The Undertaker Vs The Big Show – No Mercy 05/10/2008

Already talked about this series of matches when I reviewed a House Show match between them last week, so I’ll just say that I am super hyped to watch this one again :D. Oh hey, look at the date too! Took place 11 years after the greatest match of all time, which also happened to involve The Undertaker!

So, this is the first time these two men have faced each other in quite some time, and I guess they will take their time and just warm up first, right? As fucking if! Neither man wastes any time with that warm up crap; its big lefts and rights all the way.

Makes a HUGE change from the last match I watched for Undertaker Month, as Big Show can actually fucking move and even RUN at pretty good speeds! 😛

Show always steps it up when in the ring with The Undertaker (as does everyone else, but a lot of the time it’s more noticeable when Show is in the ring with him), and everything he does looks awesome. The body shots, the slams, and one hell of a running shoulder block that turns the Dead Man inside out. You wanna see how two “Big Man” wrestlers have matches together, then you want to watch this match, and the majority of their others from this series. The pace is faster than it has any right being, and the action, while not filled with flippy shit, is awesome.

I’ve mentioned about Undertaker and his opponent wanting to cave each other’s face in quite a lot this last month, but this is probably the only Undertaker feud that’s really ever been based on trying to knock the other guy out with a punch to the face lol. Show did it to Undertaker, and Undertaker wanted revenge big time, so he uses ever opportunity he can to throw a big right hand into the face of Big Show during this match. Unfortunately for The Undertaker, The Big Show’s right hand is bigger and better, and when it hits, it’s over. A couple of those massive shots, and holy fuck, Big Show beats The Undertaker by knockout! In 20 years, I don’t think that’s ever happened.

Amazing to think that this match lasts for 10 minutes, because it feels like 2 or 3 at most due to the fast pace they keep up. An awesome contest on its own, and a great build to their Last Man Standing match a Cyber Sunday. Nothing quite like 2 giants punching each other in the face!
