Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Years with TOP matches better than 2012 : 1997, 2000, 2001, 2005

The Giant vs Hulk Hogan (Hog Wild 1996)

So, I saw this like two years ago and don't remember a damn thing about it other than it being completely horrible. I'm going to be optimistic about it this time. The bell ring and..... YEAH THIS IS BAD. REALLY REALLY BAD. They're moving like two sumo wrestlers covered in molasses out there, and the work being out in is even worse ; as I'm writing this Hogan has The Giant in what seems to be a 64 minute knucklelock. Hogan has the most uninspired offense I've ever seen in this match, just absolutely horrible.

I mean, the only moves Hogan uses in this match are as follows ; Knucklelock, arm-lock, back-rake X 678430 , punch, belt shot. WHO HAD THE BRILLIANT FUCKING IDEA TO GIVE THIS SO MUCH TIME ?!?!?! One of, if not THE worst main event singles match that I've ever seen. Of course we can't even get a good finish either, as the ending belt shot is so incredibly weak and unconvincingly horrible that I'm half ashamed to somewhat like Hogan. I mean, I feel bad for Giant because he was really green at this point, but as a supposed "ring-veteran" , Hogan should have been better than this... AND IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SHORTER.

Avoid at all costs unless you're a super Hogan mark who has to see every single Hogan title change in history. Fucking bullshit.

DUD

Speaking of every Hogan match in history, check this ish out :

http://hulkhoganhistory.weebly.com/match-history.html

Homie has every single Hogan match he could find listed on there, and a TON of them have videos (some real goodies on there) . Check it out if you like rare matches , or you're somewhat of a Hogan fan in general. So many links on there it's insane ; wish we had this kind of site for Trips :hogan :hhh

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

15 minute match with 10 minute stalling. Go the FUCK away. One of the few matches I pondered giving a negative rating too.

It's so bad it makes the other terrible Hogan WCW matches look solid. Matches vs Piper aren't so bad after watching that one. NBA tag from Bash at the Beach '98 is still just as horrid though. Not all matches are immune.

If that Hogan site has his match vs Bob Backlund from 4/12/80 then It's on a Hogan DVD set so it has to make it. I've said it a few times before in here and I'll say it again: Best Hogan match ever.

Oh lord. When you claimed there was a match worse than Hogan/Giant from '96 I was really gonna debate you. Then you mention Tower of Doom. I'll say they're equal in terms of being just total mindfucks on the bad scale. Tower of Doom was such a schmoz of a gimmick that it hurts my brain.

How does that and Finlay/Regal occur on the same show? You go from the highest high or the year to the lowest low in the span of 90 minutes.

I'd argue that Austin/Angle from Summerslam 2001 blew away everything else that year pardon the Two Man Power Trip vs Canadians tag.
Hog Wild and that tower of doom match are on nearly equal levels of shit. Hog Wild is just so boring, Hogan rolls out of the ring for what seems like forever and when the match does finally get started it's nothing special. Then the finish happens.

Tower of Doom is a match that makes no fucking sense at all. The entire concept of the match makes my brain hurt. WHY ARE THERE LEVELS? The gimmick doesn't make any sense at all and it's just a massive clusterfuck. The finish is the stupidest thing i've ever seen, the match is stupid, HATE HATE HATE this match. IT'S 2 ON 8 IN A MULTI LAYER STEEL CAGE. WHAT THE FUCK

Lower than a dud, negative stars

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Tower of DOOM is Trips-Steiner bad .... It's so awful that it's actually awesome. You get a degree of entertainment out of it that you don't get out of the average match. I'd rather watch Trips-Steiner than a ** 3/4-*** match that I'd forget about.

Remember watching that Hogan-Backlund match a while ago and thinking it was pretty damn good. Might as well throw in a bonus match review for y'all as I keep on trucking through this DVD

The Outsiders vs Harlem Heat (Halloween Havoc 1996)

I'm a big fan of Booker throughout his career. However, when it comes to Harlem Heat I was always a little bit iffy. This match was, in short.... Forgettable. I just watched it and I honestly have no fucking clue what happened in it. I remember a Harlem Hangover (AWESOME) , the Outsiders being super fucking over , and some typical NWO shenanigans leading to the finish. Scott Hall was probably the best in this match, as he actually took a few good bumps that made me pretty impressed with his work.

Surprising of course, because those with the guranteed contracts in WCW are usually guranteed to be complete trash. This match came and went with some solid bumping from Hall, but overall a very uninspired effort by both teams, dissapointing... Well, not really... It's Hall and Nash.

**

BONUS MATCH

Syxx vs The Bounty Hunter (NWO Saturday Night 1996)

SO, Bounty Hunter is essentially a fat motherfucker who happens to be a jobber. This is a Syxx showcase in an empty arena of all places. This match is a squash done in all black and white, complete with Hall and Nash commentary, Dibiase ring announcing, and the like. It's pretty creative I must say, but how in the name of fuck am I supposed to review an empty-arena squash filmed exclusively in black and white ? Syxx OBVIOUSLY wins , and we get a promo afterwards.

Not rateable in the slightest, but an interesting concept and obviously included on the DVD to showcase NWO Saturday Night and the difference between NWO and WCW. I'm definitely glad I saw the segment for some reason, strangely entertaining

Almost WCW in a nutshell when it came to some things. (maybe more than "some")

That match is so bad that the next time a mutli-layered steel cage match happened it had David Arquette as the World Champion and it was LOADS better. That doesn't do it justice. It was 100,000,000x more bearable. It was actually a good match, imo.

Arquette didn't do anything, but miss a splash and screw DDP. While letting Page & Jarrett beat the snot out of each other. About as "smart" as WCW could have been in that situation.

Yep, the Hogan/Backlund match is boss. I <3 it so much.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Tower of Doom no matter how much I despise the match never fails to make me laugh, the frying pans might be the dumbest weapon ever used in a wrestling match. The finish is so terrible and horribly done that I crack up whenever I see it. But it is so awful, so so awful.

Now you made me want to watch Trips/Steiner again. HERE COME THE LAUGHS

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watch Steinermania #1 to get your fill of that match.

Belly to belly suplex counter. Oh, how fun.

Steiner and Trips might have the worst in ring chemistry i've ever seen. The true question is which match is worse, Trips/Steiner Royal Rumble or Trips/Steiner No Way Out

Both matches are hilarious either way

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh, Rumble in a landslide. NWO was better, although along the lines of piss-poor quality too.

Well, Sheamus vs Big Show I was excellent. Can't add anything more to it than what has been said since Hell in a Cell. Finishing stretch was HOT. ****.

Looking forward to seeing Survivor Series now. TLC should hopefully be something special too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Stevie Ray is one of the worst wrestlers of all time. I hope there's a 20 minute Stevie Ray v someone else Worst of All Time-level like Konnan match from late 90s WCW because it would easily surpass HHH/Steiner.

I kind of like Hogan/Giant.

Rumble Trip/Steiner is better than NWO because it's so much worse than NWO.
