reposting this as I posted it like 2 minutes before the old thread closed



Money In the bank 2013 review

Match #1: Antonio Cesaro vs Damien Sandow vs Cody Rhodes vs Dean Ambrose vs Wade Barret vs Fandango vs Jack Swagger

So we open up the PPV and Fandango and Ambrose get jobber entrances, HEYY THE REAL AMERICANS ARE HERE! Zeb cuts a promo on Philly thats probably true, love the Betsey Ross should have sewn a taco on the flag line, so funny . Cody and Sandow cut a promo, feels lackluster after Zeb's but still pretty funny nonetheless. I've seen this a few times already but I love the teamwork by the RA and the Rhodes Scholars in the beginning, GO CESARO! Swagger has really grown on me recently, learning from a great like Cesaro must be why, I mean, the guy got a GOOD match out of the fucking Miz. Why is Fandango in this BTW? Dude is nowhere near the level of EVERYONE else in the match, put like, REIGNS in there instead, then you have 3 teams and...Wade Barett . Love the use of the ladders in this, they basically use it the entire match, things like Suplexes and DDT's onto the ladders are a constant presence in the match, and it makes the match much better. Wade Barret almost wins at one point, I remember watching this live I actually got worried, but Fandango pulls off an awesome move, I MISS THE SUMMER . The Dean Ambrose spot is pretty cool but why did he have to botch it? Still pretty cool I guess. Its so when the RA try to get the briefcase without the ladder, but even more worthy when Rhodes breaks them up. A this is awesome chant breaks out, and it certainly is. I love the multiple cross rhodes rhodes does, so awesome! In the end Sandow turns on his best friend, not as meaningful due to him not even getting a title out of it, but still an awesome match nonetheless. ****

CAL SCALE: 5

Match #2: The Miz(sucks) vs Curtis Axel(also sucks)

Oh dear, I cannot remember for the life of me how bad this is'. mean, its gonna be bad, but if I'm lucky it'll be like ** or something like that. Why is Wade Barret not getting a rematch? God I know I watched WWE this summer but cannot remember shit apparently, well this doesn't matter at all so whatever. Thank god Heyman isn't wasting his time with someone like Axel anymore, but he does need a new cient besides Lesnar, Sandow maybe? Axel is laugahbly bad when he yells in Miz's face "I'm the champion!"okay Curtis, whatever. I never got the Miz getting Heyman ejected, can we say WORST FACE EVER! We want Heyman chants begin, Vince is in the back laughing at his fans misory of course. God this is so bland, just boring brawling between two of the worst performers in the company, feels like it lasts a million years long too, really bad match. *

CAL SCALE: 0

Match #3: AJ Lee vs Kaitlyn


I remember this not living up to the PB match at all, but from the SD clip they played Kaitlyn is so fucking bad on the mic, worse than Axel I think. God that butterfly belt is so fucking ugly. Cole talks about how Kaitlyn has no friends, but Lawler chimes in about how hes friends with her on Facebook, of course you are king . Well this was another bland match, and a big letdown to me, better than the IC title match but that is no compliment of course. I enjoyed the PB match but found this to be boring besides the awesome spear and the black widow. **

CAL SCALE: 0.5

Match #4: Ryback vs Chris Jericho

This is the last PPV match to date for Y2J, sadly, its against one of the worst workers in the company, remember this being laughably bad, tempted to slap a NO on it, ah whatever I’ll watch it. CRYBACK! CRYBACK! really not looking forward to this. God this show was booked horrendously, putting three filler matches in a row, dont forget the terrible Brad Maddox segment. This gets WAY too much time, feels like 4 hours but I think it ended up being like 15 minutes in total, crowd is DEAD as shit for this and I dont blame em at all. GOLDBERG chants begin, their pretty annoying because his gimmick is NOTHING like Goldbergs . So this was the fucking worst match of the night, no contest, might be my least favorite Jericho match of all time, no joke. Fuck you Ryback. DUD

