Thoughts ? I have about 19 matches left to watch, so if I watch 2-3 a day it shouldn't take me that long.
Bret was the clear cut MVP of this year... Not just for his amazing performances in the Taker matches and the final four match (btw, Vader is AWESOME) , but also for his match with THE PATRIOT at Ground Zero. Holy fuck is that match great, one of the best paces I've ever seen from that time period, and a TON of fantastic near falls. Great stuff.
Nobody ever talks about Michaels-Shamrock either, even though I thought it told a fantastic story that built Shamrock up to be this unstoppable monster, but Shawn has to fly all around and shit to stop him (because if Shamrock gets ahold of him, he'll KILL Shawn). HOW DID THEY FUCK SHAMROCK UP ? He was SO badass.
"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
