TLC is tonight, right? Not that I'm going to even touch it. Maybe the Sheamus/Show match at a later date, but for now, another one for me to completely skip. (even though the lack of Punk should be enough reason to watch)

TLC has potential for some fun matches. Ziggler/Cena ladder could be good, Show/Sheamus might make the chairs stip work, 6 man tag TLC has potential for tremendous fun, tag tables match could be entertaining if Sin Cara doesn't botch everything. Doubt anything is gonna be a MOTYC, but the card definitely screams FUN to me.

Really?

We're getting Cena/Ziggler and the 6 man TLC match which is no doubt going to be total arnage and you're saying there is absolutely no reason to watch TLC tonight? Dean Ambrose's first WWE match?

Oh and of course Sheamus/Show is going to be a war.

Tonight's PPV should be lots of fun.

I just have zero reasons to care about the product until The Rock is back. I might give those matches you mentioned a watch later on but I'm definitely not going to spend 3 hours on the whole thing. And yes, the number of fucks I give regarding the Shield stands at 0.

Just watched the "End of an Era" Cell match at Mania.... I don't know how you guys exactly feel about it on multiple watches, but it hasn't held up as well.... AT ALL. What I once perceived to be "the best storytelling I've seen in a long time" looks like a TON of pretentiousness. It's fucking brutal as hell and the atmosphere SCREAMS epic, but I just don't know about this one. WWE will tell you that this is the match of the year for years to come, but I just don't see it at all. More of an "experience" than a match really. Don't get me wrong, the match is still awesome because of a TON of circumstances (brutality, GOOD storytelling though a little pretentious and over the top, big time atmosphere) , and I'd throw **** 1/4 at it , but for the people throwing the full five at it? C'mon man..

Watching Punk-Jericho @ WM now to see how the two compare. I know that the live crowd OVERWHELMINGLY loves the end of an era more (because like I said, it's almost an experience that was MEANT for the live crowd), but there's a large smattering of people who love the Punk-Jericho encounter alot more. Let's just see what I think about this....

Yeah, second watch for Taker/HHH HIAC didn't hold up as well as the first one. I bumped it down to ****1/2. But I also say the same thing about Punk/Cena at MITB. Both matches were epic when I first watched them (live, not in arena, but on stream of course) but second watch felt underwhelming both times.

I don't see the problem with people doing that. I personally do not have it at five stars but I can see people doing it based on the storytelling alone of this four year arc. If this was the last match of Taker and HHH's career it would have been perfect to END IT with what they accomplished here.

I'm also a little biased because I was there to experience it (not just watch it) live.

Finished re-watching Undertaker/HHH and Bryan/Punk. My top 10 of 2012:

10. Sheamus Vs Big Show - Hell in a Cell - ****
09. Austin Aries Vs Bully Ray - Final Resolution - ****
08. CM Punk Vs John Cena - Night of Champions - ****1/4
07. Triple H Vs Brock Lesnar - SummerSlam - ****1/4
06. Austin Aries Vs Bobby Roode - Hardcore Justice - ****1/4
05. Sheamus Vs Daniel Bryan - Extreme Rules - ****1/4
04. John Cena Vs Brock Lesnar - Extreme Rules - ****1/2
03. CM Punk Vs Chris Jericho - WrestleMania 28 - ****1/2
02. The Undertaker Vs Triple H - WrestleMania 28 - ****3/4
01. CM Punk Vs Daniel Bryan - Over the Limit - ****3/4

THE STREAK IS OVER! PUNK WINS! PUNK WINS! PUNK HAS JUST ENDED THE UNDERTAKER'S STREAK! No, not his WM one, his MOTY one. Since 06 Undertaker has been #1 in my WWE MOTY list. Well, its finally ended. Still adore the HIAC, but there is just something about the OTL match that I love even more.

Honourable Mentions:

Bully Ray Vs Joseph Park - Slammiversary
Austin Aries Vs Bobby Roode - Destination X
James Storm Vs Bobby Roode - Lockdown
Sheamus Vs Daniel Bryan - Raw Street Fight
CM Punk Vs Mark Henry - Raw (first of the trilogy)
William Regal Vs Dean Ambrose - FCW

Looking back through my ratings these are my only ***3/4+ matches from WWE this year. To be fair I haven't watched the Sheamus/Show matches, most TV matches (except for Punk/Danielson), and the Punk/Cena NOC match. I've also only rewatched a few of these matches so there ratings might go up on a rewatch. I better burn through some must watch matches before the year ends.

CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho - WM - ***3/4
CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan - MITB - ***3/4
Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Damien Sandow vs. Christian vs. santino Marella vs. Tyson Kidd vs. Tensai - MITB - ***3/4
Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler - NWO(?) - ***3/4
Undertaker vs. Triple H - WM - ****
Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk - OTL - ****
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus - ER - ****
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho - ER - ****

So... I just rewatched Jericho-Punk RIGHT AFTER HHH-Taker and I've come so one simple conclusion ; These two are incomparable. Seriously, these matches are just SO fucking different that it's impossible to look at one or the other as the better match. Depends on your personal preference really, they're both great matches so take your pick. Jericho-Punk was a LITTLE worse this time around , but I still have it in a DEAD HEAT with Taker-HHH as the MOTN. Jericho-Punk is more of my style as far as I'm concerned, so I'll give the nod to Jericho-Punk. The "big three" of Extreme Rules is up next.

Current rankings ;

1. CM Punk vs Chris Jericho (WM XXVIII) : **** 1/4
2. The Undertaker vs Triple H (HIAC ; WM XXVIII) : **** 1/4

ON ANOTHER NOTE ; I thought about this a few days ago and it's stuck with me ever since... WHY DIDN'T ORTON GET A FEUD WITH PUNK OVER THE LAST YEAR ? Seriously, when Cena went down before HIAC, we should have just had Sheamus & Show in the cell while having Punk-Orton be a non-cell match. Survivor Series main event would be Punk vs Cena vs Orton ; DON'T YOU THINK THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BETTER ? Fuck, I wanna see that match now. Punk-Orton deserve another feud to be honest, loved their 2011 shit.

If Orton doesn't get a title shot or some sort of good feud going into Mania, then I don't know what the fuck they're doing with him. Here's a guy who's one of your better workers in the company, and a guy who is fucking third in merchandise sales overall giving your company a ton of revenue...... And he hasn't had a real "feud" since October 2012. Pathetic treatment of one of your top stars, same goes with Bryan.
