Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Speaking of Taker's forgotten or unknown to many matches, Cal, I remember you writing a review on a Taker/Mr. Kennedy match from Germany (I think) you said was great. I never got to see it but I always thought Undertaker made Kennedy look legit in their 2006 feud.

Yeah, match is fantastic, and imo better than any of their PPV/TV bouts together, and I rate those highly as well. I had the match uploaded for a while, but with MU dying that time it got lost .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched Summerslam 2005 not long ago, I thought Jericho/Cena was fantastic. My favourite match from Cena in 2005 by far. When the crowd really gets going with the "Lets Go Cena/Cena Sucks" chants it gets ridiculously loud. **** from me.

Thursday, March 26th: Arrive in San Jose.
Friday, March 27th: Day trip in San Francisco, NXT Live (Block 14, Row K)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Was there live! Here in D.C, epic card but a lot of underwhelming matches (Batista/JBL, Benoit/Jordan) and some duds too like Angle/Eugene. Still, Eddie/Rey, Edge/Hardy, Orton/Taker and Cena/Jericho were all excellent matches. I actually thought HBK/Hogan was good stuff too, it wasn't till I got home and went online did I hear all the talk of overselling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

SummerSlam 2005 is an excellent PPV. Eddie/Mysterio, Cena/Jericho, Orton/Taker, Edge/Matt are all good as is HBK/Hogan. I need to rewatch Batista/JBL and don't remember much about Angle/Eugene. But I found Benoit/Jordan pretty hilarious with the record setting time. Still, Benoit should have had a much better SummerSlam send off since it was his last one ever!

For me, the better was definitely Team Kofi vs Team Orton. Kofi pinning Punk & Orton in about 8 seconds was remarkable. Can't believe at one point in that match I actually thought Christian was going to pin Orton.

The first 5v5 was a bit of a squash but it demonstrated 'the future' with Sheamus, Drew & Miz surviving. Pretty amazing to think 4 of Miz's team have been world champions, while 4 of Morrison's team have now left the company and the last man standing (Bourne) doesn't exactly have a safe position.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I can't even remember any of Benoit/Jordan tbh. I just remember being disappointed by it, I remember then I was actually enjoying Jordan's work.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Urgh, fucking hated Orlando Jordan lol. I remember a horrible, horrible time on SD around 04 when the midcard was filled with OJ, Cena, Rene Dupree, Booker T, Kenzo Suzuki, RVD and a couple of others and fuuuuck, it was so bad. Not a single good wrestler in the bunch, and they were all so DULL. Even Cena, who was babyface and doing less and less of the rap stuff (which I'm not that high on anyway even back in his heel days).
