Vince/Shane Vs HBK is actually a really good match. God stuff made me , helps that I don't believe in anything like that though .

I honestly loved the HBK/Vince feud. That and early '06 as a whole was awesome.

Remember that ECW documentary I mentioned that is currently on kickstarter trying to get funded? And I said it had 9 days left with over $9000 left to go so it likely wasn't going to happen?

Well it got funded . Someone pledged $4000 on their own . So yeah, gonna get made. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...tling?ref=live

Going to meet Roddy Piper tomorrow , who is considered to be the greatest mic worker in the history of the game. However, Piper wasn't really known for his in-ring skill, but that doesn't say that he never put on some really great matches.

So my question to you guys is simple....... Top 5 Piper matches ? Obviously the Bret match would be on there, along with the Valentine match and other underrated matches from his career. Personally, Piper states that his favourite match was with Adrian Adonis at WM III. Thoughts ?

Just watched Beyond The Mat again I still can't stop laughing at that scene when Rock is obviously trying to get himself in the spotlight with foley and the kids backstage and Austin walks past and just notices and walks over to them and Rock suddenly acts like a nervous dog and steps to one side with a face like a kid told no Austin a badass back then and always

Backlash 2004:

Shelton Benjamin vs Ric Flair - ***
*Fun match that doesn't last too long and Flair puts over Shelton during his first push coming off two back-to-back victories against HHH.

Jonathan Coachman vs Tajiri - **
*Why did they draft Tajiri from Smackdown just to put him in a trainwreck of a match like this? And to make matters worse, Coach dominates most of this despite not being a wrestler to begin with. And the "Boring" chants were rather justified.

Chris Jericho vs Christian/Trish Stratus - **3/4
*Fun while it lasts and Jericho finally gets his revenge on the backstabbers after the humiliation he went through at WM20.

Victoria vs Lita - **3/4
*A decent match between two of the best women's wrestlers in WWE history. They do some good mat-wrestling and then some good back-and-forth using their moveset.

Randy Orton vs Cactus Jack - ****1/2
*An excellent blow-off match to an amazing and well-built feud that took place over the course of almost one year. Foley does an excellent job putting over Orton clean to prove his legitimacy and this is to Orton's career and the "pay your dues" stage what the JBL "I Quit" match was for Cena. Orton bleeds, takes some serious bumps and he should have definitely earned the smarks' respect at that point if he hadn't already. I also like how JR sells Foley's psychotic character and gives up on defending him. If it was today, Lawler would find any stupid way to defend the over-the-top actions of Foley seeing as he's become an ass-kisser to all the faces by any means necessary.

Rosey/The Hurricane vs La Resistance - *1/2
*This is to Backlash 04, what Brodus Clay squashes are to today's PPVs. Just random filler to kill time with no build and I don't remember it being announced on any of the preceding Raw episodes. Eugene randomly turns up and the faces win but really, if there's a piss-break in this PPV, it's this match. I admit I cracked up when Eugene was running the ropes in excitement like a little kid, though.

Edge vs Kane - **
*Edge's return match after being away from the ring for 13 months since February 2003. A disappointing comeback in a highly boring match. Hell, the crowd was more concerned chanting "You screwed Bret!" and "We Want Bret" to Earl Hebner than the in-ring action. I think I even heard some "You both suck!" chants towards the end, lol. I don't agree with that but if this was your first impression of either Edge or Kane, you would probably think that too.

Chris Benoit vs HHH vs Shawn Michaels - ****3/4
*This match has it all from signature moves to ref bumps to table breaks to sledgehammers but still, it can't live up to the classic these three had at Wrestlemania XX. I honestly have no idea why, but there's just something that isn't there. Might have to do with the fact that Wrestlemania is the biggest stage whereas Backlash is just another PPV because even this one has a great ending with Benoit making HBK tap out to the Sharpshooter to the delight of the hometown crowd and his entire family from his wife and kids to his mom and dad at ringside. WWE gives the Canadians the "one-up" on this in return for the screwjob with the ending as Benoit also waves the Canadian flag to close the show. Lastly, the crowd here are a lot better than the MSG crowd at WM but "the biggest stage of them all" is where it matters the most!

Overall: ***1/4 out of ***** (Three decent matches, two duds and two classics. All the variety in quality of matches puts this one in the middle of the road for me. But the two classics are enough to make this PPV worth a watch.)

There are a lot of scenes that are VERY depressing in that documentary like Jake Roberts daughter and Foley's wife and kids during the I Quit match (which I kinda blame on the mom, but I digress), one I found depressing was the scene where Terry Funk goes to the doctor's office. Maybe because I didn't know who Funk was before but man, that scene got to me.

Awesome, think I was the 4th or 5th person to back it so glad it got the full funding it needed.

I would have thrown some money at it (enough to get the DVD as a reward), but I'm broke. Ah well, at least I was able to give some to Nigel for his set (can't wait for that to be finish . Though not expecting it until next year now tbh).
