Weren't they originally going to do Edge Vs HHH at WM 25 and Orton Vs Cena? I seem to remember them kinda building up to that and then BAM, they switched it around to HHH/Orton and Cena/Edge/Big Show.
I think that's where they were headed but I wanted HHH/Jeff Hardy and Orton/Cena. Hardy could have had his big pay-off after his extensive chase in another great match with Hunter. While they could have expended on the Orton holding the show hostage with a lawsuit and Cena being the defender of the company. However, I did like the build they did with HHH/Orton but the triple threat just sucked.
WM25 would have been a better card with this
Orton/Cena World Title (main event)
HHH/Hardy WWE Title
Jericho/Mysterio IC Title (w/Steamboat in corner)
Edge/Big Show (over Vickie's 'love' I guess)
Divas Battle Royal (minus Santina & Kid Rock; plus Trish, Lita, entrances,and Women's Title)
Colons/Miz & Morrison (open the show)
I watched that Benoit DVD a few weeks ago. Heartbreaking stuff when I look at how his name gets treated today. It's a complicated topic so I'm not gonna speak on it but just say that it's a great DVD that took me back to when he was alive and his name wasn't a taboo subject. And there's even Eddie Guerrero talking about how great their friendship is.
Also, I watched the F4W for the IC title at No Way Out 2001 yesterday and it was a solid ***3/4 to me. Fatal Four Ways are usually entertaining and this one is no different.
I watched some of the Benoit DVD earlier. The documentary (which is a pretty great doc) and then the Al Snow match (only put in the first disc lol). Despite only being a 2 disc set its filled with a bunch of really great matches and with the doc its probably one of the better superstar releases. Shame we won't get another, but I can understand why we won't. Might have to pick up a custom set at some point. When I have money. And I find a good one .
Not looking forward to match selection for the NWO set. Don't recall off the top of my head ANY NWO matches worth a damn. Sure, Hogan/Goldberg and Hogan/Luger are important matches for the title changes and shit, but they aren't good matches. And then there's... uhhh... that one match with thingy...
Actually I think I liked War Games 96. That's about it.
