So just watched Lethal/Dutt.

Just like Dominick on a Pole being Rey's idea, it was So Cal Val's idea to put herself on a Pole here. What a stupid feud this was - "I'm so sick of you fighting over me, I now resent the both of you and want to GTFO of this situation. I know, I'll offer myself as a prize in a wrestling match and be locked into marrying the winner!"

Despite that, this was largely a really good ladder match. There were a couple of really cool ladder spots I'd never seen before - the low blow especially, also the neckbreaker on the bridge and the camel clutch on the top. Dutt took a ridiculous back body drop too. Shame the slingshot idea hilariously failed. But as a midcard ladder match, and a very, VERY poor man's Jericho/Christian/Trish, it was pretty fun.

Whoever nominated it (I want to say Jayfunk) I'd love to hear their thoughts on it.

Yeah there's no way that match can compete with HBK/Jericho.

No I agree, it still loses to Jericho/Shawn. I haven't seen that in forever but I dont want to watch it now without watching the entire feud. All I remember is the finish, and the fact that I liked it a lot, plus it is the blow off to such a great feud and yeah.

I am interested to see it again now knowing that "this match is terrible and Shawn is the worst wrestler in the world in it" actually exists as an opinion.

Wrestling fans: The best and worst the internet has to offer.

Not counting porn of course.
