Sting, Booker T, Goldberg & Kronik Vs Kevin Nash, Jeff Jarrett, Scott Steiner & Vince Russo - War Games - Nitro 04/11/2000

It's a War Games match in the year 2000 on Nitro and NOT on PPV featuring Vince Russo. For the WCW title. Even though it's a team match. Triple cage too. And anyone can win the match and the title BEFORE all the competitors enter the match. If someone does get the title belt from on top of the cage, they then have to LEAVE the cage to win. So someone could take it from them and win by doing almost fuck all. If you didn't think this was gonna suck from the get go, the announcer claiming that Jarrett and Sting are the two best wrestlers in the world just as the match starts should make it more clear :p. Also, why is the heel team 1 member short? Shouldn't the babyfaces have the disadvantage if there is gonna be one?

Sting and Jarrett... do some stuff. Then Steiner comes in and does some stuff, then Kronik come out and enter the match. Together. At the same time. And apparently it could have been another heel too instead of Kronik. Did they forget that War Games like, had rules and shit?

Russo comes out with a helmet because he has a concussion. And the Harris Brothers climb the cage on the outside to get Kronik who are trying to kill Steiner.

:lmao Tony tries to put Nash over as being a smart champion, saying that he asked Nash earlier what his strategy was, and apparently Nash said he would stand by the door and wait for people to come down with the belt and take it from them. So what does Nash ACTUALLY do? Runs into the ring and beats people up. LOL.

Nash is supposed to be on Russo's team, but keeps trying to kill him which is pretty funny. Then Goldberg comes in and has the chance to kill him but Russo gets the better of him. With a baseball bat, but still; Russo beat Goldberg lol.

Oh hey, Sting is in this match. He just flops around doing fuck all. BEST WRASTLER IN TEH WORLD!

Somehow everyone ends up in the second cage, which is odd because all the heels were controlling everyone in the ring one second and the next the babyfaces were somehow able to climb a ladder without being stopped. This entire match just makes NO SENSE. From the rules, the way its booked, how everyone performs... NO SENSE.

Booker T gets the belt, then gets killed on the way down and Russo gets it. Then gets kicked in the head by The Cat. And then The Cat gets a powerbomb for his troubles. Then Goldberg decides he can escape from his handcuffs. Maybe he should have done that, I dunno, 5 minutes ago? Ah well. Goldberg tries to leave with the belt, and Bret Hart slams the door into his face. Where the fuck did Bret come from? Aren't there enough guys already in the match? Nash then hugs Russo and walks out with the belt. Ok.

Only reason I watched this is because I'm downloading all the War Games matches and this finished first. Pile of fucking retarded shit.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I loved me some Tito Santana but what an interesting guy to beat Taker for the first time.

I did read an article that before Bret Hart got his singles push Vince was flirting with the idea of pushing Tito instead and make him IC champ again and give him a run with the winged eagle to expand their fan base in Mexico.

Undertaker has had an incredible string of classics at WrestleMania in the last five years. How would you guys rank his matches from WM23 - WM27? I say

1. Taker/HBK WM25
2. Taker/HBK WM26
3. Taker/HHH WM27
4. Taker/Batista WM23
5. Taker/Edge WM24

Thing is I could go back and forth on 1 & 2 being the best and 3-5 too. They are some of my favorite matches ever and I expect WM28 to be added to the mix this year. Undertaker's single performances in them are all time great performances from any wrestler ever especially WM26.

I thought WM 26 between HBK/Taker was better than WM 25. Most disagree with me but the match was great and it had a better ending.

1. Taker/Michaels WM25
2. Taker/Batista WM23
3. Taker/Edge WM24
4. Taker/Michaels WM26

Haven't seen the match with HHH, and i'm not nearly as high on the WM26 rematch as everyone else, 25 was leaps and bounds better imo. I'm honestly not even a big fan of the Edge match from 24 either so it ranking 3 doesn't mean too much, it's prob on par, or slightly better than WM26 in my eyes, but not by much. Both were disappointing to me. The WM25 match was jut fantastic though, I'd go **** 1/2+ on it easily. The WM23 match with Batista was great too, one of my favorite main event title matches at WM from the last 10 yrs (along with HHH/Cena, and the Triple Threat from WM20).

WM26 as a whole was just a lackluster show to me, it was good, but for a Wrestlemania, and the card it had, it not only Could've been better, it Should've been better. The time limit for the matches were just criminal.

This year WM has so much potential, but I'm highly skeptical that the time will be spread like it should, that always seems to be the "achilles heel" for these shows, along with the odd match placement, I don't quite understand having World Championship matches going on first. Oh well though, what do I know?
