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.
2011 TV MOTY? That makes us both. Rhodes looking on par with Orton is exactly why I love this match and Smackdown in general. Not only is it Rhodes getting valuable experience with wrestling someone more experienced, it's also giving him the rub and showing the audience that he IS a force to be reckoned with. I remember the spot after the Figure Four where Cole said something like "This must be the first time we actually see Orton retreating from an opponent." The match is just awesome.

Yep, very good technical wrestler who's also astute at working stiff and selling/bumping extremely well. Tbh I think he's far better as the methodical technician than Malenko ever was, though I don't think much of Malenko aside from when he's working sub 10 minute Nitro/Saturday Night matches.

Again, yep. His Velocity match vs Mysterio and his Glory by Honor title match vs Danielson are currently on my list for the best 100 matches of the decade, and the more I watch of him the more I'm amazed by how consistent he is at working the cruiserweight style but wrestling more like a mini Finlay/Regal and adding some great stories and control segments to matches. He's definitely alongside Tajiri and Mysterio as the top 3 WWE cruiserweights.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My favourite non-Rey match thing Jamie Noble did was during the Chuck Palumbo feud. He wore a shirt in a backstage segment that said "Noble -2 Pulambo -0" with Palumbo actually misspelt like that. I need to find it.

I remember that. Funny stuff

also his work with Nidia and the blind gimmick was probably his most memorable and the only push he got.

If I could find it somewhere I would buy that shirt in a heartbeat.
