^Eddie said in his book that he and RVD had a classic in Alaska. Sounds pretty good.

Yeah bad example. Cena basically had to win. I just hate the ending, not so much the bookings fault. Maybe the same vein as Nash/Goldberg?

Yeah, better example I'd say. Now Nash/Golberg was a poor booking decision. Followed by an even worse one (aka finger poke of doom)

K1ngOfK1ngs you remember BROCK's in ring promo the Smackdown before NWO '04 vs Eddie? I know you were marking over his ring work, but damn if that's not his best segment then idk what is. GOLD. BROCK LEVEL GOLD.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

In Jericho's book he talks about how him and Rock would wrestle awesome matches back to back to back in front of great crowds in Japan. Would be cool to see these.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Flair claims his matches vs Steamboat that weren't televised were even better than all of their classics that were.

that's the biggest example I can note.

Do you think there was ever a **** 3/4 - ***** match to take place on a House Show ? Like one night two guys just went out there and perfected EVERYTHING for 30 minutes. It'd be interesting to see for sure.

PS: Does anybody have tabs on that guy who was/is selling the 20 disc Brock comp ? I'd be interested in copping that for sure. I NEED all of his televised matches and maybe even a few more, that's the nature of my obsession over DA BROCKTAGON. TRIPS-BORK II = JIZZZZZZZ
Platt's the guy with the Lesnar comp .

I'd love for a best of house show dvd. Mainly for some of the stuff in late 97/early 98 with HBK and Undertaker. As far as I know they NEVER had a singles match at a house show or even TV (has any major feud ever done that???), but they did have plenty of tag matches (got a couple already on disc).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Your guys least favorite match of all time? Maybe not the worst match or one that's generally viewed as bad, but one you just can't stand.

I can't even begin to fathom how good those matches must have been if true.

Take it for what it's worth but Meltzer gave one of those Flair/Steamboat house show matches from 1989 six stars.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

There are 2 Flair/Steamboat matches from '89 house shows available to watch online and whatnot. Don't think either is as good as the 3 PPV matches, but both are still really good and in the ****+ range.

Least favourite match? Might be Eddie/Rey from WM 21. Hate it with an absolute passion. Rey is constantly fucking around with his mask. Neither seem to be connecting like they normally do. Nothing looks good. Just a horrible match from 2 guys who usually have such amazing chemistry.

I think Trips/Kozlov might be up there for me. I really can't stand that match.
