Wouldn't put these anywhere near HHH's top 20 PPV matches. Thought TT match with Flair was FAR better than the LMS. Not a fan of the tag match at all, think the Austin match is kinda trash, and the Benoit match didn't hold up very well at all on last watch .

I disagree with everything except the SVS 02 EC.

Put my ratings next to each of them. They aren't way off from yours or anything. Not sure what the order would be. Out of the 4 star matches, the Flair TT match would be number 1, and ****1/4 the JD00 Ironman match would be number 1 (probably). These aren't all the matches I have at **** and ****1/4 for him though.

For ****1/2 HHH matches, off the top of my head (in no order):

1) vs. Rock BL00
2) SVS 02
3) vs. Austin NWO 01 (believe I had this at ****1/4 before. Decided to bump it up on last watch).
4) vs. HBK Summerslam 02
5) vs. Batista Vengeance 05 HIAC
6) vs. Jericho LMS FL00
7) vs. Benoit vs. HBK WM20

For ****3/4... don't think I have any HHH matches at that rating.

And his one ***** match is with Foley at the RR.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That Austin match is so confusing (No Mercy 1999). It's Austin's typical brawl vs. Hunter's cerebral style and it didn't mesh at all. I'd go *** max on that.

All of those matches are easy ****3/4 - ***** classics.

How do you rate HHH/Taker matches the last two mania?

Yup, No mercy 99 was pretty sloppy work, especially from austin. Not a bad match though. I have it at ***1/2.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just caught this forgotten triple threat match featuring three of the greatest a couple of days ago.



It's a crime Benoit and Undertaker never got a real program together. Would have made an excellent Wrestlemania match in 2003 or 2006. LOL @ SuperTaker lasting a minute in a submission combo of a Crossface and Ankle Lock while Stone Cold tapped out to the Crossface/Walls of Jericho combo in an instant.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Triple H PPV Matches : The List (10-6)

**** 1/2

10. BL 04 vs Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit
9. Wrestlemania XXVIII vs The Undertaker HIAC

Love, love, LOVE these matches. Both are in the running for MOTY for their respective years imo, it's just that I believe that the HIAC is SLIGHTLY better due to the big time atmosphere and superior storytelling compared to the BL match. However, even though I do believe that Punk-Bryan from Over The Limit is the match of the year, I think this HIAC will go down in HISTORY as the best of the year (if that makes any sense).

**** 3/4

8. NYR 05 Elimination Chamber
7. VEN 05 vs Batista
6. WM XXVII vs The Undertaker

Listen, I understand that I might be the only person in the entire universe who prefers the WM XXVII no holds barred match over the WM XXVIII end of an era HIAC match, I know that. However, I have my reasons. I just believe that while some might look at the Wrestlemania XXVII match as a glorified finisher fest with too many rest spots, I believe that that is what the match was supposed to do to get across it's story. Both men know that to take the other out, they need to skip the little things and just drop BOMBS on one another, and it works down to a tee. I can understand why it would bother some people, but obviously I'm enamored with it to have it that high on my list.

The 2005 matches speak for themselves. Both are in a dead heat for my 2005 MOTY. The HIAC match is one of the most intense matches that I've ever seen, while both have some of the most dramatic moments ever on WWE PPV. I literally had no clue where they were going with either of these matches, and that made it more exciting for me. You has the near perfect mix of technical wrestling and intensity in the EC, whilst you had the PERFECT blow off match with the HIAC. I love them both, though the HIAC gets the slight nod from me as the 2005 MOTY.

Thoughts ?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Storytelling, brutality, emotion, and 'epicness' in the End of an Era match all trump the Last Outlaw match. What I will give WM27 over WM28 is the pacing in the beginning of the match and the big near fall moment is better. Both are absolute classics though.

WM27: **** 1/2
WM28: **** 3/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

With both those Undertaker WM matches not in the top 5, no idea other than Cactus RR 00 match what is gonna make your list lol. For me personally those 3 matches are HHH's absolute best with not much coming close to them .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Pretty sure Hunter/Michaels from SummerSlam will be in his Top 5. Probably Austin/Hunter 3SOH too.
