Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Most people don't think that much of the RR match because of the finish (its overbooked and kinda stupid lol), but myself and Andy adore it more than SS (he hates that match, I still love it lol).

Vs Davey from SS 92 - ****, and same for their IYH match in 95 too. I'm not as in love with them as most people .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Vengeance 2005:

Carlito vs Shelton Benjamin - ***1/4
- A pretty good opener for this PPV. Both men do a good job and make it the best they can in about 12 minutes of match time. Shelton is always on a roll and Carlito keeps up despite not having a finisher yet. There's a smarky crowd here in Las Vegas with Shelton getting booed and Carlito cheered.

Victoria vs Christy Hemme - **
- Not as bad as WM21 but it's still the low point of the matches. And all that screaming reminds me of Kelly Kelly's "wrestling". It tells you how little they care about the women's division at this point, though, when the Women's Champion (Trish) is injured and still champion.

Kane vs Edge - ***1/2
- A much better match than any they've had before. Crowd is as usual more concerned about Matt Hardy than what goes on but they manage to put on a quality match unlike the terrible PPV match before this at Backlash 04. A lot of drama in the end with Snitsky interfering, Lita trying to get involved and Kane going through every single one of them to win. Surprised I must say as I was damn sure Edge would win before moving on into the feud with Matt. Before I move on to the next match, though, I must drop this. Kane & Lita's relationship has got to be one of the most confusing angles ever. It goes in so many different directions and despite Kane forcing Lita to marry him, their marriage ends by Kane coming out as the face and Lita the heel. Now I know this was fueled by real-life stuff behind the scenes with Edge/Matt/Lita but still...

Shawn Michaels vs Kurt Angle - ***3/4
- Another good match between these two but this feels in many ways like a poor man's rendition of the WM match. Starts off slow with headlocks and shit, then they go outside the ring for a bit and it gets exciting by the end with finishers being exchanged and the crowd coming into life. Still one hell of a match and HBK gets even with Angle following an awesome Sweet Chin Music against a diving Angle. Oh, and the build-up to this was so bad that they had to recap their WM match as the pre-match video package. It was literally Angle coming to Raw with HBK asking for a rematch and him answering "Okay".

John Cena vs Christian vs Chris Jericho - ****
- This would have had more potential as a one-on-one between Cena and Christian as that's how it started off but it's still a great triple threat. Traditional with every guy getting their short amount of time in the ring together and an interesting commentary team as Lawler pulls for Jericho (after sucking Christian's cock for over 2 years!), Coachman for Christian and JR being neutral/pro-Cena. Overall a very enjoyable match and I have to laugh at the five or so Cena haters this early as there's a very brief "Cena sucks" chant going on and some goofball has the thumbs down when camera closes in on Cena doing the double 5 Knuckle Shuffle. It sucks how they dropped the ball on Christian after this by drafting him to Smackdown and burying him to the point he decided to not renew his contract by the end of 05.

Batista vs Triple H - ****3/4
- And here's the awesome Hell in a Cell main event! Both men go all out and this feels like an epic, violent fight and thankfully, doesn't come off as the extremely forced garbage that was the HBK/HHH match the year before. This match has everything a cell match needs save for them exiting it and going to the top. Steel chains, blood, chair with barbwire, sledgehammers, steel steps, finishers, a hot crowd, excitement and so on. Lasts over 20 minutes and every minute of it is worth watching. So many memorable moments and I can't even put it into words. I can only imagine how a live experience would have felt when HHH gave Batista a Pedigree. HHH-hating smarks and casuals all around must have thought "Fuck, this is the end!" only for Batista to kick out to a huge reaction. I also liked the finish with Batista doing the powerbomb and HHH trying to counter with the sledgehammer but couldn't quite get it done due to the beating he had taken. After this, HHH's "reign of terror" is officially over and he will be gone for almost 4 months to take a break. He still waited and did a master job of legitimizing Batista as a main eventer here before that, though. People talk about today being a transitional period for WWE but so was this year and look at how great it was. Cena's break into the main event was in a masterpiece "I Quit" match while Batista got in through this brutal HIAC classic. Today, I can't even dream of something 1/10th of this in quality.

Overall: **** out of ***** (A great PPV, if not a bit short with the matches. Only 1 hour into it, half the card was finished and although the three main event matches got a lot of time, the Viscera/Lillian segment was a huge waste of time that could have been used for a better match. But with the matches we got, every single one delivered except the divas one but that's short enough it wont matter in the end. Quite possibly the best PPV so far into the year which says a lot since every single one of them have been quality, including the Smackdown exclusives!)

Yep, but the match they had on Superstars is probably better. And also 1,000,000 minutes long IIRC.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh THIS Top 50 Finishers DVD is pissing me off to the maximum of pissed-off-ness. ROCK VS GOLDBERG? What is this NONSENSE I'm watching ?

Speaking of Bret-Backlund , it's the only **** match on the whole fucking DVD so far. DEAR WWE, MAKE YOUR FUCKING MATCH LISTINGS BETTER.

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

Wow... just finished watching the Attitude Era documentary and I gotta say... I feel like I've gotten closure.

It has literally changed my perspective on WWE. Since I started watching again about a year ago, I've always just had hopes of seeing all my favorites from the attitude era return (main reason I started watching again was to see Rock). Now admittedly, many of the new super stars have grown on me. But part of me still craved so badly to see the Austin's, Road Dogg's, Undertaker's etc... I really just wanted to relive those attitude era days.

Seeing the documentary, however, has made me realize that the attitude era was really something special. It was more than just a show, it was also about the time we were living in. The attitude era was just a different, unique time in the world and it's just something that can't be replicated. I haven't realized that until seeing the documentary, and I think it's because I've just never had closure. The AE ended and there was no real reason or formal explanation, it left fans wanting more. Seeing the AE documentary just really kind of gave me that closure I had never known I needed.

Would I still like to see the WWE enter another "attitude era"? Absolutely; however, in saying that, I realize that the WWE will never again be what it was in the late 90's-early 2000's. We need to be proud to have lived through a once-in-a-life-time era. It's okay to want WWE to push the envelope, but we have to realize it's going to be in a new way and with new super stars. And sure, it's always great to see old super stars return, like the Road Dogg at the rumble; and maybe Stone Cold still has another match or two in him and it's nice to have these just as a reminder of the past.

Moving forward, I still hope to see WWE go with a more edgy brand in the future. Pushing the envelope is what made it exciting; however, like I said, it has to be new and different with the super stars of today.

I finally feel like I can move on! Great DVD! Still have the other two, with the actual matches. Can't wait.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I just saw the Attitude era documentary myself and all I got out of it was that the product was so good back then and every wrestler literally fighting for their spot... to which I say... Where the hell is that in today's product?

I want to grab a few Brock Lesnar videos from his 2012 return from YT, has anyone got a date lost of his apps at all on Raw?
