Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Revolution is not much better than the last nWo DVD, but the Blu-Ray does a Wrestling Roundtable as an extra. That was my main reason for purchasing. I wish they would release more Legends Of Wrestling discussions. I could listen to Ross, Rhodes, Hayes, and Patterson talk all day!

But the highlight of that roundtable was Nash for sure. I could listen to him all day.

WWE SummerSlam 2012
Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar

Shit, what a disappointment. Sure, the match was solid overall, but as a SummerSlam main event, it failed. Why did they even "fight", what's the backstory here? Because, whatever it was, it seemed like Triple H is really pissed on Lesnar because of something. But here's the problem - he failed miserably in trying to recreate Cena's heroic babyface performance from Extreme Rules. Hunter's agression and rage felt forced, it was like he was trying too hard. Lensar was a good monster heel, but he wasn't great. Didn't like the pace either, and they oversold almost everything, which is a big no no if you want to create a chaotic mayhem. It felt awkward. The only thing I liked was Lesnar focusing on Hunter's arm, and Hunter finding the weak spot in Lesnar's gut. And that's about it. Really, Hunter's faux hero performance almost ruined the whole match. Solid overall, but nothing more.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That Edge promo from Survivor Series 05 was fucking awesome. Amazing how much heat wrestlers can get just by mentioning the sports team of the city they're in.

Didn't Orton do something similar in Survivor Series 03? IIRC, he RKOed some hometown hero or something.

Also, I just finished reviewing the first Orton/Cena yesterday but I really think I should change my style. I analyzed a five minute match and went through everything that takes place and it turned to about 10 rows of text. I can only imagine how much it will be using that style when I get to their ironman match. Nah, I'm just going for a more detailed way of reviewing it in my usual style. Much easier and readable that way.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

To think people gave HHH V Lesnar ****1/2 when it first happened.

Bad match. One of the most disappointing matches of the last few years. *1/2.

Why the fuck they didn't go with Lesnar/Cena II?

That was Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks. He also got powerslammed through a table by Sheamus during the Cena-Sheamus feud. What a fucking CHAMP.

Eddie-Malenko on the ECW Unreleased DVD fucking OWNS hard. **** 1/4 from me, and this set is looking pretty good so far. I'm assuming by looking at the talent involved on the second and third discs, that the first one is a high point. OH WELL.

Plus ; Trips-Lesnar owns , I just need to watch it again before 2012 is over to re-affirm my opinion

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It really is an awesome match, and at the moment I'd have it third in terms of my MOTY list, although I could eat my words when I eventually re-watch it in comparison to the others on my list. So far, barely anything has lived up to it's original ratings besides Punk/Bryan and Lesnar/Cena, so MAYBE it stands a chance though.

Still have yet to see Shield vs Ryback/Hell NO. Have it right here on my computer, just haven't bothered to give it a watch yet. Maybe because I'm cautious when watching anything with RYBACK in it. Although the awesomeness that is AMBROSE should cancel that out.
