Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Of course it is, unless you have some sort of blind disdain for the guy. Easily one of the best WWE Produced DVDs actually, in running for top 5 IMO.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

'Taker/Mankind was a great series of the worst matches ever'

WHAT???? Forgive me for jumping the gun but sorry that is utter utter bullshit. Those two guys clicked instantly and had some of the best matches of The Undertaker's career, which was a feat considering it was right after his shitty 1995 period with his 'classics' against King Kong Bundy and Kama.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I found Cena/Punk NOC to be the same old shit really. **** match imo but tbh, I could care less to re-watch it. I think Cena/Punk got burned out by the time they had their finisher fest of a RAW match.

And while we're on the topic of Taker/Makind, damn there was this match I really liked. I don't know exactly from which event but one of the spots was Mankind diving head first into a table.

Some other things, gonna check out the Orton/Taker series first thing in the morning. Download Flair/Kerry Hawaii as well. Never saw any of their other matches but it's the only XWT-Classics had and it seems to have a lot of buzz so why the hell not?

Oh and i think we can all agree on Punk's DVD being the best of the year.

I'm trying to determine my MOTY but there's just something about 2012 that that seems so mediocre to me. There's been quite a few **** matches but none of them really stand out as memorable or scream "Classic" ten years from now. None of the D-Bryan/Punk matches are classics imo. Will they be rememred as good wrestling matches? Of course. Will they go down in history? Probably not. That is key in determining MOTY for me.

I just really don't find 2012 to have a match that really stands out. Maybe HBK/Taker and Punk/Cena spoiled me and I just expect too damn much these days.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^^^That's the match from Revenge of the Taker in 1997. GREAT match between Foley & the Dead Man.

I guess I wasn't the only guy here confused by the statement made about "best series with the worst matches" quote. It really did leave me wondering what they meant by that.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I would say Taker/HHH is the standout match of this year and 10 years down the road people are going to regard it as an all time classic just for the simple fact that it restored some credibility into the HIAC match type seeing as how the last few have totally bombed because of the gimmick PPV. They showed that you don't need to have blood in that kind of match. All you need is a good story and two fantastic workers (and guest referee).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Night of Champions 2012

The Miz v Cody Rhodes v Rey Mysterio v Sin Cara
-- Not my cup of tea. Basically a collection of moves. Some looked cool, some looked like shit. Best part was the exchange between Miz and Cody. Sin Cara is awful. JBL on commentary helped. If they do Cara/Rey at Mania it could blow.

Kofi Kingston & R-Truth v Daniel Bryan & Kane
-- This was seriously entertaining. Not a whole lot to it in terms of actual in-ring work but the Kane/Bryan shtick was a ton of fun to watch. HUG IT OUT + I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS > anything Kofi and Truth have ever done.

Antonio Cesaro v Zack Ryder
-- Dug this quite a bit as a showcase for Cesaro. His moveset is swanky and Ryder's comeback was good too. Never paid much attention to Ryder as a worker before but he seems like the type of guy who's good at eating offense, taking a beating and timing his hope spots/combacks. Cesaro's uppercut JBL had a great line about bicuspids.

Dolph Ziggler v Randy Orton
-- Good match. For whatever reason I couldn't get into it as much as I wanted to but everything they did was sound and the finishing stretch was great. Liked how Dolph avoided Orton's DDT twice before Randy finally hit it on the outside. The barricade bump by Ziggler right before that was awesome. Nice finish too.

Layla v Eve
-- Why was Layla smiling constantly at the start of the match? Assuming it had something to do with her character. Anyway, on to the match. It was actually legitimately good. Eve was a total bitch in it. Best divas match I've seen in ages. If I had to choose between re-watching this or the IC title 4 way I'd pick this every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Sheamus v Alberto Del Rio
-- Another good match. I wasn't paying full attention at all times but I could tell it was good. By the time the finishing stretch came around I was completely into it. Really starting to warm to Sheamus as one of the best workers in the company. His babyface turn has been a huge success.

CM Punk v John Cena
-- Excellent main event, just like their other two PPV matches. I can understand people not liking the finish and/or thinking the finishers were overdone but it all worked fine to me. Maybe could've done with one less GTS since Punk busted out the Rock Bottom too (which was pretty fucking awesome and got a huge reaction) but whatever, I saw it as them both wanting the win so badly that nothing was enough to put away the other guy. They have great chemistry. Heyman added to it as well. Has Cena ever done a suicide dive before? That was cray. This is probably the weakest of their PPV trilogy but that's not a knock on it because all three of them are fantastic.

Thought this was a great show. Liked everything on it except for the opener and Punk/Cena was the GREAT match it needed to go with a bunch of good/fun matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

A divas match over a 4 way with Cody Rhodes? Sin Cara gets 100% of the blame.

I should stop talking about it and download the show this instant.