CAL SCALE: 0

Match #5: Dolph Ziggler vs Alberto Del Rio

Wow huge pop for Ziggler, forgot how over he was at this time, pretty painful when you think about it because now nobody seems to give a shit about him. Of course their PB match is amazing, ****1/2 and my #2 MOTY, 1st is Punk/Lesnar so for a couple months it was in fact my MOTY. Crowd is pretty hot for this match it seems, not suprised consider was so over at this time. One thing I dont like about this match is the fact that they play up the concussion angle again. Really? I'm pretty sure that the concussion is gone 2 months after it happened. ZIggler still stole like a fucking boss though so its okay. Del Rio actually gets some solid heat in this match at some points, trust me I'm not lying rewatch the match. As good as the beginning portion of this match is good the middle portion is quite dull, pretty unfortunate but its still a good match nonetheless. I completely forgot about the ending to this match too, its so bad its not even funny. Fuck the ending, but the match was pretty solid nonetheless. ***1/2

CAL SCALE: 3

Match #6: Mark Henry vs John Cena

Oh this match was a solid MOTYC all year long, think it ended out at #8 or some shit like that. Of course the buildup to this was with that retirement tease, such great shit. Did they ever have other matches? So pretty pumped for the rewatch here, but I wish that Henry won, because Henry as WWE champ = . Henry is pretty dominant early on in this, not too surprising I guess but weren't there some folks that said this made Henry look weak? If so, it must be for the finish alone. Henry is carrying the shit out of this too, not a BAD match by Cena, but Henry is main it fucking great. Another BIG lift for Henry by kicking out of the AA, if he just lost by pin it would have been fine, its the tapping that bothers me. However, despite these complaints, the match is holding up so well. last 5-10 mins of this are so , crowd thought there was ZERO chance that henry would win and he made them fucking believe it. Really good match but the ending made it lose at LEAST 1/4*, but besides that its a great match, brutally underrated as well. ****

CAL SCALE: 5

Match #7: RVD vs Christian vs Sheamus vs CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton

I basically haven’t seen this before, stream was fecking terrible and I just never got the time to rewatch it, but looking forward to it here. BIG pop for RVD of course, I used to be a big fan of the guy but I've gone down on my opinion of him, still think hes pretty good but not GREAT. Love the beginning of the match where they all just beat the shit out of RVD. thought it as always shitty that Kane never got replaced BTW, they just ignored that and moved on with 6, BOO! Punk and Bryan confrontation was so as well, crowd knew the hisory behind it too, which was pretty awesome. Interesting that theirs no ladders or shit early, because its so different than the opener, which was ALL ladder spots it felt like. RVD finally gets some offense in and the crowd goes insane, Philly always seems like a hot crowd it seems. RVD botches a move early too, crowd doesn't seem to notice and just get hotter for the guy it seems. This match makes me miss Sheamus, because this was his last PPV, gonna be looking for the spot where he gets injured. OH SHIT IT JUST HAPPENED, that shit looked PAINFUL! Stupid RVD hurting better wrestlers, not even 10 min into his return no less. Fella is still being so awesome in this, WHILE INJURED no less. pretty fun match so far, not getting the hate at all here, oh yeah because BOO HOO D-BRY LOST! Crowd honestly thought Bryan was gonna win but AXEL interferes? what? bah, thats so dumb. Then the Heyman interference that everyone saw coming I think, and Punks out as well. In the end Orton wins and the WWE has been going down ever since he won the title. Decent match, third best MOTN. ***3/4

CAL SCALE:4

TOTAL CAL SCALE: 17.5

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Post-SummerSlam was pretty good with the Authority forming and everyone was enjoying it. It only started going downhill from Night of Champions with the vacant angle. But it has picked back up since Survivor Series and I can only expect it to get better in the upcoming months.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

the string of bad PPVS is what troubles me, so much that I'm afraid that if I order the rumble then it might blow and then I just wasted 50 bucks

I ordered all three summer PPVS and was happy with my purchase each time, rare that that occurs

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

WWE started going down ever since Summerslam. Not because of Orton, but because of stupid nonsensical programming that made no sense.

"Yes, I can hear you Clem Fandango!"

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The authority storyline was good after SummerSlam when Orton joined them, the nonsensical stupidity didn't happen until after Night of Champions which is when things really started going downhill.

And smitty, there's something called streams. If you're not sure about the PPV quality, you use those!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It was far too early to start anew. I give the last thread a solid ***1/2. Maybe less because we didn't have enough EVAN and too much :jpl

Guys please go watch Smackdown. Both Shield matches and the tag title match were really really good.
