Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just rewatched WrestleMania 26 on my phone on YouTube while in bed. Fuck I'm crazy

Anyways, looking back on it, it was actually really good bar the Bret/Vince shit. Underrated IMO.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Punk/Rey is fucking fantastic for a six minute match.

And Taker/HBK is one of my favorite matches of all time. Don't like Batista/Cena as much as I did my first watch but it's still solid.

The match with Rey Mysterio was a bit too short IMO. About 4 minutes it was. And yeah, I just passed the episode where he wins #1 Contender for his match with Angle in the triple threat with Brock & Big Show, that's another great match where he pinned Lesnar. (although most believe that he never did that)
He never did have a long match with Rey, but I always found them to be super fucking fun matches regardless. All this talk of 03 makes me want to do a SD 03 project, but I need to finish 06 first (Raw and ECW, done SD already ). Just need ONE episode of Raw 06 to continue since my copy absolutely sucks and is totally unwatchable, but there only seems to be the same version floating around online. Looks like I'll have to buy a DVD copy of it.

Love WM 26. Main complaint is the time for matches, but honestly I think most of them do really well for the time given. Punk/Rey was super short, but they got just about everything a good match needs in that small amount of time.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Anyone actually like any of Takers' pre-attitude matches?!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I do . Matches with Yoko, while not classics or anything, are really fun. WM match against Diesel is great at the MOTN imo. Stuff with Flair was good (House shows obviously). Hogan matches were alright too. Liked the WM match with Jake Roberts, good for the time it got. His matches with Foley in 96 are awesome, and that's technically all pre-attitude era stuff . Ooo, match with Bret at RR 96 (some people hate it because its slow, which is understandable), as is the one from... 92 or something. Probably forgetting some shit .

Edit: His match with Luger in WCW is really good too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just glad someone else does too, still love his fued and match vs Roberts, and that match against Diesel, and yeah as 96 is pre attitude, matches against Foley of course count, such as buried alive.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Love their KOTR 96 match. Up there with their best stuff like ROTT from 97. Also they had a good casket match at a house show in 96 that I have on disc.

Anyone here seen the film The Wrestler? Not the Mickey Rourke one, but the Verne Gagne one from 1974. Imported it from Australia last week.

The gimmick and level of talent he usually had to worked with kept him from having great matches. You won't find too many good matches with Kamala, Fake Undetaker, Giant Gonzolas, Papa Shango, King Bundy, etc.

However

Taker/Bret MSG 92
Taker/Roberts WM8
Taker/Diesel WM12
Taker/Owen Raw 96
Taker/Mankind KOTR 96
Taker/Goldust International Incident 96
Taker/Mankind Buried Alive 96
Taker/Mankind Revenge of the Taker 97
Taker/Austin Cold Day in Hell 97
Taker/Vader Canadian Stampede 97
Taker/Bret SummerSlam 97
Taker/Michaels Ground Zero 97
Taker/Bret One Night Only 97
Taker/Michaels Badd Blood 97

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Never seen the match with Owen, I'll have too look that up, how about sone of Takers' tag matches, like with Kane, sure he had tags with Bret Hart and one with Yokozuna too..

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I like the six man tag team flag match from Raw July 97. Taker/Austin/Dude Love vs. Bret/Owen/Davey. Taker & Mankind vs. Shawn & Hunter from that year is good too.
