Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taboo Tuesday 2004:

Chris Jericho vs Shelton Benjamin - ***1/2
- A great opener with the fans voting Shelton for Jericho's opponent. A great back and forth match with Shelton finally winning the Intercontinental Championship.

Fulfill Your Fantasy - **

Kane vs Snitsky - **
- Pretty boring and lol @ the fake blood Kane is coughing up after the chair spot.

Eugene vs Eric Bischoff - *1/2
- Very short thankfully and this is the start of short-haired Bischoff! And big lol @ Coach wearing that goofy dress.

Chris Benoit/Edge vs La Resistance - **3/4
- Not better than their match in Montreal where La Resistance were cheered for the first time but still decent. This is used more as a prop to put Edge over as a heel (since he's gotten booed pretty bad leading up to this PPV). He walks out on Benoit after the obligatory "REF DIDNT SEE A TAG!!!!" spot but Benoit still fights his way to victory in what becomes a handicap match.

HHH vs Shawn Michaels - ***1/4
- Michaels does an excellent job selling the leg injury which HHH works on the entire match but outside of the end, it was not all that exciting to watch such a slow, one sided match. Much better than the shitty HIAC one they closed their feud with but still, I really wish fans had voted for Benoit since he and HHH always delivered in the ring. Edge further heels it up by costing HBK the title with a spear.

Randy Orton vs Ric Flair - ****
- Surprised this main evented over the title match. But yeah, it's superior in-ring so maybe it was a good decision. Both do a pretty good job in this steel cage match and Orton finally becomes the Legend Killer when he defeats Flair. Despite being face/heel, Orton still hugs Flair in the end and shows his respect after a very good match.

Overall: **1/2 out of ***** (A mixed bag on a whole. Starts off good then gets very boring for an entire hour until the tag match starts picking up where the IC match left off and then the show ends on a pretty good note save for the pillow fight with the diva search final contestants. Speaking of the diva search, thank God it's over at this point! By far the worst part of Raw 2004 along with Eugene hogging the main event spotlight throughout the summer with Benoit the champion playing second-fiddle.)

Check your rep. I don't want this excellent thread ruined so what I believe is answered there and for further discussion, we can take it to PM.

This is a bunch of bullshit. I've cleared it up via PM so maybe you can stop harping on me about my sig now.

Lastly, Lesnar/Angle series:

WM19 - ****
SummerSlam - ****
Ironman - ****1/4

I have most memorised. I save space for them in my brain by forgetting basic things like maths and spallings.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I still like Benoit. omg right? Anyways...

Brock vs Angle WrestleMania 19 ~ ****
Brock vs Angle Summerslam '03 ~ ****1/4

Haven't seen Ironman since it aired so N/A on that match.

I'll follow up on C2D's review and chuck in my two cents:

Taboo Tuesday 2004


1) Intercontinental Championship:
Chris Jericho(c) vs Shelton Benjamin ~ ***


2) WWE Women's Championship - Fulfill Your Fantasy Battle Royal:
Trish Stratus(c) vs Victoria vs Molly Holly vs Jazz vs Gail Kim vs Stacy Keibler vs Nidia ~ DUD


3) Weapon of Choice - Steel Chain Match:
Kane vs Gene Snitsky ~ *1/4


4) Hair vs Hair Match:
Eugene vs Eric Bischoff ~ DUD


5) World Tag Team Championship:
La Resistance(c) vs Chris Benoit & Edge ~ *1/2


6) Lingerie Pillow Fight:
Christy Hemme vs Carmella ~ DUD


7) World Heavyweight Championship:
Triple H(c) vs Shawn Michaels ~ ***1/2


8) Steel Cage Match:
Randy Orton vs Ric Flair ~ ***3/4



Show ends surprisingly well compared to how the majority was. Like how most brand PPVs played out in 2004 it was filled with crap and had a few matches worth seeing.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a fan of the Shelton/Jericho match ever since I heard that Jericho had to call that match on the fly because he found out he was facing Shelton when Shelton's music hit.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You can see Jericho discussing so much with the ref as soon as Shelton was named his opponent.

Their Backlash 2005 match...now that's where it is at.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That Backlash match is really solid.

I liked the TT one too but I haven't watched in ages. Who did WWE expect to be voted in? Batista?

at Shelton beating out Batista in voting as Batista approached huge popularity.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is there a hope that WWE ever books a Triple H vs. Rey Mysterio match? What's Rey Rey doing these days anyway?

It rules, imo. ***3/4.

Hmm, maybe. I wonder if they were only prepared for Batista, Shelton, or Christian. Or maybe even Coach, lolz.

It's too bad Shelton sucks in ROH now. I think he's lazing on the job unlike Haas. Who flat out blows.

Unlikely. HHH is pretty much retired and Rey is working light only teaming with the awful Sin Cara to form a student/teacher bond or some crap I don't care about.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is Rey retiring next year (say, at WM)? Ever since he returned this time he just hasn't seemed himself. Even before teaming with one of the worst all round guys on the roster.

Ah Shelton Benjamin, what could have been. Need to continue my Raw 06 project cos he was on fire at the time. But I still need a new version of the episode that I'm up to because the quality is too bad for me to sit through .
