^Highest rating I've seen for Punk/Bryan/Kane. I'll have to give that a watch.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

TLC 6 man tag could be chaotic glory and a late MOTYC depending how violent it gets and how impressive they implement the spots. I remember the 4-way ladder match at Armageddon 06 literally coming out of nowhere and becoming of the best matches that year.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yep. ***3/4 is where I have Punk vs Danielson vs Kane from NWO too. Really good triple threat match.

My top 10 off the top of my head will be:

1) John Cena vs Brock Lesnar ~ Extreme Rules ****3/4
2) CM Punk vs Chris Jericho ~ WrestleMania 28 ****1/2
3) CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan ~ Money In The Bank ****1/2
4) CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan ~ Over The Limit ****1/2
5) Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan ~ Extreme Rules ****1/4
6) The Undertaker vs Triple H ~ WrestleMania 28 ****1/2
7) CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan ~ RAW 1/30/12 ****1/4
8) CM Punk vs Mark Henry ~ RAW 4/2/12 ****
9) Sheamus vs Big Show ~ Hell in a Cell ****
10) Christian vs Drew McIntyre ~ Superstars 5/31/12 ****

Punker or Danielson for WOTY. Probably Punk gets the edge since, lets face it, he's still on top. Sheamus wins my WORKHORSE OF THE YEAR award. Only name that seems fitting. The amount of awesome, consistent matches weekly & on PPV has been excellent. Only one manages to make the top 10, but most are well worth a watch. Now people know my top 3 for wrestlers in WWE during 2012.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Top 100 Raw moments DVD is worth a look if you have some free time , did feel like every other moment was a DX/McMahon moment. Also some of the fan shots were a bit cringe worthy.

Top for 2012

Cena/Brock (ER) ****3/4
Bryan/Sheamus (ER) ****1/2
Punk/Bryan (OTL) ****1/2
Punk/Jericho ( ER) ****
Punk/Jericho (WM) ****
HHH/Undertaker (WM) ****
Punk/Henry (Raw) ***3/4
Punk/Bryan/Kane (NWO) ***3/4

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My thoughts on the NOC 4 way when I watched it live:

"Personally thought the four way was a load of shit. Looked waaaay too choreographed for the most part, and most of it turned out shitty."

-- 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.
Glad to see Eve and Layla getting the praise they deserve

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Danielson has done nothing to be called WOTY. I don't even know why the Observer gave it to him in 2010 and 2011 considering that he worked nothing but 3-4 minute matches and odd 10+ minute match here or there. Other than that he did nothing to deserve the award imo.

It should go to Punk. Simply because he's been in the main event, well the 'main event' the entire year and has consistently delivered on PPV.

Oh and speaking of top 10 matches, don't expect Taker/HHH anywhere on my list. I'm one of the few who has it at ***1/2. The match reminds me of Flair/HBK. Lots of emotion but not a good match overall.

I mean we complain when Cena and Orton barely utilize the cell yet we give HHH and Taker a free pass? Come on guys, let's call this down the middle. They probably used the cell twice and most of the match was spent in the ring. This match could have easily been a NO-DQ and no one would have been able to tell the difference. The cell was just non-existent.

I need to re-watch the Punk/Bryan series. I'm not a fan of just pure wrestling (gotta have dat story!) so just letting you guys know I may not be too high on OTL like most. Maybe I'll download a PPV pack from XWT so I can re-watch matches like Sheamus/Bryan and Lesnar/Cena. Damn, I know for sure ER is PPV of the year. Sheamus/Bryan, Punk/Jericho and Lesnar/Cena all took place on that PPV. Plus, Orton/Kane was fun while it lasted. That PPV really stands out to me, to this day.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I too am a fan of that Eve/Layla match. Eve was fucking awesome in it. Some of the best "character work" I've seen from a female wrestler.

Gonna go watch Undertaker/HHH and Bryan/Punk (OTL) now so I can put my top 10 MOTY list together. They are both tied at #1, need to see if I can separate them.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The story telling of Eve/Laya really got to me. Damn, some of the best character work I have seen from any wrestler, male or female, in recent times. That and the psychology behind Eve working the ribs and just laying in that body scissors. As JBL said "If you're gonna lay there for 30 minutes dong that to get someone to tap out, that's what you do!" Then the finish was just perfect.

It's a solid ***1/4-***1/2 match.

Such a shame the fans in attendance had to be such dumb cunts chanting "Boring"

Can't forget the few morons on this place as well who didn't even look at the match but were the first to judge with their "Bathroom break!" comments. Honestly, Eve/Layla tops that spotfest of a match Beth and Natayla had on SD. And it's not really a spotfest but the match was nothing but each girl wrapping each other up in submissions. Not to mention Beth's no selling of the sharpshooter by just getting up afterwards like nothing ever happened.

Eve/Laya is definitely 2012's most underrated match.
