I'm yet to see Shelton/HBK, but this and the street fight with HBK/Edge are the matches of 2005 so far into it. Also liked a few others like Orton/Christian, Orton/HHH, Benoit/Batista and Benoit/Jericho.

And I must have missed the dailymotion link. I remember finding it a while back when searching for their Eddie Guerrero tribute match but my recent search an hour ago only gave me the Gold Rush Tournament match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Other than Michaels/Benjamin I don't think I've seen a single of those matches you just mentioned. Yeah, I gotta at least attempt to watch the best Raw 05 stuff sometime.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah1993 you put Trips/Benoit over HBK/Shelton? I'm asking because I don't remember a single thing about Trips/Benoit and if it's that good, I'm gonna check it out.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

To be fair I don't like Michaels/Shelton THAT much. Pretty good, but kinda gets less good the more I watch it (and I've probably watched it like 5 times by now). It's just a "fun TV match" to me.

You're a HHH mark yeah? DEFINITELY watch that Benoit match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

While I'm a big fan of the HBK/Shelton match, I think some may overrate it due to the awesome finish. Still a great TV match that I don't get tired of watching.

Gonna check out HHH/Benoit when I get a moment.

edit - this match is already awesome.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Jerry Lawler & Dutch Mantell vs Bill Dundee & Buddy Landell, Memphis (3/10/86)



Jesus Christ Dundee was spectacular in this, he put in an Eddie Guerrero 2005 esque character performance 19 years before Eddie mastered it. From the opening bell he's deranged and psychotic and trying to scare Russell before running immediately when he spots Lawler wanting to bloody his injured eye like Dundee did to Lawler in the famous 12/30/85 LLT match between the pair. Dundee also does one of my favourite ever sells off of a punch from Lawler, he just deadweights himself and falls to the floor in such incredibly dramatic fashion like some punk on Knight Rider who's just realised he's hopelessly outmatched against Michael Knight. Why the random Knight Rider reference you ask? FUCK YOU that's why.

Landell manages to top Dundee selling wise off of a punch combo from Lawler and Mantell and his stumbling, punching air and twisting his head 180 degrees after each punch was just amazing. Dundee casually low blowing Lawler and then turning possessed at the sight of his own blood and consequently choking Lawler with the ringside rope as well as grabbbing the table to smash Lawler's head off of just looked so amazingly psychotic and really had you believing Dundee had lost his mind. Loved the comedy spot where the heels messed up and Dundee hit Landell with a chain. Finish was a bit weak but fit with how pissed off of Lawler and Mantell were and Dundee trying to stop the beatdown of a bloodied Landell before finally saying fuck this and walking out capped off a great psychotic/douchebag performance from Dundee.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't quite remember - is that TDM that there's only clips of? Probably not b/c I think that had Bam Bam Bigelow in it, but that TDM I'm talking about looked to be one of the greatest matches of all time if we had the full match. I don't even remember that match you just posted about, but if it was on the DVDVR Memphis set then I've definitely seen it.

PS go find the Dundee/Landel promos and segments. They're incredible.

About to re-watch Michaels/Taker 2010.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The tag I just watched placed #12 on the DVDVR Memphis ballot. Pretty much a Dundee masterclass with the others just working around his character schtick with some great punches, bumps and a rabid crowd to boot.



Think that's the TDM you were on about. Its from 3/24/86.

Will try and track down those segments, truth be told I'll get the Memphis and Mid South sets in the near future, especially once I separate what I'll need for bloody christmas shopping and what I have left over. Seabs can also expect a payment in the not too distant future for a couple of his latest comps.

Looking forward to reading your thoughts in the morning, no pressure but if you come out of it unimpressed only your uncanny Andre the Giant esque hair will save you

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I feel shitty for not remembering anything about that tag 3/10/86 tag match then. Should probably re-watch it.
