I fuckin love this match

:heart:

I wonder if TLC 3 exists.

Fangel
02-01-2009, 02:39 AM
I was pissed at the end of that with Rhino helping.

Juan
02-01-2009, 02:39 AM
TLC 3 could've been great had it been on a PPV and not Smackdown.

Fangel
02-01-2009, 02:46 AM
It was on Raw I believe.

Fangel
02-01-2009, 02:47 AM
Anyways dude, I am out.

TLC 4 was on Raw.

TLC 3 could've been great had it been on a PPV and not Smackdown.

It was just as great on Smackdown. I don't get why that affects the match quality. The crowds for TV were just as hot back then, and although it would have been a draw it was a safe bet for TV too. It was a rating booster, and it made no sense to put on a PPV at the time because it was part of the storyline as an obstacle for Jericho/Benoit. It wasn't a payoff or a fued for them.

I dunno, I think it was just as good the way it was. The TLC with those teams had been done a ton at that point anyways, so it was just as safe to put it on tv.

Jeritron
02-01-2009, 03:05 AM
Plus, it was EC, Hardys and Dudleys thing. I think putting it on a ppv with Jericho and Benoit would have stolen a little bit of their thunder unfairly.

Juan
02-01-2009, 03:21 AM
The match was good, don't get me wrong, but from what I remember, it was shorter than other TLC matches. On a PPV they could've gotten more time to work. I may be wrong though, seeing as how I haven't seen the match in years.

Jeritron
02-01-2009, 06:21 AM
It's on the ladder match dvd I have. It's pretty epic. I think it's about as long as any other. I may be wrong too, but I'm pretty sure it was a 20+ minute main event.

Do you buy David Arquette. that fukin entrance dude

Jeritron

Not much happened in "hardcore hell"

Juan
02-05-2009, 03:28 AM

This was the same PPV that had Hulk "Terry Bollea" against Kidman?

Juan
02-05-2009, 03:46 AM
Yeah I think so. In a tables match I believe

Jeritron
02-05-2009, 03:46 AM

thedamndest
02-05-2009, 03:48 AM
Vampiro should have gone over Sting at that point.

Jeritron
02-05-2009, 03:51 AM
Remember when Sting got thrown from the titantron but it was clearly a stunt double? And they played it off like it was a shoot? They were "worried" for him and calling him Steve Borden.
They got a ton of heat for that because it was the same building Owen died in, and only a year later nonetheless.

Juan
02-05-2009, 03:51 AM
WOW. I do remember that now that you mention it. So awful

thedamndest
02-05-2009, 03:54 AM
Vaguely. I think that was when I just read results.

Juan
02-05-2009, 03:54 AM
Vampiro was one of the few guys I marked for in WCW at that time

Jeritron
02-05-2009, 03:56 AM
Vaguely. I think that was when I just read results.

i didn't even do that. i saw it and had it explained to me not long ago

Juan
02-05-2009, 04:02 AM
I would still watch Nitro and the occasional PPV

Jeritron
02-05-2009, 04:02 AM
I'd watch Nitro for the hour before Raw

Juan
02-05-2009, 04:03 AM
I'd do that and then watch it between commercials.

They've really brought down the epic stature of this gimmick match

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:40 AM
Ok, starting now

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:41 AM
Yeah, it'd be fine if they busted it out like once every other year.

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:42 AM
That's sick how they set it up for Jericho to come out to the live music

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 01:42 AM
I actually wasn't into wrestling at this time. I remember when I heard about it, I saw the dvd cover at the store. Not only was I thrilled with seeing Shawn Michaels on a dvd cover, but the concept of the match and the guys in it caught my attention.
I ended up watching it with a friend, and that's sorta when I got back into things.

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:44 AM
Always liked Booker T's theme song and the fire pyro entrance

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 01:45 AM
Yeah, it'd be fine if they busted it out like once every other year.

On top of that: quality control. They just throw random guys in there now. It's one thing if you do it once in a while, to give a push. But the push and the epic nature of the gimmick both mean nothing when you just throw the match and the participants around like it's nothing.
With this, they put it over as something big. By the time they were having them at NYR's, it was awful.

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:45 AM
I should start thread about the grudge i still hold with WWE for de-masking Kane.

Agreed. Raw's EC match this year looks awful on paper.

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 01:49 AM
I think it should only ever be used when you have 6 main eventers who are all in the hunt for the title, and all have a legitimate claim at a title shot.
Then, and only then, the gimmick should be dusted off. And like you said, only once every couple years.

Using it once a year at No Way Out wouldn't even bother me if it was only one of them. Instead they have two on the same card. awful. That undermines what makes the whole gimmick work. Plus it causes them to stick everyone in the match.

If they must use it at No Way Out, I'd rather see there only be one. And have it be for who gets the Wrestlemania title shot for the brand that didn't win the rumble. Cross-brand even.
That way, you'd get some meaning to it, and the 6 spots would be more elite guys from both shows.

Yup. The fact that both titles are up for grabs in this years EC matches makes it rather pointless, since NWO PPV's are always shit.

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:53 AM
I'm glad I don't pay for PPV's because it's pretty obvious that neither the WHC or the WWE title are gonna change hands.

