Yes. I mean it is a shame what Smackdown has become, but they're still putting out good matches I believe.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Brody doesn't really have much REALLY worth watching. He's a fun spectacle but very often the motherfucker was a shitty wrestler. Lex Luger on the other hand was legitimately really, really good in his peak and still good in the 90s despite people spouting the "he wasn't good" bullshit. No, screw you; you're not good!

Flair/Windham is pretty much one of the greatest matches that will ever happen.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Survivor Series 1997 (All first-time watches)
The Headbangers and The New Blackjacks vs Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and Godwinns (Elimination Match) *1/2
DOA vs Truth Commission **
British Bulldog, Phil LaFon, Doug Furnas and Jim Neidhart vs Vader, Steve Blackman, Goldust and Marc Mero ***1/4
Kane vs Mankind **1/2
Legion Of Doom, Ken Shamrock and Ahmed Johnson vs Nation Of Domination ***
Owen Hart (c) vs Steve Austin (Intercontinental Championship) **
Bret Hart (c) vs Shawn Michaels (WWF Championship) ****

Thoughts: Decent PPV, with a lot of average and slightly above average stuff. However there's not really any essential stuff outside the main event. Austin/Hart was a glorified squash, as his neck meant he culdnt take any sort of bumps ):. Kane/Mankind was a pretty fun brawl, and Kane looked like a total monster. The rest... Meh.
Then there's the main event. First of all, the bad. 2 flag choke spots and HBK driving the flagpole into Harts throat, and no DQ? Hmm. Also, HBK's overselling detracted from the match as a whole. On the other hand, the pre-match brawl was great, there was some solid technical wrestling, and the finish was historic... Must see match for me.

Overall PPV rating: 6/10

Didn't Brody have a problem with losing to pretty much anyone? I don't exactly remember where I've heard that but I remember him not being able to lose clean without being pissy about it. And as far as Luger goes I wholeheartedly agree. I've seen a ton of good shit from him between '86 and '94. I try and just forget about anything he did after that. I still need to see Flair/Windham from the Crockett Cup.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've heard Brody did have a problem putting anybody over, but I've never really like, looked into it. He was notorious for no-selling his opponents offense, though. Plus he apparently often held up territories for more money and was pretty much never employed for a promotion and just went around. He was in high demand because no matter what the guy was like with all that, he drew teh moneez.

Luger was still pretty good as far as 97, BTW. There's 1996 matches I've watched from him where I thought he was pretty much perfect in his role. Well "perfect" makes him sound great which he wasn't, but he was good and really entertaining. Went to dig up some write-ups form my GLORIOUS blog, but I only have one which really sings Luger's praise:

Spoiler for LUGER!!!!!:

Sting/Lex Luger vs. Marcus Bagwell/Scotty Riggs (Nitro 25/3/96)
--Any interest I could have had in this (which was pretty much zero- American fuckin' Males) was squashed when I saw Bagwell in the ring sing along to his team's song (American fuckin' Males). Luger was pretty great in this, though. he comes out and the way he's high-fiving the fans and shoving his arms in the air comes off as really sarcastic, and he seemed to stop doing that sort of fan-pleasing when Sting turned his back. Bagwell was basically Sting's protégé, and when they got in the ring together Sting got the upper hand at every point and Bagwell clapped and gave him dues, and Sting played the role of respectful mentor. Luger was a prick. He pounded the ever-loving shit of Bagwell and Tony Schiavone wondered whether it was to get under Sting's skin, who was confused and disgusted an the apron. Sting/Luger winning was pretty priceless; Lex almost runs off with both tag belts and Sting's in the ring raising the American (fuckin') Males' arms. What else? Oh yeah, Scotty Riggs.... he was.....pretty shitty, actually. American fuckin' Males.


He works really well against Eddie Guerrero in a singles, and I actually remember more Luger spots in the match than Eddie ones.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Flair/Windham BOTB II 86 - ***** and 2nd GOAT match for me. Their WWW 87 match is also ***** and the 3rd GOAT match . Crockett Cup is a little disappointing compared to the other two, only around **** for it.
