Didn't think their Iron Man match sucked (and giving it ***1/2 for a match you thought sucked is a little... odd
), but agreed it was average. A match that DID suck between them was this one:
Kurt Angle Vs Shawn Michaels - Raw 16/01/2006
Angle got beat last week in the tag match thanks to Shawn, then he went to SD and became WHC. LOL.
Oh, and if HBK loses, he s fired.
Raw might have the more "unpredictable" feeling being live, but at least SD can edit shit so matches don't start during a commercial fucking break. Only on the third Raw of the year and its already happened like, 3 times lol.
Typical back and forth stuff that you would expect based on their previous matches, until Divari gets involved and causes HBK to fall out of the ring. He gets superkicked for his troubles, but Angle runs up behind HBK and hits the Angle Slam (his finisher btw) on THE FLOOR. Oh joy, commercial break... and the match is still going because a finisher on the floor isn't enough.
Speaking of finishers not being enough... an Angle Slam from the fucking ropes doesn't even end it. Only one thing to do now, random Ankle Lock! And yep, there it is lol! HBK escapes a few attempts, but Angle finally locks it in as Divari looks on and laughs... only to get slapped in the face. Poor guy keeps getting his face attacked, so he runs in with a chair, accidentally hits Angle with it allowing Michaels to get the win.
Yeah, didn't like this at all. Angle is as dumb as ever and honestly HBK doesn't really bring... anything to the match to try and save it either, other than a couple of shots to Divari just for the hell of it. Can't believe I gave this ***1/2 before...
