Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Maybe Michaels/Cena? WM23, Raw 4/23, and the early 09 Raw matches (think there were two).


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That was one I was close to suggesting, only thing that held it back for me was I couldn't remember for certain how many matches they'd had over the years. Anything from 4 or above would probably count in this criteria, and I can't recall a match of theirs being close to bad so aye that's definitely another contender.

I do think Orton/Benoit, Punk/Cena and Punk/Mysterio might be separated though just because of the number of matches they've had without any coming close to being below good.

Austin/Hart could be considered, SS 96, that South Africa match I hear many cite as a gem in their collection and of course WM 13. Still, aside from that the rest of their series is either contained in the 4 way or the Canadian Stampede tag rather than out and out singles matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker/HBK?

HIAC 97, RR 98, WM 25, WM 26

I don't remember Ground Zero 97 at all so I can't comment.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I find the Rumble and Ground Zero matches to be average in all honesty, and I'm not a huge fan of the WM 25 encounter though it is good. HIAC and WM 26 are definitely classics though, and the exchange in the 07 Rumble can't be overlooked in terms of a mini match. But aye I'd probably lump them in the definitely terrific chemistry category, but just under those who never produced an average or below match.

FWIW I do realise this is essentially a terribly nit-picky criteria, but I do find it fun to try and see how many pairings got consistent opportunities against one another and managed to deliver every single time.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker/HBK have the best chemistry in WWE History... Bar None.

IYHGZ 97 : ****
IYHBB 97 HIAC : ***** (GOAT Match , MOTY, MOTD)
RR 98 Casket : **** 1/4 (MOTY)
WM XXV : ***** (MOTY, MOTD, #3 GOAT WWE)
WM XXVI : ***** (MOTY, MOTD, #5 GOAT WWE)

One of only two pairs to have three ***** matches (the lone WWE representative) alongside Flair and Steamboat.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think it could've been a different story had HBK not missed 4 years due to injury. Think about how many more Taker/HBK, HBK/Austin, HBK/Foley matches we could've had, not to mention at least 1 () HBK/Rock match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Honorable mention to Rey/Jericho. Loved their feud a couple of years ago, and I'm sure they had some great WCW matches even if I can't recall anything other than Souled Out and BATB 98 (which I really enjoyed) at the moment.

edit - Jericho/HBK as well, I suppose. WM19 and they 2008 matches are all amazing.

Off topic, has anyone been more consistently amazing over the past 15-20 years than Rey Mysterio?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not to my recollection, its staggering how better he got since he joined WWE as he slowly adapted to his depleting athleticism and injury ridden body and slowly developed a more well rounded striking game with the occasional high spot to still keep the crowd going. Not to mention how better he got at timing and pacing his matches to perfection, throwing in some great false comebacks to keep the crowd invested and build to his eventual comeback as well as bumping and selling his arse off to get anyone and everyone over. WWE hasn't ever had a better TV match worker and his list of weekly good-great matches since 2003 and beyond is simply staggering. From Noble to Tajiri to Eddie to Finlay to Morrison to Jericho to Punk to Henry to Orton etc the list just keeps on growing.

Tenryu in Japan has been pretty awesome in the same time frame as the relentlessly violent veteran fighting anyone and everyone, but strictly in America no-one can match Mysterio for consistency. Its quite frightening how he got so much better from his WCW days where he was a dazzling high flyer with a good sense of timing, compared to what he is now: aka a complete wrestler.
