Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I was so fucking hyped for that Cell Match.... Fuck you Ryback.

When you really sit and think about it though, Punk-Cena kinda REALLY blows Rock-Austin out of the water all things considered, I mean let`s compare shall we ?

MITB 2011 >>> WM XIX
SS 2011 > WM X-7 (OPINION, REMEMBER)
NOC 2011 >>>>>> BL 99
RAW 2/13 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> WM XV
RAW 8/11 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Anything else they've done.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Okay so i rewatched the most polarising match of 2013 so far.

Rock vs. Punk
Royal Rumble

I have watched this three times now and after being told by my friend to watch it again and appreciate it's greatness i just can't.

It's awful. The structure or actually lack of is just too eye opening to ignore, it's like they were ready backstage, knowing what they were going to go and do for the biggest title match in a long time and then were told not to do their original plan but not told what to do otherwise. They looked lost out there. I LOVE Punk and i appreciate what Rock has done in the past and was hoping for a clash of styles type of match, i got nothing of the sort.

The ending is god awful (Michael Cole "THE SHIELD, CHIODA IT WAS THE SHIELD!!!!!!1!1" was just so loud and unnecessary, seriously Cole, check out JR's reactions to big events and take notes)
Rock having the authority to have his match re-started was outlandish (Kayfabe i know)

Urgh i couldn't hate this match more

DUD. DUD. DUD.

Backlash '99 is better than both IMO.
That's a fair summary. While the feud was happening in those years, I actually wasn't a huge Rock/Austin mark. Years later though, I've come to appreciate their matches and feud very, very much. Without a doubt, the biggest box-office feud/matches in WM history and they have alot better chemistry than I noticed back in those years. As far as match quality, the only ones who top them are HBK/Taker. And to be honest, Rock/Austin aren't that far behind. Their matches were that good and their chemistry was that great. Business wise, they were the best, bar none, won't get any argument from me there. Hell, when you have 3 WM main events, you're doing something (VERY) right. Kudos to those guys. Unfortunately, I doubt we ever see another Rock/Austin ever again.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It was below average at best until all the shenanigans started happening, then it just went to a new level of bad.

Oh well, I guess we were just spoiled by Punk's epic reign that we had to be let down some time, it's a shame that The Rock was the one to end it and not somebody like Cena or Sheamus but what can you really do ?

Rock-Austin have the two AWESOME matches and not much else after that to be honest, whereas Punk-Cena have four matches that I would call classics and another handful of GREAT matches as well.

You're so right. I wish JBL had knocked his ass out.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Totally agreed, EverWolf. That awful ending took it do dudsville especially. Their effort at EC is at least passable though. Not great by any means though. What a disappointment.

Michael Cole is Bobby Heenan compared to Jerry Lawler, who should be euthanized immediately.

EDIT : We're not alone Alim, as Cody and Cal love them some Wrestlemania XIX as well. Cody pretty much believes it's nothing special IIRC.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

At a crossroads right now where I want to start going through a year of wrestling through one brand. My options for myself are Raw '05, Raw '04, Smackdown '03, Raw '97 or Smackdown '02.

Of course I'll also have to find said season once I decide. Also plan on going through ECW but '08 and '09 are all on Hulu Plus which I still have, so I don't have to worry there.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Those are some good options. If you're a big time BROCK mark then go with SD 2003, but if not... Then do a coin toss between RAW 2004 and RAW 2005. Actually... they're all good so just look at what's on tap or throw a dart at a dartboard to choose randomly .

RAW 97 has SHAWN ON COKE though. Smackdown 2002 has THE SMACKDOWN SIX. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

This is true. Thanks to the grand scale it is received on. Hell of an electric atmosphere. That's about it for me. 28 minutes of it, yeah, I tend dip in and out of my interest while watching it.

1st post in here. Lets see if I can make it to nearly 2000 again.
