WWF Raw Is War 11/20/2000 - Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Chris Benoit

***3/4 This was fucking AWESOME. A ton of great technical stuff early on, and then both men got increasingly vicious. Benoit was Benoit in this every counter and move was smoother and Austin more then held his own for the most part, I would bump this to 4 stars if 1. Austin would of sold the arm and 2, if the finish wasn't so anticlimactic.

Vengeance 2003 or Vengeance 2005 , preferably 2005 because I'm a mark for shit I USED to mark out to when I was younger

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Nice to see some love for that match. Usually when Austin/Benoit gets mentioned its the epic 2001 SD match. They had a tremendous match on Raw the same week as well that doesn't get mentioned, and I'm sure they have at least 2 more TV matches between that 00 one and the May 01 ones. If Benoit didn't get injured I wonder if we would have seen a singles match on PPV between them.

That Austin/Benoit is really good. Probably the second best WWF TV match of 2000. Other than the big 5-on-5 in February I can't think of anything clearly better.

Favourite single brand PPV is probably Judgment Day 2006.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

LOVE Judgement Day 2006 other than the Booker/Lashley match ; FUCK THAT SHIT. Enjoyed Henry-KURT for some reason that I don't really understand, and I've always been a huge fan of JBL-Mysterio matches as well. OH and that awesome Finlay-Benoit match takes place there. Smackdown just owned Raw in every sense of the word in 2006.

I actually miss single-branded PPVs

I might like the Austin/Angle match from the week after a little better than the Benoit match, not sure though, would have to watch em both back to back.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Don't think I've seen that one. Is it from Raw or SmackDown?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Tis from Raw. Maybe I'm confusing it with one of their 01 matches that I really like at the start of the year. Either way its good as it made my Best of Raw 2000 comp .

Just finished watching this match. Pretty damn good for the amount of time it got. The finish did feel very anticlimactic, though. I agree with that. I'ma rate it @ ***1/2. Their SD match is a true classic, though. ****3/4 worthy.

While I was at it, I also watched the Smackdown match between Taker & Benoit. Another short one with a DQ ending. Had potential but like I've said before, they should have gone at it in a bigger stage or at least been given 20 minutes to put on a classic.
