Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, have Orton win the battle royal instead of Angle would of been my preference too. Then just have Angle and Taker in an interpromotional feud.

edit - Any not-talked-about matches you guys think should of been a lot better than they were?

I remember being really excited about Jericho/Christian ladder match at Unforgiven 04, but it never really clicked for me. With these 2, in a ladder match, and with the 20 minutes they got, you would think they would of provided a classic.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I listened to a former creative writer who said that Vince wanted Finlay to take the World Title from Rey soon after he won it but it was nixed by Stephanie. I think it was after JBL got hurt because it was supposed to go to him first lol. Poor Rey. He was never going to get a proper run with that belt no matter what.

Finlay? Vince wanted FINLAY to hold the World Title. In 2006?

FUCK YOU STEPHANIE. FUCK YOU AND YOUR RETARDED OPINION.

Finlay, imo THE wrestler of the year (Danielson has a claim for worldwide too I guess, probs someone in Japan too that I don't know about, but at least as far as wwe goes, NOBODY was better than him in 06) was gonna get a world title reign... and instead King Booker gets it?

That's it. I ain't fapping to Stephanie any more!

I think they wanted a heel to get the title so Batista could challenge for it when he got back.

Would not of liked JBL getting the belt at all, as we probably would of got another poor Batista/JBL series, as. Finlay as Champ would of been interesting, would of got a decent series of matches with Batista unlike the poor matches that King Booker/Batista delivered.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really wanted JBL to win the World title in 2006 from Rey. In 2005 from Batista too actually.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think after JBL's first reign he didnt need the belt anymore, you could get good feuds out of him as he created an awesome character for himself.

Lol. Apparently it was the only time she ever spoke up and disagreed with Vince publicly in the meeting with all the other writers during this guys time there which was up until 07 iirc. I guess she must have felt pretty strongly about it to do that.

Speaking of Christian and ladder matches, I didn't think Christian and Edge had an epic ladder match I would have liked them to have had. Their other matches are good but they never got a great angle together and it's a shame. In a World Title feud I would have loved to have seen heel Edge vs. face Christian.


Much gratitude to

I don't think these two ever had matches that delivered and didn't make you feel like you could have gotten more out of it. The WrestleMania encounter from earlier that year, albeit a regular match, was arguably as good as, if not better, than the ladder match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, Edge and Christian's ladder match was pretty horrible imo, despite the fact on paper it should have been great. They probably could have had a great one now, but ah well. Didn't like any of their 01 matches.
