His humor falls flat and histiming seems off, which could also be the fault of the writers for the DVD.-For fans who were hoping to see the Michaels v. RazorWrestlemania X match will only get about a minute or so of clips, same goes for the Wrestlemania 16 Triangle Ladder Matchbetween The Hardyz/Dudleyz/Edge & Christian, sucks about those two though. There are interviews done with Shawn Michaels,Jeff Hardy, Edge, Gregory Helms, Chris Benoit, Kane, Shelton Benjamin, Ric Flair, Johnny Nitro and Joey Mercury.-StampedeWrestling 79 for the North American Heavyweight Title, Jake Roberts vs. Big Daddy Ritter (JYD): A bit of a shock here to say theleast, not a very good one though. Its joined in progress about 5 mins. theres not very much action and what little is there is reallydull. Its over shortly after that, with JYD winning the title. Like others have said watch once and forget its one here. 3/10.-I.C. TitleMatch, Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart: From a house show in Portland, Maine, the very first WWF ladder match is a good technicalbout, with very few uses of the ladder. Bret goes shoulder first into the ladder, Shawn gets slingshotted into the ladder in the corner.The finish comes when Bret dropkicks Shawn off of the ladder over the top rope and out of the ring, Bret then climbs the ladder andgrabs the belt to retain the title. 7/10.-Summerslam 95, I.C. Title Match, Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon (Champion): Once againnot their Wrestlemania X match, but the Summerslam 95 rematch. Both wrestlers put on a great show with lots of good spotsthroughout including Shawn taking a vicious hit when Razor suplexes him to the outside and Shawns ankle hits the guard rail. Alsothe ladder gets pushed and Shawn falls and honestly looks like he blew out his knee. But even after that theres about 10 moreminutes of great back and forth action and the finish sees Shawn counter the Razors Edge, sending Razor to the outside, Shawn triesto grab the belt but slips and sets the ladder back up and grabs the belt to win. 10/10.-Summerslam 98, I.C. Title Match, Rock(Champion) vs. HHH: Begins with the DX band playing Triple H along with Chyna to the ring and The Rock comes out with MarkHenry at his side. Some good spots include Rock continous working over of Hunters knee, with a chair shot while Hunters kneewas wedged between a ladder. Also some great chair shots from Hunter to Rock, while Rock is under a ladder. The match itself isgood, just not great but it does tell a good story of Triple H overcoming a heel Rock to end the Great Ones title reign of almost 8
  3. 3. months. The finish comes when Chyna low blows the Rock and he falls off the ladder, which allows Triple H to climb the ladder andgrab the belt for the win in. 8/10.-No Mercy 99, Terry Invitational Tournament Final, New Brood (The Hardy Boyz) vs. Edge &Christian: The finals of the Terri Invitational Tournament, figure out the double meaning with that one. Starts out a bit slow, whichis to be expected. Both teams use the ladders in many different ways. The crowd was way into the match especially after Christianran up a ladder and hit a dropkick on Jeff while he was in the corner. It stuns me that Jeff is not severely injured after some of thestuff he does, especially when he leapfrogs the ladder and hits a huge legdrop on Jeff. Also when he jumped off the top rope, hitanother ladder into the faces of his brother and Christian, ouch I say. Finish comes when Matt knocks Christian and Jeff off of oneladder but Jeff lands on another ladder knocks Edge off and grabs the money at the top of the ladder for the win. 9/10.-Summerslam2000, TLC I Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship, The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian (Champions) vs. The HardyBoyz: The best of the TLCs cause it was the first, plenty of great spots throughout this one, Jeff does his usual insane Swanton fromthe top of a ladder but crashes and burns through a table. It seemed like the Hardys were on their way to winning in their home stateof North Carolina but Edge and Christian were able to pull out the win in the very first TLC match. 10/10.-Starrcade 2000, ShannonMoore & Shane Helms (Gregory Helms) vs. Jamie Noble & Evan Karagis vs. Kaz Hayashi & Jimmy Yang, winner gets acruiserweight title shot: Great, great spotfest here, virtually nonstop action by all six men. Some of the spots include Helms hitting ahuge swinging neckbreaker off a ladder, Karagis hitting a huge bodyslam off of a ladder. A sequence of flips and dives to theoutside, by most of the competitors, that was very well paced. Helms and Moore both win when they pull down the contract, so bothmen receive a crusierweight title shot. 9/10.-Royal Rumble 2001, I.C. Title Match, Chris Jericho vs. Chris...Read moreWas this review helpful to you?