I mark for 98-end WCW too, mainly because I LOVED WCW as a kid when I first started watching wrestling back in 98 when I was 9 yrs old. My dad used to work really late, and would get home around 4 or 5am, and he would watch the re-run of Nitro that came on Tuesday morning with me and my brother before we would go to school. Just good memories that take me back. That is why I will buy anything WCW related that gets put out, Best of Nitro, Rise and Fall, ANYTHING idc.

With that said, I notice some of you on here have made top 100 lists of WCW matches, I don't get into any of that stuff in depth like that with ranking as I think it's impossible to have be all end all list as ratings with some matches will fluctuate on repeat watch.

Anyway, without me having to look through all the lists, did any of you guys rank the Benoit/DDP match from SuperBrawl 8? One of my favorite WCW matches with ease, but I am a DDP mark. Still a ****+ match imo, great back and forth, both guys looked great, and it had great pacing with the right amount of time. If anyone hasn't seen this, I highly recommend you do.

I wish DDP didn't get stuck Kanyon and Bigelow, and involved with the whole Arquette BS. He was really over in 97-98 and had some solid matchups. I would've loved to seen him in longer feuds with other talent than some of the guys he did. He still had some great matches, the Havoc match with Goldberg I have at ****, the SuperBrawl 8 match with Benoit mentioned above at ****, had a good feud with Savage in 97, had a great 3 way dance with Benoit/Raven at Uncensored that I'd give *** 1/2 - ****, followed with a good cage match against Raven at another PPV (can't recall atm), but it's ***+, and a Heavyweight Championship against Sting on Nitro in 99 I believe it was that I'd go *** 3/4 - ****.

Very capable worker for his age, had a good gimmick and was charasmatic enough to get over and stay over, and worked well heel or face. Having the company ran by a bunch of idiots hurt him in the long run (as it did with mostly everyone not named Nash), but I sure would've loved to see him used better towards his end in WCW, and his whole run in WWF/E. I believe he could've had more ****+ matches had he worked with other capable workers. One of my favorite wrestlers ever.

If this is a joke I don't get it.

You will however be happy to know I got Decade of Decadence on DVD tonight on ebay. Yay!

I also picked up Allied Powers and the first Ladder Match DVD. With all of these DVDs I think I have all 3 TLC matches between E&C/Dudleys/Hardys?

Watching the end of "SD" tonight made me try to remember match with Orton & (I think it was Cena) when one handcuffs the other to the turnbuckle... Seems to me this was a part of a feud where the other got revenge in the following match.

Also, watching start of show made me curious which people prefer overall: Cage or HIAC? Personally, think I'd choose latter.

I don't remember Orton/Cena from NWO '08 much. But both the Chambers were pretty solid matches. I don't think they are exceptional, but very good at around the middle three range.

WWE - Royal Rumble 2009

Rumble Match
***1/2

Really enjoyed the last 4 and like that they actually went for a story based final 4 rather then just 4 random guys.

WWE - Royal Rumble 2010

Rumble Match
***1/4

Punk at the start was good. Went downhill after that.

WWE - Royal Rumble 2011

Rumble Match
***1/2

It wasn't, haha. I tend to like Edge's matches obviously, and I can't go into a thousand word review of how they used 'psychology' or any of that technical stuff, but that match just did not do anything for me. *shrugs*

yey Decade of Decadence. You know, it's a shame Edge's promos haven't been put together on any of his DVD sets. DoD has "The Totally Awesome Best of Edge and Christian" (which is amazing, by the way) but that's obviously exclusive to his tag team days. He's had some really great moments promo and backstage segment wise since then, and it's a shame that they're gonna be left to the dust. Or to whatever "best of" DVD they come out with next.

I love the Orton/Cena I Quit from Breaking Point. Finish aside lol, it's a wonderful match up until that point which I'm willing to overlook. Orton was a beast in that thing. One of my favorite performances from him.

RR 02 match is one of my favs. Around ****1/2 for it.

WM XX ratings? Ok

Cena/Big Show - **
World Tag Title 4-way - **
Christian/Jericho - ****1/2 (I'm one of the biggest fans of this match though)
Evolution vs Rock & Sock - **1/2
CW Open - **1/4
Goldberg/Lesnar -
WWE Tag Title 4-Way - **1/4 (or maybe the other one was **1/4 and this was **. I forget)
Victoria/Molly - I don't even remember this.
Guerrero/Angle - ***
Kane/Taker - **3/4
HHH/HBK/Benoit - ****3/4

Pretty shitty show outside of 2 matches, and then Undertaker's match just for his entrance, return as the Dead Man, and the "Ooooohhhhh YEEEESSSSS!" that was a massive surprise at the time .
