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.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
