Really good match, and Simmons was over as fuck. Probably wasn't deserving in terms of wrestling ability, especially given the other talent at the time, but again, he was over as fuck and seen as a "legit" champion given his football career and the fact he just looked like a tough bastard.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hmmmm.... I was mostly referring to his background. Is it me or did his winn kinda come of nowhere?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

His win DID come out of nowhere if I remember correctly, with Sting supposed to have been in the match but Jake took him out (been reading Foley's first book and he spoke a little about it), and a tournament or something was held that same night to decide the #1 contender, and Simmons won and then beat Vader.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Do you think his race has anything to do with him winning?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Where I bought Rock's latest set, got Mania as a bonus DVD. I remember watching the Snooki match, but not the Trips-Taker bit. Debating if I should (re?)watch it before the HIAC.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I finished watching The Best Of Wrestlemania DVD the other day. Was really surprised that on the DVD version they didn't include one of The Undertaker's matches from his amazing winning streak included. I mean they included Vince vs. Shane from WM 17.

They held a lottery with 12 guy's name in a bag and drew one out at random.

Damn, not even a match? LOL. Though Rikishi did earn a title match that exact way in 2000 .
