A really nice touch I noticed from Finlay too was whenever Benoit went for a German Finlay would actually try to fight out of it which is something I don't really see that much. I remember hearing good things about this a while back and it definitely delivered.

****1/2
Mmm, fuck yeah, one of the coolest matches in WWE ever.

Awesome match. Great combination of technical and physical wrestling and Benoits headbutt to Regal looks brutal. Pace never seems to let up that much and high pitched Josh Matthews practically marking out on commentary for the whole match makes it even greater for me.

****1/4

Benoit fighting to lock Regal in the full nelson and eventually applying it to hit a Dragon Suplex is one of my favorite moments in wrestling ever.

Their No Mercy 06 match had the chop to the head which was also an awesome manly moment.

^ The chop to the head was indeed awesome.

Tag Team Turmoil - Judgment Day 2001: ***1/2 - ***3/4
This match was a lot of fun. I really liked the story here with X-Factor dominating a good portion of the match with the help of Albert, the newly-formed team of Jericho and Benoit overcoming that, and them going against Edge and Christian at the end. Also, I forgot how great JR and Heyman were together on commentary. They made this 30+ minute marathon of a match more enjoyable. But yeah, this is probably the best tag team turmoil they've done.

Survivor Series 2003

Team Angle/Team Lesnar - ***1/2 (Strange as fuck the way it was booked but it's a really entertaining match)
Lita/Molly - Meh
Kane/Shane - ***1/2
Bashams/Los Guerreros - **
Team Bischoff/Team Austin - ****1/4
Vince/Taker - DUD
Goldberg/Trips - *1/4

Outside of the 2 elimination matches and Kane/Shane I didn't care for this much but it winds up being a fun show. Lame main event though. And the Taker/Vince match is DREADFUL.

THIS is the match that set the new standard for ladder matches today.
Oh yes, absolutely. But in terms of singles ladder matches, Benoit and Jericho took the concept created by these men here and applied it, IMHO perfectly, to a one on one matchup. You correctly identified this match as being the one to spawn everything we enjoy about ladder matches post 2000 (multi-man, TLC et cetera) but I was drawing the link to the Wrestlemania X ladder match being considered the 'standard' and perhaps suggesting that people wanting to do a more modern take on it would look to the Benoit/Jericho match instead.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've said this a million times, but I still think Benoit/Finlay's a top ten match in WWE history. Agreed on Regal/Bryan not being what it could have been, I was kinda disappointed by it as well.

Shame the case isn't the normal cardboard fold out one though...

I finally tracked down a copy (albeit second hand) of this, i really like the show oerall tbh, Kane-Mcmahaon was excellent for what it is i thought, and the two main SS events were great...
