Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Segunda Caida states it better than I ever could, you wouldn't believe how much I was marking out during that match.

I for Matt Hardy (A Matt Hardy guy since '99):

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

For YEARS I always thought Randy Orton and Matt Hardy were underrated as workers especially Orton in 04-06 and Hardy in 06-07. I'm glad more people are coming around to appreciating their abilities back then.

The Hardy/Finlay match is a beauty as are most Finlay matches in that period. Back then I even marked for Finlay's matches with Lashley. I have not watched any of those matches since they aired but my dad and I really enjoyed seeing those two go at it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think Cena has the most impressive carry-job of Lashley at GAB 2007, but no-one managed to consistently carry Lashley and hide his weaknesses as well as Finlay did on a semi regular basis.

Finlay can be trusted to work against anyone and everyone, guy just has his act down to a tee. His entire 2006 run is my candidate for the best year a wrestler's had since 2000. Cena for most of 2007 comes close, Danielson in 2006 as ROH Champ was the only person able to come close to matching Finlay for consistency and Austin in 01 had some incredible matches and an overall fabulous character performance, but week to week Finlay was just going on a tear. He also has the 3 Benoit matches from 06, the 07 Hardy match and the Undertaker match from Smackdown Cal really loved as top tier matches as well as his general consistent output of good-very good TV matches.

Finlay's made one minute squashes that were used to get Hornswoggle over fun. He can do no wrong.

Would have given Benoit/Finlay MOTY in '06 if I didn't have Danielson/KENTA at *****. Still fucking love Benoit/Finlay.

This is my favourite section of the forum. Seriously, I'm always going through this thread looking for random matches. Going to check out that Hardy/Finlay match.

I just want to get some opinions, what's the best MITB ladder match? For me, it's SD MITB 2010. Goddamn, I really enjoyed it. One of the few if not probably the only MITB match to have some sort of psychology to it. The whole thing with the Big Show breaking every ladder he stepped on built it up so well for when it was time to bring out that big ass ladder.

I haven't seen it since but hey call me crazy I remember screaming down the place on the forum "5 stars!!" Yeah, probably overrating at the time but from what I recall it was just a beautiful match.

@Segunda, not seeing anything from Finaly and Hardy on 6/22/07

Styles/Joe is very good in its own right, but part of why I like it so much is that I can barely name 10 TNA matches I'd call 'great' due to the style, so any match they do that actually manages to make me not only think of it as good, but a contender for MOTY will always leave me impressed. Same reason I fucking love Storm/Harris Texas Death Match from Sacrifice 2007, although again I'd have a few matches over it as MOTY.

EDIT: Vendetta was on 11/5/05.

Top 10 for the year, WWE/TNA/ROH:

1. Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio, Smackdown 6/23/05
2. Bryan Danielson vs Roderick Strong, Vendetta 11/5/05
3. Chris Benoit vs William Regal, Velocity 7/16/05
4. Batista vs HHH, Vengeance
5. Matt Hardy vs Edge, Unforgiven
6. Ric Flair vs HHH, Taboo Tuesday
7. Samoa Joe vs AJ Styles, Turning Point
8. Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio, Great American Bash
9. John Cena vs JBL, Judgement Day
10. Matt Hardy vs Edge, Summerslam

Ok, I need to check this one out. Was it really that damn good? I'm not a big Roderick Strong fan and quite frankly D-Bryan's in-ring work doesn't impress me like it does most people. I'm not denying the guy's technical abilities but to me that's not all that makes someone a great wrestler. As a matter of fact, knowledge of holds has absolutely nothing to do with being a great wrestler/worker. They're the same thing in my opinion, wrestler and worker. Cause when you're wrestling a match you're basically working.

But yeah, the names you just listed this match sounds like a blow the fucking gasket match. It sounds like a match where it starts of with some chain wrestling for the sake of chain wrestling and then it just fucking blows. It just evolves into nothing but stiff kicks and head dropping and near falls.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I knew it was Pat Patterson.

Haven't seen some of the some on there, and I had no clue Savage and Warrior had a cage match in '91. I think I prefer the SNME Hogan/Bossman to the MSG one. I probably would have had a Bret Hart/Yokozuna and Hogan/Orndorff in there somewhere. Prob replace Eddie/Rey and Eddie/JBL since I've never really loved them.

Did you watch Roddy Piper v Rick Rude? I love match and totally forgot about it up until now. Also just remembered I loved Andre the Giant v Kamala too but I seemed to be alone on that.

Favourite MITB match is from Mania 24. A great lineup and some brilliant spots coupled with that amazing crowd makes it ****1/2 for me which is possibly even a bit harsh.

Going to give Mania 24 a watch as it's probably my second favourite event ever
