RATINGZ FROM DA LAST FEW PAGES
WM XXI (Trips vs Batista) : ***
BL 05 : *** 3/4
VEN 05 : **** 3/4 (MOTY)
LOVED this series. Wrestlemania was a bit blah.... But Backlash and the whole "Pedigree" storyline was just BOSS.
In regards to the whole issue regarding Punk being a top 10 GOAT, I forgot to throw in my original post that this was all opinionated and none of this is based on what the general public or internet public believes. Fuck, Punk isn't top 50 for alot of people, let alone top 10. I'm willing to bet by the end of his career though, he'll be rated as a top 20-30 great, as WWE seems to really love his presence in the company. I completely understand that Punk isn't really for everybody (besidesChoke2Death
, he loves him some PUNK) , and that a TON of people will go down in history as better than him. It's 100 percent opinion and I thought I should have cleared that up a little better
In terms of Punk at his hottest (regardless of how long it lasted) , I still believe that he had more buzz and hype around him from pipe bomb-summerslam 2011 than Cena/HHH/HBK/Orton have had in their careers. I mean, this shit was on News Stations around here.... That's UNHEARD of nowadays. I can't think of one thing that Trips/Cena/HBK/Orton did that outside and even INSIDE the general wrestling fan base that generated the most hype. Almost in a sense that people never said "DID YOU SEE WHAT JOHN CENA DID ON RAW? HOLY SHIT WE HAVE TO SEE THIS?" as much as they were hyping the MITB 2011 storyline and the "pipe bomb". This is coming from somebody who likes Hunter MUCH more than Punk too, trust me. I'm also a fan of the other three I listed, it's just the buzz around MITB 11 and how many people I know personally who got back into the product because of it is ridiculously insane.
Trips is 8-8 @ Mania, but besides his first match he's never been under .500 , which is why he needs to get DAT WIN BACK over whoever he faces at Mania this year. He better compete, or I'll cry for days more than likely.
ANYWAYS... HOW'S EVERYONE'S PROJECTS BEEN COMING ALONG ?
