Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I've spent some time watching/re-watching 2000s Michaels stuff. Notably I went through the Flair/Batista/Jericho stuff from 2008, and not a lot of it is something I really liked. Some didn't hold up at all, some was good, and some stuff I'd never seen before did nothing for me (I hated that stretcher match). But holy shit the GAB Michaels/Jericho RULES. Jericho was awesome and his offense looked so much more snug and tight than normal. They pretty much just beat on each other and it's probably more purely violent and nasty than the stip matches they did. Fuck everything else this is their best match.

Interesting you'd say that considering most felt that was their weakest PPV match together or at least more angle than match. I'm going to have to eventually re-watch it myself but I loved pretty much everything Michaels did in '08 with Flair, Batista, and Jericho. HBK even had some strong TV matches with Jeff Hardy and Mr. Kennedy that year.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Surprised it's kind of thought of as the lesser match. I expect it to take a back seat to the ladder match because it's had so many fans since it happened, but people like Judgment Day more? I mean, I liked that one too, but it didn't have the HATE~. It's probably me. If I put the matches in order of how much I liked them people would probably look at me funny.

I should watch some of 2008 Michaels' tv stuff for sure. I only watched the LMS v Jericho from England and didn't like it too much. The Kennedy matches actually interest me because I watched Armageddon 2007 and it was much better than I was expecting. In fact I'll just grab a bunch of random Michaels from 2002-2010 and see if I find any gems or anything. I hear he has oddly good chemistry with Carlito.

Tonight I'm going to watch the DX/Legacy PPV matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yes on the Michaels having chemistry with Carlito and Chris Masters in 2005. I mentioned the Michaels/Carlito match the night after Survivor Series 05 a couple of days ago being a quality TV match. Probably the best singles match for Carlito in WWE. The Masters match from Unforgiven 05 was his best match in the company until he vastly improved in 2010.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

i watched punk's best in the world documentary dvd. it's as good a wrestling doc as i've seen and the special features are clips they cut out of the main movie cuz i guess they didn't fit into the story they were telling. they are worth watching and the one about him fracturing his skull is a must watch especially. 5 stars imo. i haven't checked out the rest of the set, but looking at the matches included i was let down there are no ring of honor matches at all. they really couldn't give roh some money to get a couple matches on there. it would have been nice to have at least one in the set considering the time they spent talking about that portion of his career. it makes the set feel incomplete.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah the Punk DVD was very well put together, felt rushed in some areas but still a quality buy especially if you're a Punk fan.

Triple H vs. Kurt Angle (Royal Rumble 2001) - ***1/4
Triple H vs. Steve Austin (No Way Out 2001) - ****1/2+ (I did not remember HHH going over)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Finally got round to watching the history of the world heavyweight championship doc last night, really interesting and one of my favourite docs I've seen.

Shawn Michaels had a great year in 08, loved everything he did especially from a character perspective, probably his best year in his second run imo

Smackdown 2001 has downloaded

Michaels had a great 2007&2008, some awesome TV matches lodged away some weeks.
