Exactly. I also thought continuing their feud until the Over the Limit PPV was even more ridiculous given the fact that they put so much time into Lawler and Cole's match at WrestleMania 27 which should have ended with Lawler beating Cole. It dragged on way too long for no reason at all. The fans wanted to see Cole get his comeuppance at WrestleMania 27 but instead, it took two PPVs after that to finally see Jerry Lawler get his revenge on Cole, making their Mania match pointless.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't see how some thought the opener to TLC was anything special. Pretty lame bout that Rhodes Scholars did their best to make moderately watchable.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

*** for me after a re-watch. Went a bit too long I'd say. It seems to be a very polarizing match. I've seen people think it's great, good, or bad.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ziggler/Cena was okay-ish. Ziggler's bumping and selling were the highlights, but most of what went on didn't make any sense. Cena's botching left and right, psychology was mind-numbing etc.

The best thing about the match was Cena's facial expression after the match, where he is shown to be contemplating the irony of life.

Couldn't disagree more. Everything in the match made sense. I could break it down move-by-move and explain why said wrestler did what he did. Spectacular opener. Everything a tables match should be.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Two spots happened. I can think of 100 ways a tables match could be done better. First one for free: Don't put Sin Cara in it.

Lame match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I don't care about spots. The finish was the only spot that mattered in that it came out of nowhere, but looking back it made perfect sense. Like you slap yourself for not knowing it was going to happen.

Sin Cara was pretty awesome in the match. Not sure what you were watching. What did he do wrong?
