What do people around here think about Angle/Edge matches?

A week after the first watch, I've watched it again and this time, with a review~!

Antonio Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn || NXT 13/06/2013
This always has been and forever will be a beautiful combination. I recently watched their match from PWG Kurt Russellreunion 2011 that I believe was posted in this thread, and that was all sorts of awesome. But this rules the world in a much different way. The way Cesaro punishes Zayn before he's even been announced is great, and really plays on the fact that he was embarrassed by Zayn, and when I say punishes, I mean absolutely brutalises. Everything Antonio does has force, venom and purpose and it adds so much to the match. The uppercuts with ridiculous momentum, the stiff punches and the hard as fuck slams, it all means so much. It's no secrete that Zayn, arguably, plays the plucky babyface better than anybody in the world and he shows that once again. The thing I love about him not keeping the mask is that even without it, we get these cartoonish, outlandish facial expressions and they just add so much, and they're not TOO outlandish or TOO cartoonish to seem inappropriate - They're marvellous. They work well to create some very nice spots as well that they can easily call back to in their rubber match (which I presume they will have) and it's exactly what they should do. Just stuff like Cesaro catching Zayn in mid air for the backbreaker, or Zayn's bodyscissors-headscissors from the turnbuckle, it just all adds up to create a fantastic match with a solid story of the proven superstar attempting to avenge an embarrassing loss, whilst the "WWE rookie" tries to prove that it wasn't a fluke.

Overall, this is just one step behind Regal vs. Ohno, but a rewatch of that match could change that. This is comfortably the second best match in NXT history and Cesaro's best match in the company, although it is neck and neck with his match against Kingston on Main Event. Cesaro manages to prove that once again, he truly is one of the best not only in the WWE but in the world, and Zayn proves to any doubters than never saw his indy work, that he's just as good as everybody says he is, and then some. I know Zayn had a lot of doubters, simply based on how much praise he gets from his fans from the Generico days, but this match should prove to all of them doubters that he's simply awesome.

I watched their Backlash '02, Hair vs Hair match, and their cage match from SD! a couple months ago. Gave them ****1/2, ****1/2, **** respectively and people around here seemed to think those were appropriate. I was blown away because I was never a fan of Edge's work.

Backlash 02 was one of the most fun matches I have ever seen. Easy ****1/2 and the most underrated match in both of their careers. Judgment Day was pretty good too, but I didn't think it was on the same level as Backlash. Not the biggest fan of the cage match, but it was pretty good too.

Bruno Sammartino sucks.

YEAH, I'm not going to lie man but that Hardy-Henry House Show match fucking ruled the earth. It's amazing because here are to guys that just excel at working a simple match with simple roles, and they take it into a NO DQ environment and deliver an exciting but smart bout that only uses weapons when needed and not in a gratuitous way. Love, love, LOVE it as Mark & Matt have some ridiculous chemistry that might be some of the craziest/underrated that I've ever seen.

We need more Henry House Show matches in here STAT.

I've seen the hair vs hair match and their Smackdown cage match and thoroughly enjoyed both of them. I remember reviewing both matches as part of my Edge match project some months back - but I can't find the reviews atm.

Admittedly, Meltzer is a pretty consistent critic. Even if he's absurd.

You really get a sense that he enjoys matches packed with a zillion finishers.

He DID give Cena-Rock II *** 1/2
