With a lot of people looking forward to Wrestlemania X-8, I thought it would be a good time to look back at the past PPVs and let us know what your favorite of all time was, or any classic matches that deserve to be mentioned...
Hall: "Hey maybe we could have a few beers with the boys..." Nash: "I don't think thats such a good idea..."
Was there anything good about Bulldog/Rock at No Mercy? I remember it being short and pretty lame.
Fully Loaded 2000-I attended this ppv in Dallas, and had great great 1st level deck seats. A lot of great long matches and minimal crap.
Royal Rumble 2001-The best Royal Rumble ppv ever. Screw 1992. That had the best Rumble match, this one had the best overall card.
Summerslam 2001-Awesome show from start to finish. Some disappointing finishes and main event, but only one match on it truly sucked IMHO (and no CFGB, there was nothing good about that crappy ass cage match).
"It is a strange fate that we suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing...such a little thing." -Boromir
I'm going with the last one that I was into emotionally from start to finish - Royal Rumble 2K. I tell ya, that Foley-Helmsley streetfight had me so something I don't normally do while watching a wrestling match...cringe and cover my eyes. THAT's good stuff right there.
Summerslam '91- Hart/Hennig and to a lesser extent, LOD vs. Nasty Boys
Summerslam '92- Warrior/Savage and most importantly Hart/Bulldog.
Almost all the PPVs between RR 2000 and King of the Ring 2000 were great. A lot of Benoit, Jericho and Angle stuff were on those. Plus, they had that awesome Rock/HHH iron man match. I'm so mad that I accidently taped over it.
WM X7 was great, but like I said in another thread, I have to give it another viewing before I give it legendary status.
I liked Invasion a lot mainly form the standpoint of "Holy shit! I still can't believe this is happening." But it would have menat more if they had kept it Wcw vs. WWF instead of calling it Alliance.
"How about the power to kill a yak from a hundred yards...with MIND bullets?!! That's called tele-kenisis, Kyle."
Rocky versus HHH in a Ladder match Austin versus UT for the title in a match that had no reason to be that good Double J versus a face X-Pac in a good match And the sleeper match of the decade..... Val Venus versus D'Lo in a match that went almost 30 minutes. It was the first match of the show and damn it was good. There was a scary part though, D'Lo was about to do his running powerbomb and slipped, dropping Val on the back of his head similiar to Droz.
This is my FAVORITE PPV. Even though Judgement Day 2000 is a close second.
January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
I was too busy actually watching that match to draw anything elaborate. UT/Orton always shows why the MUGAtaker is such a good old school wrestler. "He can sell- I'll work his arm. His punches suck- I'll lean way into them."
