Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hey there, guys. I'm contemplating starting up a DVD collection and I really seem to like.. idk, how would you describe "Edge: A Decade of Decadance" genre wise? Documentary or what? I like those kind of DVD's, that have matches as bonus'. So yeah, suggestions please.

HHH 05:

Elimination Chamber - ****1/2
vs Orton - RR - ** (boring as fuck tbh. could have been so much more with the whole concussion deal, but no, HHH stuck to mainly punches and headlocks and boring shit)
vs Batista - WM - **3/4
vs Batista - Backlash - ***1/4 (if Batista didn't stop selling his back that had been worked on the entire match during the finishing stretch, this would have been **** easily)
vs Batista - Vengeance - ****3/4
vs Flair - TT - ****1/2
vs Flair - Survivor Series - *** (find this to be overrated to hell. has NOTHING on their cage match imo, and hell, they had a way better match on TV in Feb of 06)

Decade of Decadence isn't really a documentary as much as a career retrospective. Every DVD set that's released as an individual tends to be 3 or 4 discs, with the first disc including a full, proper 90 minute doc with all of the relevant people talking about their life and career, with the other discs having matches. If you want Edge's documentary you'd need to buy the second set "You Think You Know Me", otherwise literally all of them have matches included. Most big names have that kind of DVD set out, so it's literally a question of picking a guy and buying his.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Right, I'm going for it. As I only got into wrestling in late 2010, i'm gonna watch everything (RAW/Smackdown/PPV's) from Summerslam '97 through to TLC 2010, rating all PPV matches as I go.

Just finished watching Badd Blood, and mu god, did that PPV suck up till the main event. I mean, the WWF champion in a 25-min non-title flag match that flat-out sucked, Owen Hart in a average match with Faarooq... The potentiual was there, but the execution was awful. The HIAC sooo made up for it though! Taker's awesome monster performance, HBK overselling everything, and the ending was incredible (as a personal Kane mark of course). 3 months into my project, and the first ***** match!

Ratings for SS, Ground Zero and Badd Blood up later.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Haha, yeah, the Bad Blood PPV does suck donkey balls outside of the HIAC match. But any PPV with the GOAT match on it is still a good PPV in my eyes .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

On the Triple H topic, as good as 2005 was I think it is only his third best year in his career.

2000 was his best with 2002 being second.

2002 saw his infamous return, first undisputed title run, feud with Hogan, feud with Michaels (summerslam match was epic) and the whole Raw main event scene at the time was great with the first ever Elimination Chamber. I would say 2002 for HHH was up there with 2005 if not a bit higher.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd say its easily his second best year. His 02 sucked balls. Kayfabe wise he did some good stuff, but his character was dull as fuck and his matches were 99% terrible .
