Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Depends if you want to watch a full documentary with comments from The Rock + others followed by the matches/extras, or watch a voice over detailing Rock's career in-between matches.

Watch the Journey documentary and the Most Electrifying Man matches if you want the perfect DVD. In 2008 Rock wasn't involved but the quality was great and they gave some good background. In 2012, it was a full doc and one of the best they have ever done.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I want some backstage footage and Comments from Rock and others on his career. I also want some off air promos from Rocky and classic Rock promos. Lastly, I'm really hoping to see his classic series with Foley.

Thanks for the help guys.

1. The documentary in 2012 and in a week, the Rock/Cena DVD.

2. Rock did 1000 segments like that but for some reason they didn't put even one here, you can watch a Rock/Austin off-air segment on the 2011 Austin DVD. That's the only thing I didn't like from the new set, ridiculous thing to do when you got so much content in the archive with no reason to save it.

3. The extras in 2008, 90 minutes of full promos IIRC.

4. In 2008 they put the SVS 1998 in the finals of the Deadly Games tournament, the LMS from SVTM and the Ladder match on RAW February 1999. In 2012, the Rumble 1999 match. So besides Rock Bottom, everything is there, unless you want their RAW and SD matches in 99 besides the Ladder.

On first watch this feels like the sleeper match of 2007 and one of the better matches in the year. Noble and Mysterio have always had outstanding chemistry with their famous Velocity 2004 match being the pinnacle of their matches, and once again they work a really excellent match built around limb selling and a methodical Noble workover. Mysterio's selling is some of the best I've seen him sell a limb, little things like collapsing into the corner whilst holding his arm and even grabbing the arm in the run up to the 619, constantly letting you know he's hurt and working it into his offence which focuses entirely on fast paced counters aimed at catching Noble off guard. Noble busts out some swank arm work that you expect out of him and gets a great amount in his short control segment with this being a sub 10 minute match, especially loved the hammerlock Northern Lights Suplex. Finish is excellent and they time it perfectly to create the false finish with Noble countering the senton, only to have his Tiger Driver turned into a roll through hurricanrana. Mysterio also busting out the La Mistica headscissor armbar submission also completely caught me off guard, as I don't recall him ever using the move in the past.
Always loved the matches these two had together, there's one on Rey's 2003 doc that has one of the coolest WWE finishes ever, as for Rey using La Mistica; he did it vs. Punk at Armegeddon 08.

I admit I enjoyed Hurricane vs. Noble at King of the Ring 2002.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Noble's honestly one of the most underrated workers of the past decade. His stuff in ROH is sooooo fucking good. Shame he never really did much in the E. His size didn't help him much though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Couple random ratings. Was just watching the FCA set on Netflix.

Triple H vs Umaga - CS '07 - ****1/4

Really, really good brawl with Umaga showing why he was one of the few bright wrestlers of '07. The splash from table to table looked awesome and it had a nice brutal feel to it, especially with Umaga using lots of strikes.

Cody Rhodes vs Randy Orton - Samckdown '11 - ****1/4

I think this is my new TV MOTY. I didn't realize how awesome it was the first time I saw it but goddamn this was what their whole feud should've been. Rhodes, on that night, looked on par with Orton. And I don't know if it was editing or not, but the crowd was eating this match up. And the symbolic end of the mask was great too. And this got a well deserved 20 minutes or so. Great, great stuff.
