What was so bad with Trips/Kozlov? I thought it was a pretty decent wrestling match. Then again, I have only seen it once.
It a fucking piece of shit, that's what's bad about it. I've seen it once and have absolutely zero desire to ever watch it again. Horrible, horrible
match. Taker had to job to him on SD but poor Hunter had the unfortunate task of working a fucking PPV match with him. I don't think it's a surprise that his unfathomable push quickly died down after this lol. Speaking of Survivor Series though...
HBK vs. HHH vs. Cena, Survior Series 09 - ****1/2
and possibly ****3/4
if I'm feeling generous. I absolutely fucking love this thing. Probably the best first 15 seconds to a match in history with that SCM to Hunter. The place just goes mental after that lol. Then we get effectively 3 mini matches in 1 with HBK vs. Cena, HHH vs. Cena and then HBK vs. HHH which btw, fuck them for not giving us a HBK vs. HHH match before Shawn retired. Yes I'm still butthurt about that, haha. The spot where Shawn superkicks Cena and then superkicks Hunter right on top of him into an unintentional pin is legit nuts. Awesome spot that had me on the edge of my seat even now. Yeah I'm probably overrating it but I don't care. I'm a huge mark for all 3 guys and they completely tore shit up in that match. Brilliant stuff.
JBL vs. Eddie, Judgment Day 04
- I don't even know how to star this thing tbh. Jesus Christ that's probably the craziest thing I've ever seen in a WWE ring in my life. I hadn't watched this since it happened but holy fucking Christ Eddie Guerrero. I dare anybody to say this shit is fake after watching that. I'm just completely stumped. Call it passion, call it craziness, call it whatever the hell you want but you have to respect the hell of that man for battling through that and he just kept coming and coming. The match itself was great up until that point. Probably hovering around ****
but then that chair shot happened and I don't really know how to rate it after that because I was sitting there almost in shock tbh. Just an utterly mad ending to a match and once again, Eddie deserves a freaking medal to still be standing after that thing. Definitely the worst I've ever seen somebody bleed. The DVD also includes the extra of JBL chucking Mexicans back over the border which is always
. Crazy stuff.
Royal Rumble 2008
- I watched this after the DX/Cena triple threat just for the hell of it. It starts when Cena comes out and is just mad. MSG shit their pants when his music hits. WHAT A POP. The faceoff between Cena and Hunter made me mark out like a child. These two just light shit up when they face each other and those fans were eating it up. If anybody wants a good laugh check out the guy sitting on the right at ringside with the RKO hoodie and a title belt. Dude was absolutely hilarious throughout the whole match. He was marking for everything and completely lost his shit when it came down to the end.
I had to go back and watch it again solely so I could focus on him and his reactions lol. I personally love the ending to this thing and it just has that big time feel to it with everybody going mental. What an atmosphere.
