Those are some srs ratings... mine are SRS!!!11111 though...

Rock/Austin:
WM17- *****
WM19- ****1/2

Taker/HBK:
WM25- *****
WM26- ****1/2

Taker/HHH:
WM17: ****
WM27- ***1/2
WM28- ****

I've said all I've had to say on Taker/HHH's matches among many threads in the past year, but if you loved the WM27 match, I can see why you'd love the WM28 match. I'm just not a fan of the heavy drama/story matches Taker/HHH have. I like their WM17 match the most, though when I take everything into account, I'd have to give the WM28 cell match the nod as the best of the bunch taking everything into account. As for Taker/HBK, always will prefer the Mania 25 match over 26. They're both awesome for completely different reasons, but Mania 25 felt more like a spectacle, a clash of two of the best of all time, and had a fantastic wrestling match, where 26 was an excellent match as well where they had a great workrate, great psychology and storytelling, and a fantastic finish. But the WM26 match just doesn't have the same special feel to me that you get from the WM25 match, or matches like Hogan/Rock and Cena/Rock... but otherwise the storytelling and psychology was definitely better in the WM26 match. I just prefer WM25's workrate, wrestling, action, crowd, and as I said overall feel to it.

Actually, those are very much my same thoughts for Rock/Austin WM17 and WM19 (with 17 similar to 25 and 19 similar to 26).

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Anyone else remember the Trent Barretta/Curt Hawkins series on Superstars from last year (or was it the year before). They weren't anything spectacular but they were pretty fun to watch and were easily in the ***1/2-***3/4 range.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I refuse to watch Superstars. After they fired Masters I just didn't give a shit about the show. Hell, I honestly thought it had been cancelled until like, 2 days ago . Been so long since I've watched it that I just forgot about it.

You should with talents like Tyson Kidd, Hunico, Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins, Usos. There are some real gems on Superstars sometimes.

Yeah they were very good, felt like each match played off of the last and they worked some nice callback spots in amongst Trent bumping like a maniac. Deserved to get onto Smackdown for the series ender but alas, not to be.

Superstars isn't the same though, Masters had the TV formula down to a tee and between Bourne getting injured and Drew now being off the show they're relying on Hunico and a couple of others to fill the void. And I'm sorry but Kidd as good as he is at working sprints and dynamic sequences isn't half the worker Masters is. The match between Hunico and Kidd last week was decent but I know Masters would have got a better match out of Hunico.
