Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
'07 had so many injuries spread through the year that it was hard for them to keep feuds going or even start them. There were some nice standout performances but as a whole not much could be done. Plus the Benoit stuff and the huge suspensions that followed after that first drug test in the Summer.
Which lead to Khali becoming World Champion...
First half of '07 owned, imo. Then I just started caring about Umaga, Punk, Murdoch, Cade, Burke and Londrick. And obviously TAKER/TISTA and eventually Orton.
Cena/Umaga at Royal Rumble 2007 was awesome, and you may be right about the first half being good, but after the Benoit tragedy in June and Khali becoming World Champ in July the show went downhill fast.
2009 ruled though. Some idiots only choose to remember Hornswoggle & Chavo crap + RAW celebrity GM nonsense, but on the other side of the coin you had Smackdown, ECW, & Superstars with quality bouts every week. RAW didn't shy away from some good bouts themselves that year. But, ECW & Smackdown. Holy crap they were great.
And that's where are opinions greatly differ because I hated 2009. So much so, to the point where I took a break from wrestling for a month because Orton was boring the crap out of me as the champion on RAW. Worst wrestling year imo.
