Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a big fan of the Cornette Invasion Angle booking thingymabob, but I do agree his WM card to end it is... iffy. Some great matches I'd personally want to see (Funk/Undertaker, Austin/Foley etc), but wasn't that good in terms of WCW Vs WWF or being the big feud ender. Aside from that I like his ideas for the likes of Benoit and Regal beating the piss out of each other, Funk winning a belt out of nowhere and keeping hold of it despite Vince's attempts to take it away etc. So yeah, some flaws no doubt, but I'd prefer it infinitely over Russo's. Russo was just essentially rebooking the NWO angle and nothing much else. If he had gone into more detail with things (especially the big payoff) then it could have been better, but meh.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a fan of just about any Legends of Wrestling show . Plus I think Bischoff is actually on the Monday Night Wars one so yeah, that's a huge plus. Haven't seen the End of WCW thing in a long time, but I remember not being that into it. Need to watch it again though lol.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So while I'm waiting to download the remains of 2004 and since youtube is becoming useless for wrestling with so many accounts deleted, I chose to randomly watch Survivor Series 2005 on the account that has all the SVS and Rumble matches uploaded before the inevitable most likely occurs.

Survivor Series 2005:

Chris Benoit vs Booker T - ***1/4 (Decent work by both, not their best match but the quality you come to expect from them.)
Trish Stratus vs Melina - **
HHH vs Ric Flair (Last Man Standing) - ****1/4 (Absolutely great match and I'm shocked Flair got up from 3 Pedigrees. Wow, was he bleeding like a stuck pig. I assume the first Screwdriver attack was really driven into his skull since he started to bleed heavily in an instant.)
John Cena vs Kurt Angle - *** (Better than first time I watched it but it's a bit too overbooked and Cena is too Superman like in here. Three referees laid out in the middle of the ring was a hilarious sight, though. And some decent wrestling when the match was in-ring based rather than dramatic.)
Teddy Long vs Eric Bischoff - 1/2* (What the fuck is this shit?)
Team Smackdown vs Team Raw - **** (Great elimination SVS style match-up. Smackdown prevails with Orton being the sole survivor for the third year in a row. Almost a throwback to the 2003 Austin/Bischoff match when Orton and HBK were the final members in the ring and Orton won half-dirty. Undertaker's return post-match was also nice.)

Overall: ***3/4 out of ***** (Pretty good PPV with two decent matches, two great matches and two duds. The good stuff is what you'll remember once this is finished so I give it a great score.)

Can't wait to DL Bad Blood 04 so I can rate that too.

And I really need to watch more DVDs, only seen a few and many great ones have slipped past me so far such as Austin's and the company docs. I might look into He Who Murdered Benoit and The End of WCW, though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I really like the Raw vs SD elimination match from that show as well as Flair/Trips. Didn't care for Cena/Angle at all.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I liked Orton's DVD. Documentary part was interesting as it discussed his personal problems and overcoming them. The match list was also good although it misses some of his best matches such as against Benoit (SummerSlam 04), Undertaker (WM21), HHH (LMS - No Mercy 07) and Shawn Michaels (Survivor Series 07). I like the fact that his match with Kurt Angle at Vengeance 06 was included, though. One underrated match, that is!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a fan of that Angle/Orton match as well, although I haven't seen it in a while.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Undertaker v Batista from 2007.

Wrestlemania - ***1/2
Backlash - ****
Cage match - ***
Cyber Sunday - ****

The Wretlemania match is damn good but I find it a little overated by some, Backlash is a great brawl and Cyber Sunday is a more improved version of Wrestlemania IMO.
