Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So after using my new RATINGZ! system for some of the top matches of the year, here's what I got for them:

Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk ER 2012:
W/R: *1/4
P/S: *
Storytelling: 1/2*
Crowd: 1/2*
LOM: 1/4*
Personal Enjoyment: 1/2*
Overall: **** (down from ****1/4 I slapped it at before)

CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho WM28:
W/R: *1/2
P/S: *1/2
Storytelling: 1/2*
Crowd: 1/4*
LOM: 1/4*
Personal Enjoyment: 1/2*
Overall: ****1/2 (up from **** I slapped it at before)

W/R: *1/2
P/S: *1/4
Storytelling: 1/4*
Crowd: 1/2*

Taker vs. HHH WM28

W/R: *
P/S: *1/4
Storytelling: 1/2*
Crowd: 1/2*
LOM: 1/2*
Personal Enjoyment: 1/4*

Total: ****

1) Punk vs. Jericho WM28
2) Bryan vs. Sheamus ER
3) Punk vs. Jericho ER
4) Taker vs. HHH WM28
5) Brock vs. Cena ER

Interestingly enough, despite initially feeling that Jericho/Punk ER was better than it's WM counterpart, when I dissected it and graded each category, Punk/Jericho WM comes out on top and as the MOTY. I still do enjoy personally Punk/Jericho ER more, but looking at it as objectively as possible it's interesting for me how it turned out that the WM match was better. Brock/Cena went down a bit but I still do love the match and how brutal it was. I honestly think it's one of those matches where a rating doesn't do it justice, and it's just on a different level because of how unique and brutal it was.

But yeah, may as well do some more Punk matches while I'm at it:

Punk/Del Rio SVS2011:

W/R: *1/2
P/S: *
Storytelling: 1/4*
Crowd: 1/2*
LOM: 1/4*
Personal Enjoyment: 1/4*

Total: ***3/4

Punk/Ziggler November Raw:

W/R: *1/2
P/S: *1/4
Storytelling: 1/2*
Crowd: 1/2* (Can't remember the crowd from the match that well as it's been awhile and Punk/Ziggler have had several matches since, but I think they were great)
LOM: 0
Personal Enjoyment: 1/2*

Total: ****1/4

Punk/Ziggler RR:

W/R: *1/4
P/S: *
Storytelling: 1/2*
Crowd: 1/2*

P/S: *

Also... just remembered I wanted to do the Taker/Show matches from 08:

Taker vs. Big Show NM08:

W/R: *1/4
P/S: *
Storytelling: 1/2*
Crowd: 1/4*
LOM: 1/4*
Personal Enjoyment: 1/2*

Total: ***3/4

Taker vs. Show CS08 (put it at ****1/4 on last watch... let's see if this changes that ):

W/R: *1/2
P/S: *1/4
Storytelling: 1/2*
Crowd: 1/4*
LOM: 1/4*
Personal Enjoyment: 1/2*

Total: ****1/4

I'm gonna skip rating SVS because I haven't watched the match since it aired... and I don't want the series spoiled for me.

But I think this post has been long enough. I'll probably go through HHH's 2000 PPV matches... well the ones I remember well enough/have seen recently enough.

I'm watching you...
