Undertaker/Hardy ladder match is great. Amazing to think it was 'Taker's FIRST ever ladder match too! Probably my favourite Jeff match, and likely his second best singles match (HHH from whenever in 08 being his best, not as high on the Punk matches as most).

I think Taker has only been in two ladder matches if I recall. Only ones I can think of are Taker/Hardy and Taker/Edge. Am I missing any?

Pretty sure that's it.

I still cringe when I see the bump he takes at the end of ONS '08.

Still amazes me when I see him taking that bump. As with the rest of the match, watching live I predicted every single spot they did... I just had no idea Undertaker would be the one to take that bump at the end!

yeah, I remember a bunch of parts in that match where it was really obvious what they were setting up for. But those Hawkins and Ryder bumps are pretty nasty too.

I agree with you though, I thought for sure it was gonna be Edge taking that bump. Not Undertaker at the tender age of 43.

Stuck in SummerSlam 2002 last night since it showed up yesterday. Watched Hogan Vs Lesnar which is an extra on the disc. Not the greatest match, but a ton of fun for sure. Crowd are insane for Hogan. Love how they built up Hogan as being almost the ultimate challenge for Lesnar at this point in his career. Heyman on the outside yelling to Brock "He's different! He's Hulk Hogan, he's DIFFERENT!" while Lesnar is playing with Hulk like he did with everyone else at the time, being too inexperienced to truly understand who he's in the ring with. Hogan did his usual schtick; no selling stuff but not anything major that pissed you off, just in the way that is part of his gimmick. He even has Brock reeling and even begging him off, the first time we'd seen this kind of thing from Lesnar. And then Bock got it. He understood who he was in the ring with. It started with the ledgrop, and once Brock kicked out, he evolved. He went after Hulk like a man possessed. No more messing about. F-5. Busted Hogan wide open. And then locked in the bear hug and beat Hogan in perhaps THE most decisive way that Hogan has ever been beaten in. Perfect build up match to SS imo. Heyman was proclaiming Lesnar to be the next big thing. He was young, athletic, powerful. He had EVERYTHING but experience, but week after week we'd see him get better and better, and in this match its like he went from a rookie to a veteran; that's how much he learnt. He wasn't in the ring with your average guy. No more Hardy Boys (just popular team at the time). No Rikishi. No Booker T. No RVD. He was in the ring with one of THE stars. One of THE legends. He went into the match inexperienced. He made mistakes. Then he LEARNT. He adapted. He evolved. He grew. And he took OUT Hulk Hogan, and was finally ready for The Rock and the WWE Title at SummerSlam. Great stuff here, telling a pretty magnificent story imo. And Hogan taking a fucking POWERBOMB (albeit out of the corner, but all that did was allow Hogan to not have to try and flip himself up onto Brock's shoulders lol)? Awesome lol.

Don't think I've ever seen that match other than clips of the bearhug. Might give it a look today.

Dammit, I really have to watch this Hardy/Taker ladder match as soon as possible. Sounds like a real classic.

And speaking of guessing spots before they happened, table spot at HHH/HBK 3SOH match, anybody? Flair was randomly outside the cage, setting up the tables, then when the ladder part happened, it was obvious that someone was going through those tables. Funny how they happen in about every single TLC match.

That problem ruins a lot of TLC/Ladder match. Most notably the Edge/Undertaker TLC from '08. I really find it hard to sit through that match because of how obviously they are setting up for spots. It really sucks you out of the fantasy, you know?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After finally giving in to Segunda, I have downloaded and watched the much loved McIntyre/Masters Superstars match from last year and I am glad I did so. It was considered one of the best TV matches of last year and I can see why. You get a vintage McIntyre performance with him just being a great heel and tearing away at Masters' leg in creative and vicious ways. Masters is just as good, if not better than McIntyre here. He sells the damage beautifully as seen in that awesome Oklahoma slam attempt. There is a few awkward set-ups and sequences but it's really no deal breaker. Those not sold on McIntyre or Masters yet, should really check this out. ***3/4
