Fuck me. Brilliant. Everything I want a wrestling match to be with Regal & Finlay. I don't care about the random finish. ****.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Where is Rikishi (and Too Cool for that matter) on that cover? He played a rather big part in the Attitude era.

Being a main eventer for most of the year 2000, being revelaed as the man that ran down Austin in a huge angle and overall one of the most popular wrestler at that time. Yet he's not on the cover but Jackie is?!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That 04/04/08 Taker/Kane match is all sorts of win. Seeing two 290+ pounders go hold for hold is definitely a treat and IIRC this was the time when Taker' started incorporating a lot more MMA-Based offence - His heel trips, armbars and I believe it was about then that he started using Hell's Gate? And obviously he's famous for his epic strikes. Anyway, it's definitely interesting to see Kane match Taker for a lot of it because it's very rare to see Kane doing that, but seeing him do it so well and so convincingly just backs up my claim that he is one of, if not THE, most versatile worker in WWE this millennium. Also I loved the Old-School thing that they both did fairly early in the match, can't remember that being done but it was a very nice touch.

The way the match eventually breaks down in to an all out slug fest, what you'd expect from these two, is great and most certainly makes sense due to the stalemate between the two with the catch as catch can style of wrestling in the beginning. Yeah the ending sucks a little bit, but it made sense. I would love to have seen a full match between the two following this formula, with a decisive winner. But none the less, it definitely is entertaining. Good find

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Saw it once back when it aired. Was pretty lethargic during the early part of 2008 so it's no surprise that I dismissed it. I remembered Undertaker vs Festus the next week much more vividly

Watched this and hold it as high as you do. Wonderfully violent with some stiff strikes, unique touches in the mat wrestling (Finlay stamping on Regal's hand just because he can) and both men taking some fine bumps (Finlay getting dropkicked to the floor only to then drop Regal throat first on the guardrail was really bossy). They're as slick and violent as ever and just have this seamless chemistry to work an absurd amount of different matches.

You seen their Uncensored '96 match? Top 5 match in WCW history imo and their absolute best match together. Might just be better than the best Benoit/Regal match and just below Benoit/Finlay Judgement Day 06 in terms of best matches between all three.

Their parking lot brawl is also ridiculously violent for the short time it gets. Made my top 100 WCW matches list alongside the Uncensored match. Feels like something you'd see on Memphis/Mid South TV circa 1985.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I watched ALL of those matches tonight. Unreal. I haven't watched any matches since those since I know my level of marking out right now can't exceed the level that the Finlay/Regal bouts hit. Parking Lot Brawl is so nuts. It's probably the most violent match from WCW. At least off the top of my head. Bischoff freaking out about how violent it was and having the camera slowly but surely pan further away as it escalated. Laugh worthy, but was true to form since that match was brutal as holy hell.

First time for the Uncensored match tonight. Worth the wait. Holy crap that might be my favorite WCW match. Which says a whole hell of a lot. I'd put it at the full 5 snowflakes if it had a stronger finish. Or a clean one at that.

Btw, as if the rep comment wasn't enough of an answer: Midnight Express vs Fabulous Ones was I about had the ultimate mark out cream session the moment the Express began their face in peril segment. Then the lead to the second FIP segment was even BETTER. Eaton sidestepping Fulton only to see him launch into the waiting arms of Lane to be driven directly into the guardrail. Epic.
