MITB V
Colons/Miz & Morrison (open the show)
Wow, I never knew you hated Edge so much

Built up, Edge v Christian would have been far, far better for that show. Or any big show, really. Gutted that the Christian feud was meant to be Edge's "victory lap" feud, but never ended up happening for obvious reasons There is that RAW match, but it's just not the same.

From all the DVDs I own, my favorite titles are the following:

x Best of Raw Vol. 1 & 2
x Rise + Fall of ECW
x Ladder Match 1 & 2
x Monday Night Wars
x McMahon
x Chris Benoit: Hard Knocks
x Stone Cold Steve Austin: the Bottom Line on the most-popular superstar...
x Survivor Series 2002
x Royal Rumble 2005

I wanted to buy the Money In the Bank 2011 PPV but I've decided not to. (Cause it's only on DVD format) I'll grab CM Punk's Blu-ray to get the match on higher-definition. Also, WWF Wrestlemania X-Seven looks impossible to get for cheaper than 60$, so I might never buy this one.

BTW, this CM Punk DVD cover looks pretty nice.
You should get the sets of any individual wrestler you like, like how you got SCSA's. 99% of those are good.

Any Wrestlemania. Wrestlemania XXIV is my favourite one I own, highly recommend.

WM25 would have been awesome with Hogan/Cena. And I honestly thought that they're going to do Orton/Vince at WM for the final payoff.

Hogan/Cena(main event)
Orton/Vince
Taker/HBK
Hardy/HHH WWE title
Edge/Show WHC
Jericho/Steamboat
And a serious Rey Mysterio match.

HUGE WM.
Wasn't it actually supposed to be Cena/Batista but Batista got hurt? I don't remember hearing anything about Hogan/Cena at the time and thank fuck it didn't happen. What an utterly horrible sight that would have been.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Batista/Cena wasn't an option from December, then Hogan rumors started.

Hogan/Cena would have been an awesome attraction to see IMO.

I honestly don't remember hearing anything about Hogan/Cena. Ever tbh.

And I have to disagree. Hogan can fuck off. As an attraction, sure, but as an actual match hell no. It wouldn't be like Rock/Cena where Rock can still go. It would have been absolutely horrible.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

As somebody who was there live for Rock/Cena, it was far from horrible. They were actually able to put on a match to go along with the incredible atmosphere. Hogan/Cena would have been fucking abysmal apart from the atmosphere.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Being there live probably helped you enjoy it, but for someone watching on TV it was horrible. Shitty boring match that went on WAY too long and the atmosphere didn't come across that great on TV either. One of the lesser matches on the card imo.

I'm waiting on my Mania 28 blu-ray so I can watch it back. It should arrive tomorrow if I have my dates right. I thought the atmosphere came across well on TV from most peoples reports. But I know how much you dislike Rocky lol. Maybe that is effecting your judgment? Btw, agreed that the match itself isn't all that great but just like Rock/Hogan, it gets mega points for the atmosphere and hype surrounding it, not to mention that the pop for the pinfall is monstrous.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought Rock/Cena was alright but it isn't really something I loved. I have it at ***1/4 or ***1/2 I think.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching it live (not at the stadium, as in at the time of happening) was a blast though. I'm not high on the match either but the finish is still one of my favourite ever.
