In the matches where they cut to commercial break do they cut the 3 minutes of the match or do you get to see what was going on during the commercials when the show originally aired? This might make or break if I buy this set because I actually think last year was a really good year for wrestling.
I doubt you'd get the full matches. They haven't done that before to my knowledge.

Go for unforgiven and no mercy. Both are top quality PPVs and No Mercy is one of my favourite PPVs of all time.

Austin vs Angle vs RVD
Edge vs Christian in a ladder match
Rock vs Jericho
Kane vs Test (better than it had any right to be!)

Fan since 2001

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching the Batista(always liked him for some reason) DVD now and was thinking, if you ever want to see a true star making feud, look no further than the HHH-Batista feud in 2005. You can't put over another wrestler better than HHH did in 05 for Batista. HHH was dominating the title scene for 2 and a half years at that point, and here comes this MONSTER face who is getting huge pops from the crowd, and he goes over HHH on 3 main events in a row CLEAN ?

HHH also gave Batista one of the best HIAC matches of all time, and one of my favorite matches ever. I have it at **** 3/4, an absolute WAR from start to finish. So now I'm going to throw out a few random questions:

- Has there ever been a better "Put-over" job than what HHH did for Batista?
- Top 10 best/favorite Batista matches anyone ?





"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

There are other examples I can use but just talking HIACs, Taker/Lesnar at least matches that. Lesnar came out of that looking absolutely barbaric and just dominant as he physically decimated The Undertaker.

1) I can't recall a better put over job. Despite the fact HHH was probably the most dominant heel in the last 10 years by far, and that he buried a few potentially big talents in his way, it all built up to when somebody did out-do HHH on every occasion, and that man that did was Batista, which meant a massive put-over for him. None have been as big as that. The closest one I can think of is Taker for Lesnar in 02, but even that's not quite at the level of what HHH did for Batista. HHH basically built Batista from the ground up, while Taker was working with a guy who was already partly constructed. This all being said, the matches between HHH/Batista weren't anything out of the ordinary for Batista at that time, besides the cell match, which is my number 4 top Cell match of all time.

2) Best Batista matches imo:

1) vs. Undertaker WM23 (****1/2)
2) vs. HHH Vengeance 05 (****1/2)
3) vs. Undertaker Cyber Sunday 07 (****1/4)
4) vs. Undertaker SS07 (****1/4)
5) vs. Undertaker Backlash 07 (****)
6) vs. Cena Summerslam 08 (****)
7) vs. Edge NoC 08 (****)
8) vs. Cena WM26 (***3/4)
9) vs. HBK ER08 (***3/4) (I think it was ER... it was the stretcher match I'm talking about)
10) vs. Eddie Guerrero NM05 (***1/2)

All off the top of my head. I'm sure I'm forgetting a match or two.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Triple H and Shawn both made Benoit look like a million bucks. He kicked their asses together, separate, iron man matches, submission matches, handicap matches. Benoit looked like the definition of a heroic champ

and then Orton beat him for no reason

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I remember reading they put the belt on Orton because they wanted someone younger than Lesnar to win the title.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It had decent storyline potential. But Orton's momentum got Triple H'd and Benoit got sent down hard

Its bullshit, the storyline practically wrote itself. Benoit beating Triple H every single time, and then Benoit finally losing to Orton leading to Orton rebelling vs Evolution?

The storyline would have been awesome. A three way war between Benoit/ Triple H/ Orton. Instead, Orton got his ass kicked and Benoit got sent down the card

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

They apparetly really hated babyface Oton early on too (so they're like everyone else ) and Batista was given his push and world title spot at Mania.
