Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2005 is a top 5 year in wrestling history (match quality wise) ever IMO, bar none. You had the epic HHH-Batista story arc that went from NYR 2005 to VEN 2005 in one of the greatest blowoffs of all time , two fantastic HBK-Angle matches, the greatest multiman ladder match of all time in MITB I, Rey and Eddie tearing the house down multiple times throughout the year, Flair and Hunter basically killing one another in 2 big time PPV matches, the rise of John Cena, the great RAW-Smackdown feud, the edge-hardy situation, and my pick for feud of the year and one of the greatest feuds in the ruthless aggression era ; The Undertaker vs Randy Orton. I mean , DAMN , that's not even touching the surface as to how great this year was , a fantastic time to be a wrestling fan for sure. For TV matches we had the EPIC Rey-Eddie match, the first round of the gold rush tournament (a top 5 episode of raw ever IMO, two **** matches in one night is insane for a TV show) , the edge-Kane specialty matches, Taker-Orton , Taker-JBL streetfight, JBL-Angle LMS, and a whole fuckload of other awesome TV matches. My favorite year in wrestling ever, bar none. Speaking of Taker-Orton, I loved how the feud was basically a culmination of Ortons entire legend killer character, easily his best feud, and one of takers greatest feuds ever (which is saying ALOT) . I'll go more in depth about this later, writing this in the middle of a 3 hour drive on my IPhone , anybody know how to break things up into paragraphs on this thing ?





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. 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

Undertaker Vs Orton - Armageddon HIAC
HHH Vs Batista - Vengeance HIAC
HHH Vs Batista Vs Orton Vs Jericho Vs Benoit Vs Edge - New Years Revolution Elimination Chamber
HHH Vs Flair - Taboo Tuesday Cage
Eddie Vs Mysterio SD

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah I forgot about the Chamber match, too. That's actually one of my favorite matches ever. TEN TIMES THE KING~!

The entire storyline building to Batista/H was so well crafted. Don't see stuff like that anymore.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really got some catching up to do with 2005. Seen a fair amount of matches but a lot of stuff like any Eddie/Rey match (excluding WM21 & SS), Flair/HHH (don't know the results and don't want them spoiled but I guess HHH wins anyways) and more. 2005 should have been the point where I started watching wrestling because it was all there for me but I was uninterested and regret it now.

Top 5 matches that I've seen:

Batista/HHH (Vengeance) - ****1/2
Cena/JBL (Judgment Day) - ****1/2
Elimination Chamber (New Year's Revolution) - ****1/2
Undertaker/Orton (Armageddon) - ****1/4
HBK/Angle (Wrestlemania 21) - ****1/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Benoit and Eddie even had an underrated match on Smackdown in July 05 that doesn't get talked about much.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Streak

HBK 1 *****
HBK 2 **** 1/2
Edge **** 1/2
HHH 3 ****
HHH 2 *** 3/4 (ending sucked to me )
Orton *** 1/2
HHH 1 *** 1/4 (good match, but stole the show Sheamus? Really? Lol)
Flair *** 1/4 (highlights were JR/King exchanges and AA)
Batista *** (felt too much like Diesel/Taker 2)
Kane 1 *** (Again Lawler was awesome, and at Bearer stomping Taker)
Diesel ** 3/4 (Lol'd at Diesel's "I'M THE SHIT, I TOLD YA!" at the start, and Lawler's commentary was the highlight of the match)

Everything else I didn't watch, I bumped Edge and Orton up 1/4 a * because if I was watching that live I would have thought it was over after the RKO and the Spear.

Jericho vs Edge WM26 *** 1/2 (wtf'd at the ending big time)

Going to watch HBK/Cena at WM23 tomorrow

I watched it right after WM12, and it felt like I was watching the same match. "I've never seen anyone push Undertaker like I have here" "He can't be stopped!" "He's on a mission", only difference was no showboating from Batista like Diesel did. I admit, I was half paying attention to this match, I might give it another watch. But on first go, that's what it felt like.
