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.)
***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
