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
