Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Also not a fan of Punk/Del Rio. Saw them at a live show... just after SS I think it was (maybe before... but I'm fairly certain Punk was champ. It was November anyway) and it was fun due to the more interactive antics and shit they can do off camera, but the in ring work wasn't anything special.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd argue that Punk's hottest streak of his career was hotter than just about 99.9 percent of every WWE superstars streak in history, in terms of match quality + promo quality + hype + overall interest from the fans , Punk's hottest streak > Cena/HHH/HBK/Orton (well, no contest there ) , etc.

lol, I always forget about this match for some reason, despite the fact it's Christian's title win. Okay, that match is Del Rio's best match (at **** like you), followed by Punk/Del Rio.

Generally, I'm not a fan of Punk/Del Rio either and would struggle to rate any of their other one on one encounters at more than *** if even that, but SVS worked for me.

I'm watching you...

But it was only one month. Everything after SummerSlam was completely irrelevant.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's funny to me that the two hottest streaks of Punk (2009 and last year) both started in June, ended in August, and both ultimately put down (by storyline and/or matches) by Undertaker and HHH respectively. Though HHH in 2011 had Nash's help for the first half of it. Taker had to do it all by his lonesome.

Fuck dem' old guys.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If I were to argue, Punk's hot streak ended @ HIAC 2011 when he jobbed to Del Rio without any outside help for Del Rio (in a Cell Match0 , so essentially clean. After Summerslam he was still molten hot because everybody thought he was going to be involved in a COMPELLING storyline that got him back to the title scene, and the loss vs Trips didn't hurt him at all IMO, because it was all a part of the storyline.

When HIAC went off the air I was like "Yeah... They fucked him up" . I swear that this title reign is an APOLOGY from WWE to Punk for fucking up his momentum in order to get Del Rio heat and the HHH-Nash feud started. There's NO fault to Punk on that one.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I love Punk, but this run of his but completely and utterly stale in every sense of the word for MONTHS now. Alot of it is writing and booking, but that's what hurt other wrestlers run with the title as well. It all counts. And this has been a bad period for quite some time now..

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Funny thing is Del Rio ended up getting no heat.

I'd say his hot streak was up until the night after NOC in all truthfulness. When he apologized and then became your standard cut of the mold PG-era babyface... that's when Punk's hot streak was dead.

I'd say it was declining though from Summerslam to Night of Champions.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've got Punk/Del Rio at ****. I like Del Rio's ring work and I thought the match had nice emotion and a good crowd.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If CM Punk/Paul Heyman weren't on RAW , it would be the worst wrestling show of all time right now. Dead serious when I say that too. Cue the "It's alweady the worst show ever!" rage

Seriously. Take CM Punk off of these shows, and who the fuck else could they use to fill the time spent on him ? Orton ? Fuck no. MORE CENA ? Fuck no. Young Guys ? HA. YOUNG GUYS? Since when does WWE promote the up and comers ? MORE DEL RIO/BARRETT/KOFI/TRUTH/ALL OF THE OTHER SHITTY TALENT? No thanks. Punk gets a ton of TV time because he's the champion, the number 1A guy in the company, entering the undisputed biggest feud in the company and one of the most hyped matches ever.

Give every single person on the roster as much time as Punk on Raw, and tell me how it works out
