Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The SD with HHH/Punk and HBK/Rey also had another solid match:

Triple H Vs CM Punk - WWE Smackdown 29/01/2010

They go back and forth in the beginning, with HHH doing a little better than Punk, until the SES on the outside are enough to distract the Game for Punk to take control.

This turns out ot be a pretty good competitive match between the two men. Punk gets some awesome looking kicks in on HHH, and HHH does a great job of being the babyface while also living up to the name of cerebral assassin. Things get even better towards the end, shame it had to end in a DQ, but the SES did a nice job on the outside saving Punk on a couple of occasions.

I think this may have been a little better than what I remembered it, but I don't remember exactly what I thought of it back when i first saw it .

Aftermath is cool too, with Punk elbowing the fuck out of HHH to try and shave his head before HBK comes out for the save, and teases superkicking Serena.

Drew McIntyre Vs John Morrison - WWE Smackdown 29/01/2010

This one is No DQ or No Holds Barred or something like that. Basically to prevent Drew from getting himself DQ'd or positioning Morrison to get DQ'd.

Hey, a decent match! About time they had one . Drew controlling a lot of the match and beating the shit out of Morrison is the main highlight (not because I hate Morrison, but because Drew being a vicious bastard is pretty great to watch), and Morrison's offence, like Mysterio's, is great when it comes to hope spots and comebacks.

DDT on the IC belt is awesome, but the pin is about as gay as it gets in a "sport" where two guys half naked touch each other.

Really enjoyed this one, and was a nice end (I hope its the end anyway lol) to their feud over the IC title. Plenty of HATE~!, some nice little spots, and a good finish (with a gay pin. GAY~!).

Rey Mysterio Vs Shawn Michaels - WWE Smackdown 29/01/2010

Man, can this show get any more awesome? HHH/Punk, Drew/JoMo and now THIS?

I still remember seeing this SD for the first time, and how excited I was for it. Firstly, its HBK Vs Mysterio, and the second time its ever happened. Secondly, its Undertaker's RR opponent Vs Undertaker's WM opponent, and for some reason that interests me even more than it simply being Rey vs Shawn lol.

Poor little Rey ends up getting a red chest early on thanks to Shawn chopping the shit out of it lol. Really awesome sequence just before the first commercial break with both guys teasing their finishers and then both ending up on the floor. Aside from Rey getting the worse end of some chops, its all been even so far, so it was a nice way to go to commercial break as both guys are babyfaces after all.

Really weird to see Rey controlling a match and going after a body part (Shawn's leg). Hell, I find it weird to see either of these men actually controlling a match these days since they are uber babyfaces, and both are way better at doing hope spots and comebacks than anything else. That being said, there sure as hell isn't anything even close to being bad in the match. Rey does a pretty good job for the short time he has control, and Shawn does even better. Nice to see him get a little revenge on Rey by injuring his leg and going after it, and that modified figure four type move looked AWESOME.

Finishing stretch, as you would expect with these two guys, is really fun, and of course seeing the springboard into a superkick is always awesome. Match ends with Batista spearing HBK.

Match is... well, not as good as I first thought . Was definitely my TV MOTY at the time, and thinking about it, I don't recall anything else happening on TV that I would have rated the same as this, so technically it was still my TV MOTY until now lol (gave it ***3/4 first time around). However, watching it again, I saw the match to be nothing THAT special. It was two babyfaces having a match without a feud or a story, trading control segments and then going into a big finishing stretch. It was good, it was fun to watch, but it was missing something big that would have helped make it a great match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

a GAY pin?!

you recall their very first singles match they had about 10 days or so prior to TLC 2009? It sticks out as their overall best for me. Recall a brutal spot when Drew has some metal bars underneath the ring exposed and he drives Morrison's face directly into them via grabbing tights + pulling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yes, gay pin. There is a picture or a gif floating around of it but I cba to find it .

I don't remember any of their matches specifically before that one, I just know I really didn't like most of them. And then they just kept having them. Over and over and over again. And none of them were particularly good, with some really bad ones thrown in too lol.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wow extremely quick answers. thanks guys.

Absolutely loved the modified figure 4 too! My favorite moment must be when rey counters the SCM with a Spinning wheel kick!! I was totally expecting a dodge or something, and bam kick in the face (Michaels sells that better than ziggler) and he is in 619 position. Perfect.

The 2005 match was a hell more quicker but i was less involved in it i guess ( i prefered the 2010 one)


I have to check that No dq match, totally forgot it was on the same show. From that show i remember a jericho/r truth 5 minutes match not really interesting but with a good reversal to the Walls( not the usual one with jericho being ejeceted by the ultrastrenght of the legs!!)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wow, didn't know Triple H & Punk had a one on one match before NoC.

And when I'm finished with watching all the WWE years I'm planning to (1997-WM25), where should I go next? I've been thinking about Nitro from 96-00 and as much of the original ECW as possible (93-until the end). After that, I think I'll also check out some TNA stuff from the past (I really need to start following it for something present since I'm in no rush to ever watch another present day Raw or Smackdown). By the time I'm there, it'll probably be the summer of 2014, though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

But C2D , are you trying to tell me you wouldn't wanna relive the summer of punk and subsequent 365 plus reign of one of the greatest of all time (in your opinion ) in CM Punk ? I am SHOCKED. In all honesty though, your opinion of Punk's "pipe-bomb" worked shoot and subsequent MITB match against Cena ?





"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

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watch early 90s WCW. Great wrestling from some of the best in-ring talent ever - Steamboat, Rude, Vader, Rhodes (that would be Dustin), Eaton, Austin, etc. So many quality matches. Cal or I can post a list of the best stuff (from the WCW poll) if you want. The Dangerous Alliance was killing it in '92.


Much gratitude to
CHAMPviaDQ

Documentary is fun but short (about 57 minutes).

I've already seen that, though. (not the title reign but I willingly skip Raw/SD nowadays and have for like 6 months now) This little 'project' I got going on is me going through stuff that I missed out on when they took place originally.

As for my take on the Summer of Punk. Even though I don't like the guy, he was on a roll during that one month and I give him that. The shoot promo was awesome, the contract signing was awesome save for his comments about "Dwayne" being a phony, the segments before MITB were great and MITB itself is a memorable PPV. And yes, the Cena/Punk match that night is also amazing. I don't have it at 5* as I originally did since a rewatch wasn't as great but I'm not gonna downrate it just because it's Punk or whatever. But the fact it is the root of Punk's snoozefest of a run in the past year makes the experience not as pleasant whenever I'll watch the match in the future. The summer itself got boring and just a disappointment once Kevin "ATV" Nash got involved, though. From then on, I started caring less and less about Punk, much like I did before that summer.

@Clique: I'll think about that too but I'm mainly thinking about Nitro during the NWO/cruiserweights era. I also wanna go through Benoit's entire career and later do a huge top 100 matches list on him, so therefore Nitro 96-00 first makes sense. (will start off by doing a top 50 for his WWE run but I'll expand since I'm the ultimate Benoit mark in here!)
