Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I enjoy Punk/Bryan far too much to give it anything under ****1/2 but personally have it at ****3/4. Thought it fucking owned. Not really nitpicky with it. Finish was weird but I got what they were going for and liked it. Made Bryan look good.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Who has had better matches in their title run, Cena in 06/07 or Punk in 11/12? I'm thinking Punk when looking at it overall was very consistent including TV matches. Cena had better big matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Would say Cena, tbh. I absolutely love the Umaga and HBK matches. They're some of my favorite stuff ever. Loved Punk's run against Cena, Bryan, Henry & Jericho but I'd go Cena by a small margin. Didn't care for Cena much the summer of '07 but he did get a good match out of Khali which is nearly impossible.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

A story that Hailsabin/tbhaley might appreciate:

I went into my local CEX for another DVD bargain hunting session, this time I was looking for 2007 pay per views. Managed to pick up Backlash, Judgement Day, ONS/Extreme Rules, Vengeance, TGAB, Unforgiven and New years revolution all from that year. 19 for the lot.

Haven't watched any yet but I want to know what matches are worth looking out for. General ratings and comments for these events would also be appreciated. Going to need some hype to get me up for watching that stack of events after tonights six hour marathon of Impact, Wrestle talk TV and TLC!

Definitely Cena. Punk's had too many matches I didn't like that much (SSeries v Del Rio, TLC 3-way, MITB v Bryan, Rumble v Ziggler, ExRules v Jericho, any time he faced Ryback, like...every 3-way he's had). I said a while ago I'd check out Cena's title reign TV year which I obv haven't done yet, but I still plan to do it. I don't really think Punk's TV reign has been THAT great anyway. I like the Bryan and Ziggler matches and loved the Henry match, but he hasn't had anything that touches Cena/Michaels and that match is like 85% Cena.

Cena's masterful selling of the leg after HBK worked on it for ten minutes is one of the highlights of the match IMO.

My answer is predictable but whatever, I go with Cena.

Great matches include: TLC & steel cage with Edge, Umaga, HBK, Backlash 4 way, Orton and even the Khali matches were better than the standards for Khali. I haven't seen the match with Lashley but from what I've heard, it looks like a good match.

From Punk's run, I enjoyed the NoC match with Cena, OTL with Bryan at first (now it's just average to me) and the WM Jericho match was alright. Oh and TLC was okay too. Don't care enough to remember anything else.

I think I mentioned this to you before but I disagree with the Michaels/Cena assessment. Cena looked like a ring general in that match but it was a tremendous effort from both men imo. Michaels did a great job selling the duration of that match. I still don't see what in that match makes it look like it was 85 percent Cena and Michaels was essentially just there.

2007 is not one of the stronger PPV years in recent memory. Backlash was a strong card and arguably the best PPV of the year along with Mania, Rumble, and Survivor Series that year. The two title matches on that show were stellar - Cena/Michaels/Orton/Edge & Taker/Batista LMS. I didn't like Judgment Day, ONS, or Unforgiven. Hardys/WGTT Ladder Match at ONS was good. GAB had a solid main event with Cena/Lashley (maybe even underrated) and the Umaga/Hardy match. Vengeance was average too. Best match was probably the Edge/Batista match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh Cena's year reign> Punk's and I don't even think that's up for a debate.

Cena was really top dog during those times. He always delivered in the main event. Punk delivered as well but shitty booking got the better of him.

In terms of booking and matches, Cena had it better.

Punk just didn't have the booking like Cena did to really make his reign memorable.

Oh and C2D, Cena/Lashley is freaking awesome. You will hear me say a lot when talking about Cena that he has the best timing out of everyone on the roster and that match fully supports my argument. He knows when and how to change the pace of a match.
