Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've yet to really sit and down and watch the Rollins/Ambrose series. I hardly doubt it could top the Ambrose/Regal matches though.

Extreme Rules 2012

Falls Count Anywhere
Randy Orton vs. Kane - *** 1/4

Brodus Clay vs. Dolph Ziggler - **

Intercontinental Championship - Tables Match
Big Show (c) vs. Cody Rhodes - **

World Heavyweight Championship - 2 out of 3 Falls
Sheamus (c) vs. Daniel Bryan - ****

Ryback vs. 2 Jobbers - SQUASH

WWE Championship - Chicago Street Fight
CM Punk (c) vs. Chris Jericho - ****

Divas Championship
Nikki Bella (c) vs. Layla - *

Extreme Rules Match
John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar - **** 1/2

Overall: 9.25/10

- Orton/Kane was a great opener that got a lot of time. Really fun match that went all over the building, but I do have my gripes. As it normally is with EVERY form of brawl that Orton's in, he gets all the big spots while his opponent gets none. Orton beat the hell out of him with the chair, got the ddt off the announce table, the superplex, AND the finish. What'd Kane get? A chokeslam. The finish is just goofy too. An RKO on a flat chair is gonna hurt Orton quite a bit you'd think & the way Kane takes them his face doesn't even hit the mat. That was actually the same finish they used from a Street Fight they had on SD last year too. Luckily the two have surprisingly great chemistry so it makes for a good watch if you can ignore those things I pointed out.

- The filler on this show was hit and miss. I had no problem with Clay/Ziggler. Fun stuff all around with some great looking offense, plus the crowd was 90% behind Zig. Ryback can go fuck off and the Divas match was just really out of place.

- Cody vs. Big Show is so much fun. Cody getting destroyed & his comedic selling is hilarious, plus the finish was pretty creative. Throw that in with the postmatch stuff and a funny ass conversation between Book & Cole and it gets a big from me.

- My comments on the three big matches can all be found in the 2012 MOTYC Thread. The show as a whole is seriously one of my all time favorite PPVs or shows from any company. There's so much fun & so much variety, plus 3 fucking excellent matches. I can't ask for much more.

Ambrose/Regal was awesome as well. Regal's arm work, Ambrose's selling, and the story of Ambrose wanting a rematch and Regal's apprehensiveness of him ending his career in between the matches made it that much more important.

If you guys can track down the series of AMAZING matches between Seth Rollins and Richie Steamboat for the FCW 15 Championship, give those a watch. They are absolutely amazing.

WWE No Way Out 2004 - WWE Heavyweight Title: Brock Lesnar vs. Eddie Guerrero

Tremendous match. This might be the greatest Big Man vs. Little Man match ever. I can seriously say Eddie was on top of his game here. The crowd was super hot for him and he wrestled an amazing match. Lesnar more than held up his end too, reminding me how great he got in such a short period of time. Itís a shame that they never got to do a rematch. I donít even feel like the Goldberg interference ruined anything because it didn't lead directly to the finish, yet it was booked perfectly to pay off the earlier confrontation in the night and continues a major feud right into WrestleMania. Itís simple thinking ahead booking. ****1/2

Their fourth encounter was really good too with Ambrose working on Rollins' injured arm and Rollins selling. Their most recent encounter for the FCW Heavyweight Championship I had a newfound appreciation for it for Ambrose's selling of his shoulder that was dislocated from the Regal match and how he was forced to change his offense a bit. I also liked how Ambrose worked on Rollins' leg and how that affected him towards the end of the match. Overall, these two have amazing chemistry and their recent 6 Man TLC Match gives me excitement on what they can do in the WWE. How would you rank their matches?

For me it's:

1. Ambrose/Rollins III: ****1/2
2. Ambrose/Rollins V: ****
3. Ambrose/Rollins I: ***3/4
4. Ambrose/Rollins II: ***1/2
5. Ambrose/Rollins IV: ***1/4
I completely agree. I would probably give Ambrose/Rollins I **** though. With Rollins being a more natural face, I can definitely see him splitting from The Shield first or Reigns and Ambrose turning on him or something which would then HOPEFULLY lead to a great story between Rollins and Ambrose. It's a shame it is too soon but them two deserve a Wrestlemania match to showcase that talent.

Unforgiven 2007

Cm Punk vs Elijah Burke Ecw title : Not really a good match but it's an okay opener. Good work on Punk's back by Burke with a good selling from the champ. ** 1/2

MVP/Hardy(c) vs Deuce n Domino wwe tag team title : The only thing interesting is the fact that Hardy and Mvp are rivals.**

HHH vs Carlito no DQ only for carlito : The stipulation is strange but makes the match interesting. Good use of trash cans, ring bell and even dust from carlito. HHH is winning with a lowblow (ref not watching) and a pedigree. Funny. ***

Candice vs beth phoenix : skipped

Batista vs Rey vs Khali WHC match : Thank god Rey is in this match. His selling is top notch. The ending sequence is very good. 619 on batista, 619 on Kahli followed by a springboard seated senton for the count. Batista stops the count and powerbombs rey on khali. Final spinebuster on khali and new WHC! ** 1/2

Kendrick/London vs Cade/murdoch world tag team championship. That is one hell of a tag bout. Amazing chemistry between these 4 men. London and Kendrick are flying everywhere and the champs are stiffer than ever. A lot of great tag team moves.Crowd is totally dead *** 1/2

Cena vs Orton wwe title match : This match is a shame. Nothing happens. *

Undertaker(return) vs Henry : The crowd is dead but i don't blame it after the wwe title match that just happened. Very bad match. Henry is not in a good day, and in a terrible shape. taker does nothing special. He wins with the last ride. * 1/2

Wow what a shitty PPV. One of the worst i've seen. I can't believe this is the second time i watch this but i'm in a 2007 mood for the holidays. Best match of the card Cade/murdoch vs Kendrick/london which is a little gem of tag team wrestling... 2 last matches are absolutely atrocious.

I don't know why you're putting yourself through torture by watching stuff from 2007. That year was truly awful. I laugh whenever people claim that 2007 WASN'T the worst year in WWE history.
