Interesting how Christian essentially has had the same name since the beginning of his career. Matt Stryker and Edge provide commentary over this match. The video quality if of course pretty awful. It’s tough to tell what’s even going on considering you’ve got two blonde wrestlers fighting. . Solid basic match for two guys who were so new to wrestling at this…

I will finish up disks two and three in a couple weeks as next week I will hopefully have some sort of write-up on my AIW experience.) Before we begin this review, it’s story time. In the spring of 2005, I was not watching professional wrestling. At a minimum, I would check out the websites just to see what was going on. One day, the story about Edge and Lita’s affair came out. So much intrigue. Edge cheating on his…

Rock was super popular. Taker was the leader of the Corporate Ministry. Taker attacks the referee…
