Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Part of me actually wants to go back to the 2002/2003 HHH as well, but the other part of me is the sensible one. I was actually going to look at his 2004-2008 in parts again soon, though. Plus there's stuff I never got around to like NOC v Cena or Backlash v Batista. And I only remember TV matches like the late 07 one with Flair when it actually happened.

Trip/Steiner could have been fine if it was a short match where Steiner ran through Hunter only for Trip to cheat a victory at the end. Instead we got 20 minutes of Steiner blowing his moves and HHH doing the most poor man's Ric Flair possible.

you know what.............I'm watching that today. The Sensible Me can go fuck himself.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really want to watch that Rumble '03 match between Trips and Steiner. Haven't watched it since then, but I can't seem to get myself to rewatch matches that I've already watched before. Even as a whole, I've lost the diehard "wrestling fan" in me. It's more of a WrestleMania fan now.

It doesn't need a lot of researching but Hunter's better matches during 2002/2003 period are SummerSlam 2002, WrestleMania XIX, Raw against Flair (May 2003), Bad Blood 2003, and Raw against Michaels (December 2003). I really like the HIAC against Nash.

My ratings for most of Hunter's matches in the 2002/2003 period. Mainly PPV matches, with TV matches here and there--cut/paste job.


- Triple H vs. Kurt Angle - Raw Episode 02/18/2002; Number 1 Contender's Match ~ *** 1/2

- Triple H vs. Chris Jericho - WrestleMania X-8, 03/17/2002; Undisputed WWF Championship ~ * 3/4

- Kurt Angle vs. Triple H - Raw Episode 04/03/2002; Steel Cage Match ~ ** 1/2

- Hollywood Hulk Hogan vs. Triple H - Backlash 2002; Undisputed WWE Championship ~ **

- Triple H vs. The Undertaker - InsurreXtion, 05/04/2002 ~ **

- Triple H vs. Chris Jericho - Judgment Day, 05/19/2002; Hell in a Cell ~ ***

- The Rock vs. Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar - Global Warning Tour, 08/10/2002; WWE Undisputed Championship ~ *** 1/4

- Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H - SummerSlam, 08/25/2002; Unsanctioned Match ~ **** 3/4

- Triple H vs. Kane - No Mercy, 10/20/2002; Winner Take All ~ ** 1/2

- Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H vs. Chris Jericho vs. Kane vs. Booker T vs. Rob Van Dam - Survivor Series, 11/17/2002; World Heavyweight Championship; Elimination Chamber ~ *** 1/2

- Triple H vs. Booker T - WrestleMania XIX, 03/30/2003; World Heavyweight Championship ~ *** 3/4

- Triple H vs. Ric Flair - Raw Episode, 05/19/2003; World Heavyweight Championship ~ *** 3/4 (Love this match; probably my favorite of the year)

- Triple H vs. Kevin Nash - Bad Blood, 06/15/2003; World Heavyweight Championship; Hell in a Cell /w Special Guest Referee Mick Foley ~ *** 1/2

- Goldberg vs. Triple H - Unforgiven, 09/23/2003; World Heavyweight Championship ~ **

- Goldberg vs. Triple H - Survivor Series, 11/16/2003; World Heavyweight Championship ~ *

- Triple H vs. Goldberg vs. Kane - Armageddon, 12/14/2003; World Heavyweight Championship ~ ** 3/4

- Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels - Raw Episode, 12/29/2003; World Heavyweight Championship ~ **** 1/2

I did these in 2009 (I believe). Missed out on plenty of matches, and that's why they aren't here.

I'm not big on rewatching matches any more tbh, I can do the old school stuff with ease but the newer modern day suff for the most part, I just can't be bothered to watch again.

Definitely give Backlash Vs Batista a watch. SHOULD have been a great match had Batista not fucked it up towards the end. Before that, they teased the Pedigree being THE finish that not even Batista could survive, and Trips did some pretty spectacular back work too.

Actually this is a very good match and better than their match at King of The Ring - ***1/2 for me.

I just couldn't get into it. It's not awful, but it's really unspectacular. The ropes breaking didn't help much either.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I actually watch H/Steiner, and I'm really, really glad I did. First parts were boring as shit, but once they....um, 'picked it up' (which isn't the right term since it was slow and plodding), it just got legitimately funny. I'm literally telling the honest-to-God 100% truth when I say I laughed at some of the moments in this match. First time was the tombstone reversal which ended in this fucked up stunner/neckbreaker/diamond cutter move which Steiner sold by pretty much falling backwards. Trip nearly fell on top of him and I nearly fell off of my bed in laughter. Just when I'm about to get over that Steiner pretty much trips over while giving Trip the worst butterfly powerbomb thingy of all time. Match was a total mess; I thought they might go a good route when Ric brings Trip to leave the match, but then Steiner comes after them and Ric distracts the ref for Trip to hit Steiner with the belt. Except he didn't and Steiner hits him instead. They should have LET Trip hit Steiner and they should have done it in the first few minutes of a 12 minute match (it went like 20...). Steiner's selling was almost non-existant when Flair got cheapshots in. He was wrestling like a morbidly obese man that belongs on one of those motorised scooters. The both of them looked like shitty trainee wrestlers trying to emulate what they were seeing on TV, and it was just an awful match. But it was fucking hilarious. ****3/4. I'm watching the No Way Out re-match tomorrow.

I'm sort of this way recently. I've re-watched pretty little in recent weeks despite absolutely tearing through wrestling. Some days I've watch hour upon hour upon HOUR but none of it is stuff I've seen before. If I get to something I've seen in the past two years on a DVD I skip it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Chances are if a match is over 20 minutes, I will not be rewatching it. It's no coincidence that the vast majority of my favourite matches are around that time, any longer and I just cannot be arsed usually.

I always thought that the matches and the program with Steiner was very "entertaining" but never got why he was challenging for the title though. Anyway I love that match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If you gonna rate a match just for the hilarity, might as well rate it full ***** unless ofcourse you're saving that up for a much more "hilarious" match. Sting vs Jeff hardy? :jeff
