Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Just finished watching Undertaker vs Ambrose. It was a good match and wasn't a squash like you might expect, and Ambrose got a decent amount of offense in and controlled parts of the match. There was some false finish moments and Ambrose gets a low blow in on Taker when The Shield are distracting the ref, and hits a sweet DDT for a near fall, but then, Taker out of blue locks in the Hells Gate for the victory. The Shield then immediately beat down Taker, Taker tries to make a comeback, but gets speared through the barricade by Reigns and gets triple powerbombed through the table to great heat from the crowd, there's also some ''you tapped out'' chants to Ambrose which is funny.
I assumed Taker would be gone after their match on RAW, but it's a pleasant surprise to see Taker working some TV matches, especially on Smackdown which was always his show, working with young talents in The Shield is a great honor for them and it helps establish them more. Not many young, up-and-coming talents can say they've faced The Undertaker. I'm not too fussed that Ambrose lost, I don't see how people can complain about it, they're all bound to lose eventually and who better to lose to than Taker?
