Brock's game plan in the iron man match is amazing.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Damn, that European tour worked wonders for Chris Masters. I just saw the match he had with Drew McIntyre on Superstars 5/12/11 and both men did a great job of putting on a really good match. Really loved the limb work and the way Masters sold it. Masters is a damn good seller alright. The way he sold that punch looked like it legit knocked him out cold. I also like how when Masters did the Soamoan drop instead of getting up one time (as so much guys on the indies do nowadays) he lies down on the floor, selling the leg and gets up really slowly once again SELLING the leg. This was a really a good match and is IMO the way how wrestling matches should be done. Simple but effective moves. Less is more. All the leg work McIntyre did, it was simple leg locks. He didn't use no fancy pretzel like move because it wasn't needed. When he did the figure four around the post it meant so much. I also liked the babyface comeback. I like when they are done in bits. Masters would mount an offense but McIntyre would just attack the leg or the offense mounted put so much strain on Masters' leg that he had to rest for a while. That is what I want in a wrestling match. Take me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. By just exchanging holds or chain wrestling for chain wrestling sake you're not doing that. By randomly putting a guy into some bend up fuck him up submission, it's not doing that. This match also had moments where you thought it was gonna end but it didn't. It was very, very unpredictable and it could have gone either way. They didn't need to kick out of 100 finishers to do it. They just incorporated good storytelling. This is a really good match and now I suddenly wanna see more of Masters in WWE

Great to see you love it, it is indeed an awesome match and you touched on everything superbly.

As I said as well there's also a great nearfall from the skyhigh spinebuster/baldo bomb move which pinned Mcintyre in a 2 minute match they had on Smackdown earlier in the year which was a really great callback spot that further pushed the match over the edge for me. I also loved the selling and build to that Samoan Drop, felt like such a big spot in the match which is amazing for how simplistic and basic the move has been used by other wrestlers in WWE.

I can, I will, & I do.

As I told my father in the audience at Cleveland, it was the announcement that HBK would be there that made me want to buy the tickets.

Undertaker, on the other hand?... I may be one of the few people that did not stand or applaud hardly at all when he came down the ramp at that same show. I often change channels when he wrestles on TV (would, except that it's mainly PPVs, when I have to stay on the channel, so I know if anything I want to see happens/when the mach ends).

What's wrong with Taker? Granted he only wrestles once a year now but he's pretty much helped carry the company for about 20 years.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I dont see how anyone can dislike Taker

The man's effort, dedication, and physical and mental conditioning is some of the finest in wrestling history

Just watched this match for the first time and I gotta say that Masters' selling was absolutely fantastic. I especially loved the way he sold that punch that you mentioned as well how he sold the move he did off the middle rope. It's a shame that he was released shortly after this. McIntyre's leg work was great too. I've always loved his unique, innovative style in how he uses every part of the ring to work on a certain body part. I don't know if I'd give it as high of a rating as you did, but it's a really enjoyable match that's worth a watch.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

What do you guys think was the best brand exclusive PPV for each brand? I'd go Vengeance 2005 (RAW) and Vengeance 2003 (Smackdown).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Unforgiven 06 is up there for Raw too. Ultimately, I'd go with Vengeance 03 & 05. Judgment Day 06 is an underrated show imo.
