Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

TBH I thought they'd leave off Rock/Cena from the PPV matches set to try and drive sales of the Rock/Cena feud set. Would have been nice to leave it off too, that way they wouldn't have completely killed the word "best" any more than they already do .

WWE should have left off Undertaker/HHH and kept it for the 20-0 DVD sales too while we are at it.

:hhh

Maybe it was a mini hiatus or maybe as you said this was one of the first prominent matches he'd been in since '89, here's the match anyways:

Steamboat/Rhodes vs Arn/Zbyszko : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4b...2#.UKjTaoYybk8

Dustin Rhodes vs Vader (Saturday Night 11/21/92) : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x97...2#.UKjUd4Yybk8

Dustin Rhodes vs Vader (COTC XXIX 11/16/94) : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3a...2#.UKjUpoYybk8

Had the '94 match as my #30 in WCW history, but truth be told it would be closer to top 10 these days having rewatched it. Just an amazing underdog babyface performance from Rhodes complimented by Vader delivering as the ruthless monster, but with the added benefit of Rhodes being big enough to hurt Vader and them teasing and building to that moment in beautiful fashion.

Assuming I'm not confusing it with another match they had, Malenko/Ultimo really surprised me and ended up making my final list which did shock me considering I don't think much of either guy as a worker. Having just checked it made my #85. Think there were other matches worked closer to my preferred style which is why I kept it that low, because its certainly a good match but given what WCW was putting out from 89-94 in particular most of my list was dominated by those years and the endless tags and singles matches of absolute quality.

Speaking of further underrated tags, Faces of Fear vs Jericho and Eddie from Nitro 2/24/97 is another gem:

Yeah1993 brought it up. Totally forgot about Steamboat's second stint with WWF in the very early 90's. One of those "if you blink, you'll miss it" type affairs. He was scheduled to work at Survivor Series '91, but by the time the event rolled around he was already out. So he showed up in WCW again swiftly.

I'll hit up all those matches tomorrow. Along with the Midnight Express 6 man that I haven't gotten around to. I blame all the mess of WCW goodness I find on dailymotion through recommendation lists.

Ultimo vs Malenko had a few, or maybe a handful, of matches in WCW around the late '96 - early '97 time. That's probably the right match. Especially if the date is next to it on your list. It made it nonetheless. That's

YES. I own that Nitro on DVD so I'm well aware of the awesome presence of the tag. Reminds me of why I enjoyed Faces of Fear as a kid. Especially Haku/Meng. On a WWF MSG show in the 90's there was a Haku vs Davey Smith match that OWNED. Seems to be one of the most noteworthy Haku matches off the top of my head. Plus he had a fun Hogan encounter that's on Hogan's Unreleased Matches set. I liked his style.

Tbh, Cal hates Rock so you can't really take his opinion seriously when it come to Rock. You're very biased.

Same can be said for Choke2Death against Punk. It goes both ways.

I give credit when it's due.

For instance, 27/6/2011 promo, SummerSlam contract signing, Over the Limit this year and MITB last year. But yeah, I'm a little bit biased and still, I try to be honest as often as possible.

------------------

That aside, I'm about to watch Judgment Day 05 now. Any thoughts? (And Eddie's heel turn has been AWESOME so far!)