| Comments (7)58 of 62 people found the following review helpfulOne Of The MostInnovative Matches Of All Time, May 10, 2007ByD.P. (California)-This review is from: WWE: The Ladder Match (DVD)Its amazing how a simple concept for a match (climb up a ladder & grab the belt) has spawn so many memorable moments in thehistory of professional wrestling and WWE picked out a wonderful collection of matches here to illistrate how the ladder match hasspawn off so many memorable to classic moments in wrestling & was also the catalist for so many versions of this match includingTLC, Stairway To Hell in ECW, and King Of The Mountain in TNA.North American Champion Jake Roberts vs. Big Daddy Ritter(Junkyard Dog) - This was joined in progress and it was using a one sided ladder with the referees holding it steady while thewrestlers climbed up. Nothing special past the historical factor.Stampede Wrestling 79Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart vs.Shawn Michaels - Two years before the more famous ladder match between Shawn & Razor Ramon would happen at WrestleMania,the very first ladder match in WWE history happened here. Both men went away from their usual strategy in matches of wrestling &were brawling more with Sherri becoming a distraction from time to time. The ladder was used as a weapon here with Shawnramming it into Bret while Shawn was later given a slingshot into it. It wasnt anywhere near the standards of this type of matchtoday but the purpose here was just to show the concept of the match which it did achieve.July 92[Greatest Rivalries: Bret Hart vs.Shawn Michaels]Intercontinental Champion Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon - The "forgotten" rematch from WrestleMania X thatwas very different than their previous encounter as the "behind the scenes" story about this match was revealed years later in thatthey werent allowed to use the ladder as a weapon here.Razor took the fight to Shawn by first suplexing Shawn from inside the ring straight to the floor & then focusing heavily on his legafter pushing the ladder down causing it to be trapped inside the ladder followed by punishing it by stomping on his leg wedged inthe ladder & dropping Shawn onto the ladder leg first.Shawn was able to dish out the punishment himself by back-suplexing Razor off the ladder &throwing him so hard into a ladder in the corner that he flipped over the top rope while also using the ladder to execute big moveslike a moonsault & an attempt at a big splash but unfortunately was also on the receiving end of a Razors Edge off the ladder.A second was brought into play leading to one moment where both men fell off the ladder & crotched on the ropes.Im glad they put this one on here as it didnt disappoint & lived up to the hype & expectations based off their previous ladder match.As a side note, if you want an idea of how comical WWF was back in 95 then watch Shawn Michaels entrance when they have a
  4. 4. guy trying to sell you his merchandise at ringside (ala Home Shopping Network).SummerSlam 95Intercontinental Champion TheRock vs. Triple H - Just a couple of notes before the match but the DX band played Triple H & Chyna to the ring, The Rock debuteda new version of his "Nation" theme while Mark Henry was in Rocks corner, and Triple H was coming into the match with a bad legbased off an attack earlier in the night.Both men started out in the ring before the brawl continued into the isleway with Triple H being thrown into the ladder leaningagainst the ring.Triple H swinging it into Rock followed by driving it into his ribs before Rock recovered & went right to work on that bad leg withstomps & elbow drops before using the ladder to wedge the leg & stomp on it along with using a chair to hammer the ladder intoTriple Hs leg.Rock was ruthless by dropping Triple H onto the ladder leg first before Triple H was catapulted & backdropped onto it various timesbefore Rock eventually dropped a Peoples Elbow with Triple H on the ladder.The Rock & Triple H just have that natural chemistry that carries over into each match & this was no different in a classic qualitymatch that told a great story.SummerSlam 98[The Epic Journey Of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson]Edge & Christian vs. New Brood(Hardy Boyz) - This was the not only the first tag team ladder match in WWE history but also the finals of a series of matchesbetween both teams called the Terri Invitational Tournament (which allowed Jerry Lawler to have so much fun with the initials) inwhich the winning team would gain an amount of money & her managerial services.Gangrel was ejected from ringside early on in the match allowing this match to be straight up between both teams with them havingso many highlight moments such as Jeff being backdropped over the top rope all the way to the middle of the isleway, Christiangiving Jeff a reverse DDT off a ladder, Edge powerbombing Matt off the ladder, Jeffs missle dropkick off the top rope knockingEdge off the ladder followed by a swanton bomb on the ladder, Christian on the receiving end of a legdrop off the...Read moreWas this review helpful to you?| Comments (23)
