I cant believe that WWE has AJ Styles and Jinder Mahal is their champion. This is why I don't watch current WWE.


In Topic: Bret Hart vs Diesel (WWF Survivor Series 11/19/95)

I watched the Rumble match between them which I hadn't seen before and thought it was a really good match but with 2 restarts and a no contest it wasn't exactly the ending I was hoping for, but lucky for us we get another match here which is by far their best match together and with no restarts and no interference and the NO DQ stip, this match could finally kick it into top gear.

 

There is so much in this match it would take forever to describe so i will keep it short.

 

- Vince and JR did a fantastic job on commentary, along with Perfect chipping in.

- Bret is the best I've seen in big man vs little man matches.

- Diesel, take a bow, this is your best match ever. Selling was top-notch.

- The table spot was awesome, so unexpected.

 

I thought the finish made Diesel look silly but at least it was clean and the post match was great.

Not a favorite match of mine but two that come to mind as far as quality matches go are

 

Valentine vs Santana 3/17/85 MSG

Backlund vs Buddy Rose 11/25/82 Spectrum

 

I think Steamboat and Vader had a decent one in wcw as well.


In Topic: Shawn Michaels vs Davey Boy Smith (WWF Monday Night RAW 03/06/95)

Fun fun fun. Really enjoy watching these two.***1/2 Shawn at this point I would think would remind fans of Ziggler right now, just a guy that bumps with no substance, no reason. It's a really good throwaway match that you can do once in a while but at some point either you evolve into a main eventer or you get stuck in the midcard.

 

I'm mentioning Ziggler because I can imagine him vs the Bulldog here. The difference is Shawn evolved into a great main eventer, whereas I can see Dolph having this sort of match every week but not getting anywhere.

FANTASTIC MATCH, This could be arguably, the best match Davey Boy ever had. His matches with Bret are very good but he seemed to be on another level here. He's not the smoothest wrestler like Shawn and there are always some brain fade moments in his matches but those mistakes looked very minor in this match.

 

I actually didn't mind the headlocks because it was after some big moves and therefore he was further weakening Shawn so it worked. The surfboard spot looked great and painful, I thought Shawn was going to get his arms ripped off.

 

Just when everything was going well........the finish happened. What was this. I'm not sure if Earl was supposed to stay down so Perfect could count or if Owen was to grab Earl instead of Perfect. I don't know but it's a minor issue that didn't ruin the match. Post match was great too. ****1/2
