Anyways, the match rules. Simply cuz Nigel is a boob when it comes to picking teams. I bet he always lost at kickball.
Thanks for the info. I will look into downloading that 8 man tag, since I only bothered downloading their singles matches lol.

Little of both. Especially since I pimped that match to you like every time we were on here at the same time. Glad you enjoyed it.

Spoiler for includes result for the Epic Encounter match:
The match was 2/3 falls and went to a 60 minute draw. I felt the weakest part of the match was by far the crowd. I only gave it **** but I've seen many give it ****1/2 - ****3/4. I felt like they were trying too hard to go broadway.


The SOTF match was after Driven and was Nigel's 1st show and 1st match after FINALLY winning the title. The match was all about Danielson proving that even though Nigel had the belt, Dragon was still the best in the world. Nigel had never definitively beat Danielson, so he had something to prove as well. Danielson's selling in this match was incredible imo.

Spoiler for result of the SOTF match:
It was in the 1st round of a tourney, so they went to the 20 minute time limit. Nigel still didn't have he's huge win over Dragon. This would be paid off big time in their 6 Year Anny match.


Driven is my favorite match of their's (which is funny considering how much I pimped the Unified match to you). I have it the full 5, although I'm one of the few.

I know you already seen the 6th Year Anny match, but I'll delve into it anyway. The storyline behind it is why I love it so much.

Nigel was injured in November 2007 only about a month into his title reign. He said that under no circumstances would he drop the title. He made an appearence at Glory by Honor VI in New York and even though he was a face, he was booed harshly due to the fact that he wasn't defending the title at such a big show due to injury. He returned from the injury at Rising Above in late December again in New York to another huge round of boos. He beat Austin Aries but in the process, recieved a concussion. The next night again in New York (The city where these events take place is obviously a pattern), he pulled out of a 4 way match due to said concussion. Fans wanted him to forfeit the title but Nigel basically said, "Fuck the haters, I busted my ass for this title and I'm not just gonna give it up like that." He said he would face whoever won the 4 way match that he was originally supposed to be in at 6th Year Anny. That match was obviously won by Danielson.

I should also point out Danielson had his eye detached in August 2007 in a match with then champion Takeshi Morishima. This is a big part of the 6YA story.

After the opening match at 6YA, Nigel came out to no music...just a chorus of boos from, you guessed it, the New York faithful. He said that the fans in New York had been on his ass since he got injured originally and that he was going to rob them of their precious title match by forfeiting the title. Danielson came out in raged and screamed at Nigel not to do it. The title was too important to be thrown to the ground like that. Nigel agreed but said that he was worried about his health because a lot of Danielson's offense involves attacking the head (remember Nigel's concussion?). Danielson swore on his word that he wouldn't go for Nigel's head, because the title meant too much to him to win it that way. Nigel obliged and the match main evented the show.

****3/4.

Thanks Viva, should help me to understand more going into their matches . I find it funny that their weakest of about 8 singles matches is only **** .

Have you seen their Battle of the Best match yet? If so, any thoughts/ratings for it?

Since it's kinda come up with the talk of Nigel/Dragon what was with the Cabana/Dragon 2/3 falls match. The whole match seemed built around Cabana getting an early pin and Danielson getting desperate at the end to get a fall or he would lose the title, but unless I'm completely wrong on the rules of a 2/3 falls match even if Danielson hadn't gotten a pin and the match had ended 1-0 to Cabana he wouldn't of won the title. I didn't notice first time through but when you think about it it completely ruins the whole psychology of the end of the match.

Haven't seen this either but I was under the impression that if Colt won 1-0 then he won the strap. Seems like the way they were booking it to be.

Yeah that's how it was booked which is why I was confused as to whether I misunderstood 2/3 falls. I was under the impression to win you had to get 2 falls not get 2 falls or have the most at the time limit. Seemed they booked it as an iron man match but with 2/3 falls rules.

Am i the only one whose uncomfortable with all of BigCals posting in this section.
Seriously, its good to see that Cal finally got to watching this feud, considering they couldn't have a bad match with each other if they tried.

I want a Nigel comp to be released, don't care by who, so long as one gets done! Would be nice to own his matches with Samoa Joe, Danielson, Aries and other guys without having to get all the separate PPV's.
