Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched the Rock/Cena DVD and it was highly uninteresting. I liked the part where Cena discusses his crowd reactions and whatever backstage footage they have before and after the match but otherwise, it was the same ol' shit we've seen a million times and twitter, twitter, twitter and more twitter.

I love the ending. It was a couple of days after Stu Hart passed away. Benoit started regularly using the Sharpshooter from that point on as a tribute.

That Benoit/Albert match... that the one where Albert basically drops Benoit head first onto a steel chair? Ouch.

IT'S BEGUN! Unblurring of the WWF logo.

So surreal.

Yep, Albert loses his grip and Benoit falls on his neck onto the steel chair. That must have really hurt bad. Benoit was truly a machine in the ring, nothing could stop him. He even came back out to finish TLC III with a concussion and almost even took a con-chair-to to the head.

By the way, I'm thinking of watching WWF from 1997 but where should I start? I'm too lazy to go through the whole year because the first few episodes have not really been anything interesting but I'm thinking of starting from SummerSlam onto DX's debut and then continue from there onto the whole Attitude Era.

It began about 2 weeks ago . Regardless, it really is great news especially with the upcoming AE DVD set coming out.

The show after WM is probably the best place to start, though its worth going through the previous eps for the Austin/Bret Hart stuff and random bits from Vader, Undertaker, Sid and HBK (when he's actually there lol).

Well, I'm late to this party. lol

Haven't been keeping up with WWE's YT so I'm new. When is this AE set releasing? I haven't heard much.

I started on the first July episode of 1997 so that might be a good idea for you. I have reached Summerslam now.

Watching SummerSlam 97 as I'm typing this from that very link. I got hold of it a few weeks ago and it's damn useful for the AE and pre-2003 stuff which is the point where I'll stop and continue my journey from the end of 2004 until 2008. It might take a long time but when I'm finished, I can officially call myself educated on WWE's best years!


And a bit before that, I finally rewatched the HIAC match between Undertaker and HHH.

I rate it at ****1/2. Like Punk/Cena at MITB, the feelings is not the same when you already know what happens beforehand which might explain why I rarely watch matches more than a couple of times. Slow start with them fighting outside the ring, then Hunter takes control and does his chair beatdown on Taker to the point where HBK almost stops the match before the Hell's Gate catches him. Crowd gets into extra and there's the SCM/Pedigree spot where even I believed that the streak would be over. After that, Taker sits up, takes control and starts performing a gang of his signature moves from the Snake Eyes/Big Boot combo to the Chokeslam. A bit of epic back and forth with great storytelling, then in a WM26 recall, HHH does the DX Chop taunt which leads to the Tombstone ending it once and for all! This match is more reliant on storytelling than actual wrestling and as such, it wont be as exciting as the very first time. Still a classic, though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

CM Punk vs Mark Henry - Raw 4/2/12 - ****1/4

One of the best Raw matches we've had in years. Really believable, well done David/Goliath matchup. Crowd was really into it and they build Henry as such a monster. The comeback sequence and the build to it is awesomely done as well. Everything about this match just kinda owns.

CM Punk vs Mark Henry - Raw 4/16/12 - ***3/4

This wasn't as good as the 4/2 match but the No DQ element added to it well. I liked the finish quite a bit and I felt it still made Henry look good while putting over Punk big time.

Whoever the genius was that suggested a short Punk/Henry series within Punk/Jericho deserves a promotion.
