Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Mentioned this match in chat the other day, it's one of the hidden gems from Raw's history imho.

It tells a great story and makes you suspend reality enough to make you believe Taka was going over at certain points.

Dailymotion version was much better quality than Youtube.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I finally watched Cena/Punk from NOC. Really good match with an exciting finishing stretch. I like Cena pulling a page out of Punk's book with the shrug and the suicide dive. Nice spot. Finish seemed to come out of nowhere, though, and felt really flat.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Taka-Hunter is THE shining example of Hunter being fucking amazing and going through a top 5 in ring prime EVER. Sure, the match is only like a *** 1/4 match from where I sit, but the fact that Hunter bumped around and made you believe (even for a split second) that Taka could win the title is a truly special performance. Hunter was wrestling great TV matches on a week to week basis in that time period anyways, but this match for some reason or another sticks out.

Trips-Shelton I is one of the best example of Trips "putting somebody over" . The fact that Hunter couldn't be Shelton for months upon months really boosted Shelton's stock through the roof, and the fact that they worked a damn near CLASSIC TV match might have something to do with it as well. Shelton is boss and Trips is da G.O.A.T

...Hey, if Rock/Austin marks can say dumb things in the GOAT forum, can't I say smart things here ? :hhh

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I need to watch Trips/Shelton again. I remember at the time I was thinking, "WTF, Shelton just beat The Game? Maybe this guy is for real." PUTTING SOMEONE OVER.

Never seen Trips/Taka but it sounds amazing

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Never really brought into Shelton tbh. The first win was a roll-up, and then he head a win or 2 by count out/DQ, and then they didn't face after that for a long while. No doubt he gave Shelton a rub though and some attention, but Benjamin was never going anywhere with just one 1-2-3 school boy win over HHH. The first match between them was an excellent TV match, and I have it at ***3/4. TBH though, I was more excited with him after the HBK gold rush match. That's the point where I saw him becoming something great in the future.

Of course, Benjamin was probably never going to be a star anyway. He lacked personality, mic skills, and a lot of the general requirements for being "The Next Big Thing" or even a top guy. It's almost like God just said "Fuck this, just make this guy an amazing wrestler and forget about all his other qualities". I could've seen him getting a small stint as WHC years down the line at best imo and then being pushed back down the card, similar to Miz.

I'm watching you...

That match! Just saw it, very fun. Nice ending, Hunico's becoming one of my favorites.

Also thanks for posting that match Brye, added it too my watch later list. I remember the big spot in that match but not the entire match. Will check it out soon enough.


You know you remember this.
