That's probably it, the same problem with Edge and Orton. I had Edge at **** 1/4 and Orton at *** and 1/4 but it hurts both of those matches that I knew Taker was winning. I bumped up both of their ratings a 1/4 of a * because of that.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I started watching WWE shortly before they killed off the Cruiser weight division and I haven't watch a whole lot of the cruiser matches from the past. Any links/recommendations or top 5-10s of cruiser weight matches? Preferably WWE/F not WCW.

You should check out Rey vs Eddie at Halloween Havoc. Its WCW, but its a great match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Girlfriend bought me a bunch of DVDs for my bday today, one of them being The Rock vs John Cena : Once in a lifetime. This documentary is a Dr. Jekyl / Mr. Hyde scenario , and what I mean by that is that while this is a great documentary with some good production value... It is a fucking TERRIBLE wrestling documentary, one of the worst I've ever seen actually. Don't exactly know what the reviewer from WWEDVDNEWS was smoking to say this was better than the Streak DVD , but damn... I'm glad I watched it, and the DVD is very, very entertaining... But it's more for the casual fan than the guy who sits down and dissects the dichotomy of a match, and what really makes it tick.

About to pop in disc 2 , going to give The Rock's two return matches another chance (especially the Wrestlemania XXVIII match). Currently ranks as my number 16 match of the year, hopefully can jump up the list but I don't have much hope, going to keep an open mind on it however y

Speaking of this year and match ranking ; knocked down Punk vs Cena from NOC about a half a star, sits at **** at my number 7 spot. Completely overreacted on my first watch and looked past the matches flaws. Still a HEll of a ride, but doesn't even touch their first 2 PPV encounters. Please Rock and Cena... Make me find some enjoyment in your match so that I can look forward to next year

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

No Way Out 2004, Lesnar vs. Eddie - ****1/4

The stomach/rib work from Brock and the leg work from Eddie were both awesome sauce in this match, particularly Eddie's leg work where for a brief spell he was just relentless in pulling out submission after submission to try to get the win. That was great. Favorite moment of the match was Eddie's twisting reversal into the STF where he just folded Brock the fuck up. Shits all over Cena's STF by a country mile lol. The crowd felt a bit flat to me though and the people in the front row looked bored as fuck during certain points. Goldberg coming out certainly woke them up and from that point on the place was buzzing. Great win for Eddie and Brock looks somewhat strong in defeat. Kudos to Cole on commentary too btw. Great match.

Mania XX up next.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If you want to talk about some of Undertakers Mania matches prior to Mania 23ish then you gotta look at the Kane match at XIV. Kane was booked as such a monster, and was really over as such. They did a really good job of making him untouchable, even physically dominating the Undertaker in the build-up. The match was fine. But what makes it great is the culmination of the entire feud, Undertaker finally agreeing to fight his brother. Something we've been waiting for since the Hell in a Cell match in, what, Novemberish? Great build, cool match, fun wrestling.

That or Orton at 21 might've been his best before 23.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Could someone kindly give me a top ten of 2003? I want to brush up on that year, haven't seen many of those PPV's or things from that year since it happened. If ten is too much, five is fine.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Likely gonna miss some stuff out, but here we go:

Benoit/Angle RR - ****1/4
Angle/Lesnar WM - ****1/4
Jericho/HBK WM - ****1/2
Austin/Rock WM - ****1/2 (imo their best match together)
HHH/Booker T WM - **** (hugely underrated and often shit on because of the finish)
Lesnar/Big Show JD - ***1/2
Eddie/Benoit Vengeance - ****
WGTT Vs Kidman & Mysterio Vengeance - ***1/2
Undertaker Vs Cena Vengeance - ***1/2
Lesnar Vs Show Vs Angle Vengeance - ***1/2
Eddie Vs Benoit Vs Tajiri Vs Rhyno SummerSlam - ***1/2
Angle Vs Lesnar SummerSlam - *****
Angle Vs Cena No Mercy - ***3/4
Undertaker Vs Lesnar No Mercy - ***1/2
Team Bischoff Vs Team Austin Survivor Series - ***3/4

And then you have some great TV matches like Angle/Lesnar Iron Man, Angle/Undertaker, Lesnar/Benoit, HBK/Jericho, HBK/HHH and probs some other stuff I'm missing out.
