Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^ To play the devil's advocate, I think one needs to be a "jack of all trades" to be successful in wrestling. Master of one and not-so-good on other trades makes one too one-dimensional.

There have been a brilliant few, but those are very few.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

There are plenty of guys who have been hugely successful while only being great at one thing. Then again, I suppose HHH became as successfully as he has for being good at doing one thing *cough*Stephanie*cough* .

Plus I think guys these days try to adapt too many styles and aren't really good at any of them and end up having messy matches. Majority of the indies these days just seem to be guys trying to be all "Technical" on the mat while throwing some high flying shit in (DIVES~!), then getting juiced to make themselves look "hardcore" and finishing it off by pretending to be Japanese and hitting each other with stiff strikes before finishing the match. Then we end up with tons of guys going the same thing having the same matches and few of them really being able to put it all together and having good matches. I know its not ALL like that and there are some good wrestlers in the indies having good matches, but for every good wrestler having a good match there are 20 more doing the same shit I just wrote about lol.

So in summary, HHH isn't particularly good at any one thing which is probably why he's been mediocre for the better part of the last decade .


























HHH sucks.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

For those who underestimate the power of Trips, look no further than in this thread to be proven wrong, because it seems as if he's the ONLY guy we've been talking about all summer (then again, it could be just because he's the only guy I HAVE been talking about for the last...Well...However long I joined on to here).

One of my friends asked me the other day what WWF/WWE matches do I currently have at ***** , and besides HBK, Hunter has the most IMO. His best matches are up there with the best of the best, and he was EXTREMELY consistent from 04-06 , it's just that ever since his return post second quad tear he has had some inconsistent moments in his career.

As a little bonus , here are my list of WWF/WWE wrestlers with multiple ***** matches :

Shawn Michaels : 5
HHH : 5
Undertaker : 3
Bret Hart : 3
Steve Austin : 3
Kurt Angle : 2
Chris Benoit : 2

However, I believe that HHH's best match would be 6th on my all-time list, while both the Undertaker and HBK have wrestled 3 matches in my top 5 EVER (which is INSANE to think about).

Unless they man up and stop the censorship on Benoit, they should never ever touch anything that requires bringing him up because quite frankly, technical superstaring (as those idiots like to call their wrestlers) should never be touched unless Benoit is in the discussion.

Other then that, the man has had some of the best matches of the last decade. Great matches with Austin, Rock, Cena, Jericho, Hardy, Lesnar, Undertaker, Batista, Benoit, Flair, Punk, HBK, Umaga, and even a LMS match with Orton. I dont know how anyone can say that he has been mediocre the past decade.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My ***** matches:

1) Benoit/Angle RR03
2) Austin/Bret WM13
3) Undertaker/HBK BB97
4) Undertaker/HBK WM25
5) Undertaker/Angle NWO 06
6) Bret/Austin SVS96
7) Foley/HHH RR00
8) Bret/Owen WM10
9) Punk/Bryan OTL12
10) Rock/Austin WM17


5 star matches from wrestlers:

Undertaker : 3
Bret Hart : 3
Steve Austin : 3
Shawn Michaels : 2
Kurt Angle : 2
HHH : 1
Chris Benoit : 1
Punk: 1
Bryan: 1
Rock: 1
Foley: 1
Owen: 1

Edit: I like playing this game. First, K1ngofK1ng's 5 star HHH matches and where I have them:

1. vs Cactus Jack : RR 00 (*****, so we're on the same page with this one)
2. vs Shawn Michaels : SS 02 (****1/2)
3. vs Chris Jericho : FL 00 (****1/2)
4. vs Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit : WM XX (****1/2)
5. vs Steve Austin : NWO 01 (****1/4)

And to Sparta101:

Great matches with:

Austin - Yep
Rock - YES!
Cena - Yep
Jericho - Yes, but only one, or two if you count the cell match, which I wouldn't say was a spectacular cell match by the standards back then, and they've had a lot of matches together
Hardy - Yes
Lesnar - No! No! No! NOOOOOOOOOO! :bryan
Undertaker - Yes
Batista - Yes
Benoit - Yes
Flair - Yes
Punk - No! No! No! No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :bryan
HBK - Yes
Umaga - No
Orton - Yes, but only one and they've had A BAZILLION matches against eachother.

I'm watching you...
