I wouldn't put Dude/Austin anywhere near the HIAC, but it's still awesome.

Jericho/Punk was miles better watching it for the first time on TV. Miles. Great match. I'm just sad I was so out of it in the stadium while it was actually happening lol.

I still really liked the Hell in a Cell match, you can't really deny that HBK, Taker and Triple H are the only guys on the roster that can get you emotionally invested in a match.

Sounds to me like the matches were radically different TV and in the arena

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've found it to be like that from the couple of TV tapings I've been too. Its MUCH easier imo to appreciate a good/great match when watching it back on TV with the commentary, camera angles etc than it is when you are sitting near the back of the arena . You can still tell if a certain match is good or not mostly, but I can certainly see how being at something like WM and getting completely drained by the likes of Undertaker/HHH would prevent you from being able to pay as much attention to Jericho/Punk as you would like.

I was so spent from the HIAC that I barely watched Jericho/Punk tbh. I wanted to be interested but I just didn't have the energy. Watching in TV and watching live are 2 completely different experiences.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Got excited when I saw this week's Superstars had Hunico vs Tyson Kidd, and it didn't disappoint. Fantastic match, up there with Bryan/Regal as the best Superstars matches I've seen. Tyson Kidd is a class above 90% of the workers in the company, and I'm just praying at some point this year he gets a chance to work a PPV match (one-on-one if possible), because this was PPV caliber stuff. Hunico more than does his bit too, even if his promo on the way to the ring was a bit shit.

Exact same feelings for me. I was pretty drunk at that point and the whole atmosphere made it tough to focus on the match. Jericho rules though. Another great WM performance from him.

Where's the best place to find old PPV's from 00-02?

Watched this as well, though I was left with a lesser impression. Commercial break really killed Hunico's heat section which was terrible timing:

Hunico v Tyson Kidd, Superstars 04/05/2012

Opening mat sequences were smooth and I loved the Lucha sequence where Hunico has Kidd in the gory bomb and brings him into a pinning position on the mat and Kidd manages to hook the arms and transition into a sunset flip counter. There was also a nice moonsault armdrag off of the ropes which Hunico sold nicely and it was nice to see him constantly being outmatched in the beginning. Transition spot was nice in the urgency Hunico showed but the commercial kills whatever workover he did as they come back and he's working a nice submission but you're dying to see what he busted out inbetween: they did do a nice spot however where Kidd goes for a sunset flip but the left arm gives out and Hunico immediately goes back to work. Hunico taking taking the Jerry Estrada bump but landing on his feet and then doing some Arn Anderson esque 'you see that shit, I'm too smart to fall on my ass' schtick leading into Kidd sneaking up and hitting a running kick off the apron was super, but the finishing stretch wasn't terribly dramatic bar one sweet counter out of a tilt a whirl. Finish was good in setting up a rematch but I was just wanting Kidd to incorporate more spots around his weakened limb, like he has this set up spot where he's on the ropes, kicks his opponent and backflips onto the apron to set up a springboard....and you're just wanting him to sell that left arm when he's transitioning.

Kidd's a nice smooth worker but I'm not sold on him yet as anything more than a guy capable of some impressive visual shit, I mean Bourne's equally as good at that sort of thing but he works hard to bump and sell his ass off inbetween the awesome visual stuff. Good but I wouldn't say essential viewing.

**1/2

As for Kidd, he's a better pure wrestler than 90% of the others in the company...but I'm not sold on him yet as anything past 'good' when it comes to being a worker. Hopefully he and Hunico have a rematch in the coming weeks because the potential was there with an actual heat section, the chemistry was apparent and they had some swank sequences but I was left wanting more.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I can't think of comparing any match from 1998 and 1999 to the Hell in a Cell match.

On Angle/Lesnar from 'Mania XIX, it's good, but not on par with their Iron Man Match.
