Cena/Umaga and Jericho/HHH are just incredibly hard to decide between. I think Jericho/HHH uses the gimmick better, i.e HHH dissecting the ribs to make it harder for Jericho to stand, the way they generally just beat the shit out of each other and don't have an abundance of stoppages in the match for the ref to count, but rather utilise a few spots where both men are down and forced to get to their feet. Felt that unlike a lot of WWE Last Man Standing matches, both men just wanted to fight each other every second of the match, rather than endless spots to break up the action: feels like a legit fight and HHH resorting to a dissection of the limbs to incapacitate Jericho without having to resort to gimmick weapons always impresses me. Might also have the best finish ever to a WWE LMS match, HHH getting up only to collapse right back down the minute the 10 count is made is just perfect: you can feel every Jericho fans' soul tear apart as this prick somehow gets to his feet for 1 second to win the match.

Cena/Umaga however is more of a war and probably a better story driven match, between Cena's supreme selling and the overall story of Umaga constantly having an answer to Cena's offence its incredibly easy to just get caught up in the story of the match and see how Cena can make a comeback. Its more relient on weapons than Jericho/HHH but its a rare match where the weapons do add to the beating Cena takes and serve as an escape route to weaken Umaga. Finish is stupid in terms of exection, but I do respect the thought process behind it and its certainly a fitting way to end a bloody and brutal war and answer the question of how do you beat Umaga?

Cena/Edge I don't really like. Feels like an endless array of big spot after big spot and just lacks the hate and overall 'war' aspect that makes Cena/Umaga and HHH/Jericho stand apart. I'm not that surprised though, Edge is pretty notorious for having umpteen spots in his big gimmick matches so I'm not sure why I go into the match expecting anything else: still as a stand alone prop war its impressive, but I don't think it captures the true essence of a rivalry like Cena/Umaga and HHH/Jericho did.

Show/Taker, Flair/HHH and HHH/Orton are all damn good however. HHH/Orton might be HHH's best performance as a babyface in his entire career, and I'm still shocked by how good he actually is in it.

I wish I had that much space in my computer to have entire years downloaded. Then I would have everything from 97-08 but no, I have to delete whatever I've finished watching to make room for other years.

Speaking of which, I'm almost finished with downloading Smackdown 2006. Almost at 94% and SD 05 is at 88% (going a bit slow atm, though).

Back up to DVD? That's what I do lol. Got 97, 98, 99 Raws and 99, 00, 01, 02 and 03 SD's on disc. Saves PC space and I have access to them when I want.

I do indeed sell copies of them . They are nothing more than avi/mpeg (I think SD 03 is mpeg) on discs, though I do have many other years on normal video dvd discs with usually one ep per disc (2 is they were 1 hour shows).

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS ! More :hhh talk!


vs Orton I : ** 3/4
vs Umaga : ** 1/2
vs Orton II : **** 1/4

The first Orton match is an awesome paced bout, but due to the fact that they would be wrestling later in the night, I think both Trips and Orton decided not to leave it all out there. One of the BETTER Trips-Orton bouts out there and again, a really nice fast pace. Trips catching Orton instead of decisively beating him made the segment that much better as it kicked off the theme of survival.

The Umaga match is GREAT, but it's extremely short at about 6 minutes. Umaga DESTROYS Triple H's ribs and just works it over until Hunter hits one of the most beautifully executed Pedigree's I have ever seen for the win. My favourite ** 1/2 match ever by far

The Last Man Standing match is INCREDIBLE. These two just went out there and tore the house down for 20 minutes straight. It was one of those LMS's with a ton of 10 counts, and both men play their roles very well, with Trips being the valiant babyface who is giving his last breath to survive the night, and Orton being the gutsy heel trying to survive Trips's last array of offense. 4th best LMS from where I stand for sure, and one of the best matches in Orton's career. The best singles match that Orton-Trips have had BY FAR (Next best is RR 05 which I have at *** 1/2).

(on a side note) Who in their right fucking mind came up with the idea to have Trips-Orton main event Wrestlemania in a standard wrestling match with no stipulation ? THIS was their match history before the WM XXV encounter :

UNF 04 : ** 1/2
RR 05 : *** 1/2
NM 07 : ** 3/4
NM 07 (LMS): **** 1/4
JD 08 (Cage): ***
ONS 08(LMS): ** 1/2

Should have been Cena-Orton and Edge-HHH ..... But NOOOOOOOOOOO, we get a terrible Wrestlemania main event between two people who have historically sub-par main event chemistry with one another over the prior 5 years.

Only HHH/Orton matches worth watching at the NM 07 LMS and the Raw 09 LMS (it was in 09, right?).

Didn't HBK and Jericho have a LMS match on Raw at some point too btw?
