Just watched the Definitive Ric Flair DVD doc, really enjoyed it, very inspired to watch some Flair matches now, I thought it was great.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You seen The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection DVD? OOP now I believe, but if you ain't got it, GET IT.

Alternatively I have about... 38 discs of Flair .

Edit: 44 discs of Flair including a 26 disc comp, a 10 disc "in japan" comp, a 3 disc "the end" comp (his final run in WWE), and a 5 disc "Vs Ronnie Garvin" comp .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah mate, bought a new (had to go Region 1) copy a couple of months ago, think I'll watch that next, always loved Flair's work and his whole persona but I may be getting a comp from you at some point (probably the Japan one) so many great matches I probably havnt seen

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Still so many great matches I haven't seen lol. One day I'll actually go through the comp myself .

Flair's Ultimate Collection is easily a top 2 DVD set ever released by WWE. WATCH IT NOW.

A charity shop near my house was closing down a few weeks ago and I picked up that, the Bret/Shawn rivalry and UFC 1+2 dvds for a combined 12 euros, best score of the year.
Ive always had a soft spot for the Flair/HHH taboo tuesday cage match from that set, even by Rics standards things get insanely bloody, his whole head turns a bright orangey red.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I hope it's alright to link to another board but it's relevant...

http://www.puroresu.tv/forums/topic/...t-of-all-time/

Inspired by this, I decided to check out what many consider HBK's best match to see if it holds up...

Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker - Hell in a Cell - WWF Badd Blood 1997
Watching this really fizzles out any thoughts that I had on Michaels being a bad worker after reading some comments online. Hell, he actually is a pretty good one. Sure his overselling did make a few 'serious' moments seem overly cartoony, but he also made other spots seem more barbaric and brutal because of the way he bumped. Shawn also gets criticized for his 'kip-up' comeback totally disregards any damage he had taken previously, which is probably my main issue with Shawn's matches nowadays. Here though, it wasn't a problem. Shawn being the dickhead heel that he is, didn't get a big comeback (being the heel and all...) and used the kip-up to show his arrogance after finally taking control of the Undertaker.

To give some perspective of how highly I rate Michaels nowadays; If I was to compose a list of top 50 WWE ring workers, I could definitely see HBK making the cut. Wrestlers still active in the WWE that I would rate above Michaels are Punk, Cena, Mysterio, Bryan, McIntyre and possible Ziggler. This topic really has changed my opinion on Michaels. I rate him nowhere near as highly as I used to and the criticisms really have opened my eyes to some of Michaels' faults, but it's really not enough to take Michaels out of the 'Good' bracket.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage (Wrestlemania 5). I rate the match 3 stars. Started slowly but it improved as the match went on. Hogan becoming the first to kick out of Savage's elbow drop was cool to see.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Been watching RAW throughout 1998 on the 05.04.98 RAW Terry Funk Vs Mick Foley (after throwing Dude Love and all his gimmicks away earlier in the night) was a chaotic match they obviously both loved it aswell.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wow the Big Show doc was pretty awful, only about an hour long, only 10 minutes spent on his WCW career, seems like they half assed it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Love the Ric Flair set, went into it liking him and came out of it loving him. Such a great worker and character

My favourite set is probably either the Savage one or Mysterio Biggest Little man. Have a real soft spot for the Guerrero Viva La Raza set as well

I keep getting drawn to the Kane set on Silvervision for some reason, is it any good?
