British Bulldog vs HBK (One Night Only 1997)

Not quite as good as their King Of The Ring match IMO, both still have really good chemistry and it's great seeing Bulldog at times manhandle Micheals with great power moves, the finish still pisses me off though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

What a fucking prick HBK is for that ONO match. Bulldog is wrestling in his home country and dedicates the match to (I forget who exactly... his mother maybe?) because they had cancer... and HBK changes the finish so HE wins the match and the European title, a belt he did fuck all with and dropped it to HHH in a finger poke of doom fashion match. Prick.

RR 04 is a great match. Rest of the PPV is completely skippable (not high on the LMS match these days), but damn the rumble is one of the best. Probably a top 5, though I love so many of them keeping a definitive top 5 or even top 10 is impossible .

Yeah mate, my sentiments exactly, it was Bulldogs' sister he dedicated the match to, who like you say had cancer, also Diana was there and Bulldog's mom and dad, its also the after match bollocks from HBK/HHH and all that fuck me off too, i was watching the match saying the exact same thing Jim Cornette did in his shoot, Bulldog should have proper beat the fuck out of Micheals, just another example of Micheals' ......ry(new word lol!!!)

I completely forgot he dropped the belt in such fashion to HHH, should have realised really.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Did HBK even defend the title before the HHH match? He was feuding with 'Taker and the belt wasn't on the line in either match that I know of. Then we moved on to the feud with Bret for the WWF Title.

Good point mate, i can't ever remember him defending it no, as ONO was in September of 1997, i did see this video lol:



Saw a comment in the YT comments about the 1995-Kevin Nash timeline programme, asked if HBK had knee surgury - fuck no he says!!!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Sorry to go on abit lol but on the My Journey DVD, HBK still stays basically that match was "good for buisness" to gain as much heat as possible - fuck off mate, he still stands by that call, yeah you apparantly found the man upstairs but the devil found you first...

Ends rant

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, good for business, got heat... because he didn't have enough fucking heat already? Was him and HHH jerking off, as Jim Cornette would say.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

More pretty much random ratings, any thoughts/disagreements?

Armageddon 2008: CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio - ***1/2
Survivor Series 2002: Elimination Chamber - ***3/4
Wrestlemania XIX: Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle - ***1/2 (I was a little underwhelmed, expected a lot better)
Great American Bash 2004: JBL vs. Eddie Guerrero - ***3/4
Bragging Rights 2009: Batista vs. Undertaker vs. CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio - ***1/4
Breaking Point 2009: Degeneration-X vs. Legacy - ***
Over the Limit 2010: Evan Bourne vs. Chris Jericho - ***1/2
Summerslam 2008: Edge vs. The Undertaker - ****

Watched all of these for the first time (except Punk/Rey but the only other time I saw it was live) yesterday, and they were all pleasantly good imo.
