Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched WM 22. Think I'm just gonna run through the '06 PPVs.

Masters/Carlito vs Show/Kane - **1/2
MITB II - ***1/4
JBL/Benoit - ***1/4
Edge/Foley - ****1/4
Boogey/Booker - DUD
Mickie/Trish - ***1/4
Taker/Henry - **1/2
HBK/Vince - ****1/4
Mysterio/Orton/Angle - ***1/2
Torrie/Candice - DUD
Trips/Cena - ***3/4

Love this show.

- Despite not being a technical masterpiece, I find HBK/Vince so entertaining. Thought it really put together a story too. Would've marked if Bret had made the save on Shawn but it was still too early for him to come back.

- Don't like Trips/Cena as much as their other two matches, but it's still pretty good.

- Despite some horrible booking, I'm still really entertained by the triple threat.

- Edge/Foley OWNS.

- As a whole the show is just really fun.

Vince is awesome at getting his ass kicked. No joke, the guy is an extreme badass when it comes to that. I find myself thoroughly enjoying most Vince McMahon matches. Felt so sorry for him when he was waiting for HBK to elbow him through the table, poor guy must not have known when it was coming.

LOVE the crowd for HHH/Cena at Mania 22. To this day I wish I could've heard the reaction had the finish been different.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm watching The 50 Greatest Finishing moves right now and the only irritation point so far is that Kurt Angle is ranked 25 with "his" ankle lock. I think it's disrespectful towards Ken Shamrock,the man who introduced the move into pro wrestling. I understand they need to include Angle into the list but they didn't even mention Shamrock once. How rude. I think Kenny is on bad terms with Vince.


EDIT:

IRRITATION POINT 2: Edge's spear? what about Goldberg?????

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is there anywhere I can find the steel cage match between Benoit & JBL that took place on Smackdown a few weeks after WM22? I've been searching everywhere but only a bit of it is in dailymotion and the full match has been impossible to find. And unlike 2003/2004 (and the AE years), finding full episodes for 2006 is very rare on youtube.

Taker/Lesnar Unforgiven 2002- ***3/4

Need to re-watch it but I remember having it at that rating... or ****. I need to re-watch it though to get an up-to-date opinion. Actually might do it later today if I'm in the mood.

I'm watching you...

I enjoyed that match and that storyline too, ( Hell it's what got me into wrestling at 7), my only problem is the unnecessary conclusion of Tracy (AKA Melina), just seemed so out of place. That being said I love the match, and I like the DQ (could've been a stronger DQ, but that's nitpicking). People seem to forget storylines when rating some matches and with this one they forgot how great Brock's handling was at this point. He had destroyed Hogan, beaten Rock very decisively, and looked just unstoppable. Meanwhile, Taker is maybe the one guy that can stop him and for most of 2002 he was the top guy again. Add to Heyman's douchbagary with Taker's wife and mocking Taker's unborn child, including one of my favorite lines in wrestling history, Brock: Life's a BITCH! The reason I love this line is not because of the line itself, but the way Brock says it I can't describe. Also, he does he puts his hand on Taker's wife's pregnant stomach. Interesting how subtle touches work stronger than, oh I don't know, KILLLING THE BABY. Hell if this were Vince bookin' it he'd probably have lesnar gore her through the wall, but the little touch made the seriousness come across. Just to give you an understanding of how much SM was better than Raw, while SM was doing this RAW was preparing for a necrophilia angle. Wow, I got sidetracked. Any way good match.

Favorite Spot:
DAT CHAIRSHOT. Any body who watches this match knows exactly what I'm talking about.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You ever look at a set of ratings from various reviewers before watching a match, and then watch the match itself and say "these guys are morons, this is fucking AWESOME" .... I just got that feeling. I've finally found the most underrated match of all time. It deserves it's own review on the side in contrast to a mini one...

Brock Lesnar vs The Big Show Stretcher Match : Judgment Day 2003

The story going into this match is basically that Big Show is the ultimate bully, destroying Rey Mysterio and every single "little guy" he can get his hands on. Now, you see for some reason or another, Brock Lesnar isn't putting up with any bullshit, and the next big thing isn't going to lose to a bully... HE STANDZ UP 4 WWE so to speak. In the Hulkamania era onwards, fans had no idea how this match type would work, but BROCK always manages to get the job done. Big Show coming down to the ring with the names of his victims on a stretcher board and HERE WE GO !

These two begin just pounding away at each other with some really stiff shots. Show is moving incredibly fast here as he goes for a running strike on Lesnar but eats the post. MAN did that look brutal, as Lesnar takes the stretcher board and proceeds to keep nailing Big Show across the back with it over and over and over again, in what looks to be extremely painful. Big Show tries to rebound, but Brock takes the board and chops Big Show down like the monster he is, starting with the legs, and then the midsection over and over and over. What a pace these two are working at, as this isn't just a match, it's a brutal fight between two monsters. Love the psychology here, as if Show catches Lesnar with a few shots, Lesnar could be doomed, therefore Lesnar has to move lightning quick (which he does, Brock moves like a cruiserweight in this one).

This is just so back and forth, with Big Show trying to slow down Lesnar's incredible pace with slow but effective power moves, but since Brock is just as STRONG as he is fast, Brock isn't having any of it and proceeds to manhandle Lesnar all over the arena. The actual set up stretchers are used as well, as Show repeatedly slams Lesnar on them in what also looks to be very painful. Lesnar is repeatedly unsuccessful in dragging Show across the line, so what's his plan ? TO CHOKE THE BIG FUCKER OUT WITH A PAIR OF CABLES! Show looks DEAD, but his saving grace is that Lesnar can't push Show across the line because he stays choked (almost hung) by the cables.

These two make it back to the ring apron, where Brock pushes Big Show off where he bounces off of the base of a stretcher ! That was one of the most painful looking things that I have ever seen in wrestling, what a bump by Big Show. Lesnar says "I got a plan" and goes to the back, only to have REY FUCKING MYSTERIO come out of nowhere to try and get revenge on the Big Show for his past transgressions, only to get caught by the big man. Just when Brock disappears and Rey looks like he's leaving on a stretcher as well, BROCK BURSTS THROUGH THE FUCKING SET ON A FORKLIFT and parks it right next to the ring. He climbs to the top of the forklift which obviously distracts Big Show, leaving Rey to put Show in a sleeper, choking him out. Brock then does what surely should be considered insane and JUMPS OFF THE TOP OF THE FUCKING FORKLIFT OVER THE ROPES ON TOP OF BIG SHOW. That was one of the best looking spots I have ever seen. BIG suplex and a BIG F-5 end this AWESOME MATCH.

HOLY FUCKING BIG SHOW JESUS JIM ROSS SLOBBERKNOCKER STONE COLD STONE COLD STONE COLD CHRIST that was awesome ! These two just go at it NON-stop , and it might be.. Well.. IT IS... The most underrated match I've ever seen (WHY does nobody have this at **** ? ) and DEFINITELY the greatest match in the history of the Big Show, who takes one of the worst and stiffest beatings I've ever seen in a wrestling match. Brock's performance was GODLY, and if you haven't watched this match in the last month, go do it RIGHT FUCKING NOW. It's awesome.. I mean it :hhh ... YOU FUCKERS !

**** 1/2





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
