The LiO match could have had more action, but I don't think Susumu was really trying due to the fact he was just there to job and the fact the Briscoes had already worked 193874973947 other matches in the past 2 weeks (NOAH Jr. Tag league).

I'd have to search the crap out of my archives for a full review, but the basics are Briscoes couldn't handle Shingo and so targetted Doi. Theere were giant parts built around them targetting the wrong guy and Shingo thus kept killing them. The Osaka match played off this.

The 2/3 falls is what I'm referring to.

I'll do the Briscoes-MCMG later this week. Remind me.

*sigh*

Finally settled Shawn vs. Flair at ****1/2

What it came down to was my love of it vs. my logic, and while my love remained strong, I ended up asking myself "Was this better than Edge vs. Undertaker?" and in the end, the answer was no. They have the same rating, but Edge vs. Taker is a little higher and my current frontrunner.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks Edge/Taker was a better match. If you don't mind, could you type up a brief review on Edge/Taker? I'm really interested in reading your thoughts on the match.

Edge - Taker as far as i'm concerned lost a lot at the start.
The crowd was blown out by that point, the open venue didn't make it any easier for noise to build, and the fact that Taker was a bit of a shoe-in to win was a killer at first.

At somewhere near the half-way point, it all kinda clicked together.
Edge seems to be something like a WWE version of Austin Aries in terms of performance against good opponents. While you stick him in the ring with a mediocre wrestler and he's only just above mediocre, he didn't look out of place next to Benoit or Angle (good Angle) and always seems to be able to match everything thrown at him. Christian turned out to be the more talented of the two, but Edge can aparently still pull something out when against a high-level opponent.

They told a couple of cool stories (Edge kept countering the "old school" - which i always found an immensely silly move btw - finishers were countered left and right) and ended up with a pretty nice long finish stretch.

What really hurt it was the audio...and by audio i mean commentary and crowd. This would've been a different level of match if JR called it, or if JBL was there, and so would it be were it for a better crowd. I don't know why but they just died in intervals even at the very end.

Overall, i'd say ****-****1/4 from me, mainly because it felt very "cold" at times, especially early on, but at bits near the end too...
What the hell, throw on another 1/4 for Charles Robinson's dash...imagine if he had fallen over
In all seriousness:
****1/4

P.S. Has anyone notticed how Cole keeps calling Taker's gogoplata (which i don't particularly like tbh) "That move!" because he doesn't know what it's called?

Michael Cole is an absolute terrible commentator. Beyond all belief. Ugh.
