Meltzer rates everything that sucks super high.

re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Lord Meltzer gave it ****1/2 iirc.

I in my view don't think it remotely deserves the (obviously ignorant) universal praise it gets outside of the WF, but it too doesn't deserve the drizzling shits reputation around here either.

punk/lesnar
orton/bryan noc
shield/rhodes bros. battleground

It needs a WHC match too so idk
Well they put HHH/Lesnar on the Thy Kingdom Come blu ray so they'll probably drop that for the Cage match. The Elimination Chamber match is pretty much a lock though. It's been on every set the past two years. They like their gimmick matches. I completely forgot about AJ/Kaitlyn, yeah that will make it too for the Divas to be included. Great match so that's ok.

Yeah I didn't like it whatsoever. It's just a lazy battle of finishers with no sense of direction or story whatsoever. In the beginning it was submissions and rest holds, then it's all over the place with no real climax, it just keeps going and going with the same shit. It's a DUD for me.

Yea he gave it over **** I think.

They used a ring rust story because Punk had been off for a while, they needed him back to sell a PPV in Chicago, and Jericho was the only credible Main Eventer not engaged in a feud.


I really liked it the first time I saw it, but on rewatches it got worse and worse, the hot hot crowd tricks you when you watch it live and are psyched to see Punker back in action.

I think I gave it **3/4 on my 3rd and final watch. Not horrendous, but not up to snuff for 2 guys who put on an absolute masterpiece at WM28.

21-1: Thank you Taker for 20+ years of busting your ass to entertain us fans. You were truly a one-off, there will never be another even remotely like, the DEADMAN. R.I.P The Streak.

I think I'll still give it a go. I do enjoy hot crowds. Were they as hot during it as they were at MITB 2011?

re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Same rating as cjack here. It's not bad, but it relies just on fun and crowd, but you'll love it if you enjoy those finisher fest-like matches you see from Davey Richards. But it was surely a dissapointment. WM 28 rocked, Extreme Rules rocked. Hell, they had a (at the time) MOTYC the night after RR this year. Oh well.

And no, not MITB hot. ER hot at best. At the beggining, it's actually kinda dead.

re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Kurt Angle & Davey Richards are ATF's two favorite wrestlers. It's SO obvious.
