Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm not anti-Ryback at all!

ECW One Night Stand 2005:

Lance Storm vs Chris Jericho - ***1/2
- A pretty good wrestling contest to start this night off. This is something you will barely see for the rest of the night since ECW was more about destruction than mat-wrestling but these guys do just fine in representing the latter here.

Super Crazy vs Tajiri vs Little Guido - ***
- A very short contest between three great cruiserweights. Other than that awesome moonsault from the balcony, I've already forgotten the rest of this match, though.

Rey Mysterio vs Psicosis - ***1/4
- A nice and short fast paced battle between two other cruiserweights. I was sleepy when watching it last night, so I don't have much else to add other than mentioning that perfectly executed hurricanrana that led to the final pin.

Sabu vs Rhyno - ***
- I'm a sucker for matches that rely heavily on spots and this one is just that. Nothing huge but it's Sabu so you can expect him to jump around the ring with steel chairs and going through tables. This also carries on the tradition of short matches throughout the PPV so far.

Chris Benoit vs Eddie Guerrero - ***
- Very underwhelming, I must say. Although that might just be because of my expectations for a match involving two of the greatest wrestlers ever (and in Benoit's case, THE greatest IMO). The speed never picks up and it looks like both men are having an off day here.

Mike Awesome vs Tanaka - ***3/4
- This is nothing more than a spot-fest but I don't know about others, I absolutely love it! So many memorable spots and the crowd is at its best here which says a lot since there's never a silent minute for them. That powerbomb to the table outside the ring had one of the most awkward landings I've seen but these ECW guys are very reckless and no matter what bumps they take, they always continue! Worth noting is the disturbing comments from Joey Styles when Mike Awesome does a suicide dive.

The Dudley Boyz vs Tommy Dreamer/The Sandman - ***1/4
- Match is truly a mess. First it starts off with a bunch of ECW originals interfering then when it gets going, it's all over the place with even more interference, a variety of weapons being used everywhere and an impressive finish with the Dudleyz putting Dreamer through a flaming table. But so what? This is extremely entertaining and a good main event!

Overall: ***1/2 out of ***** (Extremely enjoyable PPV without a single bad match. Just exciting whole way through with an awesome crowd and many memorable moments. Even the segments are awesome from Heyman shooting on the crusaders to Stone Cold's surprise appearance in the end to RVD cutting a real promo where he tells the truth about being given no storylines and having a vocabulary beyond "cool" and "whatever". It's also funny how Kurt Angle is booed here yet they cheer him the next year against Randy Orton. I also can't omit the "Fuck you Smackdown" chants which made me chuckle. Just an overall great night. Lastly, great commentary from Foley and Styles.)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Benoit and Guerrero have an excellent match on a July SmackDown to make up for the underwhelming PPV match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Fun little game for the hell of it- rank the top 15 wrestlers who have been WWE/WHC Champion. Not by reigns, but by overall careers.

1. Ric Flair
2. Rey Mysterio
3. Eddie Guerrero
4. Chris Benoit
5. Randy Savage
6. Steve Austin
7. Bob Backlund
8. Bret Hart
9. Bryan Danielson
10. Sgt. Slaughter
11. Mick Foley
12. Shawn Michaels
13. The Undertaker
14. Christian
15. John Cena

Hart and Danielson feel kinda low but I didn't want to change it. I don't think there's more than a miniscule gap between them and Austin/Backlund. The whole 6-9 could be messed around. Foley/Slaughter and Christian/Cena feel very interchangeable. I was going to do a top 20 but 17-20 were really, really, really hard to think about. I'm pretty sure #16 would be CM Punk. 17-20 could be filled with Henry, Andre, Orton, the Rock, the Big Show or Jericho but the order got my head hurting. Overall it's the kind of list that could fluctuate a hell of a lot.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Shoot, I'll play along with this ;

1. Ric Flair
2. Bret Hart
3. Shawn Michaels
4. Steve Austin
5. Triple H
6. The Undertaker
7. Randy Savage
8. Chris Benoit
9. Rey Mysterio
10. Eddie Guerrero
11. CM Punk
12. John Cena
13. Mick Foley
14. Bob Backlund
15. Chris Jericho

SUCH a fucking hard list to make for me... That was completely off the top of my head and I didn't read a whole lot into it so forgive me if it's REALLY shitty. I'm also probably the only person in history who believes that CM Punk will be top 5 once everything's said and done. If he's my WOTY AGAIN in 2013 as he has been in 2011 and 2012 he'll fall just Under Taker (get it? )





"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

I've always been really partial towards Christian. He had two amazing runs imo, 2005 in terms of character progression (from CLB to CC) and 2009 in terms of ring ability.

Seriously, my top 15... can't say I'm as knowledgeable in rassling as many of you fine folks, but here I go (Note: Not sure if you meant to go based on wrestling specifically through their whole career or their whole body of work combined with their popularity/storylines/relevance, but I'll do two lists, first one with the latter focus, second with former):

1) Hulk Hogan
2) Austin
3) Rock
4) Undertaker
5) Ric Flair
6) HBK
7) HHH
8) Cena
9) Bret Hart
10) Macho Man Randy Savage
11) Mick Foley
12) Batista
13) Edge
14) Orton
15) Lesnar

(Top 15 for wrestling/match quality entertainment-based focus):

1) Bret Hart
2) Chris Benoit
3) Ric Flair
4) HBK
5) Undertaker
6) Austin
7) Chris Jericho
8) Rey Mysterio
9) CM Punk
10) Daniel Bryan
11) Randy Savage
12) Eddie Guerrero
13) Kurt Angle
14) HHH
15) Randy Orton

Off the top of my head for the most part.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The new AE DVD was kinda disappointing. It felt like they missed alot. I understand it's hard to cram it all into one DVD but the DX part was like 25% of the movie while Austin and Rock were briefly introduced. Undertaker and Kane weren't talked about at all.

The DX part was literally talked about for the whole first half of the movie while massive points in the AE weren't brought up at all.

I meant matches/in-ring/'working', yeah. I'm a wrestling nerd - NOTHING ELSE MEANS ANYTHING.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh man giving people titles of biggest marks for wrestlers? And my top 3 favorites of all time were taken? I call this an outrage.

I'll guess I'll take being known as the biggest El Generico & Jushin Liger mark of this thread even though neither are discussed.

Good to see you enjoyed ONS '05, C2D. You even enjoyed some matches more than I did. Mainly Mysterio vs Psicosis which I thought was a tad disappointing with the first half of the match being worked wrong.
