Brock/HHH gets *** from me. And I tried watching it a couple of weeks ago and ended stopping shortly after Brock took off the gloves. Just got way too boring for me and maybe it was because I worked a long day, but I just couldn't get into the match at all. I'll attempt another viewing of it at some point maybe next week... or within the next few months... years... I'll try to get around to it sometime this decade.
I do admit though, I still mark for Brock taking off the gloves. It's just too bad-ass for that match.
Edit: Also, I don't get the ragging on HBK's acting in the cell match. Of course for me, it always goes back to the fact 99% suck at acting outside of their one character (which even then they may be bad at), so HBK's acting didn't stick out from the pack in WWE. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't truly good, but for WWE level acting it was fine.
Would anybody else here seriously consider RAGING if they put Rybotch over Lesnar @ Mania ?
It would seriously be one of those things that could cause me to take an exile away from the current product.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
^^^^^ Because if there is no measure of objectivity then all we're doing is discussing opinions, which isn't bad by any means, but there's nothing to hold things together because it's all opinion. In order to have a discussion like that you need at least some sort of factual basis to work off. Or maybe that's just my law degree kicking in lol. DAT FACTUAL BASIS 4 EVERYTHING DURR.
Thoughts on this?
From 4.00 up until around 8.30ish. Interesting stuff from Show. Just wondering if people here agree/disagree with what he's saying about 'dips' in tag matches and the like. The whole thing is actually worth a listen imo. Great interview.
Trips will eliminate Brock in the Rumble. DAT REMATCH HYPE.
List of people who I wanna see Brock work with before he's gone for real (in order of importance to me):
1. Sheamus - The guy's a fucking workhorse and he's the perfect size to face Lesnar. Power vs. Power, it'd be be pretty damn awesome in my eyes. I'm imagining Lesnar taking a Brogue Kick that breaks his nose or some crazy shit like that. STIFF! Make it happen!
2. The Undertaker - I don't have to say anything here, do I?
3. Triple H - Their Summerslam match was nothing like I expected. It was good in terms of psychology and physicality but lacked in the shock factor that made the Cena match so special. I'd have no problem seeing a rematch where they just slug it out with some Attitude Era like brawling. Cena/Lesnar with a mixture of Punk/HHH.
4. The Rock - This is a question mark in terms of how the match would play out but it's interesting enough to make me wanna buy a PPV for it. Perhaps Mania?
Honorable Mentions: (these are all guys I'd like to see him go one-on-one with but realistically I don't think will ever happen due to factors such as size, their position on the card, or importance to the company)
- CM Punk
- Daniel Bryan
- Randy Orton
- Mark Henry
You'll notice John Cena nowhere near my list. That's based on the sole fact that their match this year was just so incredible I don't think it should ever try to be recreated or insulted by the idea of a rematch.
