Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

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 ?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Batista/Trips series:

WM - ***1/4
BL - ***1/2 (haven't seen in ages though)
Ven - ****1/2

Considering that I really enjoyed the feud, I was a little more invested in the first part of the series.

TRIPS/Batista Ratings

WM **3/4
BL ***1/4
Ven ****1/2

To pile onto the punk point, I've never personally been so excited about a time period in wrestling since the Summer of Punk in 2011. The buzz around the product was something I hadn't seen in years. Punk was everywhere, it was the hottest storyline the WWE has had in years and of course they fucked it up.

I hate that it had to turn into HHH/Nash. The storyline should have gone on and continued up until WM where Punk goes through all these hurdles beating everybody HHH puts in front of him. Finally leading to Face/Tweener Punk vs. Heel GM HHH. Would have been massive, culmination of Punk's shoot promo leading to the WM main event with Trips, hell add stephanie at ringside.

The anti authority rebellious face/tweener CM Punk vs the Dominant heel GM with stephanie at ringside. Punk vs the New Age Mcmahons

The perfect WM main event and they pissed it all away.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I always believed the true culprit of why Punk never got a real payoff with Trips was due to the fact that Rock-Cena was announced a year in advance. In doing that, WWE basically fucked themselves horribly and it was basically a case of "OH SHIT, we can't make Punk the focus of the show because Cena needs to main event Mania against the Rock" thus meaning that alot of what Punk did took a backseat despite his buzz being at a level that 99.9 percent of wrest;ers will never come close to.

If Rock-Cena doesn't happen ; Punk-Trips or Punk-Cena main events Wrestlemania.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just searched far and wide for you man, can't find anything... Fucking WEIRD considering how that match should be really popular. I think you can get it on WWE.com if you're living in the United States... If you aren't than Fuck WWE for not making their videos available to the world (from a Canadian's point of view).

Watching HBK-HHH from the Royal Rumble right now, and I think WAAYYY differently of it now than I did the last time I saw it.. IS IT A GOOD THING OR A BAD THING ?!?!?! .... SUSPENSE. Ugh.... Really not looking forward to watching that god damn cell match tonight, even though I really like the match. I got like four hours so I might be able to get this things completely done tonight... We'll see

The Helmsley-Foley feud in 1997 is MARKDAFUCKOUT. I adore and give all of their PPV matches from that year ****. LOVE LOVE LOVE all of them. Foley is Triple H's greatest opponent by 289 miles. WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION....

Who are these guys's best opponents (in terms of match quality) ?

Hulk Hogan
Randy Savage
Ric Flair
Steve Austin
The Rock
Chris Benoit
Eddie Guerrero
Triple H
Randy Orton
John Cena
CM Punk
The Undertaker
Chris Jericho
Shawn Michaels
Kurt Angle
Brock Lesnar
Big Show
Rey Mysterio
Mick Foley
Batista

I can't think of anybody else ATM .... I'll post my response to my own question (WOW) when somebody else replies first

I found this video but the quality is not that good, and whoever uploaded it put the wrong date on it lol.




Anyway, you're big Taker mark, why the hell don't you have the Anthology set?


btw, this is my review on it:

Spoiler for Brock/Taker HIAC:
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker
HELL IN A CELL for the WWE Championship
WWE No Mercy 2002




“THIS IS THE NEW PHENOM! One that will ANNIHILATE YOU! DESTROY YOU! HE CONDEMNS YOU TO HELL!!!

Deadman, Rest … In … Peace …”
Paul Heyman


Undertaker and Brock Lesnar came into Hell in a Cell with such a personal animosity for one another and this is where it all culminated in sheer brutality. That's what this match type calls for and how it should be used in the WWE. They ran with the storyline of Lesnar and Heyman threatening Undertaker’s pregnant wife and I think that took Undertaker’s character to a more vulnerable level emotionally which we had never seen before or since. The internal struggle Taker had to go threw in the build up with his family being brought into a scandal instigated by Paul Heyman and the decimation of his trusty 'soup bone' right hand by Lesnar was the Hell leading into this Cell. Taker had to bring hell to Brock for his family and for himself.

The selling of Undertaker's hand injury has received criticism from some fans over the years that claim he didn't sell extensively enough. I didn't think Taker's selling was a problem at all. I think he did as best as he could sell that he was indeed in pain and that he wouldn't allow a maimed body part stop him from fighting this monster. Every time Undertaker used the hand for a punch he quickly pulled it back in agony along with a pain filled scream - now that is good selling. Tazz and Cole even explained when Undertaker used the hand for a Chokeslam as adrenaline kicking in and that’s enough reasoning for me.

Unlike the first ever HIAC, Undertaker met his match here and then some in the animalistic champion Brock Lesnar. However, Taker was forced to use the old “cast as a weapon” during the match. Because of the cast Taker controlled the first quarter of the fight which had never been done to Lesnar at the time and I don't think has since. Brock felt the pain of the cell as Undertaker rammed his head and raked his flesh into the steel fence.

Lesnar bleeds and Paul Heyman screams! God, Heyman’s voice is so annoying! Classic heel manager that Paul E was. Undertaker makes us all happy momentarily when Heyman mistakenly got his hand stuck in the Cell and busted his head open! I thought that was awesome to feature that payback spot for all the hell Heyman put Taker through. Lesnar being the freakin MANSTER that he is used his brute strength to slam Undertaker into the Cell and followed that up by desperately pulling at the cast to remove the weapon. With the help of Paul Heyman and his belt, Brock viciously struck Taker’s hand with a steel chair until the cast came off. When the cast inevitably came off the match got even more violent.



The two steel stair shots to Undertaker’s skull are two of the most violent stair shots I’ve seen in wrestling. The sound of the stair bouncing off Taker's skull was sickening to hear. Undertaker’s created one of the most grotesque scenes ever with his blade job. Absolute carnage was Brock's domination. Lesnar was put over so huge it's ridiculous.

The "crimson mask," his exhausted facial expressions all help make his babyface and peril performance in this bloodletting look astounding. What I've always loved about Undertaker's selling in the last decade is how he portrays a beaten down man whose will to fight to the very end won't die even when his body does.

The Tombstone countered into the F-5 is a phenomenal finish and the best way to end the match proving to everyone at the time that NO ONE is like Brock Lesnar. No happy endings here. The monster destroys the legend.





**** 3/4

What a hellacious performance from both men in one of the greatest Hell in a Cell matches ever.


Much gratitude to
CHAMPviaDQ
