Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm a fan of the Orton/Jericho match except the finish. A solid ***1/2 for me.

Speaking of Armageddon, I'm at the main event of 2004. YAY, 2004 is also over soon, 05 here I come!

(BELOW IS THE 04 REVIEW)

Armageddon 2004:

*Rey Mysterio & RVD vs René Duprée & Kenzo Suzuki - **3/4
- A decent bout and better than their previous match. Although the double 619 was botched badly due to bad positioning.

*Kurt Angle vs "Santa Claus" - 0
- No comments.

*Daniel Puder vs Mike "The Miz" Mizanin - **3/4
- This is pretty much a boxing, unscripted match between the two. Pretty fun to watch and Puder wins by popularity.

*Basham Brothers vs Hardcore Holly & Charlie Haas - *
- Nothing screams random more than the face tag team on this one.

*John Cena vs Jesus - **1/2
- This is more or less a squash match for Cena and he destroys HeySoose for almost ten minutes. I really like this intense Cena. He would be so great if he had this attitude as part of his character. Also the spinning US Title belt is introduced here as well as the "Ruck Fules" t-shirt. As a massive hip-hop fan, I love the spinning belts Cena introduced including the WWE Title. Turntables for the win!

*Dawn Marie vs Miss Jackie - 1/2*
- More entertaining to look out for the struggled attempts at performing some moves correctly than anything else.

*Big Show vs Kurt Angle, Mark Jindrak & Luther Reigns - **1/2
- Nothing really much. Big Show takes on all three in a handicap match and wins following a.... F5!

*Spike Dudley vs Funaki - **3/4
- Not bad but nothing great. This was out of nowhere as Funaki only ever wrestled to get squashed before this sudden push he gets.

*JBL vs Eddie Guerrero vs Undertaker vs Booker T - ***1/2
- Is a standard four way for the most part of the first 10-15 minutes but towards the end after Booker & JBL go through a table, this gets absolutely awesome and exciting to watch. A bunch of finisher exchanges between all four and Heidenreich is the one to interfere in Bradshaw's behalf against the Undertaker. If I didn't know the result beforehand, this would have probably been a bit better. Also wish there had been more exchanges between Eddie and Taker since this is the only time they were opponents. Another thing worth mentioning is the botched powerbomb by JBL on the table and how well he improvised instantly by dropping an elbow on Booker to break the thing. (since some cables got Booker's foot stuck therefore JBL couldn't lift him properly)

Overall: **1/2 out of ***** (A great main event, some alright undercard stuff and some outright duds. This is pretty much a mixed-bag and still, it's one of the better Smackdown PPVs for 2004. Ranking for the whole year will come in a couple of days when I finish watching the final Raw & SD episodes.)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Armageddon 2007 is all around pretty darn good. HBK gets Kennedy to what was his best singles PPV match, Mysterio meshed well with MVP iirc, Orton/Jericho had a really good bout, ECW tag wasn't nearly as bas as you would've figured, Divas was short but refreshing, main event triple threat was fun, and Hardy/HHH had a nice storytelling bout. I even remember Finlay carring Khali to one of his most bearable matches.

So yeah, I'd get it. One of the better all around PPVs of that year.

lol @ Armageddon 2004. I hate that show so much.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I remember Funaki's push very well lol. He wins a battle royale, holds the title for a couple of months then loses and becomes a jobber again. Very strange

I thought we would see the same thing happening (but this time winning the US title) when the Kung Fu Naki gimmick started.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That lasted for about 2 weeks. Then back to jobber town. Turns out MVP got the push instead. I would have prefered Funaki with a kung-fu gimmick...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Funaki was an underrated cat. I was serious about taking him over MVP. MVP sucks.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah. So I walked into my local cex on friday to find that they had received a shit load of classic post 2001 WWE DVD's. Managed to pick up No Mercy 2002, Backlash 2004, Bad Blood 2004, Unforgiven 2004, Survivor Series 2005, No Way Out 2008 and One Night Stand 2008 for just over £20. I stopped watching after SummerSlam 2002 so this was a real treat for me. Going back for more tomorrow.

Watching in date order and currently on Bad Blood 2004. No Mercy 2002 was decent with a good main event and Backlash 2004 was an absolute cracker in general. One thing that I'm really noticing is how much of a star Orton was back then. Fucking hell, the guy actually had passion and an ounce of charisma. Based on his early showings I can see why Vince placed so much faith in him.

I'm not big into the whole snowflakes thing but thought that this was the most appropriate place to drop this story.

Oh, and talking of Funaki, his interview with Al Wilson during No Mercy 2002 had me in stitches!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Get ready for 2005, Choke2Death. There were tons of great feuds and moments (HHH/Batista, Hardy/Edge, Angle/HBK, Orton/Undertaker, Christian's rise, HHH/Flair, ONS, Guerrero/Mysterio matches, MNM, Benoit/Booker T, Hassan). However, there were so many absolutely awful parts of that year as well (Cena's first reign of terror, Chris Masters, Kurt Angle jobbing out, Guerrero/Mysterio storyline, Batista's string of terrible matches, Smackdown midcard/PPVs, death of Cruiserweight division, Hogan, Big Show, weak television).

No Mercy was decent but it had the two stellar matches from Smackdown. Undertaker/Brock & Angle/Benoit vs Edge/Mysterio. Much of the same with Backlash actually. Decent overall show filled with two incredible strong classics.

NWO '08 is a load of fun to watch. I'm sure you'll dig the RAW elmination chamber. It ruled.

none of those were bad (specify the custody part of Eddie/Mysterio only)
