Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Triple threat matches are fun. It's the fatal four ways that can be a big pile of overbooked shit.

Anyway, I re-watched Taker/HBK WM 25 and well it's no longer my fave match and it's no longer a 5 star match

I really didn't like it on this second watch. Too much of a finisher fest.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I've watched Michaels/Taker from Mania 25 several times and sat through it just fine. Still a ****3/4

I found it really difficult to sit through Taker/HHH HIAC though. That shit was so boring to sit back and watch through.

I agree. I don't think I've ever seen that match in it's entirety, not sure why. It's slow as hell, but if I can sit through Diesel/Bret, this should be easy but no.

EDIT: I thought it said Taker/HBK, not Taker/HHH. My statement above is in regards to Taker/HBK HIAC.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The whole backbone to that match is mostly drama, and once your not watching it live, it doesn't really have the same effect. Far too many rest spots for my liking and just overall too slow paced. Had that match been shortened by 5-7 minutes, I think I would've liked it much more. Still a great match, don't get me wrong, and Top 5 in 2012 for sure, but I don't think I ever want to sit through it again after I recently rewatched it.

What is your MOTY KingCal?

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I generally don't go back and watch matches.
The initial experience while watching a match is important to me and i don't think you can take that away when judging a match.

I also rarely watch big matches that i already know the results of, going into a match knowing a wrestler will survive and go on to win really ruins the experience.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ah fuck it! My MOTY is Ambrose/Regal II. I don't care if it was from FCW lol.

I have seen Bryan/Punk about 3 times now and I always get bored halfway into it. Not my cup of tea.

As for HHH/Taker, meh. I'm sick and tired of stating why I don't think it's MOTY.

Btw, Diesel/Bret is awesome!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Unpopular opinion, but mine is Shield/Ryback & Hell No. I don't give a fuck. I was watching that match while I was out of my seat for 10 whole minutes, and ever since then I loved it even more. Rewatched that shit 10 times and never gets old. Fricking love that match. That match was my type of match. Right guys went over, amazing and well placed spots that made sense, and a good story told in the match.

I have it at ****3/4 and my opinion hasn't budged since.
