Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That cage match is one of the best I've seen. Pure entertainment and you can forget about logic in steel cage matches, to be honest, so might as well stop using it as an excuse to not enjoy a match!

And what do you think about the Benoit/The Rock cage match in 2000? I think it was stupid to have HHH and his friends coming out but Rock still winning.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

But there are PLENTY of cage matches with logic to them. Then they went through a period of having them all the fucking time and were completely meaningless and couldn't HAVE any kind of real story to them because there was nothing to build a story off of.

Rock/Benoit cage match is alright, rate it lower than Angle/Benoit.

Angle/Benoit (Cage Match): *3/4

But damn, it's one of the most entertaining matches of all time. Top 10 easily. Sooo much fun.

I'm talking mainly about the whole "He could've opened the door instead of climbing" thing. There are so many times this happens and is completely illogical if you take it as a real competitive match (as opposed to being scripted), there will barely be any enjoyment.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I enjoy Angle/Benoit purely because it gave me this:




Oh and all hail ModCal (again ).

Austin on gold on commentary during that cage match.

The suplex off the ropes was just mental.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Speaking of 2001 cage matches, which was worse?

Angle vs Benoit
Dudleys vs Hardys
Kane/Taker vs DDP/Kanyon

I've seen all three get terrible reports online, although I do enjoy watching them all from time-to-time (Rock vs Austin is undeniably my favourite cage match from that year though).

Fan since 2001

All 3 ARE watchable and I do enjoy them all, but BOD Vs DDP/Kanyon is definitely the worst one.

Benoit/Angle isn't good nor do I enjoy it. Grouchiest 19 year old ever. Austin's commentary is a favourite, though.
