AHHH , That match right before the Royal Rumble in 2006. They played Orton tapping out to Benoit over and over again in the Rumble packages to heavily suggest that they might give Benoit another run. Could you imagine if booking went more like this ;

Benoit wins Rumble
Taker beats Angle at NWO 06
Benoit-Taker main event of WM XXII

I think I might have just came a little.

You just read my mind!

Is there a time machine that can take us back to 2006? Damn, such a missed opportunity.

Just got a whole bunch of Red Rep from Rock marks , not because I said anything bad about the Rock, but because I said HHH-Lesnar was better than Rock/Cena and that Rock/Cena is heavily overrated. Rock316AE has red repped me like 6 times already , the same guy who gave Rock/Cena **** 1/2

Whatever, I just wish we had to get that Benoit-Taker matchup. I wish Benoit was still here so we could get a 2012 Punk against him in what would have **** 1/2 implications for sure. I'm confident that Vengeance 2007 would have tore the house down with those two if given the time.

Sometimes I wonder how much red rep I would have gotten had I joined this place more recently or the likes of RockCOCKSUCKERAE had joined years ago. These days I just don't have the effort to post about numerous things such as Rock being average in the ring and cutting terrible promos or Angle being a horrible professional wrestler .

If there's one good thing that came out of Benoit leaving this world in June 07 of all times, it's the fact that he never lived to job to somebody who is talent-wise a million planets beneath him like Punk.

But I wish he had still been around in 07 and not been drafted to ECW. No doubt they would have put the belt on him after Edge was injured in that summer. It sucks that he's only a one time World Champion (two if you count WCW) and I hope WWE writers have enough sense that they would have let Benoit be the World Champion if him and Khali were the best options available. Or maybe I'm giving them too much credit, not that it matters anymore.

Taker/Benoit in 06 would've been epic. Benoit is arguably the greatest wrestler of all time and Taker's run from 2006-2009 is one of the best of all time match quality wise. Taker could've had a second 5 star match in two months.

Taker/Guerrero as well was a missed opportunity. Armageddon 2004 is the closest we're going to get to them having a match unfortunately. But their interactions were awesome.

I watched the WM28 Blu Ray last week to see if I would have different takes on any of the matches. Punk/Jericho, the match overall was good, but not great, IMO. The 2nd half of the match was much better than the first half, IMO. The first half was worked at a really slow pace. And usually I have no problem with that. Faster pace doesn't necessarily mean better match. But in this match's case, I thought the first half dragged alittle bit. The second half was much better, and especially, the last few minutes or so was excellent, IMO. I just wish they worked a tiny bit faster pace in the 1st half. And Jericho/Punk are two of my current day favorites, but overall, I think they could have done alittle better (especially in the 1st half). I don't know, maybe my expectations were too high for this match, but I wasn't expecting ***** either. I don't know, I just think both guys are capable of better. Still, this wasn't a bad match by any stretch, it was good, just not great, IMO.

Rock/Cena was a tiny bit better than I remember, but still very mediocre/average. The thing is, I never expected a great match to begin with. So, it's not like I had high expectations going in. But I think they pretty much worked to their potential at that period of time. Rock had only wrestled once in the last 8 years and that isn't a good match-up for Cena. Cena isn't good enough to carry a guy who had only worked once in the last 8 years to a very good/great match. Poor time allotment on Vince's part, too. No way these guys should have worked a half-hour. Way too long.

Undertaker/Triple H was just as amazing as I remembered.

Sandrone, your idea of Taker having two ***** matches in a one year span has led me to look at my own rankings and ask ; who are the only individuals to wrestle two ***** matches in a one year span... Well according to my rankings, here are the WWF/WWE wrestlers :

Bret Hart (SS 96/WM XIII)
Steve Austin (SS 96/WM XIII)
Triple H (RR 00/FL 00)
Shawn Michaels (WM XXV/WM XXVI)
Undertaker (WM XXV/WM XXVI)
John Cena (MITB 11/ER 12)

Trips being the only individual to accomplish the feat within one calendar year. If you include WCW, Flair and Steamboat go into the category as well. Bret-Austin have the shortest amount of time between ***** matches, with a gap of only 4 months.

Guys with ***** matches in a one year period:

Flair/Windham x2 in 86 and 87.
Flair/Steamboat x3 in 89.
Austin/Bret x 2 in 96 and 97.
Undertaker/HBK x2 in 09 and 2010.

And I think that's it .

Only two I have are Austin and Bret... against each other... SVS 96 and WM13.

Bret has three ***** matches in 3 years (Bret/Owen WM10 and the two matches above)
Taker has two ***** in 3 years (Taker/Angle NWO 06 and Taker/HBK WM25)
Austin has three ***** in 4 and a half years (The two matches above and Austin/Rock WM17)
Kurt Angle has two ***** in 3 years (Angle/Benoit RR03 (Greatest Match of All Time) and Taker/Angle NWO 06)

Angle also has two high ****3/4 matches in a 2-3 week span in 03 (Lesnar/Angle Ironman match and the Taker/Angle SD match two or three weeks before it).
