin vs Trips matches in 04 , it's a shame that Benjamin never got a REALLY huge push to the moon, all he really needed was a good mouthpiece (NOT his momma). If Trips was willing to put him over so much, the company HAD to see main event potential in him. You could have done so much with him from 04-now , and if you got him a competent manager we could have seen a Shelton Benjamin vs Kurt Angle match at Wrestlemania 22 for the WHC.....Now THAT would have been something, instead of that bullshit push given to Rey that was based on the fact that Eddie was dead.
Speaking of that Wrestlemania 22 match, WHY DIDN'T IT GET MORE TIME ? For how long that match lasted, it was fucking awesome (I have it at *** 1/2 ATM, need to rewatch it soon). Give that some more time and get rid of the Booker T/Boogeyman shit and the Playyboy garbage and WM 22 is one of the all time greats.
"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
