Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

# 83 - WWF Championship
Shawn Michaels (c) vs. British Bulldog (King of the Ring 1996)

When I originally saw you had this so low on the list, I was like woah, big disagreement on that one. But I decided to hold my tongue til I rewatched it. Still love the shit outta this. Has just about everything you'd want out of a wrestling match; power, athleticism, mat wrestling, storytelling, beautiful transitions & counters, plus some highly entertaining commentary from Owen Hart. Bulldog's control segment was a joy to watch, every time you thought Michaels had a glimmer of hope he'd get hit with that powerful clothesline. Really the only thing to complain about is the ending, which was just weird as a whole. Had that been better this would've easily been a classic, but as is, it's still fuckin excellent. Probably be up at least 50 spots higher on my own list. **** 1/4

# 82 - WWE Championship - Triple Threat Match
John Cena (c) vs. Christian vs. Chris Jericho (Vengeance 2005)

Just a flat out fun watch. Exciting the whole way through with some innovative spots. Great job of actually keeping the other guy outside instead of them laying there for 5 minutes at a time. Christian's nearfalls were really well done, no complaints anywhere. *** 3/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm pretty sure I could watch every WWE Championship match that's ever happened on a PPV and not find a single match I like less than the Armageddon HIAC.

Some of the writing was abysmal, there's shitty segments/mic stuff and you have to sit through five See No Evil promos every episode, but you're promised at least like three good matches a week. And I'm not going to lie, I am SOOOO digging King Booker.

IDK about Raw, though. I wouldn't watch those in full.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Don't worry, Yeah, you still have Hardy, Finlay, Helms, Regal, Londrick and Mysterio on the shows around the point where you are up to . And Kennedy is actually good at this point in time too .

What did you think of Benoit/Henry btw?

Eh. Thought he looked pretty worthless against Scotty 2 Hotty in his return, but I'll see what happens.

Pretty fucking great and pretty much exactly how you'd want a Henry/Benoit match to go. Henry reversing the crossface by just turning face up and swinging Benoit was spectacular. I'm annoyed they didn't get a program because Henry got injured. I can't imagine how great a lengthy PPV match could have been.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Takes a couple of weeks for Kennedy to be in a match worth while, I'll give you that, but once he does he really gets on a roll. Working with the likes of Matt Hardy (at that time), Finlay, Benoit, Undertaker, Mysterio etc absolutely helps, but I don't think there is a single match with those guys where he is carried.

LOL, is that a photoshop or for real? The DVD got to be a joke if they are seriously going to censor it like that.

EDIT: If they are seriously canceling it because they want to pretend the Attitude Era never existed then it's going to be comical with this company from this point on. At least Benoit wont be alone from the list of things/people that are being swept under the rug!
