Ooooo, Drew and Steamboat? Gonna have to give that a watch. I should keep checking the matches for NXT every week to see when Drew wrestles.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

NXT is my favorite WWE show now. Even the fucking Divas matches are watchable and actually very good at times. Paige vs. Alicia Fox from 2 weeks ago is one of the better diva matches I've seen. Rollins/McGillicutty for the NXT title next week. Ascension are boss. The tag action on NXT is unreal. Ascension and Uso's have had a couple of crackers. Slater and Gabriel had a great match a few weeks ago too for that matter. It's an awesome show.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So the wrestlers don't try and chat up the Diva's anymore? Or the show is book like a bad Celeb love island?

The Finlay/Benoit matches were still good. Slamboree '98 being the main one. 14 minutes and they gave us something worth while(***3/4). First time Benoit took the suicide dive into the chair spot...unless he did it upon a random ECW/Japan match.

Which Meng match are you referring to? They had two on PPV that year and they both run through my mind. Youtube is calling my name to settle this.
Yeah can't say I care for any Angle/Michaels match, watch the Jannetty match as Yeah1993 says however, infinitely better.

Both PPV matches (GAB and Slamboree) are well worth anyone's time, but aye Slamboree is the better of the two. Still its Benoit bumping and selling against a stiff monster whilst laying in some of his stiffest strikes himself. Its a can't fail formula.

I would be baffled if the mat work in the Benoit/Angle is any good. They do some nice counters and all, but is it really "mat wrestling" at all? I don't need "mat wrestling" for the match to be good, though. I should watch the match later today.
Thanks for reminding me of some of Benoit's overlooked WCW matches, may give that Sting '99 match a watch to see if its as good as you say.

Yeah I totally forgot the Slamboree match when I was ratting off that statement. Still Benoit/Finlay is a match style not dependent on length to succeed.

As for the matwork/hold trading, I guess I just rememebered there being some 'terrific' chain wrestling which dominated the bout, and then seeing a bunch of people talking the match up on here and pointing to the 'sublime wrestling' just made me think I was walking in and about to watch a far more wrestling based match than what you're normally treated to in a WWE ring. When I actually watched it though, whatever chain wrestling they did do (very little) really didn't seem a cut above anything else anyone else on the roster could do. I mean Noble/Mysterio in their Velocity match probably pull off more visually appealing yet still excellent chain wrestling exchanges than Benoit/Angle in the Rumble match.

One of Eddie's finest individual performances. Whether he's being a ruthless machine on offence, or accusing Jericho of hair pulling when he's bested in a collar and elbow tie up, he just nails every aspect of a heel performance in this match and renders Jericho as merely a passenger along for the ride. You could take any half decent WCW babyface midcarder from that roster and put them into this match and I really wouldn't have expected the quality to drop at all, Eddie was that good on this particular night.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Did Benoit get to wrestle Hulk Hogan or Goldberg in one-on-one matches? Fuck it, tag team matches are good enough too!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Does anyone know of a good file converter? I have a few matches saved as AVI files that a friends wants me to put on a dvd for him, I have convertXtoDVD but unless you pay for it you have text running across the middle of the screen. So if anyone knows one it'll be a great help.
