Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Smackdown - January 13, 2006
Randy Orton vs. Chris Benoit - ****1/4 (Holy fuck, I think I have a new favourite TV match. Must watch for ANYBODY, IMO.)
World Hevayweight Championship Battle Royal - ***1/2

A TV classic and a forgettable battle royal (aren't they all.) I'm more than happy. Why haven't I seen that Benoit/Orton match before? I actually prefer this to their Summerslam 2004 match, and I've always pimped that match a fair bit.


Smackdown - January 20, 2006
JBL vs. Bobby Lashley *1/4 (Lashley fucking sucks)
Matt Hardy vs. the GOAT Fit Finlay - ***
Rey Mysterio vs. Mark Henry - **3/4
Randy Orton vs. Orlando Jordan - **3/4
Kurt Angle vs. Daivari - Meh

Finlay debut Mysterio be Mysterio, Orton be Orton. Not the best for 2006 standards but I'd take this over a lot of the shit we've got since then.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My SD 06 ratings from what you've done so far (I only watched the matches I wanted to, not everything):

Chris Benoit Vs Randy Orton - Smackdown January 6th 2006 - **1/2 (not very good at all, screws up Segunda's idea of them having the perfect chemistry or whatever )
Rey Mysterio & Batista Vs MNM - Cage Match - Smackdown January 6th 2006 - 1/4* (GOD AWFUL)

Chris Benoit Vs Randy Orton - Smackdown January 13th 2006 - ****1/2 (YES! YES! YES! YES!)
20 Man Battle Royal - WHC - Smackdown January 13th 2006 - ***3/4

Matt Hardy Vs Finlay - Smackdown January 20th 2006 - ***
Mark Henry Vs Rey Mysterio - Smackdown January 20th 2006 - ***1/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hmmmm... don't think so. Royal Rumble's, yeah, but battle royales... can't think of any. Best 2 off the top of my head are that SD 06 one and the Raw 04 one where Orton won #1 contendership for SS (same night as Benoit/HHH Iron Man). Would have both at ***3/4.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Mysterio/Henry 2006 is awesome, shows Henry's potential before his monster 2011 run as someone who always had the ability in him but was held back by management.

Finlay debut may be one of the better debuts of all time. Just a perfect introduction to the character and his motivations in the ring, completely unique and creative offence to separate himself from other traditional debut matches etc.

Can't remember a legit awesome battle royal on TV, but they're usually fun as fuck. The 2012 one on Smackdown which Santino won was honestly incredibly entertaining to see all these undercarders basically just try and make a name for themselves in 20 minutes, and you got some really fun interactions and multiple feuds continuing (Usos focusing on Epico/Primo, other lowcard feuds having both guys attack the other repeatedly). Think that 2006 one is usually in the discussion for best ever though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

IDK about four star match but Mr. Perfect's performance in one battle royal on the SNME set is incredible with all the bumping he did for the faces.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That Benoit/Orton match that ends the Best of 7 series between Booker and Benoit is awesome. I thought it had a bit too much drama and was extended for a bit too long with Booker and Sharmell taking too much of the attention (which makes sense here, I guess) but it was Orton and Benoit doing what they do best together and that's create great matches.

Xtremewrestlingtorrents has them up, I'm halfway through downloading. It will take a few days but is worth it.

----------------------------------------------

Also top 10 WHC matches I can think of in no specific order: (Not seen all of them so take this list with a grain of salt)

Benoit/HHH/HBK (WM20)
Elimination Chamber 2005 (NYR)
Angle/Undertaker (NWO 06)
Batista/Undertaker (WM23)
Benoit/HHH/HBK (BL 04)
Orton/Benoit (SS 04)
Batista/HHH (Vengeance 05)
Orton/Christian (OTL 11)
Elimination Chamber 2002 (SVS)
Undertaker/Batista (BL 07)

I really need to watch HBK/Y2J at NM 08.
