Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Christian works so well with Zeke and made him look like gold. Christian is really talented in making his opponents look good since he returned in 2009.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'll go to my grave claiming that the single greatest match in the history of ECW, be it WWE's version or the original, is Swagger Vs Christian from 24/02/2009. Ahh, when Swagger actually looked like a future world champ... well, one that wouldn't be shit and then have his career dive bomb .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah Christian tore it up with some many people. Including EZEKIAL JACKSON. Which is insane when you know how much of a steaming pile of shit he is. iirc Christian & Kane vs Regal & Jackson worked a southern style tag leading up towards Rumble 2010. It was nothing short of brilliant to say the least.

I still remember when Tatsu got his ECW Championship shot too. He actually felt credible and legit. Oh that time so was so much fun. I miss ECW.

Forgotten match I'm sure, but Christian also had a darn good match vs Paul Burchill on Superstars in like September of 2009 (it followed the ECW where Ryder won the Battle Royal). SUPER DAVEY SMITH POWERSLAM~!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cody, I completely agree on that Orton/Ted match.

And ECW '09 owned as a whole. Had Christian, Swagger, Tatsu, Ryder, Regal, etc and then guys like Kidd and DH, some Finlay. Shit owned.

I should go watch it right now.

FINLAY. his little matches vs Kidd were quality. Then he worked a very european style (not being Claudio witty there) match vs Smith. Smith also had a lengthy, quality bout vs Christian in 09 too. Add that one to the list.

Anyone remember the Morrison vs Bourne match right before, or right after, the 2009 draft? It was pretty BOSS.

Yeah, I'm DEFINITELY going to run through all of these ECW matches next. Getting excited just talking about them. Although I'll avoid all 5 of those Ricky Ortiz matches. Yikes. One small blemish during late 2008 ECW. and The Boogeyman. Hard to believe that guy was around when Swagger vs Christian tore it up on TV.

I should do ECW after 2006 SD. I'll start with 2008 to see Mark Henry and Finlay tear shit up and go through 2009 to see Christian tear shit up.

I watched the documentary part.. really enjoyed it.

Glad they made an effort to cover his indy/ROH days.. was worried they would just skim over that!

WWE should be slapped for letting the awesome Henry/Hardy match not be on Summerslam 2008. Instead it happened the following ECW.

No Mercy 2008 = IMO too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Always liked the Henry/Hardy match at No Mercy a ton. I think it was the fist time I really saw Henry be pretty athletic with that jumping rope squish-you thing and it boggled my mind. I should like the match even more today. Henry worked Armageddon with Finlay in a Belfast brawl which I have no recollection of at all. There's no reason that shouldn't be an awesome match. Unless the midget's too involved. OK 1 reason.
