Definitive 2000-2009

2000-2009 DONE!

Posted by TravJ1979, 13 August 2013 - - - - - - · 326 views

Finally! I have first-run watched the entire decade and I'm so glad, because 2009 was a difficult thing to watch. So with that said, I'm going to end/suspend this blog and do my final run through (which will be much more fun/easy as it is only a limited subset of matches) and probably post my "results" in the main forum. The blog di...

So I finished the year of PPV's/big shows (with the exception of ROH as I am completely burned out with that promotion) and about about 60% through TV which I'll be finishing up this month. The plan from here is going to be:Get a Top 10 for both WWE and TNA from the re-watch pile for 2008.TV and PPV for TNA/WWE 2009ROH 2008ROH 2009Top 10's/ye...

TNA VICTORY ROAD 2008MCMG/Curry Man v. Ultimo Guerrero/Rey Bucanero/Averno v. Doug Williams/Alex Koslov/Tyson Dux v. Yossino/Puma/Milano Collection AT - 3rd Round of World X Cup.Great, fun match. Constant action and executed just like TNA wanted I'm sure. I definitely was entertained. If this was 12 TNA guys, it probably would have stunk, but havin...

Thoughts on TNA

Posted by TravJ1979, 21 June 2013 - - - - - - · 180 views

There is a thread on the main board asking if TNA is the worst promotion in history. The thread was started six years ago and I never commented on it. I figured I would post my thoughts here to avoid accusations of trolling because my opinion may not be a popular one.TNA is not the worst promotion in history. In fact, I believe it is better than the sa...

TNA Lockdown 2008Black Machismo, Curry Man, Sonjay Dutt, Johnny Devine, Consequences Creed, Shark Boy - X TitlePin or submission until last two with winner having to escape the cage. Dutt and Shark Boy go out early. Creed looked good before being eliminated. Devine stole Jay Briscoe's Jay Driller calling it the Devine intervention to pin Curry Man....

Final Resolution 2008 (January Edition)Only thing notable about the opener is the reveal of Salinas as the "thug" attacking Christy Hemme. I have an unhealthy love for Shelley Martinez.Silliness throughout the show for the drinking championship between Young and Storm. Was what it was.The rest of the show up to the main event was skippable stuff...

Personal note/Tune in, Tune Out.

I wanted to make a quick post to say that going over 2008 and 2009 is going to be a first time run with the material and I really am looking forward to it. The last PPV I ordered and watched was 2008's WrestleMania 24 and the last PPV's I watched in any fashion was a semi-reliable stream of WrestleMania 25 and then the top three matches from this...

... And on to 2008

I finally acquired 2008 TNA and WWE PPV's to continue this project, and then I remembered I had three ROH shows I had to download and watch before I could. This post will cover those shows.Race To The Top Tournament Night 2- Edison, NJ 7/28/07Honor Nation- Boston, MA 10/5/07Unscripted III- Chicago Ridge, IL 12/1/07Race To The Top Tournament Night 2-...

50 Eliminated matches and another update

Posted by TravJ1979, 17 April 2013 - - - - - - · 189 views

Finally. I just finished the second to last run through for 2000-2004 US. I've also finished up first viewing of US through 2007 and am about to begin what I just finished for the first half of the decade for 2005-2007. I hope to have all 2008/2009 footage available by then.I was able to eliminate 50 matches that made the initial cut through 2004....

Quick Update

For anyone who may be keeping up with this blog, but mostly for my own records I wanted throw up a quick update.It seems I've hit a wall with this project, but I seem to be coming around and finishing up some lose ends.I've finished all of WWE TV (RAW, Smackdown, ECW, etc) for 2007 and about the first six months of TNA Impact!. So far I have...

So I finally finished* 2007 PPV's and big shows. Now I'm finishing 2007 TV surprisingly quick.So my copy of ROH Unscripted III from 12.1.07 is unwatchable so I had to skip it for now and am actively looking for another source.TNA Turning Point 12.2.07Such a bad PPV. The tables match opener was terrible despite having MCMG's and Black Machism...

Glory By Honor VI: Night 1Out of the nine matches on the card, I found four to be standard for ROH. Nothing bad, nothing great, but everything was fine. The top of the class trophy match between Ernie Osiris and Mitch Franklin wasn't good, but I didn't expect more. The other below average was Hero v. McGuinness since Nigel was working hurt. I ju...

ROH Survival of the Fittest 10-19-2007This wasn't a bad show, but compared to the previous three Surivival of the Fittest shows, this was disappointing. The qualifying matches were full of debuting wrestlers such as Karl Anderson, TJ Perkins (debut outside of wrestling as Puma), Human Tornado, and Tony Kozina which, to me didn't make much sense b...

Notes on the last few matches from 2000 that didn't make final cuts.Triple H v. Chris Benoit - Non-Title Match - WWE Smackdown 2.3.00Cool that it is Benoit's first official match in the WWE, but this is short and nothing special compared to many other matches within the year.HHH v. Chris Jericho - RAW 6.12.00These two had better matches against on...

These are all matches from 2000 that were cut after all viewing for the promotions were completed and the reasons why.ECWSuper Crazy v. Tajiri - Mexican Death Match - ECW on TNN 1.15.00I went over this in my last post. CW Anderson v. Tommy Dreamer - I Quit Match 1.7.01I know this was from the year 2001, but since ECW only ran three shows before going out...

After I finalized my North American List for 2000, I thought it would be interesting to look in the Wrestling Observer and see if any matches Dave rated * * * * or higher were missing from my list. Here's what I found.HHH v. Mick Foley (WWE, 2/27, Hartford) ****1/2I am a Mick Foley fan, but as much as he fights against the label of "glorified stu...

Synopsis of recent viewing

As of today, I'm about 1/3 of the way through TNA's October 2007 PPV offering, Bound for Glory. Not much in the way of good so far and most of the focus has been on Karen and Kurt Angle's marriage. It doesn't do anything for me in terms of good matches, but man is Karen Angle one beautiful woman.In WWE land it's Cyber Sunday that is...

Modus Operandi

Posted by TravJ1979, 04 December 2012 - - - - - - · 105 views

I've always wanted to do, or participate in a "Best of" something in regards to wrestling. The reason(s) I had not is due to lack of time, footage, knowledge, etc (excluding two 80's DVDVR projects I simply had to do). After realizing if I were to do something in that regard myself, then I wouldn't have to deal with any deadlines and...
