It was nice seeing them show respect to each other after the match with a handshake and embrace. I wish they could have had a PPV match together sometime in 1993-1994. At least we have the Saturday Night's Main Event match. It's a rare treat seeing this match.
I smiled like a goof reading this. I should watch it soon.

Good PPV and other than Steph and DDP's buriel the angle was great up to this point. This PPV is the peak of the angle where everything seems to be good until the end of the ME when the angle jumps the shark.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just saw the very first three-four Raw shows again, plan on catching up on that entire year. 1993 was surprisingly good.

Heck it's more entertaining than what was put on tv the past few months that's for sure.

Raw 93 is a ton of fun to watch, especially if you saw it back in the day too. Random things will pop up that you totally remember and it always brought a smile to my face lol. Evil Doink ruled the fucking world back then. Why oh why did Matt Bourne have to get fired and then have the Doink character turn babyface?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just dug out Survivor Series 2002 again for the first time in ages.

Storm & Regal vs Goldust & Hurricane: **
6-Man Tables Match: ***
Kidman vs Noble: ***
Victoria vs Trish: ***
Lesnar vs Big Show: *** 1/2
Eddie/Chavo vs Edge/Mysterio vs Angle/Benoit: **** 1/2
Elimination Chamber: **** 3/4

Probably my favourite PPV of all time (even including Manias), just consistent from top to bottom and not a dud on the card.

Some random thoughts:
- That pop for D-Von!!
- Loved 3 minute warning as a team and it's impressive to see how much weight Jamal dropped when he became Umaga.
- Enjoyed the callback to RR 2000 with Jeff's swanton.
- Kidman's music was awesome
- Its strange to see a Diva's match getting that type of build and getting enough of a focus that it warrants a hardcore match, but Tara and Trish pulled it off really well and is one of the best Divas matches that I can remember.
- Lesnar/Show was short & sweet and showcased both guys' strengths well and didn't go on long enough for Show to drag it down. Was also a great way for them to turn Lesnar into a 'proper' face.
- Does anything else need to be said about the tag title match? Just brilliant from start to finish (I do miss "cruiserweight" Rey though...).
- I still think the original elimination chamber is still the best. All 5 guys were over (no Khali/Big Daddy V filler etc) and coupled with the sheer spectacle of the chamber and the time it was given, it is still one of my favourite matches ever.
- Will never grow tired of seeing the SCM out-of-nowhere on Jericho as he's got HHH in the walls...

Fan since 2001

History of the World Heavyweight Championship

is it any good? I think I might go and watch it for some of the older footage that I haven't seen before that was before my time.

I'm a mark for heel Doink, sadly a lot of people just think of his joke face run, when for a few months he had a great creepy carracter and put on good matches.
