Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
You know what ? ... You got me. Rewatched HHH-Jericho from Mania again just to ensure myself of the rating. Still think it's grossly underrated, but I'm moving it back to my original stance of it being a *** 3/4 encounter. Think I overreacted because of the big MOMENT, but still.... It has everything you can ask for in a match besides atmosphere.
Just finished the entire 03 HHH PPV series. 11 matches and THREE are ***+. That's awesomely horrible. I'm getting to the shit that I love now however, 04-06. Just watched the LMS between HBK and HHH, fantastic stuff. The stars really MIS-aligned for Hunter in 03, but thankfully due to Michaels/Benoit he was able to get his swagger back. SO many good matches from him in that time period, his match against Eugene was awesome. Not exactly the GREATEST in the STARS department (*** 1/2 my last watch) , but one of Hunter's greatest heel performances ever.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
