Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Opinions of No Way Out '08 ?

For me there was nothing bad but it all felt very average. Some matches seemed to end just as they were getting good (likely due to the stacked card) and whilst the Elimnation Chambers had good spots it was kinda dull at times (especially the SD chamber with Khali and Big Daddy V's involvement). Not bad by any means and a decent but not great way to spend 3 hours. Worth buying if cheap (I got for £5 so decent price).

I loved the Raw Elimination Chamber match. The rest was all solid. Like you said, it's not a bad show, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it.

Raw chamber in '08 is my favorite chamber of all time.

That was okay. It's not their worst match. That honor goes to their match at the '07 Unforgiven.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have it as their best match ever. Worlds above anything else they did together. Breaking Point is the closest but even that had some shitty parts (the finish, for example...). Their NWO match is one of my all time fav matches ever too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Their Breaking Point match is my favorite match between them. Yea, the finish kinda bothers me, but the rest was just so awesome. Orton's performance in this match is unforgettable. I think I might need to give their NWO match another watch as it's been about 4 years since I last watched it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Orton's performance in the NWO is incredible too. Loved the storytelling in the match, which is why I like it so much. All stemming from Orton saying he was going to PIN Cena... then throughout the match he realises he CAN'T pin Cena, so his strategy for winning keeps evolving until the awesome finish.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I absolutely hate their match from Breaking Point. Couldn't get into it all.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Got into one of my late 1999/2000 WCW moods again. Don't ask me why, but I often myself feeling the need to watch late '99/2000 WCW. I think what really draws me in is the star power, which I'm a sucker for, but I always forget that most of these matches are just plain horrible.

Started with Road Wild 1999. Obviously, not a great show.. The only real highlights are:

-Solid six-man opener, featuring The Filthy Animals against Vampiro and ICP. ICP did well for non wrestlers. Guerrero, Mysterio, and Vampiro is always a good combination.

-Harlem Heat against Kanyon & Bam Bam Bigelow. Good tag action, as you would expect.

-The Revolution vs. The West Texas Rednecks. Again. As you would expect, a lot of talent here, so the result is decent.

-Chris Benoit vs. DDP also a solid match.

And of course, the main events, with all the big names, are awful.

-Sting/Sid is just...meh.

-Goldberg/Steiner was solid for the time it got, but it ended out of nowhere.

-Savage/Rodman is actually not bad. With a good buildup, better booking, and not AFTER Rodman's notoriety, this could have been a really huge match. The result is still solid.

-Hogan/Nash is awful. I'm a blind Hogan mark, I admit that. I'll watch just about anything with Hogan. But this is right up there with Hogan/Sid at WM8 for worst Hogan big man matches. NOTHING happens. Staredowns, rest holds, test of strenghts, heel beats down on Hogan, miraculous comeback, legdrop, 1,2,3. It boggles my mind that while the WWF was blowing up with Austin, The Rock, Triple H, Mankind, Undertaker, and DX, that Hogan thought this crap still worked.

Now onto Fall Brawl '99...

Favorite Matches of All Time

1. Triple-Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Benoit - WrestleMania XX

2. Career Threatening Match: Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair - WrestleMania XXIV

3. WWE Championship: John Cena vs. CM Punk - Money in the Bank 2011

4. No Holds Barred Match: The Undertaker vs. Triple H - WrestleMania XXVII

5. WWF Championship: Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior - WrestleMania VI
