Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Steiners/Head Shrinkers was good. Apart from that, trash. WM 11 might actually only be the second worst WM now I think about it. HBK/Diesel was probably around the same level as the tag from WM 9, then LT Vs Bam Bam was better than it had any right to be, and JJ/Razor was solid.

# 89 - WWE Championship - Biker's Chain Match
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. The Undertaker (No Mercy 2003)

I remember when I was younger this match pissed me off due to the lack of blood and certainly the lack of the chain being used. These days I can appreciate it more for what it is, but the same problems still sort of apply (not so much the blood). As a regular No DQ match this is fine. I liked the innovative stuff they did; piledriver on the steps, chokeslam off the top, etc. I understand Vince was doing literally everything he could to keep that chain away from Taker, but that finish still leaves a really bad taste in my mouth. If I was booking it, I definitely would've had Taker kick out of the first shot then had Lesnar win with either another one or an F5. That way the crowd would've still been invested in it and not super pissed by the ending. The match overall is pretty good though, last few minutes are especially great minus the ending. Not sure if it would've made my list, but if it did it would've been in the very early going. *** 1/2

# 86 - WWF Championship
Bret Hart (c) vs. The Patriot (In Your House: Ground Zero)

I've had this on tape for 15 years and don't think I've ever watched the full match. So, guess now's the time. Gotta say, the buildup video was pretty interesting. Enjoyed seeing the backstory from Patriot and the footage from All Japan. Also loved Bret's heel promo beforehand (surprising right?). The match itself was well... good I guess? Let me first say that The Patriot reminds me way too much of Mil Mascaras, and that's certainly not a good thing. He seems very stiff in the ring (in terms of his body language) and he can't sell the simplest things, like a punch or kick. He wasn't exactly bad in the ring but his moveset was very basic and he still seemed pretty green. Luckily Bret held up his end. He sold everything really well and I adored his legwork, despite it not going anywhere. The match was pretty overbooked, the Vader & Bulldog interference was totally unnecessary and it was pretty silly that the match continued after Bret got pummeled. Patriot got a couple nice nearfalls but at the same time he got WAY too many of them. Nothing awful, but nothing great at the same time. Tough one to rate and I'm disagreeing with you for the first time so far K1ings. ***

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I'm still going through the 2006 SmackDowns at a slow rate, and I've come to the point where Kurt Angle (and Taz and others I guess) leave for ECW. And honestly, 2006 SD Angle might be my favourite Angle period ever. Wasn't really really great or anything, but he got constantly paired up with Mysterio and had two of his top ten (at worst) matches with Taker. The stuff with Orton and Henry and handicap matches with MNM, etc. were kinda fun too.

I'm in the middle of June and Kennedy's come back, Orton was suspended and will be drafted to Raw soon, MNM is gone, Benoit's taking time off, Henry's about to get injured and the Great Khali is getting featured more. I'm a little worried about the next couple of months.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

All this talk of Smackdown 06 really gets me excited about watching that year despite having mostly heard negative things about WWE in 06. Right now I'm watching Smackdown after Bad Blood 04 (Raw PPV but still...) and JBL just cut an intense and kick-ass promo. That's right after CNBC fired him for the Nazi salute in Germany so he was legitimately pissed. The show has gotten better now in June compared to the first couple of months after Wrestlemania and the draft which raped the roster completely. And the cruiserweight division has truly been turned to a joke. Chavo lost to Jacqueline and she had the title for 10 days then he wins it back and drops it to his father.



And lol @ Backlash 07. "The only pose you'll be doing tonight is laying on your back in that ring... with me on top!"

The cruiserweight will soon get better with Spike Dudley's heel turn and Funaki's title reign. Looking at the roster now, I can see why the cruiserweight was lacking. You had Tajiri moving to RAW and Ultimo Dragon leaving the WWE.

If this "PG" picture is any indication of the upcoming The Attitude Era DVD, it will look awful.
