Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not to deviate from actual match discussion. But the biggest problem with that angle was Punk returning so soon. The whole idea was he had taken what the company was built-around and left. They didn't play that part up very well AT ALL. Vince should have come out the next Monday with Cena still as "champion". Not even addressing it. Until Punk started causing mayhem both in-arena and out-of-arena segments. Even costing Cena his title match at SummerSlam to a massively over face. That is what people expected. They expected Punk to be gone, and randomly show up to annoy Vince. Instead they pulled the trigger on the rematch far too soon.



Thanks Punk

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watching some AE episodes of RAW, imo, HHH in late 1999/2000 is the best run for any wrestler ever (even better or just as good as Austin 1998 or Rock 2000, of course just my opinion). The dude was a fucking amazing heel.

Sidenote, I hated think the two man power trip was overrated. It was entertaining but it was so illogical and felt a bit awkward. I loved them beating up Lita, but everything else was just meh imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched 1997/08/04 RAW episode today. Nothing special happened. Most matches were under 5 minutes (and poor) and they announced the Patriot vs Bret Hart at the next PPV. The most interesting thing is the Undertaker/Paul Bearer storyline.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Patriot vs Bret is actually an AWESOME match, it's just that some can't get past the fact that it's well... The Patriot

Been wondering if anybody could flip me that top 100 WWF/WWE matches that a few of you polled in quite some time ago. Was thinking about taking it and ranking the matches on it myself, giving it kind of a fresh take (since I've been spending hours every day watching match after match after match lol) .

10 WWF/WWE Championship matches left to watch, but since most of them are shit it's taking me longer than expected. So I've been catalouging every single ****+ match I've ever seen, starting with the E' . It occured to me that I haven't seen a few CLASSIC TV matches, so I've been mostly watching them. Time to throw out some STARZ!*

Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit FEB 04 : ****
Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit MAY 04 : **** 1/4
Steve Austin vs Chris Benoit SD 01 : **** 3/4
2 Man Power Trip vs Benoit/Jericho RAW 01 : **** 3/4

What's next ? HHH-Benjamin , Benoit-Regal VEL , HHH-Benoit (Goldrush AND Ironman) , Evolution 8 man tag from 04 , and other MISC highly rated things I haven't seen. I'm willing to bet I've seen atleast 90 percent of the WWF/WWE matches that I would have at **** 1/4 anyways.

So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

I shall see the match when I reach the 'In your house: Ground Zero'. I will admit, I never knew he used Kurt Angle's theme first . Ah well, this is why it's important to watch old episodes . I also didn't know Rikishi had a foreign gimmick before he officially became Rikishi.

By the way, why did the Brakus character fail?

I'm talking about this guy >

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Benoit/HBK on May 04 is a classic TV match. At ****1/4 for me too. And Benoit/HHH Ironman is easily one of the best Ironman matches ever alongside Rock/HHH and Angle/Lesnar. Overbooked ending aside, it's definitely **** for me.

Barely remember him, but I'm guessing he was a shit wrestler, plus didn't he lose to some nobody in the brawl for all tournament? Probably got released after that .

Wonder where we will get our new releases from now!
Truly feels like it's an end of an era

I don't so order stuff from silvervision now and haven't done for a good few years but I remember in the early 90s I used to rent silvervision vhs tapes from my local video store all the time. Amazing memories and it just feels it's sad to see the link broken.

The old silvervision logo and the old school intro's to the vhs tapes are great memories, very sad.

Cena is still the #1 guy in the business

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Does anyone have a link for Jerry Lawler vs Bill Dundee - LLT 30/12/1985?, I'm doing a review for a wrestling page and I need the link of the match, the vimeo link has expired and there is a Dailymotion link but it's bad quality. It's a shame that I can't watch my favourite match ever in a good quality.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat at Chi-town Rumble. Great match which had almost everything; great psychology, Reversals, technical wrestling, nearfalls and etc. I will probably watch their match at Wrestle War. Apprantly, that's their best match.