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:55 AM
lol it's so cheesy how they reveal the next entrant

Juan
02-07-2009, 01:56 AM
I'm such an RVD mark :heart:

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 01:57 AM
For instance, this years should be the WWE title shot, and it should be Jericho vs CM Punk vs Undertaker vs HHH vs Jeff Hardy vs Big Show

Then you could still have Orton/Shane, and HBM/JBL

They could use the oppurtunity to have Cena and Edge work matches against uppercard guys, for a nice rub. Or even better have them involved in non-title matches since usually the No Way Out title matches are throwaways anyways.

We need to start disagreeing on something soon. I'm starting to feel like a tool for agreeing with you all the time:$

Nah, great minds think alike

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:00 AM
RVD could've been HUGE in the WWE

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 02:00 AM
It wouldn't be bad for the card, or the stature of the show's titles, to have the three champions in a non-title exhibition match of some kind.
It'd make the ECW title seem equal for once a year. It wouldn't be that bad since it wouldn't have to main event the show on a card that had a star studded elimination chamber for a title shot, and two big storyline matches.

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:00 AM

02-07-2009, 02:04 AM
Kane was epic at this time. I thought he should have held the title for a bit.

This match would have made more sense a couple months earlier when they introduced the World Title, instead of just handing it to HHH wouldn't it?

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:06 AM
This was probably my favorite version of Kane

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:06 AM

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 02:09 AM
I remember hearing HHH's throat was fucked up bad during this match from the RVD spot

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 02:10 AM
lol shawn michaels attire. I remember hearing that they didn't know very far in advance that he'd be in it, and he didn't have any tights available or made up yet. I'm not sure what the full story was, but there was some reason behind this terrible attire.

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:11 AM
I wouldn't doubt it, RVD landed pretty damn hard on him

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:12 AM
lol the shit colored HBK tights

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 02:12 AM

I remember being so pumped before this match at the possibility of HBK going at it with Jericho and RVD

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:24 AM
I was not a big HHH fan during this time.

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 02:25 AM
HHH/HBM fued was damn good. Everyone complained, probably including me, that it hogged the spotlight but it was worthy. Pretty bright spot in a rough time.

Juan
02-07-2009, 02:26 AM
Yeah, I can't take anything away from this HBK/HHH feud

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 02:28 AM
I remember being so pumped before this match at the possibility of HBK going at it with Jericho and RVD

I recently watched the RVD vs HBM title match from a couple weeks after this. Good stuff. And obviously the HBM Jericho stuff that came after this was gold.

HBM coming back was really awesome. It was something fans waited so long to see, and when he did there were a lot of dream matches. I wish he got a longer program with RVD, but the Jericho and HHH fueds were top notch. There were also a bunch of other top matches that happened.

Did Eddie and HBM ever happen? I don't think it did, which is a damn shame. Perhaps they were saving it.

Loved this time period. Then after all of this epic stuff with Kane and Taker, they started to elevate Jericho and Benoit to epic heights. All of the titles meant a shit load, roster was incredible.
Fuck the invasion!

You know, we all talk about how differently we wish the Invasion was booked, but things were so epic at this point I flat out wish it didn't happen.
Maybe a few years down the line, but they had such an epic roster and so many guys worthy of elevating. There were storylines and fueds for years, and the heights they were elevating the titles and divisions too were insane.

I used to always harp that I wanted the Invasion to happen but be better. Now I just wish it didn't happen.

They had already acquired ECW anyways so RVD and Dreamer would have been debuting soon. I'd rather just see what they had going on at this point continue, and maybe an ECW storyline, but not much more.
Sure, there were some great pickups but those could have happened down the line anyways.

I think they had enough top guys, and borderline guys to push here. RVD would have shown up anyways. He'd have been just as over, and he would have gotten a chance.
Jericho would have been the next big push, and gotten the attention he deserved.
Angle would have been continually elevated. Same with Benoit. Even Kane could have gotten a run finally.

There were plenty of other potential guys to push, like Rhyno and Raven, and the singles careers of E&C Jeff and Matt.

I'm also almost positive WWF would have tried like hell to get Booker and a few others from WCW anyways.

I wish it happened more often. Not in such a "we're demoting you" way, but in a "this title isn't the world title, but it means a shitlaod too" type of way.
Kind of like here. It didn't seem like a step down for HHH and Kane, because it was more of a step up for the title.
If they kept it that way, and former champions like HHH, Kane and Angle were trading the belt around, it them would have meant more when non-former champions were winning it here and there (before they had been elevated).

Jeritron
02-07-2009, 03:28 AM
Sort of like the US title in WCW. Even with all the stuff they did wrong, the US title always was pretty high in stature. Guys like Bret, Sting and DDP were always fueding for it between world title programs.

One of the coolest things about this fued was that it was like a gang war. They were great wrestlers, matches, promos, and title fueds, but the fact that it was portrayed like a gang fight every night was pretty badass. They'd just beat and ambush eachother all over the arena all night, with sledgehammers chains and chairs.

I love a good cut and dry wrestling fued, but this is brawling at it's best. 4 great talents in a great storyline.

Remember when Sting got thrown from the titantron but it was clearly a stunt double? And they played it off like it was a shoot? They were "worried" for him and calling him Steve Borden.
They got a ton of heat for that because it was the same building Owen died in, and only a year later nonetheless.

I never saw this and never heard about it, but it seems completely tasteless.
Is it on YouTube?
