See, Brye, you ended up enjoying that show more than myself, haha.

I kind of thought I didn't give enough credit to Christian/Jackson. I know I dig it regardless of whatever snowflakes I put beside it.

best part of the Rumble was when Punk owned poor Zack Ryder in 10 seconds. "You...you have potent...*smashes mic over head*"

Anything from WCW in the early 90's.

ok, maybe not ANYTHING, but there is a good portion. Look for Midnight Express, Rock N'Roll Express, Hollywood Blonds, Dangerous Alliance vs Sting/Rhodes/Steamboat variations, Wargames matches, etc. You'll know who's capable of pumping out the great stuff.

Watch this



That often used phrase "smash mouth wrestling" is what Steiners vs. MVC personifies.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

No Way Out 2005:

Hardcore Holly/Charlie Haas vs René Duprée/Kenzo Suzuki (pre-show) - *1/4
- Yawn, just a generic tag match to warm up the crowd for the rest of the night.

Basham Brothers vs Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio - ***
- Mostly a standard tag match but Eddie and Rey do their very best to make it as entertaining as possible. A pretty cool finish too which further leads to the awesome Eddie/Rey feud that goes from friendly competition to bitterness.

Heidenreich vs Booker T - *1/2
- Just because Undertaker carried Heidenreich into something enjoyable, doesn't mean anyone can. As such, this is a short, filler match that ends in a DQ and has no redeeming qualities. Boring.

Funaki vs Spike Dudley vs Shannon Moore vs Paul London vs Akio vs Chavo Guerrero - ***
- Some nice cruiserweight action involving some pretty good wrestlers. Paul London is definitely the star here even if Chavo steals the victory since he's there from the start to the end.

Undertaker vs Luther Reigns - **
- Why do they keep pairing Undertaker with terrible workers? He's been so badly wasted since the JBL feud. Thank God for the Orton feud because that really made it a much more memorable year for the Deadman. The match itself is pretty boring and the crowd is dead for most of it. A standard Taker victory against jobber quality opponent that has no business wrestling him on PPV.

John Cena vs Kurt Angle - ***1/2
- These guys have shown pretty good chemistry in their past matches. Here they wrestle in Angle's hometown, Pittsburgh, and as such, there's a bit of a mixed crowd and Cena gets his first taste of a non-100% positive reaction since his face turn. Now onto the match, they do some pretty good wrestling and Cena does a good job selling the ankle injury when Angle locks the Ankle Lock in for about a minute. After a ref bump and a confident Angle, Cena quickly gives him an FU and heads towards superstardom as a main eventer. I liked the fact that after the Eddie Guerrero backstage segment, Cena appears a lot more serious and intense in here. He doesn't smile like a goof or suck up to the crowd, he's all business. Also worth noting is the brief "HBK" chants after the minor ref bump as the crowd expected Shawn Michaels to get his revenge after the Royal Rumble. The match is a good one but not better than their No Mercy 03 one.

JBL vs Big Show (Barbed Wire Steel Cage) - ***1/2
- A rare stipulation for the main event here and I like it. The match itself is pretty good with JBL having pretty much all odds stacked against him truly with no way out. I like the way they sell how brutal the stipulation is and Big Show does a great job as the giant favorite to win. The chokeslam through the ring was a massive spot and the ending is one of the most creative I've seen. A very enjoyable match that doesn't last that long for a main event. Having seen all the lead-up episodes, I can now understand Batista's appearance in the end better. Very good build-up towards WM21, I must say.

Overall: *** out of ***** (A very decent PPV. There's some truly bad stuff but the majority of the card ranges from average to very good. Not much to say otherwise and I also liked that little room for Batista they had. Luxury to just relax on the couch all alone in that backstage room with food and drinks watching the show. I guess that's why I need a DVD collection in the future! Now the Road to Wrestlemania 21 is on!)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Your review compared to mine made that PPV look loads better, haha. I crapped all over it.

Undertaker having to work with "I'll only throw punches" Luther Reigns = kill me.

Ha, I actually expected only the two main event matches to deliver but the cruiserweight and tag title matches were not bad either. And I love the main event due to its uniqueness. At last a Smackdown PPV that managed to deliver!

But yeah, Taker/Reigns was a complete waste and terrible.

EDIT: Just read what you wrote about it. C'mon, you give the main event far too little credit!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Eh. I didn't mind it. Also didn't think it was anything special of the sort. I probably could have went ** on it since I gave Taker/JBL Last Ride that same rating. Both matches are pretty identical. Nothing noteworthy and all you remember are the spots at the end.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Got the sudden urge to watch Bryan vs. Sheamus 2/3 falls from Extreme Rules again.

I liked it a lot more this time. I thought it was great then but that day it was on I was thinking a lot more about what would happen in the Cena/Lesnar match and wasn't totally into it. Watching it on it's own now has allowed me to enjoy it fully.

Such a fantastic match. I'd probably give it 4 and 1/2 stars. The intensity is there throughout the entire match and each fall is great. Excellent performance by both guys.

Christian takes a couple nasty clothesline in that match too. Made Zeke look awesome.

That caught me so off guard. Kool Aid Man Henry owned in his part too. I couldn't believe Truth eliminated him and Show though.
