WM XXV : ***
BL 09 Tag : ** 3/4
Bash 09 : *** 1/4
NOC 09 TT : *** 1/2

* Singles matches in bold

8 singles matches on PPV, with only ONE of them being a near classic/classic. I LIKE the Orton-HHH matches alright, but they just aren't that special whatsoever. The main word I could use to describe their chemistry would be disappointing. I mean, I generally like their matches together, but they shouldn't have been consistent main events for 5 years in a row.

Default Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I'm not the only one who thinks the Team DX vs Team Rated RKO match was horrible? Great! And after seeing Team Austin vs Team Bischoff, I hate it even more.

Survivor Series 2003:

Team Lesnar vs Team Angle - ***3/4
A great line-up with plenty of good talent but it's way too short. I do like the ending, though, with Benoit and Cena being my favorite guys and the sole survivors. They also make their friendship official and Cena turns into 100% babyface after this. With more time, this could have been a lot better, though. And Benoit/Cena should have been the new Two Man Power Trip with them winning the WWE Championship and US Championship at Wrestlemania XX, lol.

Molly Holly vs Lita - **1/2
Just some decent female wrestling, not much more otherwise.

Kane vs Shane McMahon (Ambulance Match) - ***1/2
Pretty good no holds barred stuff there with some cool spots such as the elbow drop on the table, the ambulance in the backstage area and Coast II Coast from the top of the ambulance.

Basham Brothers vs Chavo & Eddie Guerrero - ***1/4
Typical good tag team action that is very standard and also happens every week on Smackdown in 2003. Bashams do the switch thing years before "twin magic" and Bella Twins were around. And I find the kayfabe relationship between the Bashams and Shaniqua rather bizarre. From their talking segments to the whipping during the entrance... weird stuff.

Team Bischoff vs Team Austin - ****
One of the best elimination Survivor Series matches I've seen at this point. Big props to Shawn Michaels for putting on one of the greatest babyface performances I've ever come across. That's exactly how a face is built up, something WWE have no clue about nowadays. Orton starts his little streak of being the sole survivor in this match which continued until that awful 2006 match.

Vince McMahon vs Undertaker - ***1/2
I already knew the outcome since the big spoiler with Undertaker Buried Alive matches is that he loses in every single one of them. And having watched WM20, I already knew Kane would cost him the match as Taker spends the entire match squashing Vince around with a horrible blade-job by the boss from the very first punch in the match! This is the very last of Big Evil/American Bad-Ass Undertaker which leads to WM20 when he returned as the Deadman.

Goldberg vs HHH - **1/4
Rather boring and sloppy. HHH is at his worst form in terms of performances here and Goldberg is a very limited wrestler. At first, Goldberg starts on the offense then suddenly remembers the ankle injury and starts selling it for the rest of match with HHH working on it the whole match. Then Evolution interfere after a ref bump and Goldberg takes them all out by himself but Orton and Batista were too stupid to not exit the ring once the ref gets back which kind of ruins the finish. But as always, there's Ric Flair being his entertaining, hilarious self at ringside. Is there any time inside a ring where he doesn't receive a back body drop? It seems like he does every single time, lol.

Overall: ***1/2 out of ***** (Great traditional elimination matches, a couple of nice gimmick matches, two decent TV worthy matches and an underwhelming main event. A good PPV, I say.)

Think I have finally decided on my Extreme Rules 2012 ratings now:

Cena/Lesnar ☆☆☆☆3/4

Bryan/Sheamus ☆☆☆☆1/2

Punk/Jericho ☆☆☆☆

WWE show of the year by miles imo.

Random PPV viewing

Backlash 2008 :

MVP vs. Matt Hardy - ***
Kane vs. Chavo Guerrero - **
Big Show vs. Great Khali - * 1/2
Shawn Michaels vs Batista - *** 3/4
12 Diva Tag - * 3/4
Undertaker vs. Edge - *** 1/2
Randy Orton vs. Triple H vs. John Cena vs. JBL - *** 1/4

Overall - 6/10

Pretty entertaining PPV even without a spectacular match. HBK/Tista, Edge/Taker and Four way were all solid though. Surprised by how much I liked Hardy/MVP. Was a really fun match.

Backlash '08 is a pretty decent show to sit down through. Nothing really incredible but not much unwatchable stuff.

Honestly I felt that Backlash '06, '07, '08 and '09 all had great cards with very little poor stuff.

Yeah, I know it's been talked about in this thread before, but Backlash has always been a pretty consistent ppv. Watched WM 24 last week and had never seen Backlash, so just decided to give it a watch. About to watch JD 08 right now.

I have this simple, but fun idea that probably nobody will go along with but it's worth a shot so here we go ....

I'll name a random wrestler , it could be anybody from Shawn Michaels to Alex Riley to Viscera , and the next person to post would post what they thought was that individual's best match , and how they would rate it. The person who responds to the post then throws out a random name for somebody else to comment on. I know it's confusing but let me TRY (and fail ) to get this thing kicked off ........

"Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

Seriously though Yeah, I'd like to know your opinion on what Stone Cold Steve Austin's greatest match ever is.... Summerslam vs Kurt Angle ? Wrestlemania/Survivor Series vs Bret ? Any of the Rock matches ? vs Steamboat ? Shoot.
