Edge vs Chris Benoit (Steel Cage) : Raw 2004

This was supposed to be HHH vs Benoit, but HHH faked an injury and Edge just so happened to piss Benoit off so here we are. Finally, we get a cage match where the face doesn't try to escape and instead sticks around to just beat down Edge all over the ring. Benoit can escape at one point but chooses to just utilize the diving headbutt instead, again staying to torture Edge. Edge gets some pretty good offense, busting Benoit up (over the commercial break nonetheless) , and tries constantly to pussy his way out of the cage throughout the match. Edge is a fringe main eventer on this point who just always gets screwed on his way to breaking through the glass ceiling... That trend continues in this match, as Edge is just about to win, but spears Benoit through the cage door for the win. Awesome ending, and this match plays to the strength of both characters. Looking forward to more of these Raw/SD cages.

*** 1/2

So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I loved when Edge's character was going through that frustration of not getting the World Title match at Taboo Tuesday and how he lashed out at Benoit and Michaels. He was more unpredictable and very on edge and cagey (yes, pun) because of his obsession to get the gold. It made for a good build to him winning MITB at WrestleMania the next year.

Solid review and make sure you watch that Rock/HHH Cage Match I posted a link for your list.

TV Cage Matches >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> PPV Cage matches, ESPECIALLY this day and age. Something about them only having like, 10 minutes on TV for a cage match that makes them soo much better than 99% of the lengthy ones we get on PPV.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Completely agree that TV cage matches are better. Although I thoroughly enjoy Edge/Hardy.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Was it the Sheamus vs Cena cage match where the Nexus interfered and the ref on the outside threw the key into the audience?

Love that spot!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^Yeah.

Upon looking for random early - mid WWE matches to watch atm, I stumbled upon reading about a match on the 8/10/04 edition of Smackdown. It was John Cena, Rob Van Dam, & Charlie Haas vs Booker T, Rene Dupree, & Luther Reigns in a "Summer Games Relay" match. Ok. I usually remember 99% of what I see with wrestling, but I have to ask does anyone remember what the hell that is? Can't find a video to watch it either. Don't know why, but I have to see it now.

Maybe I should go and find all of these forgotten, random gimmicks for fun.

I watched this episode about a week ago or two ago. A quick google search brought me this:

"The rules here are simple. The "Summer Games Relay" is a six-man tag, sort of. The match starts with a member of each team in the ring with a five-minute time period. If a pinfall or submission doesn't happen, then the team that won a coin toss would get "the relay" and then switch to another team member. If there's not a decision by the end of the 'relay', the other team sends in the first member, and the rotation continues."

The match itself is nothing worth watching, just like the Smackdown midcard tends to be in 2004.

Also random: I am watching the 18 October 04 episode of Raw right now and I just looked at today's date and realized that it's exactly 8 years since that day. Unintentional coincidence!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cheers for the info. Sounds stupid. Wonder if I watched it back then. Probably. I was hyped going into Summerslam '04.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not going to reveal what the match is but.... I just watched a STRONG candidate to top my list. The execution coupled with wonderful story and character developments, and the sheer brutality alone makes this OLD SCHOOL (subtle hint) cage match one of the best matches of it's era. Also watched a few more recent matches that I thought were all awesome as well... List might be up tomorrow depending on how fast I blow through all of these matches that I'm watching lately.....End of this weekend at the latest. I find it mindblowing how the cage match is probably the WWE's most used gimmick match, but it doesn't have that STANDOUT OMG CLASSIC that say.... Every other match type has (HIAC BB 97, WX X/SS 95 Ladder, HHH/Foley SF, HHH/Jericho LMS,HHH-Rock/Lesnar-Angle Ironman). For instance, I can name about 4 ladder matches(excluding MITB and TLC's) and 6 HIAC's that are better than the best cage match IMO, even though the cage has been used way more and for much longer.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's the most frequent like you said. That alone could be a sole fact behind why it doesn't have the power that some rarer gimmick matches do.

Watched Main Event. Miz vs Kofi got 15:28 to work with. Longest match on the program so far, yet, they didn't do much to make me care. Wasn't surprised. I liked the emphasis and the callback for the insane Trouble In Paradise on RAW. That was a nice touch. Rest of the match...eh. Felt like the same 'ol stuff we've seen them give us. Beyond done caring about Kofi ring and character wise. Miz isn't doing much in the ring for me at all this year too. At least Miz's promos were good. That's always been his strong side. Can't say the same for Kofi's post-match one. Generic face blah blah blah.
