Not really sure about it, but I think I'd put it on ***3/4. Same problem there. HHH just keeps performing finisher after finisher and Undertaker kicks out. Now their WM28 match was different because even though they still overused finishers, it was spread out and they were telling an amazing story with it.

Worst case I've ever seen of finisher abuse in WWE is Trips/HBK HIAC.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm going to soon reach Bad Blood 04 so I'll finally get around to watch that HIAC match. I just gotta finish Judgment Day which I gotta say, I'm not excited about at all. Smackdown 04 is like Raw 03 in the first half of the year.... just boring. Whereas Raw 04 is even better than Smackdown 03, providing entertainment for it's whole duration with every weekly episode. For JD, Eddie/JBL is interesting specially with all the blood, Taker/Booker has potential in-ring and the only other match with any real build-up is Cena/Dupree which I'm not expecting much from as Cena's match quality has regressed since turning face. The rest are usual filler with lots of tag team matches which I really don't care about.

I miss Rene Dupree. Think he had great potential.

Oh God, the Smackdown brand-only PPVs in 2004 were terrible

Fan since 2001

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Since we are discussing finisher kick-outs, what do you guys think is the best kick-out moment ever? Michaels kicking out of the Tombstone at WM25 and Taker kicking out of the Tombstone at WM27 have to be up there with the greatest.


BOW DOWN BITCHES

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker's face when Michaels kicks out makes it even better.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Michaels at WM 25 was incredible. Rock refusing to go down at WM 17 maybe. Punk kicking out of an AA @ MITB iirc was awesome.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Fatal-4-Way - *3/4. Never really gelled, Sin Cara had the worst awareness and awkward selling I've ever seen. Randomly walking around outside the ring unhurt and at one stage clutched his stomach, then 5 seconds later fell to the canvas and rolled out the ring.

Tag Team - **1/2. Fine as a match, but it was more about the interaction between Kane & Bryan. Backstage segment was awesome.

Cesaro/Ryder - **.

Ziggler/Orton - ***. May be worth more but I couldn't get invested into the match. Every time I heard Vickie Guerrero I zoned out entirely (which was A LOT).

Divas - *3/4. More than adequate for them.

Sheamus/Del Rio - **3/4. It probably deserves more but I didn't care, especially when the Brogue Kick got re-instated. Sheamus' quick recoveries from prolonged submissions are tiresome.

Cena/Punk - ****. I agree with most of the comments on the ending and the spam finishers. The only false finish I actually believed was the Rock Bottom. But they have great chemistry and the crowd is always heavily into it.
