FUCK this was good, and as soon as i'm done watching the rest of '00 I'm skipping all the way to 2005/2006
Is that the one when Orton helped Booker T out during the Best of 7 Series? And Booker said he would return the favour and as I recall, he never did....

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

This may very well have been discussed previously here but I can't seem to find it, so just wanted to ask if anyone's seen the Best of Clash of a Champions DVD? Any good? Saw a really good deal for it for Cyber Monday, trying to decide whether to go for the Clash DVD or the Best of Starrcade which looks awesome. Thanks in advance for the help.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Attitude Era was one of the most underwhelming documentaries they have ever done. Mainly because of the expectations and the fact that there's so much footage and material to talk about in the greatest and most successful period of all time. It was basically random segments one after another with wrestlers talking about them. And most of the interviews with the top stars were from other DVDs. Completely lazy and missed almost everything. Good things were the people talking about it like Simmons, Henry, Road Dogg etc, and the only thing I felt that they really presented well was how fun it was to the roster who lived like rock starts along with the competitive environment in the locker room compared to today. Showing the criticism from the PC media with Henry segment was part of some article that was made on the WWF in early 1999. Henry was so awesome in that character. They did some random 30 seconds Rock mention on the entire doc with interview from his Journey doc. Horrible and it felt like a DX campaign at times. It was fun to watch and remember but it was nothing compared to what they could have done. Less than an hour? There are other DVDs that did a better job on the era than this. Fun but mostly disappointing.

Here's the Legends Of Wrestling episode on "The History Of Raw" that Cal and I were discussing in here about a week ago.




Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Where do y'all rank Christian's 2009 among the best WWE years? If you stick to one year per wrestler I'm seriously starting to think it's top 10.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Christian's 2009 was amazing, and WWECW was by far the best brand in WWE, even better than SmackDown '09. His matches with Swagger, Dreamer, Ryder, Jericho, Tatsu, Regal and Big Zeke provided a shitload of quality wrestling, and a ton of fun, with the Regal match from Sheffield being the pinnacle. But they slapped him in the face hard for not letting him retire the title, that title change on the last SyFy show was completely useless.

Hell yes. Cheers on posting it.

Got to throw in my echo about Christian during 2009. I've put that year over more than I have Ric Flair in '89 & Hiroshi Tanahashi in his last 5 years, it seems. It is that stellar.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Agreed on all fronts about Christian's 2009, one of the greatest pure years in WWE history based on purely good/great matches consistently. Christian could make anybody look fantastic, as seen by his matches with Zeke.

The best part of his 2009 was that incredible match with swagger on 2/25/09 and the aforementioned regal match. WWECW was a goldmine for great matches on a consistent basis.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The nearly 2 hours of it was probably with all the footage and shit they throw in, as my download is almost 2 hours long.
