    Mayweather vs McGregor

    Meet the Press Slam with Loss

    Sorry to say, I am a bit of an audiophile, so with it not being mixed correctly I'm unable to listen which is a shame.

    Meet the Press Slam with Loss

    Just to let you know, this episode isn't mixed correctly so I'm only hearing Charles through my left earphone, which makes listening at work impossible as I only keep one earphone in.

    [2000-06-05-WCW-Nitro] G.I. Bro vs Billy Kidman

    Kidman losing on TV 6 days before facing Hulk Hogan on PPV. WCW everybody. 1/2*
  9. Thought this was such a well laid out, simple match. The key to all this was give people enough of Brock vs. Braun to whet their appetite, but not to give them too much. This was such a match full of bombs and big moves. Engaging all the way through. It left me wanting to see Braun vs. Brock. Excellent. ****1/2
  10. Really great opener. Some convincing near falls that the crowd bough, and a nice Frye/Akiyama tribute trading strikes. I was worried that Gargano forgot about selling the arm during the match, but right on cue he started selling it again. Johnny Gargano may be the best babyface in the world right now. I enjoy Almas' work more than many, and he held his own in the match. The finish was the distraction from Almas' manager at ringside throwing a t-shirt at Gargano, which was a little bit cheap for my liking, however, it plays into Almas' character. ***1/2

  14. Great TV match up, got more than I expected going in. Really faced paced match, with Danielson bumping around for Cade's Clotheslines. Michaels and whomever he was calling the match were both awful, including Micheals calling an Asai Moonsault an Enzuigiri Moonsault, but I can forgive him because he's Shawn Micheals. Cade laid in some stiff chops during the match, which I enjoyed. Finish was a HUGE Chokeslam with Cade winning the TV Title. ***1/4
  15. A super fun MSG Cage Match between Rude and Piper. Rude was on top form here bumping around, hanging from the cage, bleeding, dropping a giant knee from the top of the cage. It was the Rick Rude show. A different spot than the norm was both guys touching the floor at the same time, and the referee ordering the match to continue. Rick Rude's ass was hanging out for the latter half of the match, which the version I GIF'd was thankfully pixelated. Heenan was involved during this, slamming the cage door on Piper and passing Rude brass knux, which led to the finish. ***1/2
  16. I really enjoyed this match as it was an excellent example of how a heel team (Rose & Wiskowski) could get the heat on the faces (Sheepherders). This was a 2/3 falls match, the The Sheepherders winning the first fall. The story throughout was the heels attacking both Luke & Butch so they couldn't take out even when they were on offence as the partner was selling on the outside. I loved Rose in his mask with hair stitched in as a result of losing a hair vs. hair match to Roddy Piper a few months earlier. The heels won the second fall, and what was interesting they were interviewed for 5 minutes and cut a promo on the faces of Portland saying they were going to run them all out of the promotion (Piper, Sheepherders, Martel etc.) The finish was a DQ when Ed Wiskowski brought a chair in to the ring. What happened after the match was really fun as the heels continued to beat down The Sheepherders until Piper made the save, what was especially fun was that Piper couldn't protect both Luke & Butch at the same time so Rose & Wiskowski kept getting cheapshot's in. Eventually they even managed to beat on Piper resulting in huge heat from the crowd with fans trying to attack the heels. Great post match. ***1/4

  18. I didn't mind this at all, it had all the ingredients for a good paced TV tag match. Power Company got the heat on Skipper, but looked like geeks with the constant bumping in to each other etc. Still, it held my attention for the duration of the bout. Jindrak is green, but some of his punches were cringe-worthy. Nice to see Elix Skipper land on his feet from a Top Rope Dropkick. *3/4
  19. Going in I didn't have super high hopes for this given it's 2000 Vader and I really felt he had declined from being a top tier working in his heyday. The match overall was better than expected. The Chokeslam on the table near the start of the match was brutal. I enjoyed the closing moments of the match including the Armbar from Akiyama. I particularly liked the finish where it was Vader's hit the final Chokeslam and Akiyama couldn't raise kick due to Vader's sheer weight over his chest and shoulders. ***1/2

    [2000-03-26-AJPW] Jun Akiyama vs Takao Omori

    Very nice to see All Japan doing a quick match, which was still really good for what it was. Really exciting and the crowd loved the finish and didn't feel short changed at all. Too short to put a rating on, but a really fun 3 1/2 minutes in total.
  21. First of all I loved this match! The star of the show was Kentaro Shiga who was an awesome undersized babyface, who would take a beating, sell and get great hope spots in. All four guys worked hard and constructed a really enjoyable tag team match with great structure and story throughout. Kobashi and Akiyama going at it throughout the match, with Akiyama hitting multiple Exploder's to wear down Kobashi at the end was really fun to watch. ****
  22. EZ Money was one of those late ECW guys that was firmly locked away in the "average" folder in my brain. After seeing him here I was wrong to think he was average, I think it's his name that I don't like, it's so low rent sounding. Really good TV match, which was sightly hurt by the interference. EZ Money looked great and could hang with Tajiri in this. Good open sequence and the match flew by. Both were able to showcase their offence, including a great looking submission by EZ. **1/2
  23. Sloppy as hell in places, always feel bad when a botch causes a large(ish) crowd to laugh. 3 Count work far better as a team than Riley, Pair and the unrecognisable James Storm. *1/2

    [2000-06-19-WWF-Raw] Edge vs Chris Jericho

    A forgettable match between Jericho and Edge bar the nice Spear spot on the outside. Sloppy in places, as they tried a roll up spot once and didn't execute it, but covered it up well. They went for the same move a few minutes later and it worked. The match could have done with slowing down a tad to give the high impact more move and allow each to sell a little more. *3/4
