Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taker/Show NM- ***3/4
Taker/Show CS (LMS)- ****1/4
Taker/Show SVS- **

Taker/Show is such a fucking awesome and overlooked series of matches. Taker/Show NM surprised a lot of people when it happened and it ended up being a fantastic well-paced match between the two big men. Taker/Show CS takes everything great from the NM and adds to it and is a borderline classic. One of the best LMS of all time for that matter (I'd put it at number 3 behind Cena/Umaga and Jericho/HHH). Also it's Big Show's best match ever imo. Taker was legit the best in-ring worker in the company at that point in time imo, as his series with Edge also showed (and Batista the year prior). Taker and Show meshed so well in this feud, which is amazing considering they never really meshed well in the past. But with the 08 series in mind, Taker is imo Show's best opponent ever bar maybe Lesnar, whom while he never had a match quite as good with Show as the LMS between Taker and Show (the stretcher match is reasonably close), Lesnar/Show never had a bad match, where Taker and Show have quite a few stinkers in their careers against each other.

Speaking of stinkers, the 2008 series couldn't be perfect... and that's where the SVS match is. It's a brutal step down from the first two matches, and if you've never seen it, I'd suggest only watching the first two Taker/Show matches of the series and pretending the SVS match never happened. Though there was a cage match between them that I completely forgot/never seen I know someone in this thread has brought up a couple of times. I've gotta see it one of these days.

While you're at it, Taker/Show No Way Out 2003 is also worth checking out. ***1/4 I give that one.

I'm watching you...

Avoid the bad Casket match from Survivor Series and enjoy the 3 awesome matches. (No Mercy, Cyber Sunday, & Steel Cage on SmackDown)

I know I'm a little bit late to this... But where is the talk of Punk vs Taker at WM coming from? Seems incredibly left-field to me...

Just something the rumor-mill churned out because Punk's doing a "respect" angle imo.


As for earlier discussion on Cena, they are not the best John Cena matches but a couple of personal faves are Cena/Taker SD 6/24/04, Cena/HHH Raw 10/19/09, and Cena/Rock WM 28 (mostly for the live atmosphere I experienced from ringside). My Top 5 for him are Extreme Rules with Brock this year, Punk at MITB 11, the Michaels matches in 07, and the Umaga last man standing match.


Much gratitude to
CHAMPviaDQ

I really, really enjoy that Cena/Trips match the Raw before BR '09.

My SD '06 download is at 24%.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

No complaints on the Cena/HHH late 09 RAW match other than it was a carbon copy of their previous matches. (Mid 09 on RAW & Night of Champions 2008)

The BR extras on Disc 2 of the Punk BitW BR are really awesome.
