Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

TLC

Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara v Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow
-- Pretty good opener. I hate that stupid armdrag Sin Cara does but he wasn't bad in this and actually sold his leg well. Haven't seen a tornado tag in the 'E in a long time so this had an element of freshness to it. The finish was great.

Antonio Cesaro v R-Truth
-- What the fuck were the commentators talking about? Truth shaking off head-rams to the turnbuckles like a crazy person was fun. I guess this was decent? I don't really know. Couldn't focus.

Kofi Kingston v Wade Barrett
-- Don't care about either guy and I swear they've wrestled each other like a million times so I had no interest in this but it was better than I expected. Kofi diving back into the ring and immediately following it up with a suicide dive back to the outside was a nice show of athleticism and a cool sequence. Barrett hit a gnarly backbreaker at one point. Fine match.

Daniel Bryan, Kane & Ryback v The Shield
-- WOW! This was awesome. Like majorly awesome. I'm trying to remember all the things I liked about it but I know I'm forgetting some because of how much awesomeness happened. The teamwork and character work from The Shield raised this to a level above almost all WWE spotfests. Ambrose was the king of the planet here. Seriously, he looked like a complete star. His facial after the double suplex onto the ladder by Ryback was one of the greatest things I've ever seen. Speaking of Ryback, he came out of this looking great as well. Bryan's shine segment was great. The way The Shield took out and BURIED Kane was great. Loved the chaotic feel to it. I wouldn't hesitate to call this a borderline classic. It truly stood out as chaotic and violent within the realm of WWE.

Eve v Naomi
-- Nothing match to give the crowd a breather after TLC. Naomi tried to do some stuff. Eve is great.

Big Show v Sheamus
-- The weakest of their PPV matches but still solid. Show kicking the chair out of Sheamus' hand and the ring the first time he tried to introduce it was neat. I also like the short knee strike Show's been using. The nearfalls were good as has been the case throughout their series. Match was a tad plodding at times and didn't hit the heights their previous finishing stretches did so yeah, it's a notch below HiaC and SSeries but good nonetheless.

Alberto Del Rio, The Miz & Brooklyn Brawler v 3MB
-- Skipped it. Del Rio's a face now? I'll give that a chance I guess.

Dolph Ziggler v John Cena
-- Really good main event. They worked a smarter, less spot-based ladder match and it was great for the most part, then they seemed to kind of stall until the Vickie/AJ interference and that killed a lot of the momentum they had built up. Hated Cena setting up a table instead of trying to climb a ladder after hitting Dolph with the steel steps early on. Made no sense whatsover and King alluded to that on commentary. Sleeper hold table spot was fairly obvious but still a good spot to use. Cena lifting the ladder with Dolph on it was a dope visual and Cena's rana, despite not coming off perfectly, was cool to see. Marked out a bit for AJ turning on Cena + Ziggler's superkick. All in all I thought this was really good but certain elements kept it from being GREAT. The good certainly outweighed the bad for me though.

FELLA might be willing to step it up even more. I can see Sheamus and Ryback switching spots in the WWE Title and World Title scenes next year too, especially if Ryback wins the Royal Rumble Match.

With his failed wwe title shots I definitely see ryback winning the rumble next year, he needs to win a world title.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I hope if they do Punk-Cena again in the future that they focus on the fact that Cena has never beaten Punk on a HUGE stage, and how Punk has Cena's number. They could do almost a Tommy Dreamer-Raven thing where Punk keeps winning and winning and winning until finally he gets his come uppance as Cena has the last laugh. Plus, I feel that they need to have this match on PPV atleast once per year due to the sheer awesomeness that they have as chemistry.

My guess is that Orton goes heel soon while Cena stays face. Also guessing that Punk gets another run as a face after Heyman leaves (whenever that would be) and probably a match with Lesnar. Punk-Sheamus for the WWE championship could be a big time 3-4 month feud if they did it the right way.





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

So watched HHH/Batista HIAC earlier. Wasn't feeling it. Also wasn't giving it my full attention though. Re-watch required.

Nice to see Ambrose getting more and more praise for his work in particular in the TLC war. Really glad that he's become yet another worker who's proven this myth that indy wrestlers getting called up to WWE isn't something that will kill their ability to work good matches and put on great performances.

Also in keeping with the Christmas JOY~! around here, I'll probably start watching the remaining Rockers/Brainbusters series Cal gave links to tomorrow since I've finished my series and the '89 matches I watched a couple of months back between them was excellent and made me want to see everything they'd ever done together.

Oh, not you, too, WOOLCOCK. I expect it from Cal, but not from you.

I'll get started on my HBK/Taker series this weekend, and have it wrapped up shortly thereafter.
