Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really enjoyed the Mania match, the ER rules match was a lot of fun too. Kane is great because he knows what he is good at and knows what he can't do so always plays to his strengths.

I'd place Undertaker/HHH from Mania as my MOTY so far, with Bryan/Punk from OTL as a close second. A really good number of great matches so far this year.

Thinking about rewatching the Shawn Michaels/Chris Jericho feud from 2008 later today because I remember it being amazing

Liked all three of their matches. (WM, SD after WM and ER) Orton seems to have good chemistry with nearly anyone. Not often he has a bad match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Jericho/HBK was one of the better feuds in recent memory. The promos were just as amazing as the matches, which is pretty impressive. The unsanctioned match and the ladder match are the 2 I remember most, but I seem to recall them having a match earlier in the year that got interrupted by the Stretcher Match at ER. I think that first match was a wrestling clinic, and the other two were more brutal/personal. Was there a 4th?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WWE could have done a better job fleshing out Kane's intentions for attacking Orton. Kane saw the HANDSHAKE as a sign of humanity when he was suppose to be the monster and it was wrong to just accept defeat. Kane wanted to erase that moment with the destruction of the man he showed a sign of weakness to. Kane thought Undertaker's handshake to Michaels at WM26 was a sign of weakness and he thought he lost his edge because of that moment.

JD match which was more pure wrestling. GAB match which was a bloody (as in blood, not "bloody" as an English word meaning... I don't actually bloody know) storyline advancer. Unsanctioned match from wherever, and No Mercy ladder match.

Ah yes, the GAB match is the one I'm forgetting. That was the attack on HBK's eye, correct? That was fairly necessary for storyline advancement. God that feud was awesome.

Marked when Jericho came out later that night, interrupted a match, and told the audience he ended HBK's career.

Man, that feud was fucking awesome.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Michaels and Jericho also had a Last Man Standing match on Raw some time after No Mercy but it wasn't as good as their other matches. Still a decent TV match but I consider No Mercy Ladder Match to be the true culmination of the feud.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

While I'd easily call it the Feud of the year (what the fuck else was going on in 08 lol?), I do think its overrated. I was never THAT into it, and actually got bored with it too. Started well, then I got bored, then SS happened and Jericho DECKED Shawn's wife, then I got into it again, then it got dull towards the end. Didn't like their Unsanctioned match, thought the ladder was good but not great, don't really remember the GAB match. Loved the JD match.
