Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Have both Edge/Benoit and Jericho/Benjamin at ****. Is this the best 1-2 punch to open up a PPV ever ? I'm not sure I can think of another PPV where we start off with 2 consecutive **** matches TBH. I LOVED the Hogan tag when I first saw it ... But YEAH ... It's shit (although it was a huge deal at the time). DAT TISTA-TRIPS match is severely underrated IMO, I fucking love that match and would give it *** 3/4.

AHHHH, No Mercy 2005... What an underappreciated show. The 3 biggest matches on the card are all great, with REY-JBL being fun as they always are with a hilarious storyline behind it (watch the SD promo where JBL comes out with a poncho and a sombrero) , Taker-Ortons being a classic and the second best casket match ever (MOTN) , with the main event being a complete carry job with Eddie getting a **** match out of big Dave with how FUCKING awesome he was. I don't like to speculate much, but I'm willing to bet we would have gotten a Taker-like older Eddie, basically meaning that his matches would SOMEHOW have gotten better even after all of these years, especially since his character rocked at this point and his new theme music was SEX and all that jazz.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That handicap casket match is a boring garbage bout. No way it can be slapped with the term "classic" on it. Only match that Taker and Orton had that wasn't worth seeing.

The fatal four way for the United States Championship from that PPV is the real under-appreciated match. It's AWESOME.

Btw, I would call the Backlash '05 4 star matches the best 1-2 punch to open up a PPV only if the Tag Team Turmoil wasn't inbetween them, haha. Not saying this is the best opening & second match combo, but it's the first off the top of my head: Judgment Day 2006. London & Kendrick vs MNM and Benoit vs Finlay. That at least takes the cake momentarily.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah I'm just not on my game today... Like ... AT ALL. Got back from the gym earlier after a two-a-day and I'm just falling apart, gotta channel my inner :hhh

Don't like the handicap casket match ? Here's my Orton-Taker Series Rankings for 2005

WM XXI : **** 1/4
NM 05 Casket : **** 1/4
ARM 05 HIAC : **** 1/4
SS 05 : ****
SD 05 : ****

Such a BOSS fucking feud. Feud of the year, obviously.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WrestleMania ~ ****1/4
Armageddon ~ ****
Smackdown ~ ****
Summerslam ~ ***1/2
No Mercy ~ **

Casket drags hard for me. I probably would have enjoyed it more if Cowboy wasn't involved. Then again he was taken out for a part of the match. Idk. Just doesn't do it for me. It was my personal favorite feud of that year. But, I was biased since the WWE put my two favorites in a feud vs each other.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just popped in the NWO: The Revolution DVD. Outstanding so far. I'll throw together a nice little review after it finishes. Completely forgot they had made and released it. Picking up 'Brave' on DVD for my daughter and saw the beautiful white logo.

Edit: Whoa, new interview from Vince Russo...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah i quite enjoyed it tbh, wish they would have slightly expanded more on the Stin/Hogan thing though, and the end seemed a bit rushed, could have easily gone for another 30minutes+ IMO, but it was alright.

the GOAT thread is more for you.
I am. #riseabovehate #CeNation

Dickhead HBK is the GOAT. So much win. You just want to smack the guy for being a little bastard lol.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Wrestling needs more DICK (heels). Guys who are just DICKS for the sake of being a DICK.

I loved that Last Man Standing. It gets **** from me. Worked out incredibly well, imo.

Rest is whatever. Oh, but I mark like a little kid for Hurricane & Rosey winning since I'm such a big Gregory Helms fan. I HATE the Hogan tag.
I would have given LMS a bigger rating if it involved more weapon violence. Felt too much like a mat-wrestling match and barely used any weapons which is what LMS matches are supposed to be about. Just didn't live up to its stipulation I thought. But still a very good match just like 99% of whatever Benoit has done.

And on the Hogan tag, I forgot to mention this. HBK makes me laugh with his constant jumping around whenever Hogan's song is playing.

Count me in as a "Cena mark" too. I'm not immune to getting annoyed by him to the point of wanting to see him get his ass kicked but at the end of the day, I'm a big fan and often defend him, character notwithstanding.
