Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I can see where both camps are coming from on the ending to Cena/Lesnar. IMO in the context of the match, the finish was fucking perfect, but in the context of previous booking (Cena losing to Rock etc) and longer term booking (Cena leaving, coming back to face Lesnar again etc) it was the wrong finish.

Btw, might as well go for a top 5 list like everyone else...

Bryan/Punk (OTL) ****1/2
Bryan/Sheamus (ER) ****1/4
Punk/Jericho (ER) ****1/4
Punk/Jericho (WM) ****
Punk/Henry (RAW 16/4) ****

That's without Lesnar/Cena which I just can't really rate until I see it for a third time, but it was fucking amazing.

Still watching 2006 SmackDowns here and there, and man the Angle/Taker re-match was SO good. Feels like a top 5 Angle match.

You're really making me excited about 2006 with this. I've watched a handful of episodes from both Raw & SD here and there and Raw, specially, has been nothing special which has sort of made me buy into the idea that 2006 was a bad year.

Unfortunately, though, I'll have to download the whole pack for 2006 (as not many episodes are directly streamable from youtube and other places) rather than just youtube it like I have been doing with 2003 (and will do with 2004).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just bought SummerSlam 02 since its going cheap on SV and is going to be discontinued once its sold out! Same for some 03 PPV's, and well as a couple from 06 and 07. Seems odd that they would just stop making them.

Angle/Mysterio =

The pace to that match is insane.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

One of the few Angle matches with THAT kind of pace that isn't just good, but awesome. No surprise though, he is working with someone far more deserving of being called one of the GOAT than himself.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Agreed. Mysterio at that time was untouchable.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

His knee injuries/age have slowed him down a bit, but he's still very consistent, especially for the type of worker he is. He almost never botches, either. Everything is smooth and fluid. I just meant that he was on an entirely different level back then. He's still one of the best.
