DAT NEW THREAD. Last thread was cool, but clearly got gassed quickly.
Hell in a Cell 2012
Alberto Del Rio vs Randy Orton - ***1/2
Team HellNo vs Rhodes Scholars - Tag Titles - **3/4
Kofi Kingston vs The Miz - Intercontinental Title - **1/4
Antonio Cesaro vs Justin Gabriel - US Title - **3/4
Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara vs PTP - **1/2
Big Show vs Sheamus - WHC - ****1/4
Eve vs Layla vs Kaitlyn - Divas Title - **
CM Punk vs Ryback - HIAC for the WWE Title - *3/4
ACK. So this is a two match show (one match show, depending on what people think of the opener). Show/Sheamus is the still FUCKING TITS, and I really enjoyed Orton/Del Rio. They really like for Orton to hit his RKO from outta nowhere, and he did here, with Del Rio missing his signature enziguri and Orton catching him on the way down.
Everything else is so meh. Cesaro is of course really good - dat uppercut. Divas match had some fun things in it, but that fucking story they had. SHOOT ME PLEASE.
I totally forgot about the Cena/AJ scandal. Sweet Jesus that was terrible. Remember this?
So, we discussed the gimmicks PPV idea near the end of the old thread and pretty much agreed that HIAC having it's own show pretty much kills the idea, and 2012 was pretty much the icing. It was unfortunate for WWE that Cena got hurt, because Cena/Punk inside the cell was probably to be the big blowoff match, but instead Cena went down and so heroically gave his spot to Ryback.
Cena/Punk/Del Rio is easily the best HIAC match on any of the HIAC events. Show/Sheamus is easily the best non-HIAC match from any of the events.
That wraps that up. Thinking about watching the Rock/Austin Wrestlemania trilogy.
