Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I for some reason generally dislike cage matches and actually get angry when they are booked. There are some exceptions but most are boring to me so I have no interest in three discs of cage matches.

I watched Backlash 2009 again last night and couldn't believe how awful Hardy/Hardy is. I actually disliked it more this time than I did two years ago.

Backlash 2009
10:59 Christian VS Jack Swagger - **3/4
12:33 Chris Jericho VS Ricky Steamboat - **1/4
9:25 Kane VS CM Punk - **1/4
19:06 Jeff Hardy VS Matt Hardy - **
22:49 Shane McMahon, Batista & Triple H VS The Legacy - ***1/4
28:24 Edge VS John Cena - ****1/4

Agreed, I just couldn't get into that match. I loved Cena/Edge though.

All of the matches between Jeff and Matt Hardy stink to one degree or another.

Didn't really dig Raw tonight. Especially the Cena parts. I thought he was growing on me, but perhaps not after all... Raw 5/16 Review!

That Morrison/Sheamus ladder match was awesome.

Did you see his power, Jim Ross? He threw him down like a rag doll!

I thought their stretcher match on SD was pretty great. Not a fan of much else they did though.

Actually, yeah. I wouldn't call it great myself but it was actually very much all right. A weird rare case where a gimmick match brings out some chemistry between two guys who don't have any (against each other) rather than the other way around.

Everything else between them is garbage, though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched the two matches I really wanted to see off of Extreme Rules today.

Punk vs Orton - Loved this match and thought it was great for a match that didn't necessarily have any insane spots. Orton hitting two RKOs and Punk not going down was great and I was actually surprised that the chair around Orton's neck spot didn't end the match as that's usually a huge deal. The ending was pretty cool as well and a respectable way to end it. My one beef comes with the ruling out of the Nexus. I understand they wanted to just have this Punk/Orton, but in a match that has no rules I don't like there actually be rules. Other than that, I liked this match quite a bit - ***3/4

Christian vs Alberto Del Rio - Thought this match was about on par as what I expected and I really enjoyed it. It wasn't top heavy on spots and involved using the ladders as weapons in creative ways. The spot where Del Rio landed on the ladder was nasty and Brodus Clay got busted open bad. The ending was totally understandable because Edge deserved to be in Christian's moment and it served as somewhat of a distraction to keep Del Rio looking strong. Pretty solid ladder match. - ***1/2

And now I'm watching the WM 21 movie trailers off the DVD. They're literally all so funny. I absolutely love the 'A Few Good Men' one with JBL and the 'When Harry Met Sally' one with Angle and Christy. But honestly they're all pretty funny.
