Greatest since 1997 to never be in a HIAC ? Bret Hart, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio, D-Von Dudley , and the list goes on.....

Guerrero was never in HIAC either, and he proved himself in blood filled hate matches.

Benoit probably would have been in a HIAC at some point had the Elimination Chamber not come around. They would have probably done some more 6 man HIAC matches inside.

I don't really consider modern (post-2008) HIAC matches real HIAC matches but definitely Benoit

I don't consider any of the matches that have taken place at the HIAC PPV real HIAC matches tbh. The whole concept of putting a match like that on PPV annually is so ass backwards and retarded. I hate it. HATE IT.

As a huge fan of both guys, my opinion:

In-ring - Punk.
Mic - Punk.
Face - Edge easily. Punk has never been a great face and Edge could play the role so naturally, just look at his work in Edge and Christian, his time from 2001-2003 and his final few years as a face. Much better. Face punk feels forced.
Heel - Tie. Edge in 2006 was better than anything in Punk's career, but Edge as heel in 2007/2008 I wasn't as big on. Punk's SES work and current work makes this a tie for me imo.
Character - Edge. His Rated R superstar in it's prime in 2006 was better than anything Punk's done, as previously said.
Feuds - Edge. Edge/Cena and Edge/Matt Hardy I enjoyed more than Punk/Jeff Hardy or Punk/Cena.
Look - Edge without question.

I agree. From the HIAC PPV, the only feuds that needed a match with that structure were Orton/Cena and Kane/Taker. Both lengthy feuds that had been going on for quite a while. The most retarded of them has to be this year with Ryback and Punk, though. It's Ryback's first PPV main event and he's in a freaking HIAC? How ass-backwards is that?

They really do need to stop with Gimmick Match PPV's. RR is perfect and will likely always be around while the company is still going. EC doesn't bother me at all because at least it makes the RTWM that bit more interesting when you aren't quite sure who is leaving the match champion, or #1 contender if they go that route. The rest can fuck off. At least they already put an end to Fatal Four Way . Get rid of HIAC for sure, and TLC. If they insist on another gimmick PPV, use the Scamble match as one. I liked that concept. Plus its more of an EC use of a gimmick which I'm ok with. They can do a tournament leading up to it to decide participants or something, then have the title match. No need to create some random arse feud and then throw them into something like HIAC just because that happens to be the next PPV. Scramble match works fine for the random match booking WWE likes these days.

I really wish they would just scrap all these gimmick PPV's. All they do is destroy the well built legacies of everything around them. The Chamber PPV has really weakened the Rumble, MITB has all but ruined the world titles, HIAC has ruined HIAC and lets not forget the ever perilous FATAL 4 WAY MATCH ZOMG THE HORROR!!!!! I hate that WWE seem so perfectly content with destroying the very foundations of what made them successful in the past. Fuckers.

The only "GIMMICK" PPVs really left are TLC and HIAC , no question. Minor ones would be NOC (every title must be defended) but it's not a problem at all, Extreme Rules (Every match must have extreme rules of some sort, serves as a feud extender from Mania) , Elimination Chamber works as it's just NWO with a different name, NWO is just one cage match main event which isn't a big deal.

HIAC is my least favorite PPV of the year and for good reason. TLC is usually just a fun show that has no real seriousness to it at all.

The only current gimmick PPV I like is TLC. Probably because TLC is my favorite match type and we're nearly always guaranteed a good TLC and ladder match. Don't really care for tables matches, and a chairs match can fuck off lol. Elimination Chamber is also an ok gimmick PPV, as the match quality is usually good and they tend to actually use the chamber. Which brings me to the HIAC PPV, yeah that should go. They hardly make any use of the Cell and most of time the feud isn't really as intense to warrant the use of a HIAC. Gimmick PPV's like Fatal Four Way and Breaking Point were just the worst imo.
