Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Only matches I think are good between them are Raw 03 and one from Raw 06 (not long before HHH turned face and they became DX again I believe).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Raw December 03 in San Antonio and the Taboo Tuesday match are the only ones I enjoy. Taboo Tuesday with HBK being legit hurt adds to the match since they work a basic match around HHH being a methodical dick working the leg and HBK working from the bottom. Feels like a very simple structured match without trying to make the match 'THE EPIC MATCH TO END ALL EPICS'. I just never found myself invested in their feud and how by the end it was just a painful attempt like Cena/Orton to present something the audience ought to be salivating over...when it had just dragged and played out every stipulation and angle they possibly could.

San Antonio Raw 2003 and TT are both relatively basic matches that never feel like they're trying to be bigger than they are, just well wrestled matches and its no coincidence I enjoy them immensly compared to the rest of their feud. Don't really remember this Raw 2006 match all too much.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Raw 06 match isn't anything too special (***1/4), but its a decent length (aka not that long lol) match where they just beat the shit out of each other. Exactly what it needed to be, just a shame they didn't try that when they were actually feuding .

I don't remember Raw 06 in the slightest.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

ALL OF THEIR MATCHES HAVE BEEN GREAT DAMNIT :hhh


....But seriously, I can understand why people don't like the HHH-Shawn series, it's just that I happen to ADORE it and believe that everything they do is AWSUM' because well... Hunter's always been my favourite and Shawn is top 5 for me.

SS 02 : ***** (MOTY 2002, a top 10 WWF/WWE match ever IMO)
ARM 02 : *** 3/4
RAW 03 : **** 1/2 (Top 5 TV match of all time IMO)
RR 04 : *** 3/4
BB 04 : ****
TT 04 : *** 3/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hunter/Shawn are probably my 2 favorites of all time as well but I just can't force myself to like some of it. Don't get me wrong, I'll watch each and everyone one of their matches and enjoy them, but I don't think they're nearly as good as they could/should have been.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Awww... The classic Hunter/Michaels debate. I'll pop up with my ratings.

- SummerSlam 2002 ~ **** 3/4
- Armageddon ~ * 1/2 (Boring as hell)
- Raw 12/29/2003 ~ **** 1/2 (As good a "basic wrestling" match can get; really basic but splendidly done)
- Royal Rumble 2004 ~ ***
- Bad Blood 2004 ~ *** 1/2 (Watched it a few months back. Like it now)
- Taboo Tuesday 2004 ~ ***

Their multi-men matches would be:

- Survivor Series 2002 ~ *** 1/2
- WrestleMania XX ~ *****
- Backlash 2004 ~ **** 1/4
- Survivor Series 2009 ~ ****

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Have any other two guys wrestled each other at least once on every big four PPV? Shawn/HHH have had normal one-on-one and triple threat matches at SS 02, RR 04, WM20 and SVS 09. The closest I can think of is Edge/Cena, they have wrestled at RR 06, SS 06 and WM25 but can't think of them being paired any time at SVS. Also Jericho/Benoit. (RR 01, WM2000, SS 2000)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If multi-man matches/tags count, then HHH-Orton have locked up at every single big 4 event ;

RR 05
WM XXV
SS 03 Elimination Chamber
SSeries 06 Team Rated RKO vs Team DX

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^ The less people talk about the awfulness of that feud, the better it would be for both wrestlers. Those guys feuded--on and off--from 2004 until 2009 and have one great match to show for (actually one amazing and one great).

Even Rock and Hunter didn't feud for that long and they feuded for a long time.
