Not everyone can cut those enthralling 20 minute promos like your favorite wrestler can.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The fans chanting "We will, we will ROCK you" to cheer on The Rockers is AWESOME in that RR match .

I'd rather watch a 20 minute promo by THE GAME than sit through 20 minutes of staring at Benoit's ugly, toothless mug.

You can hear the air literally leave the body of the crowd. It's so fantastic. The little things like that. That's what makes stuff grand.
Yeah I covered the Dolph responses in the next post after the tag review, all the comments caught me off guard when the page loaded with my review and I figured it best to answer quickly.

Fully agreed on that comment about the tag and tag wrestling in general. You seen the Rock n Roll Express/Jim Duggan vs Midnight Express/Ernie Ladd 6 man and Midnight Express vs Fantastics 4/26/88 I reviewed a few pages back? Two of the greatest tags in US history and a perfect example of why southern tag formula is one of the greatest wrestling styles.

Gonna watch Rockers/Brainbusters and Rockers/Powers of Pain before the night is over.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

At least HHH can come up with enough material for a 20 minute promo. I doubt Benoit cut 20 minutes worth a promos his entire career.

I agree with that. He just seems so bland and his ring work wouldn't be as memorable had it not been for his overselling.

WWE took a negative and put a positive spin on it. Only added to show how legit, or 4 REAL, Benoit was while gunning to become World Heavyweight Champion.

The crazy thing about how awesome Smackdown circa 2006 is that the show was still on fire even w/o him. Finlay & Regal aided in the Benoit absense. Plus, you know when he returns he give us vs Regal at No Mercy. Picks up right where he left off.
I personally got different feelings on the whole thing but even when it took place originally (I wasn't even into wrestling), I chose not to judge him. So I could have only gotten more friendly as I became a wrestling fan and checked out his phenomenal talent.

And yeah, it just came at the right time. Benoit had just come to Raw after the Rumble victory, he met Henry in his first match, then Henry suffered a real injury so they used it to put him over as him being 4 REAL! Then the week after that, he made Flair tap out.

Also Benoit's absence is not the only blow Smackdown dealt with as Kurt Angle and Randy Orton were drafted away to ECW and Raw, respectively, around the same time. But I guess the show still remained quality since the in-ring talent was great.


EDIT: On Benoit being boring. I don't know about that. He never really got a chance to talk on the mic and when he did, it did sound scripted and all but he was never downright bad. And I'd rather listen to a promo of his than HHH where he rambles for 20 minutes before he actually gets to the point.

Backlash 2000 . Greatest PPV event ever. Except for WM 19. My favourite for sure though.

I remember them having a really good Light-heavyweight Championship match at Backlash 2000. That show was also a stellar PPV overall too. Dean's had some quality work in his career but I can agree that many of his matches lack a focused control segment and sometimes he switches which body part he wants to work on mid-match which in WCW *may* have been excused if you want to argue with him being the "Man of 1000 Holds" and he's just destroying his opponent with hold after hold.

And I wouldn't want to see Benoit cut a 20 minute promo. I also don't want to see HHH cut a 20 minute promo either.


Much gratitude to
